Accounts of misers were included in such 19th century works as G. Wilson's four-volume compendium of short biographies, The Eccentric Mirror (1807).

The title was more deserved by Joseph Mac William, who was found dead of a fire on 13 June 1826.Others include John Little (who appears in Merryweather), Reverend Mr Jones of Blewbury (also in Merryweather) and Dick Jarrel, whose surname was really Jarrett and an account of whom appeared in the Annual Register for 1806.The many volumes of this publication also figured among Mr Boffin's purchases.The American Hetty Green, who despite being a multimillionaire had also a reputation as a miser, involved herself in a six-year lawsuit to obtain her aunt’s fortune, only to have it proved against her that she had forged the will.More modern times yield the Chinese example of an 80-year-old affronted by being called a miser in a poem by his son-in-law.
