Father Usk was a priest accused of being stingy by Emily Faldstool (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies; 23).


Usk is a city in Monmouthshire, Wales, and may be the source of Bellairs' fictional priest. The city takes its English name from the River Usk - a name derived from an ancient word for river which may also mean "abounding in fish.[1]"
