  • Good-stock, the Host (plaid well) alias, the Lord Frampul. He pretends to be a Gentleman and a Scholar, neglected by the Times, turns Host, and keeps an Inn, the Sign of the Light Heart in Barnet: is supposed to have one only Son, but is found to have none, but two Daughters, Frances and Lætitia, who was lost young, &c.
  • Lovel. A compleat Gentleman, a Soldier and a Scholar, is a melancholy Guest in the Inn: first quarrell'd, after much honour'd and belov'd by the Host. He is known to have been Page to the old Lord Beaufort, follow'd him in the French Wars, after a Companion of his Studies, and left Guardian to his Son. He is assisted in his Love to the Lady Frampul, by the Host, and the Chambermaid Prudence. He was one that acted well too.
  • Ferret. Who is also called Stote and Vermin, is Lovel's Servant, a Fellow of a quick nimble Wit, knows the Manners and Affections of People, and can make profitable and timely discoveries of them.
  • Frank. Suppos'd a Boy, and the Hosts Son, borrowed to be drest for a Lady, and set up as a stale by Prudence, to catch Beaufort or Latimer, proves to be Lætita, Sister to Frances, and Lord Frampul's younger Daughter, stoln by a Beggar-woman, shorn, put into Boys Apparel, sold to the Host, and brought up by him as his Son.
  • Nurse. A poor Chair-woman in the Inn, with one Eye, that tends the Boy, is thought the Irish Beggar that sold him, but is truly the Lady Frampul, who left her home melancholick, and jealous that her Lord lov'd her not, because she brought him none but Daughters, and lives unknown to her Husband, as he to her.
  • Frances. Supposed the Lady Frampul, being reputed his sole Daughter and Heir, the Barony descending upon her, is a Lady of great Fortunes, and Beauty, but phantastical: thinks nothing a felicity, but to have a multitude of Servants, and be call'd Mistress by them, comes to the Inn to be merry, with a Chambermaid only, and her Servants her Guests, &c.
  • Prudence. The Chamber-maid is elected Sovereign of the Sports in the Inn, Governs all, Commands, and so orders, as the Lord Latimer is exceedingly taken with her, and takes her to his Wife, in conclusion.
  • Lord Latimer and Lord Beaufort, are a pair of young Lords, Servants and Guests to the Lady Frampul, but as Latimer falls enamour'd of Prudence, so doth Beaufort on the Boy, the Hosts Son, set up for Lætitia, the younger Sister, which she proves to be indeed.
  • Sir Glorious Tipto. A Knight, and Colonel, hath the luck to think well of himself, without a Rival, talks gloriously of any thing, but very seldom is in the right. He is the Ladies Guest, and her Servant too; but this day utterly neglects his Service, or that him. For he is so enamour'd on the Fly of the Inn, and the Militia below Stairs, with Hodge Huffle, and Bat Burst, Guests that come in, and Trundle, Barnabe, &c. as no other Society relisheth with him.
  • Fly. Is the Parasite of the Inn, Visiter general of the House, one that had been a strolling Gipsee, but now is reclam'd, to be Inflamer of the Reckonings.
  • Peirce. The Drawer, Knighted by the Colonel, stil'd Sir Pierce, and young Anone, one of the chief of the Infantry.
  • Jordan. The Chamberlain, another of the Militia, and an Officer, Commands the Tertia of the Beds.
  • Jug. The Tapster, a Through-fare of News.
  • Peck. The Hostler.
  • Bat Burst. A broken Citizen, an in and in Man.
  • Hodge Huffle. A Cheater, his Champion.
  • Nick Stuff. The Ladies Taylor.
  • Pinnacia Stuff. His Wife.
  • Trundle. A Coachman.
  • Barnabe. A hir'd Coachman.
  • Staggers, the Smith, Tree, the Sadler: only talk'd on.
