Sir Lord Chuffrey is an Emerald City Paltos baron and the late husband of Lady Glinda. He also served as the master of Mockbeggar Hall, a country estate on the border of the Emerald City and Munchkinland.
He appears exclusively in the novels.
He is first mentioned by Fiyero as being a Paltos baron and is later shown to be quite wealthy and a businessman. Glinda and Chuffrey seem to work as a team, for wherever he does business, she does good. When asked if she has children, Glinda replies Chuffrey is "dry as a baked walnut," implying that he is infertile.
He is seen briefly in a wheelchair and seems to be infirm. Later on in the story it is revealed that he dies. Later, Glinda indicates that though he was a many wonderful things, he was not stupid, which made him "rather less fun than Glinda would have liked".
