William Thomas - Apple Glory's uncle
An Edinburgh man dressed in black sits underneath an umbrella and next to a large box of fruit. He has a red face and spectacles balanced on a large nose. He wears a black hat and holds a cloak around his shoulders.

The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Willie Thomas

Willie Thomas seems dismayed;
he hardly knows where he must start
to recoup all that he has paid.
His goods are rotting on his cart.
There's no more profit to be made
Dear Apple Glory, so appealing
is stealing all her uncle's trade.
