There were some local "characters" called Tickell in Cambridgeshire.
Joseph Tickell - called himself Squire Kim Joseph Hollick De La Taste Tickell. He ran the Tickell Arms - he died ~1990 I think, here's a piece on him
"Kim de la Taste Tickell - the late landlord of the Tickell Arms at Whittlesford, near Cambridge - used to terrify customers who didn't meet his approval, as they walked through the door. "I'm not having south London garage proprietors and their tarts in here," he would scream. "Out, out, out!" His "insufferables" were left-wingers, black people and "modern" women. Anyone wearing a CND badge was immediately banned"
He was also known for chasing people out of his pub with an African spear.
Born 1917, Joseph H de la T Tickell, mother Couch, Fulham Reg District.
