Gladwin Scuttle is the mother of William "Twit" Scuttle, the sister of Arabel Chitter, and the wife of Elijah Scuttle.

She and Elijah fell in love when he fell into the yard of the empty house in Deptford, having fought off the owl that had been carrying him. She tended to his injuries and later moved to Fennywolde with him. Their relationship was generally regarded by those in the field as disgraceful, for she was a house mouse and he a fieldmouse. Still, their marriage is a happy and successful one.
