The character also appeared in comic strip format in the School Friend comic book, which was published from 1950 to 1965; she later moved to June, and, when that title ended, moved to Tammy.

She was created by Charles Hamilton, using the pseudonym Hilda Richards, in the story paper School Friend in 1919. Billy Bunter was a central character in the Greyfriars School stories which appeared in the boys' story paper The Magnet from 1907 to 1940, and Bessie's first appearance was in a 1919 Greyfriars story. After being mentioned a few times by her brother in the Greyfriars School series, she appeared in a long series of her own stories, which were set at Cliff House School, the girls-only equivalent of Greyfriars.For questions on access or troubleshooting, please check our FAQs, and if you can''t find the answer there, please contact us.

Bessie Bunter was the sister of William Bunter and the wife of Sir Harold Wharton, the infamous British dictator known as Big Brother. In addition, she featured as an adult character in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier where she married the former Greyfriars schoolboy Harry Wharton.

Following Wharton's death in 1951, she became seriously affected by grief, and allegedly committed suicide, although it's also very possible that she was killed by spies sent by Gerald O'Brien and Robert Cherry, which they orchestrated the death of her husband. Content you previously purchased on Oxford Biblical Studies Online or Oxford Islamic Studies Online has now moved to Oxford Reference, Oxford Handbooks Online, Oxford Scholarship Online, or What Everyone Needs to Know®. She was as unappealing as her brother Billy, being conceited, untruthful, gluttonous and obese, but she was rather more domineering than he was and would usually impose her will by nagging, or, in the case of her brothers, by administering hefty slaps to the head. Elizabeth Gertrude Bunter, better known as Bessie Bunter, is a fictional character created by Charles Hamilton, who also created her more famous brother Billy Bunter.Bessie Bunter was essentially a female counterpart to her brother Billy, sharing many characteristics with her brother, including her large size and large appetite.
