Tittlebat Titmouse is a version of Samuel Warren's 1839 novel, Ten Thousand a Year, which has been abridged by American author, Cyrus Townsend Brady (1861 – 1920).

Samuel Warren (1807 – 1877), was a British barrister, novelist and MP with an in-depth knowledge of British common law and the original novel was based on a famous forgery case from the 1830s, where a claim was made to a vacant earldom using fake documents.
