In the novella Murder in the Mews, Frederick Hogg was the young son of James Hogg, the chauffeur at 18 Bardsley Mews Gardens. Frederick was one of the witnesses interviewed about the death of Barbara Allen. Like the other witnesses he had seen a man with the description of Major Eustace leaving her house at about ten-twenty the night she died. Frederick had been near enough to hear what he said as he left: "Think it over and let me know." He did not see Barbara as she was behind the door. In answer to a question by Japp, Frederick said that it was the man who shut the door. He had pulled it with a bang before getting into his car.

Portrayals[]

Frederick Hogg was played by Nicholas Delve in the film adaptation of the story which was episode 2 of series 1 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot drama series, where the character is billed as "Freddie". There he also helped Hastings work on his car while the others were inside the house interviewing witnesses.
