James “Jimmy” Watts (1878 - 1957) was the husband of Madge Miller and the father of Jack Watts. He was the brother-in-law of Agatha Christie. His family lived at Abney Hall and also owned another property just 14 miles away called Upper House. Agatha Christie visited and stayed at both places on various occasions when she visited her sister.

Christie dedicated her novels The A.B.C. Murders (1936) and Hercule Poirot's Christmas (1938) to him.
