Fallowthought was one of Martin Pale's Fairy-servants; Gilbert Norrell described him as a "a very minor spirit" who probably did not have much influence over the Aureate magician. This servant was so little known he was not included in John Segundus's work A Complete Description of Dr Pale's fairy-servants, their Names, Histories, Characters, and the Services they performed for Him.

It was Gilbert Norrell who told Mr Segundus about Fallowthought, when the former came to visit him at his residence of Hurtfew Abbey in late 1806. Mr Norrell knew of Pale's fairy-servant from a book written by the magicians Holgarth and Pickle, in which their meetings with him were mentioned [1].
