Thingstable (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Thingstable

Mr. Thingstable; Mr. Constable: a ludicrous affectation of delicacy in avoiding the pronunciation of the first syllable in the title of that officer, which in sound has some similarity to an indecent monosyllable.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
