I presume you want this:

UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 4, 1000)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Mr.%';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 4, 1000)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Mr %';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 5, 1000)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Miss%';

UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 4,)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Mr.%';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 4)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Mr %';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 5)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Miss%';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 4)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Mrs%';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 5)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Mrs.%';
UPDATE yourtable SET b = SUBSTRING(b, 6)
  WHERE b LIKE 'Miss.%';
