    3. Hello. Thanks for sharing your findings, very interesting. I love the titles of William's plays! Virginius the rum'un needs to be revived immediately! :-) On Tuesday, 13 August 2019, 02:36:00 BST, <genea52@gmail.com> wrote: I was on this list 16 years ago, looking for answers.  I've learned a lot about the theatre scene in London in the mid 1800s since then. I found two William Rogers in the theatre at the same time. They were born within a year or two of each other and as one star faded, the other rose. Unsurprising, I am not the only one who was confused by this, and history has recorded them as one and the same. Mine was born 1802 in Stoke Damerel near Plymouth and grew up around the docks. He married Elizabeth Pindar in 1825, an actress, her father being John Pindar of the Bath Theatre Royal.  William worked in the minor theatres of London - Britannia, Hoxton, Sadler's Wells, to name but a few. He was also a playwright - penning many of the burlesques, particularly those that involved sailors - Murphy's Weather Alamanac ,  Virginius the rum'un ,Tom Tiller and Jack Mizen,  Black Hugh, The Outlaw;  Paul, the reprobate, The Murder Hole, The Tinker of Todcaster, The Heart That Can Feel for Another and C yril Woodbine. He managed Sadler's Wells with Tom Taylor in 1837 and he died in 1863. The other William Rogers was actually William Thomas Rogers born 1804 in Stoke East Nottingham. He was signed up for the Haymarket Drury Lane (a Major theatre) on 1 Oct 1846 -  the exact day that the other William's wife died leaving him with many children to care for. My William battled on - he married again, to Maria Ridley and kept writing and acting until he died.The other William also married twice but had no children. He worked at Drury Lane until he died in 1876.  I know I can't change the history books but hopefully this will remain among your achives for future reference. _______________________________________________ Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebpref Unsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/theatre-uk@rootsweb.com Privacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9 Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blog RootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community

Their mother was Margaret Wallace - a red-headed Ulster woman who, according to my father (her grandson) was absolutely brilliant - tough as nails but made each grandchild thing they were her favourite. (https://gray-ons.org/secondsite/g0/p19.htm ) She had at least ten children - all but one girls - born from 1857-1877. One was my grandmother - but my father was clear that at least two were on the stage. As far as I am aware, most lived into the 20th Century - but I have yet to look for all their marriages and look for them in the 1901 and 1911 census. Now that more and more marriage Parish Records are appearing on line - I will redouble my efforts. Many thanks for your response.

    1. [THEATRE-UK] STEWART Bolton
    2. Hi Chris I notice that, when I replied to you, I was talking about the girl who was dancing at Treharris.. However, her surname was given as STUART. I didn't notice the change being very busy at the time. But, it still could be the same, if the period is right because the census takers often put down the spelling in their head, without necessarily checking. since that would have been, I would have thought, a Welsh census taker, it could turn out any way. After doing thousands of transcriptions, I've learnt never to take anything for granted! - Regards Glenda ----Original Message----- From: theatre-uk-request@rootsweb.com [mailto:theatre-uk-request@rootsweb.com] Sent: 27 July 2018 11:39 To: theatre-uk@rootsweb.com Subject: THEATRE-UK Digest, Vol 13, Issue 6 Send THEATRE-UK mailing list submissions to theatre-uk@rootsweb.com To subscribe or unsubscribe via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to theatre-uk-request@rootsweb.com You can reach the person managing the list at theatre-uk-owner@rootsweb.com When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific than "Re: Contents of THEATRE-UK digest..."

    1. [THEATRE-UK] TOM REZENE
    2. ROWAN GIBBS
    3. I have a query, not looking for an ancestor but for the real name of a Victorian acrobat. “Tom Rezene” was an acrobat himself from the mid-1870s as one of “The Brothers Rezene” then a trainer and manager of young acrobats — Dello and Zetti, then Sillo and Zetti, then Dello, Tom and Willie (“The Marvellous Rezenes”), then “The Flying Rezenes”, then “Jupiter” (a girl). There are a lot of clues to his identity but none have yielded the answer. He was not, as has been suggested, the same person as Edward Trevanion (who died in 1887) and was not the Charles Rezene of Rezene and Robini.— The clues include addresses — November 1881: 6 Beech street, Preston – but not there in 1881 census June 1893: 5 Sydney Street, Manchester; July 1894: 18 Wenlock Tce, City Rd, London In 1893 he is an agent, and describing himself as “Proprietor of a Music Hall and Two Circuses”. His wife was the serio Ella Lee, sister of comedian Charles Seel, and their family name was Brown (parents Fred and Mary Ann Brown, stage name Lee). In the Era of 7 Oct.1877 Tom advertises that “on and after November 19th Ella Lee will be known as Ella Rezene”, and on November 19th they were playing in Carlisle. There are four brides named Brown in Carlisle in that quarter (even two named Isab*ella*), but none of the four marriages can be his, based on these couples in future censuses and on the maiden names of the mothers in two births he advertises— In the Era of 28 March 1880 he announces a son born in Leeds on March 25th 1880, and in Era 20 August 1881 he mentions another son born August 7th 1881, probably in Liverpool. It is intriguing that one can know so much about someone but not their real name… Any suggestions welcome Rowan Gibbs

    1. [THEATRE-UK] ALFRED HYDE 1900-1918

    3. Alfred Hyde (my great granduncle) was a music hall artiste, born 1866, who died in Chorlton upon Medlock following a fall from a trapeze in 1918. He is said to have performed in shows with Charlie Chaplin in Istanbul and Fiume in about 1916. I have been unable to find any more information about his acts. I have googled his name unsuccessfully. Can anyone suggest where else I might look? Thanks Lawrence Pearse

Hi LesleyThe 1916 Who's Who in the Theatre has quite a long entry for Constance Collier but nothing for the others.Best  Joanna From: Lesley Gent <lmgmay1955@gmail.com> To: theatre-uk@rootsweb.com Sent: Wednesday, 25 July 2018, 12:15 Subject: [THEATRE-UK] Theatrical Ancestors - HARDIE, TAYLOR I'm glad to see the list is active once more. I have a number of theatrical ancestors that I'd like to learn more about. The Edwardian actress Constance Collier - born Laura Constance Hardie - was a first cousin of my maternal great grandfather. Her father Auguste Cheetham Hardie acted as Cheet Hardie in the 1870s and 1880s - and his brother Archibald Alfred Hardie acted for a brief while. I'd like to learn more about either of these two men. Also of interest is a mysterious figure on my father's side of the family. Nell Taylor - or possibly her (American?) mother Sarah Taylor - were music hall artistes in the late 1800s. I'm not convinced that their surnames were more than stage names, but I can't prove it. Family stories have one or the other involved with the Carl Rosa Opera - and I'd welcome anything on this organization. Regards, Lesley -- *Lesley M.

    1. [THEATRE-UK] STEWART Bolton
    2. Hi Chris Bearing in mind the close relationship, and distance) between Ulster and Scotland, it is not unlikely that this girl moved to Scotland and, again to Tyne area. There was so much movement for employment in this age. My Madge's grandfather was Irish, who moved to Chesterfield and his son, Madges father moved to Tyneside as a jobbing bricklayer. Her mother was born in India, her father being in the British Army there, but coming from Dorset. He was discharged at Alnwick in Durham and then moved to South Shields. Her grandmother was born in Scotland but went to India , as above, and then so to South Shields. I know there was a lot of movement from Scotland to Tyne area for work too. Anyway, lots of luck with your research. It took me quite a bit to get all these facts in a row! I never expected to find Madge in a Welsh census. I had gone past it several times, as I was looking for her proper name of Margaret.

Their mother was Margaret Wallace - a red-headed Ulster woman who, according to my father (her grandson) was absolutely brilliant - tough as nails but made each grandchild thing they were her favourite. (https://gray-ons.org/secondsite/g0/p19.htm ) She had at least ten children - all but one girls - born from 1857-1877. One was my grandmother - but my father was clear that at least two were on the stage. As far as I am aware, most lived into the 20th Century - but I have yet to look for all their marriages and look for them in the 1901 and 1911 census. Now that more and more marriage Parish Records are appearing on line - I will redouble my efforts. Many thanks for your response.
