General Notes: Husband - Charles Kemble


The first to use detailed historical sets and costumes on the English stage. Noted for his supporting roles in several Shakespeare plays, but at his best in comedy. He made his first recorded appearance as Orlando in Shakespeare's "As you like it" at Sheffield in 1792 or 1793. His London debut occurred on 21 Apr 1794 in "MacBeth". He played Malcolm to his brother John Philip's "Macbeth". In comedy, he was frequently supported by his wife. He became manager of Covent Garden but nearly went bankrupt until his daughter Fanny made her debut there in 1829 . Visits to the US with his daughter Fanny in 1832 and 1834 also brought acclaim. Due to increasing deafness, he retired from the stage in Dec 1836 but gave readings of Shakespeare until 1840. After retirement , he was given the post of Examiner of Plays, a Government position he resigned in 1840 to his son, John Mitchell, a distinguished philologist.

I have attached a map of London's West End showing the location of Kemble St., Drury Lane, which his brother, John Philip, managed, Covent Gardens, which he was a part owner of, with his brother, and the location of his home.


General Notes: Child - John Mitchell Kemble


Attended Cambridge and became an Apostle, a small group of free thinkers at Cambridge. Another one of the Apostles at the time was Alfred Tennyson, the poet. They both went to Spain in 1830 to run guns for General Torrijos, who was trying to overthrow King Ferdinand VII of Spain . The plot was a failure and one of his British friends was executed . He returned to England in 1831. In 1833 he published the first translation into modern English of the old Anglo Saxon saga, Beowulf, "Poems of Beowulf" . Thereafter he went to Gottingen University to study philology, and, having achieved a modest success as a scholar and archaeologist, settled for a time in Germany with his wife, the daughter of one of his professors. In 1840 he obtained the British government position, Examiner of Plays (which was the official censor), upon his father's retirement from that post. (Very few plays were rejected during their time on the job).He held this post until 1857. He was followed in this position by his good friend William Bodham Donne (another former Apostle at Cambridge). His best known book, "History of the Saxons in England" was written in 1848. You can read volume 1 of that book here and volume 2 here .

I have attached excerpts from his diary, held in the Morgan Library in NYC to illustrate his poetry and adventures in Spain. I have also included his drawing of the family coat of arms from that diary.

He died and was buried in Ireland. I am attaching a photo of the monument erected in his honor at his gravesite in Dublin. death bed photo
