  4. Edward Thomas Rogersom

    I think this is the right forum for this man as he certainly appears to be both a Wanderer and a pretty darned good Actor. On his marriage to Maria Griffiths on December 2, 1849 his occupation is indicated as a Tragedian which I believe is connected to the theatre. He indicates that he is of...

  20. Smile Music Hall/Theatre artists in Margate 1918

    I am having great difficulty tracing anything about my Grandmothers life in Music Hall or the theatre. All I can find is that she was in Margate in 1918 where she married so I suspect she was appearing there at this time. I know not her name if there was a "stage name", only her birth name of Ada...
