Kemble, Elizabeth

▪ British actress [1763-1841]
née Satchell
born 1763?, London
died Jan. 20, 1841, near Durham, Durham, Eng.

      English actress of great ability whose career was subordinated to that of her husband, George Stephen Kemble. Elizabeth Satchell was a talented performer when she married Kemble in 1783, and for several years they acted together, with critics consistently noting her superiority. When engagements took her husband out of town she accompanied him to the detriment of her own career. She outlived him by 19 years.
