Sir Charles Wyndham, Kt                    1837-1919
Charles was born on 23 March 1837, Charles Culverwell, the son of Major Richard Culverwell and Jane Lloyd. His father wanted him to become a medical doctor, but Charles really had a talent and a desire to go into the theatre, He did follow his fathers wishes, and become a doctor, but ended up making the theatre his life's profession. Having obtained his doctors degree just as the American Civil War started, he did sail to American and became a Military Surgeon with the Federal Army. The details of his very interesting life are well laid out in his lengthy obituary (see below), so they will not be repeated here.
Charles first married Emma Silberrad in 1860. They separated in 1897, and after her death in 1916, he remarried, taking the actress Mary Moore. He first used the stage name Wyndham on 30 November 1860 at the Royalty Theatre in Soho.
