Mary Charlotte (née Moore), Lady Wyndham (1861-1931), Actress and theatre manager; former wife of James Albery, and later wife of Sir Charles Wyndham
Her friend T. Edgar Pemberton (rather flatteringly) describes her presence on stage in Wild Oats in 1886:
The part is not an easy one to play, but she endowed it with a peculiar charm and invested it with a sympathy that were alike invaluable. Her sweet face suggested all that is beautiful and pure in woman, and her acting was at once captivating and beyond criticism … Truly did a critic say, ‘Few of those who saw Miss Moore in this character will soon forget her musical intonation of the catch-phrase, “my pleasant cousin”, given to Lady Amaranth.’
