Hi

I found Grace Edith DUDLEY n 1877 Melbourne, married Charles Cameron Leslie CHERRY in 1898 Strand London - both were actors. They went to NY in 1904- he had been there before in 1899. Charles died 1931 in Sussex and left just over 220 quid to his sister Gladys who had married George O Pringle in 1928 ( no chdn)..probate on Ancestry.com

interesting wedding announcement:

The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA : 1889 - 1931) Monday 21 March 1898
..
One of the most interesting Anglo-colonial news items of a verv dull week is that concern ing the marriage of Miss Grace Dudley to Mr. Charles Cherry, son of Lady Emily Cherry and grandson of the late Countess of Rothes. The marriage was quietly solemnised on Saturday at one of the Strand churches. The bride groom, by the way, is one of the profession and is playing a small part in 'A Bachelor's Romance/' at the Globe Theatre.


It appears Grace and an E DUDLEY sailed to Sydney NSW in 1894 ( possibly)

and
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Actor-CHARLES-CHERRY-hand-...

also google Grace Dudley actress...there is a bit for her too!

Quite a lot of mentions in the British papers, but don't knwo what happened to Grace in the 1900's

and in the Aust papers..eg:

1898
Miss Grace Dudley, a Melbourne actress, who has been acknowledged to be the most charming Cinderella of the last London pan- tomime season, hue a part in Brandon Thomas's new play in three acts; " No. 22a Curzon-street, Mayfair," at the Garrick Theatre, London.


BTW, the ref to ' formerly of Camberwell' related to Camberwell MELBOURNE- not London :-))
More tomorrow if I get a chance
