Charles Macklin: An Actor's Life

By William W. Appleton | Go to book overview

NOTES

Chapter I: Early Years
1. The Morning Herald, July 12, 1797; The Morning Chronicle, July 17, 1797; The Whitehall Evening Post, July 11-13, 1797; The True Briton, July 13, 1797.
2. James T. Kirkman, Memoirs of the Life of Charles Macklin ( London, 1799), I, 3-4. In a letter to Mrs. Macklin dated June 11 [ 1785], Harvard Theatre Collection extra-illustrated Hawkins Kean, Macklin refers to him merely as "my friend Kirkman."
3. Detailed reviews of Kirkman's biography appeared in "The European Magazine", 35: 319-323 ( May 1799) and "The Monthly Review", N.S. 30: 305-319, 426-438 (November-December 1799). The account of Macklin's early years was sharply criticized. The second volume of his biography proved more satisfactory to the reviewers. Cooke's account was generally conceded to be more reliable. Neither, however, is as accurate as Congreve's short life.
4. Francis Congreve, Authentic Memoirs of the late Charles Macklin ( London, 1798), p. 10.
5. Observation by Macklin quoted in a letter by William Ballantyne, dated March 28, 1806, inserted in extra-illustrated Cooke Macklin in the Folger Library.
6. William Cooke, Memoirs of Charles Macklin ( London, 1804), p. 6. When Macklin testified before the Committee on the Westminster Election, April 30, 1789 (unidentified clipping in extraillustrated Cooke Macklin in the Folger Library), he declared: "I am now in the 89th year of my age. I was born two months before the current century." See also Notes and Queries, 3rd Ser., vol. II: 143- 144 ( August 23, 1862); 5th Ser., vol. II: 245-246 ( September 26, 1874).
7. James Boswell, Private Papers . . . from Malahide Castle, ed. Frederick A. Pottle (Mount Vernon, New York, 1932), XIV, 236-237.
8. Edward Chichester. Parochial Survey of Ireland ( Dublin, 1816), II, 170; William J. Doherty, Inis-Owen and Tirconnell ( Dublin, 1895), p. 157; Harry P. Swan, Twixt Foyle and Swilly ( Dublin, 1949), p. 177, cites Gortinaren as his birthplace without indicating his evidence for doing so.
