Julia Glover (c.1779 - 1850):
Julia Betterton was born in Newry, County Down. She began her stage career when she was six years old, as an infant prodigy, reputedly exploited by her father, who was also an actor. She played at York and Bath, and after her unhappy marriage in 1800 she appeared with Edmund Kean at Drury Lane. She is said to have been an accomplished and able actress, the first comic actress of her time. Her last performance, four days before her death, was as Mrs Malaprop in Sheridan's The Rivals.
