|The actress sister of Louise Leclercq that I have listed on the previous page of this section. The family resemblance can clearly be seen.
Carlotta was connected with the Princess’s Theatre in Kean’s time, and married the actor John Nelson. A third sister, Rose, also followed a theatrical career, as did their three brothers, Arthur, Charles and Pierre. The six were all children of Charles Leclercq, who was, according to one source, ‘for many years favourably known in dramatic circles in Manchester and London as a skilful ballet-master, pantomimist, and stage-manager, and also, actor in a certain range of parts.’ He died on 28 December 1861.
