1660 – A woman appears on an English public stage for the first time

Anne Marshall (fl. 1661 – 1682), also Mrs. Anne Quin, was a leading English actress of the Restoration era.

She had been nominated as possibly the “first English actress,” the Desdemona in the performance of Othello on 8th December, 1660.

Marshall retired from the stage in 1668, but she resumed her career nine years later, this time with a rival company under Thomas Betterton.

Extra Note: Anne Marshall married an actor named Peter Quin, or Gwyn, sometime after June 1665. Peter Quin was wanted by the police for acting without a warrant.
