5. Kemble Family

The Kemble family was very active in English theatre for three generations. Actor and manager Roger Kemble (1721-1802) married Sarah Ward and the couple had twelve children. Sarah Siddons (1755-1831), John Philip Kemble (1757-1823), and Charles Kemble (1775-1854) became distinguished actors of the English stage.
