EDDY, Edward, actor, born in Troy, New York, in 1821; died in Kingston, Jamaica, 19 Dec.. 1875. He made his first appearance in Albany, and then played in Baltimore, and in 1847'8 in Boston. He came to New York in 1851, and was successively manager of the Metropolitan theatre, Burton's Chainhers Street theatre, the Old Bowery, and the old Broadway theatre. The last performance in this building', on 12 April 1859, was for his benefit. Although he aspired to personate leading characters, Mr. Eddy did not succeed in impressing his audiences favorably. His best efforts were in melodrama, and in such Shakespearean parts as Laertes, Edgar, and Macduff.
His wife, Mary Mathews, born in England; died in New Orleans, La., in 1865, was also on the stage, but retired after her Marriage.
