Joseph George Holman

HOLMAN, Joseph George, actor, born in England in 1764; died in Rockaway, L. I., 24 May, 1817. He was educated at Queen's college, Oxford, and intended for the church. During his college course he joined a Thespian society, and became so deeply interested in acting that he turned his attention to the stage. After preparatory study and practice in country play-houses, Holman, on 26 October, 1784, made his appearance at Covent Garden theatre, London, in the character of Romeo, followed by other personifications, with much success. He then spent several years as a player in Scotland and Ireland, part of the time as director of the Dublin theatre. In 1798 he married a daughter of Frederick Hamilton; but his wife died in 1810, and he returned to London in 1812 and appeared at the Haymarket theatre with his daughter. At the close of this engagement father and daughter came to this country, making their first appearance at the New York Park theatre in "The Provoked Husband." From there they made the usual tour to Boston, Albany, and Philadelphia. For a single season Holman leased the Philadelphia Walnut street theatre, and toward the close of his career unsuccessfully managed the Charleston, South Carolina, theatre. He returned to :New York city from the south impoverished and broken in health, and for most of the time thereafter continued un employed. Holman rose to much distinction in juvenile tragedy and high-comedy parts, in some of which he had no equal on the London stage. Some of his best renderings were Hamlet, Edgar in "King Lear," Benedict, Lord Townley, Mr. Oakley, and Duke Aranza. He had more ease and finish than intensity, was a studious performer, and a well-bred, scholarly man. Six or seven plays came from his pen that were acted on a few occasions, but never published.--Holman's second wife, born in England about 1798; died in New York city, 1 September, 1859, was a Miss Lattimer. Holman engaged her to come from England and join his troupe at the Charleston theatre. On the return of the company to New York city she was married to Holman, 22 May, 1817, two days before he died. Her second marriage was with Isaac S. Clason, and her third, in 1824, to Charles W. Sandford, a lawyer and general of militia. After this event she retired from the stage and concert-room for about two years. At her instigation, General Sandford, in 1826, became lessee of the new Lafayette theatre, when she resumed her former dramatic efforts. After the destruction of that play-house by fire, Mrs. Holman, retaining her professional name, performed occasionally in various cities, and in June, 1832, made her last appearance at the Park theatre in New York city as Maria in "Of Age To-morrow." On a single occasion, in 1838, she came forward for her husband's benefit, at the New York National theatre, as Susan in the play of " Perfection." Mrs. Holman was an attractive singing actress, and frequently appeared with success in concerts and oratorios. Her renderings of "The Soldier Tired of War's Alarms" and Bishop's "Echo Song" were greatly admired.
