NEILSON, Lillian Adelaide, English actress, born near Saragossa, Spain, 3 March, 1850; died in Paris, 15 August, 1880. She was born of English parents, and spent the early part of her life in London. In 1865 she made her debut at the theatre in Margate as Julia in "The Hunchback," and in July of the same year appeared as Juliet at the Royalty theatre, London. Thereafter she acted in the larger houses of London and other cities with success, and became an attractive performer. Her first visit to this country was in November, 1872, when she played Juliet at Booth's theatre, New York city, and afterward made the usual dramatic tour through the country with pecuniary profit. She returned to the United States in 1875, 1877, and 1879, each time with success. In 1872 Miss Neilson married in England a Mr. Low, from whom she afterward was divorced. Without much power or originality, Miss Neilson was a fine representative of the youthful heroines of Shakespeare.
