Mr. and Mrs. William E. Burton

Mr. and Mrs. William E. Burton were an acting team. William Evans Burton (1802-60) was born in London and began professional acting in 1830, playing low comedy. In 1831 he made his London debut as Wormwood in "The Lottery Ticket," at the Pavilion Theatre. Burton's first New York appearance was at the National Theatre in 1839. He specialized in the roles of Aminidab Sleek and Toodles. Burton also managed several theaters in New York City. A Mrs. Hilson, an actress of whom little is known, was William Burton's second wife. They appear to be in costume for Shakespeare's "Merry Wives of Windsor."
