Charles Wyndham (1837-1919)

This may be the Charles Wyndham who was the Victorian era English actor/manager and trained physician. Wyndham first appeared in the U.S. at Mrs. John Wood's Olympic Theatre in New York in 1861, as a "walking gentleman," or an actor with an insignificant speaking role. He subsequently joined the Union army and went south as a surgeon. At the end of the Civil War, he returned to England. During Lester Wallack's tour of Europe he hired Wyndham for his New York theater. Wyndham made his debut there in 1869 as Charles Surface in "School for Scandal." Wyndham then performed as a light comedian at Wallack's. He eventually founded Wyndham's Theater in London.
