Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Margaret Scudamore
Over half a century later, an erroneous report that she was the daughter of Fortunatus in her Times obituary of 8 October 1958 was frequently repeated in other articles, even as late as 2003 in The Daily Telegraph until new Scudamore family research a few years after.
As Margaret she later married Captain James P. "Andy" Anderson, a tea planter formerly employed by the Ceylon and Eastern Agency, in London in 1922 and bore him a daughter, Peg.

Her grandchildren Corin Redgrave, Lynn Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave and great-grandchildren Jemma Redgrave, Joely Richardson, Natasha Richardson and Carlo Nero have successfully followed the family tradition into acting.
While appearing in repertory at the Grand Theatre, Brighton, she met the divorced actor Roy Redgrave who had just returned from an initial period in Australia. Still called Daisy, she married Redgrave at Glasgow Register Office in 1907 while they were touring in the north, and on 20 March 1908 she bore him a son, Michael Redgrave, who went on to be knighted during a distinguished cinema and theatre career.
More DetailsHide DetailsSix months after Michael's birth, Redgrave left Daisy (Margaret) and returned to Australia again, this time permanently. After the dissolution of her marriage to Redgrave - about four years after Michael's birth - she adopted the stage name of Margaret Scudamore and continued acting in character roles.
