Margery Maude (29 April 1889 – 7 August 1979) was an English actress of stage, screen and television.

Family[edit]

Margery Kathleen Maude was born in Wimbledon, London, the elder daughter of the actors Cyril and Winifred (née Emery) Maude.

Marriage[edit]

She married Joseph Warren Burden on 23 July 1917 in New York City; the couple had three children: Joseph, Jr. (1918–1944), Winifred and Pamela.[1]

Stage[edit]

Margery Maude appeared on Broadway between 1913 and 1965. She received the following commendation for her performance in a production of Rip van Winkle, opposite her father in the title role in 1911. Her mother also had a role in the play.

Miss Margery Maude played her part with peculiar sweetness. She is a charming little actress, dainty, earnest and unaffected. Miss Winifred Emery had only a small part, but a telling one. She gave a touching rendering of an old lady in whose soul the bitterness of time was powerless to destroy the sweetness, and many eyes were moist while she was on stage.[2]

Death[edit]

Margery Maude died on 7 August 1979, at her home near Cleveland, Ohio, aged 90.[3]
