Marie Grivot (1843-1890), French actress(photo: unknown, probably Paris, 1874)

‘The death is announced, in her forty-seventh year, of Madame Lawrence [sic] Grivot, a most useful, conscientious artist, who, during her honourable career on the Paris stage, played many parts, alternating between comedy-drama and operetta at several of the theatres. Her last appearance was at the Gymnase in old women’s rôles. The deceased was the wife of the amusing actor now at the Opéra-Comique, whom she married in 1866, when they were comrades at the Vaudeville. Madame Grivot, whose maiden name was Marie Laurent, which she changed to Laurence [sic], was highly esteemed in the profession and in private life. She died of cancer in the stomach after a long and painful illness.’ (The Era, London, Saturday, 14 June 1890, p. 8a)
