‘Nellie Lonnen, the latest recruit to the Gaiety Company, is a daughter of the late Mr. E.J. Lonnen. Although she is still well within her teens, she has already won some success on the variety stage – on which she appeared with her sister [Jessie] – and she played in The Cherry Girl [musical play, Vaudeville Theatre, London, 21 December 1903]. She is godchild of the late Nellie Farren.’
(The Sketch, London, Wednesday, 16 August 1905, p.171)
