Martin Harvery (1863 - 1944), later Sir John Martin-Harvey (knighted 1921) was an extremely popular English stage actor. He made his debut in 1881. He was a member of the companies of Sir Henry Irving (1882), then Johnston Forbes-Robertson (1897), before starting his own. He was married to actress Miss N. de Silva (1869 - 1949). He had enormous success with The Only Way (adapted from Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities) and The Breed of the Treshams. With his company, he often toured the provinces to enthusiastic and adoring audiences.
