In Reply to: Sarah Siddons or Royal connection???? by Katrina of 107

Sarah Siddon's son George John Siddons was the godson of King George IV. George Siddons joined the East India Company in 1802 as a "writer" and had a long career as an administrator in Bengal. There are a few references in biographies of Sarah Siddons to a royal connection but the only facts are that she was a favourite of the Prince Regent as demonstrated by his becoming George Siddons' godfather and sponsoring his entry into the Indian Civil Service.
