Ellen Terry - Legacy

Legacy

After her death, the Ellen Terry Memorial Museum was founded in her memory at Smallhythe Place, an early 16th century house that she bought at the turn of the 20th century. The museum was taken over by the National Trust in 1939. Also following her death, Terry's correspondence with Shaw was published. Over three thousand letters survive.

Terry's daughter Edith Craig became a theatre director, producer, costume designer and early pioneer of the women's suffrage movement in England; her son, Edward Gordon Craig, became an actor, scenery and effects designer, illustrator and director and founded the Gordon Craig School for the Art of the Theatre in Florence, Italy, in 1913; and her grandnephew was the actor John Gielgud. The singer Helen Terry and illustrator Helen Craig are also her descendants.
