Gabrielle Ray – Engagement – The Westminster Gazette – Thursday 11th January 1912

OUR LONDON LETTERS.

That popular Gaiety actress Miss Gabrielle Ray will acquire some aristocratic connexions when she marries Mr. Eric Loder. Thus one of her futures husband’s uncles is Mr. Gerald Loder, who sat as M.P. for Brighton from 1839 to 1905, holding during that period various minor offices and is married to a daughter of the late Duke of St. Albans. Another is Major Reginald Loder, whose wife (Margaret Ernestine Augusta) is a daughter of the third Earl of Listowel, and a third is Major Eustace Loder, who is well known both in Irish and English social circles.

Gabrielle Ray – Engagement – The Tatler – Wednesday 17th January 1912

More Stage and Stalls.

 An interesting engagement is that of Mr. Eric Loder, a nephew of Sir Edmund Loder, and Miss Gabrielle Ray, the well known actress of Gaiety and Daly’s fame. This bridegroom, too, like Lord Stafford and Miss Lohr’s future husband, Mr. Tony Prinsep, is some way off his quarter-century in years, but his bride-to-be confesses to twenty-seven years. Mr. Eric Loder is tall and fair and rich, and a most enthusiastic Brooklands motorist, while Miss Ray is small and fair and a delightful dancer whose charming personality is familiar to everyone. She is in fact the most bephotographed actress of the day.

Gabrielle Ray – Actor’s Orphanage Fund – The Westminster Gazette – Wednesday 29th June 1910

A MERRY PARTY.

ACTORS AND ACTRESSES IN REGENT’S PARK.

 

A great company of bright people was to be seen yesterday at the Botanic Gardens, when the annual “theatrical garden-party” was held in aid of the Actors’ Orphanage Fund. It was a very gay afternoon.

Many very well-known and very popular actors and actresses worked hard all the time in aid of the charity they desired to help. Miss Winifred Emery ran an ice-cream tent; Miss Lilian Braithwaite and Miss Ethel Irving dispensed strawberries and cream; Miss Lena Ashwell, Miss Eva Moore, and Miss Constance Collier conducted the “Lake Tea Chalet”; Miss Erie Greene, Miss Ruth Vincent, Miss Isabel Jay, and Miss Louie Pounds were among the ladies who sold picture postcards and other portraits; Miss Pauline Chase, Miss Gertie Millar, Miss Gabrielle Ray, Mr. Gerald du Maurier, and Mr. Henry Ainley looked after the fortunes of a shooting-gallery; Miss Marie Lohr sold roses.

Some particularly hard, work was accomplished, too, at “The National Memorial Theatre within the grounds,” where Mr. Cyril Maude played the villain in an entirely new and enchanting melodrama of real life, in four acts – a “timorous, terrifying tincture of tragedy” – entitled “The Pick of Oakham, or the Girl with the Bad Habit.” Mr. Maude was certainly supported by a company as strong as the melodrama, the members including Miss Maidie Hope, Miss Hilda Trevelyan, Mr. E. M. Robson, Mr. Kenneth Douglas, Mr. Lennox Pawle, Mr. Harry Nicholls, and Mr. Lionel Rignold. Lord George Grossmith, jun.’s, Imperial Circus was still more wildly funny. Mr. Edmund Payne led a strenuous life while it lasted under his “management.” And an immense amount of labour was cheerfully carried out by the celebrated “Water Rats,” who gave a continuous performance.

There were also hair-dressing and hat-trimming competitions, judged by Mrs. George Alexander, and an exhilarating cricket match between actors and actresses, captained respectively by Mr. Charles Hawtrey and Miss Vane Featherstone.
