Charles Kean (1811-1868) was offered a cadetship in the East India Company's service, but turned it down to follow in his father's footsteps and become an actor. He toured the United States twice, the second time with his wife, the actress Ellen Tree. Henry Maull (1829-1914) was a British photographer who specialised in portraits of noted individuals; between 1856 and 1865 he held a partnership with George Henry Polyblank, forming Maull & Polyblank.
