George Anne Bellamy (1731? - 1788), actress. Initially her beauty and social reputation stood her in good stead. She was small in stature, fair, with blue eyes, and apparently very beautiful. During her early life she was thrown into intimacy with Fox and many characters of highest mark. Her later years were burdened with suffering and debt however. She describes herself on her reappearance in Dublin, when still little more than thirty, as ‘a little dirty creature bent nearly double, enfeebled by fatigue, her countenance tinged with jaundice, and in every respect the reverse of a person who could make the least pretension to beauty.'
