  • Notes 
    • As an actress of comedy (1782-1815) she is said to have been unrivalled for "perfect nature with arch simplicity". Besides her ten children by the Royal Duke, she had (previously) five daughters - viz. four by Sir Richard Ford, a police magistrate, and one by Richard Daly, manager of the Cork Theatre. She was never married; Mr. Jordon was a myth. Her portrait as "Mrs Jordan," was painted by Romney. The name "litte Jordon" was given her by Tate Wilkinson (a well known theatre manager), to whom, when complaining of Richard Daly's treatment of her, she had said : "I shed tears enough to overflow the Jordon" (Gerard's Some Fair Hibernians). For her earliest acting as "Miss Francis" see N. and Q., 9th Ser., vol ii, p. 221. 1
