Administrative historyThis branch of the Chute family was well known in Bristol and Bath for theatre management and theatre arts. James Henry Chute married the daughter of William Macready. Based on the writings of his contemporaries, James seems to started out in the theatre profession at quite a young age, beginning his career as a "light comedian", marrying into the Macready family and moving from there into assembly room and theater management, the profession for which he was best remembered. He married Mazzarina Emily Macready and they had at least two sons named George and James. He died in 1878

Archivist's noteThis collection was catalogued in 2016, but the items had been arranged and numbered with references in red ink long before this. No listing of contents could be found however, and the numbers have been retained. Items 22, 23 and 24 were not found in the bundle at the time of cataloguing - it is not known what these items may have been.
