    Matilda Alice Powles was born 13 May 1864 in Commandery Street, Worcester, Worcestershire, the second of thirteen children. Perhaps at her father's urging, she became a child actor. She made her stage debut at three and by seven was appearing regularly as 'The Great Little Tilley' making a very respectable £5 per week.
