NOTE: The roles listed for any given actor do not necessarily coincide with roles that actor played while associated with this company. The listed roles reflect the complete extant corpus of that actor's career. Neither does the list necessarily suggest a chronology of performance. Though the listings are accurate, the scholar is nevertheless cautioned to research further.
Henry Carey, Lord Hunsdon, sponsored a company between 1564 and 1566. It is not until 1576 that they appear again. They played in York 8 September 1580 and appeared in court 27 December 1582. Sussex, Lord Chamberlain, died in 1583. The title Lord Chamberlain passed first to Charles Howard (Lord Effingham and later Lord Admiral) before it passed to his father-in-law Henry Carey in July 1585. In this role, Carey supported the Queen's Men as the only court playing company until 1594 when the Lord Chamberlain's Men came into being.
