Edgar Norfolk

Edgar Norfolk (5 November 1893 – 1980) was a British actor.[1]

Norfolk was born Edgar Greenwood.[2] He was the first husband of the actress Helen Saintsbury (a daughter of the actor H.A. Saintsbury); her second husband, Captain Buckley Rutherford, a son of Sir Ernest Rutherford (a wine importer, not the physicist Ernest Rutherford, although they were both born in 1871 and are sometimes confused[3]).[4] Four months after Saintsbury's wedding to Rutherford, he shot himself[5] and, distraught, less than a month later, Saintsbury also shot herself.[6]
