Elizabeth Kemble (née Satchell; 1763 – 20 January 1841) was an English actress.
She was born in London, and she was a talented performer when she married Stephen Kemble, of the Kemble family, in 1783. They acted together for several years both in London and in the provincial circuits.
The editor of Blackwood's Magazine reported:
"In all the parts she played she was impassioned; and all good judges who remember her will agree with us in thinking that she was an actress, not only of talent but of genius."
James Boaden was enthusiastic in her praise. In 1792, the Thespian Magazine reported that "[Satchell] summons the resistless tear of compassion into the eyes of the most rugged and insensible – and while sympathy and feeling shall hold a place in the human heart, her representation of Yarrico [sic] will be attended with delight, and remembered with the most unbounded admiration.”
