The Maddern Family Band

Richard Maddern emigrated from England with his family in 1842. Settling in Buffalo, New York, he taught his children to play brass instruments, and formed a band with the five girls and two boys. Although they only toured for a couple of years, they built themselves a strong reputation in the theatres, and laid the foundations for musical and theatrical careers for them all in the future.

The story of their lives in England and America can be found in my paper, linked here:
