Mrs Brown-Potter (1859 – 1936), born Mary Cora Urquhart, was one of the first American society women to take to the stage.

She married James Brown-Potter in 1877 and they had a daughter, Anne in 1879.

They visited Englandmarker in 1886 where they met the Prince of Wales and were subsequently invited to spend the weekend with him. James returned to the United Statesmarker alone following the visit as Mary remained in Englandmarker to pursue a career on stage. She made her stage debut at the Theatre Royalmarker in Brightonmarker in 1877. Later that year she started a successful partnership with Harold Kyrle Bellew.

She and Harold toured the world and starred together for the next ten years.

Despite the fact her husband divorced her in 1903 she continued to use her married name as her stage name. Her last appearance on the Londonmarker stage was in 1912. She made a further stage appearance in 1919 for a benefit production in Guernseymarker.

In addition to her stage career she helped to raise money for war charities during The Boer War.
