Arthur William Kellaway (21 November 1881 – 27 August 1949), known as Arthur Chesney, was an English character actor who worked on stage and screen.[1][2]


He was born 21 November 1881 in Hampstead, London, the son of John and Catherine Kellaway (née Oliver).[3][4][5] He was the brother of the actor Edmund Gwenn and the cousin of the actor Cecil Kellaway. He married actress Estelle Winwood in 1907[6] but their marriage was dissolved and she remarried in 1928.[7] He later married Kitty Ridge, and they had daughter Ann Dummett in 1930. Ann went on to become a racial justice activist.

Chesney made his first stage appearance in 1903, in a play at County Theatre in Bedford. For many years he took part in many plays in London and New York. He died in a hospital on 27 August 1949 following a massive stroke in Hampstead, aged 67.[7]
