Born: Established: 22 Apr 1860 Petersham, Marrickville - Camperdown area, Sydney Southern Suburbs, Sydney, New South Wales, ; Died: Ceased: 28 Mar 1921 London,
One of Chambers's two sisters, Agnes, became a well-known actress, dramataist, pianist and music director. Among her known works are : The Love Affairs of Mr Boyd (ca. 1909), Bad Mrs Bennett (with J. Clarence, ca. 1910).
A brother, Harry K. Chambers, who for many years was a journalist with the Sydney Morning Herald and several other Australian newspapers, established himself as a journalist in New York before also attempting a career as a dramatist. Two of his plays, written under the name Kellet Chambers, are : Abigail, staged at the Savoy Theatre, New York (ca. 1904/1905), and A Case of Frenzied Finance (ca. 1905). Chambers was married to Kate Carew, well-known in America for her illustrations and caricatures (Sydney Morning Herald 27 May 1905, p14).
In Australia on the Popular Stage Margaret Williamson refers to Chambers as the author of eight plays (p277). While the number of actual published works appears to be in that vicinity, his total output of staged works was clearly much higher.
