Lily Langtry

Langtry

Born Emilie Charlotte Le Breton, Lily was a highly successful British actress born on the Island of Jersey. A renowned beauty, her nickname was taken from the Jersey lily flower, a symbol of Jersey. In the town of Langtry, Texas, which was not named after her, Judge Roy Bean, as an ardent admirer, named the saloon where he held court “The Jersey Lily”.
