Elizabeth Boutell, née Davenport (early 1650s?—1715), was a British actress. She joined the King's Company about 1670 and played many important roles in the 1670s, including Benzayda in John Dryden's The Conquest of Granada (December 1670 and January 1671), Melantha in Dryden's Marriage A-la-Mode (c. April 1672), Margery Pinchwife in William Wycherley's The Country Wife (12 January 1675), and probably Rosalinda in Nathaniel Lee's Sophonisba (3 April 1675). Her most famous role was the loving and trustful Queen Statira in Dryden's The Rival Queens (17 March 1677). She formed a notable acting partnership with Rebecca Marshall in a series of fashionable "women in conflict" plays, in which Boutell played the virtuous heroine to Marshall's darker antagonist.[1] Boutell specialized in breeches roles, such as Fidelia in Wycherley's The Plain Dealer (11 December 1676). No roles are recorded for her between March 1678 and April 1688. Her husband Barnaby Boutell had a lieutenant's commission from 1681, and the Biographical Dictionary of Actors speculates that she may have followed him to the Continent in the 1680s. Edmund Curll described Boutell in The History of the English Stage (1741), a work supposedly based on the notes of the famous actor Thomas Betterton, who was the King's Company's de facto manager in the 1670s: A very considerable Actress; she was low of Stature, had very agreeable Features, a good Complexion, but a Childish Look. Her Voice was weak, tho' very mellow; she generally acted the young, innocent Lady whom all the Heroes are mad in Love with; she was a Favourite of the Town. During her active and busy career in the 1670s, she was according to the Biographical Dictionary of Actors generally considered a "very talented, popular, beautiful, and promiscuous young woman". Her last recorded role was with Thomas Betterton's company at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1696. In 1697 she left for Holland with her husband, after which no more is known of her other than that she made a will in 1714, and that the will was proved the following year. Notes ^ Howe, pp. 152-3.
