Theatrical families

I have been looking for any information on Charles J Verner born 1830 died 1869. He was an actor/comedian.He was my 3xgreatgrandfather. The surname
has been changed over the years. From Verner to Fortescue, which makes life
very difficult when trying to find decendants. He was said to have been born somewhere in Ireland. He married a Caroline ? and had at least 3 children. The eldest being my 2xgreatgrandfather who changed his name somewhere between 1881 and 1891 to Charles J Fortescue, who married a Florence Seaman. I have lots of information on CharlesJ Fortescue and his wife Florence, but cannot find anything on Charles J Verner.
If anyone could point me in the right direction for more information on this family I would be most grateful
