Charles Spencer Chaplin was born on April 16, 1889, supposedly in East Street, Walworth, London, England. His parents were entertainers in the music hall tradition; his father, Charles Spencer Chaplin Sr, was a vocalist and an actor while his mother, Hannah Chaplin, was a singer and an actress who went by the stage name Lilly Harley. They separated before Charlie was three. He learned singing from his parents. The 1891 census shows that his mother lived with Charlie and his older half-brother Sydney on Barlow Street, Walworth.
Chaplin died in his sleep in Vevey, Switzerland, on December 25, 1977.
