Minnie Gertrude Ellis Jeffreys (12 May 1868 – 21 January 1943) was an English actress born in Colombo, in what is now Sri Lanka, the daughter of Captain Dodsworth Jeffreys. She was in more than 75 stage productions and 11 films. Her first performance was with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company in 1889.
