Comments:

Born and trained in Kamigata, Ichiyama Dengor˘ ended his 10-year career in Edo. He was active from the middle of the 1730s to the middle of the 1740s. This actor, who was tachiyaku or jitsuaku, succeeded in reaching the prestigious j˘-j˘-kichi ranking.

[1] Not reported in Nojima Jusabur˘'s book "Kabuki Jinmei Jiten". Ichiyama Dengor˘ performed for the first time in ˘shibai, in ďsaka at the ďnishi no Shibai, in a troupe starring Ichiyama Sukegor˘ I. We do think that he was indeed a disciple of this actor.
