Sarah Hannah Shepherd
« on: Monday 01 September 14 22:53 BST (UK) »
Researching Sarah Hannah Shepherd b. 14 June 1878 in Westmorland.  From what I can see on familysearch.org, she married Matthew Soulby on 1 Aug 1898.  I have found an entry for a divorce the same year and wonder how I would go about obtaining a divorce document.  From this point (after 1898) I cannot find a trace of her.  I'm told she had 15 children in total and lived in Barrow in Furness but I cannot come up with anything further. Any help would be appreciated.

 :) Where did the " She had 15 children in total" come from?

Hello,

There is information here about divorce although you already have the details.

According to a published tree Sarah Hannah Shepherd married Porter Jones in 1900. There is a marriage in Wellingborough, Northants for Sarah Hannah Shepherd and Porter Jones.
You may be able to follow this up.

I hope this helps.

Regards
Heywood

If she didn't marry until August, surely she wouldn't have been able to get divorced the same year?

A relative was told that she had 15 children but I have no way of confirming this.  I will follow up with Porter Jones as husband, thank you for your replies.

Familysearch indicates marriage to Matthew Soulby on 1 Aug. 1898.  Findmypast shows divorce for Sarah Hannah Shepherd and Matthew Soulby same year and then it seems he went into Military Service.  Would a marriage annulment be indicated as a divorce?  I do not have a membership for find my past so I did not look further.

Are you sure about that divorce? FindMyPast calls the record Marriages and Divorces but it only shows the marriage you quoted. I really dont think they could have married and divorced that quickly in those days. Divorce wasn't that common.

Thanks groom. It seemed odd but I thought a divorce had been found. I was imagining some sort of annulment.
