Hello Cath,
That is amazing.how did you come up with that?
I've been searching all sort of records,but never gave a thought to change of name.
Do you think they changed name by deed poll or just made it up.(strange name to use )

Do any records exist that record a change of name or do you think they just made it up.
What paper reported the divorce.
It shows I have a lot to learn about genealogy.
Very many thanks again for your input.
Dave

You can call yourself anything you like as long as it isn't used for fraud, so I expect that they just called themselves that to hide from her husband and have a new start. It might have been a name from Alfred's family, perhaps his mother's maiden name.

I doubt if they ever married.

Just fiddling around with names. places of birth, dates and addresses ,not very exact :D
I think Groom is right about the surname. The divorce was in the Hampshire Advertiser 24th May 1899.
If you have Ancestry then the bapstisms and a marriage or two of the children are in the London Baptism, Marriages.
