I can't see one, and divorce wasn't that common then. I wonder if they just went their separate ways and Mary took William Godfrey's name without marrying him?

Yes I think you might be right about them going their own separate ways. George must have liked older women - his next partner is 6 years older.

Many thanks for your help  ;)
