Divorce proceedings
« on: Wednesday 03 July 19 11:26 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I wonder if anyone can find divorce proceedings online somewhere for Clara Ann Flavell Williams and Frank W Brookman. It would be late 1895ís and quite scandalous.
I really need the transcription of the proceedings.
Thank you

Salacious court cases would probably be in newspaper reports. Unlikely court records themselves would be kept.

I do not have an ancestry subscription and am asking for this for a relative. I was hoping maybe someone could locate this for us. If it requires payment I will have to go back to the person who requires it.
I do have FindMyPast so will look at newspapers, good idea.

That one is definitely on Ancestry - they have published the whole file.
