Hi
I am not sure whether you have all you need on the Hartford/Alston inquiry, but here are a couple more items FYI which may support your idea of the paternity of John HARTFORD (b 1916)

Michael J ALSTON was Michael Jacob ALSTON at birth.
Parents Jacob ALSTON and Bridget FOGARTY.
Born at Brighton 1876

His father Jacob was naturalised in 1911  and the record is digitized on NAA website. 

You may have seen this item Michael was still at the gasworks at his death in 2nd Feb 1937.

You will remember he worked at the gasworks during the divorce case.

He was older than Mary if her age at death is correct.

Their late marriage in the same year as his death suggests an impediment of some sort.
Was one of them still married to another we wonder.

Anyhow, a bit of material for thought.
