Marriage and Family Details

Spouse Lena Ethel RUMSEY (1914-1974)
Marriage Q1 1945 (age 26) Islington
On the 17th June 1944, George William Brown was granted a divorce from Lena Ethel Brown on the ground of adultery. The co-respondant was Ronald Cook-Abbott who was recorded in the press report as serving in the Pioneer Corps and was serving overseas. It is entirely possible that this divorce was arranged amicably between the parties as it was sometimes the case that one of the married couple would "provide evidence" of adultery (even if adultery had not been committed) as this was one of the few grounds on which a court would grant a divorce.
