    Charge of Bigamy
    Charge of Bigamy
    Sunderland Daily Echo and Shipping Gazette – Wednesday 12 April 1899

    An interesting defence against a charge of bigamy, in that the charge was that she had married husband 4 whilst husband 3 was still alive, but as husband 1 was alive when she married husband 3 that marriage was not legal, therefore she had not committed bigamy with marriage to husband 4 as husband 1 had died prior to that marriage
