Newspaper Cuttings Mentioning Stableses in Barnsley

Extract from The Times
dated Monday May 3rd, 1880
(Page 6, Left Hand Column).

This article was very kindly supplied by Michael Chance.

Mr. Middleton appeared for the petitioner.
The parties in this case were married at Silkstone, near
Barnsley, in 1866, and they lived together until 1872, when,
in consequence of quarrels caused by the wife's extrava-
gance, they separated. The petitioner, who is a mechanic,
made his wife some small allowance until 1873, when she re-
fused to take it any longer. He then heard she was living
with the co-respondent, which she has continued to do down
to the present time. Owing to a want of means he had been
unable to institute this suit before the present time. The
evidence as to the existence of an improper intimacy be-
tween the respondent and co-respondent not being conclu-
sive, the case was adjourned for the production of further
evidence on this point.

Michael was searched the parish register for Silkstone to discover who the couple were and this is a transcript of their entry in the marriage register.
