1927 - Esther Louisa (Gardiner) Cunningham Divorce

A Wife's Desertion. ? In the Divorce Court yesterday the Chief Justice (Sir Robert McMillan), granted an application for a decree nisi, returnable in six months for dissolution of marriage. The petitioner, Edward Joseph Cunningham, said he was married to the respondent, Esther Louisa Cunningham in 1902 In 1905 he joined the Commonwealth light house service and was stationed at Point Moore and at Breaksea Island until 1916 when he enlisted. Up to that time his wife lived with him, but when he was repatriated, she declined to return to him, and, despite repeated requests, she had not changed her mind. She asked him, however, to take charge of the children, which, he had done. He knew of no reason why she should have taken the course she did. Corroborative evidence was given, by the petitioner's brother. Mr. H. Parker represented the petitioner and the case was undefended.
