Re Margaret Agnes Daniel (born 1883 Pietermarizburg SA) nee Hyslop, married formerly to Walter Millar.

I have a marriage certificate for Margaret Agnes to Charles Ernest Daniel, 18.4.1913, giving her as the divorced wife of Walter Millar.

I cannot find any trace of a divorce in the normal records : however the register office seem to think that she would have had to prove divorce when she was married for the second time: St Pancras, were she was married have no details of the divorce. Does anyone know of the regulation regarding a second marriage after divorce and where proof/ details would be available from ? As before, the divorce may well have taken place outside of the UK.

Roger - some postings back in this thread you asked if Margaret's father's knighthood would make her an Hon. The answer is no, it wouldn't.

He would have needed to go up another rank (to a Lord) for her to gain the title The Hon X Y Z.

If a Lordship is an hereditary peerage then any male offspring would inherit the title of Lord after his death and his grandchildren would gain the title The Hon A B C and so on until such times as there was no male heir. If his title was not an hereditary peerage then his male offspring would not become Lord on his death and his grandchildren would not have any title.

It is extremely rare nowadays for anyone to be given an hereditary peerage. In fact the last two were created by Margaret Thatcher. She make George Thomas the former speaker of the House of Commons and William Whitelaw both hereditary peers - Lord Tonypandy and Lord Whitelaw respectively. Lord Tonypandy had no children and Lord Whitelaw had only daughters so both peerages died with them.
