At BOW-STREET, Samuel Dunstall, assistant to Mr. E. Hoadley, 1, York-place, Brighton, grocer, was charged with stealing 11 blank forms, and forging and uttering five post-office orders for 10l. each. Mr Peacock, the Post-office solicitor, prosecuted. It was proved that the prisoner, who had been many years in the same service, assisted his employer in the management of a branch receiving-house. He absconded from his situation on the 26th, and the next day it was discovered that 11 forms had been torn from the middle of the post-office order book. It transpired afterwards that four of them had been filled up for sums of 10l each, payable to Albert Brown, at other branch offices at Brighton, and the next morning the prisoner presented them, and actually received the 40l before the fraud was discovered. The prisoner went to York and obtained another 10l there; but on presenting a sixth order the postmaster became suspicious, stated that the advice had been improperly made out, and requested the prisoner to call again the next day. A telegram had been sent to the London office, and thence to Brighton, and another telegram informed the officials that the prisoner was on his way back to London. Accordingly, Smee, the Post-office constable, communicated with the railway officials at Hitchin, and waited the arrival of the train at King's Cross, where the prisoner, on stepping out of one of the carriages, was taken into custody. On the charge being mentioned, he said, "Yes, I expected as much," and at once confessed his guilt. One of the blank forms had been found in his bag, and, on being asked what he had done with the others, he replied, "Oh, you may as well have the lot," and taking off one of his boots, produced the remaining five orders from the inside. Mr Vaughan committed him for trial.

Note on Marriage

I don't believe they would have been allowed to marry at that time.

 

If this is so, that would cast quite a shadow on the apparent respectability of Edward Hoadly.

 

Could this be why the marriage took place in distant (from Brighton) Norwich?

 

Indeed, the Act herewith states that such a marriage would not have been legal until 1907.

 

A transcript of the Deceased Wife’s Sister’s Marriage Act, 1907.

 

 

An Act to amend the Law relating to Marriage with a Deceased Wife’s Sister. [28th August 1907.]

 

BE it enacted by the King’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows :

 

1. No marriage heretofore or hereafter contracted between a man and his deceased wife’s sister, within the realm Or without, shall be deemed to have been or shall be void or voidable, as a civil contract, by reason only of such affinity: Provided always that no clergyman in holy orders of the Church of England shall be liable to any suit, penalty, or censure, whether civil or ecclesiastical, for anything done or omitted to be done by him in the performance of the duties of his office to which suit, penalty, or censure he would not have been liable if this Act had not been passed.

Provided also that when any minister of any church or chapel of the Church of England shall refuse to perform such marriage service between any persons who, but for such refusal, would be entitled to have the same service performed in such church or chapel, such minister may permit any other clergyman in holy orders in the Church of England, entitled to officiate within the diocese in which such church or chapel is situate, to perform such marriage service in such church or chapel.

Provided also that in case, before the passing of this Act, any such marriage shall have been annulled, or either party thereto (after the marriage and during the life of the other) shall have lawfully married another, it shall be deemed to have become and to be void upon and after the day upon which it was so annulled, or upon which either party thereto lawfully married another as aforesaid.

 

2. No right, title, estate or interest, whether in possession or expectancy, and whether vested or contingent at the time of the passing of this Act, existing in, to, or in respect of, any dignity, title of honour, or property, and no act or thing lawfully done or omitted before the passing of this Act shall be prejudicially affected nor shall any will be deemed to have been revoked by reason of any marriage heretofore contracted as aforesaid being made valid by this Act. And no claim by the Crown for duties leviable on or with reference to death, and before the passing of this Act due and payable, and no payment, commutation, composition, discharge, or settlement of account in respect of any duties leviable on or with reference to death before the passing of this Act duly made or given, shall be prejudicially affected by anything herein contained.

Nothing in this Act shall affect the devolution or distribution of the real or personal estate of any intestate, not being a party to the marriage, who at the time of the passing of this Act shall be, and shall until his death continue to be, a lunatic, so found by inquisition.

 

3.-(1) Nothing in this Act shall remove wives’ sisters from the class of persons adultery with whom constitutes a right, on the part of wives, to sue for divorce under the Matrimonial Causes Act, 1857.

(2) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act or the Matrimonial Causes Act, 1857, it shall not be lawful for a man to marry the sister of his divorced wife, or of his wife by whom he has been divorced, during the lifetime of such wife.

 

4. Nothing in this Act shall relieve a clergyman in holy orders of the Church of England from any ecclesiastical censure, to which he would have been liable if this Act had not been passed, by reason of his having contracted or hereafter contracting a marriage with his deceased wife’s sister.

 

5. In this Act the word "sister" shall include a sister of the half-blood.

 

6. This Act may be cited as the Deceased Wife's Sister's Marriage Act, 1907.

Note on Husband: Edward HOADLY (3)

"The Brighton Herald" Saturday May 1st 1897:

 

"DEATH OF MR. EDWARD HOADLY. - It is with great regret that we record the death of a much-respected and esteemed townsman, in the person of Mr. Edward Hoadly, who passed away early yesterday morning, at his residence, 15 St. George's Place, after a protracted illness. Mr. Hoadly was a native of Leamington. He came to Brighton some 40 years ago, and was associated with the grocery business at that period carried on at the bottom of Trafalgar Street by the late Mr. Pannett, whom he afterwards succeeded, and in which he continued up to the time of his retirement, some 15 years since. The deceased gentleman had served on the Board of Guardians from the year 1885, and for the last two years had been Vice Chairman of the Board, every member of which entertained for him a high regard. Mr. Hoadly also officiated as Overseer in 1891-2, and was recently on the Burial Board. He was a very old member of the congregation of St. Peter's, and last year acted as Churchwarden, retiring from failing health. Mr. Hoadly, who was in his 65th year, was twice married, and leaves a widow to mourn his loss. His only child, a son by his first wife, died in 1880, from an accident, to his inexpressible grief. The funeral will take place next Tuesday at the Extra Mural Cemetery; the first portion of the Service being held at the Parish Church at noon. The arrangements are in the hands of Messrs. Attree and Kent."

We announce with deep regret that the late Vice-Chairman of the Brighton Board of Guardians, Mr Hoadly, passed away at his residence on Friday morning, at 15, St George's Place, Brighton. He had, as is generally known, been in failing health for some time, afflicted with a heart trouble, but there were solid hopes that with the return of the spring and summer he would be restored to active health again. At the first meeting of the newly appointed Board of Guardians, held at Easter, there was some question as to the propriety of appointing Mr Rose vice-chairman when there was the possibility that sometime, if not actually at once, the popular occupant of that seat for so long a period, Mr Hoadly, would be able to return to it. It was intimated in reply, however, that Mr Hoadly would not regard the appointment in the light of a slight, and Mr Rose then, in taking the chair, after his unanimous appointment, intimated that he should be ready to give place, on his return, to Mr Hoadly. He would, he said, much rather support him than supplant him. Very probably no one present at the meeting thought Mr Hoadly's end was so closely upon him. At the last meeting of the old Board, the Vicar, the Rev. Prebendary Hannah, move "That this Board desires to record its great regret at the continued illness of its esteemed Vice-chairman, Mr Edward Hoadly, and expresses the hope that he may soon be restored to health and able to resume his duties as a Guardian." The motion was unanimously carried. Mr Hoadly seems to have been considered almost convalescent, when, on Sunday, a relapse took place, and he was again prostrated. It soon became evident that he was not going to rally from this attack, and, becoming gradually weaker, he died peacefully a few minutes after the stroke of midnight on Thursday. The deceased gentleman, who was 64 years of age, first became a member of the Brighton Board of Guardians in 1885. He was also a Churchwarden of St Peter's, and took great interest in the affairs of the parish. He signed the notices convening the last Easter Vestry meetings.

 

THE FUNERAL

 

The mortal remains of Mr Edward Hoadly, of 15, St George's place, were interred yesterday in the Extra-Mural Cemetery. The deceased, who died on April 30th, was churchwarden of Brighton from April 1896 to April 1897. The first part of the burial service was held in the parish church by the Vicar, who was assisted by the Rev. Canon Deedes, the Rev. Fairfax Scott, the Rev. D. L. Secretan, the Rev. E. H. Nash, and the Rev. F. L. P. Maurice. The chief mourners were Mrs Hoadly (widow), Mrs Leach (sister-in-law), and Mr S. Hoadly, Mr A. Hoadly, Mr Harry Gibbs, and Mr W. Leach. Among other persons present, either at the church or at the grave were Mr J. J. Holder, Mr D. Friend, Mr. J. R. Gwatkin, Mr W. Bennett (chairman of the Board of Guardians), Mr Mellor, the Rev. Seymer Terry, Mr Lethbridge, Mr W. W. Welling, Mr G. J. Calton, Mr J. O. Thomas, Mr S. Anscome, Mr A. Habens, Mr E. Booth, Mr Bevis, Dr Fox Goode, Mr J. Horton Stephens, Mr A. Dann, Mr Spooner, Mr A. Morris (clerk to the Board of Guardians), Mr Cripps, the Rev. Heathcote Smith, Dr E. Hussey, Mr T. Dewe, Mr E. T. Pearce, Mr T. Berry, Mr G. J. Galliers, Mr Hobbs, Mr Hilton, Mr J. J. Jones, and Mr Burden (Master of the Workhouse).

The Vicar, the clergy, and the choir met the coffin at the entrance to the church, and twenty four boys from the Warren Farm Schools, in which the deceased took so deep an interest, formed the rear of the procession. The coffin, which was covered with flowers, was laid on a bier in front of the chancel. The coffin was of polished oak, and bore on the breastplate the inscription "Edward Hoadly. Died 30th April 1897, Aged 64 years". The 90th Psalm having then been sung, the hymn "Lead kindly light" was given, after which the Rev. E. H. Nash read a portion of Scripture. The hymn "Peace Perfect peace" followed, and, after the collects, the hymn "Now the labourer's task is o'er" was sung. At the graveside the Rev. Vicar took the remaining portion of the service, assisted by the Rev. Fairfax Scott. The wreaths and crosses bore the following inscriptions: -

"In loving remembrance from Harry, Marian and children, Berkhampstead"; "In loving memory from Alfred"; "In loving memory from mother and all the girls"; "To our dear friend from the children of the Warren Farm schools"; "In loving memory from Sam and Annie"; "With deepest sympathy from Mr W. Bennett and family"; "With affectionate sympathy from Mrs and Miss Edwards"; "With sincere regret and sympathy from Madame Verly"; "With deepest love and sympathy from E. And N.P."; "With deepest sympathy from the members and officials of the Brighton Burial Board"; "Remembering affectionately all kindness: Alice"; "In loving remembrance, Mr and Mrs G. H. Graham"; "In token of affectionate regard from the officers of the Warren Farm School"; "With sincere sympathy from his former colleagues and members of the Brighton Board of Guardians"; "With sincere sympathy from Mr. and Mrs George F. Dover"; and "With deepest sympathy from Mr and Mrs James Hamblin"; and "In loving memory, from Emily and Harry." "25

"DEATH OF MR. EDWARD HOADLY. - It is with great regret tht we record the death of a much-respected and esteemed townsman, in the person of Mr. Edward Hoadly, who passed away early yesterday morning, at his residence, 15 St. George's Place, after a protracted illness. Mr. Hoadly was a native of Leamington. He came to Brighton some 40 years ago, and was associated with the grocery business at that period carried on at the bottom of Trafalgar Street by the late Mr. Pannett, whom he afterwards succeeded, and in which he continued up to the time of his retirement, some 15 years since. The deceased gentleman had served on the Board of Guardians from the year 1885, and for the last two years had been Vice Chairman of the Board, every member of which entertained for him a high regard. Mr. Hoadly also officiated as Overseer in 1891-2, and was recently on the Burial Board. He was a very old member of the congregation of St. Peter's, and last year acted as Churchwarden, retiring from failing health. Mr. Hoadly, who was in his 65th year, was twice married, and leaves a widow to mourn his loss. His only child, a son by his first wife, died in 1880, from an accident, to his inexpressable grief. The funeral will take place next Tuesday at the Extra Mural Cemetery; the first portion of the Service being held at the Parish Church at noon. The arrangements are in the hands of Messrs. Attree and Kent."

THE BRIGHTON AND HOVE GUARDIAN
WEDNESDAY MAY 5TH 1897:

"DEATH OF THE LATE VICE-CHAIRMAN of the GUARDIANS

We announce with deep regret that the late Vice-Chairman of the Brighton Board of Guardians, Mr Hoadly, passed away at his residence on Friday morning, at 15, St George's Place, Brighton. He had, as is generally known, been in failing health for some time, afflicted with a heart trouble, but there were solid hopes that with the return of the spring and summer he would be restored to active health again. At the first meeting of the newly appointed Board of Guardians, held at Easter, there was some question as to the propriety of appointing Mr Rose vice-chairman when there was the possibility that sometime, if not actually at once, the popular occupant of that seat for so long a period, Mr Hoadly, would be able to return to it. It was intimated in reply, however, that Mr Hoadly would not regard the appointment in the light of a slight, and Mr Rose then, in taking the chair, after his unanimous appointment, intimated that he should be ready to give place, on his return, to Mr Hoadly. He would, he said, much rather support him than supplant him. Very probably no one present at the meeting thought Mr Hoadly's end was so closely upon him. At the last meeting of the old Board, the Vicar, the Rev. Prebendary Hannah, move "That this Board desires to record its great regret at the continued illness of its esteemed Vice-chairman, Mr Edward Hoadly, and expresses the hope that he may soon be restored to health and able to resume his duties as a Guardian." The motion was unanimously carried. Mr Hoadly seems to have been considered almost convalescent, when, on Sunday, a relapse took place, and he was again prostrated. It soon became evident that he was not going to rally from this attack, and, becoming gradually weaker, he died peacefully a few minutes after the stroke of midnight on Thursday. The deceased gentleman, who was 64 years of age, first became a member of the Brighton Board of Guardians in 1885. He was also a Churchwarden of St Peter's, and took great interest in the affairs of the parish. He signed the notices convening the last Easter Vestry meetings.

THE FUNERAL

The mortal remains of Mr Edward Hoadly, of 15, St George's place, were interred yesterday in the Extra-Mural Cemetery. The deceased, who died on April 30th, was churchwarden of Brighton from April 1896 to April 1897. The first part of the burial service was held in the parish church by the Vicar, who was assisted by the Rev. Canon Deedes, the Rev. Fairfax Scott, the Rev. D. L. Secretan, the Rev. E. H. Nash, and the Rev. F. L. P. Maurice. The chief mourners were Mrs Hoadly (widow), Mrs Leach (sister-in-law), and Mr S. Hoadly, Mr A. Hoadly, Mr Harry Gibbs, and Mr W. Leach. Among other persons present, either at the church or at the grave were Mr J. J. Holder, Mr D. Friend, Mr. J. R. Gwatkin, Mr W. Bennett (chairman of the Board of Guardians), Mr Mellor, the Rev. Seymer Terry, Mr Lethbridge, Mr W. W. Welling, Mr G. J. Calton, Mr J. O. Thomas, Mr S. Anscome, Mr A. Habens, Mr E. Booth, Mr Bevis, Dr Fox Goode, Mr J. Horton Stephens, Mr A. Dann, Mr Spooner, Mr A. Morris (clerk to the Board of Guardians), Mr Cripps, the Rev. Heathcote Smith, Dr E. Hussey, Mr T. Dewe, Mr E. T. Pearce, Mr T. Berry, Mr G. J. Galliers, Mr Hobbs, Mr Hilton, Mr J. J. Jones, and Mr Burden (Master of the Workhouse).
The Vicar, the clergy, and the choir met the coffin at the entrance to the church, and twenty four boys from the Warren Farm Schools, in which the deceased took so deep an interest, formed the rear of the procession. The coffin, which was covered with flowers, was laid on a bier in front of the chancel. The coffin was of polished oak, and bore on the breastplate the inscription "Edward Hoadly. Died 30th April 1897, Aged 64 years". The 90th Psalm having then been sung, the hymn "Lead kindly light" was given, after which the Rev. E. H. Nash read a portion of Scripture. The hymn "Peace Perfect peace" followed, and, after the collects, the hymn "Now the labourer's task is o'er" was sung. At the graveside the Rev. Vicar took the remaining portion of the service, assisted by the Rev. Fairfax Scott. The wreaths and crosses bore the following inscriptions: -
"In loving remembrance from Harry, Marian and children, Berkhampstead"; "In loving memory from Alfred"; "In loving memory from mother and all the girls"; "To our dear friend from the children of the Warren Farm schools"; "In loving memory from Sam and Annie"; "With deepest sympathy from Mr W. Bennett and family"; "With affectionate sympathy from Mrs and Miss Edwards"; "With sincere regret and sympathy from Madame Verly"; "With deepest love and sympathy from E. And N.P."; "With deepest sympathy from the members and officials of the Brighton Burial Board"; "Remembering affectionately all kindness: Alice"; "In loving remembrance, Mr and Mrs G. H. Graham"; "In token of affectionate regard from the officers of the Warren Farm School"; "With sincere sympathy from his former colleagues and members of the Brighton Board of Guardians"; "With sincere sympathy from Mr. and Mrs George F. Dover"; and "With deepest sympathy from Mr and Mrs James Hamblin"; and "In loving memory, from Emily and Harry." "
