Marriage Notes.

The marriage records indicate William Arthur LIDDIARD married the same woman twice. The bride's given names, status, and father's name change in both records. Here are the details for William's two marriages in 1922 and 1925.

William's first marriage 1922.

Groom: William Arthur LIDDIARD.
Age: 32 years.
Status: Single.
Father: George LIDDIARD.

Bride: Myrtle Rhoda HAMLYN nee HIRSCHFIELD.
Age: 22 years.
Status: Widow.
Father: John Daniel HIRSCHFIELD.

Date married: 26 July 1922.
Place: St Benedicts Church, Minlaton.

William's second marriage 1925.

Groom: William Arthur LIDDIARD.
Age: 35 years.
Status: Single.
Father: George LIDDIARD.

Bride: Martha Rosalia HAMLYN nee HIRSCHFIELD.
Age: 25 years.
Status: Divorced.
Father: Jacob Daniel HIRSCHFIELD.

Date married: 10 June 1925.
Place: Registry Office, Adelaide, South Australia.

When looking at the two marriages above it appears to me Myrtle Rhoda and Martha Rosalia are the same person. When Myrtle Rhoda married William in 1922 shs gave her status as widow. Here are the details for Myrtle's first marriage to Ernest HAMLYN:

Groom: Ernest Raymore HAMLYN.
Age: 22 years.
Status: Single.
Father: Alfred Ernest HAMLYN.

Bride: Myrtle Rosa HIRSCHFIELD.
Age: 21 years.
Status: Single.
Father: John Daniel HIRSCHFIELD.

Date married: 23 February 1922.
Place: Belmont Berri, South Australia.

Ernest HAMLYN was still alive and kicking when Myrtle Rosa, now going by the name of Myrtle Rhoda, married William LIDDIARD in 1922. Ernest HAMLYN remarried in 1927 age 28 years and his status was recorded as divorced. It appears to me Myrtle was still married to Ernest when she married William in 1922, and this may explain why she gave her status as widow.

When Martha and William were married the second time in 1925 she used her correct birth names of Martha Rosalia and her status was recorded as divorced. Interesting to note William's status was recorded as single.

When looking at the marriage details and birth dates of their children it is easy to get confused. It would be interesting to find out when Martha (or Myrtle) obtained her divorce from Ernest HAMLYN, and if she was ever charged for bigamy. Further research may find the answer.
