Ancestors and descendants of LONGWORTH RIDGE YELVERTON of Dannevirke, New Zealand

Longworth Ridge Yelverton was born in 1876 in New Zealand

- his father was Augustus Barrymore Yelverton (1829-1909)
- his grandfather was Hon. Augustus Yelverton (1802-1864)
- his great grandfather was William Charles Yelverton, 2nd Viscount Avonmore (1762-1814) - this William Charles married Mary Reade in 1787 and they had 2 daughters and 3 sons.
One of their sons, Barry John Yelverton became 3rd Viscount Avonmore.
- Barry John married Jane Boothe in 1811, he married again in 1822 to his cousin Cecilia O'Keefe. They had 5 daughters and 2 sons. One of the sons, William Charles Yelverton (1824-1883) became the 4th Viscount Avonmore. He married Maria Teresa Longworth in 1857 so she became Thérèse Yelverton, Viscountess Avonmore.
... This infamous pair met in 1852, shortly after the battle of Balaclava. He was a decorated officer and she a nurse, with the French Sisters of Charity, who had tended to the wounded in the aftermath of the battle. They fell in love and maintained an amorous correspondence. They were married by Scots Law in April 1857 at Killowen in August 1857. After the wedding they traveled in England, Scotland, and France. When in Bordeaux, Theresa fell ill, and also was pregnant (she lost the baby). The major left her there. When she was well, she wrote to him, imploring him to make their marriage public. He said that this would ruin him, (Irish law forbade Protestants and Catholics to marry) he told her to find some rich man to marry and go to New Zealand. This was the last she heard from him.
She had nowhere to go but to friends, so she went to one in Scotland. Imagine her surprise when she heard the news of her husband's marriage on the 26th June to the Widow Forbes, a woman of large fortune from Edinburgh - she was Emily Marianne (nee Ashworth), the youngest daughter of Major General Sir Charles Ashworth, KCB (Knight Commander, Order of the Bath)
When Theresa began legal proceedings against her "husband" he countered that their so-called marriage had not taken place. Though the legal question of the case concerned events which occurred in Britain after the war, the trial nevertheless focused much attention on Yelverton's alleged seduction of the nurse.
The Viscount used his influence with the British House of Lords to annul his earlier marriage to Thérèse Yelverton.
The case had much notoriety, with great support for her by the public.
The Viscount Avonmore was hung in effegy and he had to briefly go into hiding.
Yelverton said they openly indulged in illicit sexual relations with no thought of marriage.
Defending her reputation Maria Theresa swore she had remained chaste after the Scottish marriage until they celebrated Roman Catholic Nuptials whilst on a trip to Ireland (thereby marrying him twice)
The Major alleged the Irish Marriage Ceremony was merely a Catholic blessing, procured to ease Theresas conscience and so far as he was concerned she was just his concubine . . .
Because she was Catholic and Major William Yelverton was a Protestant, the marriage was declared illegal.
Despite deserting her and marrying another woman, Theresa spent many years in litigation establishing her right to her husbands name. She took a great interest in the death of Prince Louis Napoleon and when the Empress Eugenie visited Zululand Theresa followed and travelled extensively in South Africa, dying in 1882 of paralysis in Pietermaritzburg
