George (Leggo) Johns born 1862, St Just, Cornwall, emigrated to Melbourne/Bendigo in 1885, with his father George Johns accompanying him although he came back to England at some stage. George (1862) married a Jane Andrew on 13 Aug 1887 in Daylesford, Victoria. She was born in 1848 so 14 years older than George. They had two children, Edgar Willie, b.1888, died 1953 Essendon, Melbourne & Annie born 1890 who didn't survive her first year. It all now gets very interesting with a notice in the Victoria Police Gazettes, dated 8th April 1899, stating that George has been 'charged on warrant, for the desertion of his wife, Jane Johns' on the 7th inst. George had left home on he morning of Good Friday (31st March) and hadn't been back since. He is then arrested on the 18th April 1899, after being seen with 'another woman' in the street by his wife, who confronted him!! George has only gone and married a widow, Charlotte Roberts Leggo (nee Rowe), b.1846, St Just, Cornwall! Imagine they must have known (or of) each other in St Just. He told Charlotte, he was a widower.... Charlotte was visibly distressed at giving evidence at George's trial. George subsequently, charged with Bigamy and sentenced to two years imprisonment. He was released from Pentridge Prison on 17th Nov 1900. Jane applied for a divorce on the 6th Dec 1900, with a notice being sent to the prison and this was when she discovered he had been released. All the above information is from newspaper articles found on Trove.au What I now would like to know is, are there actual court documents relating to George's trial and his time in prison? What became of George after his release? Will there be an actual marriage certificate for his marriage to Charlotte? Also, what happened to Jane and was she granted her divorce? Maybe she wanted to remarry! All I have for her is dob 1848 and marriage 1887. Was she previously married? Charlotte's first husband was Madron/Maddern Leggo 1837-1891. They married in 1874, St Just, Cornwall, England and emigrated in 1886. Charlotte moved to Sydney with her daughter Eva. She died there in 1934 and is buried in Macquarie Park Cemetery.
