ID# 1087, (1899-)
Ethel Cecilia Leer was born in 1899 in London, England.1 She was the daughter of George Leer and Sarah Ann Hedges.2 She married first Charles Michael Doyle, son of James Joseph Doyle and Mary Ann Hamilton, on 6 April 1918 in St Peter's Church, New Westminster, British Columbia.1,3 She and Charles Michael Doyle were divorced on 11 November 1921 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Ethel petitioned for the divorce on the grounds of adultery and cruelty which were the only permissible grounds in Canada at the time. Since both Charles and Ethel remarried a month later, this was undoubtedly an uncontested divorce.4 She married second Alfred Lewarne on 26 December 1921 in Burnaby, British Columbia.2
