There are Newspaper accounts of the inquest held in Wolverhampton following the suicide of George Lovell's first wife, Lemontina Smith, called his 'paramour' presumably because they were not married. One of them is from the Manchester Guardian and the date given in the source [Scott Macfie at LIV.UNI K35. p.2] is January 1874.

Spencer and Absali LOVELL

Spencer LOVELL married Absali [various spellings] who may have been a LOVERIDGE - see the second baptism for Cinderella below:


Spencer bp19/3/1843 Bradley WOR [mother: 'Prudence'] basket maker of Cowbridge CRM 'the child was born in a lane, his parents being trampers pursuing their trade of basket making'

Another indication that Absali was a LOVERIDGE is their son Alfred's marriage in 1876 where he is called 'Alfred Lovell or Loveridge'. Possibly Alfred is the same as Olphus above who may well be the same as Ludolphus.
