The Lord Wynford sat Speaker by virtue of a former Commission.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure.

The House was resumed by The Lord Chancellor.

Lords take the Oaths.

This Day John Christopher Lord Dawnay and George Lord Meldrum took the Oaths, and also took and subscribed the Oath of Abjuration, pursuant to the Statutes.

Calcraft's Divorce Bill.

The Order of the Day being read for the Second Reading of the Bill, intituled, "An Act to dissolve the Marriage of Granby Hales Calcraft Esquire with Sarah Emma otherwise Emma his now Wife, and to enable him to marry again; and for other Purposes therein mentioned;" and for hearing Counsel for and against the same; and for the Lords to be summoned;

Counsel were accordingly called in:

And Mr. Adam appearing as Counsel in Support of the Bill; and Mr. Jervis appearing as Counsel for Mrs. Calcraft;

Mr. Adam was heard to open the Allegations of the Bill.

Then Edward Walker was called in; and having been sworn, was examined as follows:

(By Counsel.) "Are you Clerk to Mr. Lake, Captain Calcraft's Solicitor?"

"I am."

"Did you at any Time serve Mrs. Calcraft with an examined Copy of the Order of this House for the Second Reading of this Bill?"

"Yes."

"When was it?"

"On the 1st of this Month."

"Where was it?"

"At Stapleford Place, Lord Harborough's Residence."

"Did you see Lord Harborough upon this Occasion?"

"I did."

"Did he introduce you to Mrs. Calcraft?"

"He did."

The Witness was directed to withdraw.

Then The Reverend William Mathew Thisleton was called in; and having been sworn, was examined as follows:

(By Counsel.) "I believe you are Parish Clerk of the Parish of Saint Pancras?"

"I am."

"Do you produce the Marriage Register of that Parish in the Year 1828?"

"I do."

"Will you turn to an Entry in November 1828 of the Marriage of Granby Calcraft and Emma Love, and read the same?"

The Witness read the same as follows:

"Granby Calcraft of the Parish of St. George, Hanover Square, Bachelor, and Emma Love of this Parish, Spinster, were married in this Church by Licence, with Consent of this 10th Day of November in the Year 1828, by me, I. Brackenbury, Curate.

"This Marriage was solemnized between us Granby Calcraft.
Emma Love.

"In the Presence of
O. Y. Thisleton.
Sarah Whitby."

"Is that your Handwriting?"

"No, it is not; it is my Brother's Handwriting."

"Does he officiate for you?"

"He does; he did at that Time."

(Mr. Jervis.) "You were not present yourself at the Marriage?"

"No, I was not."

The Witness was directed to withdraw.

"No; no one."

"You say there was a Quarrel between Mr. Calcraft and Mrs. Love; what did that originate in?"

"From whom?"

"From Mrs. Love."

"How many Weeks?"

"I cannot say."

"After she knew of it, did she behave any better to Mr. Calcraft?"

"No; she never took any Notice of him at all."

"Is Miss Love a sort of Person that ever talked to her Maid?"

"Not a great deal; she did sometimes."

"Did you ever mention to her what an odd Thing it was that her Mamma would not speak to her Husband?"

"No."

"Were you ever in a Place before?"

"Yes."

"With whom did you serve before?"

"I have been in several Places."

"You said that no other Person used to visit her so much as Lord Harborough; has any other Person ever visited her at all?"

"Not at the Time he visited her."

"How long did Lord Harborough visit her?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it a Month or a Year?"

"It was a long Time."

"A Year and a Half?"

"I should think it was more than that."

"Used they to correspond by Letters?"

"And then you saw Mrs. Love in the Room?"

"Yes."

"How long were you there during his Visits?"

"I was there a length of Time."

"A Year?"

"About a Year."

"Do you mean to say that, during all the Time, every Time you shewed Lord Harborough into the Room, the Mother was in the Room too?"

"Yes."

"Did the Mother never go separate from the Daughter?"

"No; they were always together."

"Do you mean to represent to the House, that every one of those Times that you went into the Room, Mrs. Love was in the Room with Miss Love?"

"I cannot say, because sometimes the Lady used to go up Stairs."

"When she was in the Room alone did you see Lord Harborough go into the Room to her?"

"No; because he was in the Room then."

"Did you ever see her and Lord Harborough in the Room alone, without the Mother?"

"Yes."

"Was the Mother always there, or not?"

"When his Lordship used to visit Miss Love, Mrs. Love always used to stay in the Room a length of Time; sometimes she went up Stairs, but she was down Stairs directly almost."

"How was it possible for you to know that?"

"I could always hear them; the Houses were neither of them very large."

"How late used Lord Harborough to stay of an Evening?"

"Sometimes very late."

"How late?"

"Twelve or One o'Clock, sometimes."

"Used he ever to stay 'till Three or Four?"

"I cannot say exactly."

"Did you let him out?"

"Yes."

"At those Times did Mrs. Love always remain up?"

"She always did."

"Did you never find Miss Love alone, without her Mother, when Lord Harborough went out at Three o'Clock in the Morning?"

"No."

"Who did Miss Love sleep with?"

"In Margaret Street she slept in the same Room with her Mother."

"And in the other Place, where?"

"In the next Room to her Mother's."

"Was that at the Time that Lord Harborough visited?"

"Yes."

"Did you ever hear Miss Love speak of Lord Harborough?"

"Did you tell him that Lord Harborough was there?"

"Did he ask you who was there?"

"No; he walked in."

"Was this after Mrs. Love knew of the Marriage?"

"I cannot say, for I do not know when Mrs. Love did know of the Marriage."

"Did you hear Mr. Calcraft say any thing to Lord Harborough?"

"Yes. After Mr. Calcraft found his Lordship was there, he said that he would have Satisfaction: that I heard him say in the Passage."

"Did he say that to Lord Harborough in the Presence of Mrs. Love and Miss Love?"

"No; Miss Love was up Stairs, and Mrs. Love was in the Passage."

"Did Lord Harborough say any thing to him?"

"I did not hear him say any thing."

"Was Captain Calcraft married at that Time?"

"It was after the Marriage."

"Was the other Time after the Marriage?"

"Yes."

"Did Lord Harborough ask if Mr. Calcraft was there?"

"No; he asked to see Mrs. Love; and I went up and told Mrs. Love that his Lordship wished to see her. She came down Stairs, and went into the Parlour to him."

"Did Captain Calcraft see him at that Time?"

"Not that I know of."

"You stated that Captain Calcraft Twice saw Lord Harborough after the Marriage; when was it he saw Lord Harborough the Second Time?"

"No; I said that it was Twice that Lord Harborough and Mr. Calcraft were in the House together."

"What took place upon that Occasion?"

"Mrs. Love came down and saw his Lordship in the Parlour. Mr. Calcraft and Miss Love were in the Drawing Room; and Mrs. Love went into the Drawing Room, and asked Mr. Calcraft if he would allow Miss Love to speak to his Lordship."

"Were you there when she asked that Question?"

"No."

"Did Miss Love go?"

"I do not know."

"How long did Lord Harborough remain?"

"Not a great while."

"And then went away?"

"Yes."

"Are you sure those are the only Two Times?"

"I do not recollect any more Times than that."

"And that Mr. Calcraft only saw him Once?"

"Yes."

"Do you mean to say that Lord Harborough was never after seen at Miss Love's House by Captain Calcraft before the Marriage?"

"I cannot swear that, because I might be down Stairs."

"Do you mean to say that you do not know that they saw one another there?"

"Yes, I do."

"Did you mean also to swear that after the Marriage they only saw one another Once?"

"No; I cannot swear that."

"Not a great while."

"Did you continue to live with Miss Love after the Marriage?"

"Yes, I did."

"How long did Mr. Calcraft and Miss Love continue to live together as Man and Wife?"

"They never lived together at all."

"Do you mean to say that this Marriage never was consummated by the Two Parties?"

"I cannot swear to that."

"What is your Belief?"

"They never lived in the House together, and Miss Love was never away from her Home."

"She never was away One Night from Home?"

"No."

"Was there a Sofa in the Room?"

"Yes."

"What is your Belief upon the Subject? Do you believe that they did consummate, or that they did not?"

"How long was it after the Marriage before Mr. Calcraft and Miss Love ceased to see one another?"

"I cannot tell how long."

"Do you know whether it was a Month or a Year?"

"It was not near a Year."

"Was it Two Months?"

"I should think it was."

"What made them give over seeing one another?"

"I really cannot say."

"Do you know of nothing having happened?"

"Because she went with his Lordship, I suppose."

"Where did she go with his Lordship?"

"From the Black's Head."

"Were you with her then?"

"Yes."

"Did you continue with her?"

"No; I continued with Mrs. Love."

"Did Mrs. Love go with her to Nottingham?"

"Yes."

"How long was she at Nottingham?"

"About Three or Four Days."

"Was Mr. Calcraft there?"

"No."

"How long before she went to Nottingham had you seen Mr. Calcraft and her together?"

"Not a great while."

"What do you call a great while; a Week?"

"I do not know, I am sure, how long it was."

"You must know whether it was a Week or a Day: was it a Month?"

"I do not know how long it was."

"How long before Mrs. Calcraft went to Nottingham was the last Time he saw her?"

"It might be a Week or a Fortnight, but I cannot say, for I do not remember how long it was."

"Then he did not go to Nottingham with her?"

"No, he did not go to Nottingham with her."

"When did you see Captain Calcraft next after Nottingham?"

"I have never seen him since."

"When you saw Lord Harborough go off with Miss Love, did you go and tell Mr. Calcraft?"

"No."

"Why did not you?"

"I was at Nottingham, and he was at his Regiment, I believe."

"How long did you remain at Nottingham?"

"He went to Nottingham on Sunday, and came to London on Monday."

"Was he in Town?"

"No; I believe he was with his Regiment."

"Did not you write to tell him?"

"No, I did not."

"Did not Mrs. Love write?"

"Not that I know of."

"Mrs. Love knew that she was gone away with Lord Harborough?"

"Yes."

"Did you ever hear Mrs. Love say any thing about Lord Harborough, as if she preferred him to Captain Calcraft?"

"No, I never did."

"Did Miss Love say any thing to you about Lord Harborough?"

"No."

"Have you continued living with Mrs. Love ever since?"

"Yes."

"And you still are in her Service?"

"Yes."

"When did you last see Miss Love?"

"I have never seen her since she left Nottingham."

"Has she ever been at her Mother's?"

"I do not know."

"Have you ever seen her with her Mother?"

"No."

"Nor Lord Harborough?"

"No."

"Nor Mr. Calcraft?"

"No; I never saw Mr. Calcraft since, 'till I saw him just now in the Passage."

"You said, before that, previous to the Marriage, Mr. Calcraft used to stop 'till Two in the Morning, and after the Marriage he stopped 'till Three or Four?"

"Yes."

"And you knew they were married at that Time?"

"Yes."

"At that Time did the Mother go to Bed?"

"Yes, she did."

"And left them together?"

"Yes."

"But when Lord Harborough was there 'till Three in the Morning the Mother never went to Bed?"

"No, she always sat up."

"Did Miss Love ever tell you the Reason why her Mother sat up when Lord Harborough was there, and not when Captain Calcraft was there?"

"No."

"Did the Mother go to Bed before the Marriage as well as after the Marriage?"

"No."

"Why do you say that she always went to Bed when Mr. Calcraft was there, but never when Lord Harborough was there; what Reason have you for saying that?"

"Because Mr. Calcraft and Mrs. Love were not good Friends, and his Lordship and Mrs. Love were good Friends."

"Were you ordered by Miss Love to keep this Marriage secret?"

"Yes, I was."

"Did Miss Love give you any Reason?"

"No."

"Did she order you particularly to keep it secret from Mrs. Love?"

"Yes."

"When did Mrs. Love find out that they were married?"

"I really cannot tell."

Re-examined.

(By Counsel.) "You stated that there was a Sofa in the Room?"

"There was."

"After the Marriage in the Month of November do you remember, on the Evenings when Captain Calcraft had been with Miss Love in the Room, ever finding any Combs or Bracelets and other Articles of Dress upon the Carpet?"

"Yes, I did."

"Did that happen frequently?"

"Sometimes it did."

"What Articles did you find upon the Carpet?"

"The Bracelets and the Combs from her Hair."

"Were you always in the habit of attending Miss Love when she undressed to go to Bed?"

"Yes, I was."

"Do you remember, upon the Evenings when Captain Calcraft used to visit her, whether she used to send you down Stairs before she began to undress?"

"Sometimes she did."

"When you returned up did you find her Dress in the same Situation as when you left her, or had any Alteration taken place?"

"No; sometimes she used to undress herself."

"Did you, upon your Return, ascertain whether her Dress had been rumpled or pulled about, or not, in consequence of its having been taken off?"

"No."

"Did it appear to you that Miss Love sent you down Stairs upon those Occasions with any Design for any Purpose?"

"No, it did not."

"She used not to do it always?"

"No."

"Was it generally upon the Occasions when Captain Calcraft visited her that she sent you down Stairs?"

"I do not remember that she did at any other Time."
