Connecticut Divorces: Superior Court Records for the Counties of New London, Tolland, and Windham, 1719–1910
Compiled by Grace Louise Knox and Barbara B. Ferris
This new compilation brings a wealth of information to genealogists whose ancestors initiated divorce proceedings in the Connecticut counties of New London (1719–1875), Tolland (1787–1910), and Windham (1726–1907).
Each entry identifies the husband and wife (maiden name included when known), date of marriage, hometown, reason for requesting divorce, children (oftentimes by name), and the town where the divorce was applied for and date of application. Other information, given occasionally, includes such things as the children’s ages, where the spouse deserted to, requests for name changes, and names of adulterers. A surname index adds to the value of this work.
