  • 27 Apr 1926, WIFE HARVESTED ON FARM -- HUSBAND FLIRTED IN CITY. A story of a woman's laborious life on a farm whilst her husband "carried on" with girls whom he employed in his city office was related to Mr. Justice Weigall in the Divorce Court, Melbourne, on Friday by Elizabeth Kate Buckley, 46, of Broughalum street, Richmond, who sought the dissolution of her marriage with Allan Frank Buckley, 51, of Ryton, on the grounds of desertion and misconduct.

Petitioner said that at the time of the marriage respondent was an auctioneer and at various stages subsequently he acted as secretary of the Licensed Victuallers' Association, estate agent and dealer in land and tea, farmer and stone carrier by steamer along the River Murray. In October, 1921, when they were living at Toora on a farm, respondent required her to taken charge of all the farming work. This meant that she had to do harvesting, cart water and timber and milk the cows. During this period he was engaged in land dealing in Melbourne. Subsequently he absented himself from the home and as the result of her mode of existence she had a nervous breakdown. After being in the Yarram Hospital for several weeks her husbanid said he would place her in another institution and that her mother could look after her for the rest of her life. Shortly afterwards he placed her in the Royal Park Receiving House as a patient. Whilst she was living in the country attending the properties respondent was employing young women in his office and showing attention to them. One of the women was Agnes Helen Satchwell, with whomn he subsequently lived in Adelaide. Other evidence was given that respondent had admitted paren tage of a child by Miss Satchwell. A decree nisi was granted.7
