Florence was her daughter from her marriage to Charles William Cooper according to the birth certificate. However, perhaps the name Blowers was a deliberate attempt to hide her real married name]. Findmypast.com: Indexes to Divorce and Matrimonial Causes. From 1873 all cases were heard by the then newly created Supreme Court of Judication, Probate and Admiralty Division, London, England. Causes are listed by hand in entry books under the first letter of the Petitioners surname and record the full name of the Petitioner and the full name of the Defendant(s). Entry from index reads: 1903 3934 Cooper (Chas. Wm.) & C (Eliza Zoe) & Mackenzy (Fred) orse (otherwise known as) Sterry (Robert James) The C before (Eliza Zoe) stands for Cooper. Fred Mackenzy and Robert James Sterry are also named as defendants. [Robert James Sterry aka Fred Mackenzy is presumably Robert James Quelch.]
