I don't understand the reason for divorce, was does it mean by "intermarried"?
I may mean he married a relation - possibly a cousin. But it could mean that she was Jewish.

I Googled 'intermarriage' and most hits relate to Jews marrying non-Jews.

I do take OC's point about the misery of anyone who had to earn her living as a prostitute but I didn't feel AK was praising Elizabeth for her business sense so much as her ability to survive and bring up her children alone. Maybe she had no other choices too. Having discovered a twig on my own tree which contains a relative and her husband who ran a "house of ill repute" (a tavern in 18th century London actually but an Old Bailey trial record makes it quite clear what their secondary business was), I know that it does induce a certain amount of hilarity when you first find the evidence.

I wish the whole programme last night had been devoted to the Braham family instead of a good half being taken up with war service....again. I'm beginning to feel the series should be renamed" What Did My Ancestor Do In The War?". I hope we don't get any more.

Perhaps they're going to produce a spin-off with that title.

I haven't watched it yet (as usual!), but I suppose her first reaction to her ancestor's business is just that - a first reaction!

Ooh, I think that York Street address was where Eve Braham married Lawrence Emmanuel!

There was a series along those lines a few years ago - was it for the 90th anniversary of the end of WW1? I wonder whether they will have another one when it is the 100th anniversary of the start or end of the war.
