Foster, Frederick Alfred (1831–1871)

Frederick Foster gave his occupation as barrister-at-law when he married his cousin Henrietta Foster at Hobart in 1853. He petitioned for a divorce in England in 1859, citing John Hodgson, a student at St John's College, Cambridge, as a co-respondent. In January 1870, claiming he was a bachelor, and with 'literary' as an occupation, he married Emily Hames at Hobart; they were living apart by the next year.
