Emily Florence Coker

Emily Florence CokerEmily Florence Coker (born 16 Jan 1862 Limehouse, London, England, UK, died Aug 1946 in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia) married Albert Card and had  one child with him after having a child out of wedlock in 1881 who died shortly after birth.


She divorced Albert Card in 1912 after he abandoned her and son Harold in Perth and returned to England where he seems to have co-habited with a woman known as Madam Montague.


The census record reveals Albert living in Surrey in 1911 with Annie Montague POWELL,  a widow aged 46, described as a clairvoyant and chierosophist (possibly refers to theosophy). Albert is described as her uncle and his occupation as phrenologist and chierosophist.


In 1919, there is a report of an attempted suicide by Albert Card (palmist) at Paignton, Devon and, by 1921, Emily noted in a letter to the Australian Army after the death of son Harold that his father had committed suicide in England.


Before Albert Card abandoned his family in Australia, he had been secretary of the North Perth Roads Board and the North Perth municipality's town clerk. The public record paints a picture of a man who could not do either job and who was sacked for incompetence.

In 1904 the Sunday Times newspaper called him Currish, Card, a beery, bungling, blackguard. The report clearly defines his faults and, in hindsight, it is easy to see the man was emotionally unstable.
