|DECEE NISI GRANTED.
HAMILTON, Thursday [6 February 1919]
Petition for a divorce from her husband, Norman W. L Mair, was made by Ivy June Mair (Mr. Stanton), in the Supreme Court, before Mr. Justice Cooper to-day.
Evidence was given in support of the petition that Mair left his wife and wrote stating that he would not return, and suggesting a separation. For a time respondent did not contribute towards his wife's support, but he did so when a maintenance order was made. The Judge said it had evidently been a very unhappy marriage. The wife was entitled to her husband's company, but he had refused to give it. There had been constructive desertion, and the petitioner was entitled to a divorce.
A decree nisi was granted, petitioner being granted interim custody of the child. The decree nisi is to be moved absolute in three months.
The following are the criminal and civil lists for the March
sittings of the Supreme Court at Hamilton.

On 23 August 1919 Ivy Joined the SS Malta Captained By Andrew Collyer
The ship Niagara arrived in Auckland from Sydney on Monday 1 September 1919,
having left Sydney the previous Thursday 28 August.
On board was Mr E W Alison jr. (New Zealand Herald, 3 September 1919 p.5).
Had he just taken his sister to Sydney to catch the ship to London?
During the trip to England Ivy apparently had an affair with Captain Collyer and
as a result fell unexpectedly? pregnant,
Ivy arrived in London on the ss Malta on 27th October, she remained in uk till after the birth
of her daughter Averil 20th April 1920, a month Premature?
Its not Clear when Ivy charged Captain Collyer with fatherhoood, by dec 1919 he had already taken his next ship , The Bremin, for New Zealand.
Averil's birth was not intially registered - was Ivy intending to take her home to NZ?
Auckland star 18th March 1921, Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Alison left by the Maheno for Sydney en route for England, where they propose staying for some months. It may only have been with pressure from her parents after their arrival in UK that Captain Collyer was named as father and the child registered 3rdqt1921 in Bristol.
It was arranged that Captain Collyer's married sister Marion should adopt the child however as an artist she lead a somewhat bohemian life and it seeems her husband's lover, who was much younger, took on much of the task of raising Averil.

|HON. E. W. ALISON BACK AGAIN.
Mr. Alison was in England during the drought, when the English people would have welcomed a little rain, and he says he felt hotter in London than ever he has felt in Auckland, even in February. The fine weather seemed to follow the party wherever they went, and it was just the same on the water. Even the notorious Australian Bight, and the usually roaring Bay o' Biscay were as polite as Lake Ta'kapuna on a windless day in mid-summer, and gambling on his luck Mr. Alison gained scume notoriety on the Maheno by prophecying a smooth water run, even though the officers looked dubious and spoke about a bit of a blow when asked by slightly nervous passengers as to the prospects.
Mr. Alison says people at Home were more than kind and simply overwhelmed the New Zealanders with hospitality. A long round of visits and entertainments culminated in a command to a garden party at Buckingham Palace. Speaking about conditions at Home, Mr. Alison said one of the most noticeable things was the continual interruptions to work, and the apathy of the British workers. On the Continent the contrast to this listlessnees was most marked. He found the Continental workers "hard at it. In France everyone seemed to be at work straightening out things after the terrible war.
