Mrs. Edwin Forrest

Catherine Norton Sinclair married Edwin Forrest, the actor, on June 23, 1837, in London. She was the daughter of John Sinclair, a popular English singer. Their marriage turned out to be unhappy and they engaged in a bitter and sensational divorce which came to trial in 1851. It was widely covered by the press. Sinclair won and the actor was assessed alimony and costs. Mr. Forrest appealed the case five times, but lost each time.
