The Wives of Hereward Carrington
The personal life of Hereward leaves more questions with every answer found. His 3 marriages were all somewhat questionable. His 2nd wife is often confused with his 3rd wife who for some strange reason she changed her name from Mary to Marie. Marie was also the name of his 2nd wife. Believe me, it confused me for a while as I built up data which didn't quite make sense until I found out I was dealing with 2 different people. Hereward was a vegetarian and an early and vocal proponent of fasting as an aid to health. Hereward published a book with his ex-wife in 1956, a short book called "Hints on Fasting Well." Hereward had already been writing occasionally about fasting for decades.
