I am experiencing some confusion solidifying ancestor records in Cornwall, circa 1850-1870's. I have found many sources (census, marriage and birth records), but I have not run across records detailing divorces, annulments, etc. It appears my ancestors had several marriages, but cannot document the end of the marriage. In one case, death was not the cause of the marriage ending, as I see the wife in several census' later, plus a death record after her husband remarried and moved to U.S.

How were marriages dissolved in U.K., more specifically Cornwall during this time? How were they documented, if at all?
