William Copeland Borlase, MP for Cornwall East 1880-1885 and St. Austell 1885-1887
Borlase's downfall appears to have been a fine example of Congreve's famously misquoted
phrase that "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."
After being appointed Under-Secretary of the Local Government Board in 1886, Borlase's
career crashed in the following year when his mistress, Madame de Quiros, spilt the beans
over their relationship and his level of debts.
The following edited report of Borlase's bankruptcy hearing is taken from "Lloyd's Weekly
Newspaper" of 4 December 1887:-
'At the London Bankruptcy court, on Wednesday, a meeting was held, before Mr. Registrar
Giffard, for the public examination of William Copeland Borlase, ex-M.P. for St. Austell, and
Under-Secretary of the Local Government Board in the last Liberal Administration. The
bankrupt is described as of Laregan, Penzance, and Bond-street……Madame L. de Quiros
had been entered in his statement as a creditor for £5,111, to which was a note to the
effect that the money claimed by her had been lent between 1883 and 1887, and that she
had recovered judgment for £3,700 in default of his being able to pay the money into court;
but that he did not admit the claim, as she was in possession of furniture and jewellery and
other articles which more than covered the debt. That statement was absolutely true. - Do
you swear that she has ever lent you money? - To the best of my recollection, she has not.
I first knew Mdme. de Quiros when she resided at Hyde-park-place, where she had a
furnished house of her own. - And did you pass as Mr. de Quiros? - Never, that I am aware
of. The servants might have announced me as Mr. de Quiros, but I never went by that
name. - Were you a married man at that time? - I was. - Did you conceal from her the fact
that you were a married man? - Certainly not. When I first knew her she was possessed of
some furniture at Hyde-park-place, but I afterwards paid £800 to retain the furniture. It was
afterwards removed to Queen Anne-street, which house I took in my own name. What did
you allow this lady? - I allowed her the sum of £25 per week. I allowed it her first because
I knew her history and pitied her, but it was afterwards extorted from me. - What do you
mean by that expression? - It was extorted from me in consequence of my public position
as M.P. and magistrate for my county. It was not an extortion at first, but it became one
when this lady followed me all over the world to Spain, and finally to Wales, where I had to
obtain police protection against her and a bully who was with her. The last £500 he had
given to her was in Trafalgar-square. She was passing in a cab, and she flew at him and
attacked him before people whom he knew and made him go to the bank and get the £500  
£500 for her. It was a fact that Madame de Quiros had given a bill of sale over the furniture
at Queen Anne-street to a Mr. Brown, and he had given her the money to repay Brown.
Madame de Quiros accused him of things which he had never done, and at two o'clock in
the morning she insisted on walking down the street and going into his wife's bedroom and
telling her who he was and who she was. Since then his life had been a misery from the
action of Madame de Quiros.'
Borlase's next examination was in late January 1888. The "Ipswich Journal" commented in
its issue of 27 January 1888:-
'Madame de Quiros, the lady for whom the debtor [Borlase] had furnished and maintained
at the expenditure of £25 a week a sumptious residence in Queen Anne-street, is the most
unrelenting of his creditors. Her counsel has had Mr. Borlase under examination for eight
hours, and today she occupied a seat in Court, and prompted questions which were likely
to be embarrassing to the debtor. The name of another lady whom Mr. Borlase had started
in business at an expenditure of £6 was introduced, but the debtor absolutely refused to
answer questions relating to this transaction  unless he were allowed to make an
explanation, which would "involve a third party." This, however, did not seem pleasing to
Madame's counsel, and the subject was not pursued. But even after such a degrading
exposure as that to which Mr. Borlase had been subjected, the measure of this implacable
female's vengeance was not appeased. As the parties left the Court she warned him, in
tones loud enough to provoke the remonstrance of the Registrar, that he need not delude
himself into the belief that the exposure of his conduct (she did not use the word conduct)
was at an end. Mr. Borlase has learnt by a bitter lesson how fiercely a woman can hate.'
