Martha Endell  Em'ly's friend. She is a suffering woman who is forced to go to London to hide her  shame. Martha redeems herself by saving Em'ly from a similar life and finds happiness in her own  life after she arrives in Australia. Mr. Spenlow  A proctor and partner in a law firm in Doctor's Commons. He is a pompous, aristocratic  lawyer who objects to David's plans to marry his daughter. Dora Spenlow  David's first wife. She is an impractical, empty-headed girl who cannot cook or  manage a household. Although she is a poor selection as a wife, David is so taken by her childlike  beauty that he overlooks her faults and marries her. Their marriage is a comedy of mismanagement  until Dora dies, leaving David free to marry the domestically perfect Agnes. Mr. Omer  The Yarmouth undertaker and dealer in funeral clothes. Minnie Omer  Mr. Omer's daughter and Em'ly's working companion.
