When did the flds church break away from the lds church

When the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the LDS or Mormon church) banned the practice of polygamy in October, 1890, those who did not agree with this decision left the Church. The dissenters were unorganized for awhile, but organization began in 1912 with Lorin C. Woolley. By 1932 the Council of Friends formed, naming seven high priests and uniting most of the dissenters into a single group. The FLDS name did not appear until 1987, but this appears to be more of a name change, not a reorganization.
