I've just started researching my family tree and need to check if I'm related to John Wade approx 1875 and Mary Louisa Wade 1879. On my family record I have them living at 10 Woodhead Road, Bradford according to the 1901 Census. I have John Wade's occupation as Boiler Makers Foreman. I'm getting confused because my source says they have 2 children John (1899) and Samuel (1901). I believe that Samuel was a jockey in Perth and died in a racing accident in 1922. (Sunday Times Perth Edition) I googled Jockey Wade Death and the newspaper article states that Samuel's dad was John Wade. When living back in England John Wade (1899) spoke to his grandaughter (my mother) about Palmyra , Freestone, Perth. Are you able to confirm if the Mary Louisa Wade (1879 approx) and John Wade approx (1875) were also the parents of John (1899) and Samuel (1901)? Many thanks Debs

Hello Deborah

Afraid I have no connection to the family, though I might have posted a comment on a wiki page in the past.

Saw the following: The Daily News (Perth, WA) Thu 18 May 1922




The case, John Wade and Mary Louisa Wade v. George Hoskins and O. Williams, in which applicants asked for £500 compensation under the Workers' Compensation Act, was continued and concluded in the Local Court, before Mr. A. S. Canning, yesterday afternoon. Mr G. H. Joseph appeared for petitioners, and Mr. T. A. L. Davy for respondents.

This case was a sequel to a recent racing accident, when the young apprenticed jockey, Samuel Wade, lost his life while riding Urabilla in the last race of the day, the Welter, at Canning Park races, on Saturday, January 21.

Under the Act applicants, as partial dependants, claimed for three years' earnings, or £400, whichever happened to be the greater, so long as the maximum did not exceed £500. For this reason counsel for applicants endeavored to show that deceased's earnings totalled more than £400, and counsel for the defence concentrated on proving that the money received did not amount to that sum.

The reason for two respondents being bracketed together was that Hoskins, deceased's master, lent Wade to Williams, a bookmaker, and owner of Urabilla, for the last race, and both parties denied liability under the Act.

Evidence was given by the parents of the deceased boy, showing that he contributed on an average £2 per week to the home.

Mrs. Wade stated that deceased had promised to put his earnings into a home for the family at Belmont. The father said that there were four young children in the family, and as the two eldest sons were married, they had been partially dependant on deceased.

The magistrate said that the whole case was in a nutshell. He (Mr.' Canning) quoted the definition of "employer in the Workers' Compensation Act, and remarked that if the words were interpreted as they stood, Hoskins was the person liable.

Inter alia; the Act stated, 'the latter, (employer) shall be deemed to continue to be the employer of the worker while he is working for that other person.'

On consideration of the evidence he (the magistrate) thought if would be adequate compensation if he awarded applicants £275 and costs; less the £25 already paid by respondents.

The question of indemnity, by which Williams can claim for the amount from Hoskins under the Act, was not touched upon.

At the request of Mr. Davy a stay of seven days was granted.

Thanks for the sourcing on the Wade family members that I have on my watchlist. One of my Blosser ancestors married into the Wade family. Believe her name was America Blosser Wade. Let me know if you are ever interested in being co manager for any of the Wade ancestors I manage and I will happily share them with you!

Many thanks, Cindy Williams Lesure

Hello Cindy

Thanks for your message and the offer, but I'm not connected with the family in any way.

Have a good week.

Thank you for the info on Buchanan birth dates that appeared in the press. However I think the one for a daughter on 28 Mar 1846 is in error. Elsewhere it has been given as May. Furthermore the announcement appears in the 5 June issue, long after the event whereas the other three are all within a week of the birth. But thanks anyway.

Thank you for the information on Thomas Fowell Buxton. I finally found the right profile and cut and pasted your information into his bio. There are LOTS of Thomas Fowell Buxtons, and the right one was, if I can remember the lineage, the grand nephew of the profile you posted on. I had originally thot there were only three (father son and grandson) but the siblings of those three ALSO had children they named Thomas Fowell Buxton. Interesting search. Thanks again!!

Many thanks Robert for all the newspaper items for Mary Dorcas Wade & family. Much appreciated and saved me a lot of leg work. Strange that I just started working on her profile yesterday..........

Thanks for the biographical details on Sir Robert Wade. With his brother a knight also, it sounded as though knights back then were as common as European counts, but Robert certainly earned his knighthood. Was it you who supplied the report of Jean's Bernie-46 accident? He saved her arm. She never mentioned the accident, but late in life, she couldn't lift her arms above shoulder level. I thought it was rotator cuff problems, like mine.

If you'd like I can add you to his trusted list to work on.. He's a collatoral line to my Disbrow's

Thanks for the info about Ed Phippard, Robert. When I met Lorna nee Wade, she was already Ed's widow. We knew she had a son Jim Clark, but my wife has never mentioned any children of her second marriage. Although she separated from her first husband, she called herself Clark-Wade. Ed took a bit of tracking down.
