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
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 URABILLA TRAGEDY.
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.
Many thanks, Cindy Williams Lesure
Thanks for your message and the offer, but I'm not connected with the family in any way.
Have a good week.
I see Jane is his second wife, but yes I think you are right. I now have his death in 1894.
