    Wade, Joseph Augustine (male) 1801 - 07/15/1845 Irish

    Primarily a composer; migrated to London in 1821; wrote operas and oratorios; contributed to Bentley's Miscellany, the Athenaeum, and the Illustrated London News. Year of birth is problematic. ODNB argues for 1800/01 on the basis of age given on death certificate. This, however, is unreliable evidence, provided to the registrar at the time of the death. When his widow applied for RLF assistance 3 months later, she filled in his date of death and her date of birth but not his date of birth or age at death (case 777). See ODNB.
