Descendants of John Henry William Shade
SHADE FAMILY TREE POSTER (A4)
Print the family tree poster from this file
Elderly relatives have claimed that John
Henry William Shade was of German descent and that the
name might have originally been Schade. Providing further
evidence of his nationality, the Victorian Police Gazette
of Nov 3, 1864 contained an advertisement requesting
information in respect of the same Henry Shade who had
left his family in about 1855 and was last seen in
Sydney; this specified that he was "a German, but
speaks English well". It is officially documented
that he was born about 1816 at Cape of Good Hope, South
Africa. There is known to have been immigration to South
Africa from Germany prior to this. (He made his way to
New Zealand, then to Australia, going to Tasmania,
finally settling in Victoria before leaving a family and
disappearing from the records.)
