Mary Wade History Association

  • 1983

The Mary Wade History Association (MWHA) had its inception in 1983 when family members sought to fill the gaps in the family tree. They formed the MWHA with an active committee of eight. A muster of the family was held in 1984, and after a huge amount of research, ‘Mary Wade to Us’ was published in 1986. The MWHA lapsed some time after the book was published. Due to efforts of the former convenor, Jeff Robinson, there is now a group of us, who are committed to realising Jeff’s dream and continuing the MWHA. The Family Tree has grown to over 11,000 descendants of Mary Wade. The work of the last few years has now come together in a new website: www.marywadefamily.org. The new site links 3 functions – the family tree, information on Mary Wade (the book ‘Mary Wade to Us’ is reproduced and Mary’s trial record), and a community site via Facebook.


'Mary Wade to Us: A Family History 1778 - 1986' contains a wealth of information about Mary Wade and her descendants, including family trees, stories and photos.
