Wade, Thomas

(1805-1875)
   Born at Woodbridge, Suffolk, he came to London, but when is uncertain. His plays give a clue: Woman's Love, or the Triumph of Patience, later Duke Andrea, 1828 (performed at Covent Garden); The Phrenologists, 1830 (a farce); The Jew of Arragon: or the Hebrew Queen, 1830 (a verse tragedy). He was a frequent contributor of poetry to the Monthly Repository, and his contributions were among those that appeared in Mundi et Cordis Carmina (or Songs of the Universe and of the Heart) in 1837. He lived on Jersey, the Channel Island, for many years, where he ran the British Press, and where he died. He wrote a series of sonnets inspired by his wife, Lucy Eager, a musician. Some of his poetry publications: Tasso and the Sisters, 1825. The Shadow Seeker, 1837. Prothanasia, 1839. Dante's Inferno, 1845. Monologue of Konrad, 1845 (in the Illuminated Magazine). Poems, 1895. Some of his poems: "Corfe Castle Ruins," "On a Human Heart," "Shelley," "The Nest," "The Nuptials of Juno," "The True Martyr," "The Winter Shore," "To Three Skulls."
