Arthur Ebenezer FORSAITH

(1867 - 1952)
Father*Thomas FORSAITH b. 1846, d. 1902
Mother*Ada Mary HALL b. 1845, d. 1932
Arthur Ebenezer FORSAITH was born at Laura in Adelaide, South Australia, on 17 September 1867. Arthur was probably born before Thomas and Ada were married - his claimed birth year of 1868 does not agree with records.
The Sth Australian Birth index shows an Arthur James, son of Ada Mary Hall, father unknown, born 17/9/1867. Note, however, that in his 1906 New Zealand marriage he claimed to have been born in Melbourne, and for his 1908 marriage in Victoria, he gave a birthplace of Dunedin.1 He was baptised in Balmain, Sydney, New South Wales, on 1 October 1868.2

He married Agnes MAUD at the residence of Mr Cooper in Glenelg, Adelaide, South Australia, on 21 September 1897.3,4

Arthur's second marriage was to Hilda May Mildred CASE, daughter of Joshua CASE and Sarah A MASTERS, on 24 April 1906 in Auckland, Auckland.5

Arthur's third marriage was to Charlotte Isabella HUMPHREY on 21 September 1908 in Collingwood, Melbourne, Victoria. This marriage certificate gives false details - Arthur claims to be born in Dunedin, his mother's maiden name is incorrect, but 2 stillborn sons are claimed. This appears to be his second bigamous marriage, and his daughter by Hilda Case in New Zealand is still to be born.6

Arthur was divorced from Agnes MAUD at Perth, Western Australia, on 19 August 1912.7,8

He registered a distribution and importing agency, the Commonwealth Speciality Sales Co, on 26 June 1915 at 77-79 Elizabeth St, Sydney - it is unclear what this company did or how long it existed.9

He was widowed at age 74 on the death of his wife Charlotte on 10 July 1942.10,11

Arthur died on 18 September 1952 in Prahran, Melbourne, Victoria, at age 85.12 He was cremated on 19 September 1952 at the Springvale Botanical Cemetery in Springvale.13
