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. Although this marriage is documented on their daughter's birth certificate, it does not appear in the NZ Marriage indexes. If it did occur, it would be bigamous, as Arthur was still married to Agnes; also, Arthur claims to have been born in Melbourne!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.
The proceedings, as reported in the West Australian newspaper, make interesting reading:
"THE STRONGEST PROOF. A MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE. INTERESTING PETITION IN DIVORCE. "AN UNUSUAL TRADE INQUIRY."
In the light of events which were exposed in the Divorce Court yesterday, Mrs. Agnes Forsaith apparently did well to preserve her marriage certificate, for that document has proved to be a substantial factor in clearing up what had appeared to Mr. Justice MacMillan to be a difficult point, and in releasing her from her marriage with Arthur Ebenezer Forsaith, formerly of Perth, on the ground of the latter's desertion. The case was one of many which have been before the Divorce Court recently under the new Divorce Act. When the case was before Mr. Justice MacMillan last week it was stated that respondent, with petitioner's consent, left Perth in 1905 for Adelaide for three months, on account of illness. At the end of that period he was to have returned, but since then she had not heard from him, nor had he supported her. It was stated also that respondent, since his marriage with petitioner, was about to enter into another marriage outside Western Australia, but was prevented from doing so. On the evidence then before him, however, his Honour was diffident about dealing finally with the case, and it was adjourned until yesterday morning, in order to permit of further inquiries being made. Mr. A. D. Stone appeared for petitioner. Two witnesses - Albert Kruger and O. L. Haines - yesterday supplied what might be termed the missing links in the chain of evidence. The former was able to inform the Court of the man's movements, while the latter witness related how respondent's alleged attempt to enter into a second marriage was frustrated. Albert Kruger told the Court that he knew respondent when the latter was in Perth. He (respondent) was then a printer and publisher. Witness was in Sydney at the end of April and at the beginning of May, and he then saw respondent in that city and spoke to him.
His Honour: Did he tell you anythng about himself? - No. I asked him where he was going; and he stated that he was leaving that day for Brisbane.
Did you know what his business was at that time? - No.
He did not mention his wife? - No.
Did he seem in good health? - Yes; excelllent.
O. L. Haines, the other witness, described himself as the managing director of the Trade Protection Association. He said that in 1906 he had inquiries from New Zealand, by his agent in that country, in regard to Arthur Ebenezer Forsaith. In Perth a meeting of respondent's creditors had been called under the Assignment Act, witness being trustee. He remembered perfectly the nature of the inquiry in question.
Mr. Stone: Did you reply to it? - Yes. "It was rather an unusual trade inquiry," added witness, when asked what it was that had impressed firmly on his mind the nature of the investigation. "It was stated that Forsaith was proposing marriage to the daughter of one of my agent's clients."
You forwarded to New Zealand a history of respondent while he was here? - Yes. Witness had some foolscap notes in his hand, but they were not read out.
With that letter in reply, what did you send? - A copy of his marriage certificate.
Did you hear any more about it? - No.
Mr. Stone submitted that on the evidence now before the Court, respondent, as far back as Sentember, 1906, had shown no intention whatever of returning to this State. His Honour said that on the evidence as it now stood desertion since 1906 had been proved, and a decree nisi, returnable in six months, would be granted. Petitioner was also granted the custody of her two children and costs against respondent."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

Arthur died on 18 September 1952 in Prahran, Melbourne, Victoria, at age 85.10 He was cremated on 19 September 1952 at the Springvale Botanical Cemetery in Springvale.11
