Herbert Edward Dadswell's story

Herbert Edward Dadswell, the fourth of the eight children of Charles and Hannah (Richardson) Dadswell of Sydney, was born on 25 May 1875.

He attended Newington College and joined the Sydney Morning Herald as a junior clerk in 1890. In 1901 at Newtown, he married May Walton, daughter of Roland Robert and Rebecca (Kinder) Walton. May was born in West Gorton, Lancashire, England, in 1880 and as a child sailed to Australia aboard the Gulf of Mexico in 1885, along with her parents and five siblings. Herbert and May Dadswell had one child, Herbert Eric Dadswell, born in Sydney on 5 March 1903.

When the Herald's publisher, John Fairfax and Sons, was registered as a company in 1916, Herbert Edward Dadswell became its secretary and two years later also became its chief accountant.

His wife May died in 1919 and two years later Herbert Edward Dadswell (by then 46) married Linda Isabel Quinton, his secretary at the Herald. Linda was born at Ashfield, NSW in 1895 and thus was 26 at the time of the marriage. She was the daughter of Alice Maud Quinton.

For many years, Herbert Edward Dadswell and his wife Linda lived in Enmore. He was prominent in Newtown Congregational Church and in 1944 he retired from the newspaper business after 54 years with the John Fairfax and Sons company. He died in Sydney on 5 March 1968 when aged 92.
