Edward was born on 21 July 1862 birth registered in Islington London.
He married Jane Isabella McGregor in Queensland in 1885 (Died 1903)
He married Hannah Jane Milner in 1904
He died in 1914 in Queensland.
It would be good to know when he sailed to Australia. The rest of the Family stayed in London. So I guess that it was not long before his marriage that he arrived as he will only have been 23 when he married.
The children I have are:
Alfred Joseph Slade 1886
Margaret Buchan Slade 1887 (Died 1887)
Unnamed Slade 1889 (Died 1887)
Jane Isabella Slade 1891
Henry Arthur Slade 1893 (Died 5 May 1915 WW1 Gallipoli)
Alice Ann Slade 1897
Edith Dorothy Slade Born 1898
I have copies of Henry's and Alfred's service record from WW1.
Any further information would be good.

I have had a look and cant find anything on him. You know he was here in QLD from the marriages but maybe he come in to Australia through NSW.
Have you searched the passenger lists for QLD and NSW? If not the links are below and i will keep looking and see if i can find something on him.
Ok Edward, im cutting a long story short here I couldnt find anything on your fella so i looked up his sons army records and found they were in Cairns QLD
I then googled Cairns cemeteries and this copped up. It still dont tell you when he got here but it has burials of a Edward Slade, possible him and some of his family. Now i know they were in Cairns i will have a bit more of a dig around and see what comes up.
I cant find him on a passenger list. He possibly could have arrived in Cairns[?] maybe email the link below and see if they have any record of him arriving or the QLd archives maybe able to help as well.
