January 4, 1914
The death occurred at Blackburn last night of Mr. Thomas Chadwick, one of the veteran tradesmen of the town and father of a family which has distinguished itself in Association football.
One of his five sons is Edgar Chadwick, the famous international who played for Blackburn Rovers, Darwen, Everton, Southampton, and other clubs; another is Alfred Chadwick, who played for Liverpool and Everton; and the third son, Walter Chadwick, is well-known as a League referee.
The father took a great interest in football, and was very proud of the distinction which his sons had attained in their sport.
