Description

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sir Thomas Francis Wade, GCMG, KCB (25 August 1818 ? 31 July 1895) was a London-born British diplomat and sinologist who produced a syllabary in 1859 that was later amended, extended and converted into the Wade-Giles Romanization for Mandarin Chinese by Herbert Giles in 1892. Sir Thomas's Chinese name was Wei Tuoma. Born in London, he was the son of Major Wade of the Black Watch, by his wife Anne Smythe (daughter of William Smythe) of Barbavilla, County Westmeath, Ireland. He was educated at the Cape, in Mauritius, at Harrow and at Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1838, his father purchased for him a commission in the 81st Foot. Exchanging (1839) into the 42nd Highlanders, he served with his regiment in the Ionian Islands, devoting his leisure to the congenial study of Italian and modern Greek.
