The Examiner (Launceston, Tasmania) Monday, 8 Mar 1920

  Does A husband's preference For golf instead of his wife constitute a legal cruelty ?   It was one of the pleas put forward by Mrs. Madelina Violet Hadden, a daughter of Colonel Galloway, of Leamington, who saught a judicial seperation from her husband, Mr. Harvey Hadden of Half Moon-street, London, on the ground of cruelty.   Mr. Hadden, who was said to have an income of £10,000 a year, denied the charges.   Mrs. Hadden said that while they were staying a Budleigh Salterton her husband was absent from her a good deal.   "He was away all day golfing," she added.   Mr. Justice Shearman - That raises a serious question whether continues absence on the golf course amounts to legal cruelty.   Mr. Holman Gregory, K.C. M.P., who appeared for the husband - If so, I am afraid some lawyers are bad husbands.   The Judge - I know the golf course at Budleigh Salterton, and it has consiserable attractions.
         From The History of Vancouver, British Columbia
  A man whose name in Vancouver was associated with building for many years, Harvey Hadden, died in London, England February, 1931.   He was 79.   A wealthy Englishman (he was a Nottingham textile merchant, big in hosiery), born in Nottingham September 29, 1851, Hadden first visited Vancouver in 1891, became a major property owner here before 1913.   He was said to have made more than $1 million on his real estate holdings.   He owned the Birks site, then at the northeast corner of Hastings and Granville.   He once bought 160 acres in Capilano Canyon, sight unseen, from architect S.M. Eveleigh.   He built Hadden Hall there in 1903, "a sort of Garden of Eden in the forest," with attractive gardens with piped-in water for fountains and pools.   He sold the property in 1926; it is now Capilano Golf and Country Club.   Hadden Park at Kitsilano Beach, popular today as an "off-leash" park for dog owners, is on land purchased by Hadden from the CPR (in either 1928 or 1929) and donated to the city.   In his will, he bequeathed $500,000 to Vancouver parks.   In 1957, parks at Georgia, Adanac, Woodland and McLean were purchased with his bequest.   Hadden is well remembered in Nottingham. There is a stadium named for him there.
