Isaiah Gadd originally from Gloucestershire was a coal merchant in the the late 1800’s. He moved to Wokingham, Berkshire and purchased Watts & Cook in 1882 renaming the firm Isaiah Gadd & Co. The business flourished at its premises in Station Road until the firm ceased trading in 1915 after Isaiah’s death two years previously. In 1888 Gadd ordered two 8 ton wagons from the Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Co one of which was no. 29 modelled here. Over the next 17 years he bought two more 8 ton wagons in 1889, three 10 ton wagons with a different livery in 1897 and finally in 1906 three more 10 ton wagons again with a different livery. In 1910 Gadd went to a different wagon builder, Hurst, Nelson and bought a 6 plank wagon. This wagon saw a change from Gadds normal black with white lettering liveries to a grey body with white lettering and black shading. ERA: 2
