The Otago Daily Times of 4 August 1904, p.4. THE TURF, refers to an Alderman I. OLDBURY as Mayor of Wednesday.

Scroll down two-thirds of the page to the section of print offset to the right. ::)

Just found some divorce papers dated 1908, and from the way I read them Isaiah says ( through his solicitors in London ) he was in NZ at the time of the adultery and still is  .

Are you viewing the Divorce file available on ancestry ?
[The Decree Absolute was handed down on 7 February 1910    I couldn't see (though I only skimmed over it), any mention of Mr OLDBURY beyond 1909 ??     It seems possible that probably changed his identity following all the publicity ?? ]

I think you will find the Basil OLDBURY in the school record was Basil I'ANSON, aged 5 in 1901 census, with William and Christina at the Talbot Hotel in Wednesbury,

Basil I'ANSON and his two siblings are named in the Divorce record (@ ancestry).

Seems OLDBURY had a son also named Isaiah (bc 1878) ... and somewhere in the publicity surrounding the I'ANSON divorce, there is mention made of OLDBURY senior having handed over his business interests to a son, before he made the trip to South Africa and later came on to NZ.

Hmm.   http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/search/

In WWI in Australia, a Basil Whitfield Leonard Maydwell, born Exmouth, signed up in Victoria in late 1914
His mother (address "Sea Lake" according to a note giving her consent to him signing up) was Christina Maydwell.

By age he was about right to be Basil I'Anson/Oldbury.  (registered as Basil William L I'Anson, so kept the middle initials at least the same?)

There was also an Ian Christian Maydwell, born Stockton, aged 24 years 8 months in November 1915, who gives his mother as C. Maydwell (same address).   This would seem to fit with William Christian I'Anson, born 1890 in Stockton.

Aha!
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/71776680?searchTerm=%22Ian%20Christian%20Maydwell%22&searchLimits=
Anthony Atkinson I'Anson aka Anthony Atkinson Maydwell passed away (1956/7), intestate to be granted to Ian Christian I'Anson aka Ian Christian Maydwell.

Perhaps someone can find Isiah under "Maydwell"?
