I have heard previously of Safari-based jailbreaks available for the iPad. Is this true? If so, are we likely to see anything of the like for the ios6.1 Jailbreak??

Kind regards, Richard. :-)

You were reading stories about the iPad 2's first jailbreak being possible via a website (JailbreakMe). That was for iOS 4.3.3, sadly those days are long gone and a computer is needed.

No. There will not be a web based jailbreak for 6.1. evasi0n only for now, although redsn0w and sn0wbreeze will likely be updated to work too.

My brother in law seemed to think he stumbled across a safari based jailbreak tool on his iPad some months ago now and I was under the impression the iPad could be jail broken in this manner previously. If so what tool was it linked to??

JailbreakMe. See my answer.
