Not quite sure what info you are looking for but the Gloustershire Baptism Index only has one John Westbury baptised in 1824.

John Westbury baptised 11 July 1824 Eastleach Turville, parents Thomas, Labourer, and Mary.

My abject apologies - parents should have read Thomas and Anne.

Please disregard the name Mary - I haven't a clue where that came from.

Hi Trish 1120,

I am trying to trace my family - John Westbury above was my great Grandfather, who was born in Gloucestershire, England 1824.  He emigrated to Australia around 1864, can't find shipping or passenger records. John married Hannah Hoult in 1866, his son John Westbury was my grandfather was born in Tenterfield or Leeches Gully NSW around 1875 and died in Lidcombe Sydney 1936.  I am trying to trace my family roots backwards.

Wow Stephanie from Australia,
Thanks for the updates, were/how did you get the details? 

I have read an old newspaper Tenterfield Star 1955 refers to an interview of a Richard Westbury, Extracts from Reminiscences (1942) by N. Crawford Richard claimed to be John Westbury's younger brother, born around 1879/80 and that was where I started my search of their father John Westbury, who was born in Gloucestershire, England 1824.
