Hi Carol and Trish!  Yes, I am convinced that the boy baptised as Henry Edward Brookes in Abergavenny in 1821 is our Henry. This is the first thing I found when I started. I have no actual evidence that it is him, but we know his mother's  name was Mary. Other evidence suggests that his actual DOB was 3 Jul 1820.  His mother eventually came to South Australia in 1857, at that stage she was known as Mary Hidden, so she may have married a Mr. Hidden in the UK between 1821 and 1856, but I have not found any such record. When she was married here in 1864, she gave her father's name as Thomas Davis. It seems likely that the name Brookes was an assumed name.  There are a huge number of Thomas and Mary Davises of course.  I would be very pleased if Thomas Davis turned out to be the same Thomas Davis who was the great uncle of Charles Michael  Davis, born in Usk near Abergavenny. Charles Michael  married Henry Edward Brookes' daughter Frederica Alma in Adelaide in 1880.

I have seen the marriage of Mary Brookes in Somerset in 1824, one record says James Davies and the other one says Davis.  Davis/Davies seem to have been interchangeable back then.
Interestingly the Davis family in the Usk/Abergavenny area had strong connections with Bath.  This could be our Mary but it probably does not shed any light on the identity of Henry's actual father.

...and with more contrast if you prefer. It looks like he may have Pince Nez hung around his neck and tucked into his top pocket.

Thank you Carol, that's great!  I will forward it to my cousin, David, who is Henry's great great grandson. He will be very pleased.

Yes I agree about the chain, I would not have noticed it if you hadn't mentioned it!  You obviously have a trained eye!

My pleasure Sue....It was Jim on here who taught me to look into a photo rather than look At it...wise words. You do notice more detail when you are restoring a photo though  :D
