Hi again Carol,

Yes I did start this enquiry on another forum and a couple of people replied that they thought there was a resemblance, one suggested that I put it on this "old photographs" page.

To the more general query I did get some replies, a couple of them extremely valuable, which led me to where I am right now with the research.  Other replies confirmed what we had already discovered, which is very encouraging. I have been working on it since January.  I have been amazed how quickly people on RootsChat reply and how keen they are to help!

Sue.

Unfortunately Henry Edward Brookes wont appear on the 1841 to find his pob;

BROOKES Henry Edward arrived 1840-07-07 on Fairlie from London 40-04-04
BROOKES Henry Edward, Selina MUGG married 1843-12-26 at St John, Ade, aged adult, minor
Gosh 9 children to them.

There are a few other Brooks/Brookes also around the same time, some married females.

As Henry/Selina name a Son Frederick and a Daug Frederica this one caught my eye.

BROOKES / BROOKS Frederick arrived 1848-11-10 on Bussorah Merchant from London via Plymouth

All info on South Australian Pioneers site.

Sorry if you already have this.

Trish :)

Thank you Trish. Yes, this information is all correct, the only part I am not sure of is the Frederick who arrived on the Bussorah Merchant, I will follow it up.

Re Henry's pob, according to his South Australian Death Certificate it was Bath in Somerset.

I cant find anything in Bath, Somerset but there is this;

Coincidentally there is a Mary BROOKES/James DAVIES Marriage 25 May 1824, St Swithin, Walcot, Somerset.

I think you have it right there Trish, as Mary Davis/Brookes was born in Wales in c.1801.

That's a great find as the info for Henry Edward's mother's name matches Sue's tree  :D
