Harry Fookes Westbrook may have been born on 4 November 1826 at Elizabeth Street, in Hobart. However, it is extremely unlikely as his family did not arrive in Tasmania until 1829 and he is not listed on the immigration records. It is much more likely that he was born about 10 years later, the last child of his parents..2 He was born in 1837 at Hobart.1 He was the son of Dr. Samuel Westbrook and Mary Margaret Mason.1

His father died 2 March 1866 at the age of 70.

Harry Fookes Westbrook married Sarah Ann Pearce in 1869 at Campbell Town, Tasmania.1

"Going in for squatting, Mr. Westbrook became manager of Parker's station at Cressy, and later was made overseer on William Grubb's run."2 Harry Fookes Westbrook moved to Melbourne in 1911.2

Harry died in 1930 at the Melbourne suburb of Murumbeena.1
