Rev. Henry Samuel Cox Fookes was likely born on 11 January 1848 at Richmond, Tasmania.2 He was the son of Rev. Samuel Berjew Fookes and Margaret Sarah Westbrook. Rev. Henry Samuel Cox Fookes was also known as Henry Samuel Cox Fooks.3 He presumably lived with his parents at Impression Bay (now Premaydena), Tasman Penninsula, Tasmania, in 1854.4

His mother died 11 June 1854 at the age of 31. Henry was aged 6 when this happened.5 He presumably lived with his parents at Colebrook Dale, Tasmania, in July 1861.6

On 5 July 1861 his sister Amy died at the age of 9 a day before her tenth birthday. His common name was Harry.7 Henry was employed by the Mt. Bischoff mining company. A position his son Noel said that he held for about 50 years.8,9 He moved to Waratah, Tasmania circa 1870.8

He married Jane Maria Murray, daughter of Kennedy Murray and Hannah Goodall, on Monday, 22 September 1873 at Waratah, Tasmania. He was 25 and his wife Jane was 23. This marriage between the oldest son of Reverend Samuel Fookes and the oldest daughter of prosperous farmer Kennedy Murray, both well known and respected Tasmanians, was likely to have been of contemporary social significance..13,14,15 Rev.

A 'J. Fookes' was recorded as contributing to the songs performed at a concert at Library Hall, in Richmond, Tasmania, on the evening of the Friday, 12 September 1879; the evening was judged to be one of the most enjoyable evenings in that town in years.16

An article in Devon Herald in December 1879 lamented the poor state of Anglicanism in Tasmania. It stated that although it comprised the majority of the population
they are at the same time the most illiberal or neglectful of their duties as Christians, and in every way the most apathetic of any denomination claiming to be recognised as an arniy whose mission is to wage war against the vices and immoralities of the age.



The author blamed this partially on the fact that the Church of England was supported by the state, reducing its self reliance. He mentioned how some ministers had not been paid for several months. Further "among her communicants are any earnest workers who have her true interests at heart; but the great mass are cold and indifferent, keeping back the whole price of their possessions." The article listed Rev. Henry Samuel Cox Fookes's annual salary at three hundred and ten pounds.17
