    Notes 
    • Samuel sailed from England with his mother and other family members on the "Waterloo" in 1840. The family landed in Adelaide although Samuel remained only two years before sailing to Tasmania on the "Waterwitch". He arrived in Hobart on 10 No v 1842.

      It is interesting that about this time Samuel added an "e" to his surname and became known as "Fookes". He made a "Declaration of Identity" on July 17th 1890 in which he disclosed this fact.
      Samuel FOOKES preached at Jerusalem (now Colebrook), Richmond, Impression Bay (now Premaydena), Stanley, Windermere, Perth returning to Richmond before retiring. (DLR Nov 1991).

      Samuel FOOKES was buried at Queenborough Cemetery. The cemetery has since been converted to Schoolgrounds for the Hutchins School. Some headstones were preserved and erected in a little park in Peel Street, Sandy Bay. The headstone of Samuel FOOK ES, his second wife Louisa Jean HOBKIRK and others of his second family are amongst those preserved in
      the Peel Street site. The headstone of the WESTBROOK family, including Samuel WESTBROOK is preserved in the same park. (DLR Jun 1992)
