Henry Gilbert White1

M, b. 13 August 1837, d. 9 April 1930

Henry Gilbert White 1837-1930. Photo thanks to High Country News.
  • Henry Gilbert White was born on 13 August 1837 in Henton, Wookey, Somerset, England. He was the son of William Blessley WHITE and Ann SPENCER.1,2,3,4
  • He was the son of William Blessley White and Ann Spencer.5
  • Henry Gilbert White and Mary Ann White immigrated to Sydney, New South Wales, on 1 August 1855. They travelled on the Lloyds from London. Henry was 18 years old and Mary Ann 24. She was from Henton, Somerset and he was from Caistdon, Mitchire?. According to immigration details Mary Ann was a "Nurse of Lunatic Asylum, housemaid or needlewoman"
    After travelling to Queensland on the Boomerang and then the Hawk to Ipswich, Henry was contracted for two years to Westbrook Station. He then tried his luck at the Talgai gold diggings before working as a carrier operating his bullock team between Ipswich and Roma. He farmed at Drayton, where he had establised his depot of his hauling business for a time before settling at Henton Brook (Portion 1918, Parish of Goombungee, 1280 acres.)6,5,7,4
  • At the age of 32 years, 1 month and 21 days, Henry Gilbert White married Mary Ann Underwood on 4 October 1869 in Lagoon Station, Queensland.1,8,4
  • In 1876 when land was thrown open for selection in the Haden District, then known as "Little Gormorn", Henry selected 1280 acres, portion 1918, in the Parish of Goombungee. The purchase price was 2/6 per acre and payable over five years at 6d. per acre each year. Specific improvements also had to be made over that 5 years. With the help of Mary Ann's brother in laws, Joseph Millard and Robert Cavanagh Henry built a two roomed house of hand trimmed timber with a bark roof. When the house was finished Mary Ann and their three small children Charles, Annie and Sarah moved from Drayton where they had been staying. Amy, their fourth child was the first white child to be born in the district. Four more were born in the following years - George, Ada, Sidney and Gilbert.
    Henry named to property "Henton" after his birthplace in England. The Hentonbrook Post Office was established there some years later, mail being delivered by contactors to and from Meringandan until the railway was connected to Haden (then Wahoon). Members of the local aborigine tribes often came to the homestead looking for food and tobacco and during nut season at the Bunya Mountains many other tribes passed through.
    While clearing and developing his land, Henry sold butter, cheese and home cured bacon in Toowoomba and Dalby. He was one of the first in the district to do so, and stored his produce in a cellar dug into the side of a hill. After some years a new home replaced the original two bedroom hut. Grapes for wine making and wheat and barley were also grown on the property. He also had a herd of shorthorn cattle and eight hundred sheep.
    Henry donated five acres of his land for the building of a school at Doctor's Creek. He also donated the land, around 1923, on which the present St John's church stands today.9
