History & Achievements :
Henry Johnson born in Kent c 1813 and married 18th Feb 1833 in Norwich, Norfolk. He was a trumpeter with the 7th Hussars at the time. 8th May 1843 he transferred to the Grenadier Guards and discharged 30th September 1846. I believe he then became bandmaster of the 40th Regiment. In May 1856 he celebrated his tenth anniversary as bandmaster to the 40th Regiment and it was reported in the Melbourne papers. I believe he left the regiment about the time they went to NZ. Post Office Directories for 1863-1864 list him as a Professor of Music living in Wellington Parade, East Melbourne. He died 10 June 1895.
