BROOKS John (located Australia)

Posted: 1397996703000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Brooks, Gay, Richards, Stain.
I am after any information of John BROOKS (a shoe/boot maker)

He was born in London in approx 1843.
His parents were Thomas Brooks (a shoemaker)
Jane Stain
I have no information on his arrival in Australia.
He was made a widower in 1888 - but I have no information of this marriage - except he had 5 living, and 6 deceased children.
He married Lillian Richards (nee Gay) in Melbourne in Nov 1898.
He died in 1915 after committing suicide.
I am particularly after any information on John before his marriage to Lillian.
Thank :)
