Tasmanian Archives has this person as "Francis Brooker" on the ‘Chapman’, arriving 27 July 1824 in van Dieman’s Land (Tasmania). There is also a note on his records that his correct name is in fact "Booker". Francis was a married man when charged with housebreaking. His wife lived with his mother Mary Booker, who took in needlework, in Surrey.
A note is recorded 28/4/1830 he received a pardon of harbouring Elizabeth Appleyard, a convict illegally at large - he was fined.
Final record - Francis was murdered by the Aborigines. It does not give a date.
