Henry was a shepherd and grazier . He came to Australia as such and according to the shipping records he was initially engaged by Mr Manning from Sydney about whom nothing is known. He was employed with rations at the rate of £24.0.0 per year.5,6

he migrated from Gravesend, Kent to Camden, NSW arriving on 26 October 1839. He travelled to Australia with his parents on the "Florist". The ship left Gravesend on 14 Jun 1838. He was a bounty immigrant assigned to James and William MacArthur at Camden NSW.4,7 He married Martha RIDEOUT on 13 July 1847 at the Church of England in Cobbity, NSW. The marriage was witnessed by Elizabeth Hill who was a sister of her husband Henry.2,8,9

he died on 24 July 1895 at "Mt Hercules" in Razorback. The cause was Senile Decay. At the time of his death, he was living with his niece Eliza and her husband Frederick Dengate. Due to the suddenness of his death, an inquest was held at Mount Hercules. His death was reported in the local newspaper headed 'SUDDEN DEATH OF MR. HENRY TICKNER' which said “A magisterial enquiry, concerning the death of Mr Henry Tickner was held on Thursday last, the 25th ultimo [ie 25 Jul 1895]. The enquiry was conducted by Mr W C Furner, JP (coroner) of Camden, at the residence of Mr Dengate, at Mount Hercules, Razorback. The deceased retired to his bed on the evening of the 23rd ultimo apparently in his usual health, simply complaining of the extreme cold. At about 7 o'clock on the 24th, Mrs Tickner endeavoured to arouse her husband but with no avail and summoned the assistance of her son who was in the room adjoining. Life was however extinct. From appearances the deceased had only just died. No doctor had been attending the late Mr Tickner for some time past. The result of the enquiry shows that the deceased died from natural causes”.1,2,4,10,11 He was buried on 26 July 1895 in an unmarked grave in the Wesleyan section of the cemetery in Cawdor, NSW.2,4,10
