Henry Holbrook
[Henry Holbrook]
July 11, 1820 - May, 1902
Second mayor of the city of New Westminster, Henry Holbrook was subsequently re-elected on four other occasions.
Holbrook was elected to the first Legislative Council of the newly-formed colony of British Columbia. In 1871 he was appointed to the Executive Council as Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, which office he continued to fill up to the resignation of the administration in November 1872. Thereafter he was leader of the Opposition until his defeat at the polls in 1875.
First Worshipful Master of Union Lodge No. 1201 (899) E.C., his loyalties to the United Grand Lodge of England resulted in the lodge not joining in the establishment of the Grand Lodge of British Columbia in 1871. From the time of Union Lodge's joining the newly formed Grand Lodge in 1872 until his departure for England in 1880, Holbrook had no further contact with Freemasonry.
