Shackerstone is a village and civil parish in the Hinckley and Bosworth district of Leicestershire, England. It is situated on the Ashby-de-la-Zouch Canal and the River Sence.

In the Elizabethan era the Hall family were prominent in the village. They occupied the hall next to the church, known as Shakerstone Mannor.

On 9/2/1790 he was baptised at Yarmouth, Norfolk. Online Bishop's Transcripts have the surname as Hale but list his parents as Henry Edward Hale and Anne Lumley.

In 1815 he married his wife at Saint Michael, Coventry, Warwick, England. She was possibly his second cousin. His father and her mother were cousins.

In May 1827 when his children were christened the family were living in Walcott Place, Lambeth and his occupation was Gent.

Henry arrived in the Swan River Colony in February 1830 with his wife and six children aboard the vessel Protector. His age was listed as 38. He also brought servants and various tradespeople.

By 1831 he was living in Fremantle.

In June 1832 he took up a land grant totalling 16,720 acres; 16,394 acres were situated four miles south of the mouth of the Harvey River; 200 acres on the western bank of the inlet opposite ‘Peeltown’ and the remainder being small blocks in Fremantle. He took with him eight staff to start building, fencing, roadmaking and clearing and cultivating the land. His wife, Sarah, remained in Fremantle.

By 1835 he was living in Mandurah on a 200 acre property that we now know as Halls Head.

His father died in 1841 and in 1843 he sold Shackerstone Manor in Leicestershire.

In 1846 his eldest daughter's marriage notice identifies him as "Surgeon of Leicester" and his father as "Captain Hall late of the First Dragoon Guards".

The 1st King's Dragoon Guards were formed in 1758 and served as Horse Cavalry.

Cemetery records indicate he came from Shackerton (most likely a typo and should be Shackerstone) in England.

He died at the Pier Hotel in Perth age 70 after a lingering illness.

His son Frank's death notice refers to his father as Dr Hall.

He is buried in East Perth Cemetery. Cemetery records have his name as Henry Edward.

He was known as a merchant, farmer, medical practioner and hotel proprietor.
