Biography

Harry's birth is registered at Sydney to parents John and Mary Ann SWEENEY.[1]

By 1906 Harry is living at 5 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy in Melbourne, listed as an actor. He marries Winifred Agnes QUINN that same year, also in Melbourne.[2][3]

In 1918, Harry and Winifred travelled to San Francisco, via Hawaii. Winifred is also listed as an actress on the ships manifest. It is understood son John William MOWBRAY was born in 1913 but he is not listed as travelling with them, perhaps small children were not listed.[4] Johns birth date in the 1925 census indicates it was in 1922, so this could explain why he is not with them when they emigrated.[5]

By 1925 the family is living in New York and later Hollywood. By this time Harry has taken the stage name of Henry MOWBRAY and was quite successful having a quite varied stage and film career, having appeared in over 30 Hollywood films. He appeared in films with stars such as Mae West, Ronald Coleman, Bela Lugosi and Fred Astaire.

Harry applied for American Citizenship in 1949 when living in Los Angeles.[6]

He died on 9th Jul 1960 at Los Angeles, California, aged 77.[7]
