As much info as you have would be more helpful. I don't know what you want to know?
Samuel was a son of Samuel Brooking & Elizabeth Rundle. He married Ethel Charlotte Zachan (1889-1976) in 1913. They had a son on 10 March 1918, Reginald Samuel Brooking, who was 8 months old when Samuel died on 21 Nov 1918. He is buried at Hastings. Ethel next married James Robert Shoesmith (1885-1973) in 1921. They too are at Hastings cemetery
I presume you are a descendant of Reginald and Eline 'Lee'
