Civil servant; landowner and author. Educated privately and at age 17 entered Trinity College in Dublin B.A in 1839. After studying law for some months he sailed for Sydney and travelled overland to Port Phillip in 1841. He took up a run near Avoca in May 1842 and in 1844 went into partnership on a neighbouring property.
John Leslie Fitzgerald Vesey FOSTER was an Elective Member of the first Legislative Council 1843 - 1856 for the District of Port Phillip
His pastoral ventures identified him with the colony's conservative squatting element. In 1850 Foster sold his land rights and returned to Ireland. Married in Ireland in 1850 to Emily Fletcher, daughter of the Rev. J. J. Fletcher DD, of Dunran, County Wicklow, Ireland, and had issue, 1 son and 4 daughters.
In 1853 returned to Victoria and acted as an administrator for the colony. Became a target of much criticism and was a scapegoat for the Eureka goldfields.
