Notes:  Henry was born in either 1835 or 1836.  Family members recorded his birth date as 18 Jan 1836; however, Henry's death certificate shows his birth year as 1835.  His baptism date was apparently 20 Mar 1836.

Henry left England and moved to Canada in about 1854 when he was 18 years old.  He came to Scarboro with his older brother Stephen (#3).  They worked on building the Grand Trunk Railroad.  Henry moved to Bosanquet by 1859 and settled near Jura.  Henry then bought a farm (later occupied by Mr. Dale) which he afterwards sold and bought the farm across the road from R. Close in 1881, on which he resided thereafter.

Henry was an adherent of the Methodist church and was a Liberal in politics.  In the first Fenian raid in 1866, Henry went with the Thedford Company under Capt. Atkinson to the front.

Henry's parents, Stephen (#2) and Frances, lived with him before their deaths in 1873 and 1893, respectively.

Henry had a stroke in November 1908 which left him a helpless invalid.  He was diagnosed with Apoplexy, a sudden loss of consciousness and subsequent partial paralysis usually caused by a broken or blocked artery in the brain.  Three years later Henry died due to it.  He resided at Lot 12 Concession 3 at the time his death — and was either 75½ or 76½ years old.  Henry's son Stanley managed Henry's farm during those final years.
