|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.
