Disputed Origins: Henry Kingsbury of Ipswich and Haverhill (d. 1687) is sometimes confused as the son of James and Ann (Francis?) Kingsbury of Boxford, Suffolk, England, and/or reported a grandson of the couple by their son Thomas.

Based on his testimony in 1669,[1] Henry Kingsbury of Ipswich and Haverhill was probably born about 1615.[2] This places Henry's birth too late to have been the son of either of these fathers, James (d. 1622)[3] or Thomas (b. after 1601).[4]

For sources and reasoning about these disputed fathers, James and Thomas, please see the WikiTree G2G discussion, "Henry Kingsbury, d. 1687 (PGM), proposal to sever conflicted parents."

Henry Kingsbury of Ipswich and Haverhill (d. 1687) is one of four early Kingsbury immigrants to New England. Two of the men were brothers--John and Joseph Kingsbury of Dedham, Massachusetts. The fourth immigrant came earlier, another Henry Kingsbury. Records about the four men indicate a close relationship. All seem to have originated from the southwest part of Suffolk, England.[5]

One promising theory is that three of the men were sons of James Kingsbury of Boxford, who died in 1622, and that Henry Kingsbury of Ipswich and Haverhill was James’ grandson.

Unfortunately, as Robert Charles Anderson advised in in 2005, “the names John, James and Henry are so common in this Kingsbury family that further evidence should be sought to support this identification.”[6]

Almost fifty pages of extracted Kingsbury English records were published in 1905. Indeed the names John, James and Henry are found over and over again in the extracts.[7]
