Biography

Henry was born about 1835. He was baptised on 18 October 1835, in Bramshaw, Wiltshire.[1] He was the son of Joseph Prince and Elizabeth.

He married Sarah Jane Elson in Canada West (present-day Ontario), probably in the late 1850s (based on the birth of their first child). They had 10 children together: Mary Elizabeth, John Henry, Sarah Jane, Harriet Ann, Ida Elizabeth, Robert James Edward, William Edward, Alice Matilda, Isabella, and Joseph Samuel.

Sarah Jane died in London, Ontario, on 5 November 1881, nine days after giving birth to their last child.[2] The cause of death was listed as heart disease that had lasted ten days. The informant was listed as William Prince, probably referring to their ten year old son.

On 24 April 1884, in Lambeth, Ontario, Henry married an Irish woman named Eliza Hodson.[3] She was a widow. They do not appear to have had any children together.

Henry died in London, Ontario, on 27 January 1915.[4] He was buried with Sarah Jane in St George's Cemetery in Hyde Park, London Township, Ontario.[5]
