Willard's birth is recorded in the records of Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, as follows: "henary Sonne of mair simon willard & mary his wife borne ye 4h June, 1655."
He married twice. When Henry contracted to marry Mary Lakin, his father gave him one quarter of the farm at "Nonacoaicas." "Whereas, upon a contract between my son Henry Willard and Mary Lakin, daughter of sergeant Jno. Lakin, both of Groton, I thought it meet to settle something upon him for his outward subsistence...."
Henry married Dorcas Cutler at Lancaster in 1689. Anderson does not give a maiden name for Dorcas, stating that only secondary sources identify Dorcas as a Cutler and that there is no evidence for this identification.
