This biography is a rough draft.

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."[1][2]

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...."[3]

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.[4]
