N.B. Jane Yewle was originally shown on Wikitree as the wife of Edward Henry, son of Patrick Henry, but other sources state that Edward died unmarried at the age of twenty-three, most specifically, the website of "Red Hill," Patrick Henry's southside Virginia plantation. Consequently I am removing her as Edward's wife as of 27 May 2017.

"Neddy" died on 28 Oct 1794 at age 23, unmarried.



Note: Died unmarried with no issue.
Edward was born in 1771. He is the son of Patrick Henry and Sarah Shelton.[1]


"Edward (Neddy) born 1771 "Scotchtown," Hanover Co., VA, died 28 Oct 1794 at age 23 at "Winton," New Glasgow, Amherst Co., VA, the home of his aunt, Jane Henry Meredith. The name of the town New Glasgow was later changed to Clifford. He was unmarried, had just passed the bar, buried at “Winton.”[2]
