Henry Rhodes, son of Walter Rhodes, immigrated from England prior to 1637. He married ELIZABETH WHITE around 1639 in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Henry was a Lieutenant in the Provincial Forces in Lynn in 1637, and served against the Indians in the Narraganset War in 1657. He was a farmer and an iron worker in Lynn, Mass, and served as a representative for Lynn at the General Court in 1657.

In 1679, he stated in a deposition that he was 71 years of age, and in 1701, he gave gifts of land to his sons. According to Lynn vital records, he died in 1703.

His family line can be traced back 600 years to Willemus de Rode born 1040 in Normany France. It is said that he brought his coat of arms and a copy of the original charter with him to the colonies. The inscription on the charter: "There are the ancient name of the family of Rodes of Adrod, Cheshire. Whereof James Rhodes of Lancashire is descended of the second House. Henry Rodes, son of George."
