According to Plowdon Stevens, Henry was born at Stonington, Connecticut, on 20 November 1681 and baptized in the Congregational Church there on 18 February 1693.[1] The 2009 Gallup Genealogy states that he was baptized at Stonington (New London County), Connecticut on 18 February 1691/2 (modern-style date is 18 February 1692).[2]

He settled in Plainfield, Connecticut, and was married to Elizabeth Fellows in Plainfield on 2 March 1708/9.[3] By 1715 he had returned to Stonington. On 5 February 1721/2 he was one of the inhabitants of the North Society of Stonington who obtained permission from the Governor and Council of Connecticut to build their Meeting House at the Gravel Nole. His wife Elizabeth was admitted to the North Stonington Church on 16 June 1741. [4]

Henry died after 16 January 1749/50, when he gave a deed of land to his daughter Elizabeth Stewart.[5][6]
