Henry Wood was born in England, sometime by 1620. His origins are unknown but evidence points to the possibility of a close relationship to John and Stephen Wood alias Atwood of Plymouth. Henry was in Plymouth by September 16, 1641 when he and Stephen Wood were granted 8 acres each at "Loute Pond." In 1643, he is listed among the Plymouth men "able to bear arms." (Note that his name appears between John Wood and Stephen Wood).
Henry married Abigail Jenney, the daughter of John and Sarah (Carey) Jenney on 18 April, 1644. In December 28, 1643 Abigail's father in his will names Henry as a suitor of his daughter, but required that she "dwell for one full year with Mr. Chas Chauncey" in order to have his consent to marry. They may have resided in Yarmouth for a time, as some sources report that their first two children were born there. [Thacher papers]
They lived in Yarmouth when his first two children (Samuel and Sarah) were born and in 1649, they returned to Plymouth where in 1665 they settled at Middleborough. Although he was not among the twenty-six original purchasers, he received the share set out for John Shaw, and part of that original homestead remained in the possession of his descendants for over 250 years. He held one share of thirty acres on the west side of the Nenasket River. Henry was admitted a freeman of Plymouth Colony in 1648; was grand juror 1648-56-59-68 and often on other juries. His son Samuel and son-in-law John Nelson were appointed administrators of his estate, October 29, 1670. Children: Samuel, Jonathan, David, John, Joseph, Benjamin, Abiel, James, Sarah, Abigail, Susanna, and Mary.

Town of Middleborough, Massachusetts
While many of the towns in the present County of Plymouth, Massachusetts, were covered by grants, the town of Middleborough was purchased from the Indians over several years in the late 17th Century. The first of these was known as the Twenty-Six Men's Purchase in 1661. Henry was not among those men though he received the share set out for John Shaw. In 1664, Henry was one of the proprietors who received land as part of the Little Lotmen's Purchase (also known as "Little Allotment Purchase"). On August 9, 1667, Henry made what has become known as "Wood's Purchase" when he bought land from Tispaquin for the consideration of four pounds. "Wood's Purchase" is in the eastern part of the Town running from what is now known as Tispaquin Pond in the south to north of what is now known as Wood's Pond.
