"(II) Henry, fourth son and fifth child of John Libby, the immigrant, born in Scarborough in 1647, died October 2, 1732, aged eighty-five years. He was a man of energy and good business qualifications, and was one of the board of selectmen of Scarborough in 1686. In 1690, with Peter Hinkson and their families, he made his escape to Lynn, Massachusetts, at the time of the Indian hostilities. He was one of the company which first attempted to re-settle their possessions. Tradition says that this company made their way in a sloop from Lynn, and built a garrison on Prout's Neck, which was successfully defended against a force of five hundred French and Indians. Henry Libby and his sons were all present at the first town meeting in 1720. He and John Boden were selected to show the old highways to the selectman. In September 1728, at the age of eighty-one, he became a member of the Congregational church at Black Point, which had just been organized by Rev. William Thompson. Henry Libby married Honor Hinkson, daughter of Peter Hinkson, whose plantation joined his father's. She died August 24, 1724, aged sixty. Their children were: Mary, Samuel, Sarah, James, Hannah, Elizabeth, and John, who is the subject of the next sketch."
