    HENRYSON, JOHN, Springfield 1661, had there by w. Martha, d. Elizabeth b.
1663; rem. to Haddam, there, or at Hartford, d. after some yrs. He had other
ds. Mary, Miriam, and Sarah; only s. James who liv. at Hartford, but his
progeny liv. up the riv. In two or three variations the fam. name has been
spelt; and that of the last impression is Henderson.

    HENSHAW, HINSHAW or HINSHEW, DANIEL, Milton. He was sent
to our country with his br. in their youth, says a doubtful tradit. was first of
Dorchester, m. Mary, wid. of Nicholas Allen, wh. had been wid. of Robert Pond,
had Daniel, wh. d. unm. His w. d. 19 Nov. 1719, in 83d yr. JOSHUA,
Dorchester, br. of Daniel, 1670, by w. Elizabeth d. of William Sumner, had
William, b. 2 Mar. 1672; Joshua; Elizabeth 25 July 1675, d. in few days; Thankful,
4 Mar. 1677; John, 29 May 1697; Samuel, 1 Apr. 1682; Elizabeth again, 18 July
1684; and Catharine, 28 May 1687. The w. and seven ch. abov. are name in his
will of 3 Apr. 1688, "being to undertake a voyage to Eng." but the instr. was
not pro. bef. 9 Mar. 1723-4. In Geneal. Reg. is ano. ch. Exercise, b. 15 Dec.
1693, but this may be error. JOSHUA, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 1700, Mary
, had Daniel, b. 1701; and Joshua 1703.

    HENSHER or HEINSHER, THOMAS, Woburn, m. 24 Sept. 1677. Hannah, d.
of Moses Cleaveland, had Elizabeth b. 30 July 1678; Thomas, 17 Nov. 1680; Hannah, 21

and Josiah, 1 Mar. 1695; and d. 16 Jan. 1700, when the rec. spells Henshaw.

Charlestown 1635, leather-dresser, freem. 25 May 1636, had w. Hannah, and d.
9 Feb. 1666. In his will of 27 Aug. preced. names s. Ludkin, and Waite, who prob.
had m. his ds. and ch. Richard, John, and Abigail, but perhaps this last was
also Sarah, Sally, and Rebecca.

    HERBERT, HENRY, Charlestown, d. 22 Oct. 1677; he had first w. Elinor
Miller, prob. wid. of Richard, and next m. 9 June 1668, Elizabeth wid. of John
George; and she d. 23 July 1691, aged a. 70. JOHN, Salem 1637, the shoemaker
from Northampton, Eng. wh. prob. came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 23, and had
w. Mary, wh. was of the ch. there, tho. he was not, and therefore I conclude
he was not, as Farmer thought, the freem. of 1641, yet in right of his w. he
had Mary, bapt. 29 Mar. 1640; and John, 15 Oct. 1643; and we easily accept the
assertion of Farmer, that he went to Southold, L. I. tho. prob. he went after
1668, when he petition. against imposts. JOHN, Boston, had Elizabeth bapt. 7 Sept.
1679; and John, 31 Jan. 1686, wh. d. early next yr. JOHN, Salem, perhaps s.
of the preced. m. 15 Apr. 1672, Mary Follett, had John, b.. 7 Aug. 1674. JOHN,
Reading, was capt. m. 15 Oct. 1684. Elizabeth wid. of Nathaniel Graves, d. of Hon.
