Parents: Harriet Thake Whiting, father unknown. (1)
Born: 1st October 1850 in Union House, Haverhill.(1,2)

Bio: On the 1851 census, Henry is living with his mother and grandmother Sarah Whiting (Farecloth) in Burton End, Haverhill. They also have a visitor, Thomas Jobson. By 1861, his mother Harriet is dead and Henry is now a boarder with Harriet's Aunt Susannah who is living with her husband Edward Ship in Haverhill Hamlet. His brother Thomas is living with them also. Henry is working as an agricultural labourer. After this, Henry seems to disappear. I have been unable to trace his whereabouts on the next census, or on any marriage or death registers.
