Henry married Elizabeth Moore, daughter of John Moore and his first wife, Elizabeth, in Sudbury on January 1, 1643-4. Henry was granted more land in 1645 and in 1648, Henry took the freeman's oath and was granted even more land in Sudbury. Henry was a selectman and served on a jury in 1652. Henry and Elizabeth had ten children between 1646 and 1670.

Henry, along with his father, was among the petitioners for a new town west of Sudbury in 1656. That town, Marlborough, was incorporated in 1660. Edmund settled in the new town, but Henry stayed in Sudbury. Henry's relations with the town weren't always good, in 1658, he was presented in court for operating a tavern without a license. Henry served on various committees and was again selectman from 1664 to 1668.

In 1675, King Philip's War began, and on April 21, 1676, the natives attacked and burned part of the town of Sudbury. Henry and some of his sons were members of the garrison at Sudbury. Henry himself suffered the loss of stock and buildings worth 180 Pounds during the war. In 1700, Henry and others whose land was in Sudbury, but far from the town center, petitioned to have their land included in the new town of Framingham. 

Elizabeth died in August 1705, and Henry made his will two months later. He willed all his sons land, and all his daughters money. Henry died in Framingham on February 10, 1710-11. His estate was valued at 527 Pounds, but he had already disposed of much of his land by giving it to his sons.


Henry married Elizabeth Moore. (Elizabeth Moore died on 3 Aug 1705.)
