Old Saybrook is now in Middlesex County, Connecticut. Lyme CT was settled about 1664 when it was originally East Saybrook. It was incorporated as the town of Lyme in 1667. Henry became a freeman on May 12, 1670 in Lyme.
Henry's second wife, Deborah Palmer, was twice previously married, in 1660 to Lewis Jones, and, about 1695, to Capt. Samuel Burwell.
Henry lived to be 98 years old, remarkable for the time.
