- Marriage: Mary Thomas on 23 Jan 1760 in Doddinghurst
- Died: 1810 aged about 75
I do not know much about the early Lagden entries for Doddinghurst or elsewhere. The birth date for Henry probably comes from the IGI, which is notorious for being incorrect.
Mary Thomas, his wife, was a minor when she married Henry. Her father Richard was at the marriage and gave consent. Ths is listed in the parish records of Doddinghurst.
There is an entry in the IGI of a Mary Thomas, born in 1740, in Doddinghurst to parents John Thomas and Elizabeth?? This does not match with parish records, and probably wrong.
They have various children, e.g. Mary who is born in 1760 in Doddinghurst, then the next few children are christened in South Weald; i.e. Henry in 1762, Hannah in 1764, Richard in 1765, Elizabeth in 1768, Rebecca in 1769 and Susannah in 1771. Later by 1779, Sarah is shown as born in Doddinghust.
Henry married Mary Thomas, daughter of Richard Thomas and Unknown, on 23 Jan 1760 in Doddinghurst. (Mary Thomas was born in 1740 in Doddinghurst and was christened on 9 Nov 1740 in Doddinghurst.)
