General Court.
Sometime around 1672, Henry and his wife, Jane moved to Hull, where their sons, Henry and William had settled nearly twenty
years before. Hull was a distance of some two or three miles across the "Broad Bay" from Hingham.
Henry Jr. and his brother William both succumbied to smallpox in 1678. Their mother, Jane, died shortly thereafter but there is
no record as to how she died.
There are at least two reminders of Henry's sojurn in Hingham; Chamberlin's Run, a small brook flowing into the Wier River, near Rocky Hill, and Chamberlin's Swamp beyond Rocky Hill. In addition to Henry and William, Henry Sr. and Jane were the parents of Susanna, John, Urusula and Faith.
