About Henry Reginald or Reynolds

Henry Reginolles / Reginald / Reynolds (? - 1636) was a teacher who ran a school in or near London. His wife's name is not known.

We know of at least two daughters: Ithamaria c. 1611, who married the mathematician John Pell; and Bathsua c. 1600, who married Richard Makin, and became known as the philosopher, scholar, writer and early feminist, Batsua Reginald Makin.

Genealogical note

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathsua_Makin:

Bathsua Makin's connection with John Pell, known as mathematician, is documented in correspondence between the two. This ... led to the tracing of a book of poetry attributed to her. Musa Virginea, published in 1616, bears a title page which, in its translation, states: “The Virgin Muse {in} Greek-Latin-French, by Bathsua R{eginald}, (daughter of Henry Reginald, school master and language lover, near London), published in her sixteenth year of age.”

While Makin’s book of poetry names Henry Reginald as her father, scholars have difficulty pinpointing exactly who he was since there were several men by the name of Henry Reginald, or variants of Reginald, living around London in the early 17th-century. He was a school-master though ... and likely taught at a school outside of London.
