Family notes


While some claim Henry Way was baptized 10 DEC 1576 in Allington, Bridport, Dorsetshire, England, his age at death translates to a 1583 birth. According to David Greene, he was the son of Henry and Elizabeth (Denslow) Way.[1]

There are conflicting records regarding Henry’s Marriages but it is clear that he probably married twice in England, in 1606 and 1614-15. The dates of the children’s births show a marriage before 1614-15. Daughter Elizabeth was born in 1608. His children were all born in Dorchester.[2]
