About Henry Halstead

notes

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~halstead/d1.html

Henry had come to America as a child in 1635. His family arrived in Concord, Massachusetts as members of the Bay Colony Company. Henry Returned to England after his brothers death in 1645. Henry Halstead visited his uncle James at Sowerbyridge, Halifax Parish, near Lancashire while back in England after his father's death in the Colonies and before he returned to the Colonies. Henry came to Elizabeth City County, Virginia with six others with Captain Christopher Burroughs on November 7, 1651. Christopher Burroughs was given a grant of land dated 15 Aug 1651 by the Governor of Virginia for two hundred forty acres of land. This "Head-Right", used to stimulate immigration, was for bringing Henry Holstead and others to the colony. Henry was about 25 years old when he came to the colony putting him born about 1626. Henry was a freeman so he apparently had the money to pay for his passage. Since no head-right was claimed for a wife, it is presumed that he married a local girl named Bridget.
