About Henry Phelps, Jr.

A Henry Phelps was made freeman of the Colony 13 Mar 1639 [Phelps & Servin, 1572; Shurtleff, Records of the Governor, 1:375]; this apparently was the younger Henry who would have come of age at about this time. Nothing further is known of an elder Henry and it may be assumed that he had died before 1639, although the date and place of his death and burial are unknown.

Henry Phelps probably married a daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Batter Antrum. Elizabeth was a sister of Edmond Batter who was one of the selectmen from Salem and served two terms as deputy to the General Court. Batter and Antrum arrived in Salem in 1635 with a group of men from Wiltshire who were prominent in Salem affairs. "Mr. Batter" and his "brother Antrum" are mentioned in the Salem Town Records of 1637. "Town Records," EIHC, 9 (Jan., 1869):43. In the settlement of the estate of Obadiah Antrum, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Batter Antrum, "John Phelps, son of Hen. Phelps, kinsman," shares equally with "Hana, wife of Isaack Burnap, sister of the deceased." The testimony mentions that Obadiah's Uncle Edmond Batter had been an administrator of the estate of his father, Thomas Antrum. Dow, Probate Records of Essex, 2:13-4. It appears that Edmond Batter was uncle to Obadiah Antrum, Hannah Antrum Burnap and (----) Antrum Phelps (wife of Henry Phelps and mother of John Phelps).

Between Edmundson's journeys of 1672 and 1676, Henry Phelps had died and Hannah had married James Hill. Edumundson, Journal, pp. 123-4.
