Henry  Grimshaw, Immigrated to Connecticut

and Married Julia Thompson

(Note: Webpage in preparation)

Home Page

There were apparently two Henry Grimshaws – an early one in Massachusetts and a later one (Henry and Julia Grimshaw) in Connecticut. A third Henry Grimshaw, married Martha, was in Massachusetts and was probably the earlier Henry Grimshaw’s son. This Henry and the Connecticut Henry were approximately the same age.

The images of the two census records for Thomas and Henry are shown below in two sizes. Thomas H. (or W.) Grimshaw was a 27 years old deck hand from from Canada. Henry and his wife J.E. (probably Julia E) Grimshaw were 48 and 45 years old, respectively, and were living with their daughter, J.E. Grimshaw (age 15; probably Julia E also), sons J.N. and E.E. Grimshaw (ages 12 and 7), and daughter Elen M. Grimshaw (age 4). Henry was born in England, but the rest of the family were born in Connecticut.
