Henry King

Birth: 27 Feb 1779, Leicester, Worcester Co, MA

Death: 3 Aug 1827, Leicester, Worcester Co, MA

Father: Henry King
Mother: Prudence Dudley

Spouse: Abigail Wheelock
Intention: 23 Feb 1805, Charlton, Worcester Co., MA

  1. Dexter S. King, born 16 Aug 1806, Leicester, Worcester Co, MA
  2. Pamelia D. King, born about 1813
  3. Amasa W. King, born after 2 Oct 1813
  4. William H. King, born after 2 Oct 1813

Notes:

Henry is probably the son of Henry and Prudence (Dudley) King, of Sutton and later Leicester, Massachusetts. For reasoning, see the Research Notes.

Henry King died intestate, Worcester County probate case 35287. His widow, Abigail King, declined to settle the estate of her husband, so the duties fell to her son, Dexter S. King. Bond was filed on 25 Aug 1827 by Dexter S. King, yeoman, John King, Esquire, and Daniel Livermore, yeoman, all of Leciester.

Other children of Henry King named in Worcester County guardianship case 35333: 2 Oct 1827, Pamela D. King, over 14 years of age, a child of Henry King late of Leicester, decd, and made choice of Abigail King for her guardian. The "above named Abigail King" also appointed guardian of Amasa W. King and Wm. H. King, two children of Henry under fourteen years. Signed by Dexter Sutman King, John King, Esq, both of Leicester.

Research Notes:

Henry is referred to as Henry King, Jr. in the land and vital records. For example, on 17 Mar 1808 Henry King, Jr. of Leicester, and his wife, Abigail, mortgaged a tract of land in Leicester to John Wheelock of Charlton (Worcester County deed 169:317). The records of births of his children in Leicester also refer to him as Henry King, Jr.

This suggests he was the son of Henry and Prudence King, born in Leicester 27 Feb 1779. He would be just the right age to record his intention to marry Abigail Wheelock on 23 Feb 1805.

The bond for Henry's administration of estate was posted by Dexter S. King (his son), Daniel Livermore (a neighbor), and John King, Esq. John was probably his brother, another son of Henry and Prudence King.

The 1810 U.S. census shows Henry and John King living jointly on property in Leicester. This was probably Henry, Sr, and his son, John, based on an 1804 deed in which Henry sold half his property in Leicester to John King of Ward (now Auburn), Massachusetts (Worcester County deed 154:257). The deed has no dower signature. In 1814 he sold the remainder of the property to John King (Worcester County deed 193:568). There is again no dower signature, which implies that it must have been Henry, Sr, since Abigail would have signed such a deed if it were Henry, Jr. Prudence died in 1802, explaining the lack of her signature on either deed.
