There is a problem with the parentage of Henry or his birth date. One source provides that he was the son of George and Mary Howard and supposedly born in 1747. However, Mary Howard died about 1740. George had re-married twice in that time, firstly to Anne Lee in 1741. She died in 1742. George was then married to Martha Harcourt in 1744. Martha died in 1794. So Martha would be the mother of Henry???
