Little is known of his boyhood days, but as a youth he worked at Quamby House attending the gardens. When he married Inez Melvina Gertrude Badcock they lived in the cottage at Quamby House. They produced two sons, Ira and Ray.
Melvie spent a lot of energy gathering the fallen fruit and nuts from the Quamby orchards to be boiled up and fed to the pigs. Her copper became quite green and was unable to be cleaned. Henry had a paddock near Knight's Bridge where he kept a cow. Each day they would have to drive the horse and buggy there to milk the cow and bring the milk home. For seven years Henry did share farming with Mr. Vere Heazlewood at West wood, where he gained a good reputation as a farmer. From there he bought the property, Vere Lyne, at Hagley.
Henry was very devoted to the Methodist Church at Hagley. He held most of the positions of leadership in the church — Sunday School Superintendent, trustee, church steward, and a tenor singer in the choir. Two years before his death Henry had a severe stroke. He was too ill to attend to the farm and his son, Ray, with his wife Mona and young family moved to Vere Lyne to assist. Henry died on 28th July, 1942 and was buried in the Hagley Methodist cemetery.
