    • Biography

      Henry Cantrell was a US Southern Colonist.

      In the year 1616 and the thirteenth year of the reign of King James I of England, a son was born in Jamestowne to William and Mary Cantrell. He was named Henry. For eight years his father had been closely associated with the new colony of Jamestowne having first arrived there in 1608.

      Henry grew up quickly among the wheeling and dealing of a newly rich tobacco empire and by the age of fourteen was involved in the trans-oceanic trade of the "noxious weed." That year he came as a passenger on the Unicorn landing at Blunt Point and was responsible for overseeing the loading of a few hogsheads of tobacco for shipment to England.

      "In 1631, Henry sent some tobacco to his brother William, then in England. Henry and his shipment of tobacco crossed the Atlantic on the Unicorn." [1]

      It is said that Henry was married to a lady named Alice. He was 19 years old when his first son Richard was born in 1635. Another son, Henry, was born in 1639.

      In that year Henry was back in Virginia and is listed as an inspector or the tobacco crop, and was a Justice of Charles County, Virginia; he adminstered the oath to men of experience and dignity, who were appointed Inspectors of Tobacco Crops.

      Henry returned to Derbyshire, England and opened a tobacco shop, to which his brother shipped goods. Henry married Margaret Shaw 11 Oct 1640, in Kniveton, Derbyshire, England. She was born in Creech, Derbyshire, England 10 Aug 1619.

      Henry died in 1682 in Lawrence PA.
