Henry Grant was buried on 4 Feb 1664/5. He married Elizabeth Gilbert on 7 Jan 1655/6. She was the daughter of Jerome Gilbert, bap. 27 Nov 1624. Henry was the son of Walter Grant, bap. 4 Oct 1617, although that makes his age at marriage unusually high. He was the brother of Thomas Grant who in 1676 made a deathbed surrender in favour of his nieces Bridget Hewet and Anne Grant, daughters of Henry. Henry's daughter Bridget was bap. 23 Dec 1656, and her son Grant Hewet was bap. 23 Apr 1676. Anne was probably Henry's daughter bap. 11 April 1664, although her name has been transcribed as Jane. For more on the family, see Grant v Hewitt 1698. According to this, Henry had four daughters: Bridget, Elizabeth, Susan and Anne. The last three died without issue.

jorn = iron
