Notes
General:
In 1937 Meredith Colket examined earlier claims that Henry Herrick of Salem was son of Sir William Herrick of Beau Manor, Leicestershire. Colket brushed aside four of the arguments in favor of this ancestry as "not merit[ing] the consideration of serious students of genealogy," and then proceeded to examine more closely a letter of 28 June 1653 sent from Henry Herrick to his brother in Leicestershire, demon~strating convincingly that this Henry Herrick must have been the settler of that name in Virginia, and was distinct from the New England settler [TAG 14:96-98]. In 1993 Philip Howard Gray attempted to resurrect this identification, on the basis of the 1653 letter [Penobscot Pioneers (Volume Three): Billings, Gray, Herrick (Camden, Maine, 1993), pp. 93-98]. His arguments are tortured and ad hominem, and do not overturn the conclusions of Colket. In particular, the 1653 letter includes the lament that "We have not a Preacher in near twenty miles of us." Colket correctly noted that Henry Herrick of Salem and Beverly was only two or three miles from the ministers of Salem and Wenham. Gray engages in a long discussion of the necessity of walking up Bass River to a fording place and back down the other side to Salem when the weather was too bad for the ferry to run. Such a circumstance would not have produced the line in the letter of 1653. More significantly, the social status of the New England Henry Herrick is much below that of the claimed Henry Herrick of Leicestershire. Most secondary sources assert that Henry Herrick arrived in New England by 1629, and had married Edith Laskin by that date. This derives from the mistaken interpretation of the first list of Salem church members [SChR 5-6], which supposes that they were all founding members of the church in August 1629, when this list actually includes only those persons (and not even all of those) who had been at any time between 1629 and 1636 admitted to Salem church and were in December 1636 still alive and residing in Salem.

Henry's will is dated 24 Nov. 1670 at Beverly and proved 28 March 1671. The inventory of his estate was taken 15 March 1671. In the will he mentions wife Edith, sons Henry, Thomas, John, Ephraim, Joseph, Zachry, Benjamin and daughter Elizabeth. His will is reproduced below:
