    • Henry Kingsbury was at Ipswich in 1638, according to Felt's History. The Hammatt papers do not give his residence so early, but state that he was a commoner in Ipswich in 1641. He subscribed 2s to the major Denison fund, Dec. 19, 1648. the same year, 648, Feb. 8, he sold his farm in Ipswich, 32 acres, for L5 to Thomas Safford, but this does not mean that he left Ipswich then, for the same year he bought of Daniel Ladd, of Haverhill, "house and land on High St. in Ipswich," and twelve years later, Aug. 30, 1660, Henry Kingsbury andSusan his wife, of Ipswich, sold to Robert Lord their House and Land on High Street for two Oxen in hand - L5 to be paid Robert Paine and 40s to Edmund Bridges. The same year Henry Kingsbury, Rowley, late of Ipswich, and Susan his wife, sold six acres to Reinold Foster. Henry Kingsbury was one of the inhabitants of Ipswich who signed a petition, May 17, 1658, stating tat they have all taken toe oath of fidelity, but are not freemen. They claim the right to cote in town affairs, which had been questioned in town meeting. (
      There was some relationship between Henry Kingsbury and John Gage, who was a neighbor of Kingsbury at Ipswich, and afterwards at Rowley...

      Savage states that John Gage came from County Suffolk in the fleet with Winthrop. He, too, went with the younger Winthrop to Ipswich, and then removed about 1662 to that part of Rowley afterwards Bradford, and was again a neighbor of Kingsbury. Gage deposed in 1662 that he was aged about 58, therefore a somewhat older man than Kingsbury. His first wife was Amee, who died in June, 1658. Either she was Kingsbury's sister, or Kingsbury married Gage's sister. Gage died March 24, 1672/3; his will mentions wife Sarah, five sons and one grandson. Henry Kingsbury was one of the appraisers of John Gage's estate, March 26, 1673, and also of Jonathan Gage's estate, March 15, 1674/5.
