Misc. Notes
According to Bartlett,601 Henry Squire “was born in Charlton Mackrell about 1563, according to his own deposition in 1580, when he is termed a husbandman or Moorlinch, aged about sixteen years. Probably he was an apprentice to some yeoman in Moorlinch, a parish about seven miles from his birthplace. He returned to Charlton Mackrell where he [p. 55] had children baptized from 1587 to 1599, and probably continued there until about 1613 when he moved into the adjacent parish of Kingweston. He was termed ‘Henry Squire later of Kinweston neere Somerton in Somersetshire,’ 25 Dec. 1649.* [original footnote: * ‘Aspinwall’s Notarial Records,’ Boston, p. 267.”] He therefore probably died in Kingweston, but the exact date has not been learned as the early parish registers are lost and neither will nor administration on his estate can be found.

“He married about 1586, but the name of his wife has not been learned.”

Henry Squire and his wife are ancestors to U.S. Presidents Fillmore and Taft328 (in addition to the other notable descendants reported under his daughter Edith Squire and her husband Henry Adams).
