He died circa 1588 at the age of 49 in West Ham, Essex, England.6 Henry was the son of Peter Meautys and Jane Astley. He had two brothers [Thomas and Hercules] and a sister [Frances].

The National Archives Prob 11/45/221 and the Jermy site give Henry's birth as about 1525 or 1526. This would make his mother about 8 or 9 at his birth and over ten years before his parents' marriage. It is noted in Sir Peter's bio, that he and Jane had a child baptized in February 1539, either Henry or Frances. This date would be close to the two year mark after the wedding and fitting the birth of the eldest child.

Henry sold the site of Stratford Abbey, with 240 acres and the Abbey mills to Sir John Nulls in 1633.
