Henry Glenton 1796-1857

Baptism record for Henry Glenton, my great great great great grandfather. He was born on 15 May 1796 in Liverpool to Jonas Wilson Glenton and Betty Becca Kelsall.
His baptism took place at St George's Church, Liverpool on 16 June the same year.

Henry married Anna Maria Jeffers, daughter of a British plantation owner from Barbados, in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania USA on 15 August 1818.

They returned to Liverpool and had the following children:

Henry Wilson Glenton, born 26 April 1822
Harriet Glenton born in 1828 (my great great great grandmother)
Benjamin Willoughby Glenton born 1830
Suzanna Glenton born 1834
John Jeffers Glenton born 1835
Eliza Ann Glenton born 1845

Henry died in 1857 aged 61 years old of "Inflammation of the Lung". 

Census documents state he was a book keeper, probably in the docks.
