Family History

Henry Kinne

He was the son of JOHN & SARAH (CHEEVER) KINNEY and grandson of SIR THOMAS KINNEY, who was knighted in 1618 for outstanding service to King James I of England and was the Lord Mayor of Kings Lynn.

When Henry was a child (circa 1624), his parents traveled with other Puritans from England to Leyden, Holland to escape religious persecution. At the age of eleven years, Henry, in the charge of Vincent Potter, he sailed from Holland by way of London in 1635 on the good ship, ELIZABETH AND ANN arriving in New England in his 12th year. The name, Vincent Potter, aged 21 is on the ship’s manifest and with him he “had apprentices” that he placed with new masters in 1639. In the notebook of Thomas Lechford, a lawyer, is written on page 262: “Henry Kennigne, placed as an apprentice with William Park of Roxbury on April 21, 1639”.

His name was spelled in several ways.. appearing in records of Ipswich, Mass. in 1648 as “Henry Keny”; his name was also spelled Kenney & Kiene in Salem Vital Records; and Kenne on Oct. 10, 1667 when he signed a petition in Salem Village. In a deposition at Salem in 1684, he gave his age as sixty years.

By 1649, Henry was a planter in Salem (now Danvers), Mass. Bay Colony, and married ANN PUTNAM, daughter of EDMUND AND ANN (COMPTON) PUTNAM, on May 16, 1649. His house was located in what is now Danvers between Preston & Nichols Street, and was known as “The Henry Kinne House”, burning down in 1696. He owned about 60 acres of the surrounding land (conveyed to him on Feb. 26, 1661). The old Danvers cemetery lies on the land owned by Henry, Sr. and later, Henry, Jr.

Henry was a soldier under Major Sedgwich about 1654 at the taking of St. John from the French. Later, he was an “Essex Trooper” at the capture of Fort Narragansett with Capt. George Curwin’s Company on Dec. 3, 1673 and with Capt. Prentice’s troop of horse. In 1676, he served under Capt. John Whipple of Ipswich near Springfield. He drew pay for military service in 1676 as well as receiving a land grant. He along with others petitioned the General Court in 1667 asking to be excused from military watch in Salem because it left their families & houses unprotected. It was decided that all farmers who lived four miles from Salem Meeting House should be exempt from military watch.

He joined the Salem Church on Aug. 24, 1654, was taxed in 1686 and served as a constable for the settlement in that same year. He testified against Rebecca Nurse on March 24, 1692/3 during the Salem Witch Trials…”Henry Kinne rose up to speak. he entered his complaint & farther said that since this Nurse came into the houise he was seized twice with an ‘amazd’ condition.” The Salem Witchcraft Papers: Verbatim Transcripts of the Legal Documents of the Salem Witchcraft Outbreak. 3 vols. New York, NY: 1977.). New York, NY: Cambridge University Press, 1992.
“Henry Keney and Edward Putnam, Yeoman both of Salem Village” made a complaint against Martha Corey in 1692 (from Cutter). The Kinney family, Putnams and Nurse/Nourse family lived in close proximity to each other and there were land disputes between the the Putnams and the Nurse family.

Henry’s grandson, Joseph (son of Thomas) was given a Bible by his grandfather when he married containing the family history. When Joseph’s son, Jacob, died he copied what his great grandfather had written and this legacy of information is called “Jacob’s Bible” and contained the following: “my father was ye John Keney out of Norfolk in ye olde England and my mother was ye Cheever and my grandfather was ye Sir thomas Keney in Lynne ye marchant and trader there who was sooe Knighted by ye Goode Queen Elizabeth for ye gifts of ships to ye Captiane Daves ye Navigator…” The original Bible is lost, but two copies of “Jacob’s Bible” are said to still exist.
