bullet  Notes:

Henry was the eldest son, a farmer, and leased Jolyns in Ash from 1615 to 1628. He inherited land from his father at Hale/Badshot near Farnham in 1625, and probably went to live there, as he was described as 'of Badshot' when he leased Ash Manor and Mongers from 1646 (when his younger brother Nicholas died) to 1653. He was described as 'Henry Stevens senior of Ash with 3 hearths' for the 1664 Hearth Tax.

Henry married and had three known sons, but his will and burial have not been traced. His eldest son was Nicholas (qv). The middle son was Henry, who leased Ash Manor, Mongers and Jolyns from 1653 to 1664, and was described as 'Henry Stevens junior with 5 hearths' in the 1664 Hearth Tax. The youngest son Thomas also lived in Ash, and was recorded as having 3 hearths for the Hearth Tax: he, his son and his grandson all named Thomas most likely leased Jolyns between 1682 and 1774.
