Henry was the first born child of Louis Brunotte (1829 Germany - 1911 CA) and Johanna Margaretha Elisa (Leistokow) Brunotte (1830 Germany - 1913 CA). Born in New York state, Henry moved with his parents to San Francisco before 1867. The Brunotte family resided on August Alley in San Francisco until the mid 1880's. Henry's father and some siblings were employed as tailors.
Henry chose another occupation and became a gunsmith before 1878. He continued this occupation until his death but also added electrician and inventor to his paid talents.
He married Mary Magdalene Newton 21 Feb 1887 at the First Methodist Church in Santa Barbara, California. Four children were born to this marriage:
- Infant Son Brunette (16 Jul 1887 - 18 Jul 1887)
- Latimer Joseph Brunette (1888-1954)
md Laura Leona McCaleb
- Ethel Marie Brunette (1890-1960)

NOTE: Birth date calculated from age at death: 40y, 1m, 11d (heart disease).
NOTE2: Henry Louis Brunotte was also known as Henry Louis Brunette. Some records are found under 'Louis Henry' and 'Lewis Henry' most likely to avoid confusion with his father. The spelling of his surname as 'Brunette' seems to have started before 1887 but occasionally was still listed as 'Brunotte' after that year.
NOTE3: Burial: His death certificate states that he was buried at Calvary Cemetery, his remains are NOT located there. He is also NOT buried at Santa Barbara Cemetery with his widow and infant son.
