Henry was born about 1752 in either England or Maryland. He died in Wayne County, Ohio
His personal history has yet to be uncovered. He was married to May 3, 1770 to Ann Blaknon (her last name has not been verified) in Fredrick County, MD at the Evangelical Lutheran Church. It was a second marriage for both Henry and Ann, as the church records indicate that they were both widowed.
It is unclear whether or not Henry was the brother of the other Bevington men that were living in the US at the time, who were John, Charles, and Thomas.
A biographical sketch of Henry Bevington by his grandson, Dr. Harvey S. Bevington states: "To give a short and comprehensive sketch of the Bevington family, it is necessary to go back to the advent, to this country, of one Henry Bevington, who, with his wife. emigrated from London, Eng., immediately after the close of the Revolution, and settled in New York. In religious belief he was a Quaker, and a tailor by trade; early in life he sustained the loss of one leg, which no doubt had something to do in determining his profession. They reared five children who grew up to maturity, and those of that name in this country can trace back their ancestry to this family."
However, the 1880 US census information of their daughter, Lucinda Bevington Scott reveals that both of her parents were born in Maryland.
Henry and Ann were the parents of several children, including my maternal 3rd great-grandfather, John Bevington.
