Henry's sister married a Markham. Henry Aspden emigrated between 1830 (when daughter Catherine was born in England) and 1838 (when daughter Hannah (or Anna) was born in New York). In 1850, he was living near Adam and Elizabeth (Aspden) Exton (daughter), in Nottingham Township, Mercer County, New Jersey, occupation "none".
