Henry was the son of Henry Sewell II & Anne Hunt. He married Jane Drummer. To this union, 8 children were born.

Henry, came to America at age 20 in 1634 aboard the Ellen and Dorcas or Elizabeth and Dorcas under the command of Capt. Watts. He was outfitted by his father with cattle and provisions suitable to get a good start in the new Plantation. This was a year before his father and his step-mother came to America. He wintered in Ipswich and went with the early settlers to Newbury the next year. He was a freeman 17 May 1637, and became a prominent citizen of Newbury. When Henry married, his father gave him 500 acres of land in Coventry, England, and in 1647 he and his wife returned to England with her parents and resided a short time at Warwick, next at Tumworth, 4 miles from Bishop Stoke, in Hants, where their first two children were born. They moved to Baddesly, in the same shire, about 4 miles from Rumsey, where their next three children were born. He made two visits to New England to look after his father. The second time, he stayed in America sending for his family the following year. His wife and his five children landed at Boston, July 1661, after six weeks passage on the Prudent Mary commanded by Capt. Woodgreen. The family joined him in Newbury where their last three children were born. Henry was deputy to the General Court of Massachusetts in 1661, 1663, 1668, and 1670. He became one of the founding fathers of Newbury Massachusetts.
