Henry was the son of John Baskett and Elizabeth Cardwell. He married Sarah Trigg on July 15, 1708. They had ad at least three known children, Daniel, Mary and Martha.

Henry's death is one of four that occured in a 16 day period. The first being his father, John, who died on November 28th, Sarah, Henry's wife, died 3 days after Henry, and Honor Baskett, wife of James, died on December 14th. All are buried in the Christ Church Cemetery.

There is no records that prove Henry was buried in this cemetery, but based on the events in his life within this church parish, it would seem reasonable to assume he was also buried here. The historian of the Christ Church states "We have no location data on earlier burials before 1843. The vast majority of headstones are from the later half of the 20th century. Your ancestor does not appear in our known-burial records. I have contacted the Lower Methodist Church in Hartfield, Virginia, 23071 and the Hermitage Baptist Church, in Churchview, Virginia, 23032, and they have no record of burials before about 1850 either."
