Family name also given as Hinksman, Henchsman, Hinchman. His given name is sometimes shown as Edmond or possibly Edward.
Edmond and Elizabeth lived at Martley, Worcestershire, England from 1628 to 1640, immigrating to America sometime after that. He was in Marshfield, MA from 1651-1659, and Chelmsford, MA from 1660-1668.
Researcher Mary Hinchman (see reference) cites two theories as to the origin of Edmund Henchman:
One source...indicates Edmond is Edward Henchman, son of Thomas and Ann Griffith Henchman of Northampton, England and nephew of the famous Bishop Humphrey Henchman.The following assignments may not be entirely accurate, as some minor discrepancies in names and dates (e.g., between the Martley data and the Chelmsford data) have not been totally worked out.
Another source... writes that Edward of Chelmsford was the son of Edward, the son of Thomas and Ann Griffith Henchman. He further states that Edward and his brother Thomas came to Boston in 1637 with Rev. John Fiske [who married the widow Elizabeth Henchman] and that Edward and Elizabeth were the parents of Daniel, Thomas and John.
[Both sources] refer to The Henchman Family published in England in 1868. Thomas Henchman a descendant of Thomas Crosborough Henchman had two sons - Edward and Thomas. Edward, a merchant in London in 1633, married --?-- Platt, d/o John Platt, s/o Sir Hugh Platt. Latter Day Saint records list the birth of two Henchmans named Edward and Thomas - Edward born 2-9-1628 St. Nicholas Acons London and Thomas born 2-14-1629 St. Andrew By Wardrobe London.
