Biographical or historical data
Thomas Meekins Henley (1783-1846) was born in Williamsburg, Virginia on 6 January 1783 and died in 1846. He was part owner of a tannery and farm in Essex County and pastor of Upper Essex Baptist Church. He became a follower of Alexander Campbell and a minister in the newly organized Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He moved to King and Queen County when his second wife, Elizabeth Temple (1778-1861), a descendant of Colonel Humphrey Hill, the founder of Hillsborough, inherited Hillsborough from her uncle, William Temple (d. 1835), in 1835. The marriage produced two sons, Joseph Temple Henley (1818-1870) and Samuel Straughan Henley. Samuel S. Henley (b. ca. 1819) married Robinette Pendleton (b. ca. 1822), daughter of Philip B. (d. ca. 1840) and Rebecca Pendleton. Joseph T. Henley (1818-1870) married Betty T. Walker (b. 1825) on 11 November 1845.
