Death*1776He died in 1776 at Mere, Wiltshire, England.1 
Burial*13 August 1776He was buried on 13 August 1776 at Mere, Wiltshire, England; Son of James. Since there is no baptism for a Henry Coward, son of James, but there is one for a Henry Coward, son of John in 1773, I am inclined to think that this is an error.1 
Residence*He lived at Mere.
