Henry Hatcher I, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Henry Hatcher I might describe his life as follows.

Because I died so very young, I can tell you little about myself. Anne Lound and I were the parents of 2 sons and 3 daughters all of whom were minors 1 September 1677 when Henrico County granted Ann administration of my estate, I having made no will. 
Good women being few and far between then, within a year, Anne was married to a Moody, probably Samuel Moody who was one of my father’s neighbors in 1679.
Although our children undoubtedly lived with Anne, their grandfather Henry Lound became their guardian, taking responsibility for what little property I owned at my death that would belong to them when they reached their 21st birthday. To give them a start in life, Lound gave his wards some livestock in August 1678.  Likewise, my brothers, Edward and Benjamin, gave livestock to their 5 “cousins,” then a term meaning niece or nephew, and guns to our 2 sons, in April 1680. 
All the children reached their 21st birthdays before August 1697 when the court discharged Lound from his guardianship duties. 
Our daughters, who married men named Tanner, Edloe, and Ward, and our sons lived south of the James in present-day Chesterfield County.

Because the court discharged Lound from his guardianship 20 years after Henry’s death, his children were likely all under the age of 10 when he died.
A 1675 patent to Edward Hatcher listed “Hen. Hatcher” as a headright.  Perhaps Henry or his son made a trip to England.

Henry Hatcher, the explorer
Virginian history relates the accounts of Indian trader Henry Hatcher. When William Byrd made his visit to his Eden estate in North Carolina in 1733, he reported finding a tree inscribed “J.H., H.H., B.B., Lay here the 24th of May 1673.” The initials were said to be those of Joseph Hatcher, Henry Hatcher, and Benjamin Bullington. It was Henry Hatcher who gave Maj. Abraham Wood his eyewitness account of the murder of explorer James Needham at the hands of the Occaneechi in Jan. 1674/5.  As there is no known individual named Joseph Hatcher, “J.H.” might refer to John Hasecoll, the Indian escort of the expedition who murdered Needham. 
Possibly the Indian trader Henry Hatcher was identical to this Henry Hatcher because we know Henry’s brother Edward Hatcher traded with the Indians. Further, both Henry’s father William Hatcher and the Bullington family lived at Varina in Henrico County. One Benjamin Bullington, perhaps a kinsman of the explorer of the same name, was living in Henrico County in 1696.
