  • Notes 
    • H. Minot Pitman (citation details below), writing in 1952, made Richard and Joanna Best the parents of Henry Best. John Brooks Threlfall (citation details below), writing more recently, said that they were more likely Henry's grandparents than his parents, presumably on chronological grounds.
