Margaret Henshaw1 [Margery Henshaw2,3,4, Margery Hinshaw1].

Born Feb 18 16145 [Feb 18 16156], London, England5.  

Note that either this birth date is wrong, or her parents were not Thomas Henshaw & Katherine Gower, since Thomas Henshaw & Katherine Gower were married in 1618.7  Thomas Henshaw had been previously married however,8 so it is possible that maybe Margery's mother might have been Thomas' first wife.9
