Born Dec 8 1830, Ontario, Canada.2,3,4  (c1829, England).5  

There is conflicting data on Daniel's birthplace.  In the 1851 census Daniel was shown as born in England.5  But in both the 1871 and the 1901 censuses he was shown as born in Ontario.2,3  The Henshaw family emigrated from England to Ontario, Canada in 1830, the year Daniel was born.1  It is still unclear at what time of year they arrived in Ontario, therefore Daniel's place of birth is still unconfirmed (there is even the possibility that he was born en route).1  

According to family folklore, due to a family feud, Daniel started to spell his name "Hanshaw" in order to be different from the Henshaws.1  

He married Charlotte Gilroy.4  Charlotte was born Mar 19 1838, New Brunswick.1,3  

Daniel Henshaw was shown in the 1871 census, Ontario, Canada, as follows:3
