Six years after James married Lucy, Henry Stentiford, another of James’ brothers, also came to live in the area. He too married a girl from Morchard Bishop – Mary Webber. The Webbers are one of the ancient families to be found in the village and they are still there today. Henry and Mary married on Christmas Day 1878 when she was 25 and he was 22. Like James, Henry remained in Morchard Bishop until his death at the age of 74 on 29 November 1930. Maybe it was a chance seedling, maybe it was planted in Henry's memory but today this great tree springs from the very centre of his grave, towering over the neighbouring tombstones.
