There is an IGI record, later submitted, which suggests that Henry was born 13 December 1864 at Calcutta, West Bengal in India and baptised at St. Leonards, Shoreditch in London on 8 January 1865. However, the BMD confirms his death in 1940, aged 80, which conflicts with this proposition. This particular record refers to the son of John Paget and Mary Ann.
