Born at Duvals Lane, Hornsey, Middlesex on 6 November 1824 and baptized at St. Mary's church, Marylebone Road, London on 1 December, son of Samuel Browne Keene (d. 1838), a solicitor of Furnival's Inn, London and at Ipswich, and Mary Sparrowe (1796-1881), daughter of John Sparrow (1755-1821) of the old Ipswich family of Sparrow's House, Buttermarket, and his wife Alicia Wilson (1754-1839).  Educated at Ipswich grammar school (1833-1839) then in Foundation Street, Ipswich but by 1841 was living with his widowed mother at Great Russell Street, London.  He pursued a commercial career settling with the London and Westminster Bank but was 64 year old before being made manager of the Bloomsbury branch.

He devoted his leisure time to yachting and drawing in which he was overshadowed by his brother Charles Samuel Keene [q.v.]   In 1851 a 26 year old banker's clerk, one of the many lodgers of James White and his family at 36 East Street, Finsbury but by 1861 had returned to live with his 64 year old mother Mary at Blythe Lane, Hammersmith.  In 1863 he took a wife, Marian Hanby Robinson and in 1871 living at 9 Portland Place, Hammersmith Road, Fulham with his 35 year old wife, born at Lambeth and children Grace 5, Mary 3 and William 2, all born at Hammersmith and retained two servants and four more children were added over the next ten years when he had moved to 10 Curdlis Road, Hammersmith.  In 1888, when promoted to a bank manager, he moved to 214 High Holborn, Bloomsbury where he retained four servants.

He retired to the Manor House, Bramley, Guildford, Surrey where he was living in 1901 with his wife and seven umarried children.  Henry died at the Manor House in 1909, but his wife and family continued to live there and where his 80 year old wife died in 1916.  His children had successful careers, Mary a violinist, Alfred, a stock & share dealer, William, a stock exchange clerk and Richard, a bank clerk.
