He was originally from Coventry, but had settled in the parish of St Mary Aldermary.
In 1510 he gave £1,000 for the rebuilding of St. Mary's Aldermary Church. When he died in 1518, however, the tower was substantially unfinished and remained so until 1629. He was afterwards buried there, but "his bones were unkindly cast up". (Stow, i., 253). Two later Lord Mayors, Sir William Laxton (1544-5) and Sir Thomas Lodge (1562-3) were buried in his vault.
In 1515 the manor of Apethorpe, Northants, was bought from Ethelreda and Thomas Empson by Henry Keble, citizen and grocer of London and merchant of the staple, William Blount, Lord Mountjoy, his son in law, and others.[Feet of Fines Northants, 7 Hen VII].
Henry Keble died in 1517, leaving Apethorpe entailed successively on his son George Keble and William Lord Mountjoy and Alice his wife, with remainder to John Browne, son of William Browne, late mayor of London, brother to Robert Browne of Walcot in Barnack parish.[Chan. Inq. p.m. (ser.2), xxxii, 9]
Richard Waller in 1461 conveyed his estate of Weston-by-Cherington, Warwickshire, to Sir William Brandon and Elizabeth his wife and their daughter Eleanor. From them it came into the hands of Henry Keble, alderman of London (Lord Mayor in 1510), who inclosed all the arable, except 80 acres attached to the manor-house, amounting to about 300 acres, destroying 7 houses and leaving 38 persons homeless and destitute. His grandson and heir George Keble sold the manor in 1535 to William Sheldon, who in 1545 had licence to impark 300 acres here.
Sir William Laxton, grocer, mayor, deceased 1556, and Thomas Lodge, grocer, mayor 1583, were buried in the vault of Henry Keble, whose bones were unkindly cast out, and his monument pulled down; in place whereof monuments are set up of the later buried. William Blunt, Lord Mountjoy, buried there 1594, &c.
