Henrietta Marie Colden, a salonierre, was born in 1745 on the Isle of Man, where she met her husband Richard Colden, while he was serving with the 42nd Royal Highlanders. Colden was the eldest son of politician Cadwallader Colden. He died of fever in 1777 after the family retreated to London during the American Revolution ("Benjamin"). After his death she sought to regain the family's property in New York, and returned to the city with her two sons around 1787 (Jameson 80-81; Anthony 74).

In New York City after the Revolutionary War, Colden was a salonierre and hostess, a friend of the families of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, and a correspondent of Thomas Jefferson ("Colden Jefferson"; Root). Physician Samuel Latham Mitchill wrote that during the period that Congress met in New York City, James Madison "was fascinated by the celebrated Mrs. Colden ... she who was so noted for her masculine understanding and activity, as well as for feminine graces and accomplishments" (Madison).
