|How much did Henry know?

After learning that General Tilney was attempting to encourage the relationship between Henry and Catherine it made me look back at their interactions in Bath and afterwards. In some ways it added a creepiness to their relationship for me because it made me wonder if Henry was thinking about his father's feelings while he courted Catherine. I know that Henry met Catherine before General Tilney came to Bath, but do you think Henry knew all along that his father wanted him to marry Catherine? Did this guide his interactions with her?
On a side note. I noticed that in NA2 they hinted at this situation when General Tilney presents Catherine to Henry at the ball. I was taken aback by this because it added an awkwardness I did not detect in the book.
