An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Heene come from when the family resided in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Heene belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The surname Heene may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

Heene Early Origins



The surname Heene was first found in Sussex, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Heene or a variant listed above: John George Henn, who sailed to America in 1740; John Peter Henn to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1744; Henn family to America in 1763; Barbara, John and Nicholas Hen to Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1764.
