In ancient Scotland, the ancestors of the Hendrix family were part of a tribe called the Picts. The name Hendrix is derived from the personal name Henry.

A few years later Hendricus Prid was listed in Yorkshire in 1212. In Essex early records revealed Alice as daughter of Henry de Sanford who bore the seal of S. Alis. Filia Hendrici in the 13th century. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The expense of the crossing to the North American colonies seemed small beside the difficulties of remaining in Scotland. It was a long and hard trip, but at its end lay the reward of freedom. Some Scots remained faithful to England and called themselves United Empire Loyalists, while others fought in the American War of Independence. Much of this lost Scottish heritage has been recovered in the last century through Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Hendrix:
