The ancestors of the name Hene date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hene family lived in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Hene 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 Hene may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hene 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.
