Henne History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , French


The present generation of the Henne family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain.

The surname Henne 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 Henne may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

Migration of the Henne family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time.
