The name Hennekare was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from the baptismal name for the son of John.

Hennekare Early Origins



The surname Hennekare was first found in Oxfordshire, where they were Lords of the Manor in that county from the most ancient times. The family originally settled in England after the Norman Conquest and at that time was registered in the rolls as De Hanacre.

Hennekare Spelling Variations



Hennekare has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Hennekare have been found, including Hanker, Hancker, Hanekere, Hanekare, De Hanacre and others.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hennekares to arrive on North American shores: Christopher Hancker, who sailed to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1752 and William Hanker, also to Philadelphia in 1813.
