The historic German region of Prussia was the original home of the name Henneritz. Henneritz was a local name, a type of hereditary surname that identified people by the places where they lived. Landowners were the first to use local names, which often used the prefix "von," meaning "of" or "from," in some cases a mark of aristocratic birth. Local names are by far the most common type of German hereditary surname. Henneritz was a name for someone who lived in many places throughout Prussia. The surname Henneritz was created from the widespread and popular Christian name Heinrich. According to some, the name comes from heim, and rich, meaning "ruler of the home."

Henneritz Early Origins



The surname Henneritz was first found in Prussia, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. The name became popular from its use among many Germanic Emperors and nobles. Most noted among these were Heinrich I (der Vogler) and Heinrich II, both of whom are also holy figures. Others include Heinrich VII of Luxemburg and Prince Heinrich the Lion of Brunswick. Individual bearers of the family name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Heinrich Heymrich of Kassel in 1368.

The Great Migration



Much of German history has been shaped by the state of Prussia. It was an enduring military power until after the Second World War. At that time, the state was abolished altogether and its land divided between the Soviet Union, Poland, East Germany and West Germany. While some Prussians were content to remain in those countries, others moved away, many of them migrating to North Ameri ca. They entered the United States mostly through Philadelphia, moving on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Others went to Canada, settling on the prairies and in the province of Ontario. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were: Johann Heinrich, who settled in America in 1709 as well as Georg Heinrich, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1731.
