The ancient roots of the Hennes family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Hennes comes from when the family lived in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Hennes 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 Hennes may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

Hennes Early Origins



The surname Hennes was first found in Sussex, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hennes arrived in North America very early:
