Hennick Early Origins



The surname Hennick was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1296 when Walter de Hunniwick held estates in that shire.

Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Hennick, or a variant listed above:
