Where did the English Henrick family come from? What is the English Henrick family crest and coat of arms? When did the Henrick family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Henrick family history?

In ancient Scotland, the ancestors of the Henrick family were part of a tribe called the Picts. The name Henrick is derived from the personal name Henry.


The appearance of the printing press and the first dictionaries in the last few hundred years did much to standardize spelling. Prior to that time scribes spelled according to sound, a practice that resulted in many spelling variations. Henrick has been spelled Henricks, Hendrick, Hendricks, Hendrix, Hendryx and others.

First found in Staffordshire where Hendricus was listed in The Kalendar of Abbot Samson of Bury St Edmunds in 1188. A few years later Hendricus Prid was listed in Yorkshire in 1212. In Essex early records revealed Alice as daughter of Henry de Sanford who bore the seal of S. Alis. Filia Hendrici in the 13th century. [1] The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 lists: John Hendrich in Cambridgeshire; and William Heneriche in Oxfordshire. [2]

The expense of the crossing to the North American colonies seemed small beside the difficulties of remaining in Scotland. It was a long and hard trip, but at its end lay the reward of freedom. Some Scots remained faithful to England and called themselves United Empire Loyalists, while others fought in the American War of Independence. Much of this lost Scottish heritage has been recovered in the last century through Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Henrick:
