The Irish name Henrys was originally written in a Gaelic form as O hInneirghe, which is derived from an adjective meaning easily roused early.

Henrys Early Origins



The surname Henrys was first found in County Tyrone (Irish:Tír Eoghain), the ancient territory of the O'Neills, now in the Province of Ulster, central Northern Ireland, where they held a family seat at Cullentra. From here, the head of this Irish sept extended his territories into the valley of Glenconkeiny in County Londonderry.

The various spellings of the name that were found include O'Henry, Fitzhenry, MacHenry, MacEnery, MacEniry and others.
