HENDERSON Family History
This is an ancient Scottish name, the patronymic (meaning "son of") form
of Hendry, a mainly Scottish variant of the personal name "Henry". Some
bearers of the name Henderson are descended from Henrysons, the "d"
being a common intrusive element in many languages between "n" and "r".
Henry is from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements "haim"
or "heim", home, and "ric", power. It was introduced into England by the
Normans after the Conquest of 1066 as "Henri". In Scotland the
Hendersons of Fordell in Fifeshire are the chief Lowland family of the
name, and are believed to be descended from an old Dumfriesshire family
