HENDRICKSON Family History

Recorded in Europe in some four hundred surnames spelling forms since the medieval times, this name is a derivative of the pre 7th century German personal name "Heim-ric", meaning "home rule". Compound names of this type, were very popular in the centuries proceeding the introduction of surnames in the 12th century, and this is a good example of the genre. Recorded in such varied spellings as Henrich, Hendrich and Henrick (German), Hendry, Henry and Henryson (English and Scottish), Aimeric, Enric and Henric (French-Provencal), Hendrick, Hendrik, and Hendrickson (Flemish), Jendircke, Gendricke, Jina, and Jindrick (Czech & Slavonic), the Spanish Enriques, and the Hungarian Jendrassik, the name, as a first name, was most popular in England, no less than eight kings being so-called, but as a surname the name is most popular in Northern Europe.

June Hendrickson

Charles Henry Hendrickson Born - June 3 1885 Korsneas (Korsnas), Province of Wasaw (Vasa), Finland Immigrated to North America in the spring of 1901-1902 aboard the vessel Lake Ontario, I have no information about him before that other, then he possibly had 5 sisters and a brother whose name was believed to be John. On a draft registration he listed Helen Mattson" living in Vasa Finland as his closest relative.(Possibly a married sister?) He spoke both English and Swedish.
