This surname of HENDRICKSEN was a baptismal name 'the son of Henry'.The name is a variant of Henderson. A small clan or name of the sept held lands in Upper Liddesdale, but are not included in the Border Clans named in the 1594 Act of the Scottish Parliament. The name was originally derived from the Dutch name HENDRIK, and was brought into England, and then Scotland, in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066. The acquisition of surnames in Europe and England, during the last eight hundred years has been affected by many factors, including social class and social structure, naming practices in cultures and traditions. On the whole the richer and more powerful classes tended to acquire surnames earlier than the working class or the poor, while surnames were quicker to catch on in urban areas than in more sparsely populated rural areas. The bulk of surnames in England were formed in the 13th and 14th centuries. The process started earlier and continued in place names into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the 11th century people did not have surnames, whereas by the 15th century they did. Early records of the name mention John Hendrich, who was recorded in the year 1273, and William Hendricke appears in Scotland in 1273. Thomas Hendeson of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Isaac Bourdon married Mary Hendery in London in the year of 1695. The name has many variant spellings which include Hendery, Hendrie and Henderson. During the Middle Ages the name became enormously popular and was borne by eight kings in England and the name was equally popular on the Continent in various forms. The name was normally Latinized as Henricus in early documents. In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity. As far as records show, true heraldry began in the middle of the 12th century, and appeared almost simultaneously in several countries of Western Europe.
