The ancient origin of the name Hendrickson was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Henry', Hendrickson is a baptismal name. Variants include Henry, Henryson, Hendry, Hendrie, Hendrick, Hendricks, Hendrey and Hendriks. This name was introduced to England by the Normans in the form of Henri, and during the middle ages the name became very popular and was borne by eight Kings, a record not equalled until the twentieth century. Hendrickson is thus of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above countries. Examples of such are a Willemus Henryson, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379 and a Thomas Henryes, Somerset, who was recorded in the ancient document 'Kirby's Quest'. In Scotland the name is popular in Ayr and Fife. A William Henry was a witness in Perth, in the year 1551. In Ireland we find the names Henrick and Hendrickson being borne by a family in County Wexford who were a branch of the MacMurroughs. Mac Annraic is the Gaelic form of this name.The Hendrickson family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Hendrickson descendants.
