Re: Surname Origin Henkes

In Reply to: Surname Origin by Henricus Johannes Henkes of 282

Henkes is German. It comes from Henrich (=Henry).
My Henkes' ancestors can be followed to the region of Kassel (Germany) until the 15-16th century.
The Henkes which emigrated to US where called Hanks.

Best regards,
Erhard Henkes
(D-64683 Einhausen, Hessen, Germany)
