In spite of our best efforts, our Hendon ancestry still contains many "brick-walls";  i. e., we lack sufficient information on some individuals to correctly place them with the right family. Example: my own ancestor, James Hendon (ca 1733 - 1791),  who married Hannah Norris, is said to be the son of Josias Hendon and Elizabeth Robinson. No proof has ever been found that connects him to Josias Hendon; no mention of James in either Josias or Hannah's Wills; no birth infomation for James; no military info. We aren't even positive he was born in Maryland. The only records which I'm aware: James Hendon and Hannah Robinson marriage document from Maryland archives.
 
Some of us who've joined the Hendon DNA Project don't believe James' father was even a "Hendon". 
We are currently exploring this possibility and will convey our findings when we complete them.

 
After publishing my book, Hendon Family Chronicles in 2008, I've found errors which I'm trying to correct.
So, while 
researching, I've discover new information that is not included in the book(s). Some of those "Brick-walls" Follow.
 
As additional information becomes available, that information will be linked to this page.

As always, your comments are welcomed. Write: Wayne Hendon
