These pages are dedicated to our Henden/Hendon ancestors who migrated from England to Virginia circa 1697

The purpose of this site is to collect, archive, and disseminate information about the brothers Richard and Josias Hendon who were born in America near the end of the 17th century.

Most of the descendants of Josias settled in Maryland, the Carolinas, and Georgia, then west to Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas and Oklahoma by 1900.

Richard's descendants settled in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin and farther west.
