Henry, O'Henry, McHenry, Hendry

One of the more successful Ulster family DNA project is the Henry Surname Project. The project is researching the anglicised surnames of Henry; Hendry; O'Henry; McHenry and their variations. The project has already located several Henry families, among the the Henrys of the Bann Valley, which have Highland Scot origins, and the Henrys of Bushmills, which is a sept of the Ó Catháin family.

Renee Hendry Greene has reconfigured the results charts for the project web site. Each participant name is also linked to his lineage and to the lineages of the group to which he belongs. If you see any problems with your information, please e-mail Renee at

The Project's three results charts that are accessible from the Results link at the web site:


There are 173 participants, including several with variations of the Henry name - Hendry and Hendren. Several participants took advantage of the July sale on extending markers and so there is some new data available in some groups.

Several family groups are shaping up nicely - many going back to Ireland or Scotland. Two participants who have been in the project for a while now have matches for the first time.

The very capable administrators are Doris Noland Parton, who created the Henry project is busy keeping up with developments in the project.

Renee Greene is the premier HENDRY expert and is also assisting with reviewing lineages for new members. Lind below:
