MCHENRY Family HistoryRecorded as McHenry, McEnery, McEniry, McHendry, McKendrie, McKendry, O' Henry, O'Henery, Henery and Fitzhenry, this is a Gaelic surname. It derives from either Mac Eanraig in Scotland or Mac Einri, O' Hinnerighe, and the Norman FitzHenry in Ireland, but ultimately all from the pre 6th century Germanic personal name Heim-ric translating as Home-power.

In Ireland the surname is associated both County Wexford in the East and about as far away as possible at County Limerick in the West...
