The Pamunkey Hendrick Family

“Pamunkey Hendrick” refers to descendants of Hance Hendrick, an early immigrant to Virginia who settled in the Pamunkey Neck of King William County in the late 1690s.  He was the progenitor of a vast and often confusing array of descendants who comprised virtually all persons named Hendrick in colonial Virginia.  By the early 1800s, his numerous descendants had spread into Georgia, North and South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Alabama, and Mississippi.
