HENDEN Family HistoryThis is a locational name of two possible meanings and origins. It derives either from the village of Hendon in Durham which translates as "The Valley (denu) of the hind" (hind) or from Hendon in Middlesex where the origination is "Heane-dune" - the high hill. Both are Old English pre 7th Century and whilst the Middlesex village is recorded as early as 959 A.D. in the Anglo-Saxon chronicles as "hendun", the Durham village is not recorded until 1382 in the County Pipe Rolls. The surname is not surprisingly, well recorded in the London area in a wide variety of spellings including Hendoone (1581), Hindan (1690) Hendin and Hendon, the first recording of the latter would seem to be Anne Hendin who married Anthony Pearson at St.
