Ancestry and Descendants of William Henrie

Published 1954

To the younger generation
and those
who come after,
this history of the
is dedicated.


      This volume includes data which the author has found and recorded on the ancestry and descendants of William Henrie, the “heir” and progenitor of the Henrie families of Utah. Much time and effort have been expended in the stupendous task of compiling this history.

      It seems to have been the custom of members of the general Henry family, in Scotland and elsewhere, to write the surname as “Henarie,” as Michael, the emigrant ancestor from Scotland, signed his name. Other common ways of spelling the name were “Hendry,” “Henery,” “Henry,” and “Henrie.” In America, there are thirty-two various spellings of the name.

      Host of the later records in this book, genealogical and biographical, were received from members of the family. The data were conscientiously checked and compared with every available source; but it is difficult to write history covering the activities and biographies of different members of any family and not have some part of it conflict with that written by others, no matter how painstakingly the material has been gathered. Family history is interesting, but not always accurate. If there are errors, it is hoped that the family will not disdain to appreciate the product as a whole. If more apace has been devoted to one individual than another, it is because more information was submitted.

      Sincere appreciation is expressed for the interest and assistance of all who have answered questionnaires and letters, who contributed records and sketches, and who in many other ways made this compilation possible.

      It is hoped that, in the not too distant future, another volume of records of this worthy family will be compiled and that it will include all that may be missing in this edition. Families and record-keeping go on forever. To know one’s family is to love and appreciate them.

      This electronic document was created by Ryan Henrie, a grandson of James Richard Henrie. I have done this in hopes that more people could have access to the information that is contained in this book.

      There will be inherent errors in this electronic version as well as the existing errors from the original book. I would like to request from all who acquire a copy of this document to please verify the information about your family and return to me any corrections and/or updates that should be made. Documentation of such facts is also appreciated. If you use WordPerfect v 7.0, please make any changes in the File|Document|Review|Reviewer menu option and return the appropriate file to me. Otherwise, return the two paragraphs previous to the change as well as the corrected paragraph itself in paper or electronic format.

      The changes and updates will be explained by using “Comments”. They will appear as blue squares in the left margin with RCH inside. Just click on them once, and the comment will appear above the information.

      If you have WordPerfect v 7 or 8, then the chapter numbers on the Chapter Organization page are green (as well as the links in the following paragraphs). If you click on any of them, it will jump you to that chapter. In order to jump back (for v 7), click on Tools|Hypertext/Web Links and a new button bar will appear under the regular button bars. Use the Back button just as you would in a web browser. In v 8, right click on the top button bar and select Hyperlink Tools. A new button bar appears: use the left most button to go “back.” I’m not sure how WordPerfect v 6.x will react to these “links”.

      I will also post a version of this in Folio Infobase v3.1 format. It can be opened by Infobases Collectors Library (‘95 or ‘97 editions) as well as any of the Deseret Book and Gospel Works programs/infobases.

      The most current version of this text can be found at As I receive updates and corrections, it will be posted there (for now).

      I can be reached at For current information on my whereabouts check and search for Ryan Henrie.

      Feel free to give copies of this to relatives. Everyone should have it.
