I've been hoping for a HENLEY discussion list, so I guess it's time to
stop lurking and contribute. I have included, below, a brief synopsis of
my family. Hezekiah and Thomas HENLEY, supposedly from somewhere in
England, are given without any more evidence than reports about an old
DAR application, which I have not yet seen. The Virginia part, beginning
with Reyonlds Henley, in York County by 1656, can, I believe, be relied
upon.

My goal is to retrace the family back across the Atlantic. So far I have
had no leads, though family tradition is that we are from Shropshire.

I would appreciate any information and would be happy to share.

(As a side issue, has the source of the name HENLEY ever been
determined? Anglo-Saxon or Norman? "hen - lea" or "Henri"? Or some
other?)
