Footnotes

  • Field's Armorial for Cumberland (1937) states that a Christopher Henderson removed to Biglands in 1704 and later removed to Longburgh. Biglands is a hamlet situated in the hinterland of Burgh-by-Sands in Cumberland. The name supposedly originates from the large quantities of 'big' that grow there, a grain similar to barley. The Hendersons of Fordell include Sir John Henderson created Baronet by Charles II in 1664, the son of John Henderson who was knighted by Charles I. The family may be traced back to Thomas Henderson who was Clerk of Inverkeithing Cocket in 1406
