Origins of surname
This name originated from several places named Henley in England, not necessarily the famous one on the Thames. It is derived from the old English hean = 'high' and leah = 'wood clearing'.
Jean, son of William Henley and Marie, was baptised in St Brelade in March 1775. The first family did not become established until 1804 when the first child of Richard Henley and Harriette Anna Francisca March was baptised in St Helier.
