I have just begun to search for my Henkes and am looking for help. My great grandfather was Herbert Henke. He married Margaret Mary Wise in 1910. Herbert would have been born approx 1885 and died 4th January 1931. His parents were Cord and Caroline Henke. They were apparently first cousins and never really married but just posed as a married couple. They had three children Herbert, Charles and a daughter whose name I don't know. Cord was a Master Tailor. He and Caroline apparently fled from Germany as their parents wouldn't allow them to marry. Their grandfather was suppose to be a bit of a tyrant and not only did they run from Germany so did their siblings. Some to Australia, Canada and England. Cord and Caroline went to Birminham, where they had their children. Does anyone know of Cord and Caroline or their descendents.
