Regarding the surname origin, I have heard several versions, please correct me if I'm wrong. The word "henker" was supposed to mean "hangman" in old German, the source of this was a shopping mall geneology kiosk printout. Other versions include "person who lives in a hedged enclosure" & and that it may be an abbreviation of "Haigman" (Haggie=Henke). Several web searches turned up zero on my surname origin.
