  • Note:
    The Hender family first arrived in Cornwall from Wales when David de Hendower, the son of Madog de Hendour of Wales, married Isabella de Cornwall, also listed as Sibilla or Isabel de Cornwall. She was the daughter of John de Cornwall and his wife Margaret or Margery Trejago. They, David and Isabella, were married the 8th of July 1343 at Westminster.

    This 'CORNWALL' family was of the ancestral House of Cornwall which descended from the Kings of England, namely Henry I, King John, and Richard, King of the Holy Roman Empire. Isabella was the sole daughter and heir of John de Cornwall and as such brought to the Hender family the Manor of Court of Brannel by inheritance. This manor was granted to Richard, Earl of Cornwall and King of the Romans by his father King John. From thence, via family lines the manor passed to the family of Cornwall until it was inherited by Isabella the sole heir and daughter of John de Cornwall. The family of Hender held the manor for about 150 years from the 8 July 1343 wedding until the death of Richard de Hendour in 1495. Whence it pasted out of the Hender family hands, as Richard only had daughters to inherit.

    Madog de Hendower, David de Hendwr's father, was descended from the Welsh Princes of Powys. As being of royal decent both from Wales and England, the family of Hendower/Hender in Cornwall was highly revered and distinguished as being so related to both these Royal houses. Further, it is Gwerfyl, the sister of this David de Hendwr son of Madog de Hendower, who married Grono ab Tudor and was the ancestor of the Tudor Royal line of England. As such, her descendants became the Tudor Kings of England.

    The Coat of Arms held by the Hender family of Court is described as being that of Hendower, a Welsh family and surviving heirs of Cornwale of Court in Brannel, the heirs of Hendower in Trewarthian cir. Henry VII: being Arms in azure (blue) a Lion rampant between an orle of escallops.

Again, it was the arms granted by Cooke Clar., azure orle of escallop shells a lion rampant 'or' or gold, to the Hender family of Boscastle. (See Boscastle below).
