The immediate ancestor^ of the American family, was, however,
his great-grandson, Jacques Henno, who was Heutenant of the
guard formed by the Huguenot citizens of Valenciennes to resist
the Spaniards; and who, after the capture of the town, fled to
England, toward the end of the 16th century.

With him, at the time, was his son, Jean Henno, who afterward
married Catherine Jone, and whose son (the grandson of Lieutenant
Jacques Henno), Jacques^ (or James) Henno, 3d, emigrated to
America in 1648, and settled at Windsor, Connecticut.

4. Jacques de Henne married Jeanne Doye, daughter of Antoine
Doye, Bailiff and Receiver of Gommegines, and of Rose Dugardin,
daughter of Alard Dugardin and Jeanne Roger.

6. Jacques (James) Henno married Anna Bidwell at Windsor,
Connecticut, America, in 1648.

father of Jacques Henne at the Reception of Burghers,

'Jacques Hennot, late lieutenant of the military guard of Valenciennes,
surrendered twice at Tournai, the first time with Guy de Bres (the celebrated
Huguenot preacher, executed there in 1567), the second time after the death of
the latter. He was then taken under guard toward Lisle, but escaped through
the intervention of a band of Huguenot horsemen, after which escape all trace of
him was lost by the authorities. He was pursued by order of Theodore Cresia,
commandant of the Italian Cavalry (under the Duke of Alva), who gave in-
structions to capture the body of Jacques Hennot wherever he might be found,
promising an honorable sum to any one who should deliver him dead, or a double
amount if the said Hennot should be deUvered alive. ("Confiscations et ordon-
nances concernant les troubles survenus a la fin du VXI Siecle," Royal Archives,
Brussels, where, also, is found the decree confiscating aU the lands and goods of
said Jacques Hennot, and branding him as an outlaw.) The next trace of him is
in the documents of the British Museum relating to the religious wars of Flanders.
There among the names of the refugees is found that of Jacques Hennot, late
lieutenant of the military guard at Valenciennes. This Jacques Hennot settled
in an EngUsh Province; his son John, however, repaired to London, where we
find the record in the archives of the Threadneedle Street Church of the baptism
of James Hennot, son of John Hennot, on August 21, 1625. This last-named
James Hennot is inscribed in the Historical Record of the British Museum as
having left London for North America in 1648. "Archives Threadneedle Street
Church," Vol. ii, pp. 1576-1624. State papers, etc. 32091-32096 (from 1086 to
1760), and especially 1571-1624. British Museum MSS.

The name is spelled variously Henne, de Henne, Hennot, Henno, and later,
in America, Enno. It was not spelled Eno until about 1700.

Jacques Henne (1st). His father-in-law is given as Nicolas
Pesquier in the will of his nephew, Francois^. He was alderman
(echevin) of Valenciennes, in 1466 and 1491, and Prevot (Royal
Governor) in 1480^

Jean Henne: Jean Henne is given as the deceased husband of
Isabelle Jeanne Caille in her will, September 13, 1559 ^ and as the
son of Jacques Henne in the will of his brother, Francois, September
23, 15478. He was alderman of the city in 1536-1539 and 15429.

Jacques Henne (2). His father-in-law is given as Antoine Doye,
Receiver of Gommegines". He is mentioned as the son of the late
Jehan Henne and Isabel Guaille, in a deed of sale". He was alder-
man in 1560-61-1566, and Treize Homme in 1577^^

The Eno Family in America

The name has been variously spelled on this side of the Atlantic;
Enno, Eno, Enos (Enoe — rarely).


6. James Enno, son of Jean Henno and Catelaine Jone, who
founded in America the family that bears his name, was a native of
London. He was baptized August 21, 1625, in the Threadneedle
Street Huguenot church. He sailed for America in 1648, and
settled in Windsor, Connecticut. The final "s" was added by
Major General Roger Enos, but was always silent. There has
always been a tradition that the family came from France. That
word ''always" is to cover a period of nearly 250 years, 1646-1891.
It is worthless unless the tradition was written down by some one
early in the 18th century. The name "Ennew," pronounced
"Ennoo," has long existed in Colchester, Co. Essex, Eng. The
Rhode Island family of Enos pronounced their name with an "s."
It is found written in the 18th century Ennis, and "Eanoss." The
Delaware Enos family doubtless descend from the Rhode Island
family. James Enos's trade of a barber is as much English as
French. In his day no man in London could vote unless he was a
member of one of the trade guilds of that city. Nor could he be
elected Alderman, Sheriff, or Lord Mayor of London until he had
served his apprenticeship in a trade guild. The Lord Mayor was
required to be a member of one of the twelve great Livery Com-
panies. James Eno had probably learned his trade of barber-
surgeon in the Barber-Surgeon Company of London, of which Sir
Astley Cooper and other eminent surgeons were apprentices. New

England, Maryland, and Virginia were largely settled by men who
had thus learned their trades as apprentices to the English Craft
Guilds. Isaac Allerton of the "Mayflower," whose descendants
are among the most distinguished of New England and Virginia
people, learned his trade in the Merchant Tailors' Company,
London. John Gedney of Salem, Mass., "Vintner" and "inn-
keeper," and his son, Bartholomew Gedney, "ship carpenter,"
ancestors of the noble family of Fairfax in Virginia had learned their
trades there.

The first American mention of James Enno is a record in "Windsor
Church Records" of his marriage to Anna Bidwell, August 18, 1648.
There has been found no record of his arrival in this country, but his
grandson, Samuel Eno, of Windsor, who seems to have been a man
of property and influence, and who was nineteen years old when
his father died, and thirty-three years old when his mother died,
was therefore probably familiar with the history of his grandfather,
and caused a tablet to be erected to his memory in the Old Windsor
burying ground with the following inscription :

"In memory of Samuel Eno, Esqr., and Eunice, his wife. He died Aug. 17,
1778, in the 83d year of his age. She died May 7, 1792, in the 84th year of her
age. And also Eunice, daughter of the deceased, who died March 23, 1757, aged
9 days. And also Sam'l Eno, son to Mr. Samuel Eno, junr., who died Feb. ye 27,
1789, in the 4th year of his age; and also Mr. James Eno who came from England
and settled in Windsor A. D. 1646, and died July 11, 1682. His wife died Oct. 7,
1679. Also James Eno 2d, who died July 16, 1714— his wife died March, 1728,
and was buried in Simsbury, old bur3dng ground. Also Lieut. Dan'l Eno, died
Dec. 9, 1797, in the 56th year of his age."

He received a grant called Massacoe^^ He lived in Windsor,
as did his son James 2d, but both owned lands in Massacoe or
Simsbury, which was an appendix of the plantation of Windsor
and was not incorporated as a separate town till the year 1670.
He owned an island in Simsbury River, near Scotland, about
twenty-one acres, which he gave to his sons James and John. This
island with fifty acres of land, was granted to him in 1660, "by Mr.
Henry Clark and Mr. Matthew Allyn appointed by the Cort,"
and John Moses and others had also land then granted them in like
manner (Simsbury Records, lib. 1, p. 90).

"In the year 1660, James Enos had fifty acres of land and an
Island granted to him within the limits of Simsbury by Mr. Henry
Clark and Mister Matthew Allyn apoynted by the Cort and John
Moses and others had also land then granted to them in like manner,
a true coppy. I, Mathew Grant^^, do testify that James Enos had
this grant made to him as above sd. taken out of a coppy I had by
Mister Henery Clark and Mister Mathew Allyn."

^^Among other records of property deeded to James Enno is the following:
"Also had given in the Palizado a stray of land on rodd in breadth and in length
from the four side of his shop as it now stands back to the line of Walter Taylers
land and bounded North by the land of Tahan Grant and east by the Towne
Common. Nov. 28, 1663" (Windsor Records).

In April 1666, James Enno and John Moses, acting as agents for
the town of Windsor, bought from Nassahegan, sachem of Poquon-
noc, a tract of twenty-eight thousand acres, for which service the
town granted him lands known as Tilton's Marsh, situated under
the Simsbury mountains.

In W. Ld. Rec, under date of 28 Nov. 1663, is rec. gt. of "a stray
(i.e., a strip, or small, unused piece) of Id." to James Eno, "in the
Palizado, to build him a shop upon, to barber in, and he has now
built it" — see also chapter on ''Early Settlers and Distribution
of Home-Lots." (In corroboration of this hint at James Enos's
business, there still exists in the possession of a member of the
Eliphalet Eno family of Torrington, Conn., a very curious shaving,
or barber's bowl, such as were used by the surgeon-barbers of olden
times, and are even now used in Spain and some other European
countries. This bowl is of coarse crockery, grayish- white; 38 inches
on its outside, and 24 inches on its inner circumference, and has on
one side of its rim a circular indentation, intended to fit around the
neck and under the chin of the person being shaved, while nearly
opposite to it is a hold, or dent, in the rim, evidently for the thumb.
There is, also, another hole in the rim of the bottom of the bowl, for
the purpose of inserting a string which encircled the waist of the
customer, to hold it in place. The inner face of the bowl is decorated
with representations of the various utensils and adjuncts of the
barber's trade (viz., scissors, razor, combs, soap and brush, and the
date 1663) done in blue and under-glazing, as is, also the con-
ventional ornamentation of the border.

In 1664, James Enno with six others presented a petition to the
court asking for church privileges and baptism for their children.
Signed by Wilham Pitkin, of Hartford; Michael Humphreys, of
Windsor; John Stedman, of Hartford; James Enno, of Windsor;
Robert Reeve, John Moses, of Windsor, and Jonas Westover, of
Windsor. This petition, written and signed, is still preserved at
the State Library in Hartford.

Inventory of his estate offered at Hartford by his widow, and his
son James and relict Hester Enno appointed administrators July 19,
1682. His children agreed to the distribution of his estate, and
John Mandsley, Return Strong, and John Moore set out to the
widow her £20, given by jointure to her and housing and lands
according to the jointure (she being his 3d wife), and the remainder
ordered to be delivered to his children forthwith, the children agree-
ing to pay the duties against the estate.

3. John Enno, b. Dec. 2, 1654. He was an early inhabitant of Simsbury.

The town was destroyed and the buildings burned by the Indians,
March 26, 1676. Upon the return of the inhabitants land was granted
on condition that the grantee should improve it. Simsbury Records,
lih. 1, fol. ii: "At a gen'U Towne meeting of ye inhabitants of Simsbury

Simsbury, not only those derived from his father, but lands acquired
by himselfi9/2o.

James Enno, 2d, deeded most of his lands to his children before
he made his will. He gave his half of the island to his sons, James,
William, and John, of Simsbury, and Samuel of Windsor. His will
is dated June 24, 1709. Inventory dated August 5, 1714. Estate
£642/17/6. His wife died in 1728, and her son-in-law, Joseph
Case, presented the inventory of her estate.

In the same family is kept a very ancient Eno baptismal blanket
and "fixings," thus described by the present owner, Mrs. Henry J.
Jackson, age 70, a grand-daughter of Ehphalet Eno of Torrington,
Conn.: "This baptismal robe is a piece of cloth, of mixed cotton and
silk, quite thick, with stripes of various colors and shades (drab,
green, blue, and red), very gay. It is 3 feet 4 inches in length, and
2 feet 8 inches wide, of two breadths; a pair of little sleeves of the
same material, 8 inches long; a pair of mitts (very small) of drab
linen, embroidered upon the back and around the thumb with silk
thread, and tipped at end with red silk; then a tiny little cap of silk
of darker stripes and trimmed around with same as robe." In the
hands of Mr. John S. Eno of Brewsters, N. Y., is an ancient sword
said to have been brought from England by the Emigrant Eno,
which has been handed down for several generations in the line of
the eldest son. (h. r. s.)

In 1664, James Enno, with six others, presented a petition to the
court, asking for church privileges and baptism for their children.
The original petition is still preserved in the State Library at
Hartford. See also p. 192-194, Vol. I.

Died July 16, 1714.

Married, December 26, 1678, Abigail Bissell, daughter of Samuel
and Abigail (Holcombe) Bissell. She was born July 6, 1661, and
died April 19, 1728. It is probable that the Bissell family is of
Huguenot origin, but the founders of the American branch came
directly from England. John Bissell was in Windsor, Conn., before
1640, and died October 3, 1677. Samuel Bissell, third son of the
preceding, was born in Windsor, and died May 17, 1697. He
married, June 11, 1658, Abigail Holcombe, daughter of Thomas

William Case, of Simsbury, as members of the Church of England in
trust for the Church. The Episcopal Church in Scotland was organized
