Herndon Genealogy & History

Herndon is an English surname from the village of Harrowden in Northampton or the village of Herndon in Bedford. The former comes from the Old English compound hearg, meaning temple, and dun, which means hill; the latter is from herne, for cottage, and den, meaning valley. Wherever it comes from, Herndon family history comes to the New World with Willam Herndon, who sailed to Virginia in 1673. Herndon genealogy boasts of several notable people, such as prominent nuclear and geophysicist Marvin Herndon; widely-traveled cornerback Kelly Herndon; and explorer and naval Commander William Herndon, namesake of Herndon, Virginia.
