HENNEBERRY FAMILY



MICHAEL HENNEBERRY was born about 1756 in County Kilkenny, Ireland. He married Catherine Elizabeth Horne, daughter of Jacob Horne and Francoise Savary, of Eastern Passage. They lived on a piece of land gifted them by Jacob.

Andrew Phillip Henneberry, son of Michael & Catherine, leased land on McNab's Island and plied the fishing trade from there. When the lease was up, he moved to Stoney Beach on the mainland.

Andrew petitioned for the use of Devil's Island, as it was closer to the fishing grounds. About 1830, Andrew and his large family (including his father) moved to Devil's Island, making the first permanent settlement on the island. Henneberrys lived on the island until the mid 1940s when most people moved ashore during WWII.
