From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Henriques family included several prominent Sephardic Jewish benefactors of Portuguese descent during the 19th century in Great Britain. Henriques itself is a portuguese surname meaning Son of Henrique (Henry). A West-Indian merchant firm called Henriques Brothers existed in the 1800s[1]. It is not clear when the Henriques family migrated to England, but the middle name Quixano stems apparently from the marriage of Moses Henriques and Abigail Quixano, the daughter of Abraham Quixano.[2]. The family ancestor was one Duarte Henriques.
