Etymology

The family name is a variant of the name, Hernando. The suffix “-ez” was added to a root name to indicate “the son of”. Spelling variations of this surname include Herraiz, Herráez, Herraez, Herranz, Hernaiz, Hernáez, Hernaez, among others. The name can be traced to Castile, Spain, where the name originated in Visigothic times.

Our Line

Herman Hernandez, who was born in the 1860s, is the earliest known patriarch of our branch of the Hernandez Clan.  His wife was Maria Macaria Anderson, supposedly of American-Mexican descent.  They raised their family in Lipa, Batangas, Philippines.

By marriage, the clan is related to other families of note: Francisco, Gonzales, Magno, Ortiz, Pacheco, Trinidad and Zaldivar.  Individuals, kin to the Hernandez Clan, are known to be athletic, hardworking and business-savvy.    Their patriarchs have played a big role in the post-war rebuilding effort; and their descendants have figured prominently in academe, arts, business, government and sports.

Thanks for the visit, Jezreel! Unfortunately, I have not done a lot of research on the Francisco family. Aside from the name of my great-grandmother, I do not know anything else about her or the clan.
