The village was first mentioned in 1267 as Ecclesiam Henrici, and means "(private) church of Lord Henric" and is probably a reference to Henricus de Scinge.[3] 's-Heer Hendrikskinderen is a circular village around a church which developed in the Late Middle Ages.[4]

The Dutch Reformed church dates from the 15th century. The tower is probably incomplete. The current church was built in 1805.[4] Castle Heer Hendriksburg used to be located near the village. In the 18th century, it was rebuilt as an inn, and was demolished in 1803.[5]

's-Heer Hendrikskinderen was home to 137 people in 1840.[5] 's-Heer Hendrikskinderen was a separate municipality until 1857,[6] when it was merged into 's-Heer Arendskerke. In 1970, it became part of the municipality of Goes.[5]
