The word "from" is not necessary.
  
 whence = from where,   whither = to where
 thence = from there,  thither = to there
 hence = from here,   hither = to here

True, it's not necessary; but whence, thence, hence are falling into disuse (except in literature and legalese), and people,I suspect, are probably confusing them with the prep. phrases of identical meaning.
