The Worthington Families of the Seventeenth Century: Volume 1 Origins in Lancashire: 1 (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


This volume of the Worthington Families of the Seventeenth Century covers the lines in Lancashire but also elsewhere in the world where their ancestry has been traced back to Lancashire; three in Lincolnshire, one in Warwickshire, one in Middlesex and one in Maryland, America. Volume 2 will cover the remaining lines.

Over a period of more than ten years members of the 17th Century Project researched original written documents, microfilms, microfiche images and online databases which resulted in the accumulation of over two thousand eight hundred references to Worthingtons from 1560 to 1730. These were entered into ten volumes of one hundred pages each as a Register of Worthington References. From these references over sixty pedigrees were produced of which thirty two are covered in this volume. Each chapter deals with one pedigree and each person within the pedigree has an individual article devoted to them. In addition to the pedigrees there are seventy six illustrations.

As an academic reference work this book is commended to the leading genealogical libraries of the world and to individuals who are researching their Worthington ancestors.

Philip M. Worthington was born in 1926 in Leek Staffordshire where his family had been mill owners for three generations. He graduated from Nottingham University with a degree in engineering and had a successful career as a consulting engineer and industrial economist. He has been chairman of a number of companies in the UK and his own company specialised on business consulting. Philip has pursued an interest in genealogy since his early twenties which was inspired by his cousin, Percy W. L. Adams, the pottery manufacturer and wrote two previous books - the Worthingtons of Medieval England and the Worthingtons of Failsworth.
