Whilst the Society at present is unable to undertake research for third parties, we encourage inquiries and accept any Worthington Family history information that can be shared. Please contact our archivist Dr. Sidney Worthington.
The 17th Century Project has become a much larger undertaking than originally envisaged. The resulting publication has therefore been divided into two volumes. The first titled Worthington Families of the Seventeenth Century, Volume 1 – Origins in Lancashire, was published in July 2020 and covers the families and descendants from the County of Lancashire, including family in Maryland, USA, known to have originated in Lancashire. The second volume covers other counties in England and Wales (including Cheshire, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Montgomeryshire) and those who emigrated to Connecticut, USA; work on this is well advanced and publication of this second volume will initially be on the website where members of the Society will have access to a valuable record of Worthington pedigrees.
Once Volume 2 has been completed, other projects will be initiated to include 18th and 19th century Worthington families worldwide.
