The Worthington Family History Society has many members from all walks of life and from all over the world. If you are undertaking research into a Worthington Family, we encourage you to join our Society where you may be able to establish other historical and family links.
Members enjoy a number of benefits:
Register of Worthington References
Access to primary records titled Register of Worthington References (with subtitle and volume) which have been gathered during the research process for the forthcoming publication on the history of the Worthington Families in the 17th Century. Ten such Registers, all indexed, covering the period 1500 – 1730 have been compiled so far and an eleventh is in preparation. Copies of these Registers are available to members who have paid five years of subscription to the Society or made an equivalent donation.

SponsorshipThe Worthington Family History Society gratefully acknowledges the eight original sponsors when the 17th Century Project was formed in 2005, namely Philip M Worthington, Janet Worthington, Stuart Worthington, Sidney Worthington, Judith Worthington, Lloyd Worthington, Patricia Ward and Donald Worthington. The Society is also grateful to its members, past and present who have supported the work of the Society in researching the Worthington families of the 17th Century.
