    I am a descendant of John Worthington and I am trying to find out his father’s name that died at sea. Also his mother’s name. I have all the genealogy completed back to 1697 in Lancashire England, any information would be greatly appreciated! I have been trying to locate his parents for years, this is the first I heard of his father’s death at sea. Thank you,

    Has anyone been successful in John Worthington’s line back to Lancashire England in 1697? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I had a lot of ancestors that lived on Byberry Rd.
    Thank you, Cheryle

      There is a project going on, they may be able to make that connection for us. I haven’t seen it yet.

      The problem is the number of John Worthington’s and other Worthingtons from Lancashire England in that time frame.

      There is a book that is currently being written for the 17th Century Worthingtons. I have not seen that connection, yet, in the information I have received.

      I am keeping an eye on this one.
