I am researching the Worthingtons of North Carolina. Alston WORTHINGTON is the oldest ancestor I can find. And he is also my brickwall.

I have a tree on ancestry.com that I am open to sharing if there are folks who can help me continue my search of “where did I come from?”

Many thanks!

    Alston Worthington is almost certainly a descendant of Sir John Alston, one of the original founders of the Carolinas. Former President George “Dubya” Bush is a descendant of Sir John Alston through his mother, Barbara Pierce Bush. Alston descendants were among the most prominent land-owning families in early North Carolina. The South Carolina branch of the family sometimes spelled their name with two “L”s – Allston – but it is the same family.
    Russ Worthington found remarkable similarity of staircase architecture in an ancestral Worthington bome, compared to the famous staircase at Winterthur Museum, a staircase the Dupont family took from the North Carolina plantation “Montmorenci”, built by William Williams, whose mother was an Alston, and TWO of William’s wives were also Alstons.
