You may have noted that our name was changed. The committee decided that it better represented the interest of the participants. The new name represents more of a genealogical intent and helps to separate our reunions from more local area family reunions. We would also like to build the success we had recruiting Woodworths from our Canadian neighbors.
The following information is posted on: http://woodworth-ancestors.com/whos-who.htm
As you can see, the East Coast Woodworth Families Reunion is no longer active. It has been replaced by this group. Contact us if you have any questions.
“(DISCONTINUED GROUP) The East Coast Woodworth Families (later renamedWoodworth Families of America) was established in 2005, and was for east coast Woodworth family reunions. The group was was, until June 2011, a Yahoo list/group that was an offshoot of the Rootsweb Woodworth mail list/group, established for the purpose of conducting the business correspondence of Woodworth reunions. The Yahoo web site for east coast reunion group has been deleted, and the function of the group was transferred to the 2013 Woodworth Family Reunion group, now renamed Woodworth Family Descendants Reunion 2015. “
After spending time conducting a preliminary church record search of baptism, marriage and death records, Judith Moore our Genealogist has uncovered some evidence of Woodworths in the Saint Mary's at Eccles, Lancaster – which is located a few miles from Manchester, England. According to Wikipedia, Eccles developed in the 13th Century, however, earlier settlements have recently been discovered. The parish of Eccles included the townships of Barton-upon-Irwell, Clifton, Pendlebury, Pendleton & Worsley and toward the end of the Dark Ages had a population of about 4000. It should be noted that Saint Mary's at Eccles is an Anglican church.
Part Two of this project is to research the probate records in the hopes of discovering some informative wills that will help us build on these family units.
Our genealogist searched the following Woodworth spellings: Woodworth, Woodworthe, Woodwort, Woodworde, Woodword, Woodwarde, Wodwort, Wodward, Woddworthe, Wodwort, Woodword, Woodward, Wodsworthe, Wodsworth and Wadsworth.
