Golesworthy

Matrilineal Monday – Golesworthy

My late mother-in-law was a Golesworthy. Unusual enough to make research slightly easier? That’s until you start looking at the family’s place of origin – Honiton in Devon, UK. Two streets of them in the 1880′s – and they all seem to have loved the name “William”.  Still, I’ve found her

  • parents – Walter Frederick Golesworthy and Lilian St John
  • grandparents – Harry Thomas Golesworthy and Ellen Carter, William Samuel St John and Harriet Roberts

I’ve found some of her great-grandparents too, including Charles Golesworthy. But going back beyond his birth in 1820 has been (and remains) a challenge. But that’s what makes genealogy fun!
