Tree 2: Worsbroughdale

Swaithe Hall, Worsbroughdale

This is the second oldest tree dating back to the very beginning of the 16th Century. Unfortunately, it has not yet been possible to prove a direct connection between it and the original Cawthorne-Ingbirchworth tree.

Having said that, it is almost certain that if future researchers can go back far enough, it will be found that the two branches have the same ancestry.

Worsbroughdale and Cawthorne-Ingbirchworth are geographically close and there is clear evidence that members of the two branches knew each other and on occasions did business together. There was even one marriage involving both trees!

These branches shows a direct connection from the very beginning of the 16th Century in Yorkshire through to descendants who were to be found not only in Yorkshire but also in the south of England in the 19th Century. So far as we know, this branch is now extinct.

Because of the size of this branch, it has has been split up into the two following separate branches.
