Surname Saturday – Whitworth

The first ancestor in my tree with this surname is Mary Whitworth

My ancestral line is:

1 Lois Whimpey

2 Ivon Walter Whimpey (1923-2009)
3 Edith Jean Marr (1922-1990)

4 John Ernest Whimpey (1884-1960)
5 Ivy May Harley (1890-1959)

8 Joseph Whimpey (1848-1919)
9 Sarah Jane Sharp (1853-1906)

18 Henry Sharp (1826-1892)
19 Jane Elizabeth Oldroyd (1828-1902)

38 Mark Oldroyd (1791-1868)
39 Elizabeth Sidebottom (1796-1878)

76 John Oldroyd 
77 Mary Whitworth (1759-1851)

Mary Whitworth married John Oldroyd on 17 June 1781 at All Saints church, Wakefield, Yorkshire, England.  They had five children:

  • John Oldroyd (1783-?)
  • Matthew Oldroyd (1787-?)
  • James Oldroyd (1789-?)
  • Mark Oldroyd (1791-1868)
  • William Oldroyd (1795-?)

Mary was buried 16 February 1851, at the West Parade Wesleyan Chapel, Wakefield, at age 92.  This indicates a birth year of 1759.

The most likely baptism record I have found was that of Mary Whitworth, the illegitimate daughter of Anne Whitworth, baptised 26 November 1758 at All Saints, Dewsbury.

There are two possible baptisms for Anne:

  • Hannah Whitworth baptism 6 March 1734 at Dewsbury, All Saints, father Saml
  • Hannah Whitworth baptism May 1744 at Dewsbury, All Saints, father Joseph

I have not tried to trace the family any further back at this time.
