DILWORTH Family History

This is a very old Lancashire locational name, which derives from the Village of Dilworth, near Ribchester in Lancashire. The medieval spelling of the name of the village may have been Dylleword, although this is not directly recorded in the name spelling. The origin is Olde English pre 7th Century. The name meaning "the enclosure (word) in which the dill (herb) grows. Locational names were almost always given when a person moved to another village or to the Lord of the Manor, as in the first recording.

My husband's family came from County Tyrone as far as I have found. His great-great grandfather Francis William Dilworth arrived her4e in 1855 from Ireland. I have found quite a few ancestor names but I am not sure they are the correct ones when I get back to the 1500s. I don't have the money to order the papers documents. I have the ones from I am not totally sure I have connected them correctly. If anyone has suggestions, they are welcome. Thanks. Enjoy your day.
