Group Description


This Group is for a small number of people anywhere in the world descended from any family by the name of RUSHWORTH, RUSHFORTH, or RISHWORTH. In 1881 there were less than 3,000 people in Britain with one of these surnames, and they were predominantly around Bradford in Yorkshire (UK) with the surname RUSHWORTH. Hence RUSHWORTH is being used here as the generic name for the Group, but it should be noted that the original name from which they were all most probably descended was RISHWORTH or more correctly De RYSSEWORTH. A history of the surname is given at - http://www.rushworth.com/hist/index.htm

The purpose of this Group is to enable members to exchange RUSHWORTH family history information likely to be of mutual interest by means of a common e-mail list.

You can join the Group or leave for free at any time. If you want to join now, please include brief details of your interest.
