"My hope is in God"

My own family charts are shown here

This site is a collaborated effort of family researchers. We learn as we go! Click on the Family Crest to learn more about the origins of the name. Our surname seems to involve a relatively small group of folks who originated concentrated in Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Lancashire and London, England. Dewhurst in Lancashire becomes Dewhirst in Yorkshire. Many family members still reside in these same areas. If they emigrated, they seem to have gone to Canada, USA, So. Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

Heading into the new millennium, we began to post Family Group Charts of other Dewhurst lines with the idea that we will eventually connect them all up. Links below are arranged alphabetically by FIRST name (within each chart, anything underlined is "clickable" and leads to another chart!)
