HISTORY OF
WESTMORELAND FAMILY
Some researchers of the Westmoreland Family are convinced that we are connected to the Neville Family with the "Earl of Neville" being passed down to the "Earl of Westmorland."  There are just as many researchers who have rejected this theory claiming no proof has ever been offered.

I have not been convinced either way, but I have tucked this information away along with lots and lots of other information I have received in the event that proof is finally found.  I have received this information from several sources and have decided to pass it on to those who may not have it in order for them to decide for themselves the credibility of the information.

I will admit that it would certainly add a little "royalty" and I would love to be able to hang a few "Earls" on my tree, but for now, I will be content with my plain, down to earth, hard working ancestors and I am proud to hang them on my family tree.
