Howarth

My Howarth family can be traced back to Sowerby, Yorkshire, England.  The surname spelling varies from generation to generation.  Howarth, Howorth, Hawarth, Hawarth are all found in this line.  For practical purposes I have used the modern spelling that the family uses today.  See this page for BMD documentation on this line.

Robert Howarth was born circa 1720-1722 based on his son Robert’s birth.  His wife’s name is unknown.  He had: Robert (c 6 APR 1749, St. Peter and St. George, Sowerby, Yorkshire, England; d FEB 1814).

In this generation the spelling was predomoinately Howorth.  Robert Howarth (c 6 APR 1749, St. Peter and St. George, Sowerby, Yorkshire, England; d FEB 1814) married Hannah Walsh (c 5 NOV 1749, St John the Baptist, Halifax, Yorkshire, England) on 5 NOV 1782, St John the Baptist, Halifax, Yorkshire, England.  They had: John  (c 19 JAN 1783, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), James (c 22 FEB 1784, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England; d young),  James (c 19 FEB 1786, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England; d 1867), Sally (c 13 JAN 1788, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Nancy (c 31 MAY 1789, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), William (c 3 AUG 1791, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Richard (b 13 DEC 1792, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Susey (c 12 JUN 1796, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Robert ( c 27 MAY 1798, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), and Jonathan (c 23 NOV 1800, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England).  See my Walsh page for information on Hannah’s family.

In the next couple of generations the spelling was predomoinately Haworth.  James Haworth (c 19 FEB 1786, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England; d 1867) married Betty Heap (bc 1783; d 1850).  They had: Susey (c 11 AUG 1812, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), James (c 20 NOV 1814, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Hannah (c 16 MAR 1817, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Sarah (c 13 JUN 1819, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), John (c 5 AUG 1821, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), Elziabeth (c 17 AUG 1823, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England), and Mary c 18 DEC 1825, Sowerby near Halifax, Yorkshire, England).  See my Heap page for information on Betty’s family.

By this generation the surname spelling had settled to Howarth.  Joseph Howarth (b 23 APR 1848, Manningham, Yorkshire, England; dc 1924) married Hannah Wilkinson on 11 AUG 1886, Bradford, Yorkshire, England.  See my Wilkinson of Yorkshire page for information on Hannah.  They had:Harry Wilkinson (c 24 OCT 1884, Clayton, Yorkshire, England), James (b 13 JUN 1887, Clayton, Yorkshire, England; d BEF 1959), Doris Elizabeth (b 25 FEB 1890, Clayton, Yorkshire, England; d 10 JAN 1978), Grace (bc 1893, Clayton, Yorkshire, England), George (bc 1898; d AFT 1967), and Nellie (b 13 OCT 1902, Bradford, Yorkshire, England; d 30 AUG 1976, Blackpool, Lancashire, England).  By 1910 the family had moved to Blackpool, Lancashire, England.
