Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Auldwortheys to arrive in North America: Elizabeth Aldworth who landed in Bermuda with her brother Edward in 1635; where they started their plantations. They later moved to the mainland. Joseph and Richard arrived in 1848.
