Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Doutharte is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the village of Douthwait, which was located on the border of North Lancashire and the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Doutharte Early Origins



The surname Doutharte was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Douthartes to arrive in North America: Abraham Dowthwaite who settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1796 with his brother Robert; William Douthwaite arrived in Philadelphia in 1803.
