Early Origins of the Killingsworth family


The surname Killingsworth was first found in Northumberland where Killingworth is a township in the parish of Long Benton. There may have been another local in Norfolk as many of the early records of the surname are found there: Adam de Kellyngworthe was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273; and Thomas de Killingworth was vicar of Windham as listed in the Feet of Fines of 1388. The Feet of Fines of 1561 list Thomas de Killingworth, again in Norfolk. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Killingsworth surname who came to North America were:
