 More

During the era when a person's name, tribe and posterity was one of his most important possessions, many different spellings were found in the archives examined. Kilworth occurred in many references, and spelling variations of the name found included Killingworth, Chillingworth, Shillingworth and others.

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]
