The surname Southworth was first found in Lancashire, principally in the area of Samlesbury Hall where they held a family seat from very ancient times, as Lords of the manor of Southworth. Specifically, Houghton with Middleton and Arbury was an ancient family homestead. "The three manors were granted by the Baron of Newton at an early period to the Southworths, at first of Southworth, but afterwards of Samlesbury. Sir John Southworth, said to have been a favourite of Queen Elizabeth's, is supposed to have sold much of the family property in this quarter; which is extremely probable, as in the 11th of Charles I., of all the extensive possessions of the Southworths, the manor of Samlesbury was alone remaining."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Southworth, Southwood, Sowarth, Southwerth and others.
