Great to hear from you. Can you give me the name of the "furthest back" male in your line of Darwoods that you know of - g-grandfather? Many of these Darwoods moved out from the Cambs area to other parts of Eng.. Some moved north to Notts, etc. over the yrs. I have worked on this line for some time and started this forum a few yrs ago. I write to many of my 6th and 7th cousins in Eng.

If I had more info I could possibly find out more about your connection to many of these on this forum.

In the 1800s and early 1900s the Darwood name was fairly prevalent in Eng., but it is less common now. Some of the Scots Darwoods seem to have gone to Cananda. and one line from somewhere in the UK went to New England (eastern US early on in the 1700s - have not found any of them so far). Our line left Cambs. and came to the US in 1848. Another two young men from our line left Hunts. in the early 1900s and came to Washington state in the US. There are a couple of people from that direct line who also write into this forum.

Another line from Cumberland/Durham has not yet been connected to our Cambs/Hunts line so far but does connect to the Newcastle line of Darwoods.

The lady in Australia researching her husband's "Burmese" Darwood connection to an English military man also has not yet conneccted to the Cambs line - but we are still working on that connection.

Woudl like to correspond.
