A branch of this family was seated at Micklehey in Rishton. John Dewhurst of Micklehey, son of John of Dewhurst, had sons John, James born in 1617, and several daughters. John Dewhurst of Micklehey died in Mar 1653-4. another John Dewhurst of Micklehey died in Nov 1676. Thomas Dewhurst of Micklehey occurs in 1629. He had a son, Thomas, born in 1622 and other issue.
This concludes the Dewhurst of Wilpshire line from the book "History of Blackburn Town and Parish" by Wm. Alexander Abram, put 1877 in Blackburn by JG&J Toulmin. I found a copy of the book at the Family History Library in SLC. It was not on microfilm at that time.
