Hmm...My stepmother (Theresa Dewhurst) has done extensive research, and came up with a slightly different answer: "Dewhurst" means "Deer Park" and was meant to signify that the family were game wardens, of a sort, to the crown or local manor. I'll check with her and see whether her sources were as unimpeachable as those cited here, and will post more later.
