John Dewhurst, of Dewhurst, gent. a juror in 1597, a recorded freeholder in 1600, was taxed on his lands in Wilpshire to a subsidy in 1610. A plaint in the Palatine Chancery Court, in 1609, by Gyles Whalley of Broadhead in Mellor, yeoman, sets forth that John Dewhurst the elder, of Mickle-heyes, being seased in his demesne as of freehold, and during the term of his life and the lives of John and William his sons, of parcels of land in Mickle-heyes in Rishton by lease made unto John Dewhurst by Ralph Rishton of Ponthalgh, gent, the said John Dewhurst for the sum of L 30 paid to him by Edward Whalley, brother of suppliant, of Stoppen-hey in Lipshire (Wilpshire), conveyed, in 4th James I (1606), the said closes of land to Edward Whalley for 12 years. John Dewhurst married Grace, daughter and heir of Henry Boyes of Boyes House (she died in 1619 and was buried at Ribchester) and had issue, sons William born in 1587, and John, and daughters Ellen, wife of Richard Banester of Craven, Mary wife of George Southworth of Highfield, Esq, and Ann.
