Dunsworth Family Genealogy Forum
Charles Dunsworth came from Bristol, PA. They were listed as Dungworth/Dunworth. Richard Dungworth(Dunsworth) came over in 1677 (14 yrs old) from London on The Martha and settled in Bristol, PA. He was a rich landowner/millowner. In 1688 he married a Rosina Bringhurst. He had a son named Charles and a daughter named Judith. The son Charles apparently had a son named Charles, the one in TN. His wife was Susanna Melvin. Therefore, the sons on the tree. You will find a wealth of information upon researching the name Dungworth. There is a village in Sheffield, England called Dungworth also. I truly believe the written language of the 1600's, the "s" resembled a "g". They were staunch Methodists also which in the 1600's in England was not well received. Either the writing was misintrepreted on the name or that truly was their name and they changed it due to the meaning of "dung". I was able to find a Dunsworth in Consicliffe, England married to a Norman, Elizabeth Salkheld in 1595. I hope this helps. My research continues as I am located in RI and plan to drive to my previous residence in Newtown, PA (near Bristol) and research some more. There was also a Dungworth mill in Moreland Township, PA in 1680. I am with this tree also decended from Charles' son Thomas. My grandfather is Harold Dunsworth from Kansas my home state. (#69 on the tree?) Hope this helps. Please keep in touch for further updates.
