The home of RUSHWORTH

This is the home page of Edward (or Ted) RUSHWORTH , aged 86, who moved to Edinburgh with his wife Anne in 2008. The website and domain name was the 1998 Christmas gift of our three children, to whom many thanks. It has been used to develop my interests, especially in genealogy on the RUSHWORTH surname and its variants including RUSHFORTH, RISHFORTH, and RISHWORTH.

Bullet Point Our RUSHWORTH and BOOTH ancestors. My RUSHWORTH pedigree goes back to the 13th century, and my wife's BOOTH pedigree to the 17th century. The RUSHWORTHs had been farmers for many generations around Rombalds Moor, better known as Ilkley Moor, at the heart of Yorkshire, England. The BOOTHs had been woollen cloth manufacturers living at Gildersome near Leeds in Yorkshire. Here is the history of their firm - Booth Bros. (Drighlington) Limited.
