|About THE ASHWORTH AND CARDNO FAMILY including TWEEDALES AND CHADWICK
I hope you enjoy my site, as you can see with over 8,000 names on it its is quite extensive. Where possible I have tried to search on census and give as many details as possible. I have spent many hours especially over the winter months in doing this tree. If there are any details that are wrong or if you have additional information please let me know. There is also available through this site a dvd which you can purchase which copies the whole site, it is $37 including postage.(this is a U.S.site)
I do have stories and further photos to put on when I have the time available. The Ashworth originated from Rossendale, a history of that area is in the Stories section. There is information
also on the Chadwicks of Rochdale including the infamous Sir Andrew Chadwick whose fortune is supposedly in Chancery . We have grown up with the story that he saved Queen Ann from a bolting horse and was knighted.As it happens Queen Anne suffered ill health and terrible gout and would not have been able to ride a horse, but she could have been in a carriage. This tale is nothing more than a fable but many generations believed it. He did however join a land lottery with Queen Anne. Many of our family in past years have tried to put claims in on the fortune but alas have failed. I have spent hours finding the connection, I have no documentary evidence to prove it. I will add more information about him in the Stories Section, as I have done on other famous relatives.
I have recently researched from the Chadwicks into the 5th Century, it will take many hours to get all the names on here as there are thousands. I have Kings and Queens, Counts,Barons Lords, Knights, Bishops and even a few Saints not to mention Empress and Princess 's of the Holy Roman Empire. We are also connected to Elizabeth 1st. I am researching Saxons and even the Vikings. As you can imagine there are hundreds of Coats of Arms which will be in a seperate album, at the present time I have only managed to download a few.
I have been determined to reach the Vikings and have done that and now with the King of Wessex in our tree we can now go to King Alfred the Great and down to Royalty.
My other goal was to get back to the 100's AD but I have links to go even further back to BC which I hope to complete soon.
