I'm Searching for Sewells in Worksop

By Margaret Doubell

This article was originally published in the November 1997 edition of Soul Search, the journal of The Sole Society.

My ancestors lived in the Worksop region of Nottinghamshire. My direct line moved to Blyth in the 1830s but the wider family were in Worksop in the late 1500s and most of them stayed there until the late 1800s. By 1881, there were branches in Eckington, Derby and Swinton in Rother, Yorkshire.

By 1908, a Thomas Sewell was in Rutland.

Is anyone else researching this family or has anyone come across SEWELLs born in this area? If so please get in touch with me at:
