I am David Cawthra, aged 26. I was born in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, UK. My father is Ian (Car Sales owner), his father was Hubert (Navy Cook) and his father was Harry (a minor), as far as I know. I know live in Hertfordshire just north of London but my family originated from Hightown in Cleckheaton. There is a strong base of Cawthra's in Yorkshire but pleased to see that our history has spread to further afield such as Canada. I am interested in the origins of the name and anyone who seems to have any history related to my immediate family. That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to hear from anyone else who has the association with our proud name, especially those overseas.
