My maiden name was Waterworth and I was brought up in Yorkshire near the border with Lancashire. In my research I too found that we originated in the Martin Mere area which is not too far from Liverpool. As time went by, people began to move away from the area and made their way into Yorkshire, many becoming farmers, as were my family. Some settled in the Leeds area and many on the Yorks - Lancs area. I believe that the majority still live in Lancashire, especially in the Liverpool area.
