About Our Family Research

The SHAWFORTH surname that orginated in 1874 in the Lancashire / West Riding of Yorkshire border town of Todmorden.

The site contains my ancestry of the SHAWFORTH surname via my mother Amy.

Of relevance for the origin of the SHAWFORTH surname are Shaver, Schaver, Schaffer, Sutcliffe, Smith and Fielden.

  • Shawforth Family Geneaolgy (1878 KB)
    My belief is that all SHAWFORTHS currently living with the surname or any family via marriage into this name in the past are all related and from Joseph Shaver (sic) born 10 May 1850 in Knowlwood, Walsden, Lancashire.
