Worsley Baronets Connection?
« on: Wednesday 12 December 18 21:48 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to see if any of my Worsley ancestors are connected to any of the aristocratic Worsley families in Lancashire.
The furthest that I've got back (fairly confidently) is Ralph Worsley (b.1758 in manchester and m.10/03/1783 to Juday Taylor in Prestwich), I believe that his father was a Jonathan Worsley who was also the innkeeper at the Saracens head in Manchester (found this out from an old court record). Jonathan was married in 1757 to an Elizabeth Travis and died in 1761 in manchester.

One of the reasons I think their could be a link is the name Ralph, pretty unusual at the time but was the name of several members of the Worsleys of Platt Hall family who lived in the same area.
I've struggled to go back any further than Jonathan, anyone got any input?

Thanks in advance everyone,

Research Intrests.
Manchester:Fraser, Jennings, Reid, Worsley
