Descendants of William Woodworth,  born 1776 in Quebec

           This Woodworth descendancy group is from William Woodworth born in Quebec, Canada, 11 Mar 1776, son of an English soldier, first name unknown.   DNA from this group shows that William b 1776 is genetically unrelated to Walter Woodworth b abt 1612 of Scituate.  

          The parents of William b 1776 may have been found.  Keith Berry of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada has found a William Woodworth, son of John and Hannah (Bailey) Woodworth, born 11 Feb, 1776 (record from Church of England, All Saint's Church, Wellington, Shropshire, England).  (See Rootsweb archives)  The date of birth for the two Williams differ by exactly one month, which is not an unusual error.  Dual recordings of births and deaths in the "old home town" and a present residence was common, and thus William's birth could easily have been recorded in both Quebec and in Shropshire, England.   However, this prospect for William's parents has not been confirmed and requires more research.  The old naming convention of that day suggests that William's first son George should have John instead, and that decreases the likelihood that William's parents have been found.

          William is buried in Lunenberg, NS, "St. John in the Wilderness Cemetery", New Germany, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, which provides birth and death dates.

          Considerable information is provided by Andrew Woodworth (click here) and by Jeanette Behan in her newsletters 2, 3, 4, and 5 (installments all  towards the end of each newsletter).

The DNA of William has not yet been clearly established.  The DNA of those tested have been inconsistent, with three tested not matching one another.  More male descendants of William, with documented lines,  need to have their DNA tested so that William's DNA can be established.
