About Thomas Southworth, of Samlesbury

Another son, Thomas, and his wife, Rosamond Lister, had seven sons and four daughters, who were living in 1595 when their grandfather made his will mentioning them. Two of these children were Thomas and Edward who were in Leiden, Holland in 1613 where many Protestants were gathering because Holland allowed freedom of religion while England required unyielding allegiance to the Church of England.Thomas Southworth, Esq. remained in Holland while others of the family came to America. It is suspected that he did not make the trip that he had intended to make because one of his friends sent him a letter talking about the harrowing voyage on his ship, the Speedwell, which was originally supposed to accompany the Mayflower to the new world. This original letter telling a terrifying account of its shortened trip is now in the possession of the Mayflower Society, and makes interesting reading.

Sir Thomas Southworth is a direct decendent and bloodline of the kings of England, Scotland, France, and Norse Kings from Denmark/Norway.


Two separate identified family blood lines run to the Plantagenet kings through the strong Southworth family line, either from King Edward I or King Edward III. One of these English royalty lines begins with Elizabeth of England (Sir Thomas Southworth's 7th great grandmother) and her father King Edward I "Longshanks" of England (reign 1272-1307ad) Thomas' 8th great grandfather. Through the Edward I line, Sir Thomas Southworth is a direct decendent and blood line of the House of Mercia, House of Wessex, House of Normandy, and the House of Plantagenet (Angevin).
