Longworth Family

First Generation

The Longworth family in the Winston-Salem area traces its ancestry back to Francis Longworth of Lancashire, England, who came to America on the "Speedwell of London" in 1635 and settled in Virginia. The first of the family to come to North Carolina was apparently William Burgess Longworth (1765-1840) son of Burgess Longworth (1740-1817) and Mary McKinee (1743-1812), who lived near Richmond VA. William married Elizabeth Nash (1768-1849) in 1786 in Richmond. They first show up in NC census records in 1820, in Stokes County. They lived south of Clemmonsville Road and were charter members of New Friendship Baptist Church in Forsyth County, but are buried at Old Mt. Vernon Methodist.
