According to Lincolnshire Pedigrees, Vol. II, the will of William Harwood who m. Elizabeth Grenham was proven 30 April 1600. (

He likely died in Thurlby. He certainly did not die in Virginia.

Further, there is no known connection to the Whorwoods of Staffordshire.

William Whorwood who m. (1) Cassandra Grey, and (2) Margaret Brooke, had no male heirs. See Burke (; History of Parliament (

William Whorwood II is an invention, as is his wife Agnes.

Harwood-721 and Harwood-1 appear to represent the same person because: These two profiles have the same name. One of the profiles has no other information so there is nothing to dispute and no reason not to merge these two.
