Surnames/tags: Hemsworth Frauds and Fabrications
The Hemsworth pedigree does not appear in early Visitations and first mention was made in the Visitation of 1612. The error was no doubt made by the Herald as it is difficult to believe that Gabriel Hemsworth would not know the name of an older brother George.
Burke's Landed Gentry entry for Hemsworth of Monk Fryston (1937) has no doubt used the Visitations and the erroneous pedigree produced in 1877, which has resulted in more errors.
As there are obvious errors, caution should be used for all Hemsworth research.
