Goals

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about our surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

My own Hetherington branch lived in Ossett, West Riding of Yorkshire in the first half of the 1800s - other branches are in Ireland, America and Cumbria.

This Name Study was set up on behalf of the Hetherington Clan Facebook Group where we post items which may be of interest to other members. Please do join us there.
