The Threlkeld Surname Project
THE THRELKELD DNA PROJECT is an ongoing initiative open to any Threlkeld (or variant spelling) male descendant. This surname, originally de Threlkeld, was taken by its earliest bearers from the name of their manorial lands, situated in the township of the same name in the county of Cumberland, England. The earliest known record of the use of the surname was by Henry de Threlkeld, who in 1292 was Sheriff of Westmoreland. The Threlkeld lines have been in the U.S. since the 17th-century. Our primary objectives are threefold: - to try to identify and tie together the various Threlkeld lineages, both in the U.S. and England - to confirm or disprove links to the 30+ presumed variant spellings of the surname - to ascertain whether the preponderance of Threlkelds in the U.S. stem from only four or five early immigrants as described in published genealogies Please visit the Project website at http://threlkeld.relatedlines.com for more information.
