Elsworth Family Genealogy Forum
I have a few references to a Frederick and Benjamin Elsworth (or Ellsworth...spelling seems inconsistent) in the Slade Ledgers for the period 1770's to 1780's. As far as I know, the Slade brothers was a large fishing house in Dorset, and many people initially came to Newfoundland to fish for the season, before settling there.
I also have reference to a Thomas Ellsworth, who came over on a ship (the John")from Poole in the first six months of 1811, in the employ of George Garland.
Perhaps I am not remembering my geographic references correctly on this.
