About The Suthers Family of Todmorden
This is the main family tree of the Suthers families of Stansfield, Langfield, Todmorden, 
Walsden and Wadsworth in the counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire, England.

The first family member to settle in Todmorden was Robert SUTHERD, who settled at Shore in the 
township of Stansfield (in the ancient parish of Halifax, West Yorkshire), sometime before 1685. 
Robert was descended from the SUTHWORTH (Southworth) family of Edenfield (near Bury, Lancashire) 
that flourished there in the early 1600's.

The Suthworth family of Edenfield is included in this family tree, beginning with Thomas "of 
Andrewes" Suthworth of Edenfield Lane, the oldest identified ancestor. He had a son named Andrew, 
and it is anticipated that Thomas' father might have also been called "Andrew", hence the 
nickname "of Andrewes".

From this family tree emerged the surnames SUTHARD/SUTHERD/SUTHERS (in Todmorden, Yorkshire), 
SUTHERST/SUTHURST (in Bury & Haslingden, Lancashire), SUDDERS (in Blackburn & Burnley, Lancashire) 
and SUDDARDS (in Bradford, Yorkshire). In Stansfield and Todmorden, the family name gradually 
changed from SUTHERD to SUTHERS, and the name SUTHERD virtually ceased to exist after 1756. Some 
alternative name spellings (or misspellings) that might be encountered in written records are 

Many thanks go to all the people who contributed directly or indirectly to the 
development of this family tree (which began about 1996) including Linda Espeut, Douglas Wilson, 
Wendy Stansfield, Graeme Suthers, Jean Sanderson, Peter Suthers, Barbara Suthers, Keith 
Suthers, Jason Suthers, J David Suthers and many many more.

Some dates preceding 1752 are entered with two years (eg: 22 Feb 1739/1740). This is 
standard notation for entering dates using both the Julian calendar (old style) and 
Gregorian calendar (new style) format, where the first year refers to the old 
calendar and the second year refers to the present Gregorian calendar. I have 
generally assumed that pre-1752 dates extracted from the IGI were in the Julian 
Calendar format, and I have converted them to OS/NS format. Steve Suthers 29 Mar 2011.
