Entwistle Hall, Entwistle, Lancashire, England - Early 20th Century Photogrph - source: The Entwistle Family by Bannister Grimshaw, 1924

The original hall (Old Living) is reputed to have been built in 1200 by Robert de Entwisle, around the time that Entwistle became a township in its own right. The present day hall (illustrated here circa early 20th century) was re-built in the 15th century. In 1657 it was divided into three separate dwellings, as it remains today.

Our New Forum: A new improved Forum has now been added to the EFHA web site. This is the first stage of our web development programme aiming to improve communication and research resources for our members. Members will need to Register to use this Forum with a User Name and Password. Save these in a safe place and remember, these will be different to your Member Login details. Also, remember this is an Open Forum - open to non-members as well as members. At a later date we will be adding more resources which are entirely member based, allowing communication between members-only, including facilities to display and exchange research and family tree data.

Other counties with a larger number of Entwistles will appear later as a separate list. Note: Cheshire, Derbyshire, Durham, Essex, Hampshire, Kent, Lancashire, Middlesex, Staffordshire, Surrey and Yorkshire not included.

Article added - The Loyd, Entwistle Bank - The private bank, Loyd, Entwistle & Co, late of King Street, Manchester, developed from a tea merchant's business in Manchester. It's history can be traced back to 1771. Acquired by the District Bank in 1863, the bank was eventually owner by the National Westminster Bank and subsequently the Royal Bank of Scotland. The branch was closed in the early 1990s. Correspondence on Decimal Coinage

The Entwistle Family History Association (EFHA) is a registered member of the Guild of One-Name Studies - Entwistle, Entwisle, Entwhistle. A one-name study is a project researching all occurrences of a surname, as opposed to a particular pedigree (ancestors of one person) or descendancy (descendants of one person or couple). Some "one-namers" may restrict their research geographically, perhaps to one country, but true one-namers collect all occurrences world-wide. The Guild only accepts true one-name studies for registration, although anyone with an interest in one-name studies is welcome to become a member. Send us your information on the Entwistles world-wide!
