I am interested in the NORTHOVER family name. I am from Washington State and I believe My GGGrandFather came from that area. Peter Northover PhD a Senior Research Fellow at Oxford found some documentation. He wrote me the following "In that connection I am now certain I have identified the right William Northover. He was baptised in Hinton St Mary, Dorset, in 1829, which matches his age of 22 in the Hudson's Bay Co. records and for one of the Censuses." My GGGrandFather's name was William Northover and he left England in the late 1840's or 1850's. He was hired by the Hudson's Bay Fur Company. He shows up in the US census of 1860: 25 Jul 1860, Steilacoom Post Office, Pierce County Washington. Name Age Born William Northover 32 England Jane 5 Pierce County Emily 3 " John 1 " The above were his kids ... do not know why they did not list his wife ... she was a 'half breed' ... part French-Irish-Native American Indian ... they did not count back in those days thanks john northover San Diego CA . [ John Northover ]

Northover, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Northover (born c. 1862) left Dorset I think in the 1870s to live in Moses Gate / Bolton as a domestic worker.  I think (but am not certain) her father was called Henry and tales of smugglers were passed down to us.  Here in Horwich Bolton.  I hope that if anyone is related to me ( guessing around Burton Bradstock or Poole) that Elizabeth's leaving will be recorded somewhere and that I have lots of cousins. Many thanks to you. [ Peter Jones ]
