The Northway Family

This surname brings a touch of mystery and possible exoticism to the family.

It enters our family tree with my husband's paternal great-grandmother, Sophia Northway, who from my father-in-law's recollection was quite a forceful character! If you want to follow the surname through, her tree is the best place to start.

Family legend has it that she was foreign and came from somewhere like Nice - which explains her relatively unusual first name, though not her English-sounding surname.

Here are the individuals whose trees feature here:

Samuel Northway ????-????
Sophia Northway 1842-????
