About the EFHA


Who we are

The Entwistle Family History Association was set up in 1999 by a group of Entwistles who wanted to find out more about their family roots and to help others who wanted to do the same.

In the Members’ Area

Members are able to access resources on our databases to find out more about their ancestors by using their annual password to gain entry. They can make use of:

    • the Twissle Times archive,
    • a free download of Grimshaw’s history of the Entwistles, “The Entwisle Family”,
    • Excel files containing census records of the Entwistles living in south Lancashire in the 19th century – you can download these by area and search for your ancestors on your own computer,
    • censuses by County. These are listed alphabetically by county, then by town within each county. 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 are not included.
    • Entwistle births, marriages and deaths. EFHA members have transcribed records relating to the UK Entwistle entries in the former General Register Office Index (St Catherine’s Index) for Births, Marriages and Deaths which is now held in the National Archives in Kew, London.
