The Origins of the Medieval Turbevilles of Worcestershire

Author: Humphreys, William

Year published: 2003

Description / Notes:

A thorough and extensive analysis of Turbeville entries in the Calendars of State Papers suggests the probability that the Turbevilles of Worcestershire shared common ancestry with Hardy’s ‘D’Urbervilles’ of Dorset. The criteria that subsequently emerge in an attempt to identify distinct branches of this family highlight the relevance and potential importance of prosopography in modern historical and genealogical writing.
