The Wilby Family

The Wilby family can be traced back to Jonathon Wilby who was living in Hartshead in 1680.

Mary Naylor (c1772-1812) Abraham's youngest daughter married Edward Wilby a son of Henry Wilby and great grandson of Jonathon Wilby. Edward was a woolen manufacturer in Dewsbury Moor.

Mary's son-in-law William Wilby (her daughter Ann married a cousin) had business interests in Portugal and established the family home in Oporto. Her grandson Henry Edward Wilby (c1823-1888) was involved in Portuguese over-seas trade.

In the last couple of years, descendants of Edward Wilby and Mary Naylor from all over the world have discovered one another and are active in researching the Wilby family.
