Vivian spells the family name as 'Worthyale' whilst the only cross-reference we have found from another family spells it as 'Worthall'. Somewhat arbitrarily, we give precedence to the spelling used by Westcote. The similarity in name suggests the possibility that the family was connected to that shown on Worthevale1.
