Willoughbys of my line go back to 18th century in MD,then immigrated to NC and then Ky. Iassume you are looking for more recent info, but I do not have any on your inquiry if that is what you need.

Any information on Willoughby in St. Mary's County Md. 1700's? I have Willoughby Nugent son of Robert & Ann Nugent. Feel the given name of Willoughby came from a parent or grandparent's surname.

I have an ancestor, Nancy Willoughby who was married to my 3 Gr. Grandfather, James Hughes ca. 1790. I believe they lived in Caroline or Queen Anne's Co. MD. She died in 1815. He was born Feb 1770 and died in 1826.
I know the Hughes line well but have no info on the Willoughbys. When and where were they married and/or buried.
Hope someone can help.

Surnames: Willoughby, Chambers
Interesting, my grandmothers name was Blanche Chambers Willoughby. She was born in 1884 in Iowa and died in 1970 in Southern California at the age of 84, so I don't think she could be your Mom. I don't know anything about her husband, my grandfather, my Mother told me he died and she never knew him but in the 1930 Census it shows that they were divorced. If in fact they were divorced, perhaps he went on, remarried, had children, used the same name which was carried on in his family, but that is quite a stretch! His name was Earl Willoughby and they were married in Lake City, Iowa. They were married for a very short time.
Good Luck!

I too am looking for Willoughby's born in Maryland in 1790's.

Rodolphus Willoughby born 1792
Moved to Marion County, Mississippi. Served as Court Clerk, Justice of the Peace and Deputy Sheriff. He owned 1/4 of the town of Columbia, Mississippi. He wrote three letters to Govenor Pettus regarding price gouging during the War Between the States. He served the Confederate States of America as a postal carrier and gave food and clothing to soldiers. His five sons all served as soldiers. He died 26 July 1869 in Columbia, Marion County, Mississippi. I have no idea where he got the money to make such a move, or why such a well educated man would up and move to what was total wilderness. But he did, and he left a lot of descendants who would like to know more about the family he left behind.
Rodolphus Willoughby married Catherine Cooper Oliver. She was first married to Charles Oliver. Her parents were John Cooper and Abigil Bobo.
I believe Rodolphus Willoughby was in Indiana prior to coming to Marion County, Mississippi. There was a child named Rodolphus Willoughby Stanton
