Surnames: Witherington, Withington
Has anyone by chance run across the surname Witherington, also perhaps spelled Withington, in their genealogical research in of Sussex County, VA. Hampton, or Isle of Wight
counties might also be places where this name might appear.
Any help in pointing me towards a likely repository where i might find some information would be very welcome. Thanks in advance.

Hi Kjell...This is a long shot...I am writing because of your last name...I am trying to track down my Grotland ancestors...what I know is that my gggrandmother's name was Caroline (Kari) Andersdatter (Anderson) Grotland...b. November 08, 1844 in Voss, Norway and d. August 28, 1934 in Decorah, Iowa...she is buried at Madison Lutheran Cemetary, Madison Twp., Winn. Co., IA...Kari was married to Johannes Hermundson Fretheim (1836-1917)...They were married in the USA (probably Allamakee Co. or Winnesheik Co.) Her first of 10 children which include both surname Fretheim and Herman was born in 1864...
...There is an Anders Grotland and an Anderson Grotland listed as being in the book "Historien om utvandringa frå Voss og Vossingane i Amerika" but I haven't found a way to get that information...Are they (or Kari) in your ancestry by any chance?...
I hope you don't mind me asking...I realise that pulling your name out of the blue is ridiculous but...
...If you can offer any help I would really appreciate it...
Thankyou
