The founding heritage of the Allwould family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Allwould comes from when one of the family worked as a keeper of a hall. The surname Allwould is composed of the elements hall, which denoted one who was employed at such a manor-house or hall, and ward, which was originally applied to one who was a watchman.

Allwould Early Origins



The surname Allwould was first found in Devon, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Allwoulds to arrive in North America: John Alward who settled in Maryland in 1666; Andrew Alward who settled in Boston in 1849. In Newfoundland the family settled in Cape Broyl, Grand Falls and St. John's..
