Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Alwoold or a variant listed above: 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..
