Where did the English Arrowood family come from? What is the English Arrowood family crest and coat of arms? When did the Arrowood family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Arrowood family history?


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Arrowood has been recorded under many different variations, including Arrowood, Arwood, Arewood, Arowood and others.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Arrowood or a variant listed above:

Arrowood Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • Daniel Arrowood, aged 21, who landed in America, in 1911


  • John S. Arrowood (b. 1956), American attorney and former North Carolina Court of Appeals judge (2007-2008)
