Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Bowooode is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in or near the village of Bowood, in the parish of Netherbury in Dorset.

Early Origins of the Bowooode family


The surname Bowooode was first found in Dorset, where the name is associated with the village of Bowood in the parish of Netherbury. In the Domesday Book survey of 1086 Bowood was recorded as lands held by the Bishop of Salisbury. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Bowooode family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bowooodes to arrive in North America: A. Bowde, who arrived in New Jersey in 1664.
