The Anglo-Saxon name Dashwooyd comes from when the family resided in Dashwood, and held a family seat at Cockley Cley. The place-name literally means de Ashwood, which in the English form is Ashwood. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
After the Norman Conquest, the usual preposition was de, which was used in both English and French place-names. In French names beginning with a vowel, the de was often merged with the name. The bearer of this surname lived by or in an area of forest that contained ash trees.

Early Origins of the Dashwooyd family


The surname Dashwooyd was first found in Norfolk at Cockley Cley, a small village and parish. However, some of the family were found at Kirtlington in Oxfordshire in early days. "The east end of the south aisle forms the sepulchral chapel of the Dashwood family, who have a mansion in the parish [of Kirtlington]." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Migration of the Dashwooyd family to the New World and Oceana


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 Dashwooyd or a variant listed above: Mary, Robert, Sophia, Thomas and Thomas Junior Dashwood all arrived in New York in 1820.
