Frowd Early Origins



The surname Frowd was first found in Devon, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. There is a record in the Domesday Book of a Frodo, who was living at Bury St. Edmunds, and whose son is documented as Gilbert filius Frodonis or Fit-Froude.

Frowd Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Froud, Froude, Frowd, Frowde, Frude, Frood and others.
