Harrowwood Early Origins



The surname Harrowwood was 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.

Harrowwood Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Harrowwood has been spelled many different ways, including Arrowood, Arwood, Arewood, Arowood and others.

The Great Migration



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 Harrowwoods to arrive in North America: Nellie Arwood, aged 21, who arrived at Ellis Island from W. Croyden, England, in 1923; Daniel Arrowood, aged 21, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1911.
