Henwood History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The present generation of the Henwood family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the tithing of Henwood, which is in the parish of Cumnor in Berkshire. The surname Henwood belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Early Origins of the Henwood family


The surname Henwood was first found in Berkshire, at Henwood. Henwood is also a hamlet in the civil parish of Linkinhorne in east Cornwall.

Henwood Spelling Variations


Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Henwood include Henwood, Enwood and others.

Migration of the Henwood family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Henwood were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
