Kellow History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Kellow family


The surname Kellow was first found in Durham at Kelloe, a parish, partly in the union of Durham, and partly in that of Easington. "The manor of Kelloe, which is situated near the road from Stockton to Durham, and comprises about 1500 acres, appears to have given name to the family of Kelloe or Kellaw, of whom Richard de Kellaw, a native of the parish, was Bishop of Durham in 1311."

Migration of the Kellow family to the New World and Oceana


The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Kellow surname who came to North America were:
