Early Origins of the Keloe family


The surname Keloe 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."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Migration of the Keloe family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Keloe family name Keloe, or who bore a variation of the surname were R. and W. Kellow settled in Baltimore Maryland in 1822.
