Early Origins of the Killo family
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 Killo family to the New World and Oceana
The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. 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." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Killo family, or who bore a variation of the surname Killo were R. and W. Kellow settled in Baltimore Maryland in 1822.
