Early Origins of the Killoe family
The surname Killoe 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." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Killoe family to the New World and Oceana

Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Killoe surname who came to North America were: R. and W. Kellow settled in Baltimore Maryland in 1822.
