Killoh Early Origins



The surname Killoh 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.
