Linwood Early Origins



The surname Linwood was first found in Lincolnshire at Linwood, a parish, in the union of Caistor, S. division of the wapentake of Walshcroft. This parish dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was known as Lindude. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
Literally the parish meant "lime-tree wood" from the Old English words "lind" + "wudu." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

"This place was formerly the residence of the Lynwoods, of whom William, who died in 1446, was bishop of St. David's, and keeper of the privy seal under Henry VI." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The Lingwood variant probably originated in Lingwood, Norfolk having derived from the the Old English words "hlinc" + "wudu," collectively meaning "wood on a blank or slope." The earliest record of this parish was in 1199 when it was known as Lingewood. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Early rolls revealed Richard de Lindewude in the Registrum Auntquissimum (1196-1203); and John de Lyndewode in the London Assize of Nuisance in 1334. Later again, Thomas Lynwood was listed in the Register of Freemen of York in 1437. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]
