An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Mahood finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a maker of hoods. The surname Mahood is derived from the Old English words hod, hud, hood, and hodde, which all come from the Old English word hod, which means hood. Occasionally, Mahood may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

Mahood Early Origins



The surname Mahood was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Mahood or a variant listed above:
