The name Milwude is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was taken on by someone who worked as a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Milwude is derived from the Old English word mylenweard. This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner predominates.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Henry Milward, who arrived in Virginia in 1622 with his wife, child, and sister; David and James Milward settled in Boston in 1652; Thomas Milward settled in New England in 1630.
