The Sallows surname derived from the Middle English word "salwe," which meant a "sallow" tree, which is a kind of willow. As such, the name was most likely originally topographic, used to identify someone who lived near such trees.

Sallows Early Origins



The surname Sallows was first found in Shropshire, where Nicholas de Sallowe was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls for that ancient county, in the year 1254. Another early record of the name is of Robert ate Salwe, in the "Ministers Accounts of the Earldom of Cornwall" for 1297.

Sallows Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Sallows are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Sallows include: Sallis, de Sallis, Salis, de Salis, Salliss, Sallow and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Sallows or a variant listed above:
