Sellwood History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Sellwood family


The surname Sellwood was first found in Somerset at Selwood which dates back to c. 894 where it was listed as Seluudu and probably meant "wood where swallow-trees grow." Alternatively, the name could have derived from Selworthy, also in Somerset, a small village and civil parish in the hundred of Carhampton which dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Seleuurde and literally meant "enclosure or settlement near sallow-trees" from the Old English sele + worth [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

. At that time the lands were held by Ralph de Limesy.
