An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Anglo-Saxon name Snelgrove comes from when the family resided in the location of Snellgrove found in the county of Wiltshire. Snell was a personal name that denoted one who was active and lively. Habitation names form a broad category of surnames that were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Snelgrove Early Origins



The surname Snelgrove was first found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, as Lords of the manor of Redlynch, 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 Snelgrove or a variant listed above:
