Wodnote Early Origins



The surname Wodnote was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Wodenote. Cornwall was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany and Wales than to England. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon, Somerset and Dorset. The township of Shavington in Cheshire was home to a branch of the family since early times. "Here stood the manorial seat of the Wodenothes (of whom was John Wodenothe, the antiquary, born in 1624), a mansion highly curious from its age, and the abundance of stained glass and other relics it contained. After remaining in the possession of that family for more than 500 years, the estate was sold in 1661; the house was taken down, and a modern mansion built upon the site, in which some of the ancient glass is preserved."
