The ancient history of the Woodpine name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided in Lincolnshire. Their name however, translates as the dweller by the woodland stream, and indicates that the original bearer lived near such a waterway.

Woodpine Early Origins



The surname Woodpine was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor some say before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Woodpine Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Woodpine include Woodbine, Woodfine, Woodpine, Wouldbine, Wouldfin and many more.
