In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the ancestors of the Woodpink surname lived in Lincolnshire. Their name however, translates as the dweller by the woodland stream, and indicates that the original bearer lived near such a waterway.

Woodpink Early Origins



The surname Woodpink 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.

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 Woodpink or a variant listed above: William Woodfine, with his wife Elizabeth and son William, who settled in Barbados in 1679. In Newfoundland, Richard settled in St. John's in 1783; Richard settled in Devil's Cove in 1821.
