Woodvile Early Origins



The surname Woodvile was first found in Northamptonshire at Woodwell, a hamlet about a mile west of the village of Woodford. Some of the first records of the name include: Robert de Wudewelle who was listed in Bedfordshire c. 1240 and Geoffrey de Wodewell who was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Suffolk in 1327. The place name literally means "dweller by the stream or spring in the wood," from the Old English words wuda, wiella. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The parish of Grafton Regis in Northamptonshire was an important family seat of the family. The Manor was the birthplace of Elizabeth Woodville (1437-1492) who married Edward IV in 1464. The Manor later passed to the Grey Marquesses of Dorset, descendants of queen consort Elizabeth Woodville by her first marriage to Sir John Grey.
