Early Origins of the Wouldmant family
The surname Wouldmant was first found in Yorkshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the manor of Woodmansey. Later another branch of the family was found at Fenrother in Northumberland
. "This place was at an early period held under the barons of Bothal, by the family of Fenrother. In the reign of Henry III., and subsequently, the Herons had possessions here; and among other owners have been the priors of Tynemouth, and the family of Woodman: it is now the property of Mr. Woodman, and the Duke of Portland."
