is Scottish and/or English in origin. Spelling variations include: Wood, Woods,
Wode, Would, Woid, Voud, Vould and others.
The WOOD family
traces their ancestral roots back to Norman origin before the year 1100. The family
name was first recorded in Dumfriesshire, England, where they held a family seat
from about 1150, after losing their previously held lands in Thorpe Arnold in
Leicestershire under the Earl of Leicester. From here they branched and migrated,
gaining prosperity as a notable family of England and, later, other countries.
The Family Motto on the Coat of Arms is "Defend."
Wood line can be traced back to England, to WILLIAM WOOD, born in 1560 in London,
England. He had a son named JOHN WOOD in Gloucestershire, England, around 1600,
who traveled to America and married MARGARET CARTER around the year 1629. They
had a son named after John's father: WILLIAM WOOD, who was born about 1638 in
Portsmouth, Newport County, Rhode Island. He married MARTHA EARLE of Weymouth,
Norfolk, Massachusetts, and they had a son named JONATHAN WOOD, who was born about
1658 and married MARY TITUS. Mary either died or the marriage dissolved, because
Jonathan then married JANE SMITH of Jamaica, Long Island, Queens County, New York.
