Reed Genealogy & History

Reed is an English surname with several different origins. First, there's the Middle English read or red, from Old English read, meaning red, and used for someone with red hair or skin. Then there's the topographical root, from the Old English ried or ryd, meaning a clearing, and used for someone living nearby. Next, it could be locational, from several places named Read or Ree. Reed family history begins with Leofwine Reade, noted in the Old English Bynames of Kent in 1016. Reed genealogy includes many noteworthy individuals, like current Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed, former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed, and forty-year New York Representative Daniel Reed.
