Woodward Genealogy & History

Woodward is an English occupational surname deriving from the Old English wudu, meaning wood, and weard, for guardian or protector. Thus it means someone employed to steward the forest and its contents. This would include both natural health and poaching and would therefore be a very respected profession. Woodward family history begins with Sewhal le Wudeward, added to the Pipe Rolls of Hampshire in 1208. Woodward genealogy counts quite a few illustrious people in its ranks, such as journalist Bob Woodward, General and New South Wales Governor Eric Woodward, and Nobel laureate in chemistry Robert Woodward.
