Dow Genealogy & History

Dow comes from the Welsh word daw, a pet name for David, derived from the biblical Hebrew for friend. A secondary meaning is derived from dawe, denoting a jackdaw (a black bird), thus a dark-skinned or dark-haired person. Some of the different spellings include McDow, Dove, Dowes, Doves, and Daw. Dow family history has William Dowe in the Pipe Rolls of Northamptonshire, England, as the first known recording of the name in 1194. Some members of Dow genealogy includes New Jersey Attorney General Paula Dow; actor, film producer, and sculptor Tony Dow; and Dow Chemical Company founder Herbert Henry Dow.
