Greenwood Genealogy & History

Greenwood is an ancient British surname deriving from the Old English grene (the green sward) + wudu (a wood). The Greenwode settlement near Heptonstall, a lost medieval village in West Yorkshire, was the home of Wyomarus de Greenwode, thought to be the primary ancestor of the British Greenwood family. Variants found in the Greenwood genealogy include Greenwoode, Greanwood, Grunewood, Greenwude, Greenewude, and numerous others. An early colonist to New England was John Greenwood, who sailed from London to Virginia in 1634 at the age of 16. Notable members of the modern Greenwood family history include Chester Greenwood of Farmington, Maine, who invented the earmuff.
