Name Meaning

English (Midlands): habitational name from any of various places, for example in Herefordshire. Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, and Staffordshire, so called from Old English (ge)hæg ‘enclosure’ + wudu ‘wood’. It was a common practice in the Middle Ages for areas of woodland to be fenced off as hunting grounds for the nobility. This name may have been confused in some cases with Hayward and perhaps also with the name Hogwood (of uncertain origin, possibly a habitational name from a minor place).
