    Name Meaning

    English (mainly Yorkshire and Lancashire): habitational name from any of various places called Eastwood, such as in Keighley, Rotherham, or Todmorden (all Yorkshire), or Eastwood in Nottinghamshire. Most of these placenames come from Old English ēast ‘east’ + wudu ‘wood’, but Eastwood in Nottinghamshire originally had as its final element Old Norse thveit ‘clearing’ (see Thwaites ). Compare Astwood .

    English (Devon): from Eastwood in Peters Marland or Inwardleigh (both Devon), named with Middle English bi este wode ‘(place) to the east of the wood’.

    Probably also an Americanized form (translation into English) of Dutch Oostwoud: habitational name from the village Oostwoud in the province of North Holland.
