Name Meaning

English: probably a habitational name from a lost or unidentified place named with Old English flēot ‘stream’, ‘estuary’ + wudu ‘wood’. The place of this name in Lancashire got its name in the 19th century from its founder, Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood, and is not the source of the surname.
