    Name Meaning

    English (Norfolk): from Middle English wode ‘wood’ + reue ‘row, row of houses’ (Old English wudu + rǣw, rāw). The surname may be topographic, for some who lived at or near a row of trees, or a row of houses within a wood, or it may be habitational, from any place so named, such as Wood Row in Hatfield Broad Oak (Essex) or Woodrow in Chaddesley Corbett (Worcestershire). There may have been some confusion with Woodruff .
