    The Oklahoma Land Run on April 22, 1889, was the first land rush, or land opened for settlement on a first-come basis, opened to the Unassigned Lands. The land rush lured approximately 50,000 people, saddled with their fastest horses, looking to claim their piece of the newly available two million acres. The requirements included the settler to live and improve on their 160 acres for five years in order to receive the title. Choice land tempted people to hide out and get an early lead on their claim. These people became known as “sooners.” It is estimated that eleven thousand homesteads were claimed. Oklahoma Historical Society - Land Run of 1889

    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.
