Name Meaning

English (chiefly Lancashire): habitational name from a place near Manchester, so named from Old English hēah ‘high’ + wudu ‘wood’. There is also a place in Wiltshire so called, from Old English (ge)hæg ‘enclosure’ + wudu. Compare Haywood , although this is probably not the source of the surname.
