WILLOWS Family History

This is an English residential or perhaps occupational surname. It may originate from one of the various places in England called 'The Willows', or even a place such as Newton le Willows in Lancashire, or it may describe a supplier of willow. This was a wood which was much used in ancient time both for flooring and for roofing.The various dictionaries of surnames all suggest that for most people it was a residential name, and this is born out by the early recordings. Locational surnames were generally amongst the first to become hereditary.
