Woods Family Crest, Coat of Arms   

Spelling variations include: Wood, Woods, Wode, Would, Woid, Voud, Vould and others.

First found in Dumfriesshire where they held a family seat since about 1150 after losing their previously held lands in Thorpe Arnold in Leicestershire under the Earl of Leicester.

Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: Thomas Wood and his family who had settled in Virginia before the "Mayflower" in 1620 and within the next 50 years other Wood and Woods had settled in Boston, Maryland, Salem, and the Barbados.
