SNOW Family History

Recorded in several forms including Snow, Snowe, Snows, and the occupational Snowman, Snoweman, and Snowesman, this very interesting surname is of early English origins. Although a nickname it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with "snow" except in a transferred sense. It is in fact a description either of a person with a very pale complexion, or it denotes someone with fair or white hair. It could therefore be a nationalistic description of a Norseman, as the derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th Century "snow" meaning snow.
