WHITLOW Family History

Recorded as Whitlow and Whitloe, this is an English locational surname. It originates from the village of Whitlow in the county of Northumberland. The village is first recorded in the year 1272 as "Witloe", from the pre 7th century Olde English words "whit" meaning white, and "hlaw", a hill. Locational surnames are by their nature "from" names. That is to say names given to people after they left their original homestead to live somewhere else. The easiest way to identify such strangers was to call him or sometimes her, by the name of the place from whence they came.
