I asked that this forum be set up as there was not one for this surname. I hope people from all Darwood lines will respond. I am from the line coming from Cambridge, England to Kentucky in about 1848. The family of David Darwood and Mary Ann (Hammond) Darwood with a daughter Ellen/Elenor Darwood Russell and her husband JohnRussell, a son Richard and his wife Ruth (Goodley) Darwood (my line) - and two other sons David and Wm McKendree Darwood.
There seem to be several lines - one coming into the US in the 1700s to the east coast, one line coming through Canada from Scotland in the 1800s, my line and the one with two brothers (Stanley and Wilfred from Huntingdonshire, Eng which is next to Cambridgeshire) coming into Washington state in the early 1900s.
Anyone interested in Darwood genealogy please respond. A. C. Holly
