Re: Query origination of surname "Alligood"
Doubt it. I among others of the Alligood, Ellegood, Elligood line have researched our line and it seems that the name Alligood, etal evolved by the English spelling a french name,LeGardo, phonically.But there again someone could have reversed the all, ell and good. What are the dates of birth, death, etc on your Henry? Any wills or other legal documents with dates etc. Info I have on Henry Elligood, is born abt 1650, died 1721. Descendants were Thomas Ward, Benoni, Hancock, and Sophia.Let me know if any of this fits into your line.
