I have the Family Name Origin for Wood.I am using it as the back page of my family genealogy book.It is quite lengthy so I will give you the descriptions it provides;
"Wood was derived from the Old English 'Wode' - dweller in or near a wood.Common to every medieval register all over the country...
...Joseph Wright (1734 - 97) painted Italian and English landscapes and portraits.His painting of 'The Wood Children' shows Robert, John and Mary, whose parents were Hugh and Sarah Wood of Swanwick, Derbyshire.The painting is in the Derby Museum of Art Gallery.The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory, Ulster King of Arms in 1884. ARMS - Azure three woodmen proper, each armed with a club over the right shoulder and a shield in front there from a cross gules head and waist encircled with a wreath vert all standing on ground proper. CREST - An oak tree proper MOTTO - Pro Patria - For my country"
I hope this helps some and I will work on either making copies or typing the entire context when I get more time.
