Lineage. — According to Lower's Falronymica Brituii-
nka, the Wood families are undoubtedly of Anglo-Saxon
origin, the surname occurring as early as Domesday Book in
the form of De Silva, and as de la Wodb in the Hundred
Rolls. One of the earliest records of the Woods of Poppleton
is to be found in the De Banco Rolls, as William le Wode dc
Nether Poppleton, ^Oiip. 22 Edwakd III. (a.d. 1349). Fioni
Parish registers and other deeds, we gather that this was a
yeoman family possessed of land in the parishes of Poppleton
and Hessay, co. York, where they have been resident for some
generations. Though it would appear that the de la Wode
family originally sprang from Almonbury, near Leeds, 1200,
the ancient escutcheon of whom is still to be found in the
church of this parish, namely a shield sa. on a benu arg.
three fleurs-de-lis of the field.

singore, near Wctherley, co. York, b. circa 1G70, and was bur.
