Origen: Normando. Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Dashwood is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Dashwood, and held a family seat at Cockley Cley. The place-name literally means de Ashwood, which in the English form is Ashwood. After the Norman Conquest, the usual preposition was de, which was used in both English and French place-names. In French names beginning with a vowel, the de was often merged with the name. An example of this procedure is the surname Dashwood. The bearer of this surname lived by or in an area of forest that contained ash trees. First found in Norfolk where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
