In Reply to: ELLWOOD vs. ELLINGWOOD by Doug Sinclair of 295

Hi: I am an Ellinwood from MA and I would like to say in my search I have located one
family member with Ellingwood,and another as
Ellenwood or Ellinwood. If we are all connected to Ralph born 1607 in England I want to say that the ship "Truelove, 1635"
lists "Ralph Ellwood age 28 yrs." So through
the generations the name has changed due to
who spelled it and how much education they had. I am sure you know that people back then spelled as it sounded.
Thanks for your time.
