FLOOD Family History

This interesting surname with variant spellings Flood, Floud, Fludd, Flude, Floyd, Floyde, Floyed, etc. is either an English topographical name for someone who lived by a small stream or an intermittent spring, deriving from the Old English pre 7th Century "flod(e)", from "flowan" meaning "to flow", or, it is a dialectal variant of the welsh name Lloyd, a nickname for a person with grey hair or who habitually dressed in grey, from the Welsh "Llwyd" "grey". The surname dates back to the late 12th Century, (see below). Further recordings include one Roger Flod (circa 1200) "Documents illustrative of the Social and Economic History of the Danelaw", and John de la Flode (1273) "The Hundred Rolls of Hampshire"...
