: what is the meaning of Greenwood?
Any replies yet? The name Greenwood is a translation of the French name "Boisvert" literally meaning "green wood". It was probably translated form families from Normandy during the Norman invasion of Britain,and as the English language developed and French became less common in use in the courts, the name "Greenwood" wa adopted. Several French names were translated in this same manner...
Any questions?
Joseph
