Woodham Family History
Woodham Name Meaning
English: habitational name from any of various places named Woodham. Most, as for example those in Essex and Surrey, are named from Old English wudu ‘wood’ + ham ‘homestead’; one in Buckinghamshire, however, probably has as its second element Old English hamm ‘water meadow’, and one in County Durham is from wudum, the dative plural of wudu, originally used after a preposition.
