From another 'Kellow' from England thank you Douglas for an interesting and informative posting of your visit with your findings.
For a further article on the Durham village of Kelloe and also a certain 'prince' Bishop of Durham etc. (In some recorded listing of the Bishops of Durham his name is recorded as Bishop Richard Kellow as well as this articles referal of 'Kellaw') look at www.theclarion.co.uk/the_north_east/history/echomemories/durham/405/051005.html

By the way I live in Dorset (nearer to Cornwall to visit than Durham) When visiting Cornwall recently found an area known as 'Kellow' this is near the Southern coastal harbour town of Looe with the adjoining smaller town named Polperro,and just above Polperro is this area named Kellow containing 'Kellow Hill', 'West Kellow Farm' and 'East Kellow Farm' to my knowledge no other area at all in this country has this actual spelling.
Could not find any locals who could provide any clue to its origins but am determined to re visit in the future to try to find out more unless anyone out there knows more??
Kind regards Derek Kellow
