Kellow Family Genealogy Forum
I was very interested to read the discussions about the origins of the KELLOW name. It'd certainly seem that one "clan" of KELLOWs originated in Cornwall. The name KELLOW signifies a grove, or clump of trees from the old Cornish language. I know of two Cornish villages with KELLOW in their name (though there may be more):
East Kellow and West Kellow are small hamlets roughly midway between Looe and Polperro on the Cornish south coast (an area infamous for its smugglers!), and there is still a farm there called "West Kellow Farm" which, I believe, may be found on the internet as they do holiday accommodation.
On the other hand, my father (who is Scots) says that there are a number of Scottish KELLOWs and KELLOs, who presumably are unconnected to the Cornish line.
