Woodside, County Tyrone

Origin

An English name

Background

This is clearly an English name which may well have replaced an earlier Irish name. The lack of any historical forms makes this difficult to confirm. The name might be a borrowing from another Woodside elsewhere, or might make reference to a wooded area which has since been cleared (OSNI).
