This interesting surname of Anglo-Saxon origin with variant spellings Sego, Segoe, Segot, Seagood, etc., derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Saegod" meaning "sea-good". The surname dates back to the early 14th Century (see below). Further recordings include Alan Segode (1327), the Subsidy Rolls of Yorkshire, Katerine Seegode (1450) Index of Wills proved in the Rochester Consistory Court, and John Saygude (1473), Register of the Guild in the Corpus Christi in the City of York. Church records include Sarah, daughter of John and Sarah Segoe who was christened on November 10th 1724 in St. James, Clerkenwell, London, Peter, son of John and Sarah Seago who was christened on June 20th 1735 in St. Luke's, Old Street, Finsbury, London and John, son of John and Alice Seago who was christened on April 25th 1763 in St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Westminster. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Adam Segud which was dated 1317, in the "Assize Court Rolls of Kent", during the reign of King Edward 11, known as "Edward of Caernafon", 1307 - 1327. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
