Currently in the United Kingdom Elliott to Ellwood is about 18 to 1.
Within a Y-DNA grouping referred to as the Daniel Group (my Y-DNA is the Elliott which is boxed), the number of Elliott to Ellwood is 12 to 1. Giving Ellwood a greater but not mathematically significant influence. This shows though a Y-DNA correlation between my Y-DNA grouping referred to as the Daniel Group, to the Ellwood Y-DNA of Cumbria, United Kingdom.
It is felt that Ellwood, of Cumbria is evolve from Elwald-Elwold-Elwoud-Ellwood, where Ellwood retain meaning and means ell woods or a measured forest lot, like ell lot in Scotland meant.
Taking a lot at 1891 distribution for Scotland and England we find;
One can see that the Ellwood mainly of England in 1891, and of the Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria region.
Though not by percent the above shows strong Lancashire-Yorkshire Ellwood placement.
Stag head on sceat/coin of St/King Elfwald minted in York like sheild of Ellwood from Yorkshire;
Density of Ellwood near Croyland, Lincoln County, is felt to migrate towards border, where on Scottish side name Elwald evolved to Ellot.
Ellwood crest has similarities to the Kerr/Wm of Horesleyhill crests (inserted 3/28/2014).
The above shows distribution by percent for the Ellwood. It is felt Elwold is low German, and Elwald is German meaning of the wood(s). The Dutch-German distribution would help to verify this concept.
The migration of the Elwald-Elwold-Elwould to Ellwood, is similar to the Elwald migration accept they basically are not found in Scotland, and have a high probability of being from Cumbria.
York maps with Wold and Would;
In Blaeu 1650 map instead of Wold it is Would, found in Elwold, and Elwould common to Cumbria as seen in;
North of the Scottish Border the name was Elwald. The Y-DNA was cut-off by the Scottish Border, and others of different Y-DNA adopted the surname Elwald, and this is why it can be said that this is the origins of the Elwald-Ellot-Elliot Clan.

Migration from Saxony given Y-DNA;
above provided by RP Elliott
Likely region of migration of most likely Germany above;
Location of Johannes Rucker could be indicative of a Saxony origin.
Note; Elch/Elg (moose) gets along with the Ber/Bär (bear) but not the wolf.
The Berwald (bear of the forest), and the Elchwald (moose of the forest) seem to come from a near locality in Saxony.
It is felt that these people are Angle;
It was said some of the Liddesdale Elwald are Borne-Heede (borne near Heede).

THE Y-DNA FINGERPRINT
Want to dedicate the term Y-DNA Fingerprint, to James V. Elliott as given above was the first to identify the locality. MSE 12/04/2013
Want to thank Robert P. Elliott call my brother german because we share the same Y-DNA, and referred to as the Daniel Group of Elliott.
Given the Traitors/Thieves of Leven, we find the Armstong, Scot, Ker, Rutherford, and Burnes. The Dixon (of Nixon), were known to be of region.

Gives two localities in the United Kingdom, in which my Y-DNA can be located.
1. de (of) Y-DNA is given by 12-marker exact matches on the Y-DNA, to other surnames, and using the mapping localities of these surnames, gave a distribution one would only hit if lightning (leven) struck.
2. Y-DNA fingerprint is based on a grouping first identified by James V. Elliott, maintain the Y-DNA for Clan Elliot, and by information provided by Robert P. Elliott ( “brother german”; one who shares my Y-DNA). Plus the locations of the Dixon (Nixon), Armstrong, Scott, Kerr, Rutherford, and Elwald/Ellot being of the given Y-DNA fingerprint at a given time ca fifteenth century.
It should be noted; that after the Y-DNA progress to Northern Northumbria, and place a Y-DNA fingerprint it was cut off from its origins of the de (of) Y-DNA by placement of the Scottish-English, border making the Y-DNA of the new (in 1320) nation of Scotland over time more prevalent. This gives reason to the results James V. Elliott found on the origins in the Y-DNA fingerprint region, and for the most part this is felt where the greater body of Ellot/Elliot Y-DNA originated. Where the Daniel Group (my Y-DNA) verily squeaked across before border placement (the raising of the draw bridge) bringing the Elwald surname, and forenames of John, William, and Robert with them.

Given likely region of the name Elchwald/Elgwald/Elfwald/Elwald(e) originated.
Shows Scandinavian name localities, which support the migration of my Y-DNA.
