Woodman Group: Haplogroup R1b

I just received the results of listing our Henwood with the Woodman Group in familytreedna. Our most distant relative here is Henry Henwood. I listed our line in the Woodman group in England to compare results with our first 12 alleles. Interesting results. Our Henwoods are a match with Hopwood, and a distance of 3 with Easterwood. It looks like a distance of 2 with Wood listed in this group.
I had wondered if the root surname "Wood" would show any connection and it does seem to be so. Perhaps branches tried to distinguish themselves by adding suffixes to their name.
