AdminHistorySearles Valentine Wood (1798 – 1880) was an English palaeontologist.

Wood was born on 14 February 1798. In 1811 he became a midshipman in the British East India Company's service, which he left in 1826. He was particularly interested in the study of mollusca of the Newer Tertiary (now Neogene) of Suffolk and Norfolk, and the Older Tertiary (Eocene) of the Hampshire Basin. He published A Monograph of the Eocene Bivalves of England (1861–1871), issued by the Palaeontographical Society, and also 'A Monograph of the Crag Mollusca' (1848–1856). He was awarded the Wollaston medal in 1860 by the Geological Society of London for the latter publication; a supplement was issued by him in 1872-1874, a second in 1879, and a third (edited by his son) in 1882. He died at Martlesham, near Woodbridge, on 26 October 1880.
