Where did the English Bolding family come from? What is the English Bolding family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bolding family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bolding family history?The history of the name Bolding begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the Old English personal name Bealding, which was originally derived from the name Beald.
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Bolding has been recorded under many different variations, including Balding, Baulding, Baldyne, Bolding, Baldyng, Beldyng, Baldinge and many more.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Sto Ro Veritate
Motto Translation: I stand for the truth.
