The name Auldand is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in an enclosed place. The surname Auldand literally means dweller at the old enclosure or dwelling.

Auldand Early Origins



The surname Auldand was first found in Essex, Suffolk and Yorkshire at Aldham. In all cases, the place name meant "the old homestead," or "homestead of a man called Ealda," from the Old English personal name + "ham." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Auldand family emigrate to North America: Daniel Aldam aged 27 who settled in Maryland in 1775.
