The name Faldo was brought to England by the Normans when they conquered the country in 1066. The ancestors of the Faldo family lived in Staffordshire, where they were Lords of the Manor of Fauld.

Faldo Early Origins



The surname Faldo was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Fauld. Conjecturally they are descended from Hubert and Robert of Fauld, father and son Norman nobles, who held their lands at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086 from Henry de Ferrers.

Faldo Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Faldo are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Faldo include Fauld, Faulds, Faldow, Faldo, Faldoe, Fauldo, Fauldow, Fauldhouse, Falder, Fauls, Fawles and many more.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Faldo, or a variant listed above: Bartholomew Faldoe who settled in Massachusetts in 1635.
