The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest
of 1066 brought the Fauldo family name to the British Isles. They lived in Staffordshire
, where they were Lords of the Manor of Fauld.
Early Origins of the Fauldo family
The surname Fauldo 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.

Fauldo Spelling Variations
A multitude of spelling variations
characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England
also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Fauld, Faulds, Faldow, Faldo, Faldoe, Fauldo, Fauldow, Fauldhouse, Falder, Fauls, Fawles and many more.

Migration of the Fauldo family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families left England
, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Fauldo or a variant listed above: Bartholomew Faldoe who settled in Massachusetts in 1635.
