Early Origins of the Fauldoe family
The surname Fauldoe 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.

were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Fauldoe family name include Fauld, Faulds, Faldow, Faldo, Faldoe, Fauldo, Fauldow, Fauldhouse, Falder, Fauls, Fawles and many more.

Migration of the Fauldoe family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Fauldoe family to immigrate North America: Bartholomew Faldoe who settled in Massachusetts in 1635.
