Gealdham Early Origins



The surname Gealdham was first found in Essex where the family name was first referenced in the year 1178 when Gilbert de Geldham (Norman) held lands. We draw the reader's attention to the parish of Great Saling. "The village is pleasantly situated on a green of triangular form, comprising about five acres. The church is supposed to have been erected in the reign of Henry II., and contains monuments to the Yeldham, Goodrich, and Sheddon families. Formerly, the two parishes of Great Saling and Little or Bardfield Saling were one district; and at the time of the Domesday Survey they belonged to the same lord." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
