Early Origins of the Gladden family


The surname Gladden was first found in Staffordshire and Lincolnshire where Gladuin(e) was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

While both counties are listed in the Domesday Book, Staffordshire was the county that had the first listing for the family: Glad(e)wine was listed at Burton, Staffordshire c. 1113. A few years later, Henry and Peter Gladwine were listed at Winton, Hampshire in 1148 and Robert Gledewyne was later listed in the Assize Rolls of Kent in 1317. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
