Golda Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Golda family name include Gould, Goold, Gold, Gilder and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Golda surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Nathaniell Gould, who settled in Virginia in 1620; Ann Gould, who settled in Maryland in 1651; Jeremiah Gould, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1637; Mary Gould, who arrived in Boston in 1640.
