Goldfynch Early Origins



The surname Goldfynch was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1260 when William Goldfing was recorded as a taxpayer in that shire.
