The Golding surname finds its earliest origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name is derived from the Old English personal name which means son of Goldwin, which literally means friend of gold.

The surname Golding was first found in Essex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Golding are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Golding include: Goulding, Golding and others.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Golding or a variant listed above:
