The Goldington surname is most likely derived from the name of the parish of Goldington, in county Bedford.

Goldington Early Origins



The surname Goldington was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. The surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Goldington, a part of Bedford, held by Ivo Tailbois, as under tenant, from the Bishop of Lincoln who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. The parish of Stanstead St. Margaret's in the union of Ware in Hertfordshire was home to a branch of the family at early times. "A college, or chantry, for a master and four secular priests, was founded at Stanstead in 1315, by Sir William de Goldington, Knt., in consequence of the impoverishment of the tithes and rights of the church; but it was dissolved in 1431, from neglect, and misapplication of its revenue."
