Origins Available: English, French


The distinguished surname Magdelin is derived from the Hebrew "Magdalen," meaning "woman of Magdala." This name was also used, fairly infrequently, as a Christian name during the 13th century.

Magdelin Early Origins



The surname Magdelin was first found in Oxfordshire, where the Magdelin family was anciently seated as Lords of the Manor. 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. However, many Saxon surnames survived, and the family name Magdelin was first referenced in the 13th century, when the Magdelin family held estates in Oxfordshire.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Magdelins to arrive in North America: Joane Maudlin, who settled in Virginia in 1666; Strangeman Modglin, who is believed to have emigrated from Scotland to North Carolina during the mid-18th century, and John Maudlin, who arrived in Detroit in 1869..
