The Mahoold name was originally an Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a maker of hoods. The surname Mahoold is derived from the Old English words hod, hud, hood, and hodde, which all come from the Old English word hod, which means hood. Occasionally, Mahoold may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Mahoold were among those contributors: Adam Hood who settled in New Jersey in 1685; John Hood settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hood settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1682.
