An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


Today's generation of the Maoold family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Maoold family lived in Cheshire. Before migrating to Normandy and then England, this family was originally the lords of Monte Alto, in Italy. Their name is thought to be a version of this place-name which underwent significant corruption through translation through several languages before being Anglicized.

Maoold Early Origins



The surname Maoold was first found in Cheshire where the family of Maude, originally the Lords of Monte Alto, in Italy, settled in the Lordships and manors of Montalt and Hawarden in the county of Flint.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Maoolds to arrive on North American shores: John Maud who settled with his wife and four children in Boston Massachusetts in 1769; Daniel Maude settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635; Jacob Maud arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1751.
