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


The distinguished surname Maudlin 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.

Maudlin Early Origins



The surname Maudlin was first found in Oxfordshire, where the Maudlin 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 Maudlin was first referenced in the 13th century, when the Maudlin family held estates in Oxfordshire.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Maudlin family emigrate to North America:
