Early Origins of the Maulden family
The surname Maulden was first found in Essex
at Maldon, a town on the Blackwater estuary. The town dates back to the early 10th century where it was first listed as Maeldune and as Maldon in the Anglo Saxon Chronicle. By the time of the Domesday Book
, the town was listed as Malduna and literally meant "hill with a crucifix" from the Old English words mael + dun. CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Maulden family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Maulden or a variant listed above:
