Maulden Early Origins



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. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
One of the first records of the surname was found in the year 1236 when Robert Maldon held lands in that area.

Maulden Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Maulden has been recorded under many different variations, including Maldon, Malden, Maulden, Mauldon, Mauldin, Maulden and many more.

The Great Migration



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:
