Mauldin Early Origins



The surname Mauldin 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]

One of the first records of the surname was found in the year 1236 when Robert Maldon held lands in that area.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
