The name Mawdson was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Mawdson 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.

Mawdson Early Origins

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Mawdson were among those contributors: 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.
