An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


Milden is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Oxfordshire where they were established since early times. The name originally came from the words mill-town and denoted that the town had a mill.

Milden Early Origins



The surname Milden was first found in Oxfordshire where the name was derived from the place name Milton of which there are many that still survive today. However, there is strong evidence that the family descended from the Norman family of De Camville who held a baronial estate in the area as the arms of that family and the name Milden both have the double-headed eagle. The Camville or Campvilles date back to before William the Conqueror. Continuing the investigation further, we found the Camvilles of Milton appear continuously in records after the Domesday Book. For example, Gerard de Camville, Baron of Milton had three sons ( c. 1230). The youngest was probably the ancestor of the Miltons.

Milden Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Milden family name include Milton, Mylton and others.
