The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Molder family, who lived in Devon. The name, however, is a reference to the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Meules in Calvados, in the arrondisement of Lisieux in the canton of Orbec, Normandy.

Molder Early Origins



The surname Molder was first found in Devon where they were under tenants of Baldwin FitzGilbert, Sheriff of Devon. Typical of the family's early benevolence, the parish of Skirbeck in Lincolnshire was the site of an early hospital. "An hospital for ten persons, founded here in honour of St. Leonard, was given in 1230 by Sir Thomas Multon, Knt., to the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem, who dedicated it anew to St. John the Baptist. In the time of Edward II., its revenue was sufficient for the maintenance of four priests, of twenty people in the infirmary, and for the daily relief of forty more at the gate." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Molder Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Moulson, Moulton, Molson, Molton and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Molder or a variant listed above:

Molder Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Robert Molder, who landed in Maryland in 1672

Molder Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Sebastian Molder, who arrived in Allegany (Allegheny) County, Pennsylvania in 1844

Molder Settlers in Canada in the 19th Century

  • Joanna Molder, who landed in Nova Scotia in 1833

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Regi fidelis
Motto Translation: Faithful to the king.
