Moldon Early Origins



The surname Moldon 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]

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Moldons to arrive on North American shores: John Malden, who came to Vriginia in 1652; Hugh Malden, who arrived in Virginia in 1694; Frederick Maldon, who Oath of Allegiance was recorded in Philadelphia in 1840.
