Moulden History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Moulden is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Moulden family 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. [1]

Early Origins of the Moulden family

The surname Moulden 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." [2]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list the following: Agnes de Multon in Norfolk, 1273; Thomas de Multon in Lincolnshire; Adam de Multon in Cambridgeshire; and Alex, de Multon in Oxfordshire. [3]
