The Munden surname is a habitational name, taken on from a place in Hertfordshire; so named from the Old English personal name Munda, along with "denu," meaning "valley."

Munden Early Origins



The surname Munden was first found in Essex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1119 when Ranulf de Mundona held estates in that shire.
