The name Nalder comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person noted for giving good counsel.

Nalder Early Origins



The surname Nalder was first found in Cambridgeshire, at Aldreth, a hamlet that dates back to 1170 when it was listed as Alrehetha in the Pipe Rolls. The name literally means "landing-place by the alders" from the Old English words for "alor" and "hyth." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

However the surname dates back further and is recorded in the Domesday Book as Aldreth and Ealdred as holding lands under the Norman King William soon after the Conquest in 1086. In fact, Aldred was a famous ecclesiastic, who was Bishop of York from 1044-1060, and Archbishop of York from 1060-1069, and it was he who crowned the Conqueror.
