The surname Waldren was first found in Sussex at Waldron, a parish, in the union of Uckfield, hundred of Shiplake, rape of Pevensey. [1] The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where Iohannes filius Waleranni, Galerami was first listed. Richard Walram was listed in the Feet of Fines for Essex in 1262 and Robert Waldrond was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire in 1275. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 lists Matilda Walrond in Warwickshire. [2]

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Waldren were recorded, including Waldron, Walrond, Walrand, Waldren, Waldrond and others.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Waldren family emigrate to North America:
