to the Mould Family Website
Although this is
only a relatively new site, we have received and posted a lot of
interesting material about different lines of the family.
People interested in the MOULD FAMILIES are encouraged to check
out the relevant WebPages . If you have material you would like
to submit to this site, please do so. If there is nothing up on
your family, how about starting it off by letting us put a page
up about your lot. It doesn't matter if you haven't got a great
deal of material. Please share what you have with others, you
will be the one to benefit in the long run.
I will put up as much
genealogy (Family Tree) as you have (not those living
please without their permission) and also the biographical
information. If possible I prefer that we limit each
biography to a maximum of five pages. ( I have 112 pages
on one of my gggg's). I don't except material that is already on
a web-site, but I will link to that information.

The MOULD Surname
has been created
to develop a collection of various MOULD family groups who descend
from the same male MOULD ancestor. DNA analysis provides a tool
for identifying participants who share a common male ancestor;
and, when used in unison with documented MOULD pedigrees, can also
aid in establishing links between MOULD groups who previously were
thought to be unrelated. Because many MOULD surname researchers
have exhausted traditional genealogy research methods without
identifying their elusive MOULD ancestor, this project combines
genetics and genealogy in an effort to break through the
proverbial "brick wall".

Molde, Mal, Molo, Maul, Mowld, Mowle, Mawle, Male, Menl. Further, a "S"

3. In Old English "Molle" is synonymous with "Mold", which may mean the
Mould's have some connection to Mollington and perhaps their name came
to being there, more research is required.
4. Mollington is a chapelry in Cropredy parish, partly in Oxford and
partly in Warwick. By 1891 it had become two civil parishes, one in each

have found to date are September 1322, in historical accounts of King
Robert The Bruce of Scotland. E.G.: "Bruce instantly followed up his
advantage. By the middle of September (1322), the Scots were before
Bamborough and Norham. (Northamptonshire) Bamborough bought off the
invaders, and on September 26, (1322) Sir Rodger de Horsley, the
constable, as well as the constables of Warkworth,
Dunstanburgh and Alnwick Castles, received a severe rebuke from Edward
(King Edward the 2nd.), for not showing fight against such an inferior

12. MOULDING MISCELLANEOUS INFO
Origin of the Moulding name? This was produced by "The Historical
Research Center, Inc". It is interesting but can they back up their
imaginative theory with evidence?!
The English surname Moulding, and its variant Moulden, is of matronymic
origin, being one of those names that was based on the first name of the
mother. During the Middle Ages, when the system of surnames first
developed, nothing could be more natural than for children in the
community to be known by the name of one of their parents. Names of
patronymic origin, that
is, ones which were based on the first name of the father, were much
more common, matronymics being relatively unusual. In this case, the
name literally means "the son of Mould or Mold", Mold being a variant of
Mathilda (the suffix "en" or "ing" is a diminutive ending). The feminine
name of Mathilda was first introduced into England at the time of the
Norman Conquest of 1066. The wife of William I was Queen Mathilda.
This personal name is derived from the Germanic "Mathildis", composed of
"mahti", meaning "might", and "hildi", meaning "battle/strife". Mathilda
became one of the most popular of female names, rivaled only by Alice.
In England, in certain areas, this French name became Mahild, Mould,
Molde, and Maud. In Yorkshire it was even rendered as Moule, the "d"
being dropped. Instances of the personal name Mathilda can be found in
the Domesday Book of 1086. By the thirteenth
century, this name was increasingly being used as a surname, thus, in
the Hundred Rolls of 1379 there is a reference to a Hugh Mold who lived
in Worcestershire. Catherine Mulden sailed on the "Washington" from
Liverpool in 1851 bound for New York. The blazon of arms described below
is associated with the name or a variant.
BLAZON OF ARMS: Sable, two bars wavy, in chief a lion passant guardant,
Translation: The lion in heraldry is a symbol of Majesty and Kingship.
It also signifies Beware to the Foe.
CREST: A demi-lion rampant guardant or.
MOTTO: Semper verus.
Translation: Always true.

What does the Mould name mean?
Last Name: Mould
English: from the Middle English female personal name Mau(l)d, a
reduced form of the Norman name
Mathilde, Matilda, composed of the Germanic elements maht 'might',
'strength' + hild 'strife',
'battle'. The learned form Matilda was much less common in the Middle
Ages than the vernacular
forms Mahalt, Maud and the reduced pet form Till. The name was borne by
the daughter of Henry I of
England, who disputed the throne of England with her cousin Stephen for
a number of years
(1137-48). In Germany the popularity of the name in the Middle Ages was
augmented by its being
borne by a 10th-century saint, wife of Henry the Fowler and mother of
Otto the Great.
