BOULDS Family History

This interesting surname, with variant spellings Bold, Bo(u)lter, Bould and Boulds, may derive from a number of possible sources. Firstly, it may be of topographical origin for a person who resides at a small farm, from the Old Danish element "bol", small farm, found in areas where the Scandinavian influence was particularly strong. The name may perhaps be of English occupational origin, denoting a sifter of flour, from the Old French "beluter", a sifter of flour (Middle English "bo(u)lt"). Bolt may also be a metonymic occupational name for a maker of bolts from the Middle English word "bolt", a bolt or arrow.
