GOULDING Family History

This unusual and interesting name has two possible origins, both Anglo-Saxon. Firstly, it may derive from the Old English pre 7th Century personal name "Goldhere", which is composed of the elements "gold", gold, with "here", army. The personal name appears in the Essex Pipe Rolls of 1197: Henricus filius (son of) Goldere, and the first recording of the surname from this source occurs in the 1296 Subsidy Rolls of Sussex, where one John Golder(e) is listed. The second possible origin for the modern surname is locational, from the place called "Golder" in Oxfordshire.
