SPALDING Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Spaldin and Spalding, this interesting name is of Medieval English origin and is locational from a place called Spalding in Lincolnshire. The derivation of this surname is from the Old English pre 7th Century 'Spaldingas', meaning, members of the tribe of 'Spaldas'. This tribe is mentioned in the 'Tribal Hidage' of the 7th Century (Anglo Saxon Charters) and although the tribal name Spaldas is etymologically obscure, it is thought that they may have migrated from the continent, thus the name may have originated in some place there. Spaldas is presumably derived from the Old High German 'Spartan', meaning a Cleft, or Ravine...
