The spelling of the name from Gaulding to Gaulden/in occurred in the next generation, the children of John Matthew Gaulding. Son John, Jr. and son William have been set to merge into their EN or IN derivations. Further research is needed to determine the derivations or not, used by the rest of the children. Some are known to have kept the Gaulding spelling.
John Gaulding was born in New Kent County Virginia. This is proven in the birth, baptism and death records of the Parish. That John's Middle name was Mathew is something contentiously debated among researchers, but they all say that this baby Mathew is John Mathew Gaulding and that this John Mathew Gaulding Married Elizabeth Geers.
John Gaulding and Elizabeth Geers appear in court records seeking custody of Alexander Gaulding's Children.
