The surname Spalding has a territorial origin, coming from the town of the same name in Lincolnshire, England.
The first of this surname recorded in Scotland is believed to be Radulphus de Spalding who, in 1225, was witness to the signing of a charter of the mill of Caterline in Kincardineshire.
In, or around, 1294, a grant of lands in Aberdeen was witnessed by Magister John de Spaldyn.
