MCGOLDRICK Family History

This interesting surname is of Irish origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "Mac Ualghairg", composed of the elements "mac", son of, with the personal name "Ualgharg", apparently of Old Celtic elements meaning "proud" and "fierce". Golden and Goldrick are recorded as synonymous around Carrick-on-Shannon and Boyle. M(a)c Goldrick is numerous in Co. Fermanagh, where it is recorded in the Hearth Money Rolls of 1665 - 1666. The form McGoldrick was also widely used in Co. Mayo (where Golden has now largely superseded it), at least up to the end of the 18th Century, as records of householders and the like attest; it also occurs several times in the ecclesiastical records of Raphoe.

    My last name is Golden and my dad told me that before my family came to America (in the mid 1800s) Their last name was McGoldrick and heard a story from my dad and uncle when they did some digging saying that there was something about a rape and one of my ancestors daughter was raped by 2 English soldiers and they killed the soldiers and fled to America and using the father’s mother’s maiden name of O’Goulding (I think that’s how you spell It) and eventually becoming Golden. I’ve also been doing research into the Mag Ualghairgs and how they were a branch family of the royal O’Rourke family of the kingdom of Breifne.
