The name Maulds Meaburn goes back to the 12th century. The King at the time, Henry II, gave part of the lands of Meaburn to Sir Hugh de Morville, and the other part to his sister, Maud de Veteripont. Sir Hugh eventually fell out of favour with the King, after which the King reclaimed Sir Hugh’s section of the land, and this area from here on became known as Kings Meaburn. The land that belonged to Maud was and to this day (September 2008) is called Maulds Meaburn.
