"BAILDON, BAYLDON. Most probably from Baildon, the name of a township in the parish of Otley, Yorkshire. Baring-Gould (p. 208) erroneously, I think, says the name is derived from Baladon, a place in Normandy. Patrick Baldon was a priest of the diocese of Ross in 1444 (Pap. Lett., vrn, p. 449). William Baldon appears as perpetual vicar of Inverness, 1536, and Robert Baldon was part tenant in Akinhede, 1565 (REM., p. 438). H. Bellyse Baildon edited an edition of The Poems of William Dunbar, Cambridge, 1907. Welsh Paley Baildon (Baildon and the Baildons, l, p. 78-79) gives 57 ways in which his family name has been spelled in recent years and 64 old spellings from records. "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
