    Biography
    • Richard GILDERSLEEVE, the pioneer founder of the family in Americas was a notable man in the early colonies. A Puritan in religion, he was born in 1601 in County Suffolk, England, where various GYLDENSLEVE-GILDERSLEEVE families are recorded since 1500. They are recorded in County Norfolk, since 1273 when Roger GYLDENSLEVE, landowner, was listed in the Hundred Rolls. Bardsley, in his dictionary of English surnames, states that the family got their name from "sleeve braided with gold." Blomefield's Norfolk (I:540) refers to John GILDENSLEVE as a priest or fellow of Holy Cross College in 1421 at Atleburgh, while in 1588 John GILDENSLEVE resigned as rector of Little Cressingham (IV:111)
      The Suffolk Green Books (# 12:83, 92 etc.) (# 16(2) p. 308) give a history of the Gildensleeve family from 1500 to 1750, mostly of the Shotley family. Other Suffolk families are numerous, (Probate records in Ipswich, 1544-1601, have eight GYLDENSLEVE, GYLDERSLEVE and GILDERSLEEV wills.)
