GAULT Family History

This interesting and long-established surname may be either of early medieval English, or of Old Gaelic (Scottish and Irish) origin. If the former, Gault is a variant of the more familiar Galt, itself a nickname for a warrior who fought with the fierceness and tenacity of a wild boar, deriving from the Middle English "galte, gaute, gault", ultimately from the Old Norse "goltr", wild boar. Nicknames, such as this, were originally given with reference to a variety of personal characteristics including physical attributes; mental and moral qualities; habits of dress and behaviour; and supposed resemblance to an animal's or bird's appearance or disposition.
