Early Origins of the Aalster family
The surname Aalster was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in The Hague, a town in the province of South Holland. In the 13th century this village was no more than a hunting Lodge of the counts of Holland. Count Floris V made it his home and it became the seat of the supreme court. It became a town in the 19th century. It is now the seat of Government. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family.
