Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Aldersay is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in a region or small valley with alder trees. The surname Aldersay may also indicate one who came from Aldersey, an ancient village or hamlet that once existed in England.

Aldersay Early Origins



The surname Aldersay was first found in Cheshire, at Aldersey, a civil parish, now in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester. They are a family of great antiquity in that county, and held estates at Aldersey and Spurstow from about the 11th century. They also held estates at Bunbury and Peel Hall in the parish of Tarvin.
