Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Aldersie 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 Aldersie may also indicate one who came from Aldersey, an ancient village or hamlet that once existed in England.

Aldersie Early Origins



The surname Aldersie 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Aldersies to arrive in North America: Grace Aldersey, who settled in Virginia in 1646; Stephen Aldersea who arrived in Maryland in 1724; and John Aldersey, who settled in Boston in 1820.
