The ancient roots of the Alldersea family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Alldersea comes from when the family lived in a region or small valley with alder trees. The surname Alldersea may also indicate one who came from Aldersey, an ancient village or hamlet that once existed in England.

Alldersea Early Origins



The surname Alldersea 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



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Alldersea arrived in North America very early: 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.
