Alotesone History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
Alotesone is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Alotesone family lived in Dorset.

Migration of the Alotesone family
In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Alotesones to arrive on North American shores: Peter Allott who settled in Virginia in 1655; Andrew Hallet settled in Virginia in 1620; about the time of the "Mayflower," followed by Andrew Hallett in Massachusetts in 1635.
