The ancient roots of the Eldarton family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Eldarton comes from when the family lived in a region or farm with alder trees. Accounts suggest that the surname Eldarton may also mean the farm of the great and wise warrior.

The surname Eldarton was first found in Northampton, Wiltshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, and is of great antiquity. The name means 'the farm of the great and wise warrior'.

One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Eldarton has appeared include Alderton, Elderton, Eldarton, Aldarten, Eldertin and others.

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 Eldarton arrived in North America very early: John Alderton who came at the time of the "Mayflower" in 1620; and settled in Plymouth, and later in Massachusetts, at the age of 21. Another John Alderton settled in Virginia in 1663.
