Eldee Early Origins



The surname Eldee was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Eldees to arrive in North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
