Both survived the Conquest, by which time the first element of the name had been reduced to "Al" or "El." Aeflric, Aefric, Alfric, Aluric [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Elrox family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Elrox family emigrate to North America: Samuel Eldredge who settled in Virginia in 1637; Giles Eldridg, his wife Mary, and son Giles, settled in Barbados in 1679; Captain Eldridge settled in San Francisco, Cal. in 1850.
