Holderman is an old Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who was a duke, magistrate, or chief.

Holderman Early Origins



The surname Holderman was first found in Lincolnshire in eastern England. The name was recorded as holding lands in that county in the Domesday Book (1086,) a census taken by King William after his conquest of England in 1066. The family name is believed to have been seated there for many years.

Holderman has been recorded under many different variations, including Aldreman, Alderman, Elderman, Aelderman and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Holderman or a variant listed above:
