As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Houldyke has been recorded under many different variations, including Holditch, Holdich, Holdrich, Holdridge, Hilditch and many more.

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 Houldyke or a variant listed above: Richard Holdick who settled in Virginia in 1650; J. and H. Holdridge settled in Philadelphia in 1822.
