Ildage History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Ildage is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Ildage family once lived in Holdich, Norfolk. This locale cannot be found today, but was listed pre 1700.

Early Origins of the Ildage family


The surname Ildage was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Ildage Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Ildage family name include Holditch, Holdich, Holdrich, Holdridge, Hilditch and many more.

Migration of the Ildage family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Ildage surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Richard Holdick who settled in Virginia in 1650; J. and H. Holdridge settled in Philadelphia in 1822.
