Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Ildyke is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Holdich, Norfolk. This locale cannot be found today, but was listed pre 1700.

Early Origins of the Ildyke family


The surname Ildyke 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.

Migration of the Ildyke family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Ildykes to arrive in North America: Richard Holdick who settled in Virginia in 1650; J. and H. Holdridge settled in Philadelphia in 1822.
