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.

The Great Migration



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.
