The name Iseke is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of the Britain and comes from the baptismal name Isaac. The surname Iseke referred to the son of Isaac which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames. In Old English, patronyms and were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time.

Iseke Early Origins



The surname Iseke 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.

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 Isekes to arrive in North America: Robert and Lucy Isaac settled in Savannah in 1821; William Isaac settled in Grenada in 1776; Rebecca Isaac settled in New England in 1634; Jonas, William, Terry, Phillip Isaac all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..
