Lydecker History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Lydecker family

The surname Lydecker was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Limburg, the smallest, southernmost province of the Netherlands. The capital of the province is Mastricht, noted for its contribution to the modern treaty for the European Economic Community (E.E.C.) Other notable towns are Crefeld and Breda and Nijmwegan. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the rank of Counts as they grew into this most influential family.
