The surname Oakover was first found in Staffordshire where "this venerable and knightly family are lineal descendants of Ormus, who at the period of the Norman Conquest was lord of Okeover by grant of Nigel, abbot of Burton. During the long period of almost eight hundred years, they flourished uninterruptedly upon that estate." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Okeover Hall is a privately owned country house held by the family since the reign of William Rufus (1087-1100.) Another branch of the family was found at Atlow in Derbyshire. "The manor [of Atlow] once belonged to Henry de Ferrars, and was held under him or his immediate heirs by the ancestor of the ancient family of Okeover." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
