Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Oldbury have been found, including Holtby, Holteby and others.

First found in Yorkshire at Holtby, a village and civil parish near York. The place dates back to at least the Domesday Book [1] where it was listed as Holtebi or Boltebi and literally meant "farmstead or village of a man called Holti" derived from the Old Scandinavian personal name + by. [2] Ainderby Mires with Holtby is a civil parish in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire and this civil parish also dates back to the Domesday Book [1] where it was listed as Eltebi or Heltebi.
