Oldeboroe is a name that came to England
in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest
of 1066. The Oldeboroe family lived in Suffolk
where they were first established as Lords of the Manor of Aldborough.
Early Origins of the Oldeboroe family
The surname Oldeboroe was first found in Suffolk
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Aldborough. At the taking of the Domesday Book
survey in 1086, a census of England
initiated by Duke William of Normandy
after his conquest of England
in 1066, Aldborough was held by Norman from his chief tenants, the Abbot of Ely and Robert Malet's mother. Conjecturally the family name is descended from this source. At this time, Aldborough consisted of a village with two churches.

Migration of the Oldeboroe family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland
, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Oldeboroe were among those contributors: John Aldburgh who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
