Olteborow History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Olteborow came to England with the ancestors of the Olteborow family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Olteborow family lived in Suffolk where they were first established as Lords of the Manor of Aldborough.

Early Origins of the Olteborow family


The surname Olteborow 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 Olteborow family to the New World and Oceana


Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Olteborow, or a variant listed above: John Aldburgh who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
