The name Olterbrough arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Olterbrough family lived in Suffolk where they were first established as Lords of the Manor of Aldborough.

Early Origins of the Olterbrough family


The surname Olterbrough 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 Olterbrough family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Olterbrough or a variant listed above: John Aldburgh who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
