Oltesea History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Oltesea is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in a region or small valley with alder trees. The surname Oltesea may also indicate one who came from Aldersey, an ancient village or hamlet that once existed in England.

Early Origins of the Oltesea family


The surname Oltesea was first found in Cheshire, at Aldersey, a civil parish, now in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester. They are a family of great antiquity in that county, and held estates at Aldersey and Spurstow from about the 11th century. They also held estates at Bunbury and Peel Hall in the parish of Tarvin.

Oltesea Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Oltesea family name include Aldersey, Eldersey, Aldersea, Eldersy and others.

Migration of the Oltesea family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Oltesea surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Grace Aldersey, who settled in Virginia in 1646; Stephen Aldersea who arrived in Maryland in 1724; and John Aldersey, who settled in Boston in 1820.
