Wolladge History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Wolladge family, who lived in Kent, at Woolwich.

Early Origins of the Wolladge family


The surname Wolladge was first found in Kent where they held a family seat. The name is derived from the borough of London, which, originally the Saxon name Hulviz, at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 by Duke William of Normandy, was held by Hamo the Sheriff, sometimes known as Hamo the Senechal (historian). It was customary amongst the Norman Barons to assign the name of the locality as a surname to a son so as to distinguish son from father. Hamo's, second son, Hamon, is most likely to be the under-tenant holding Woolwich, from his father, and conjecturally, the family are descended thusly. Wollage Green was also held, as was Woolwich Wood.

Migration of the Wolladge family to the New World and Oceana


The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Wolladge arrived in North America very early: John, Henry, William and Mary Wooleich whom settled in Virgina in 1650; John Woliche, his wife, two sons and three daughters settled in New England in 1709 from London England..
