Oldaker Coat of Arms
Motto Translated: I shall conquer in the cross
Origin Displayed: English
Oldaker 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 Oldaker family lived in Oldfield, Cheshire. This is a topographical name whose derivation is just as it looks. The original bearer of the name Oldfield would have been distinguished by residence near to an old field. Individual cases of the name may also spring from residence in a place which bears the name Oldfield for the same reasons as above.
Spelling variations include: Oldfield, Oldefield, Oldfeild and others. First found in Cheshire where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: John Oldfield arrived in Maryland in 1684; Eleanor Oldfield settled in Maryland in 1730; Rhodes Oldfield settled in Philadelphia in 1871.
