Oakes Genealogy & History

Like many surnames that came from Anglo-Saxon culture, Oakes is a locational surname that described people who lived next to groupings of trees. The many years of unstandardized spelling accounts for the alternative spellings of Oakes, which include Oakes, Oke, and Okes. The family motto is the Latin phrase esse quam videri, meaning to be rather than seem to be. Oakes family history notes that the first Oakes to settle in the United States was Simon Oakes, in 1632. Notable members of the Oakes genealogy include John Oakes, U.S. journalist and Rhodes Scholar and Stefan Trevor Oakes, an English footballer.
