Elder Genealogy & History

Elder is an English and Scottish surname, used as a nickname for an older brother or father, sometimes with a corresponding Junior, and more or less interchangeable with Senior. Elder family history is difficult to pinpoint, but one of the earliest recordings is of Hugo le Heldere, enrolled in Hertfordshire in 1212. Elders is also used, with the "s" denoting a patronymic: "son of Elder", as with former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, one famous member of Elder genealogy. A few others are Alexander Lang Elder, founder of Australian agribusiness company Elders Limited, and Air Force General Robert Elder, Jr.
