D'Oliveira hit 202 not out in Worcestershire's total of 456 for six declared as he emulated his father Damien and grandfather Basil.
The D'Oliveira trio are now the first grandfather, father and son to score first-class double centuries.
The 24-year-old's impressive innings came just days after he recorded his maiden Championship ton.
Basil D'Oliveira, who died at the age of 80 in 2011, ended up playing for England after seeing his path blocked in his native apartheid-era South Africa.
He made headlines in 1968 when he was included in the England squad for the tour of South Africa which had to be called off as the South African government refused to accept his presence.
