possible to assign ownership before enabling editor tracking/ownership based control?

I would like to enable ownership access with editor tracking on existing data, I edited a column to reflect the owner of each feature, then I enabled editor tracking from properties to manually select my edited column as the creator field, hoping that ownership would be honored when editing via a feature service.  Instead, as soon as I enabled editor tracking, the entire column of creator field was turned to <NULL>. Wiped out all 20,000 rows' ownership in the creatorfield column that I manually created..

 

Is there any way to assign ownership first on existing data and then enforce that ownership-based control with editor tracking, or is this feature only for features created *after* editor tracking is enabled?   Any hints appreciated - thanks!
