Where did the English Ingleston family come from? What is the English Ingleston family crest and coat of arms? When did the Ingleston family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Ingleston family history?The name Ingleston is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Ingleston is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.
Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Ingleston were recorded, including Ingleton, Inglton, Ingelton, Ingalton and others.

Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States.
