Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Ingleton family history?The origins of the Ingleton name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Ingleton was originally derived from a family having lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Ingleton 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 English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Ingleton include Ingleton, Inglton, Ingelton, Ingalton and others.

Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
