Inskeep is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in the manor of Inskipp in the parish of St. Michael le Wyne in the county of Lancashire. This place-name was originally derived from the Old English word Ynyscype, which refers to someone who lived near an island.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Inskeep family name include Inskip, Inskipp, Inskeep and others.

First found in Lancashire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Inskeep surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
