Migration of the Engelbey family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, 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 Engelbey surname or a spelling variation of the name include : John Ingoldsby, who arrived in Boston in 1642; Henry Ingoldsby, who came to Pennsylvania in 1682; Mary Inglesby, a bonded passenger who arrived in Virginia in 1741.
The Engelbey Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Fiducia creat fidem
Motto Translation: Trust creates faith
