Engledoe History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Engledoe reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Engledoe family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Engledoe family lived in Cambridgeshire, at the manor of Ickleton, from where they took their name.

Early Origins of the Engledoe family


The surname Engledoe was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Ickleton, and were conjecturally descended from Hardwin of Scales, a Norman knight who held the manor of Ickleton from Count Eustace.

Migration of the Engledoe family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Engledoes to arrive on North American shores: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
