When the ancestors of the Igeldyn family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Cambridgeshire, at the manor of Ickleton, from where they took their name.

Igeldyn Early Origins



The surname Igeldyn 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.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Igeldyn were among those contributors: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
