Iggledan is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Iggledan family lived in Cambridgeshire, at the manor of Ickleton, from where they took their name.

Iggledan Early Origins



The surname Iggledan 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



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Iggledan arrived in North America very early: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
