Iggledane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Iggledane is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The Iggledane family lived in Cambridgeshire, at Ickleton, parish, in the union of Linton, hundred of Whittlesford. "This place was the seat of a Benedictine nunnery, founded in the reign of Henry II. The church, supposed to have been built before the Conquest, contains 400 sittings."  
Another source notes that the family came from Ingleden in Kent. 
Early Origins of the Iggledane family
The surname Iggledane was first found in Cambridgeshire where they were conjecturally descended from Hardwin of Scales, a Norman knight who held the mamor of Ickleton from Count Eustace. 
The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included Robert de Incledene in Devon at that time.  Richard Igolynden and John Igulden were listed as holding lands in 1475 and 1536.

Migration of the Iggledane family

Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Iggledane family to immigrate North America: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
