Iggulden History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Iggulden is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Iggulden 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." [1] [2]

Another source notes that the family came from Ingleden in Kent. [3]

Early Origins of the Iggulden family

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included Robert de Incledene in Devon at that time. [5] Richard Igolynden and John Igulden were listed as holding lands in 1475 and 1536. [3]

United States Iggulden migration to the United States +

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 Igguldens to arrive on North American shores:
