Iggulendane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Iggulendane was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Iggulendane 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]

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]

Migration of the Iggulendane family

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 Iggulendane were among those contributors: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
