Iggulendynd History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The name Iggulendynd was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Iggulendynd 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 Iggulendynd family
The surname Iggulendynd 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.

Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Iggulendynd or a variant listed above: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
