The name Ilage is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the area referred to as Illide Green in the county of Cheshire. This place-name was originally derived from the Anglo-Norman French word isle or ile, which means islet and the Old English word lache, which means a lake. Therefore the original bearers of the surname Ilage lived near an islet located by a lake.

Ilage Early Origins



The surname Ilage was first found in Suffolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Ilages to arrive in North America: Benjamin Ilidge, who sailed to America in 1757. L. Illege journeyed to San Francisco in 1852.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Aquila non captat muscas
Motto Translation: The eagle is no fly-catcher.
