Inchboit History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The history of the Inchboit name began with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the baptismal nameIngebald. The surname Inchboit referred to the son of Ingebald which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames. In Old English, patronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time.
