Inday History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Inday come from its first bearer, who was a person with a mild temperment. The surname Inday is derived from the Old English word hendy, which means courteous, kind, and gentle. This word was also often used as a personal name. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Early Origins of the Inday family

Migration of the Inday family to the New World and Oceana


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 Indays to arrive in North America: Richard Hendy settled in Barbados in 1679.
