Ingerthropp History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Ingerthropp is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the village of Ingoldisthorpe which was recorded in the Domesday survey as the site of two mills, a fishery and a salt-house. The family also lived in Yorkshire, where the name was associated with the village of Ingthorpe which was held in 1086 by Roger le Poitevin.

Early Origins of the Ingerthropp family

The surname Ingerthropp was first found in Norfolk at Ingolisthorpe, a village and civil parish in the union of Docking, hundred of Smithdon. The village was listed as Torp in the Domesday Book of 1086 [1] but by 1203 the village was known as Ingaldestorp. [2] The place name literally means "outlying farmstead or hamlet of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "thorp." [2] St Michael's church consists of a nave, chancel, and aisles, with a tower and a Norman font. [3]

Migration of the Ingerthropp family

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 Ingerthropps to arrive in North America: William Inglethorpe, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; and Thomas Inglethorpe, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1738.
