Migration of the Inggilby family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England
, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Inggilbys to arrive on North American shores: John Ingoldsby, who arrived in Boston in 1642; Henry Ingoldsby, who came to Pennsylvania in 1682; Mary Inglesby, a bonded passenger who arrived in Virginia in 1741.
The Inggilby 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: Fiducia creat fidem
Motto Translation: Trust creates faith
