The name Inggoldesbey is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in the village of Ingoldsby, Lincolnshire or from Ingleby, found in the Derbyshire, or at Ingleby-Berwick, North Yorkshire.

Early Origins of the Inggoldesbey family
The surname Inggoldesbey was first found in Lincolnshire at Ingoldsby, a small village in the South Kesteven district, in the union of Grantham, wapentake of Beltisloe. The village dates back to at least the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Ingoldesbi. 
The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "by." 
Sir Roger de Ingoldsby, founder of the family was lord of the parish of Ingoldsby in 1230.  The township of Moorhouse in Durham held a special significance to the family. " In the seventeenth century this township was the seat, in succession, of the families of Ingleby and Roper."

Migration of the Inggoldesbey family
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Inggoldesbey or a variant listed above: 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.
