Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Ingills surname is an English name with Norse roots, deriving from either of two Old Norse personal names "Ingjaldr," or from "Ingólfr" "Ing's wolf," Ing was an ancient Germanic fertility god. Some instances of this name in Britain are thought to have evolved from the place name Ingol, in Lancashire, which is named from the Old English personal name Inga with the Old English word "holh," meaning a "hollow," or "depression."

Ingills Early Origins



The surname Ingills was first found in Huntingdon, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The first on record appears to be an Ingoldus, who was listed in the Cartularium monasterii de Rameseia, as being in Huntingdonshire, between the years 1140 and 1130.
