Ingledent is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Ingledent family lived in Cambridgeshire, at the manor of Ickleton, from where they took their name.

Ingledent Early Origins



The surname Ingledent was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Ickleton, and were conjecturally descended from Hardwin of Scales, a Norman knight who held the manor of Ickleton from Count Eustace.

Ingledent Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Ingledent are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Ingledent include Ickleton, Icledon, Ickledon, Icleton, Iggulden, Iggelden, Igguldon, Iggelsden, Igglesden, Igglesdon, Incleden and many more.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Ingledent, or a variant listed above: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
