Inglesby History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Inglesby name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Ingoldsby, Lincolnshire or from Ingleby, found in the Derbyshire, or at Ingleby-Berwick, North Yorkshire. The latter is most interesting. "At the time of the Domesday Survey, the lands here were described with those of Acklam, to which the hamlet pertained, as is implied in the term Berwick: the ancient name of the place was Berewyke-juxta-Tees." [1]

Early Origins of the Inglesby family

The surname Inglesby 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. [2]

The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "by." [3]

Sir Roger de Ingoldsby, founder of the family was lord of the parish of Ingoldsby in 1230. [4] 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." [1]

United States Inglesby migration to the United States +

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Inglesby were among those contributors:

Emigration to New Zealand followed in the footsteps of the European explorers, such as Captain Cook (1769-70): first came sealers, whalers, missionaries, and traders. By 1838, the British New Zealand Company had begun buying land from the Maori tribes, and selling it to settlers, and, after the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, many British families set out on the arduous six month journey from Britain to Aotearoa to start a new life. Early immigrants include:

  • Ann Inglesby, aged 25, a servant, who arrived in Port Nicholson aboard the ship "Gertrude" in 1841


The Inglesby 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
