The ancestors of the Inglestome surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Inglestome is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Jane Ingleton, who sailed to Virginia in 1658; John Ingleton to America in 1697; and Christopher Ingleton to Annapolis, Maryland in 1730.
