The name Inglestone has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Inglestone 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.

Inglestone Early Origins



The surname Inglestone was first found in North Yorkshire, at Ingleton, a village and civil parish in the Craven district that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Inglestune. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Inglestone, or a variant listed above: Jane Ingleton, who sailed to Virginia in 1658; John Ingleton to America in 1697; and Christopher Ingleton to Annapolis, Maryland in 1730.
