Inglestume is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Inglestume 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.

Inglestume Early Origins



The surname Inglestume 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]

Inglestume Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Inglestume family name include Ingleton, Inglton, Ingelton, Ingalton and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Inglestume surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Jane Ingleton, who sailed to Virginia in 1658; John Ingleton to America in 1697; and Christopher Ingleton to Annapolis, Maryland in 1730.
