Inglethropp History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Anglo-Saxon name Inglethropp comes from when the family resided in the village of Ingoldisthorpe which was recorded in the Domesday survey as the site of two mills, a fishery and a salt-house. The family also lived in Yorkshire, where the name was associated with the village of Ingthorpe which was held in 1086 by Roger le Poitevin.

Early Origins of the Inglethropp family

The surname Inglethropp was first found in Norfolk at Ingolisthorpe, a village and civil parish in the union of Docking, hundred of Smithdon. The village was listed as Torp in the Domesday Book of 1086 [1] but by 1203 the village was known as Ingaldestorp. [2] The place name literally means "outlying farmstead or hamlet of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "thorp." [2] St Michael's church consists of a nave, chancel, and aisles, with a tower and a Norman font. [3]

Migration of the Inglethropp family

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: William Inglethorpe, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; and Thomas Inglethorpe, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1738.
