The origins of the Ingleton name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Ingleton was originally derived from a family having lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Ingleton 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.

Ingleton Early Origins



The surname Ingleton 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



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:
