Inglis History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Borderlands, English


The origins of the Inglis surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a Englishman, so nicknamed for a person from England. The name Inglis comes from the Old English word "Englisc," originally used to describe the Angles as distinct from the Saxons. One document in referrring to a raid in 1541, mentions the attacking party were 'to the number of fifty-two Inglimen. The name was probably used to refer to "Non Welsh" in the border counties in that region, "Non-Celtic Scot" in the Scottish- England borderlands, and "Non-Dane" in the Danelaw regions.

Early Origins of the Inglis family


The surname Inglis was first found in Berwickshire, Scotland where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
