Ingold History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The present generation of the Ingold family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Ingoldsby, Lincolnshire or from Ingleby, found in the Derbyshire, or at Ingleby-Berwick, North Yorkshire. The latter is most interesting. "At the time of the Domesday Survey, the lands here were described with those of Acklam, to which the hamlet pertained, as is implied in the term Berwick: the ancient name of the place was Berewyke-juxta-Tees." 
Early Origins of the Ingold family
The surname Ingold was first found in Lincolnshire at Ingoldsby, a small village in the South Kesteven district, in the union of Grantham, wapentake of Beltisloe. The village dates back to at least the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Ingoldesbi. 
The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "by." 
Sir Roger de Ingoldsby, founder of the family was lord of the parish of Ingoldsby in 1230.  The township of Moorhouse in Durham held a special significance to the family. " In the seventeenth century this township was the seat, in succession, of the families of Ingleby and Roper."

Ingold Spelling Variations
Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Ingold include Inglesby, Ingilby, Ingleby, Ingoldesby, Ingoldsby and many more.

Ingold migration to the United States +
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Ingold were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:

The Ingold Motto +
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Fiducia creat fidem
Motto Translation: Trust creates faith
