Ingoldsby History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
Ingoldsby is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once 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 Ingoldsby family
The surname Ingoldsby 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."

Ingoldsby migration to the United States
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed.
