Early Origins of the Ingreham family
The surname Ingreham was first found in Northumberland at Ingram, a small village in the Cheviots on the River Breamish. The first listing of the village was in 1242 when it was listed as Angerham and literally meant "homestead or enclosure with grassland," having derived from the Old English words anger + ham.  Alternatively, the name could have been a variant of the Latin name Ingelramus, an ancient personal name which was also listed as Ingelram and Ingerham.
