Early Origins of the Ingreme family


The surname Ingreme 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. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Ingreme family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Ingreme family name Ingreme, or who bore a variation of the surname were Edward Ingraham settled in Boston in 1635; John Ingram settled in Virginia in 1652; Richard Ingram settled in the same year, along with Toby; Archibald, Henry, Isaac, John and William Ingram all arrived in Pennsylvania between 1840 and 1860..

The Ingreme Motto

Expand

The Ingreme 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: Magnanimus esto
Motto Translation: Be great of mind.
