Ingthrop History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Ingthrop is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in the village of Ingoldisthorpe which was recorded in the Domesday survey as the site of two mills, a fishery and a salt-house. The family also lived in Yorkshire, where the name was associated with the village of Ingthorpe which was held in 1086 by Roger le Poitevin.

Early Origins of the Ingthrop family

The surname Ingthrop was first found in Norfolk at Ingolisthorpe, a village and civil parish in the union of Docking, hundred of Smithdon. The village was listed as Torp in the Domesday Book of 1086 [1] but by 1203 the village was known as Ingaldestorp. [2] The place name literally means "outlying farmstead or hamlet of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "thorp." [2] St Michael's church consists of a nave, chancel, and aisles, with a tower and a Norman font. [3]

Ingthrop Spelling Variations

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Ingthrop family name include Inglethorpe, Inglethorp, Ingelthorpe, Ingelthorp, Ingoldthorpe, Ingoldthorp, Ingoldesthorpe, Ingthorpe, Ingthorp, Ingerthorpe, Ingerthorp, Ingaldthorpe, Ingaldthorp, Ingaldsthorpe and many more.

Migration of the Ingthrop family

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Ingthrop surname or a spelling variation of the name include : William Inglethorpe, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; and Thomas Inglethorpe, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1738.
