The ancient history of the Inkelthropp name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided 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.

Inkelthropp Early Origins



The surname Inkelthropp 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]CITATION[CLOSE]

Inkelthropp Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Inkelthropp include Inglethorpe, Inglethorp, Ingelthorpe, Ingelthorp, Ingoldthorpe, Ingoldthorp, Ingoldesthorpe, Ingthorpe, Ingthorp, Ingerthorpe, Ingerthorp, Ingaldthorpe, Ingaldthorp, Ingaldsthorpe and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Inkelthropp or a variant listed above: William Inglethorpe, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; and Thomas Inglethorpe, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1738.
