Inkelton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The present generation of the Inkelton family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the region of Ingleton in Bentham at York. Inkelton is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Early Origins of the Inkelton family


The surname Inkelton was first found in North Yorkshire, at Ingleton, a village and civil parish in the Craven district that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Inglestune. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Alternatively, the surname could have been derived from Ingleton, a village in County Durham. In this case, the earliest record of the place name was found c. 1050 when it was listed as Ingletun. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Inkelton Spelling Variations


Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Inkelton include Ingleton, Inglton, Ingelton, Ingalton and others.

Migration of the Inkelton family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Inkelton were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Jane Ingleton, who sailed to Virginia in 1658; John Ingleton to America in 1697; and Christopher Ingleton to Annapolis, Maryland in 1730.
