Inkerthropp History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The origins of the Inkerthropp name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the 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 Inkerthropp family
The surname Inkerthropp 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  but by 1203 the village was known as Ingaldestorp.  The place name literally means "outlying farmstead or hamlet of a man called Ingjaldr," from the Old Scandinavian (Viking) personal name + "thorp."  St Michael's church consists of a nave, chancel, and aisles, with a tower and a Norman font.

Migration of the Inkerthropp family
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Inkerthropp family emigrate to North America: William Inglethorpe, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; and Thomas Inglethorpe, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1738.
