Inkoldthrup History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The name Inkoldthrup is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came 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. 
Thomas Inglethorp or Ingoldsthorp (d. 1291), was "Bishop of Rochester, appears to have belonged to a family of some note, taking its name from Ingoldesthorp in Norfolk. He held the prebendal stall of Stoke Newington in St. Paul's Cathedral, and became Archdeacon of Middlesex, from which dignity he was raised to the deanery of St. Paul's in 1276. He also held the Archdeaconry of Sudbury in August 1267." 
Early Origins of the Inkoldthrup family
The surname Inkoldthrup 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 Inkoldthrup family
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Inkoldthrup or a variant listed above: William Inglethorpe, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; and Thomas Inglethorpe, a bonded passenger sent to America in 1738.
