The name Inkpind is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the region of Inkpen near Hungerford in Berkshire. Inkpind 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.

Migration of the Inkpind family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.
