Ygelsdan History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Ygelsdan is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Ygelsdan family lived in Cambridgeshire, at the manor of Ickleton, from where they took their name.

Early Origins of the Ygelsdan family


The surname Ygelsdan was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Ickleton, and were conjecturally descended from Hardwin of Scales, a Norman knight who held the manor of Ickleton from Count Eustace.

Ygelsdan Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Ygelsdan has been recorded under many different variations, including Ickleton, Icledon, Ickledon, Icleton, Iggulden, Iggelden, Igguldon, Iggelsden, Igglesden, Igglesdon, Incleden and many more.

Migration of the Ygelsdan family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Ygelsdans were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
