The name Ygelsdane was carried to England in the enormous movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Ygelsdane family lived in Cambridgeshire, at the manor of Ickleton, from where they took their name.

Early Origins of the Ygelsdane family


The surname Ygelsdane 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.

Ygelsdane Spelling Variations


Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Ickleton, Icledon, Ickledon, Icleton, Iggulden, Iggelden, Igguldon, Iggelsden, Igglesden, Igglesdon, Incleden and many more.

Migration of the Ygelsdane family to the New World and Oceana


Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, traveling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Ygelsdane or a variant listed above: Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Sarah Iggleden who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
