Ingoldsby Family History

Ingoldsby Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Ingoldsby (Lincolnshire). The placename derives from the Old Norse personal name Ingiald (genitive Ingialdes) + Old Norse ‘farmstead village’. Irish: adopted for Mac an Ghallóglaigh (see Gallogly ) by mistranslation of gallóglach ‘foreign warrior’ or ‘galloglass’ as ‘English’. This gave rise to English and Englishby to form Ingoldsby by assimilation.
