Origin of surname
This is an English surname of pre-medieval origins. Recorded in most parts of England but particularly associated with the county of Yorkshire, it has its origins in the Anglo-Saxon personal name Engel. This was a tribal name meaning The Angles, the people of Englanda, in Northern Germany, who invaded Eastern and Northern Britain in the 5th Century AD and subsequently gave their name to England. To this was added the suffix 'hrafn', meaning raven, a bird renowned for its ferocity and wisdom to give a literal meaning of English-raven.
James Ingram, a garrison soldier, married Susanne Blampied in St Helier in 1792 and remained in Jersey to start the family which is still present today.
