A series of conflicts regarding England's governance during the years 1642 to 1651 is now known as The English Civil War. Charles I summoned supporters to join him against his enemies in Parliament.

Fighting continued for years and was finally ended at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, with a Parliamentarian victory.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Inkersall in Staveley (Derbyshire). The placename may derive from an Old English personal name Hynkere (genitive Hynkeres) ‘limper’ + Old English hyll ‘hill’. Compare Ingerson 2.

History: The Ingersoll name in America dates back to John Ingersoll, who emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1629. His descendants include lawyers, public officials, and politicians in CT and PA.
