Inglis of Manor.
Motto: Nobilis:est:ira:leonis:

Inglises of Mannor, Mannorhead, Murdostoun and Hartwood.

These Inglises are all based in Lanarkshire, Scotland. These are some of  the earliest recorded Inglises who first came to prominence in 1395 when Sir William Inglis killed the English Champion, Sir Thomas Struthers, in single combat. For this feat King Robert the Bruce granted him 'his cousin' the Barony of Manor. N.B Spelling of place names varied considerably in documents.

In 1600, Thomas Inglis of Eist Schiell was bound over to keep the peace and John Inglis of Hartwood signed a bond in sureties of relief. This is the only connection I have found between the Manor family and the Eist Scheill family. However, many books claim a connection, (See Chalmers' genealogical collections) and I think it is fair to assume that the Harwood family would not pay the equivalent of bail unless they were related.

Please let me know if anyone has any additional information on these families.

Inglises of Eist Scheill.

Inglises of Eist Scheill. This family are thought to come from younger sons of the Inglises of Manor (see History of the Early Inglises by John Alexander Inglis). Richard Inglis minister of St Bride's Douglas (see family tree) leaves some money in his Will to William Inglis of Eist Scheill his pupil. William Inglis of Eist Scheill is also one of the executors to his will. Can I assume there was a blood relationship between these families? If so...how?

Inglises of Gairloch and Glencorse
Motto: Recte:Faciendo:Securus

Inglises of Cramond.

These Inglises originated as merchants in Edinburgh (+/-) 1560.

Bishop Charles Inglis 1734-1816 (see family tree) had items made with the Inglis Crest depicted on it. The crest is the same as the Inglises of Cramond, in that it uses the family motto 'Nisi Dominus Frustra'. Did he know that he was related to the Inglises of Cramond and if so how? (see extract from book by Reginald V Harris). A small piece of evidence that points to a connection is that a stone was found in the Inglis Aisle, St Brides, Douglas Lanarkshire with Nisi Dominus Frustra engraved on it and dated 1752. Richard and Archibald (see family tree) were ministers of  St Bride's Church between 1641 and 1654. This shows that some Inglises connected with Douglas town, Lanarkshire were also using the same family motto as the Inglises of Crammond.

Cramond Tower
Inglis of Cramond
Motto:Nisi:Dominus:Frustra.

Inglises of Auchindinny, Redhall and Llangbyres.

These Inglisess claim descent from the Inglises of Murdouston and hence Mannor. (see Early Inglis History by John Alexander Inglis). Several books on Bishop Charles Inglis (Harris and Cuthbertson) claim that John Inglis of Philadelphia,U.S.A, (1708-1775) a descendant of the Langbyres Inglises (see Llangbyres family tree) paid the cost of passage for Charles to reach America in order that he teach his sons Samuel and John. It is certainly true that a John and Samuel Inglis were pupils in the 'Free School', Lancaster, Pennsylvania where Charles taught on arriving in America. (Harris)

Langbyres Inglises and my family both came from the same area of Scotlandů...but were they related and if so how? Murdoustoun and Llangbyres were next to each other but they must have separated from the Mudostoun stock prior to 1542. (see Llangbyres family tree). If anyone has some clues please let me know?
