  • Notes 
    • He may have been a son of John Ingersoll/Inkersall of Derby, who was buried at St. Werburgh's, Derby, in 1617, husband of Rose Taley or Saley.

      "It appears that Thomas Ingersoll moved from Derby to the Greater London area, where he became a ropemaker in Stepney. Around 1625, he returned to Derby, where he was a shoemaker and the town crier ... a paid town official who make official announcements at specified times ... The Derby rental rolls include yearly payments by the borough; the rolls for 1677, 1677/8, 1680, and 1682 show that he was paid £2 12s a year for performing his duties. Thomas Inkersall of St. Werburgh paid 2s at the 'Free and Voluntary Present of 1661,' supposedly a 'voluntary' gift on the restoration of Charles II after the Commonwealth period, and he was assessed for one hearth, 1662-1670. He executed his will on 12 Aug 1673, when he was sickly and weak, but he recovered and continued to perform his duties as town crier. When he died in 1681, he was about 88 years old. His son, Samuel Ingersoll, succeeded his as town crier and may well have been performing the duties earlier." [David L. Greene, citation details below]

      He was chosen registrar of the parish of St. Warburgh, Derby, Derbyshire on 21 Nov 1653.
