Whether you are Religious or not, Im not particularly :), the bible does contain a history of families, so have included this information where appropriate as a means to establishing the begining of families where relatives by marriage have gone back that far. This wont be agreed with by many, but that cant be helped :)
The surprise package in this tree occurs in the family line of Sir Arthur Ingram II, 1595 to 1654 and wife Eleanor Slingsby, 1595 to 1655. One of their daughters Elizabeth, 1624 to 1661, married Lord Robert Rich, 1619 to 16 April 1675, 5th Earl of Warwick, 2nd Earl of Holland. Through this marriage a massive connection by marriage occurs into Early Kings of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Iceland etc up to present day Royalty.I have included the legendary people as well when it occurred to provide that connection, real people, but their mention is only in legends with extraordinary powers.

Ingram name history
The surname ‘INGRAM’, sometimes spelled ‘Ingraham’ in the 16th century, was introduced to England by the Normans (Dictionary of Surnames). It is derived from a Germanic personal name, either ‘Engil’ or ‘Ing’, and ‘hraben’, meaning raven, so the name ‘Engeram’ or ‘Ingeram’, found in Wolford in the 13th century before surnames were adopted, might be a precursor of the later surname. Indeed, the inscription on the monument in Wolford church to Aston INGRAM, who died in 1711, claims that he was ‘descended from Engeram de Wlwarth who levied a Fine of certain lands in the Manour of little Wolford in the year of our Lord 1202’.
The Ingram coat of arms was granted in 1763 to Archibald Ingram, Provost of Glasgow, and consists of a shield emblazoned with a horizontal ermine or red banner with three gold scallops or shells centered on it. At the top of the shield is an armored helmet with a naturally colored rooster sitting on top of it. Reportedly the family motto is "Ad Sidera Vultus", translated as "Look to the Stars."
