The reason I mention Paul Reaney is that, even while disagreeing with his interpretiation of the name Murgatroyd, I have respect for the breadth of his knowledge of a subject of interest to me.
Your attitude is that you disagree with Marc on a couple of things so you can denigrate and dismiss his contribution completely. You find two or three errors on this website and it's rubbish. As we say in Hull (Yorkshire) "The man who never made a mistake is a lazy b******d". Your attitude of "I'm right and you're wrong, I'm from Yorkshire and you're not" does a great disservice to all Yorkies and, I should add, reinforces a certain stereotype.
As you don't think anyone from outside of Halifax and environs has a right to voice an opinion on surnames of that area, I expect you will have no contribution to make on names from outside of your circumscribed area.
As for the name Ingham, my opinion is that the -ing suffix has no existence as a word in it's own right, i.e., ing is not a German word for clan. It's a bit like saying that beacuse we refer to the Smith family as "the Smiths", that the final S means "family".
