I've not heard of it before Val but if you go on FreeBMD and search 'all types' and put +illedge (if you put the + sign you'll get first and middle names) in the first name box, a few come up. Its also a surname so I wonder whether this is where it comes from

Illedge is a old Anglo Saxon name. They even have their own Crest, maybe it could have been either in Henry or Elizabeths past. Lizzy
