Dagley Surname History



The forbears of the name Dagley are thought to be of the ancient Scottish kingdom of Dalriada. The name indicates that the first bearer lived in the ancient lands of Dalgleish on Tinna Water, in the Parish of Ettrick, in the county of Selkirk, Scotland. The place name comes from the Celtic dol, meaning "field," and glas, or "green."


Early Origins of the Dagley family


The surname Dagley was first found in Selkirkshire (Scottish Gaelic: Siorrachd Shalcraig), where the name Dalgleish had its roots in the lands of Dalgleish on Tinna Water, in the Parish of Ettrick, Selkirkshire, in Scotland. The Dalgleish family figured prominently in the Scottish-English border conflicts.

Dagley Spelling Variations


Medieval spelling was at best an intuitive process, and translation between Gaelic and English was no more effective. These factors caused an enormous number of spelling variations in Dalriadan names. In fact, it was not uncommon to see a father and son who spelled their name differently. Over the years, Dagley has been spelled Dalgleish, Dalgliesh, Dalglish, Dalglese, Dagleish, Dagleishe, Dalgleise, Dalgleiss, Dalgiss, Dalgis, Dalglis and many more.

Migration of the Dagley family to the New World and Oceana


Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these hardy Dalriadan-Scottish settlers began to recover their collective history in the 20th century with the advent of the vibrant culture fostered by highland games and Clan societies in North America. Highland games, clan societies, and other organizations generated much renewed interest in Scottish heritage in the 20th century. The Dagley were among the earliest of the Scottish settlers as immigration passenger lists have shown:
