Dalgliesh Surname History



The rugged west coast of Scotland in the kingdom of Dalriada is the setting from which came the Dalgliesh name. The name derives from someone having 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 Dalgliesh family


The surname Dalgliesh 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.

Migration of the Dalgliesh family to the New World and Oceana


Numerous Scottish settlers settled along the east coast of the colonies that would become the United States and Canada. Others traveled to the open country of the west. At the time of the American War of Independence, some remained in the United States, while those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The highland games and Clan societies that sprang up across North America in the 20th century have helped many Scots to recover parts of their lost traditions. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Dalglieshs to arrive in North America:
