The story of the Dagley family is rich with Scottish history. It begins in the ancient kingdom of Dalriada where Dagley evolved as a name for some who 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."

Dagley Early Origins



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.

The Great Migration



Scottish settlers arrived in many of the communities that became the backbones of the United States and Canada. Many stayed, but some headed west for the endless open country of the prairies. In the American War of Independence, many Scots who remained loyal to England re-settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots across North America were able to recover much of their lost heritage in the 20th century as Clan societies and highland games sprang up across North Ameri ca. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Dagleys to arrive on North American shores:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Deliciae meae
Motto Translation: My delight.
