The name Dain was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Dain family lived in Sussex. The name, however, derives from the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Dives, Normandy.

Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence in the eras before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate regularly changed the spellings of their names as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Dain have been found, including Dyne, Dine, Dives, Dynne, Dinne, Dyves, Dyon and others.

First found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Dain were among those contributors:

Dain Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century


  • Henry Dain (aged 20) arrived in South Australia in 1856 aboard the ship "Aliquis"
