The ancestors of the first family to use the name Dalgliesh lived among the Dalriadan people of ancient Scotland. The name Dalgliesh was given to someone 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."

Dalgliesh Early Origins



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.

The Great Migration



These settlers arrived in North America at a time when the east was burgeoning with prosperous colonies and the expanses of the west were just being opened up. The American War of Independence was also imminent. Some Scots stayed to fight for a new country, while others who remained loyal went north as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of them went on to rediscover their heritage in the 20th century through highland games and other patriotic Scottish events. The Dalgliesh were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:

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.
