The surname Dalke was first found in Edinburgh where they held a family seat. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in Edinburgh in the 17th century.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Dalkeith, Dalkieth and others.
