Dalleng History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The present generation of the Dalleng family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in or beside a meadow. The surname Dalleng originally derived from the Old English word Dael.


Early Origins of the Dalleng family


The surname Dalleng was first found in Norfolk at either Field Dalling or Wood Dalling. Collectively they date back to the Domesday Book when they were listed as Dallinga. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Later there was a split in the villages as Wode Dallinges was listed in 1198 and Fildedalling was listed in 1272. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The parish of Wood-Dalling (anciently spelt Wode Dallinges) in Norfolk was a family seat since early times. "The Hall, now a respectable farmhouse, was built in 1582 by a member of the Dalling family, which during a long period held the estate." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Dalleng Spelling Variations


Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Dalleng include Dalling, Dawling, Douling, Dauling, Dallinger and others.

Migration of the Dalleng family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Dalleng were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Joe Dallinger who settled in Barbados in 1635; Cornelius Dawling settled in Virginia in 1654; Thomas Dawling arrived in Philadelphia in 1878.
