An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


Today's Irish surnames are underpinned by a multitude of rich histories. The name Dallind originally appeared in Gaelic as Dubhshlainte. The word dubh means black, and Slaine is topographical; it is Anglicized as Slaney, and may refer to the river Slaney.

Dallind Early Origins



The surname Dallind was first found in Leinster, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Dallind Spelling Variations



The recording of names in Ireland during the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best. Since the general population did not know how to read or write, they could only specify how their names should be recorded orally. Research into the name Dallind revealed spelling variations, including Delaney, Delany, Delane, Delaune, Dalaney and others.

The Great Migration



In the 19th century, thousands of Irish left their English-occupied homeland for North Ameri ca. Like most new world settlers, the Irish initially settled on the eastern shores of the continent but began to move westward with the promise of owning land. The height of this Irish migration came during the Great Potato Famine of the late 1840s. With apparently nothing to lose, Irish people left on ships bound for North America and Australia. Unfortunately a great many of these passengers lost their lives - the only thing many had left - to disease, starvation, and accidents during the long and dangerous journey. Those who did safely arrive in "the land of opportunities" were often used for the hard labor of building railroads, coal mines, bridges, and canals. The Irish were critical to the quick development of the infrastructure of the United States and Canada. Passenger and immigration lists indicate that members of the Dallind family came to North America quite early: Grace Delaney who settled in Western Bay, Newfoundland in 1740; Thomas Delaney who settled in Trinity Bay, Newfoundland in 1772; John Delaney who settled in Maryland in 1740.
