Dallinger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The lineage of the name Dallinger begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in or beside a meadow. The surname Dallinger originally derived from the Old English word Dael. 
Early Origins of the Dallinger family
The surname Dallinger 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.  Later there was a split in the villages as Wode Dallinges was listed in 1198 and Fildedalling was listed in 1272. 
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." 
The source History of Norfolk has the following entries for the family: Phillip de Dalling, Norfolk, 10 John; Eustace de Dalling, Norfolk, 6 Edward II; Peter de Dallyng, Norfolk, 1291; and Roger Dallyng, vicar of Brooke, Norfolk, 1409. 
Further to the north in Scotland, the Dawling variant was most popular: "Robert Dawling in Leith accepts the king's coronation, 1567, and Jonet Dauling was heir of Violet Dauling, lawfully born daughter of Robert Dawling, 1637. James Dawling was member of Scots parliament for South Queensferry, 1639. Jeanna Dawling and Helena Dawling were heirs portioners of James Dawling, burgess of Sowth Queensferrie, their father, 1668. Probably of English origin from Dalling in Norfolk."

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. 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 Dallinger were among those contributors:

| Dallinger migration to West Indies ||+|
The British first settled the British West Indies around 1604. They made many attempts but failed in some to establish settlements on the Islands including Saint Lucia and Grenada. By 1627 they had managed to establish settlements on St. Kitts (St. Christopher) and Barbados, but by 1641 the Spanish had moved in and destroyed some of these including those at Providence Island. The British continued to expand the settlements including setting the First Federation in the British West Indies by 1674; some of the islands include Barbados, Bermuda, Cayman Island, Turks and Caicos, Jamaica and Belize then known as British Honduras. By the 1960's many of the islands became independent after the West Indies Federation which existed from 1958 to 1962 failed due to internal political conflicts. After this a number of Eastern Caribbean islands formed a free association.
