Dallison History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Dallison family
The surname Dallison was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Laughton. The family name is conjecturally descended from a Norman Baron who held a family seat at the Norman town of D'Alancon in Haute-Loire, Normandy.
We look to the Domesday Book of 1086 for the first record of the family in England. There we found Bernard de Alencon listed in Suffolk. Over one hundred years later, John de Alecon was listed at Whitby, Yorkshire in 1189.
In the 13th century, Alexander Dalencun and William Dalizun were both listed in Norfolk. The name is thought to have been the source for names like Allanson and Alison.

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: D'accomplir Agincourt
Motto Translation: To accomplish Agincourt
