The origins of the Dallying name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in or beside a meadow. The surname Dallying originally derived from the Old English word Dael.

Dallying Early Origins



The surname Dallying 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]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Dallying family emigrate to North America: Joe Dallinger who settled in Barbados in 1635; Cornelius Dawling settled in Virginia in 1654; Thomas Dawling arrived in Philadelphia in 1878.
