Dalway History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Dalway family

The surname Dalway was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1273 when John Dalwey held estates in that shire.

  • Mr. James Dalway, (Edwards, Thomas), Welsh convict who was convicted in Denbigh, Denbighshire, Wales for life, transported aboard the "Caledonia" in 19th June 1822, arriving in Tasmania (Van Diemen's Land) [1]


The Dalway Motto +

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: Notandi sunt tibi mores
Motto Translation: You must observe the behavior
