The surname Dannatt is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Dannatt family lived in Sussex. The family was originally from D'Anet, in Normandy, and it is from this location that their surname derives.

Dannatt Early Origins



The surname Dannatt was first found in Leicestershire 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 13th century when they held estates in that shire.
