Origins Available: English, Scottish


The ancestors of the Dannisolm family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Lancashire. The name is said to be of Angevin origin, and it is likely that it is a local reference to a town now lost to the maps.

Dannisolm Early Origins



The surname Dannisolm was first found in Lancashire where conjecturally they were descended from the great Norman noble, Ive or Ivo Taillebois, who held large portions of the north of Lancashire, and that part of Westmorland which came under the barony of Kendal. The surnames also descended from this noble are Lancaster, Kendal and Irby, Bardsea, Broughton, Kirby and Preston. Ivo arrived in England with William the Conqueror, but there is little known of the family except that they were Angevin.

Dannisolm Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Danison, Danisone, Dansone, Danson and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Dannisolm or a variant listed above: Daniel Danison Sr. and Daniel Danison Jr. who arrived in Maryland in 1694.
