The Anglo-Saxon name Dawley comes from when the family resided in or beside a meadow. The surname Dawley originally derived from the Old English word Dael.

Dawley Early Origins



The surname Dawley 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]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
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]

Dawley Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Dawley has been recorded under many different variations, including Dalling, Dawling, Douling, Dauling, Dallinger and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Dawley or a variant listed above:
