An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The rugged west coast of Scotland in the kingdom of Dalriada is the setting from which came the Denielstome name. The name derives from someone having lived near a place named Danzielstoun, in Scotland. Thus Denielstome is a local surname, which belongs to a category of hereditary surnames derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Denielstome Early Origins



The surname Denielstome was first found in Renfrewshire, at Danzielstoun, in the parish of Kilmalcolm. "The manor took its name from some man named Daniel, and it bore this name as early as the reign of Malcolm IV", [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

who died in 1165. It is generally thought that the town was founded about 1060.

The Great Migration



Numerous Scottish settlers settled along the east coast of the colonies that would become the United States and Canada. Others traveled to the open country of the west. At the time of the American War of Independence, some remained in the United States, while those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The highland games and Clan societies that sprang up across North America in the 20th century have helped many Scots to recover parts of their lost traditions. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Denielstomes to arrive in North America: Sam Denniston who settled in New York in 1774; and John Denniston, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1802.
