Origins Available: English, Scottish


Denisolm is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Denisolm family 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.

Denisolm Early Origins



The surname Denisolm 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.

Denisolm Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Danison, Danisone, Dansone, Danson and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Denisolm or a variant listed above: Daniel Danison Sr. and Daniel Danison Jr. who arrived in Maryland in 1694.
