Dering is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Dering family lived in Kent, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages.

Dering Early Origins



The surname Dering was first found in Kent where the family claim descendancy from "Norman de Morinis, whose ancestor, Vitalis FitzOsbert, lived in the reign of Henry II. Norman de Morinis married the daughter of Deringus, descended from the Norman Fitz-Dering, Sheriff of this county in King Stephens' reign. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Derrington is a village west of the town of Stafford, in Staffordshire. The village dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Dodintone and literally meant "estate associated with a man called Dod(d)a or Dud(d)a" from the Old English personal name + "-ing" + "tun."

Dering 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 Dering, Deareing, Dearing, Deering, Derringer and many more.

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 Dering or a variant listed above:
