Dial 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. Dial has been recorded under many different variations, including Dale, Daile, Dales, Dayle, Daele 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 Dial or a variant listed above:

Dial Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Margaret Dial, who landed in South Carolina in 1772
  • William Dial, who arrived in South Carolina in 1772

Dial Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Edward Dial, who arrived in New York, NY in 1811
