Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Dignome is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Dinham, a hamlet in the county Monmouthshire.

Dignome Early Origins



The surname Dignome was first found in Monmouthshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Dignomes to arrive in North America: Thomas Dinham, who came to Virginia in 1731; George Dinham, who arrived in New England in 1763; as well as Daniel, James, Michael, and Thomas Dinan, who all settled in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..
