Dinninton Early Origins



The surname Dinninton was first found in South Yorkshire at Dinnington, a town now part of the Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham. The town dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Dunintone and literally meant "estate associated with a man called Dunn(a)" from the Old English personal name + ing + tun.

Dinnington is also a village and civil parish in Somerset and a village and civil parish in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne in Tyne and Wear. So, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Dinnington, occupied by Roger le Bully, a Norman noble listed in the Domesday Book who was under-tenant to William of Warrene.
