Early Origins of the Dirlingtoom family


The surname Dirlingtoom was first found in Durham at Darlington, a market-town and parish, and the head of a union, in the S. E. division of Darlington ward.

Migration of the Dirlingtoom family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Dirlingtoom family emigrate to North America: James Darlington who settled in Maryland in 1739; Joseph Darlington arrived in Philadelphia in 1856; Abraham and John Darlington settled in Pennsylvania in 1711.

The Dirlingtoom Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Cruce dum spiro spero
Motto Translation: Whilst I have breath my hope is in the cross.
