The name Dirlingtume is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in the lands of Darlington which originally derived from Deorling's farm or manor.

Early Origins of the Dirlingtume family


The surname Dirlingtume 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. "This place, the name of which is of Saxon derivation, is of considerable antiquity, and towards the close of the tenth century was, with its dependencies, granted by Seir, son of Ulphus, in the presence of King Ethelred and Archbishop Wulston, to St. Cuthbert, patron of the see of Durham, of which Aldune was then bishop.

Dirlingtume Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Dirlingtume family name include Darlington, Derlington, Darlingtone, Derlingtone and many more.

Migration of the Dirlingtume family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Dirlingtume surname or a spelling variation of the name include : 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 Dirlingtume 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.
