Doling History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Doling is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Doling family once lived in or beside a meadow. The surname Doling originally derived from the Old English word Dael. 
Early Origins of the Doling family
The surname Doling was first found in Norfolk at either Field Dalling or Wood Dalling. Collectively they date back to the Domesday Book when they were listed as Dallinga.  Later there was a split in the villages as Wode Dallinges was listed in 1198 and Fildedalling was listed in 1272. 
The parish of Wood-Dalling (anciently spelt Wode Dallinges) in Norfolk was a family seat since early times. "The Hall, now a respectable farmhouse, was built in 1582 by a member of the Dalling family, which during a long period held the estate." 
The source History of Norfolk has the following entries for the family: Phillip de Dalling, Norfolk, 10 John; Eustace de Dalling, Norfolk, 6 Edward II; Peter de Dallyng, Norfolk, 1291; and Roger Dallyng, vicar of Brooke, Norfolk, 1409. 
Further to the north in Scotland, the Dawling variant was most popular: "Robert Dawling in Leith accepts the king's coronation, 1567, and Jonet Dauling was heir of Violet Dauling, lawfully born daughter of Robert Dawling, 1637. James Dawling was member of Scots parliament for South Queensferry, 1639. Jeanna Dawling and Helena Dawling were heirs portioners of James Dawling, burgess of Sowth Queensferrie, their father, 1668. Probably of English origin from Dalling in Norfolk."

Doling 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 Doling family name include Dalling, Dawling, Douling, Dauling, Dallinger and others.
