The name Dorlink is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in or beside a meadow. The surname Dorlink originally derived from the Old English word Dael.

Dorlink Early Origins



The surname Dorlink 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. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Later there was a split in the villages as Wode Dallinges was listed in 1198 and Fildedalling was listed in 1272. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

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." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

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

The Great Migration



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 Dorlink surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Joe Dallinger who settled in Barbados in 1635; Cornelius Dawling settled in Virginia in 1654; Thomas Dawling arrived in Philadelphia in 1878.
