Dunsing Early Origins



The surname Dunsing was first found in Berwickshire where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in Duns in 1150 when Hugh le Duns held the estates. It is most likely that the family were of Norman origin from Dunster Castle and may have been related to William de Moyon of Moion in Normandy. The original Duns Castle was built in 1320 by the Earl of Moray, nephew of Robert the Bruce.
