Multiple Origins for the Surname Dölling



The name Dölling first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in or beside a meadow. The surname Dölling originally derived from the Old English word Dael.

Dölling Early Origins



The surname Dölling 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]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Dölling arrived in North America very early:
