Döllinger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestral home of the Döllinger family was in the German state of Bavaria. Döllinger is a local name for a person who lived in Bavarian towns, such as Doelling, Dolling, Dölling, or Dollingen. This surname is derived from the Old German word dolle, which means grave or valley. The first Bavarian towns named Doelling were, thus, situated in a valley. After the 16th century, a period of widespread European migration, the Döllinger name spread into neighboring regions as members searched for occupations in religious, military, or political service. As a result, numerous different branches of the family name emerged.

Early Origins of the Döllinger family


The surname Döllinger was first found in Bavaria, where the family was an integral part of the feudal society which would shape modern European history. Many prominent branches of the family would strive to make this name renowned as they contributed to the social, economic and political affairs of the region. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Henne Dolling, who was in Frankfurt in 1387, Friedrich Tollinger, who was in the Upper Pfalz in 1413, and Hannus Tollig, who was in Braunau, Bohemia in 1450.

Migration of the Döllinger family to the New World and Oceana


Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Döllinger or a variant listed above:
