Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Tollinger family. The Tollinger surname evolved as a local name for a family that 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 Tollinger 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.

Tollinger Early Origins



The surname Tollinger 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Tollinger or a variant listed above:
