DALBY Family History

This interesting name is of Old Norse origin, and is a locational surname deriving from any one of the places called Dalby, in Lincolnshire, near Spilsby; in Leicestershire near Melton Mowbray, and in North Yorkshire near Terrington. All three places are recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Dalbi", and all share the same meaning and derivation, which is "the farm in the valley", from the Old Norse "dalr", valley, with "byr", farm, settlement. The surname is found most frequently in Yorkshire, and therefore probably derives mainly from Dalby in that county.
