The surname Dinsdale appears six times in my family tree. The earliest person is John Dinsdale, my 3x great grandfather. The other five are all his children – four daughters and one son:-
Elsy – born about 1816
John – born about 1819
Mary – born about 1819
Hannah – born about 1821 (my 2x great grandmother)
Alice – born about 1824
According to surnamedb Dinsdale is of locational origin from places called “Low Dinsdale” in Durham, recorded as “Ditneshall” in the Early Yorkshire Charters (c1185) and “Over Dinsdale” in Yorkshire, appearing as “Digneshale” in the Domesday Book of 1086.
My Dinsdale’s appear to come from Arncliffe in the Yorkshire Dales. So far I have not had much success in finding them in the census records but I am having another go after I finish writing and publishing this post.
