Dallas Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon and Scottish origin, and has two possible sources, the first being a topographical name for someone who lived in a house by the valley, derived from the Old English pre 7th Century "dael", valley, and "hus" house; the name could also be from a placename with this origin, such as Dalehouse in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The second source is locational from a place near Forres, thought to derive from the ancient British pre Roman "dol", meadow, itself derived from the Gaelic "dail", and the British "gwas", dwelling, and means "dwelling by the meadow"...
