Dalston Surname Origin
(Origin English) Belonging to Dalston = Daegel's Estate [Old English tun, estate, farm. The Anglo-Saxon personal name Daegel is from Old English daeg = Day, with the diminutive or formative suffix -el: The same personal name occurs in the place-name Daylesford (Anglo-Saxon charter-form, Daeglesford]. There is, however, some reason for believing that the second element of the Cumberland Dalston should be -stone -- Old English stan, a stone, rock, or stone castle.
