    A General Note on the Dalys

    As you all know, most Dalys come from Ireland. But there are some English Dalys and some French Dalys. The variations in the spelling of the name seem to have little bearing on the relationships until after at least 1800, when more people were literate and spellings became more solidified. The theory is that all Irish Dalys are related. Probably a good many if not most the English Dalys are related to the Irish Dalys too. A relationship between the French Dalys and the Irish does not seem to exist, except in as much as some French Dalys may have immigrated to Ireland, or vice versa. A number of the French Dalys or probably more properly Daillys, were Huguenots, and emigrated to England, the Netherlands, and America. In New Amsterdam, their name took on numerous spellings. There seems to be little or no evidence however that their name was ever d'Ailly or any variant with the apostrophe. No variations of that kind appear in the New Amsterdam church records (Dutch or French), and the name does not exist currently in either North America or Europe. It is unclear to me where genealogists have come up with that form.

    Which brings me to the question of the name Allee, some places written d'Allee. Again, the apostrophe version does not exist in the records, nor is it in current use anywhere. Those names written D'Allee or variations on that theme also seem to be mistaken. The name is Allee, or in some places Allie, and in modern use also Alley, and Alyea. It is unclear whether it is of French or English origin; it occurs in both France and England. Quite possibly the English name represents a very early French immigration (with William?).

    The old Irish spelling of Daly was Dalaigh.Over time, there has been a tendency to simplify the name. The oldest of the modern spellings seems to be Dailey. The intermediate forms are Daily, and Daley. The most modern form is the most simple, Daly. The initial 'O' is optional in all cases.

    The O'Dalaigh is one of many of the clans of Ireland that trace its heritage to a single common ancestor. The accepted O'Dalaigh ancestral records beginning at the earliest reliable historical period center on King Niall of the Nine Hostages. Niall (pronounced Nall) reigned as Ireland's high king from A.D. 379 to 405. The O'Dalaigh ancestry of times more remote than the age of Niall is linked to the "House of Heremon" by Ireland's ancient bardic genealogists. Heremon, the seventh son of King Milesius of Spain, ruled in the 17th century B.C. For the descendancy of Heremon to the Dalaigh, and for the Coat of Arms, see O'Dalaigh.

    If anyone has more enlightening information on these questions, I would love to hear from you.
