In Reply to: Re: What does Dollery mean? by Frederic W Dollery of 249

Hello - I have a Certificate from the 'Historical Research Center' (USA) that suggests the name may possibly be English - derived from the Old English word 'dawl' meaning 'boundary', indicating 'one who dwells near a boundary'. Alternatively - it is also possible that 'Dollery' is of Norman origin and indicates 'one who comes from Ouilly' - the name of five places in Calvados - Normandy, France. First noted in 1663 in America - Anthony Dollery - Virginia ! of course.
