This interesting surname has two possible origins. The first being locational "of Dilwyn" in Herefordshire, recorded as "Dilun" in 1138, and deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "diglum", a retreat. Locational surnames were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace. A second possibility is that the name derives from a Germanic personal name "Dillo", meaning "the destroyer", introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066...
