GELENG FAMILY ANCESTRY
The Geleng Surname was first found in Prussia, where the name emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region.Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were settlers who travelled to the New World and established themselves along the eastern seaboard of the US and Canada in the 18th & 19th centuries.
DILLON FAMILY ANCESTRY
The name is of Hiberno-Norman origins, and is particularly widespread in counties Meath, Roscommon and Westmeath. The first person to come to Ireland with the name was Sir Henry de Leon, from a small town of the same name in Britanny, France. He arrived in 1185, immediately after the Anglo-Norman invasion.Over the years, the name has become accepted as an Irish rather than a Norman name: in Irish it is ?Duille?n.
