Dann Family HistoryThis surname of Anglo-Saxon origin is a topographical name for a dweller in the valley, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "denu" meaning "valley". Topographical surnames were among the earliest created since both natural and man made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages.The surname dates back to the early 14th Century, (see below). Further recordings include one Simon Dann (1332), "The Subsidy Rolls of Sussex".
