Dearing Family HistoryThis ancient surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal names "Deoring" or "Dyring", patronymic forms of "Deor" or "Dyre", meaning "Dear, Beloved". The Olde English suffix "-ing", when attached to a personal name, denoted "the sons, descendants, or dependants (of the person named)". There is a Kentish tenant, Derinc filius (son of) Sired, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and one "Dierling(us)", appears in the 1185 Knights' Templars Records of Kent.
