Early Dollin Family Trees
Early Dollin Family Trees in England > Somerset
Early Documentation in the 1200s
A Dollin family history document given to us by a Dollin family in Chard listed the following early Dollin records:
-- 1243: William Dolling on the Assize Rolls of Somerset
-- 1275: Peter Dollyng on the Subsidy Rolls of Worchestershire
-- 1216-1272: Thomas Dollyng, John Dolling and Richard Dollyng on the Exchequer Rolls in Somerset of the reign of Kind Edward I
Dunster Records in the 1500s and 1600s
The parish records of St George Church in Dunster, Somerset, include baptisms, marriages and burials of Dollins dating back to at least the 1500s.
The records from the 1500s on these registers are very difficult to read. However, Kerry McConnell kindly transcribed many records from the 1600s onwards for us. Further details were found in a Transcript of Parish Registers for Dunster 1559-1680 that we viewed at the Somerset Heritage Centre in Taunton.
Kerry McConnell pointed out that four Dollin men (John, Robert, George and Phillip) were all having children baptised in the St George Parish Church at Dunster in the 1770s decade. She suggested that these four men might be brothers.
Reconstructing records this far back is very difficult as the information available is so limited. However, it might be useful to present our theories as they stand at present. This is research in progress and if anyone can assist us with this section, could you please contact us?

The following chart gives a reconstructed ancestry tree based on parish records in the 1700s of the Dollin family in the Dunster area of Somerset, England.
It begins with Robert Dollin, the father of Henry Dollin baptised in 1699 and works down through four generations of Dollins in Dunster, England, to our direct ancestors, John Dollin and Mary Ann Gould, married in 1820.
It is based on baptism, marriage and burial records in the St George Church, Dunster. The parish records of this church on microfilm were kindly examined in detail for the Dollin family by Kerry McConnell. A valuable online transcript of most of these records has also been prepared by Phil Mustoe on the Genuki website.
