    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place in Cumbria, first recorded in 1220 in its present form. There is a chapel of Saint Martin here, and the valley (see Dale ) may be named from this. Alternatively, there may have been a landowner here called Martin, and the church dedication may be due to popular association of his name with that of the saint.
