* The Dallas Family + connections - The Pynn's of Newfoundland*

Updated April 9, 2006


The Dallas family is of great antiquity in the counties of Elgin and Nairn in Scotland UK, dating back to at least the 13th century.
The family can be traced from Scotland to Jamaica where they were lawyers, probably associated with the slave trade and sugar plantations.
Alexander James Dallas emigrated from Jamaica to the USA and his son George Mifflin Dallas became the 11th Vice President under the Polk Administration and subsequently Ambassador to the United Kingdom. During his tenure of the Vice Presidency Texas joined the Union and the City of Dallas is named after him.

Subsequent generations returned from Jamaica to the UK where the current line of descendants has continued.
