A paper has recently been published by researchers from the Department of Genetics at Leicester University. This looked at 40 British surnames and their variants - including the names Dalgleish and Daglish.
Some years ago the researchers - Professor Mark Jobling and Dr. Turi King - contacted people with the surnames being studied requesting DNA samples. Under the terms of the study, the identities of the participants are confidential; the results are by surname only.
The results of the study can be found in the Supplemental Table here:

The results of this study give some excellent matches with my Daglish DNA Study, suggesting that Daglish may be a variant of Dalgleish (as shown in many surname dictionaries, but which has so far been difficult to confirm through paper records).
Anyone interested in participating can find details of the Daglish DNA Study at:
