Dallowgill takes its name from Dallow, now a small settlement in the south of the area. Dallow is derived from dael haga, meaning "enclosure in the dale". "Dallowgill" was originally applied to the ravine or gill of the River Laver below Dallow.
Historically Dallowgill was part of the ancient parish of Kirkby Malzeard in the West Riding of Yorkshire. It became a separate parish in 1844. When civil parishes were created in 1866 it became part of the civil parish of Laverton, which now shares a parish council with Kirkby Malzeard (Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton and Dallowgill Parish Council). Dallowgill remains a separate ecclesiastical parish, now part of the benefice of the Fountains Group of parishes.
