This August 2007 issue of “Daltons in History” is being prepared early and will be published on our website around 25th July. This is because all the DGS officers and committee are travelling to Worcester for the 2007 DGS Gathering and AGM which commences on Friday 27th and concludes on Monday 30th July. So, by the time you read this, we will either be in Worcester, or more probably our Worcester event will have taken place. The next issue of “Daltons in History”, which will be published on 1st September, will carry a full report of all the events and activities due to take place during the weekend.

2008 Gathering in Ireland

If you have not been able to join us in Worcester this year, then put the dates of Friday 1st to Monday 4th August 2008 in your diary. This is when our 2008 Gathering will take place in Birr, Co Offaly, Ireland. We have booked Dooly’s Hotel as the venue, with its excellent conference facilities for our meetings and the annual dinner. Delegates will be able to stay at Dooly’s and we have also arranged additional accommodation at three nearby places offering bed and breakfast. Birr is located in the heart of mid-Ireland about two hours drive west of Dublin, and a similar distance east of Shannon. It is a beautiful old Georgian town with an impressive castle and much of interest to the visitor. It is also well situated to enable us to make a number of visits to places with Dalton connections. Look out for further details, including a full programme for the weekend, costs and booking arrangements, which will be published on this website in October.

Michael Dalton

In May 2007, Michael Dalton visited the village of Seagrave in Leicestershire and discovered various Dalton memorials in the church for James Edward Dalton and his nephew William Henry Dalton, who were rectors of the parish during the second half of the nineteenth century. Here is an account of what he found and a record of the memorials.

John Dalton (1780 - 1851) and Hannah Neale (1784 - 1822) of Peckham, London had twelve children, the eldest of whom was James Edward Dalton (1807 - 1889). James read mathematics at Queens College, Cambridge where he was 10th Wrangler on taking his BA degree in 1830. In 1832 he became a Fellow of Queens College and, in 1833, Curate of the Round Church, Cambridge. He remained a Fellow of Queens and was also Curate of St Sepulchre’s until 1852 when he wished to marry. This involved resigning his fellowship and leaving Cambridge after over 20 years at the University. He married Phoebe, the youngest daughter of T W Mellor, Esq of Denmark Hill, London SE. One of the livings in the gift of Queens College was Seagrave in Leicestershire, with a valuation of £404 annually, and it was to this village that James and Phoebe went. James was rector of Seagrave from 1852 until his death, 37 years later, in 1889. Phoebe died in 1881. They had no children.

The third child and third son of John Dalton and Hannah Neale was William Henry Dalton (1809 - 1884), a bookseller of Cockspur Street in London. He married Martha Bossum and they had three sons, the second of whom was William Henry, born in 1838. William Henry Dalton went up to Clare College, Cambridge in 1858 and, like his uncle, he read mathematics graduating BA in 1862 and MA in 1865. He married Elizabeth Harriet, only daughter of Frederick Sheppard of Westminster in 1863, by whom he had a large family of six daughters and two sons, one with Dalton descendants living in Canada today. After a brief curacy at Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire he went for a short time to be Theological Tutor at the Protestant College in Malta. He then held curacies at churches in Islington, London, in Southborough near Tunbridge Wells, Kent and in Watford, Hertfordshire, before becoming Vicar of St Judes, Chelsea, London from 1872 to 1888. In 1889, on the death of his uncle, he became Rector of Seagrave until his death in 1900 at the age of 62.

Seagrave is a delightful village set in the Leicestershire countryside a few miles north of Leicester itself. It still retains much of its old charm as the photographs of the Parish Church of All Saints show. Inside the church there are a number of memorials to the two Dalton Rectors and they tell their own story of service to the church and to the local community.

From Millicent Craig

DGS member Carol Jefferies of Stittsville, Ontario, Canada submitted an article about her boat builder Dalton ancestors and their rugged life in this remote area of Newfoundland. An itinerant minister made the journey to tend to his flock and kept a diary of the difficulties in reaching an industrious and ingenious but isolated group of people. The introduction and first 5 parts were published in the July issue of "Daltons in History". Parts 6 to 12 conclude the story.

Diary of the Minister

Part 6

In the afternoon, walking on the ice being good, a visit was made to Mr John DALTON’s (our great grandfather at this time married to Dorcas Taylor) Dock, at Killick Island, where a schooner of about forty tons is being constructed, under the superintendence of his brother, Mr Matthew DALTON (John's half brother). Here are four tilts, in one of which dwells his venerable father, the other two being occupied by the workmen. My first salute on entering the Dock, unobserved, was to the master himself, unnecessarily telling him to “Draw the line straight” – he was then penciling a piece of timber. Happily, the men, women and children, were in good health, and had been, with but little exception, during the winter. A visit being made to each of these tilts, for the purpose of reading the Scriptures and prayer, and tea being over, my steps were at once bent back to Northern Arm in time to conduct Divine Service, according to pre-arrangements. During my stay here of eight days, eight preaching services were conducted, besides prayer and class meetings. Thirty-two families were visited, in reaching which, a distance of forty-two miles were tramped, chiefly on rackets, and to eight children, the Sacrament of Baptism was administered. By several of the Brethren – Messrs. Luke MANUEL, and Wm. EVANS at Northern Arm, and Messrs. Matthew DALTON, Jr., and M. DALTON, Sr., (this being John and Matthew's father) at Killick Island, the services, week day and Sabbath, have been regularly conducted, during the winter, under whose instrumentality, several have been converted to God, and are now meeting in class.

Part 7

One of my visits here was incidentally marked by a very affecting scene. At Ship Cove, Peter’s Arm, on entering a tilt, I found a man whom age and disease had reduced to a mere skeleton, who was blind, and almost deaf, and whose latent fire was well nigh extinguished, bent low on his knees, between the wall and the stove, with the raised oven for his canopy, in the attitude of prayer. He was most piteously pleading with the Lord to prepare him for, and take him to, the Better Land. I was told that this, during the winter, had been his daily practice, when he was able to get up out of bed. About two years ago, Richard JURE lost his eyesight, under which affliction he became alarmed at his long life of sin and impenitence, sought the Lord sincerely, and experienced the joy of His salvation. About a year ago, while a little boy was leading him along a slide path through the woods, I met him, when, after a little conversation, he said with many tears, “I don’t know much, but I know the Lord has pardoned all my sins. ”Since my return from the Bay, his death has been announced, and we have every reason to believe he has gone to that Better Land, for which he pleaded with God, through Christ, so earnestly and often, under the back part of the stove.”

Part 8

My next remove, was from Northern Arm to Kite Cove, where seven, very comfortable days and nights were spent, under the roof of Mr. John DALTON. At Kite Cove and Burnt Arm, between which, over a neck of land, is a distance of about half a mile, eight schooners, of medium and small size are in course of construction: viz. – four at Burnt Arm, by Mr. Frederick JURE, whose combined cubical measure will reach about one hundred tons; two at Kite Cove, by Mr. John DALTON, which, including a third at Killick Island, will measure about one hundred and thirty five tons; and another by Mr. John MANUEL and sons, about eighteen tons. Here we greeted a number of our Harbor men, who with their families, had settled for the winter, amid the recesses of the woods, for the purposes of lumbering and schooner building, among whom were Mr. George MANUEL and his family, under whose superintendence, the largest of Mr. John DALTON’s schooners is being built.

Here were held eight preaching services, most of which being followed by a prayer meeting or class. From first to last, though the walking was difficult and heavy, the attendance was remarkably good. On the Sunday morning, the weather being fine, although a large quantity of recently fallen snow lay on the ground, and a distance had to be tramped, to and fro, which cost nearly two hours of hard labor, the pride of my heart for the Sabbath, obstinately revolted against the use of coarse week-day pants, buskins, moccasins, and rackets, consequently, it compelled me to don a pair of West of England drap fin, and a pair of Canadian rubber gaiters, but I must confess that long before the journey was ended, the pride of my heart most humbly submitted to the powerful acquisitions of my joints and muscles, and to the effusions of perspiration that were sent to the surface of my flesh, and resolved never again, wittingly, to usurp such absolute authority over the inferior members that have to do the drudgery.

Part 9

Thirty-two visits were made among the tilts and dwelling houses, twenty-two miles were traveled, chiefly on rackets, and three children were baptized. Here, as at Northern Arm and Killick Island, the usual services have been systematically maintained by several of the Brethren – Messrs. Percival and Solomon MANUEL at Kite Cove, and Mr. Frederick JURE at Burnt Arm. It would simply be impossible to sustain the work of this large circuit with anything like system and regularity, if it were not happily for the fact that a number of the Lord’s people have become prophets. May the Lord increase the number and kind!

My next jaunt was from Kite Cove to Philip’s Head, to which place, on account of the snow being very wet and heavy for racket-walking, and yet not too deep for the horse to walk through, I was kindly driven by Mr. John DALTON. Here reside, within a distance of about a mile from each other, three families. In one of them the Rite of Baptism was administered, in the other two we read the Scriptures and prayed, giving them all an invitation to attend the service which was arranged to be held at the Point of The Bay in the evening. Accompanied by William MARCH, we set out leisurely for the Point, keeping close to the shore. That part of the day, which was beautifully fine and mild, (although a heavy storm of snow and wind came on in the evening), and that jaunt, occupying about one hour and a half, just constituted the cream of my tramping excursions. In the evening, Divine Service was held in the tilt of Henry STRIDE, at which were present a number from the Head, in addition to the occupants of the surrounding tilts. That service was truly felt to be a means of Grace, and the prayers that were afterward offered, strongly attested the presence and benediction of God.

Part 10

A large quantity of snow, which fell during the night, considerably increased the difficulty of traveling the next day. With two men, however, Henry and Abel STRIDE, who volunteered their company, we started across the Bay for Sparble Cove, which, after a tramp on our rackets of one hour and a half, we reached about mid-day. A strong breeze blowing from the West with intense frost occasionally enveloped us in a cloud of snowdrift and threatened our ears with harm, if not protected. Feeling conscious of this fact, I said to our friend Abel, who was going on gallio like, caring for none of these things, “Won’t your ears freeze?” “No sir”, said he, “My ears are frost proof; They never freeze”! Here we found, cozily embosomed in the adjacent woods, five tilts, occupied by our own people, who were engaged in cutting, scantling and sawing board. We directed our steps to the tilts of our friends, Francis LUFF and family, who acted the Good Samaritan for us two years ago. A call on a near neighbor of ours, George LACEY and family, and a further racket tramp to Robert PORTER’s completed the day’s work.Here, at 11 o’clock, A.M., Sunday, Divine Service was held. This capacious house proved to be beautiful for the situation, being fortuitously located about midway between the tilts of Sparble Cove and those of Brown’s Arm. In it, many Services have been conducted during the winter. In the afternoon, it was my happy lot to visit the worthy veterans of the Arm, who for three winters in succession, with but a few exceptions, have lived and labored, taught and prayed together, as in mutual confederacy.

Part 11

We took for our text Job’s sublime confession and life long resolve, - “My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go, my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live. ”Job xxvii, 6. Although the discourse was entirely unwritten, and indeed, for want of time, unpremeditated, I never spoke with greater freedom and happiness in my life! {Nibil perniciousius est quam adulatio, sui ipsiur adulato praesortim.} The Spirit of the Lord helped our infirmities, and rested upon us as truly and vitally as the atmosphere with which we were surrounded. In the evening was held a third service, which was followed by a prayer meeting. Here, during the winter, with the utmost fidelity and regularity, the ordinary means of grace have been conducted by Messrs. Simon MANUEL, John ROWSALL, and John FRAMPTON. Here reside twelve families, most of whom, at Sparble Cove, and Point of the Bay, are engaged in lumbering, except Mr. Simon MANUEL, who is building a schooner about thirty five tons.

On Monday, accompanied by Mr. Robert PORTER, a further trip on rackets was made to Laird’s Arm and Scissor’s Cove, at each of which places, the work of schooner building was vigorously carried on. One, about twenty tons, by William SNOW and son, and the other, about thirty-five tons, by William CHALK and sons. At Burley Cove, another schooner was in course of construction, by Mr. BULLION of Twillingate. Half a dozen pastoral visits, one Baptism, two preaching services, - one at Scissors Cove and the other at Laird’s Arm, - brought this day’s work to a close. On the next morning, after performing a marriage ceremony, and making a visit to two other tilts, we left Laird’s Arm for John PORTER’s, Brown’s Arm, and Sparble Cove, where in the evening, Divine Service was conducted. My jaunts to and from these adjacent places, lasted until Friday morning, and involved a distance of twenty-six miles, the visitation of thirty-six families, nine preaching services, with prayer and class meetings, and six Baptisms. – Signed: J.P.

Part 12

On Friday morning, in company with Messrs. Simon MANUEL and Robert PORTER, we left Brown’s Arm for Gober’s Harbor. The first part of the journey was characterized by good firm walking, but on approaching the North side of the Bay, and within about three miles of Gober’s Harbor, we were impeded by a thin stratum of ice, under which lay from three to six inches of fresh water. This inflicted considerable damage on our boots, and put an extra hour of labor upon the length of our tramp. Here reside, in four tilts, five families, who belong to Black Island, and who have hibernated for the purpose of lumbering and boat building. It is needless to say they were pleased to see us. The short time during which we stayed here was marked by the reception, as well as by the giving of Christian instruction and admonition. Soon after we had entered the tilt of Moses PELLY, the old gentleman, his father, George PELLY, came in from the woods for his mid-day meal. This was the first of which he had partaken that day, his only reason, as he told us, being the remembrance of the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. That man, who is about half way through his ninth decade said, “My Savior suffered death upon the Cross for me, and it would seem strange if I could not fast for a little time, on this memorable day – Good Friday – for him!” A further conversation with him, revealed the fact, that beyond a dose of salts, he had never to his knowledge, taken any medicine, that beyond having the measles, he had never been ill, that he was then enjoying good health, and that under the most blessed assurances, he was prayerfully waiting his Master’s Call. Early in the afternoon, a service commemorative of the crucifixion of our Lord, was conducted in the tilt of Charles STRIDE.

From Millicent Craig

During the first two weeks of July the mail was especially heavy with many interesting reports from our American members. Lenny Dalton of MA was the recipient of more research from his DNA match Mike F. Dalton in England; Jennifer Norwood is just getting back into research after the passing of two of her brothers; Cathy Negrycz of Fl and her daughter Regina will attend the DGS and Clan Dalton Gathering in Birr, Offaly on August 1, 2, 3, 4, 2008 and also research their ancestry in County Cork: Etta Rodriguez is also planning her research trip in Ireland to coincide with the Birr gathering. It is time to start making your research plans and marking your 2008 calendar. There will be a large group of Americans in attendance. A few items from our mail bag are listed below.


The DGS Secretary for Ireland and Chieftain of our Clan, Ciaran Dalton, has added to our knowledge of why the DNA of an individual in a surname study might not match others in the same study.

Ciaran writes that "Fosterage was very common in early Ireland. Clan chiefs would foster some children out even to their enemies to create alliances". Fosterage was a common practice in the Hebrides and also in England at the time of the Norman invasion of Ireland. The English sent children to Irish families to be fostered until the practice was banned but nevertheless it continued. The details and laws governing fostering can be read in The Oxford Companion to Irish History, edited by S. J. Connolly, Oxford University Press. Also a fascinating read are several web sites: A Smaller Social History of Ancient Ireland at:

and Adoption and Fosterage in Gaelic Cultures v. 1.0 by Alix MacAnTsaoir at:

Non matches in Dalton surnames are credited to such non paternity events as illegitimacy, adoption, surname changes, and rearing by relatives. Fosterage in medieval times had a complete set of inter family rules and sheds light on some early non paternity events that could affect the inability of an individual's DNA to match others with the same surname. If you are aware of any other types of non paternity events, please pass them on to: And if you have not had your Dalton DNA tested, please visit the DGS home page, read the material on the DNA Project web site, and then contact the Project Coordinator, Millicent Craig at the above e-mail address.


Attendees at the Dalton Gathering in Hampton NH in the Fall of 2006 will remember DGS member John White our nonagenarian who spoke of his possible ancestry to a William White who had accompanied Philemon Dalton to the new world from around Dennington, England in 1635. Although his book was ready for the publisher, John still questioned the age of William noted as 14 on the ship's passenger list.

John has just received 65 pages of documentary evidence that was compiled in 1910 by Dr. Charles Abiathar White of Boston and other members of the White family. This William White arrived in Boston in 1645 to work in the iron foundry in Lynn, MA. He was the most knowledgeable man in England about building brick furnaces, smelting iron ore, metallurgy, alchemy and mechanical devices. Letters by this William prove that he is John's William White and not the William White who came with Philemon Dalton. Naturally, John will make another revision to his huge manuscript. Congratulations, John.
