There have been many queries concerning Dalton Coats of Arms that we will attempt to answer in this and successive articles. Our DGS Historian, Dr. Lucy J. Slater of Cambridge, England has written a short history that has been previously printed but worth repeating as an introduction to the series that begins in this issue.

In the "General Armory, English, Scotland, Ireland and Wales" by Sir Bernard Burke, CB US, Ulster Kings of Arms, 1967, there are 24 Dalton Coats of Arms listed in abbreviated Latin. Heraldry language. Dr.Slater has transcribed them and in the course of the next few months the more important ones will be printed accompanied by information on the family. Extensive information on many of the lines has been published in the Journals of the Dalton Genealogical Society. For further information, contact Dr. Slater: e-mail,

The Dalton Coat of Arms by Dr. Lucy Joan Slater

There are many variants of the Dalton Coat of Arms which have been used by various branches of the Dalton family. One of these you can see at the head of this newsletter. A Coat of Arms came into use in the days when men could not read but had to identify their leader when even his face was fully covered in armour. At first, it was a simple pattern put on his shield. As time went on, these patterns became more formalised and were recorded by men called Heralds to make sure that there was no mistake in the use of such shields. Imagine the chaos which could result in two leaders on different sides in the battle, using the same coat of arms!

The Heralds formalised these patterns, naming and recording the parts of the design and the colours used. Our Coat of Arms has two parts, a Shield and a Crest.

The earliest recorded Dalton shield was a blue painted shield with a silver lion standing on its hind legs with its claws out ready to attack you. This is described in the language of Heraldry as “A shield azure propre with a lion argent rampant guardant”. Such a shield was carried in the battle of Borroughbridge in 1322 by Sir Robert Dalton of Pickering Castle, Yorkshire and later at the battle of Crecy. (See DGSJ Vol. 5 p. 22 and Joseph Foster’s Feudal Coats of Arms, p. 62.)
The Crest was originally mounted on a helmet but here rests on an ermine cuff which is placed above the shield

In the reign of Henry VIII, (see The Ancestor, Vol. XI, No. 17) we find that “Dalton beareth as his crest, a dragon vert, langued geules or, gourged ermine”. This means a green dragon’s head, with open golden wings and a coller of ermine”. Legend has it that Sir Richard Dalton of Byspam, who was a Crusader in 1187, killed a Saracen in the Holy Land, and so he took the green griffin as his crest. Our griffin is sometimes called a dragon or a wyvern.

A man’s sons had to have shields which were similar to their father’s but with slight differences to show which son was carrying the shield. Thus the concept of differencing came into use. The main Dalton difference was gold crosslets on the shield, for the eldest son. This pattern is used on our Dalton Society shield, and shows that the man who founded the Lancashire branch of the Dalton family was probably the eldest son of Sir Robert of Pickering. Another difference was to have groups of three golden feathers in place of the crosslets. This form of the shield was used by the Irish branch of the family.

Our Society was granted the right to use this shield, by the Royal College of Arms (See DGSJ Vol. 1, p.5, & Vol. 5, p.20.) as our main aim in the first place was to study all descendants of the Lancashire branch of the family.

Lancaster Transcriptions by Dr. Lucy J. Slater

1. Dalton, County Lancaster
This is a quartered shield (but does not say which family is quartered). 1st and 4th quarters, a blue shield, with small crosses and a lion rampant, guardant in silver, but with a gold crown, meaning that the Dalton who used it was knighted. The 2nd and 3rd quarters of the shield had six bars in silver and blue, and bore three diamond shapes on the lower part of the shield in red.
2. Dalton, Bispham, County Lancaster
The shield was blue with little gold crosses and a lion rampant guardant in silver. On the upper third of the chield there were four bars with wavy lower sides, in the last colour mentioned, (ie. silver) and black. The crest was the usual dragon's head in green between two wings of gold but there was no cuff.
3. Dalton (Thurnham, originally of Bispham, County Lancaster)
The heiress, Elizabeth Dalton, elder daughter of Robert Dalton, Esq. of Thurnham, married William Hoghton, Esq. of Park Hall. They had a son, John Hoghton who assumed the surname and arms of Dalton.
A blue shield strewn with small crosses with bars across their arms and a lion rampant guardant in silver. This is the usual Dalton Shield. The Crest is a dragon's head in green, between two wings, in gold. This is also the usual Dalton Crest but with no cuff.
4.Dalton-Fitzgerald (Sir James Richard Fitzgerald, 9th bart., of Castle Ishen, County Cork, Ireland; Thurnham Hall, County Lancaster, and Bigods Hall, County Essex, on assuming the name Dalton in addition to and preceding that of Fitzgerald, by Royal Licence dated 4 April 1867).
This is a quartered shield, a Fitzgerald quartered with Dalton. The 1st and 4th quarters are Fitzgerald and the 2nd and 3rd are Dalton ( that is to say a Fitzgerald man married a Dalton woman). So 1st and 3rd quarters, were an ermine shield, with a diagonal cross in red. The 2nd and 4th quarters were a blue shield with a lion rampant guardant and a border of small crosses with a bar across each arm in silver.
The 1st crest for Fitzgerald, is a red boar standing on all four legs, with bristles and gold claws and tusks. The second crest is for Dalton, with a dragon's head in green between two wings in gold but not touching the edge of the shield.
Motto: Shanet a boo. No literal translation of the Fitzgerald Motto has been located to date. It is thought to be a corruption of Shanid, a land grant in County Limerick to the Fitzgeralds in 1197 and the site of Shanid Castle. Suggestions range from the battle cry "Shanet to Victory" to "My Home is My Castle", "Long Live" etc.
On the lighter side, MacLysaght (connected by marriage to the Daltons of Bunratty, County Clare), offers this story of Thomas, the son of Maurice Fitzgerald. When he was an infant, he was temporarily abducted by a "tame" ape who took him to the battlements atop the castle. The ape returned to his cradle unharmed. Thomas became known in Irish as Thomas an Apa and in Latin as Thomas Simiacus. MacLysaght also gives "Shanid abu" as the warcry of the Desmond Fitzgeralds. This bit is courtesy of K. T. Mapstone.

Editor's note: In July 2002 "Daltons in History", a second installment of Dalton Coats of Arms will be printed. If you are aware of a source of coloured prints of Dalton Coats of Arms, please be in touch so that they may accompany the transcriptions. More information on Thurnham Daltons is contained in the following extracts of Thurnham Recusants.


DGS Archivist, Michael Cayley, has located a unique set of Dalton records that were excerpted by the Catholic Record Society in England. They contain, baptisms, marriages, burials, lists of convicted recusants (non-conformists), prisoners, seminarians and the like.

Selected from the extracts are entries pertaining to the Catholic family of Daltons in Thurnham and in the surrounding Lancaster/Lancashire area. It is a follow-on from the preceding article on Dalton Coats of Arms. Other selections from the records will follow in successive issues.

The Thurnham family of Daltons is the subject of an entire book, "The Dalton Book" and is available from the DGS. The ancestry of this line has also been charted and many articles about the family have appeared in the DGS Journals.

About This Report
During the month of May 2002, the Virginia file of Daltons was uploaded to the DALTON DATA BANK. The 1880 Census of Virginia is part of the file and yields a few observations that may be helpful to someone. Migration patterns, given names and the occurence of twins are hallmarks of Daltons who lived in this state.

Dalton Virginians in 1880
In no other state thus far examined (including the Northern Colonies) has it been found that such a large number of Dalton families remained in a state generation after generation. Of the 772 Daltons who were enumerated in the 1880 Census of Virginia, over 97 % were born in the state (going back three generations or more). The in-flow of new Daltons to the state was less than 3% with immigrants from North Carolina and Ireland accounting for most.. The state did not participate in the wave of Dalton newcomers who arrived from Europe in the 1800's.

Including wives, the 1880 Census shows that an additional 165 Virginia born Daltons migrated to other states. (This does not include Dalton children who were born at the new locations). Ohio accounted for 65 or 40% of the VA migrants; Tennessee 33 or 20%; West Virginia 19 or 11%; and 10 each went to Colorado, Kentucky and Missouri.

Unless there was a wave of newcomers in the 1700's it is most likely that the size of this Dalton
population resulted from a small number of founders (perhaps single digit) and from a large number of children in each generation. Between 1700 and 1880 there were at least seven/eight generations; childbearing often occurred before age 25; and families frequently had from four to eight children.

Innovative Given Names
After 180 years, traditional English or Scottish Irish names in Virginia were rapidly disappearing from the choices parents had for naming their children. Some given names were corruptions of older given names or nicknames, but others were entirely creative. This departure from John, James, Mary or Elizabeth makes it much easier to find that unusual name or spelling in other sets of data or in other states thus providing a unique opportunity to find and verify a family link.

Virginia Twins
Are twins commonly found in your ancestral line? While extracting Daltons from the 1880 Census it became apparent that the occurence of twins may be more prevalent among the Daltons of Virginia than in other states. As we work through the data state by state we will note where this phenomenon occurs. (Thus far the NY 1880 Census shows a few sets of twins among Irish parents).

Census data does not take into account those situations where one or both twins died at birth or at an early age. This was a common occurence. Birth or baptismal data offers a more accurate reading and therefore the count could be higher than indicated. (The 1850 Census data in the file did not yield any information on twins). Printed below are four sets of twins from the 1880 Census. Someone may recognize a genetic link between the sets or to his/her line.

1880 Census of Virginia

Pine Creek
Ellis and Elbert Dalton, 6 mos. old sons of Alexander and Frances Dalton
Pittsylvania County

Smyth County
Calidonia and Lenora Dalton, age 6, daus of Henry C. and Tobitha Dalton

Recent research findings on twinning has added a new dimension to the phenomenon. Socio-cultural factors are now believed to play an important role. Fertility drugs will also upset the traditional means of genetic identification in the future and present another challenge to the genealogist.
