Norfolk County  Notes from Linda Blake, US

Memorial Slabs

I was visiting the church in Swaffham, Norfolk the other day and found two memorial slabs directly in front of the altar with Dalton names. Both slabs had identical shields on the upper portion, a wyvern with open wings at the top and below that a circle of eight cross crosslets surrounding a lion rampant. (Lucy tells me this is the Lancashire branch and your (American secertary) line as well. Extracted by Linda Blake

The first slab had:

Francis Dalton, Gent, who departed this life  12 October 1767 In the 63 year of his Age

The second slab had:

In memory of Robert, Son of Francis Dalton, Gent. and Elizabeth, his wife who died March 12, 1760 Age 20 years.

Also of Francis Dalton of West Bilney and Ann his wife who died an infant 7 Sept 1763.

Notes from the Norfolk Records Society, contributed by Lucy J. Slater.

Vol. XVIII, BISHOP REDMAN'S  VISITATION of 1597.

P. 60, Court of 4th Nov 1597 held at Swaffham. John Dalton and John Taylor, churchwardens of Clenchwarton, in the Deanery of Lynn Marshland made a plea for a new psalter and a table of the ten commandments. Granted.

P. 94, Ann of Wimbotsham, widow of Jasper Blage, deceased, (connected to Daltons), hath not received communion these xij monthes. Warned.

P. 108, Elizabeth Turnor and William Dalton of Shelfhanger accused of incontinency. Non comp. ideo excomm. (They did not repent so were excommunicated).

Daltons of East Anglia

Twenty years ago, in 1978, a DGS member in England submitted  a pedigree of his prominent family which dates back to Thomas Dalton (1609-1673) in Bury St. Edmundís, Suffolk. This Thomas  became Canon of Durham. His grandson, Thomas Dalton, is buried in Norwich Cathedral (1727) and the memorial tablet contains the coat of arms of this branch of the Dalton family. It has some similarities to the coat of arms of the Lancashire branch of Daltons (see home page) but also differences. This was printed in DGS Journal, Vol. 8, 1978.

The coat of arms for John Dalton of Bury is described in Corderís Dictionary of Suffolk Arms as follows:                              

A demi wivern and Arms azure. Azure

a lion rampant guardant and/or Azure

crustilly ( and) a lion rampant guardant

argent, a chief barry wavy of four

 argent and sable.

The similarities between the many Dalton coats of arms suggest that there might be common ancestry, but of course, they provide no evidence for proving the same.

For those who may have their Dalton roots in East Anglia, we have selected out the spousesí surnames  in this extensive pedigree to compare with your pedigree. The chart also identifies those who were at Cambridge and they were reported  in Vol. 7 of the DGS Journal, 1977.

The associated surnames are: Long, Isham, Feakes, King, Harmer, Haywood, Ruffell, Farmington, Weatherby, Spurgeon, Heart, Squires, Alexander, Browne, Henderson, Tew,

Firmin, Greenhow, Brooke, Watkins, Barker, Weybridge, Debenham, Pattisson, Kitching,

Anderson, Archer, Starrock, Miller, Weir, Barrie, Jeffrey. These names are arranged chronologically rather than alphabetically beginning in the late 1600ís and ending in the 1940ís.

Readers who could be connected to this branch of Daltons in East Anglia may obtain more information from our English Secretary, Pamela Lynam whose address is located on the

Entitlements Page of the Dalton Genealogical Society.

An entry from Lesley Taylor to Jack Richards.

Lesley Taylor has this Dalton in his family tree.  Kate Hawes(1874-1956, born at Welney) married Herbert Dalton and had two children Maud, born 19/3/1902, died July 1968, married Oswald Lavender and  had 2 children.   Alfred Dalton (1903 - April 1942) married Dorina C Brown.
