According to the 1881 Census, Northamptonshire Daltons were a mere 40 in number with out-migration of Northants born Daltons exceeding the in-migration of Daltons born in other counties/shires. This dwindling population of Daltons accounts for the small number of births, marriages and burials of record. Our appreciation is extended to DGS Archivist, Michael Cayley, for Burial Records.
