By 1881, there were only 2 Dalton families consisting of 6 members remaining in Shropshire.
This may have been partly the result of redistricting that occurred in July 1837. Shropshire born Daltons were enumerated in several adjoining counties or shires some of which included parts of the original Shropshire. Including their family members, they numbered 83 in 1881. All are listed in this file of 155 surnames. Burials were contributed by Michael Cayley, DGS Archivist. Contributions of birth, marriage or burial records are welcome. It is the onus of the user to verify the data.
