This file of Daltons in Essex contains Marriages, Births, Burials and extractions from the 1881 Census of the UK. There are approximately 350 surname entries. According to the 1881 Census, a large number of Essex born Daltons migrated to other shires/counties. The resulting number of migrants almost equaled the Essex population of Daltons in 1881.
