The file of New Hampshire Daltons is quite extensive and contains about 800 surnames. In the absence of Birth and Marriage data, your editor has extracted genealogies from the histories of several NH towns and linked them together wherever possible. This data includes births, marriages, deaths, places of residence and other pertinent information of use to the researcher. It covers a period of 300 years - from the mid 1600's to the mid 1900's.

Originally the data was assembled by your editor as background material for a series of articles on the Hampton, NH Daltons that were published in the Dalton Genealogical Society Journals and on the DGS Home page. Our appreciation is extended to DGS member Bernard W. Dodd of Concord, NH for locating and sending copies of the histories. We are also grateful to Robert Dalton of Malagia, CA and Judy Olson for their contributions.

Because of the limited availability of primary source material for this file, please be sure to verify the data. The data is easily searchable using the section links, the "Find on this page..." button or the Edit/Find function of your browser.

Editor's note.   The popular conception has been that Samuel Dalton and Michael Dalton, born in Londonderry were the sons of a John Dalton from Ireland.  Your editor offers another opinion. The links with the Newburyport and Hampton, NH Daltons may be more than coincidence. In the Hampton, NH section above, #32, there is a John Dalton, b. Mar 2 1723 and no other information available in the Hampton History.  Did he move to Londonderry? Was Capt. Michael Dalton, warden at St. Paul's the uncle of Michael S. Dalton?  It might be worth concentrating research efforts on this possibilty. If proven, then Philemon Dalton's son Samuel was the progenitor of the entire NH line of Daltons.

In addition to the above, the following Dalton entries were also noted in the History of Sanbornton, NH.
