Vol 13, Part II
Daltons in Wales, the Descendants of James Dalton and Joyce Vaughan
by Michael Neale Dalton  p.29
  This is the third article about Daltons in Wales.  It discusses the descendants of James Dalton, the fifth son of Walter of Kidwelly and gives extensive charts of his family descendants over five generations.

Volume 14, Part I
The Junior Dalton Line, the Missing Link, by R. N. D. Hamilton  p.7
Chapter I.
  This paper discusses the tradition that the Daltons of Witney, the so-called junior Dalton line, are descended from Roger Dalton of Thurnham.  The author gives a transcription of the will of Roger, dated 1588, which makes no mention of a son called Walter.  The possibility that the Witney Daltons are descended from the Yorkshire Dalton line is then discussed and suggestions made for further lines of research, to clarify the connections between the Yorkshire Daltons, the three Walter Daltons at Witney and James Dalton of Pembrey.

In 1700, Pembrey Parish was situated in the Commote of Kidwelly, and was divided into three hamlets; Llan (Pembrey village), Penrhyn and Llandyry. (In modern days, Pembrey, Burry Port, Pwll and Trimsaran are in Pembrey Parish).  Pembrey village amounted to about twenty houses.  James Dalton 1650, leased Caldicote Farm and Charles Dalton 1639, leased a mansion in Penybedd.

From the book: "Pembrey and Burry Port" by John A. Nicholson.
"Here lies the body of James Dalton of Caldicote Farm of this parish, Gent, who departed this life on the 15th of May, Anno Domini, 1721, age 71 years, son of Walter Dalton of the parish of Witney, in the County of Oxford". This is an epitaph in the church of St. Illtyd, Pembrey churchyard.

From the book: "Historic Carmarthenshire Homes and their Families" by Major Francis Jones."
"The Dalton's of Pennybedd, Pembrey".  This was a superior farmstead, home of yeomen and gentry.  It formed part of the Cwrt Penbre estate in the days of the Vaughans who owned it prior to 1642, and then it passed to the Lords Ashburnhams.  It was held on lease by the Daltons who acted as agents to the Cwrt estate. "Pen y bedd is the mansion of Charles Dalton, gent".

Note:  John Dalton, 1677, lived on a farm in St. Clears, Carmarthenshire.  This farm was called "Clog-y-fran", and is on a scamp above the river Fenni, 2 1/2 miles west of St. Clears.  John Dalton held a lease on the property, and was a receiver for the Duchy of Lancaster.

Extract from the 29th year transactions of Calvinsitic Methodist Historical Society Book.
"Here lieth the body of John Dalton of Clog-y-fran, gent, who departed this life, the 22nd day of Feb 1724 in the 47 year of his age, and likewise the body of his wife, Mary, who died 25th Aug 1775".

From the book:  The Ashburnhams and their Pembrey Estate"
Charles Dalton, who lived at Penybedd, appears to have started as agent from about 1656 for the Pembrey Vaughans, but after the marriage of Bridget Vaughan to John Ashburnham in 1677, he became agent for the Ashburnhams.  He was followed by his two sons, John and James, who remained as agents until at least 1724.  The brothers lived at Caldicott Farm which is referred to as early as 1282. Caldicott was also called Cornel Mawr or Tywyn Point, which is the western end of Cefn Sida Sands".
