This second part of the series on Coats of Arms covers Daltons in Yorkshire. DGS Historian, Dr. Lucy J. Slater has transcribed them from the abbreviated Norman French into English. Both languages are included. Our appreciation is extended to Lucy

(1) Dalton (Dalton Haye, co. York and London)

followed by a colour.
Crest - a dragon's head vert. / betw. two wings or. / pellettee.
Crest:- A dragon's head in green / between two wings in gold / resting on a cushion (which is usually black if no other colour is given.)
This seems to be the main Dalton shield with the diffences for a younger son in the pose of the lion, reguardant, and the red star on its breast.
(2) Dalton (co. York)
Az. / a lion ramp guard. ar. / within a bordure / engr. or.

A silver shield / with an azure blue cross / and between the arms of the cross, four green parrots.

A red shield, with a St. Andrew’s cross, cut off so that it does not touch the sides of the shield, in Silver.

Gules, semee , Cross crosslets, or, a lion rampant argent.
A red shield, covered, with small crosses with bars on each arm, in gold, with a lion standing on its hind legs, in silver.
As this is a woman’s shield, it would probably be on a diamond shaped shield.

Azure, semee, of crosses, crosslet, fitchee, or, a lion rampant, argent.
An azure blue shield, covered, with little crosses, with bars on each arm, the ends of the arms being pointed, in gold, and having a lion standing on its hind legs, in silver.

A dragon’s head, in green, between two open wings, in gold, wearing round its neck, a collar, as a symbol of partition, in silver.

As can be seen some of the Coats of Arms were not identified with a particular branch of the Dalton family. Those families who are identified in No. 6, 7, and 8 above have all been the subject of research reports that have appeared in the Dalton Genealogical Society Journals.

This is the second in a series of extractions made by DGS Archivist, Michael Cayley from the records of the Catholic Record Society in London.
