Dalton

Si bien no es de origen irlandés, el apellido DALTON figura en el país desde la invasión anglo-normanda del Siglo XII. De acuerdo con la tradición familiar, el primero que vino desde Inglaterra fue Walter Dalton, que había huído de Francia por incurrir en la desgracia de su rey por casarse secretamente con una de sus hijas. Pronto los de este apellido se hicieron poderosos, por haber adquirido tierras en tiempos de Enrique II de Inglaterra, situadas en Co.Meath, en las que fundaron castillos y casas religiosas. Se extendieron después a Co.Tipperary y Co.Cork, pero al hacerse completamente irlandeses fueron arruinados por los seguidores de Cromwell y los orangistas.En los registros de entradas de pasajeros al puerto de Buenos Aires figuran, entre 1825 y 1880, 27 personas de este apellido.

The name Dalton in Ireland is of Norman origin. It was brought to the country in the thirteenth century as d'Alton. The name is most prevalent in Counties Meath and Westmeath where the majority of descendants can still be found.

Origen: Irlandés. Ireland already had an established system of hereditary surnames when the Strongbownians arrived. Often the two traditions blended together quite well due to some of their basic similarities, but the incoming Anglo-Norman system brought in some forms that were uncommon amongst the Irish. One of these Anglo-Norman anomalies was the prevalence of local surnames, such as Dalton. Local names were taken from the names of a place or a geographical feature where the person lived, held land, or was born. Originally, the place names were prefixed by de, which means from in French. This type of prefix was eventually either made a part of the surname if the place name began with a vowel or was eliminated entirely. The local surnames of these Strongbownian invaders referred to places in Normandy, or more typically England, but eventually for those Anglo- Normans that remained in Ireland, the nicknames referred to places or geographical features of the island: they became true local names. The Dalton family appears to have originally lived in one of the various places called Alton in England. The name usually means old farmstead or farmstead at the source of a river. The surname Dalton belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees. The modern form of the surname is D'Alton derived from the original Gaelic form of the surname de Dalatún. First found in Lancashire where they had been granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
