The Junior Dalton Line, the Missing Link, by R. N. D. Hamilton  p.21
Chapter IV 
  The missing link is that between Walter Dalton I of Oxfordshire and the Daltons of Lancashire or Yorkshire.  Here Mr. Hamilton tries to trace back from Walter and discusses the will of a William Dalton of Witney who died in 1563 and had a son "Water".  His widow Jone left her estate to her son Walter.  Another son, Thomas had died or moved away.  There are several documents surviving which mention a William Dalton of Witney as a chantry priest, as the owner of land, and as a mercer.  So there may have been three men alive at the same time, in the same village, with the same name.  Walter Dalton the first was a mercer, who became prominent in the affairs of Witney.  His will is given at length, together with his inventory dated 1628.
American Yorkshire Daltons, A Missing Million by Pamela Richards  p.45
  This short paper outlines the descendants of Samuel Dalton born 1692, emigrated to America and lived to be 110.  He owned a lot of land in Virginia and was connected by marriage with several well known American families.  His grand niece Catherine Bird wrote to her nephew William Yancey that they may have been connected to a Lord Dalton of Yorkshire who had died about 1771 leaving 1,000,000 unclaimed.

The Junior Dalton Line, the Missing Link, by R. N. D. Hamilton  p.21
  This article continues the discussion about the three Walter Daltons of Whitney, with a description of the will of Walter Dalton the second and the few facts we have about Walter Dalton the third.  The entries in an old family bible give some very different facts about the three Walters when compared with parish records and wills.  An attempt is made to reconcile these differences.  But despite careful searching by the author, no final conclusions are reached.  Many possible lines are suggested for further research into the family history of the three Walters of Whitney.
