A sizar corresponded to a servitor at Oxford. The sizar paid nothing for food and tuition, and very little for lodging. They formerly waited on the table at meals; but this is done away with. They were probably so called from being thus employed in distributing the size, or provisions.) at St. John’s College, Cambridge and the Rector of Wolverstone before he vanished from England and turned up in New Hampshire, in 1636 as so many Puritans were forced to do. Timothy’s will was proved 8 Apr 1662 in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Timothy Dalton was born in England and graduated at Cambridge in 1613. He came to New England about the year 1637, and was made freeman on 7 Sep 1637 in Dedham, Mass.

Hampton records dated 7 Jun 1639 indicate he was a 'teacher' of the church.

Timothy Dalton lived with his wife, Ruth, in their house lot on the southerly side of the Hampton meeting-house green, only a few rods from the meeting-house. The lot was eventually purchased by the town and was held and occupied as a parsonage until 1871.

A farm lying in the south part of town, near Salisbury, was granted to Mr. Dalton's son, Timothy Dalton, Jr.
