- These are the primary facts of life and death of the scribe of an old volume now in the possession of the state of New Hampshire, and deposited in the custody of the secretary of the state. From 1775, when the provincial records were removed from Portsmouth for greater safety from the enemy by sea, until 1899 it rested in "ye antient toune" of Exeter, where it was considered as a part of the court records of the province of Ne Hampshire, and was .... etc.
- .... For the last nineteen years of his life, beginning at the early age of thirty-three, he seems to have done little else than hold public office. He apparently inherited this tendency from his father, with the old homestead, for we read in the Massachusetts Bay colonial records, May 14, 1645, "Philemon Dalton hath authority to see people marry at Hampton," and again, June 18, 1645, "Philemon Dalton, at ye request of ye towne of Hampton, is authorized & appointed by this Courte to marrye there such as are dewly published acording to lawe."
- .... etc.
- Samuell Dalton is appointed to dolemnize marriage there betweene persons published according to lawe." Misfortune, as well, attended his earliest appearance in a legislative body, for, on the same day, May 7, 1662, "Mr. Sam Dalton, deputy for Hampton, having an aged father, since his coming to this Court, daingerously, if not mortally wounded, by the fall of a tree, desiring ye favor of this Court, is dismissed his attendance at this session." His father died from his injury June 4, following.
- .... etc.
- .... He remained in the council until his death, Aug. 22, 1681, and Sept. 6, following, Anthony Nutter, of Dover, was nominated to the king for appointment in his stead.
- Had Squire Dalton been spared to a green old age, for he was only fifty-two, doubtless greater honors would have fallen to him, and perhaps, furthur light would have been thrown on the history and genealogy of the early settlers of old Norfolk County.

- The Dearborns of Hampton, N.H.: Descendants of Godfrey Dearborn of Exeter ... By Joseph Dow
- GODFREY DEARBORN, the progenitor of all the early families in this vicinity bearing this name, is said to have been born in Exeter, in the county of Devoon, in England. After his emigration to America, he settled at Exeter, N. H., and was one of the thirty-five men, that signed the Combination for the government of that place, in 1639. Between 1648 and 1650, removed to Hampton, and settled where John Dearborn, one of his descendants of the eighth generation lived, and where his widow remained til her death in 1892. Godfrey Dearborn had a wife living in the early part of 1651, as appears from the Town Records. The time of her death is not know; but in 1662 he was a widower; and in the latter part of that year he married again. He died Feb. 4, 1686.
- I. GODFREY DEARBORN married, first, —— , in England; second, Nov. 25, 1662, Dorothy, widow of Philemon Dalton (2). The date of her death is not known. By his first marriage, he had children:

When Philemon and his young son Samuel arrived on the Increase in 1635 they first settled in Essex county MA. Soon thereafter (I do not when or why) Philemon moved the family to Hampton MH and the Dalton family remained there until Timothy moved back to MA.
