Rev Timothy DALTON (1578 – 1662) Timothy Dalton was born about 1578 at Ipswich, England. He married Ruth LEET on 13 June 1615 at Gislingham, Suffolk, England.  Timothy founded a Church called the Church of Jesus Christ in Hampton, New Hampshire. Timothy had been a sizar  (One of a body of students in the universities of Cambridge, who, having passed a certain examination, are exempted from paying college fees and charges. 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.

Ruth Leet was born in England. Her parents were Robert LEET and Alice GRUNDY, Ruth died in 1665 in Hampton, New Hampshire. Ruth’s will was proved 8 Dec 1665.

Timothy and Ruth had no children of their own.
