Daltons in India and South Wales
« on: 30 May, 2012, 07:08 »
My greatgrand father Thomas Lawrence Dalton was born in 1874? Llandaff Cardiff to Thomas Masters Dalton and Emily Dalton nee Mansford.  He was the youngest of 6 children.  He went to India and worked as a coffee planter in Southern India in the Coorg region.  He led a very colourful life having at least 9 children, 4 illegitimate children and 5 with his lawful wife Hilda Caroline Pickering who he married in Coimbatore Coorg in 1904.  Throughout his life he travelled around the world after joining the Lumsden Horse regiment in Calcutta to fight in the Boer War in 1899.  I have recently found his death in 1950 at Farnham Surrey aged 79.  Anyone who has any further information please let me know.
