James Dalton, Trafalgar veteran


Active member
I'm trying to find out about a James Dalton, who was at Trafalgar on HMS Mars. He was 12 years old at the time, and we know he was from Manchester. According to the IGI there are 2 alternative James', one christened 13JAN1793 (in Manchester), parents Thomas and Martha, and the other christened 25DEC1792, parents James and Hannah. Thomas and Martha were married in 1790, James and Hannah in 1789, both in Manchester. The elder James may have been christened 18DEC1768 in Oldham, parents James and Ann.

I can't find any info on the IGI or Lancs OPC or ancestry regarding Thomas or James' siblings, or Thomas' parents.

Does anyone have any clues where else I could look?
