As a newby to the village (11 years) I couldn`t imagine living anywhere else now. So much history and interesting stories of times gone by. Welcome to our new website & enjoy reading about our village and home.

I couldn’t agree more with Deborah Brown comments on “Dalton Le Dale history society” and the surrounding area, she put it all into a nut shell, also if we all work together with the history and the surrounding, country side the wild life would gain from it and be in plenty with the help of the sowing of wild flowers seeds in Dean Clofe. Yours Thomas Harper Naylor

Well Done to Everyone

Well done to everyone involved in creating and keeping this Website alive. Too much local history is lost to time in this modern world. I was only 2 years old when my family left Dalton-le-Dale in 1958 for Australia, so my knowledge of the village, and my family`s life there is scant. To see the family name in the 1891 census and to see it mentioned with the Burnside Works in your "walk" was indeed a pleasing note in the history of Dalton-le-Dale. Again, well done everyone, and keep up the good work. Cheers!

Apologies to all. For some reason my surname, Dickeson, was ommitted from my guestbook entry. Cheers and greetings from Australia

Hello John, I hope you enjoyed reading about "Walking the Bounds", We are trying to find out more info regarding your Uncle Hugh. We can confirm that the house Ashville still exists with residents Mr and Mrs G Smailes. You can see an overhead on google map. At the end of the entry road into the Overdene Estate, there is a private road which leads to 2 bungalows, Ashville is the first one with a large green house in the garden.If we find any info we will let you know. Meanwhile thankyou for visiting our site. Best Wishes Gerald Gustard DLD History Society

I came across a reference to a relative of mine in a section of your website "Walking the Bounds July 27th 2013." The piece of interest referred to my Great Uncle Hugh Kirton a Builder in Seaham Harbour. Uncle Hugh came to live with us in his latter years but it is only recently doing family research that I realised how many houses he built in the area as well as in Sunderland. I am particularly interested in the Overdene area as Hugh`s wife my Great Aunt Eva died at Ashville Overdene Dalton Le Dale in 1947. It would be of interest to me to know if this house still exists and if any of your members have any info about Hugh. Regards John Kirton

Hi, My Father aged 92, has a lot of "memories" about Dalton-Le-Dale which we are very happy to pass on to your Historical Society. Dad was born in Cold Hesledon, and was a choir boy at Dalton-le-Dale Church from approximately 1936-1941. He clearly remembers names such as Ivan Way, George Rutter, Bill Short,and Billy Williams. In addition to Billy Proud, Bobby Proud, and Arthur Mullen. Jenny Wilson - a resident and Frankie Thubrun both ived in Daton-le-

Hello Jane, Thankyou for visiting our guest book for Dalton le Dale. We would love to read about your fathers memories of his time spent in the village. We still have residents from your dads era, including Eric Proud and Doreen Proud ( Bills wife). Many have sadly passed including last year Ivan Way ( the son ). His father wrote the book Our Village which is all about DLD. Please pass on our best wishes to your father, we look forward to any memories he wishes to share. ( Does he have the same surname ?) Best Wishes Gerald Gustard Chairman DLDHistory Society

Thank you for your message, although I`m afraid your question isn`t relevant to the Dalton-le-Dale History Society. I would suggest that you conduct a search of the internet for the items you are looking for. Many thanks, History Society Committee Member

Help track down a book written in the 60’s about the History of Dalton le Dale

Hi, my grandmother grew up in Dalton Le Dale, she was born in 1899 and her family lived at Glebe Farm. I remember her showing me a small book written by a neighbour in which she and her family were mentioned. I think it must have been destroyed when my parents house was flooded. Does anybody know of this book, is it still available or in your possession? My families name was Anderson, like many families at the time she had several brothers and sisters who remained in the locality, my Grandmother made her home in Thirsk. Many thanks, Linda

Hi Linda, My mother was Ethel Anderson. Her father was Robert (Bob) Anderson who I imagine would have been your Grandmother`s brother. I assume her name was Hannah. The book you are looking for is called `Our Village` written by Ivan Way. My mother did have a copy of the book which mentions my Grandfather and his brother Bill. The chapter in the book is called `Bill and Bob` Hope this helps Ian.

Hi there, I believe that I have just discovered that a number of my ancestors came from your village. My Google search for Dalton le Dale led me to your site. The family name was `Forster` and they were living c1700. If I can give more evidence for my connection, I will certainly be back! Best wishes, Steve

Would love to know more about where the LUKES family might have lived in 1874. They were in Dalton-le-Dale for only a few years at most, as their son Thomas was born in New Seaham in 1871 and their daughter Keturah was born in New Tunstall in 1878. In between those two, daughter Alice was born in Dalton-le-Dale in 1874! Her grave is at findagrave 22658154 with more details about parents and siblings. Thanks for any suggestions or help!

Please i need your urgent response

Good day to you, My name is Barrister Gary E. Hamilton, a United State lawyer. I have previously sent you a message regarding a transaction worth ($20,000,000.00 USD (Twenty Million USD Dollars) left by my late client before his tragic death. I am contacting you once again because after going through your profile, I strongly believe that you will be in a better position to execute this business transaction with me. Please if you are interested, I wish to point out that after the transaction I want 10% of this money to be donated among charity organizations while the remaining 90% will be shared equal by the both of us. This transaction is 100% risk free; please respond to me as soon as possible for more detailed information. Here is my email: eric@hamiltonfirm.us Yours Faithfully, Barrister Gary E. Hamilton
