Like many I had assumed Dalton Magna had been in existence for the same period as Dalton Parva. However Dalton Magna is not mentioned as a separate hamlet until 1466.
In this period the area at the time was part of the royal hunting forest, due to the increase in demand for land at the time the area was cleared , farm buildings appeared and Dalton Magna was born.
Low Farm pictured left was once the home of William Eyre and family in the latter half of the 19th century
The land was held in high esteem at the time and rightly so, and some of you may be surprised to learn that Queen Elizabeth the 1st owned estates in Dalton Magna and Parva.
On the 26th November in the year of Eliz. I. 1583 the Foljambe family of Osberton, Nottinghamshire receipt for £31 11s 11½d, for half a year's chief rents, due to the Queen from estates at Dalton Magna and Dalton Parva.
