Hetty Trevail, the one surviving daughter of Joseph Trevail and Eliza Roach, his second wife, married George Dalton, in Plymouth, in 1893. This was not George's first marriage. George, purportedly from Fareham, Hampshire, had previously married Sarah Jane Rogers, in Plymouth, in 1869, with whom he had a son, William John Dalton in 1870. Sarah Jane died, aged 40, in 1892.

George and Hetty had two sons:
  1. Silvanus Henry Dalton born 1894 (died 1923, aged 29, in Totnes)
  2. Victor George Trevail Dalton born 30 Aug 1902, bap. 11 Nov 1903 at the Anglican Church of Emmanuel
Again, although obviously no proof, it would be hard to imagine that there was no familial link with the use of that unusual given name of Silvanus

In 1911, George Dalton (62) Farmer, Hetty (49), Silvanus (16) Farmer's son working on farm and Victor Dalton (8) at School, were living and working at Stone Farm, Ugborough, Ivybridge, Devon. 

It would appear George Dalton died, aged 90, in 1938, in Gosport, Hampshire.

Hetty Dalton, widow, in 1939, was living with her son, Victor, Dairyman Grocer And General Shop Keeper at 2 Lipson Avenue, Plymouth.

Hetty Dalton of 2 Lipson Avenue, Plymouth, widow, died on 15 Jan 1945 at The City Hospital Plymouth - originally opened in 1858 as the Plymouth Workhouse. She left £3224 12s 1d (£3,224 in 1945 is worth £142,736 today) to John Archibald Dave, commercial traveller. [As yet no idea who he was.]
