Hi

My best friend, Tim Dainton, son of Ron Dainton, is from Taunton, Somerset. Tim also has a brother, Terry Dainton.

Tim has expressed an interest in tracing his ancestry.

Tim's paternal grandfather was based at Jellabad barracks in Taunton and he thinks his grandmother was from Dorset, so perhaps his Grandfather was too.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

regards,

RouX

Was Tim's paternal grandfather by any chance a George DAINTON, who married a Jane DONALDSON? As I believe this couple were married in Taunton and George definately served in the army.

Hello!

I'm helping Tim with this. He says his Grandfather was called -

Henry James Dainton
Born: 1905
Jellabad, Taunton, Somerset
Died: Aug 1974
Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton, Somerset, England

Henry's father was James Dainton from Bathwick who served at Jellabad Barracks.

The surname is not that common, so I suspect we will find George was a sibling, or cousin.

Related to Tim (a.k.a. Timothy J. Dainton)? Not as far as I can find yet. If I was it would have to be around 1700s as his branch of the Dainton origins are in the Bradford-on-Avon area, whereas mine are from Beckington. There is a connection between these two "centres of Dainton" population, which form 99% of Daintons World Wide.

As far as I can figure out there are only up to 1,000 Daintons alive in the World today - not a common name.
