Tyrell married Elizabeth Goring at Long Stanton in 1661 and she bore him five sons. They were Thomas who died as a baby 1662, Tyrell 1669, Percy 1671, John 1672 and William 1774, and one daughter, Elizabeth 1666..
Tyrell was a Justice of the Peace in Fulbourn for several years and died in 1682 when he was still quite young. He has a magnificent tomb in the south transcept of the church. His wife has a simple slab set in the floor beneath. The inscription on Tyrell's tomb is very interesting. He had assumed that this branch of the Daltons had probably come down from Yorkshire before the start of the parish records. This tomb confirms this. It says in Latin, "At the foot of this marble lies Tyrell Dalton, esquire, sprung from the ancient family of Dalton in Yorkshire". So our hypothesis was correct.
