Dalton Hall was founded by the Quakers in 1876, and was named after John Dalton a scientist and Quaker in the city. It was established as accommodation for students from a Quaker background attending Owens College, the forerunner of The University of Manchester. At the time, Owens College was one of only two institutions in the country to admit dissenters. The hall moved to the building currently used as Dalton-Ellis's Main Hall in 1881. The building, designed by G T Redmayne, was the first purpose-built hall of residence in England. In 1892 the large Victorian house now known as Eaglesfield was bought to increase the hall's capacity. (Source: University of Manchester website, 2011)
