Notes for The Ven Dr William DEALTRY
He was the younger son of an old Yorkshire family, from whom he inherited at his father's death a small landed property. He entered St Catharine Hall, Cambridge, when quite young, and soon migrated to Trinity College. He was second wrangler and second Smith's prizeman in 1796, and a fellow of Trinity from 1798 until his marriage in 1814. He proceeded M.A. in 1799, B.D. in 1812, and D.D. in 1829.

He held for some years the living of Walton, Hertfordshire. In 1802 he was moderator in the examinations of the university. On the foundation of the East India College in Hertfordshire (Haileybury) he was appointed professor of mathematics.

In 1810 he published The Principles of Fluxions,’ a manual for students, and was about the same time elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1813, on the death of the Rev. John Venn, Dealtry was made rector of Clapham. Belonging to the evangelical party in the Church of England, he took part in the controversy which arose on the formation in 1810–12 of the British and Foreign Bible Society, which he supported.

On 25 February 1830 he received a prebendal stall at Winchester Cathedral, and was made chancellor of the diocese; in 1845 he was appointed archdeacon of Surrey. He died at Brighton on 15 October 1847.
