Nalton, James an English divine, flourished about the middle of the 17th century. He was expelled from the English Church and compelled to flee to Holland in 1622, on pretence of being implicated in what was called Love's Plot, but really because of his non-conformity. He published occasional sermons- 1646, 1661, 1664 and is recommended by Baxter for his piety as well as learning. He died in the year 1662. Twenty of his sermons were published after his death (in 1677) by Matthew Poole (q.v.), who commended them highly. See Genesis Biog. Diet. s.v.; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v.
