Three years later Mr. Maltby went into the drug 
business for himself. In May, 1852, he married 
Elizabeth BroughtOn Maguire. They had two 
hildren, Edward Parks, and Mary Louise, Maltby, - 
Shortly after the above children were born the war 
broke out and Mr. Maltby disposed of his drug 
business and went South where for some time he 
fjupplicLl General Grant's army with provisions. Mr. 
Maltby established an oyster business in • Norfolk, 
Virginia, and was the first to ship opened oysters in 
bulk to New York; for a long time averaging five 
hundred gallons a day. 

In 1864 Mr. Maltby lost his wife and for seven 
[years was a widower. In 1871 he married Ruth 
Atwater Bostwick, and to them were born Margaret 
Atwater, George Er^astus and Lucius Upson, Maltby. 

In 1878 Mr. Maltby and his family left Virginia 
and went to New York to live, where the northern 
branch of the oyster business was supervised by him. 
Mrs. Maltby died in May, 1898, and soon after Mr. 
Maltby gave up active business and now divides his 
time between his older daughter, Mrs. Frederick S. 
Smith of Chester, Connecticut, and his younger 
daughter. Mrs. William M. Bernard of New York

The Third Annual Report 

The end of January^ nineteen hundred and nine, 
marks the completion of the third year of life for the 
Maltby Association, and as we look back upon our 
beginning with its doubts and fears, its struggles and 
trials, then glance at our present membership roil, 
should we not all feel just a bit pleased with the 
result of our labors? 

In view of the increased membership it seems not 
unfitting that a few words should appear in Booklet 
Two which would give members, especially the new 
members, some slight idea of our history and our 
work; how we came to exist, and so on. 

In February, nineteen hundred and six, two or 
three of the Maltby cousins were brought to face 
with these questions — Who was going to care for the 
tombstones of the early ancestors? Who was going 
to preserve the family records? What was to become 
of the few old relics and Maltby homesteads? Were 
no photographs to be taken, that these might be pre- 
served to posterity? and many similar queries. The 
result of all this w^as that those few undertook to 
interest other cousins, and to form a Maltby Associa- 
tion — bound together through the tie of blood, to 
accomplish these several things.

seceetary's report 14 

There were twentv-seven orginal members— all 
joining during February and March of 1906. 

At the end of the year our number had grown to 
forty, and having practiced the strictest economy 
and contributed from private sources we fouiul we 
had $34.80 in the Treasury. Certainly not enough 
to warrant any expenditure, though there were the 
annual reports to be got out. It was through the 
kindne&s of our Treasurer, Mrs. Todd, that the&e 
were furni^^hed wnth no expense to the Association. 

The work of the second year is fully shown in 
J3ooklet No, 1. Me closed the year with 59 members 
and $66. 22 in the Treasury.. Again the question of 
getting out the reports was perplexing us and again 
were these furnished privately. This time by Mr. 
Jay Hayes Maltby, editor of the Forman Newe, of 
Forman, North Dakota. Booklet No. 1 received e.o 
much praise from the members that any words here 
would be superfluous. What these booklets did for 
the Association is lie^t shown by the large increa-^e 
in membership. We find ourselves at the clo-e of 
this third year with aboiTt one hundred members, and 
^74.77 in the Treasury. 

Our membership roll includes 108 names, but 
there are seven members in the list who have not as 
yet paid their dues for 1908. Some of these, we 
think, have sim^jly neglected to pay, and some very 
likely may wish to resign. 

We do not wish to urge members to remain in the 
Association, and yet we dislike to lose any of the 
cousins. It would be a great convenience if members 
wishing to resign would formally notify the secretary

to this effect, and thus simplify making out the 

There are al&o eight members who joined the Asso- 
ciation in January, and there has not been time as yet 
to hear from them since they were notified as to their 
due?. One member paid this year's dues last year,' 
and two members do not pay, haying-furnished work 
gratis, which otherwise would have cost the Associa- 
tion in the neighborhood of fifty dollars. The 
officers felt that the least return was to extend hon- 
orary membership to them.

1 8 seceetary's report 

Death has taken several of our kindred from us, 
and the loss is indeed great, not only to those closely 
related, but to those who, through letters, had grown 
to feel a strong personal friendship as well as the 
blood tie. 

Booklet No. 2 we owe to Mr. Jay Hayes Maltby, 
who has spared neither time nor money to make it 
attractive and interesting. The expense of such a 
booklet is large and with the hope that, he might 
cover the actual expense of printing and so forth, we 
have asked fifty cents a copy for them. The booklets 
will be the same price to non-members as to the 
meudjers of the Association. 

It is the hope of the officer.s that the day may come 
when the Association is entirely self-supp )rting, but 
first we shall have to increase our membership. 
Concerning this, we should like to make an aj)i)cal 
to the members: Are you interested enough in the 
Association to try and ])ring some relative into it? 
It sounds very like the proposition of one's Sunday 
school days, yet, what a help if each member could 
interest only one person. Will you not try to help 
us to this extent? 

In gathering material for the Booklet, we have 
endeavored to procure some photographs which would 
interest all the descendants. 

The views of Maltby, England, and the interesting 
sketch of a Day at Maltby, by Miss Martha J. Maltby, 
as well as the reproduction of the Maltby coat-of- 
arms should interest any of the Maltby name or 

We frequently receive letters asking "Is 

a member of our branch of the family, and if so, h(nv 

secretary's report 19 

It is rather a delicate matter to touch upon, but some 
of the Maltbys have deservedly, made for themselves 
considerable reputation, and the "lay brothers" who 
are not so fortunate are justly proud of those who 
have pushed on in the World's Work. Endeavoring 
to secure photographs we find that there is at least 
one very strong Maltby trait, and that is modesty. 
However, it gives us great satisfaction to have 
secured a few photographs and some sketches, which 
we know will be interesting to members. We also 
wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation 
to those who for ' 'the sake of kinship were willing to 
help us in this way. 

In Booklet No. 2 we reproduced a photograph of 
Rev. Jonathan Maltby, who, so far as we know, was 
the first person to preserve the family records. His 
work was amplified by his neice Martha Church 
Maltby, daughter of Gen. Isaac Maltby (4), who mar- 
ried Harlow Swain Love. One could hardly state 
that Mrs. Love was the next person to take up this 
genealogical work, as Deacon Charles Foote (a de- 
scendant of Samuel [2] Maltby) who was one year 
Mrs. Love's senior in age, also labored long and 
painstakingly to gather the family records and pre- 
serve them. His efforts are included in " 'The Maltby- 
Morehouse Family." To all of these three we owe 
much of the early records of the Maltbys. They gave 
their best efforts to this work; examined records, 
. tombstones, wrote countless letters, met with very 
little help and considerable hindrance — this is the 
story of nearly all genealogists — but they did their 
best against many drawbacks, and their best was 
good. If there were mistakes, and there were and

always will be in this sort of work, can we not over- 
look these, and simply be g'-ateful for the vast amount 
of data left us. 

Tlie present genealogist finds the work progressing 
always, but far from rapidly. In a way this is una- 
voidable. Getting records together is a real trial for 
some people; others have not the time; others mean 
well, but do not know how to go about it— and lastly 
there are the "not interesteds." The latter can block 
a whole branch of the family from having their rec- 
ords appear in the genealogy, and the genealogist 
learns that it is useless to expect any reply from them. 

The most important work of the year in the Ameri- 
can branch was the placing, after years of hard search 
of Noah Maltby (5) of New York state. We owe the 
solving of this mystery to Miss Ethel Lord Scofield 
of West Haven, Conn., (a professional genealogist) 
who through some extremely clever work proved the 
ancestry of Noah Maltby (5) back to VA^illiam (1) the 
Emigrant. The ancestry of the Vershire, Vermont. 
Maltbys was also straightened out, with the aid of 
Miss Scofield, making on the whole, a very satisfac- 
tory progress with the genealogy. 

We also got trace of the descendants of tlie emigrant 
John Maltby, brother of William; and it gives us 
pleasure to have one of them, Mr, Maltby Grelston 
Leach, on our roll of members. John Maltby, the 
emigrant, is supposed to have been lost at sea about 
the year 1677. He married about 1671, Mary, 
daughter of Richard Bryan of Milford, Conn. They 
had two children, twins. John and Mary, born at 
New Haven. Conn.. June 1, 1678. 

rif=ii_ii— ir=ir=if=if=if=if=ir 






John Maltby Jr., married Susannah Clark. He 
was of Southampton, Long Island, and he died there 
June 27, 1706. (The Association endeavored to 
secure a photograph of this tombstone, but we fear it 
will be too late to be included in this report. ) John 
(2) had only one child who married; this was Mary (3) 
who became the wife of Judge Hugh Gelston. (Note 
here the Maltby name dies out in the line of John 
Maltby, the emigrant.) Hugh (4) Gelston was their 
tenth child, and his only child was the Rev. Maltby 
(5) Gelston, whose pictvire we have reproduced on 
another page. Rev. Maltby Gelston was born July 
17, 1766, and was ordained April 26, 1797. For 
forty-five years he was settled in the ministry at 
Sherman, Conn., where he died Decembei- 15, 1856, 
aged 90 years. 

We have been fortunate in securing photographs 
of the old homestead of Rev. Maltby Gelston, his 
desk, flintlock gun, and study chair. Mr. Maltby 
Gelston Leach is a great grandson of Rev. Maltby 

In the second annual report we mentioned that 
William (1) evidently had a daughter named Martha 
(2) and quoted Rev. Jonathan Maltby as our author- 
ity. Since the report was issued we have had some 
investigations made of the records at Branford, New 
Haven and Wallingford. The records are very 
puzzling and seemingly contradictory and at this 
date it is not possible to say whether William Maltby 
did, or did not have a daughter named Martha. 

Recently it was called to ovir attention that the 
tombstones of William Maltby, emigrant ancestor,

antl of his second wife, Abigail Bishop Maltby, do not 
now stand in the same i^Uice in the Branford ceme- 
tery as they did in 1894; and also Mrs. Mai tby's stone 
no longer stands beside her husband's, but at its foot. 
This is very much to be regretted, anil the Secretary 
wrote to the Pastor of the First Congregational |, 
Church to ascertain where to apply for iid'ornmtion 
on this subject. The Pastor sent the address of the 
Sexton, and a letter was written asking for estimates 
for replacing the stones side by side, and also asking 
if the stones could be restored to their original plac*' 
in the cemetery. This last, we fear, is hoptdess, but 
in the s^jring the stones can be placed in their former 
position, even if not on the original graves. 

It is with deepest regret that we have to record the 
deaths of three of our members: Mr. George W. 
Maltby, Mr. Silas Benjamin Maltbie and Deacon 
William Maltby. To the bereaved families the Asso- 
ciation wishes to tender its sincere sympathy. j 

The short biographical sketches following this 
rej)ort will give our members a little insight into the 
lives of these cousins, bring us all into closer touch, 
and strengthen the tie of kinship. 

A word as to the joroposed reunion in Branford on 
Sept. 1, 1910 — two hundred years from the date of 
death of William Maltby. 

We are so widely scattered that many of us can 
not be present at such a reunion, yet there are many 
descendants who could visit Branford on this date, 
and to these the following words are addressed: 

It is hoped that all the descendants of William 
Maltby residing within a short distance of New Haven 

seceetary's report 27 

will try to visit the grave of William Malt by on the 
date above given. It is too early to form definite 
arrangements for the reunion, but the following is a 
rough plan: 

The ten o'clock trolley car from the New Haven 
green would allow one to arrive in Branford shortly 
before eleven. The ride is a very pretty one, and the 
fare was, in 1906. fiftt'en cents; it may have been re- 
duced since. The town hall is open till noon, and 
here are to be found the early records, with the 
various deeds, etc., signed by William Maltby, town 
clerk. In back of the court house is the old academy 
building, and beyond that the bronze tablet marking 
the spot where stood the house of the Rev. Samuel 
Russell, in which Yale College was founded. The 
cemetery is hardly more than a city square from 
where the cars stop, and here lies the body of 
William Maltby, his wife Abigail, and several other 
early Maltbys. The Association will provide some 
suitable floral tribute for the graves of William 
Maltby, and Abigail, his wife, and descendants could 
bring flowers with which to decorate the graves. 

From the cemetery, the trolley could again be 
taken down to Indiau Neck (fare five cents, we be- 
lieve) where lunch could be procured. The Montowese 
House is a very good summer hotel, and here one 
could get a very desirable lunch; or basket lunches 
could be taken with one. as there are various pleasant 
places along the shore where picnic lunches could be 
eaten. After lunch there would be time for the 
descendants to meet socially, and also to hold some 
sort of exercises suitable for the occasion. 

28 secbetary's report 

The Association wonkl undertake to arrange all 
details for those who desired to go as one united j 
family; and to those who wished to go in small parties, ' 
would gladly furnish any informaticni required. 

Itumst be under.-.tood that the reunion is not simply | 
for members of the Maltby Association, but for • 
Maltby descendants and their families. ! 

The Secretary requests letters from members in i 
regard to this reunion with suggestions as to the day's j 
programme. The Secretary also desires that addi- ' 
tions and corrections be sent in, whenever mistakes i 
are found, either in the Booklet or the genealogy. j 

The Association intended to secure ijhotographs of i 
all their officers for Booklet No. 2, but owing to , 
illness it was impossible to obtain a picture of onr j 
second Vice President, Mrs. John P. Victory. Wv \ 
hope that the next booklet will contain a photograph 
of Mrs. Victory, who has worked long and untiringly 
for the Association. 

We trust that al' members will continue to take an 
interest in the Association and its work, and that 
their interest may increase as time goes on. May 
this interest prompt members to S3nd the Secertary 
photographs of any old Maltby homesteads, portrait?, 
relics, tombstones, etc,, and copies of interesting doc- 
uments. Only in this way can we preserve these 
things to posterity. 

The Association thanks the members for their kind 
support and encouragement, and wishes each cousin 
a happy New Year.

IDaltbie Davenport Babcock 

Rev. Maltlnt' Djivciiport Bjibeock. 1), D., was bom 
at Syracuse. N. Y., Au.onst IM, 185cS. He was the 
eldest son of Henry Babcock and Emily Maria Malt- 
bie. Her father was the Rev. Ebenezer Davenport 
Maltbie. son of David Maltbie and Nancy Davcniport 
of Stamford, Conn., who was the lineal descendant of 
Rev. John Davenport of New^ Haven, Conn. Emily 
Maria Maltbie's mother was Mary Ann Davis, 
dautchter of Rev. Henry Davis D. D.. and Haniinh 
l*lu)eiiix Tredwell. 

There were many jjenerations of the mi^st promi- 
nent, refined and cnltivated men and women behind 
Dr. Babcock and he went forth to his life work from 
an ideal home. His maternal great grandfather and 
ids grandfather were both Presbyterian clergymen. 
He was the eldest of seven children, and his mother's 
widespread religions influence, and her beautifnl life 
still speak in many of the influential circles of 
his native city. Here he was educated, taking his 
classical course at Syracuse University, and his theo- 
logical course at Auburn Seminary. In both of these 
institutions he won highest honors and hosts of 

Dr. Babcock received immediate recognition in the 
fnjiit rank of his denomination, his first settlement 
being at Lockport, N. Y. It was not only his brill- 
iant intellect and his stirring oratorical powers that 
commanded admiration, for his ministry was ideal 
and no pastor in the land was more beloved. The 
man was everywhere regarded as a personal friend. 




so cordial, so frank, so eheorhil was he always, and' 
so thoroughly unselfish. His infiuent'e became in! 
the best sense national. His theology was like his: 
vocal delivery, simple and direct. It was one scut 
speaking to another. His prayers voiced the cry ofi 
a man who wanted help from liis Father. Dr.; 
Habcock could not do anything just as anyone else; 
wouUl. "To divide burdens and centralize responsi-' 
l)ility is th(! ark of accomplishment:'* this was his; 
rule in doing his varie;l work, and it gave him hisj 
almost supreme executive ability. Perhaps there: 
was no greater tribute to his power and consecration' 
than the fact that he was invariably turned to. as a; 
sort of last resort in the attempt to bring a wander-, 
uiii soul to Christ. Often men said: ""Let us geti 

o I 

him u.idar Dr Babcack's influence; he can surely 
reach him." Dr. Babcock was a very versatile man; 
exceedingly attractive in phy.sique, pleasant in; 
inaiiiicr. with a soul that reflected God. i 

Dr. IJabcock was a clear thinker, and a fluent, 
speaker. He was noted for his broad and impartial 
charity, and his vast array of friends among the^ 
young men of hi-; country. He reached the peoploi 
in so many ways. Hi-^ personal magnetism wasi 
marvelous. Those who heard him were entranced] 
and lie was called to speak at all great religiousi 
gatherings, from one end of the country to the other 
an<l crowds, young and old. hung upon his lips.i 
Taught of the Spirit, he revealed to them the open 
heaven and the message of Jehovah. ; 

Dr. Babcjck never published a book. He lived or 
sang his thoughts. He was a great lover of musicj 
played many instruments extremely well, improvised 


(leliglitfully and also wrote many songs and hymns 
which have been published and lirfive won instant 
recognition as splendid work. But the watchword 
of his life was: "This one thing I do;" to honor his 
Master and to save souls. His poems are of 
unquestioned excellence and have been said to 
reseml)le those of Emerson. They have been pub- 
lished in connection with a memorial volume of 
extracts from sermons and addresses, gathered l)y 
his grief stricken widow, entitled "Thoughts for 
Every Day Living." His foreign letters, written 
while last abroad; to the men of the Brick Church in 
New York City were also published. 

What Dr. Babcock's work was in Baltimore it is 
simply impossible to e.stimate in an article as brief 
as this or to speak of tlie breadth and reach of that 
wonderful pastorate iu New York. His actpiaiut- 
ance was cosmopolitan : and it knew no denomina- 
tional bond, and was met by a distiaguishci 
hospitality to w^hich his wife, the daughter of a 
prominent Poughkeepsie lawyer, added both beauty 
and charm. What Dr. Babcock was in his home 
only those who lived with him and loved him, upon 
whom his devotion was showered can tell. At th<i 
time of his deatli, at Naples, Italy, May 18, 1901, in 
his forty-third year, the papers both religious and 
secular teemed with statements proving in every way 
liis remarkable power. 

One who knew Dr. Babcock intimately said: ''The 
only relief in the mystery of his untimely death it 
seemed to me, was in the fact that his character and 
work were of such potency that they jnust r(4jroduc<' 
themselves in the living.

niartba Cburcb lHaltbv 

(Mrs. Haklow Swain Love) 
Was the youngest of the ten children of Gen. Isauo 
Maltby and Lncinda Murray, his wife, who was the 
daughter of Gren. Seth Murray, an officer during the 
entire war of the Revohitiou, and who participate I 
in all of the early engagements and was present at 
the Battle of Bennington, and also at the surrender 
of Burgoyne. She was borne in Hatfield. Mass. Her 
parents removed to Waterloo. N. Y,, when she was^ 
but two years of a^e, and upon her marriage to Mr. 
Harlow S. L^ve. their home was established in Buf- 
falo, N. Y., where all of her five children M'ere born. 
Prior to 18(59 the family made several trips to Cali- 
fornia by the way of Panama, and in that year they 
located permanently in San Francisco, where Mr 
Love, until his death in lH(\i\, was a promincmt mem 
ber of the legal profession, and where, later, her son 
John became the Attorney Greneral of the state of 
California and subsequently the City an 1 County 
Attorney of San Francisco. 

Mrs. Love was a person of great intellectuality, 
refinement and cultivation, and of a lovely and grace- 
ful presence. She was endowed in an eminent degree 
with all those tender attributes which endear a woman 
to the circle of her familiar friends, and possessed 
that gentleness and benevolence of character which 
purifies and softens the social atmosphere of her sur- 
roundings. To these qualities were united an unos- 
tentatious charity nnd lielpfulness which all of her 


intimates have reason to remember with affectionate 
gratitude. Her literary attainments were of a high 
order; and for many years she contribute! to the 
public prints articles on various subjects, which were 
widely read and favorably received, She also dcwoted 
much labor and attention to genealogical research, 
aiul was instrumental in tracing and re.^cuing from 
oblivion the lines of her descent from Colonial and 
Revolutionary ancestcrs, all of whom were of distin- 
guished stock. 

Mts. Love crossed the Pacific Ocean numerous 
tnues, visiting Hong Kong, China, on the occasion of 
the marriage of her daughter Leila to William Ham- 
mond Foster, Jr., (a member of the calebrated Amer- 
icad house of Russell & Co.. Caina,) and soaie yeirs 
later making her home with her youngest daughter 
Martha, the wife of Frederick E. Fo;ter, successively 
ill Yokohama. .Japan, and Hoag Kong, China, where 
Mr. Fester represented, as General Agent, the trans- 
pacific lines of steamers plying between thos? p)rt-; 
an 1 San Francisco. Mrs. Love and her husband ai-c 
interred in Lone Mountain Cemetery. Sin Francisco, 
California, an'.l are survived (in 1908) only by their 
daughter Martha (Mrs. F. E. Foster) now residing in 
Mount Vernon. N. Y.

€apt. Jonathan lllaltbie id 

Tlirout<h the kindness of Miss Emily A. Lynes of 
Norwalk. Conn., we have secured a photograph of the' 
tombstone of Capt. Jonathan Maltbie of Revolution- 
ary War fame. Tlie stone of his wife Elizabeth 
(Allen) Maltlne will be seen beside his. 

Miss Lone.s endeavored to obtain a photograph of 
Capt. Jonathan Maltbie's commission, signed by 
(jeneral Washington, and also one of Capt. Maltbie's 
old homestead in Fairfield. Conn. We regret not 
being able to print them in Booklet Two but hope to 
do so later. 

The sketch of Jonathan Maltbie, 3d. written by' 
Miss Lyneri, will be found intensely interesting l)y 
all the members, we fee! snrp. 

"My great grandfather, Jonathan Maltbie. 3(1. the 
picture of who:;e grave accompaiues this sketeli, was 
the only (diild of Jonathan Jr. and Abigail Holmes 
Maltbie, born at Stamford, Conn.. December 17, 1744. 
He moved to Fairfield, Conn., and married Elizabeth 
the daughter of David and Sarah (Gold) Allen Oct. 
23d. 1768. He was a sea captain in the East India 
trade, and lived in one of the historical houses given 
in the '"History of Fairfield Connty'' as ''Colonial 
No. 4." This house was built in 1766 by Isaac 
Tucker, who sold it to Captain Maltbie who owned 
and occupied it during Revolutionary times, and was 
one of the few houses left standing at the burning 
of Fairfield. Mr. Henry Rowland, a grandson, in 
writing some reminiscences, states that "grandfather 

48 l!IO(41<AHIIK'AI. 

Maltbie's (house) was reserved for a cook house. 
After the conflagration the inhabitants returned 
(when the British had gone on board their ships. ) 
(grandfather Maltbie on returning to his house found 
all their valuable china scooped off the shelves on to 
the floor and broken into pieces and everything up- 
side down. In the kitchen in the fireplace hung a 
large brass kettle filled with their ham^, but they 
dare not eat them, fearing that they were poisoned, 
(so they started anew with provision?.)" Captain 
Maltbie's son William inherited this place and sold 
it to Jiistin Hobart. The house is still standing 
today in good conditition. Jonathan Maltbie was 
1st Lieutenant of the "Trumbull," one of the first 
•cruisers built for the Continental navy; Dudley Sal- 
tonstall. Commander. She went into service about 
April. 1780, carrying 28 guns and her crew nund)ered 
200. Her first engagement under Captain Nicholson, 
occurred June 2d of the same year; with the "Watt," 
an English letter-of-mar(pie, under Captain Cvoleharl. 
She carried ii4 guns and 250 men. The "Watt" was 
a private vessel with a. cargo of great value, and was 
especially equipped to fight her way. Tiiis was the 
first action of any moment that occurred in 1780 and 
had the reputation of being tlic most obstinate and 
sanguinary naval battle during the Revolution. Tln^ 
"Truml)uH" being badly disabled faile 1 to capture 
the "Watt." although she defeated her. The n 'xt 
summer. 1781. she left the Delaware, still under 
C'aptain Nicholson, having been thoroughly equipped 
as convoy to 28 sail of merchant craft bound for 
Cape Francois, West Indies. Off the c.ipe, tlie 
''Trumbull'" met three British cruisers astern. Two 
of them, one being a frigate, stood for the •'Trum- 





bull" — which ship by hauling up gained the wind of 
them. While standing on in this manner, hoping 
everything from the darkness, which was fast ap- 
proaching, a gale carried away the "Trumbuirs" 
fore top mast, which, in falling, brought down the 
main gallant mast. She was otherwise disabled and 
night coming on was unable to clear up the wreck. 
At 10 o'clock the Iris. H2 guns, one of the vessels 
ill chase, closed with her and forced her to cond>at, 
III the midst of rain and t.-mpestuous winds Captain 
Nicholson found himself ol)lige(l to go to (juarters or 
lo strike, without resistance. He preferred to do the 
first, but till' English volunteers on l)oard his ship, 
instead of obeying onlers, went below, extinguislied 
lights and secreted themselves. Near half the re- 
maining men followed their example and Captain 
Nicholson, could not muster fifty of even the dimin- 
ished crew he had at the guns. The liattle that 
followed might almost be said to have l^een fought by 
the officers. These l)rave men sustained by a party 
of the petty officers and seamen managed a few of 
the guns for more than an hour, when the "General 
Monk," 18 guns, coming up and joining in the tir»' 
of the "Iris." the "Trumbull"' submitted. The 
•'Trumbull," after her capture, was towed into New 
York harbor and condemned. Thougli unsuccessful 
in her battles, she still fought two of the most famous 
tiglits that took place on the ocean during the excit- 
ing times of the Revolution. Jonathan Maltby was 
afterwards appointed Master of the -'Argus," a 
cutter in the service of the United States for the pro- 
tection of the revenue. He died Feb. 11th, 1798, 
while in command of this vessel, and was liuried in 


the old cemetery at Fairtield, Oonn. The date of 
Jonathan Maltbie's commission as 1st Lieutenant— 
Oct. 12th, 177H. Date of commission as Captain by 
George Washington — March 21st, 1791. These com- 
missions were in the family of his son William who 
lived in the South, and were said to have been given 
to some Historical Society." " 



Many of the descendants have expressed a wish to 
know something about Brant'ord of the early days, 
and the following sketch, taken from an essay written 
by Miss Olive Hall Pond of Branford, gives us a very 
good idea of the Branford our early ancestors knew. 

"Branford" was ijurchased from the Indians in 
the year 1638 for the sum of $70 and settled six years 
later (1644) by forty men and their families, who 
came from Wethersfield," etc., etc. 

"At first, the chief occupation was farming, but the 
people soon found the land was not remarkable for 
its fertility. Branford harbor was then much deeper 
than it is at the present time, and furnished excellent 
facilities for ships engaging in trade with the West 
Indies, Consequently, merchandise from foreign 
ports was brought to Branford and was then carried 
over the hills to New Haven, which at that time dii] 
not have a good harbor. 

Trading necessitated the building of ships. Vessels 
suitable to transport merchandise to all parts of the 
world were built where the swimming pool at Mill 
Plain is now located," etc, 

"It is interesting to picture the town as we find it 
in the year 1700" (ten years prior to the death of 
William Maltby. ) "The green was then, as now, the 
center of the town. Large rocks, boulders, and tall 
grass completely covered it. 

There was but one church, which stool where 
the town hall does today. This was called the new 
meeting house, the first having been built on the site 
of the cemetery and surrounded by a high stockade, 
as a protection from hostile Indians. 


Scattered around the green were the "Sabbath Day 
Houses." They were used by families who came 
from a long distance. They afforded the people 
places to rest and warm themselves during the noon 
hour, for the church services there lasted nearly all 

Two other conspicuous structures on the green were 
the blacksmith shop and the whipping post. The 
shop stood in the hollow back of the church, the 
whipping post and public stocks on the hill where 
the Baptist church now stands. 

There were but few public highways, the chief of 
which led from New Haven through the town of 
Branford to (xuilford. Mantowese street, named from 
the Indians, ran as now from the center to the river. 
Here it turned, following the present course of the 
railroad, thence back to the green. A street upon 
which the minister and several officials of the town 
lived, led from Montowese street j east to the river, 
somewhat similar to Averill &, venue. This was called 
"Pig Lane." • 

The first post-office with public store combined, 
stood on the site of the Lock works. Thi? hollow 
formed the principal business section of Branford. 

The kindergarten, grammar and high school com- 
bined, consisted of one building, the academy, which 
now stands, the only remaining relic of former day?. 

It is most amusing to notice some of the customs 
and restrictions of that time. Chief among these 
were the church laws. Sunday morning a drum was 
beaten to call the members to church. Every person 
who did not attend, arrive on time, and stay until 
the service was over, was heavily fined. Besides this 



a man was hired to go among the congregation, dur- 
ing the service and prevent them from going to sleep. 
This he accomplished by means of a long pole. Any 
weary mortal who chanced to close his eyes for a 
moment's rest would receive a vigorous poke of the 
pole, with a command to wake up and listen to the 
words of the Gospel. 

On this day the green was transformed into a lively 
scene. The farmers and their entire families drove 
into town in their large open wagons; one man com- 
ing all the way from Northford, regularly attended 
with his wife and 26 children. 

Another law of si)ecial importance, the fines for 
the violation of which would make Branford of today 
very wealthy, if the law were enforced, was what was 
known in England as the curfew law. This stated 
that the streets must be vacated, fires banked and 
every man in his home at 10 o'clock." 

The above interesting sketch of Miss Pond's gives 
one a very good idea of the town of Branford in the 
early days — the town as it was when the home of our 
emigrant ancestor, William Maltby. 



Our Emigrant Ancestor. 

In the year 1645, as we learn from his tombstone * 
our emigrant ancestor, William Maltby, was born. 
Where he was born, and who were his parents is not 
as yet known, though recent searches in England 
give us strong clues towards answering these ques- 
tions. What these clnes are will be found in another 
part of this booklet, We know but little of his fami- 
ly. He had a brother John, probably older, who 
emigrated to "New England with him. There was a 
near relative named Kobert Maltby e, as a deed of 
land of William's is dated Branford, April, 1673, and 
is witnessed by one Robert Maltbye. 

The "Dwight Strong Genealogy" states on page 
354, "John Maltby, Sr., came with his brother 
William, both of the rank of 'gentleman,' from York- 
shire, England, to New Haven, about 1670." 

It may be that the emigrants were not direct from 
Yorkshire, but it seems almost certain that they were 
of the .Yorkshire Mai tbys. If we can prove this fact 
we shall have established our descent from one of the 
oldest families in England— descending probably 
from ' 'Crowned Heads." Hugo de Maltby held lands 
in England at the time of the Norman Conquest and 


A reproduction of William Maltby's Tombstone 
appears with the secretary's second annual report pub- 
lished in the latter part of this Booklet. 


it is SO recorded in the Doomsday Book. Prior to 
this, the Maltbys were undoubtedly Danes, and came 
down in the Viking ships, landing on the northeast- 
ern coast of England. The name Maltby shows the 
Danish origin — by meaning town — and the malt may 
have meant grain, or some think it is derived from 
mael — mahel — mill. 

What the life of William and John Maltby was in 
England we can only surmise. They evidently lived 
near the coast and were probably sea-faring people. 
In fact it seems very probable that they left England 
in their own ships, and sailed for the New World via 
the West Indies. Probably they had relatives living 
in the West Indies as we know that Christoijher 
Maltby, alderman of York, buried his wife in St. 
Croix about the year 1600. Mrs. Christopher had a 
sister Jane, married in 1604, and it seems to the 
writer, that they were very probably nearly related to 
the father of William Maltby. 

We know that our American Maltbys had inter- 
ests in the West Indies as we fiad in the Inventory 
of the estate of William Maltby Jr. : 

"Debts due ye estate in £ s d 

naroaaoes — ).^unary iiems. 




The Estate Dr. to Mr. John 

Morris, for freight, 



M. Maltbie, widow, April 20, 1701 18 10 4\ 

(Note — Mr. John Morris was probably his father- 
in-law, as he married Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. 
John Morris. ) 

As we have been unable to secure facts pertaining 


to the early life of our emigrant ancestor we have had 
to resort to deduction, and after many years of study- 
ing the situation, the following ideas have been woven 
together. Probably the father of William and John 
died when they were small, or w^e should have had 
some information as to their father's name — or we 
should probably find William or John being called 
"Junior." From the names of William's children 
we can form some idea as to what his parents w^ere 
named. Lst us look at the3e name?: 

1. John Mai thy, b (peihaus named for his father. 

'-'. Jane Malthy. b (perhaps for his wife Hannah or Jane.) 

;i Mary >laltl)y, b. Hi?'-' " " " mother. 

4. William Maltl)y, b. lt)73, for himself-perhaps liis grandfather 
n. Elizabeth, l)orn liiTii, (perhaps a near relative, 1 

(). Daniel Maltby, b, 1()79 " " " 

7. Samuel Maltby, b. VMi | (evidently Bishop 

5. Jonathan Maltby, b. 1098 ( family names.) 

(Tne above names are given here so they may be 
compared with those found in the English research 
work oil another page.) 

Suppose their father to have died early in life, and 
po isibly their mother marrie 1 again, it would have 
left the emigrants with few home ties, aad a natural 
step would be for them to seek their fortune in the 
New World, and especially so, if they already had 
relatives in the West Indies. 

It will be noticed that no dates of birth are given 
for Johti (2), Jane (2), and this is because we do not 
know where they were born. They might have been 
born in England, or the West Indies. Neither do we 
know where William Maltby was married, but w^e 
feel very sure that the name of his first wife was 
Hannah — as we find William and Hannah Maltby 
together joining the church in Branford in the year 
1688. Where Hannah Maltby died is not known, 
though she was living in 1689-90 as she signs as wit- 
ness a deel of John Yales, at this date. 


I Velieve the earliest record found of William 
Maltby is the birth of his daughter Mary, born in 
1()72, and recorded at New Haven, Conn. 

The earliest mention of the name as yet found is 
under date 1664 when "I" (probably J.) Maltbie 
witnessed a deed for Alexander Bryan. (Alexander 
Bryan was the grandfather of Mary Bryan, who later 
married John Maltby the emigrant.) 

It is interesting to know something of the social 
standing and prosperity of our emigrant ancestor 
in New England, and this can best be done l)y qiiot- 
ing various authors: 

■'Among the men who came to Branford soon after 
the Newark exodus (about 1666) were Eleazer Stent, 
William Kosewell, William Maltbie and Samuel 
Pond. They became especially prominent" — Baldwin 
in his Brantford Annals (N. H. Hist. Soc. Papers, 
Vol. Ill, p. 265) and on page 270: 

"The Wilfords, Maultbies, Bakers and Johnsons, 
that are leading names in Brantford at this time, 
were of the merchant class and apparently wealthy. 
They became large land holders. 

The society at Branford at this time must have 
been most select, comprising the governor and others 
named," etc. 

Annals of Branford, page 300 : ' 'Large and most 
substantial houses were erected by the new settlers, 
some of whom were possessed of considerable pro- 
perty. This was especially true of the Bartholomews, 
Maltbies, Wilfords, Greys, Stents, Goulds, Bakers, 
Barnes and Bladestones. * * * The Hoadley, 
Maltbie, Rose, Poote and Harrison families present 
so many names that were prominently identified with 


the Church, Town and business during this period, 
time fails me to speak individually of them." 

There are many other records, private and public 
to show that theMaltbys were a i^rominent Connecti- 
cut family. 

William Maltby's public life can best be shown by 
quoting from the "Pablic Records of Connecticut." 
In these records his name is variously recorded as: 

Maultbey— Maltbey— Malbye— Maltby -Malby— 
Malbie and Mai bury.

the- same in Court." 
The Colony records furnish other interesting rec- 
ords of William Maltby, but we have not the volumes 
at hand, nor does space allow further quotations. 
Enough has been said to show that our emigrant 
ancestor held a prominent place in the public affairs 
of his day. 

It is not generally known that the prefix "Esqre." 
and '"Mr." w^ere not applied in the early days as they 
are novv, jiromiscuously. In connection with the 
above Colony records it might be interesting to 
know something of what a prefix of respect meant in 
the early days. The following item is taken from the 


"Tuttle Family Greuealogy." The title Hon. was 
entirely unknown in our records until 1685. and sub- 
sequently for many years was applied only to the 
Governor, and seldom even to him. The next title 
was that of Esqre., and meant the same as in England . 
temip. Elizabeth and James I. 

Mr. Thomas Wells was magistrate for 17 years, 
deputy governor one year, and was chosen Gov. the 
2d time before be was distinguished with Esq. The 
next title was Gentleman, but seems to have been 
soon discarded in Connecticut. The prefix Master 
(Mr.) belonged to all gcnitlemen, including those des- 
ignated by the higher modes of rank. Master corre- 
sponds very nearly to the English w^ord gentleman. 
In Connecticut it embraced clergymen, and planters 
of good family and estate who were members of the 
Gen. Court, tho.e bred at an university anctiTio^ of 
sufficient education to manage the general affairs of 
the Colony, civil or ecclesiastical, and who had been 
sufficiently well born. Comparatively few of the 
representatives of the town, even though they might 
be returned year after year, were honored with the 
title. To be called Mr. or to have one's name re- 
corded by the Secretary with that prefix 200 years 
ago was a more certain index of the rank of the indi- 
vidual as respects birth, education and good moral 
character than any one of the high sounding titles 
with which many men of no merit whatever, in our 
day of s-v^-ift locomotion are content to cajole others 
in order that they may be enriched in their turn with 
the same spurious currency. It may be observed by 
reference to our colonial records that there were 
scores of men of good family and in honorable stations 


who still did not po&sess all the requisite qualities of 
Master. It was seldom that young men of whatever 
rank were called Master. Sir was sometimes ap- 
plied to young gentlemen undergraduates at a college. 
Mrs. was applied to the wives of Masters and also to 
unmarried females of the higher class. 

Military titles were considered of a very high 
order. Previous to 1654 the highest military officer 
in the colony was Captain.'" — HoUister's Hist, of 

Palfrey in Hist, of N. Eng. says: There was great 
punctiliousness in the application of both official and 
conventional titles. Only a small number of persons 
of the best condition (always including ministers and 
their wives) had Mr. or Mrs. prefixed to their names. 
. . . . Wm. Bradford, though at the head of the Bridge- 
water, Mass., proprietors, a son of the Gov., and 
himself often Lieut. Gov., was not entitled to "Mr." 

A word as to the "'worldly goods'' possessed by our 
emigrant ancestor. The inventory of his personal 
estate was taken November 2d, 1710, and it assets 
,£1058, 7s. and lOd. This figure does not seem very 
large in these days, but an examination of the estates 
settled about the year 1700 will show that our emi- 
grant ancestor was, by comparison, wealthy. Among 
the interesting things mentioned in the inventory are 
the following: 

. 'Wearine: Apparel — Woolen and linen £23, 4s., 6d. 

A negro man (from the West Indies probably) £45 

A negro woman " " " " £30 

A cupboard with drawers £ 2, 5s. 


A ^reat table, 12s. Six leather chairs, 24s. Six other chairB 
£1, 4s. 2 chairs, 8s. (Note the le.dthfr chairs, and the num- 
ber of chairs for those days ) 2 pictures, 10s. A greate look- 
ing Glass, £1. Ivory headed cane, Gs. Silver headed cane, 
123. Looking glass, Cs. 82 lbs. of ginger, £1, 6s. A chest, 4s. 
Iron beds and furniture (value not given.) 20 lbs. tobacco, 
6s., 8d. A quilt, £2, 10s. ($10.00) 3 forks, 2s. Spoons. A 
tablecloth. Is. 6d, Napkins, Os. Tablecloth, lis. More nap- 
kins, £1, 16s. Towels, 5s. A great Bible, £3. More books, 
£1, 10s. A chest s'ith drawers, £3. A desk, 48. Uandle.^tick 
7s. 6d. Ch.iirs, 16s. Table, 5s. A silver cup, €2, 10s. 

The reading of the above with a little thought will 
prove to all minds that William Maltby had comforts 
and even luxuries not common in the time in which 
he lived. 

The inventory of the estate of William's brother 
John, taken in 1676 also contains articles of interest. 
We mention two: 

7 alcumy spoons, 2s. 1 pay re of gloves, 33. 

In the early days very few people had spoons, and 
we can form some idea of how much they were 
thought of from the following extract from Alice 
Morse Earle's "China Collecting in America," p. 43. 
She mentions how fevv people possessed spoons, and 
goes on to say, "Extremely elegant people had spoons 
of alchymy or occjmy, alcaney, alcamy, acoury, aska- 
my, accamey, as I have seen it spelt, a metal com- 
posed of pan brass and ar,-enicum. 

Inventory of William (2) Maltby, Jr. estate 
mentions one or two interesting things, namely: 

Hatt £1, 13s. 

Books 4s. 

A chest of drawers 6, 10s., 30d. 

Seven pair of sheets 15, 

2 pair sheets 4, 

Man Servant 16, 

Negro Boy 20. 

The will of William Maltby, Senior, and the inven- 
tory of his estate shows him to have been quite a 


large land-owner — some of the lands mentioned are 
the followmg: "First, I give and bequeath unto my 
oldest sonn John Maltby all that house and land 
which I bought for him at Say brook; being all the 
lands I have there with the appurtenances thereof, of 
which sd house and land my sd sonn now stands 
seized and possessed — also I give and bequeath unto 
him my sd. sonn John Maltby my allottment of land 
which I bought of Capt. Merriman and Thomas Hall 
in quantity about one hundred acres lying between 
the bounds of Wallingford and Middletown and an 
equal share with the rest of my children in my com- 
mons and undivided land within the town of Bran- 
ford," etc. '"Also I give and confirm unto my sd. 
grand -on William Maltby sixty-four acres of land at 
that place callei Tibbs Hill in the third division 
in Branford aforesaid with the addition northward 
adjoining those unto which all parcell of land with 
the appurtenances thereof," etc. "I give and be- 
queath unto my loving son Daniel Maltby all that 
house and lauds that he now stands in poseession of 
in the town of Branford, the homlott being in quan- 
tity ten acres be it more or less, also all my land -at 
Mulliner's Neck and my divition there also. I 
further give my sd. son Daniel all my land on Bushy 
Plaine, containing thirteen acres be it more or less, 
all which land and appurtenances my will is shall be 
and remain to him," etc. "I give and bequeath unto 
my loving son Samuell Maltby my orchard that lieth 
eastward of my now dwelling house in Branford from 
the street to the salt meadow," etc. "I give and be- 
queath unto my loving son Jonathan Maltby my 


mansion house I now dwell in within the precinct of 
Br anf ord af ores' d with the homlott of land thereto 
adjoining and belonging together with all housing, 
buildings, edifices and appurtenances thereunto be- 
longing," etc. 

Item: "I give unto my daughter Jane Parker the 
bed, bedstead hangings and furniture thereof in my 
hall which were her mother's." 

(Note the "which were her mothers— referring to his first 
wife -as Abigail liishop, born 1(359, married John Tahiiadgein 
1686 it is evident that John 1, Jane 2, Mary 3, William 4, 
Elizabeth 5 and Daniel (J were children of a first wife.) 

1 give and bequeath to riiy aforesaid sons John 
Maltby and Daniel Maltby the remainder of my 
fourth division lotts beyond Tibb's Hill," etc. 

The inventory of his estate mentions: 

"15 acres of land at Scotch Cap. • 

About 8 acres of salt meadow at the same place, 
About 12 acres of rough land at Scotch Cap. 
9 acres of land at Great Plaine. 
5 acres of land at Indian Neck. 
3^^ acres of land at Point Lotte. 

2 acres of meadow at Indian Neck. 
^4 acre of meadow. 

3 acres of Salt meadow at Peters Bridge. 
A small parcell of fresh meadow. 

I acre of Salt meadow in the mill quarter. 
21 acres of cow pasture. 

103 acres of land lying between the bounds of Wallingford 
and Middletown. 

76 acres of land at Sea Hill. 
.About 100 acres of land at Sibbes, 
8 acres of land at Cravery Swamp. 

From the above records we can form some idea as 
to the prosperity of our emigrant ancestor. 

A word as to the reasons for thinking that the first 
wife of M^illiam was Hannah 


The Branford Church records, March 7, 1687-8 
has the following: 


Saml. Russell and woiiieu Eliz. Darker 

Wm. Maltby Hannah Maltby 

Eleazer Stone Sarah Blar 

Saral. Pond Pond 

John Frisbie Dorcas Taintor 
John Taintor," 
etc., etc. 

Saml. Russell was the minister, and had the first 
pew in the church in consequence. After the minis- 
ter the people of highest rank were seated. Why 
Eliz. Barker is named first among the women we do 
not know— there is a possibility that she was Hannah 
Maltby's mother. 

In 1682 we find a curious spelling of the name in 
the record, that, "Mr. William Mawbley and Noah 
Rogers are presented for freemen." 

The above sketch, will, we trust, give some idea of 
the life of William Maltby, "Esqre.," who died in 
Branford, Conn., Sept. 1. 1710, aged 65 years. 


Old Malthy Homestead, Northford, Conn. 


The old Maltby homestead shown in the photograph 
was the residence of John Maltby (5), born Decem- 
ber 8, 1768. He was a son of Samnel 3d and Rosanna 
Coe — and descended from Samuel (2) — the photo- 
graph of whose tombstone appears on page 70. 

This homestead is typical of the old New England 
houses, now becoming so rare. 

We are indebted to Miss Mary J. Maltby, of North- 
ford, for this artistic jDhotograph, as weW as the one 
of Capt. Bamuers (2) tombstone, and consider that 
we were x^articularly fortunate in securing this 
picture of the only old Maltby homestead left stand- 
ing in North ford. 

The homestead descended to Samuel Chauncey (6) 
Maltby who married Ruth Collins in 1819. He died 
in 1829, and his widow lived here alone after her 
husband's death. The place used to be called "the 
Ruth Maltby place." The homestead was afterwards 
sold to W. Tucker.

Mr. Maltby's work is so well known, and his fame 
as a hydraulic engineer and an expert on all classes 
of dredging operations, is so widespread, that any 
remarks of the writer would be superfluous. 

Dodge and Day, for whom Mr. Maltby is chief 
engineer, now have the contract for the erection of 
the largest cableway plant in the world for handling 
material at Gatun on the Isthmus. 

Mr. Maltby's line of descent is given below: 

1. William Maltby, mar. Hannah 

2. Daniel Maltby, mar. Esther Moss. 

3. Daniel Maltby, mar. Mary Harrison. 

4. Benjamin Maltby (K. W.) mar. Abigail Munger. 
fi. Nathaniel Harrison Maltby, mar. Betsy Patchin. 

6. Warren Maltby, mar. Chloe Elizabeth Bierce. 

7. FranJi Bierce Maltby, mar. Margaret Ellen McNary. 

Mr. Maltby has two daughters: 

Miss Ruth McNary Maltby and 
MisB Marion Elizabeth Maltby. 


We take pleasure in being able to print for the 
members, the following short sketch of Miss Margaret 
E. Maltby, the only woman professor at Columbia 

Miss Maltby's degrees are: Oberlin, A. B. (1882); 
A M. (1891): Mass. Institute of Technology, S. B. 
(1891); Gottingen University (Germany) Ph. D. 

The following fellowships have been held by Miss 
Maltby: Foreign Scholarship (or Fellowship) from 
Mass. Institute of Technology two years while in 
Gottingen '93-'95. The foreign fellowship of the 
Association of Collegiate Alumnae, '95-' 96. 

Miss Maltby is a fellow of the American Associa- 
tion for the Advancement of Science, and was private 
research assistant to President Kohlbrausch of the 
Physikalisch-Technische Reichsaustalt '93-'99. 

In 1899-1900 Miss Maltby studied at Clark Univer- 
sity with Professor Webster; for four years and a 
half she taught at Wellesley College ; one year at 
Lake Erie College and eight years at Barnard, 

At present Miss Maltby is Adjunct Professor in 
charge of the Department of Physics of Barnard 
Columbia University — whicli post she has held since 
the summer of 1903. 

We regret exceedingly that we were not fortunate 

enough to secure a photograph of Miss Maltby, as we 

know all the members would be interested to see 

their kinswoman, who has made so brilliant a record 

'in the world of science.

Cbe Cnfliisb Research. 

Early in tlie year the Association took steps to start 
the research work in Enii;lan(l. Three relia])le persons 
were recomnieiuled and alter some correspdiHlencf i( , 
seemed best to give the task to Mr. (lerahl Fother- ^ 
gill. His estimates were no higher than those <■ ,, 
received from the other partie-, and his previous] '< 
work seemed to especially fit him for our needs. Mr. 
Fothergill is the author of "Li.-t of Emigrant Minis- 
ters to America;" "•Calendar of Feet of Fines for 
Essex;"' "Histories of I'nwin ;iiid Scott Families," 
etc. His "Emigrants to America — How to Trace 
their p]nglish Ancestry" is a mo4 heli)ful booklet, 
recently pvd)lished in \'ol. I. of '"The (Tciiealogist's 
Pocket Library." Mr. FothergilTs "Emigrants from 
England" which ap^x-ars in the current issue of "The 
New England Hi^•tori(•al and Genealogical Register" fr 
will be found very helpful to those who.e ancestors 
emigranted about 1774. 

In April we seat ten pounds ($4H.70) to Mr. Foth- 
ergill with which to commence the research. 

For this sum we received abstracts of Maltby wills 
at York from 1()8()-17(J<). and Maltby wills in T'errog- 
ative Court of Canterbury 1H5U-1719. 

These wills have been carefully gone over, and wey ^ 
find only one which could fit in with the dates, etc.,1 \ 
of our emigrant ancestor. This will doe.s seem toP| <* 
dovetail in every particular. It is the will of John 
Maltby. of East Retford, Co. Nottingham. Alderman. 
Dated 6 Oct. 1647— Codicil 28 Dec. 1647. 

We give this will on page 79— also will of John's

In this will of John's wo find him living just over 
the Yorkshire border, an Alderman — which we un- 
derstand was at this period % jiost of some honor. 
We learn from lands and so forth mentioned in his 
will that he was fairly wealthy. We ajso learn that 
his sons Jon and William were in their "nonage" — 
hence under 21 years of age. From Robert's will we 
learn that the child of John born about Dec. 1647, 
was named Ro. — or Robert. Also we learn that as 
John Maltby's will was filed in April, 1(348, he died 
leaving young children. We insert a pedigree made 
from the three wills given above, and a careful study 
of them will show what strong circumstantial evi- 
dence there is that we have found the parentage of 
our emigrant ancestors — John and William Maltby.

ZU Gnsiisb Research. 

Early in the year the Association took steps to start 
the research work in England. Three reUable persons 
were recommended and after some correspondence it 
seemed best to give the task to Mr. Gerald Fother- 
gill. His estimates were no higher than those 
received from the other partie?, and his previous 
work seemed to especially lit him for our needs. Mr, 
Fothergill is the author of "List of Emigrant Minis- 
ters to America;'" "Calendar of Feet of Fines for 
Essex:" "Histories of Unwin and Scott Families," 
etc. His "Emigrants to America — How to Trace 
their English Ancestry" is a most helpful booklet, 
recently published in Vol. I. of "The (ienealogist's 
Pocket Library. "" Mr. Fothergill's "Emigrants from 
England" which appears in the current issue of "The 
New England Historical and (genealogical Register" 
will be found very helpful to those whose ancestors 
emigranted about 1774. 

In April we sent ten pounds (|48.70) to Mr. Foth- 
ergill with which to commence the research. 

For this sum we received abstracts of Maltby wills 
at York from 1636-1700, and Maltby wills in Perrog- 
ative Court of Canterbury 1650-1719. 

These wills have been carefully gone over, and we 
tind only one which could tit in with the dates, etc., 
of our emigrant ancestor. This will does seem to 
dovetail in every particular. It is the will of John 
Maltby, of East Retford, Co. Nottingham, Alderman. 
Dated 6 Oct. 1647— Codicil 28 Dec, 1647. 

We give this will on page 79 — also will of John's 
brother Robert Maltby, of Bawtry, Yorks.. and lastly 
tho will of Robert's son, William Maltby, Gent.

In this will of John's we find him living just over 
the Yorkshire border, an Alderman — which we un- 
derstand was at this period a post of some honor. 
We learn from lands and so forth mentioned in his 
will that he was fairly wealthy. We also learn that 
his sons Jon and William were in their "nonage" — 
hence under 21 years of age. From Robert's will we 
learn that the child of John born about Dec. 1647, 
was named Ro. — or Robert. Also we learn tfiat as 
John Maltby's will was tiled in April. I(j48, he died 
leaving young children. We insert a pedigree made 
from the three wills given above, and a careful study 
of them will show what strong circumstantial evi- 
dence there is that we have found the parentage of 
our emigrant ancestors — John and William Maltby.

Having found the above pedigree which seemed to 
be the one for which w^e were seeking, we sent live 
shillings to the Vicar of East Retford to search the 
parish register for the birth of William, son of John 
Maltby. We received the following: 

Baptism solemnized in the Parish of East Retford 
in the County of Nottingham in the year of our Lord 
one fhousand six hundred and forty-four — 

"William, ye <oun of John Maltby: March 16." 

The above is a true copy of the Baptismal Register 
of the Parish aforesaid extracted this 31st 'day of 
July in the year of our Lord one thousand nine 
hundred and eight. 

By me: John Twaits Mumford, 


Of course this date is 1644-45, or new style 1645 — 
the EXACT year in which our ancestor William was 
born. (See tombstone illustration in latter part of 
this l)ooklet. ) 

Suppose for an instant that the William, son of 
John of East Retford and William the emigrant are 
one and the same, and then notice the names in the 
English pedigree and the names of the emigrant's 
children. We find William born in 1644-45; we find 
he has an older brother John (it has always been 
supposed that John the emigrant was older than his 
brother William.) We find a younger brother Ro- 
bert, who would have been twenty-five or tw^enty-six 
years of age when the Robert Maltbye witnessed the 
deed in Branford for William in 1673. Also if he 
was a brother of John and William he evidently died 
unmarried or returned to England, and this would 
account for the confusion in the tradition — some de- 
scendants claiming, "two brothers came from Eng- 
land.'' some that "three brothers came.'" We find 


the emigrant William naming his oldest son John — 
for John his father — his oldest daughter was Jane — 
named for his sister — then Mary, named for his 
mother — Elizabeth named for his sister, and Daniel 
named for a favorite cousin. William wa? of course 
named for himself. 

The fact that his father John die! when the 
children were all so young would explain why there 
is no record as to who their father was. Their uncle 
Robert an 1 his family were evidently their only 
Mnltbi/ relations, and as Robert's will is proved in 
16(i8-5. his death broke one of the last home ties, and 
shortly after we find William in New England. Not 
only did their uncle Robert die, but his oldest son 
William was dead in 1666-7. It is noteworthy that 
this cousin William left only five pounds to his 
brother Robert, wdio was next in age, and only twenty 
shillings to the next brother John, and gave the bulk 
of his property to the yoangest brother Daniel and 
his sister Barbara. Also we note that after the death 
of Daniel and Barbara the property is left to his 
cousin Wm. Stokeham. It would seem that William 
did not expect Daniel and Barbara to marry. We 
had the marriage register at East Retford examined 
to see if. the marriage of William Maltby was recorded 
in this parish —but no such record occurred. As 
William received in his father's will, lands in Soning- 
thorpe and Little Coningham, Co. Lincoln — it is 
possible that he may have resided in Lincoln. Or he 
may have lived with his uncle Robert in Bawtry, 

After receiving the data given above we were 
anxious to press on with the work. To do this we 
needed — and need — considerable money. Genealogi- 


cal work is expensive enough iu the States, but very 
much more so in England, where there is a fee to be 
paid for everything. For example, to examine a 
church register yon pay one shilling for the first year 
and sixpence for each year after. This is but one 
out of many instances. 

The Association had expended all we felt it could 
afford for the present, and as money had to be ob- 
tained, circular letters were issued, stating our needs 
and giving the descendants the opportunity of aiding 
in the good work if they cared to do so. 

We wish to thank most heartily those who resjjond- 
ed so generously and Millingly to our appeal, and 
whose names are given in the financial statement on 
page 85. 

The officers hope and expect the day will come 
when our memtership will be sufficient to cover all 
expenses; w^ieii the booklets will be paid for by the 
Association; the English research be entirely financed 
from the treasury. But that day is not yet, and al- 
though we have received such welcome assistance we 
need more — and we are going to need more. 

We do not wish to beg or to urge contributions, 
but we know there must be plenty of descendants who 
could givea check for this fund and never miss it. 

It has been decided to keep the English fund a 
permanent fixture, with the hope that from time to 
time descendants will feel like sending some contri- 

One member wrote as follows : ' 'I would suggest 
that we all pay |1 a year for the work 'till 1910 when 
we meet in Branford and learn the results." This 
would be a great help of course, and we thank the 
member for the suggestion. However, we fully realize 


that there are plenty of Maltby descendants who do not 
care whether or not their English ancestry is found 
and would prefer to spend their dollars in other ways. 
Our plea for help is not to them, but to those who 
profess interest, and are abundantly able to aid in 
this work. 

Let us hope that the New Year will bring many 
subscriptions to this fund from those who have not 
already subscribed.

Since writing the above report, Mr. Fothergill has 
sent quite a number of extracts from chancery plead- 
ings. These do not at present solve the problem as 
to our English ancestry, but they furnish much valu- 


able information From them we have learned quite 
a bit more concerning the Bawtry Maltbys. and the 
genealogist has made the additional data on the ped- 
igree below 

In addition to the work done by Mr. Fothergill a 
query was inserted during the year in the "Interna- 
tional Genealogical Directory" soon to be issued, 
with the hope that it might bring some information 
which would help us in the tracing of our English

The said pedigree of the Yorkshire Maltbys, 
giving sixteen generations, and dating ])ack to William 
de Maltby, who was living A. D. 1100, is the line to 
which we think we belong. The male line died out 
in this particular pedigree with Christopher (16) but 
this chart only deals with the line of the oldest sons 
or where the oldest sons line died out, with the next 
male heir in succession. Possibly we shall find that 
our line of descent branched with Robert (11) as this 
name seems to have come down in the family of our 
emigrant ancestor, and in the Bawtry Maltby family.

nialtby €bapeK 


Maltby chapel, as you know, 
Fell two Imiidred years ago. 
Hardly now is left a stone, 
Save upon the graves alone. 
If your feet should chance to pass. 
Weary through the churchyard grass, 
Rest them by a marble tomb 
Crumbling over bride and groom, 
Who, when they were hardly wed, 
Found the grave their bridal -bed. 

Flowering in the wall on high. 
Like a garden in the sky, 
Stood a window of the fane. 
Whence, through many a rosy pane. 
Lights of purple, blue and red, 
Down through nave and aisle were slied. 
Central in the fair design 
Hung the Sorrowing Man divine; 
Near him, gazing, knelt or stood 
Mary's weeping sisterhood; 
Next, with colors interchanged. 
Holy emblems 'round were ranged. 
First a light, and then a dark: — 
Here the lion of St. Mark; 
There the eagle of St. John; 
Cherub heads with pinions on; 
Virgin lilies, wliite as frost: 



Palm and olive branches, crossed: 

Picture of Paschal Lamb; 

Letters of the great I Am; 

Last and topmost, Cross and Crown 

And a white Dove flying down. 

Such a window, in the light, 

Was itself a wondrous sight; 

But the eyes that on it gazed 

Saw devoutly, as it blazed. 

Not the purple panes alone; 

Not the sun that through them shone. 

But, beyond the, lucent wall. 

Heaven itself outshining all. 

Up through Maltby's dusty road 
Cromwell and his pikemen strode — 
Six and twenty hundred strong — 
Roaring forth a battle-song; 
Who, in march i*ng to the fray. 
Passed the chapel on their way; 
Never dreaming how. inside, 
Knelt a bridegroom and his bride, — 
She the daughter of a peer; 
He a knight and cavalier. 
Quoth the leader, "Rub the stains 
Out of yonder painted panes." 
(jrlancing at a mark to strike. 
Then a j)ikeman raised his pike. 
Drew it back half its length. 
Sent it whizzing through the air, 
Sped it with a pious ijrayer, 
Winged it with a holy curse, 
Bfirbed it with n Scripture verse; 


Heard it crash through pane and sash. 
'Till, above the tinkling crash. 
Loud his shouting mates exclaimed: 
"Bravo, Ironsides! well aimed! 
So may every church of sin 
Have the light of God let in." 


Like the spear that pierced the side 

Of the Savior crucified, 

So the weapon that was hurled 

Smote the Savior of the world; 

Tearing out the sacred tree 

Where he hung for yon and me; 

Curving downward, tiying fast 

Where the streaming rays were cast; 

Flashing from the shaft each hue 

Which it caught in quivering through ; 

Plunging to the bridal pair, 

While they yet were bent in prayer; 

Then, like Death's own dart, 

Pierced the maiden to the heart. 

Back site fell against the floor. 

Lying crimson in her gore, 

'Till her bloodless face grew pale 

Like the whiteness of her veil. 


Years may come, and years may go. 
Ere a mortal man shall know 
Such a more than mortal pain 
As the knight felt in his brain. 
Long he knelt beside the dead, 
Long he kissed her face and head. 


Long he clasped her pulseless palm. 
He in tempest, she in calm: 
Stricken by his anguish duml). 
Neither words nor tears would come; 
'Till at last with groan and shriek, 
Brokenlj' he thus did speak: 
O sweet body: turned to clay — 
Since thy soul has fled away, 
Let this lingering soul of mine 
Lift its wings and fly to thine: — 
Wed lis in Thy Heavens, O Lord! 
Rose he then and drew his sword, 
Braced his hilt against the wood 
Of the altar where he stood; 
Leaned his breast against its point, 
Stiffened every limb and joint. 
Clenched his hands about the blade; 
Muttered words as if he prayed, - 
Then, with one ecstatic breatli, 
Cast himself upon his death. 

Hence the tomb was made so wide 
Both could slumber side by side, 
But. though lovers fall to dust 
As their mortal bodies must, 
Still, to souls that interblend. 
Love itself can never end. 

Rupert, flying in defeat, 
Checked at Maltby his retreat; 
Through the chapel bullet pi^oof, 
Camped his men beneath the roof, 


Stood deliaut tor a day, 

Fiery as a stag at bay; 

Made a grim defense, bnt vain, -- 

Then in darkness and in rain. 

Fearful of the morrow's tight, 

Stole away at dead of night. 

When the Roundheads saw with rage 

How the birds had quit the cage, 

They, in spite, with blow on blow, 

Fought the chapel for a foe. 

80 it came that tower and bell "■ 

Roof and spire, together fell, — 

Battered down, in name of Heaven, 

April, sixteen tifty-seven. 

The above poem was cut out of a New York Inde- 
pendent, we believe, in 1867 or 68, by Miss Martha J. 
Maltby. Above the poem "Maltby Chapel," the 
following was written : ' 'The Sexton's Tale and Other 
Poems,'' being the first collected edition of the poems 
of Theodore Tilton, have been issued by Sheldon and 
Co., New York, in a beautiful volume on tinted paper 
with ornamental vignettes. A few of these poems 
were originally published in the Independent, a few 
others in the Atlantic Monthly ; three in separate 
holiday brochures; and the remainder make their 
first appearance in the present volume. Of the latter 
the following may be taken as a sample or specimen." 

It has been suggested that Maltby Chapel was in 
Roche Abbey — two miles south-east of the village of 
Maltby, but in stanza three, the line, "Up through 
Maltby's dusty road"' would suggest that the Maltby 
Chapel referred to, is the one. now restored, in Maltby.

A Visit to Maltby, West Riding, Yorkshire, 
England, Aug 14, 1901. 

By Miss Martha J. Maltby. 

When in York, in 1885, a gentleman remarked upon 
introduction, "There is a Parish in Yorkshire by 
your name." I was at once all attention, but suc- 
ceeded only in learning that it was an ordinary 
English hamlet which he had once visited, in the 
West Riding. 

In 1895 a chance meeting with an English Bishop 
brought the second bit of information, for he re- 
marked upon learning my name, "My first living was 
the imrish of Maltby and I remember it with pleas- 
ure." But our ways parted before I could learn 
much more, or more helpful knowledge as to how to 
tind the place for no guide book I have seen has it 
mentioned and I knew of no railway guide with its 
name on it. So when a fortunate chance found me 
in Durham and with the opportunity of questioning 
the learned archfeologist. Canon Greenwell, tlie 
President of the British Archaeology Society, and he 
too referred ;to the parish in connection with my 
name, then I learned what I had long wished to 
ascertain, i. e. how could Maltby be found? 

He had visited the hamlet on an archaeological 
excursion and remembered it had an old church tower 
and he gave the much desired information concerning 
the M-av. 


A few days later my friend and travelling com- 
panion and I broke our journey southward, at Dou- 
caster, took a train westward for a few miles, leaving 
it atCarrisboro for a seven mile drive southward from 
that station for Maltby. Let me note in passing that 
Carrisboro is known for its well preserved Norman 
tower of the castle which Sir Walter Scott makes the 
scene of the tournament in "Ivanhoe," which Re- 
becca reports to the Knight. The short wait for our 
trap and driver, gave us the opportunity to look at 
the tower. 

Unfortunately a drizzling rain set in as we started 
for Maltby which is situated up a valley from Carris- 
boro and the mist shut from sight some of what must 
have been a charming view in the heart of north 
English country, could we have seen it in the dis- 
tance. The road wound along between stone walls 
and English hedges and fertile farms, growing wheat, 
barley and turnips, and with pasturage for cattle and 
sheep, lay on both sides of the way. The farm houses 
had the appearance of comfortable pro.5perity and 
from their scattered positions we judged the farms 
were large in acreage. Two or three hamlets lay on 
the way and one had an ancient stone cross to 
testify of its age. 

The village school had just closed for the day as 
we drove through Maltby village to the cliurch whose 
spire w^e had seen in the distance. To our driver's 
(question of "where he should take us?" we had re- 
sponded, ''To the church, of course." 

Our trip had excited sufficient interest in the school 
children for some of them to follow us and gather 
about the two American women, who had left the

carriage and were admiring the oaken Lyncbgate, 
built in the ancient style and forming a beautiful 
entrance to the churchyard. They were as ready to 
answer questions as we to ask them. The sexton was 
mowing the church yard and we knew the church 
was open as we could hear the organ and we soon 
found our time of visit was auspicious for the organ- 
ist and some of the leading parishioneeis were in, the 
church and they too were willing to give information 
to the strangers. 

The church itself is only some fifty years of age 
and is neat and pleasing in appearance, but the tower 
onto which it is built, is very interesting ani well 
worth seeing. It shows some four stages in building 
. and must be very old. The lowest part is doubtless 
Saxon, having the heron-bone stone work about three 
feet from the ground. Bits of what look like Roman 
bricks are scattered along promiscuously in the stone 
wall. High up from the foundation are small win- 
dows. A large modern window has been placed in 
the western side of the tower. The walls are very 
thick and are strong and well built. 

The sexton told us that when removing the old 
church, they found its walls so firm that the work- 
men used powder to blow them up. The tower's 
first story is some thirty or forty feet in heighth. 
The second one is only some over a third as high, and 
has small, narrow windows on three sides. The third 
is different, and its double windows look like Norman 
work. This story ends with a pannelled battlement. 
A fourteenth century-looking stone spire has been 
built above this. I can give no authority for my 
opinion that this tower was some centuries in building

but judge this is true from illustrations in books on 
English architecture, 

I have often wished I might have seen Canon 
Green well again after the visit to Maltby for I am 
sure he would have refreshed his memory of his visit 
there and given me valuable information. 

The sexton opened the old chest in the vestry room 
to allow us to see the old records. The very oldest 
were written on parchment and were mildewed with 
age. I thought I coiild decipher ont; date as 1609 
but I am hot sure. 

We could not learn that anyone of the name of 
Maltby was resting in the churchyard, or lived in the 
parish, within the sexton's memory nor had he ever 
heard of the name in the records. On th-e last sub- 
ject he would hardly be authority. He showed us 
some very old carved stones, one of which issujiposed 
to have been the cross of the bishop who consecrated 
the first of the three churches to stand on the site of 
the present one. 

The headstones in the church yard did not look old 
and their dates were not such, while the names they 
bore were ordinary English names. 

We were told that in digging for the foundations 
of a new house in the south of the village, the work- 
men found graves and it was thought that the ground 
belonged to an ancient burial place. 

The old market-cross testifies to the age of the 
hamlet. It was surrounded by flower-beds and occu- 
pied a small plot of ground in the heart of the town. 

The houses of the village are simple and plain but 
comfortable with the cleanly air so common in Eng- 
land. The streets were narrow but clean. The whole 


town looked like a conservative old English place, as 
it is, with trees about its boundaries and in the lawns 
of the larger houses. 

Maltby Hall is an old place with some fine trees 
about it. We did not enter it as the hour was grow- 
ing late and we had a train to catch in Carrisboro for 
owY return and our journey on to Lincoln that night. 

Some weeks later, in the Library of the British 
Museum I found what 1 copied there and give with 
this for your information. 

It was nearly dark when we set down at the rail- 
way station and the hour was decidedly late when I 
finished writing in my diary and turned—a tired, 
happy woman to retire. I had seen Maltby iJarish. 
Whether there is any connection between it and the 
family name, who can tell us? 

Editor's note:— We feel greatly indebted to Miss 
Martha J. Maltby for her fascinating article on 
Maltby, and grateful for every bit of observation and 
study which she has given us in this interesting 
' sketch of her day at Maltby. The Genealogist would 
like to add one item concerning the last sentence 
Hugo de Malebisse (Latin of Maltby) held land in 
Ebor (Yorkshire) at the time of the Norman Con- 
(juest, and his lands are recorded in the Doomsday 
book. Many years ago the British Consul at Brus- 
sels, Belgium, was a Mr. Maltby. This Mr. Maltby 
took much interest in the Maltby famity and spent 
all his spare time in the British Museum looking up 
the family records. After years of such research he 
Sciid he was convinced that all the Maltbys descended 
from Hugo de Malebisse. from whom the village of 



Rnins of the Abbey of Roche, Founded 11-17, 
Two Miles S. E. of Maltby. 

Another Manor House Near Maltby. 


Maltby, Yorkshire, took its name. 

Whether we can all prove our ancestry back to this 
Hngo is quite another matter, but there can be little ■ 
doubt that the village of Maltby took its name from , 
Hugo de Maltby, and we believe we are correct im 
thinking Maltby is the land recorded in the Dooms- 
day Book. 

There are several villages in Great Britain named 
Maltby — five or six are in England, one or two are ini 
Ireland. So far as we can learn Maltby, Yorkshire, 
is the oldest of these, and evidently the English 
ancestry of the Maltbys begins here.

The following is copied from "Kelly Directory of! 
West Riding of Yorkshire. England, 1897," in the 
Library of the British Museum, by Miss Martha J. 

"Maltby Parish and Township in the Doucaster 
Division of Riding iu the Rotterham union and 
county court district and rural deanery, arch deanery 
of Sheffield and diocese of York. 

The church of St. Bartholomew is a plain building 
of stone in Gothic style and was rebuilt with the 
exception of the tower in 1859 on the site of the former' 
church. It consists of chancel, nave, aisles, south 
porch and western tower with spire containing three 

There are several memorial windows, lecturn, organ 
and lynchgate of carved oak and a lynch-stone which 
were given by Miss Crossley and Miss Mary Crossley 

MALTBi' 109 

in 1880. The lynchgate and stone were ,2;iven in 
memory of their mother. 

The register dates from 1678 (see foot note) and is 
in good condition. The living is a vicarage, average 
tithe rent charge 58 pounds, net yearly values 90 
pounds, including 30 acres of glebe with residence is 
the gift of the Earl of Scarborough. The poor estate 
produces 28 pounds yearly. In the village stands an 
ancient stone cross. 

Two miles S. E, are the ruins of the once magnifi- 
cent Abbey of Roche or de Ruije, founded in 1147 by. 
- Richard de Busti and Richard Fitz-Turgis for monks 
of Cistercian order, and dedicated to the blessed Vir- 
gin Mary. A natural iDhenomenon heightened by art 
probably induced the monks to settle in this rocky 
limestone valley. A fracture in the rocks bearing 
some resemblance to Our Savior on the cross was 
^ held in great reverence during the whole period of 
"the existence of the abbey. Henry Crandall the 2Sth 
and last abbot surrendered the abbey with 17 monks 
and a yearly revenue 271 pounds-, 11 e hillings and 
four pence to Dugdale. Henry VIII granted to Wm. 
Ramesden and Thomas Valasor the ruin of the once 
■extensive and sj^lendid abbey. 

The Earl of Scarborough has made some excava- 
tions in the ruins. 

Sandbeck Park 2^ miles S. E. of the village is the 
seat of the Earl of Scarborough, Lord. Lieut, of the 
Riding, and Lord of the Manor and principal land- 
owner. The mansion is a s^Dacious edifice erected 
about the middle of the last century and a fairly 
timbered park of 350 acres, surrounded by extensive 
woods well stocked with deer. Attached to the Hall 


is a private chapel where services are conducted by 
the Earl's private chaplain. 

The soil is limestone, some parts clay and loam. 
The subsoil limestone. Chief crops are wheat, barley 
and turnips, with some pasture. 

Area of township 4096 acres. Rentable value, 4 
pounds, 10 shillings and 2 pence. Population in 
1891 was 709 and in the parish 766. 

People of some importance: Earl of Scarborough, 
Sandbeck Park and Army and Navy and Carleton 
Clubs, London, S. W. Miss White of Maltby Hall. 
Miss Mary Elizabeth White. Ladies' Boarding School, 
Maltby Hall." 

INote I. — Maltby is situated od the edge of the famous Sher- 
vvood forest. 

Note II.— The station for Maltby for those going north is 
Rotherham, which is a little northeast of Sheffield. It is a 
seven mile drive from Rotherham to Maltby. 

Note III. —There was not time to procure a photograph oft 
the Norman town of Carrisboro, but we trust Booklet No. 3 
will contain this view. 


Note IV. — Prom a list of Yorkshire parish registers we 
quote the following: 
Records begin — 
Maltby— 1597. 
Muston- 1.542. 
Doucaster — 1557. 
Rotherham— 155t\ (Published.) 
Note V. — The Secretary has some four or live dozen different 
views of Maltby, and will gladly furnish the addresses of 
English tirms where these photographs can be procured. 

The following English pedigree we give as it con- 
tains some interesting data: 


1. — Hugo de MalebiBse held lands at the time of the Norman 
Conquest. lie had three sons, Richard, Hugo and Guilford. 
Guilford was interred in Beverly Abbey, Co. Lincoln in 1172. 

2. — Hugo de Malebisse mar. Emma de Percy, dau. and heir, 
of Henry de Percy of Acaster. He had Hugo, kichard, Will- 
iam, Simon and Matilda. Hugo mar. Beatrix, Lady of 
Manor of Wylses. Co. Cambridge. I' ounded Priory of Spin- 
ney, time of Henry II L -William held lands in Cleveland, 
built Chapel at Ayton where he was Lord of the Manor before 
1200.— Simon, Lord of Cowton in Craven; he had a son Sir 
Hercules who changed his name to B^ckwith on his marriage 
in 1226 with Lady Dame Beckwith Bruce. He was a 
descendant of Sir Hercules, Harmon Beckwith, who in 1339 
had a dispute with Hugh Maltby over the right to use the 
Maltby coat-of arms. 

3. — Richard, founded Newbo Abbey, Lincolnshire. 1198, 
Acaster, near York, died 1209, Justican. Forester for York- 
shire. He had Emma, John. Robertus. 

4.— John, 1213. 

5. — William, Byland Abbey, 1247, mar. Matilda, dau. of 
and co-heir of Ralph Neville. 

6. — William, lord lo Priory of Bridlington, 1267. 
7.— Richard, iVHIes, 1311— Acaster— Malebis (de Eya.) 

8.— John Lord Ul-y- Miles. Viscounes Ebor: High Sheriff 
Co. York, 1314, d. 1316. 

9.— William, Miles, 1339, 

10.— Walter, on going to the Holy Lands, mortgaged Scalton 
to William Fairfax. 

The above pedigree ends here, as the male line 
evidently died out. The pedigree shows that the 
Maltbys were a prominent family and t he intermar- 
riages were with some of the oldest and best families. 
It will be observed that they founded several abbeys 
and priories. An English clergyman told the writer 
that the sheaf of wheat in the Maltby coat-of-arms 
showed that the family had been large holders of 
church lands. 


Thinking that somf^ of our genealo^icnl problems 
might be answered by members if they knew of them, 
we are inserting a few "Queriei:." and trust that we 
may receive replies to them 


Genealogical Queries. 

Can any member furnish any data irhich would aid the 
genealogist to -place the ancestry of one William Maltby, 
)orn about 1819 in the vicinity of Rochester? 

The above William Maltby left home o*ving to what 
le considered unmerited punishment, and never 
spoke of his family, so we have not slight clues to 
lelp us. William Maltby was 6 feet, 2 inches tall, 
lad dark brown hair and red mustache; was finely 
Klucated, and often spoke of Rochester. N. Y. He 
dso mentioned being in Cincinnati one time and see- 
ng relatives in a store, but as they did not recognize 
lim he did not )nake himself known. We know he 
lad a sister Mary, for when his oldest daughter was 
3orn he wished her named Mary for a dear sister. 
Eis other children were named Clayton, George, 
Ellen and Anna. Tliis might furnish some clue as to 
lis family. 

About 1840 Mr. Maltby settled in Madison. Ind., 
11 the mercantile business. As a young man he 
;aught school. He attended the Presbyterian church 
md was a great Abolitionist. He married in 1850, 
md died in 1861. 

Any date which might aid us in tracing the ances- 
try of this William Maltby would be gratefully 
received by the genealogist.

We wish to call the attention of Jonathan's (2) 
descendants to an item in the Maltby (renealogy 
which was furnished by some descendants of Jona- 
than (2), to be found on page 84 of the "Maltby 
Genealogy" published in 1895 by Mrs. George Ells- 
worth Maltby. We think there must be a mistake 
here. Note the two Davids — David (3), born 1727-iS, 
and then David (3) l)orn 1748. 

As David (8). son of Jonathan (2) married Harah 
Holly in 1749. he must be the David (3) born in 
1727-8. Consequently David born 1748 would hardly 
be a brother. Should he not be David (4) son of 
David (3) and S;irah Holly. Can anyone solve this 
problem V

In February, 190B, a few M^iltby descendants 
started n Maltby Asfeoeiation. As yet we h<ave not 
not secured .a President; the one to whom this w^s 
•oif'ered said that while he fully appreciitted the 
honor, pre*s of other matters compelled him todecline 
ithe ofEer. 

The first vice presidency wa^ accepted by Mr. W. 
H., Maltbie, Professor of Math-ematic.s at the 
Woman's College of Baltimore, Marj^land. and that 
■of second vice president by Mrs.. John P. Victory, 
of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Mrs. James Willey Todd, 
of New Havea was appoint-ed treasurer, and the 
•otfices of secretary and genealogist were given to 
Miss Dorothy Lord Maltby, now Mrs. Clarence 

The secretary reoeiv^l niany enthusiastic replies 
and promises of membersliip, but owing probably to 
various causes, dues were nut always remitted, so 
t,hat at pre.ent our paying memberchip numbers 
fortv. A list of these members, their addresses,, 
dates of joining, and lines of descent, is enclosed. 

As each niemlier paid One Dollar., it will be seen 
that we received Forty Dollars (S40.00); out of this 
we have had to pay for stamps and stationery in 
.sending out circulars to -descendants, etc., Five and 
20-100 Dollars ($5.20), which leaves a balance on 
hand of Thirty-four and 80-100 Dollars ,($84.80), as 
per the treasurer's report given below: 


Received in dues . . $40.00 

Expenses 5. 20 

Balance $34.80 

The account is kept with the Second National 
Bank of New Haven, Conn., and we trust that it will 
soon increase to a large amount. 

At present we have not enough to employ a good 
and reliable genealogist to work on connecting the 
American and English lines. However, the 
association's genealogist has placed several queries 
in prominent historical magazines in England, 
offering a reward of a small sum ($10.00) for 
information concerning the parentage of our 
emigrant ancestor, William Maltby. born in 1645. 
A notification of the Maltby Association was placed 
in the "New England Historical and Genealogical 
Register" and in the "Boston Transcript" with 
requests for genealogical data from any Maltby 

The tombstones in the Brandford cemetery do not 
as yet require repairing. The stone of William 
Maltby is the second oldest in this burial ground, 
having been placed there in 1710. It is a handsome 
stone for those dajs. 

It has occurred to us that possibly some of the 
descendants might wish photographs of some of 
these stones. Besides that of William Maltby, there 
is one of his second wife, Abigail Bishop; of 
William's son, Daniel (who married Esther Moss), 
and that, I think, of Captain Samuel and his wife, 
Elizabeth Barker. Mr. George E. Meigs, of New 
Haven, Conn., takes excellent photographs of tomb- 
stones, old homesteads, family heirlooms, etc., and at 
very reasonable rates. His price, we believe, is 25 
cents for the plate, and 10 cents for each negative 




— so after the plate is secured copies can be had for 
LO cents, or a trifle more, to pay for his expenses to 
md from Branford. 

The genealogical work has met in most cases with 
prompt and willing response, and yet there is much 
lata descendants could send in, and to make the 
¥ork anything like complete we need the family data 
io far as is known, of each descendant. 

Requests are frequently received for copies of 
^'^illiam Maltby's will, for the inventory of his estate, 
'or copies of long English pedigrees, etc. Descend- 
mts can procure these by paying the cost of having 
hem copied. 

This Association does not pretend to be a business 
proposition, in any way. It's purpose is to keep the 
'amily together in a friendly way; to promote a 
•eeling of kin-ship, and to keep the memory of our 
Maltby ancestors fresh in our minds. 

We need the interest an 1 help of every descendant 
md should be glad of any sug;^estions from members 
[or improving the Association. 

Owing to various causes the secretary has not been 
able to notify many descendants, of this Association, 
=ind indeed it is hard to ascertain the names of those 
tiaving Maltby blood. It would be a great help if 
Bach member could interest even one other descen- 
dant in the Association, or if they would send names 
and addresses of kinsmen, to the secretary. 

We hope for the continued help and interest of our 
present members, and that the year 1907 will enroll 
many new names upon our tablets.

Tombstone of Our Emie;rant Ancestor, Branford 

Cemetery — An Hour by Trolley-Ride 

Out of New Haven, Conn. 



The year ending January thirty-first, nineteen 
hundred and eight, has been a busy and very success- 
ful one in so far as the Maltby Association is con- 

Shortly after our first annual report was issued the 
Association was fortunate in securing for President, 
Mr. George E. Maltby of Philadelphia, Pa. 

It seemed particularly fitting for Mr. Maltby to 
occupy the position, inasmuch as his grandfather, 
the Rev. Jonathan Maltby (4) was the first one of 
the family, so far as we know, to take an interest in 
the family genealogy. It is largely through old 
letters and papers left by the Rev. Jonathan Maltby 
that we have been able to prove the descent of various 
Maltby s. 

Quite a few new names will be foun 1 upon the roll 
of membership, which is gratifying, as new members 
are what we most need. The members have taken 
much interest iu the work of the As 5ociati :)n this year 
and we wish to thank those who have aided us in any 

During the year it was discovered that thern are in 
the United States descendants of two other William 
Maltbys— contemporary, or nearly so, with our 
emigrant ancestor William (1 ) who was born in 1645. 

One branch is represented by Mrs. Edwin M. Blake 
(a member of tlie Association) who is descended from 
William Maltby, born in 1641; who married Jane, 
daughter of George Brough, of Shelton, Nottingham, 
England. Oct. 81st. 1682. He died Nov. 1st. 1718, 


at Orstoii, Notts., Eug. We note the similarity in 
the names of their children with those of William (1) 
of Branford, Conn., namely: William, Mary, George, 
Ann, Thomas, John, Charles, Elizabeth. 

From William and Jane Brough Maltby descended 
Edward Maltby, born April 6, 1770; Bishop of Chi- 
cester, 1881, the last of the Prince Bishops of Durham, 
183f), and we learn on good authority, that he was 
offered the Archbishopric of Canterbury. Edward 
Maltby, upon applying in 1829 to the Herald's 
College for a grant of arms states that his family 
came from Nottinghamshire and before that from 
Yorkshire. A colored copy of the arms granted him 
is given in the "Miscellaner, Gen. and Heral, II 
Series 1884 and 1885," which is as follows: "Argent 
on a bend gules between a lion rampant and a cross 
pattee, of the second three garbs or.'' This is the 
arms of the Yorkshire Maltbys, excepting for the 
cross and lion which have evidently been introduced 
for a difference. 

The other branch of the family we referred to, 
descends from William Maltby Jr. and his wife Mary 
Rhodes, who were early converts to Quakerism and 
emigrated to America in 1698. They were from 
Orston, Nottinghamshire, England. 

At present we have no members representing this 
house, but it is hoped that as time advances both the 
above houses may be well represented, in England as 
well as the States, for we are all working for the 
same object, namely, to establish our English ances- 
try back to the time of William the Conqueror. 

We wish descendants of these two houses to know 
that any dues paid in by them will be used only for 



research work in England on their own lines. Should 
enough of these descendants care to join us in our 
work it would seem advisable for them to appoint 
their own secretaries and treasurers. 

We hope that ultimately we may be one big family, 
the tie that binds us together the strong bond of 

Some English work has been done this year through 
the courtesy of a friend, a professional genealogist, 
wl:o offered his services, and would only accept pay- 
ment for traveling expenses. 

It was thought advisable to prove definitely, 
w^hether or not we descend from the Mawbeys of 
Norfolk (later of Surrey and Leicester) whose 
pedigree appears later in this report. Various 
people have written the secretary that the name 
Mawbey had nothing in common with Maltby; 
on the other hand well known etymologists have 
said it was the same. We quote our authority for 
thinking the latter may be correct: "The 
Baronetage of England or the History of the 
English Baronets and such Baronets of Scotland as 
are of English families" by the Rev. William 
Betham. "Vol III, p. 322, 282, Mawbey of 
Botleys, Surrey, Created Baronet June 30, 1765. 
Name - Maw^tebey, Maultby- Mauteby- Mawbie- 
Mawby- Mawbey. Family took their name from the 
village of Mawtby in Co. Norfolk.' 

Reasons which we can not explain at length 
seemed to make it expedient to ascertain if we 
descend from the above house. At the present 
writing the data from England has not been received.. 

Through the ' 'International Geological Directory" 


recently published much valuable information, with 
suggestions as to future research in England have 
been received, and altogether the lookout is brighter j 
towards making the desired connection than at any ■ 
previous time. I 

The wotk on the Genealogy progresses as rapidly i 
as possible considering the difficulty in obtaining j 
records. We can not urge the members too strongly j 
to send in their own family records down to the last i 
descendants. Many have not done this, and it j 
would be a pity to have their lines incomplete when 
the genealogy is published. 

An interesting discovery has recently been made, 
namely: that William Maltby (1) had nine children 
instead of eight, as was supposed. For this infor- 
mation we are indebted to an old letter written by 
Kev. Jonathan Maltby, dated "April 21, 1848" in 
which he writes: "If Long Life is a Blessing, my 
Ancestors, Parents and Contemporaries, have been 
favored. Martha Maltby, my Father's (Benjamin's) 
(B) Aunt was twice married. Mr. Stent of Branford 
and Deacon Peck of Wallingford. At her funeral the 
bell tolled 100 as I heard in my boyhood. My great 
aunt lacked a month or two of a 100 years." Hence 
his great aunt was William Maltby' s (1) daughter. 


For an interesting account of New Haven and Yale 
at the time of th6 Revolution, we are indebted to the 
Rev. Jonathan Maltby (4). We print a copy of it, 
knowing it will be of great interest to many. The 
part the Rev. Jonathan (4) took in events of those 
times, makes his descendants eligible to all Patriotic 
Revolutionary Societies. 



Maltby Place, April 21, 1848. 
BiRTH-day, of my 90th year. 

At war with sin, heart from the world full-riven, 
aged and weary, the soul longs for heaven. 
With one or two exceptions, I have out-lived all 

my contemporaries, 
relatives and friends.

More than three 
score years ago— three Brothers, in good health, were

days that "tried men's s^mlt^" — in time of the 
Kevohitioii. A war spirit prevailed in all the old 13 
— Patriotism, warmed the hearts of the free born 
sons of Yale. Fired with the news of the death of 
their conntrymen at Lexington, 100 of her sons 
marshaled for fight, rnsh to Boston and I see an old 
gentleman point his cane and hear him say: 'What 
do you think Gage (Gen. Gage) will say when he 
knows that a hundred men from Yale College are 
come to tight liimV' 

The upper classes, in the interval of studies, are 
on the lower green (Note 8), with their music, 
practicing, marching, maneuvering, * '■^ * Soon 
after my acquaintance with almn mater, Col. Ira 
Allen from Vermont, brought the good news of the 
capture of the fort of 8t. John's — a thrill of joy 
pervades the city and the college. Camion are 
ordered out, 18 thunders, one for each state, tell the 
heartfelt joy. At the last fire, the Col., soldier-like, 
leaped on the cannon —swung his hat and cried 
aloud, 'God, save the Continental Congress! Three 
Cheers!' Oh they were given to the life! 

The war occupied too much of the student mind. 
And such was the exposed state of college, while at 
N. Haven, that it was dispersed into several towns in 
interior of the state for two or three years, to the 
great disadvantage, of the students. Classes -(1776- 
1777- '78-'79) had no public commencement. 

In the summer time of '78 College returned, 
President Stiles was inducted into ofiice and took 
charge of the seminary. July, 1779, Tryan and 
Traitor Arnold with three or four thousand British 
troops enter N. H. Night before at 9 o'clock an 


arm was fired, again at 1, which put the town in the 
most consternation. That night and next day 
diibiting such excruciating distress among the 
omen and children as I hope and pray I may never 
!;ain witness, 

The students request the Selectmen of the town to 
ruish them with arms to meet the enemy — but are 
:)t able. 8 of my class obtain arms and go out with 
apt. Hillhouse and the Guards. David Austin and 
lizur Goodrich are wounded, Austin brings in a 
■itoner. After Rev. d. D. Austin. Hon. Elizur 
oodrich w^as a captive and Dr. Nesbitt pronounces

Ley cross next morning to East Haven. While in

erchants goods and groceries, and do all the 
miage that they could well do. The distress they 
ade I will not attempt to describe. On Tuesday I 
as one of a reconnoitering party on Ea:t Haven 
eights where balls were whistling constantly, but 
D "music for me.'' A cannon ball took off all upper 
irt of a Mr. Pardee's head and several were 
ounded. We have the pleasure to witness this 16th 
Aug. that the wound of the Hon'l Elizur Goodrich 
as not mortal — with heartfelt joy we behold him one 
the happy- alumni." (Here follows a short genea- 
gical sketch to which we previously referred.)

Tiie As80ciatioii would Le very glad if (U'sceudnnts 
Avould send copies of interesting letters or documents 
XJertaining to the family to the Secretary. We also 
desire inscriptions from old Maltby tombstones, 
l^hotographs of individuals, homesteads, relics and 
heirlooms — anything which would make the Maltby 
genealogy more complete and attractive. 

We also hope to make our annual reports as inter- 
esting as possible to members. This year we were 
able to get out what we believe will be found by all 
Maltby s a most interesting booklet. "- 

We wish to call the members attention to the fact 
that five generations are represented in the Associa- 
tion. They are the sixth, seventh, eighth, lunth and 
tenth. We think we are correct in stating that our 
oldest member is eighty years of age, and our young- 
est five months old. Master Daniel Deveral Perry is, 
however, the only member of tlie tenth generation. 
We know of no descendant of the fifth generation 
who is still living, we do not believe that any of 
the eleventh are in existence. 

The names of Fome former members will be missed 
from the present roll. It is with the deepest regret 
that we have to record the death of Mrs. Justin W. 
Meacham, Elizabeth A. Morehouse (6)— No. 34 on 
our previous list of members — at her home in Mil- 
waukee September 12th, 1907, aged (54 years. 

Mr. Douglass F. Maltby, Yale Ex. 44, died at his 
home in Waterbury,Co]in., May l(5th, 1907. He was 
born in Northford, Conn., May 7th, 1820. Reenter- 
ed Yale College in 1840, but on account of ill health 
was compelled to give up his studies at the end of 
Sophomore year. In 1851 Mr. Maltby became presi- 
dent of the Maltby, Morton & Company " button man- 
ufacturers of Waterbury. In 1878 he began business 



under the firm name of Maltby, Curtiss and Company 
of New York City. In 1886 the tirm changed its 
name to Maltby, Henley and Company. For a num- 
ber of years he was president of the Maltby, Curtiss 
and Stephens Company, a joint stock company en- 
gaged in the manufacture of silverware in Walling- 
ford, Conn. 

Mr. Maltby is survived by his widow and four 
children, to whom the Association tenders it sincere 

The news of the death of Mrs. Richard Long [Emma 
Jessie Maltby (8), No. 12 on our last years member- 
ship], daughter of Mr. George W. Maltby (7) of 
Buffalo, reached us too late to be inserted in our 
previous report. It is with the greatest regret that 
we have to record the death of Mrs. Long, which 
occurred on Jan. 3, 1906. The Association wishes to 
tender its sincere sympathy to the bereaved family. 

Since the report was commenced we have received 
word of the death of our oldest member, Mr. Oliver 
Ellsworth Maltby, No. 39 on our present list. 

Mr. Maltby was born in August, 1827, and he died 
after a very short illness, in October, 1907, at a little 
over eighty years of age. He was the oldest child of 
Lucius (5) and Sarah Parks Maltby and a grandson 
of Kev. Jonathan Maltby (4), whose picture and in- 
teresting letter appear in this report. Mr. Maltby 
was one of the original members of the Maltby Asso- 
ciation and his death will be felt by a large circle of 

Recently the question has arisen as to whether 
upon the decease of members, the relicts husband or 
wife could represent them in the Association. Not 
being of Maltbv blood they would not be eligible. 


and yet it seemed hardly right to debar such persons 
from keeping up an interest in the family. It was 
thought that an honorary membership list would 
settle this difficulty. In this way the husband or 
wife of a deceased Maltby could join by paying the 
regular dues but their names would be on the Hon- 
orary list, stating that they represented the deceased 
wife or husband, as the case might be. 

Our expenses for the year, Feb. 1, 1907, to Feb. 1, 
1908, and present financial condition is shown by the 
report of the treasurer, as given below. One member 
paid dues for two years, and one or two members 
have furnished valuable work for which we could not 
afford to pay, taking only the slightest return we 
could make of cancelling dues for one or two years.

The secretary especially requests that members 
will send in corrections or additions to the report 
and membership list. Much time is given to make 
the list absolutely correct, but there are necessarily 
mistakes, if only those which occur in copying, type- 
writing, and so forth. These we regret, but they 
seem to be unavoidable. The secretary would also 
like to be notified of all Maltbys who served in any 
wars, such as the Revolution, Mexican, Indian, war 
of 1812 or Civil war. 

It will be remembered that one object of the 
Association was to hold a family reunion once in 
every five or six years. Many descendants are 
anxious to hold such a reunion, but there are difficul- 
ties — distance being the greatest. A suggestion that 
the first reunion be held at Branford, (Jonn., on 
Sept. 1st, 1910, (two hundred years from the date of 
William Maltby's death —see copy of his tombstone 
in the report) seems a good one, but to accomplish 
this we shall need the co-operation of all the members. 
Letters of suggestion on this subject would be very 
welcome. Descendants who could not be present at 
Branford might be able to hold small reunions on 
this date in various parts of the States. 

The Association thanks the members for their help 
and interest and trusts that during the new year we 
are commencing, we may keep them all with us.

"Maltby-Morehouse Family"— compiled by Mrs. 
Greorge Ellsworth Maltby— printed by Tuttle, More- 
house and Taylor, New Haven, Conn., 1895, 157 pp., 
contains a copy of the deed of William Maltby, 
signed by Robert Maltbye in 1678; various items of 
interest concerning the Maltbys, copy of William 
Maltby's Will. 1710, etc. Also a Maltby Genealogy 
compiled by Deacon Charles Foote — the only geneal- 
ogy of the early Maltby family in print, so far as is 
known. This is followed by sixty pedigrees^ traced 
back to emigrant ancestors; some few being traced^ 
back in England. For example descendants of Ben- 
jamin (B). Daniel (2), William (1) would find the 
following ancestral line^ in the book: Baldwin, 
Eng., 1552; Bartlett, Dept. (rov. George, 1641; Crit- 
tenden, Abraham, 1639; Ford, Thomas, 1630; Fowler, 
William, 1637; Hubbard, Deac. George, b. 1595; 
Lathrop, Rev. John. b. 1584: Moss, John, 1645; 
Scudder, John, about 1640, an 1 of course Maltby, 
William, b. 1645. 

The price of the above genealogy is $3.00 bound in 
cloth ; postage extra. Address the compiler, Mrs. 
George Ellsworth Maltby, New Haven, Conn. 


Miss Ella K. Barnard of 1750 Park Ave., Baltimore, 
Mtl., has recently published a genealogy of the Lang- 
harne and Maulsby families. The Maulsby genealo- 
gy deals with the Quaker branch of the family — 
William Maltby and Mary Rhodes being the 
progenitors of this branch. 

A partial table of the contents of the Maltby 
Genealogy follows: 

The name Maltby in England, its origin and 

Records relating to Maltby and Molzbi in the 
Doomsday Book. 

The pedigree of Maltby, of Maltby and ^^luston. 
dating back to the Norman Conquest. 

Yorkshire Inquisitions— List of Freemen of York 
—List of Maltby Wills— Parish Records from Nott- 
iiighamshire, etc., etc. 

The price of the above book, we believe, is 15.00, 
and can be obtained from the author, whose address 
is given above. 

Mr. Maximilian Foster, a descendant of Gen. Isaac 
Maltby (4), is writing very interesting articles and 
short stories for well known periodicals. 

"Everybody's" for January contained an article on 
flying machines by Mr. Foster. The writer was not 
fortunate enough to see this article, and consequently 
can a:ive no review of it. 


During the year we had the pleasure of receiving a 
patriotic hymn, the words and the music both being 
the work of Mr. Alfred Maltbie Lynes, No. 85 on our 
list of members. Copies of this hymn cau be pro- 
cured, we believe, for fifteen cents. 

Rev. Clark O. Maltby, No. 50 on our membership 
roll, is the author of a collection of hymns, which 
have been set to music and printed in book form. 

Mr. Jay Hayes Maltby, who so generously prints 
our Booklets, is the editor of "The Forman News,'' 
Forman, North Dakota. Many of our members are 
already familiar with this interesting and enterprising 

Mr. Frederic Cook Morehouse, No. 89, is the editor 
of the well known Church periodical, ' 'The Young 
Churchman." A photograph of Mr. Morehouse 
ai^peared in a recent issue of the "Literary Digest."
