The following pages are the printed records and results of 
years of painstaking and conscientious work on the part of the 
author and genealogist, ]\Irs. Clarence E. Verrill. (See portrait on 
page 149.) 

Few of the readers will appreciate the enormous amount of 
work required in compiling such information. It is probable that 
each entry of a line of descent has required at least one personal 
letter and often many more. The answers to these letters have re- 
quired checking, further correspondence and final compilation to 
bring all into the completed and correct tabulation. 

All this work has been done by Airs. X'errill without hope of 
compensation and at great expense of time, money and \ital energy. 
In fact, a great deal of this work has been done on a sick bed in order 
to make the publication of the book possible at tliis time. 

Too much credit cannot be given to Mrs. \>rrill 1j\ the mem- 
bers of the ]\Ialtby family and readers of this book for her untiring" 
efiforts to bring to a successful completion the records contained 
herein and. 

In behalf of the Maltb\- family the undersigned wishes to ex- 
press to Mrs. A'errill his heart-felt a]:>preciation of these years of 
labor which, though it has been a labor of love, has been none the 
less arduous. 

\\> also wish to express our appreciation of the generosity and 
kindness of Mr. T). L. Maltbie, who undertakes the publication of 
this volume at his own expense and without the hope of ever re- 
ceiving more than a partial reimbursement of the cost to him. 

He has made available the results of the long years of ]\Irs. 
A'errill's labor. 

Our best wishes and many thanks to both of them.

It was not the intention of the compiler to write a preface to 
this book, but upon goin": over the proof sheets those things 1 have 
(lone, and those left undone, seem very patent. But 'Svhat is writ 
is writ, would that it were worthier." 

The records here given to the public are the result of many 
years of genealogical research work and many of the records are 
mere fragments which refused to fit in gracefully in any place, but 
have been included with the hope that they may sometime prove 
helpful in tracing ancestors. 

This work has been carried on far from reference libraries and 
ruder adverse conditions, but I have endeavored to give the refer- 
ence to the source from which every record was taken. There are 
undoubtedly mistakes, but every effort has been made to keep these 
down to as few as possible, and it is to be hoped that where errors 
are discovered it will be called to my attention. 

I am indebted to many people for data furnished and wherever 
possible I have tried to give credit where it was due for material 
copied from other publications or kindly contributed by individuals 
— to all of these T am heartily grateful. 

It is the sincere wish of the compiler that the records contained 
in these pages may prove interesting to those who descend from the 
^laltbys and also helpful to any who seek further information of 
their ancestors.

During years of genealogical research various references to 
Maltby Arms have been found, copied and preserved until quite an 
interesting little collection has been made. 

Heraldry is a science in itself, and requires an expert to give 
accurate explanations, and this article is written by one at the very 
bottom of the Heraldic ladder, but a word as to the early use of 
Arms will help toward understanding some of the material which 

Rulls uf arms are extant in England in the reigns of Henry HI. 
[1216-1272] ; Edward I. [1272-1307], and Edward H. [1307-1327]. 

The Roll of Caerlaverock contains the names and armorial 
bearings of the knights and barons who attended Edward I. at the 
siege of the Castle of Caerlaverock, Dumfriesshire, in 1300. and 
exhibits heraldry already in a developed form. 

The use of arms by private persons was prohibited by proclama- 
tion in the reign of Henry \'. All persons who had not borne arms 
at Agincourt were prohibited from assuming them unless by heredi- 
tary descent or with the sanction of the constituted authorities. 
Periodical circuits, called visitations, were held afterward by the 
provincial heralds to take cognizance of the arms, pedi^^rees and 
marriages of such as were entitled to the use of armorial bearings. 
These visitations continued till about the end of the 17th century. 
The evidence of these records are much sought to establish heredi- 
tary ricrht to bear arms. Tt will be noticed that manv of the arms 
here described are from various visitations. 

The earliest Maltby coat-of-arms, so far as has yet been ascer- 
tained is that of Sire John ]\Ialebis in 1097. The extract is taken 
from "The Genealogist," Xew Series, 1896. p. 281. The Parliamen- 
tary Roll of Arms : 

T097. SIRE TOHX :\IALEBIS— de argent a iij testes de bis 
de goul (Vide Yorkshire Parish Reg. Vol I and H). A rough 
translation of the above I make : ''argent, three heads of hinds 
gules." The above seems to have been a near relative of Hugo de 
]\Ialebisse, see Pedigree Xo. I. 

The next mention of ]\Ialtby arms seems to be in 133Q. In the 
Encyclopedia Britannica, A'ol. XI, pp- 686-7 ^^'i^^ ^^ found the fol- 


lowincr: "As the combinations out of wliich the early coats were 
formed were hmitecl ; it occasionally happened that two persons of 
the same nation bore the same arms and this gave rise to disputes 
which, as matters connected with military discipline, came under the 
jurisdiction of the earl marshall . . . cases . . . were decided 
between Harding and St. Loo in 1312; Warburton and Gorges in 
1321, and Sytsylt and Falsenham in 1333. Hugh ]\Ialtby and Har- 
mon Beckwith had a similar dispute in 1339.'' Another item refer- 
ring to the same case appears in The Genealogist, in an article "The 
Right to Bear Arms" by "X," as follows : "The Court of Chivalry 
(Curia Alilitaris) sat in 1339 to enquire into a mandate dated 18 
Jan., 1339, against Harmon Beckwith by Hugh Lord ]\Ialtby, who 
alleged that Beckwith had assumed his arms. Beckwith proved his 
right to the satisfaction of the court 14 Oct., 1339." (See Pedigree 
Xo. I for Hugh Alaltby and Harmon Beckwith). 

It was not, however, chance that caused Harmon Beckwith to 
adopt the ]\Ialtby arms. His great grandfather was Sir Hercules 
Malebisse (Latin form of ]\Ialtby) who changed his name to Beck- 
with on his marriage in 1226 with Lady Dame Beckwith Bruce. 
Their son. Sir Hercules Beckwith, had a son Xicholas, and it was 
Harmon, the son of this X^icholas who had the dispute with Hugh 
]\laltby. If one will consult Pedigree Xo. I it will be seen that 
A\'il]iam (g) de ]\Ialebisse, 1339, died in 13(^)5, and here, with his 
son, Sir Tliomas Tio), this line died out. This does not mean that 
the family died out ; simply the failure of male issue of the oldest 
son. It is verv probable, indeed practically certain, that the above 
Hugh ^laltby was nearly related to \Mlliam (9), probably his uncle. 
It is rather an odd coincidence that Elizabeth (it) ^Faltby, daughter 
and co-heiress of Sir Thomas (10) ]\raltby married for her second 
husband, Adam Beckwith of Clint, a great-grandson of Harmon 
Beckwith. who had the dispute concerning the ^^laltby arms. It 
must be borne in mind in the following pages that the Beckwiths 
are by birth Afaltbys and the Beckwith blood is through a maternal 

Burke's Gen. Armory and Rietstaps Ar. Gen. give: Beckwith. Arms of; 
Arg. a chev. betw. 3 hinds heads erased gules. Crest: An antelope ppr. in 
the mouth a branch vert, blotto : Joie en bien." * 

Burke also gives: Malbech. Malbesh, ]\Ialbish, (Latin form of Maltby) 
Gu. a chev. or., between 3 liinds heads erased or. Compare these arms with 
the above Beckwith arms. 

* Note the similarity with the arms of Sire John Malebis in 1097^ It 
is very probable that he was an older brother of Hugo (1), Pedigree Xo. I. 
and failing male issue his coat of arms was used by the descendants of 
Hugo (1). 


Another item from Burke's Gen. Arm is : Malbys : Ar. a chevron between 
3 hinds heads erased gules. 

Glover's Visitation of Yorkshire, 1612, edited by Joseph Foster, gives: 
Beckwith : Arg. a chev between 3 hinds heads. 

By consulting Pedigree Xo. I it will be seen that ^largaret 
Maltby (g) sister of William de ]\Ialebisse, married Thomas Fairfax. 
This will explain the following records : 

FAIRFAX (p. 39, Glover's Mst. of Yorks., 1612, edited by 
Joseph Foster) of Walton and Gilling; one quartering is given as 
Arg. a chev. between 3 foxes' heads erased gules, for ]\Ialbys. 

FAIRFAX (p. 96). The same, of Denton, Strelton and Street- 

FAIRFAX (p. 24). In the church of Bolton Percy'^ you 
find the arms of Fairfax : Arg. a chev. sa. between 3 hinds' heads, 
erased gules (sa.)'^ Also: Arg. a chev. between 3 hinds' heads 
erased gules for ^lalbys. 

Note. — Probably this is an error as to the foxes' heads being quartered, 
as the arms of Malbys. Evidently the arms of Malbys were hinds' heads, 
which Beckwith adopted and which the Fairfaxes also used after the marriage 
with Margaret Maltby. The arms of Fairfax as given by Burke's Gen. 
Armory are : Arg. 3 bars genelles gules, surmounted by a lion rampant, sab. 

Burke's Gen. Arm. gives : Malbys as, Arg. a chev. betw. 3 hinds' heads, 
erased gules. 

Burke's Gen. Arm. gives : Malbys : Gules a chev. betw. 3 hinds" heads, 
erased arg., for Malbech, Malbesh, Malbish. 

Alaltby and ^lokbi, Malbie, Malbysse. Vide Doomsday Book. Burke's 
Gen. Arm. states : "The Beckwith family of Yorkshire is a ver}- ancient one, 
which originally bore the name of Malbie or Malbysse. derived from Nicholas 
Beckwith. son of Hercules de Malbie. by Beckwith, his wife, one of the 
daughters of Sir William Bruce, Lord of Uglebarby ; Sir Roger Beckwith 
of Aldborough created a baronet, 1681 ; title extinct in 1741." 

Robson's British Herald, pub. 1830, Vol. 2. gives : ]\Ialbech. ^Malbesh or 
^lalbish : gu. a chev. or. betw. 3 hinds' heads, erased or. Also Mawdeby, 
azure, a cross or. 

Burke gives : Malbise : Ar. a chev. betw. 2 closets gu. 

In the windows of the Y^ork Cathedral in a side aisle of the 
north part of the transept are these arms : Azure a chevron ens^railed 
with 3 hinds' heads, erased or. ]\Ialbyss. (A ide p. 53?. "Ebor.") 

Since writing the above notes an item proving the theory of 
the Beckwith arms being hereditary from those of Sir John ^lale- 

* See under date 166S. 


bisse, has come to light. The Genealogist, 1888-89, ^'ol \\ has this 
item: "There is a dead in Uetham's Baronetage (Vol. II, app. p. 607V 
proving the right of Harmon Beckwith, Esq., to the coat armour 
of John Lord IVlalebisse" (1339). 

From the above notes it is quite clearly shown that the oldest 
]\Ialtby coat-of-arms is that blazoned with the hinds' heads, and 
the oldest branch of the family is quite evidently the Yorkshire 
branch shown in Pedigree Xo. I. 

The next mention found of ^laltby arms is in 1373. "'Introduc- 
tion to the Book of Arms" has the following: "All the shields com- 
memorate the descent and alliances of the Pastons and their kins- 
folk the Barreys and Mawtebys. . . .'' 

Margaret, daughter and heiress of John Mawteby, Esquire, the 
wife of John Paston, about 1440. made her will. 4 February, 1481-2, 
and thereby directed that many of the shields in this ]\IS. should 
grace her tomb. 

Four scutcheons were to be at the corners of her gravestone, 
''whereof the first scochen shall be of my husbandes armes and myn 
departed the ii qte. of ]\lawtebys arms and Berneys of Redham 
departed, the iij qte. of ]\Iawtebys arms and Sir Roger Beauchamp 
departed. And in myddis of seid stoon I will have a scochen sett 
of ^lawtebys' arms alone.'' 

Further impalements are : Mawteby impaled with gules, a fesse 
and six martlets or., for Beauchamp, Lord of Powilse. IMawteby 
impaled with gules, billety or and a fess argent for Loveyn CA^ide. 
"The Ancestor," Xo. 10, pp. 87-9.) 

The arms of the family of ]\Iautby [X^orfolk] are given in sev- 
eral places in Bloomfield's Hist, of X'orfolk as : Azure, a cross or. 
But in A'ol. A^II, p. 407 of Bloomfield they are stated to be: azure, 
a cross formee or. : and this is the description given in the \ isitation 
of X'orfolk. The latter is probably the correct description. ( \Tde. 
Bloomfield's. Xorfolk. \'ol. X. pp. 69-70; A'ol. VI, p. 404 : A ol. XI, 
p. 182 : A'ol. A'll, p. 467 : Msitation of X'orfolk, Edit, by Walter Rye, 
pp. 64-214). Following are given various records pertainin^^: to the 
X'^orfolk branch of the family: (See also Pedigree X"o. IV.) 

Malby (Co. Xorfolk) Azure, a cross formee or. 

Maiitby (Co. Xorfolk, 1373) Az. a cross or. 

Malb\- (Norfolk) Az. a cross formee, coupe, or. (A'^ide Berry Encylop. 
Heraldic, and also Burke.) 

The Xorfolk Maltbys held the Manor of Maltby. Co. Xorfolk. from the 
Crown, prior to 1166. Arms: a cross or. (Vide. Bloomfield Hist. Xorf. Vol. 
X.. pp. 69-70: Bloomfield Hist. Xorf.. Vol. VI.. p. 494; Bloomfield Hist. Xorf., 
Vol. XL. p. 182.) 

Burke gives arms of Mautebey and Mawedby as Azure, a cross or. 


Bloomfield, Vol. VIII., states that " the arms of Paston Mautby, etc., 
appear in the north window of Gresham Church.'" (p. 129) '"In Oxstraband 
Church appeared in a window the arms of Mautby-Berney." (p. 146). 

The "Herald, and Gen.." Vol. 4, has the following: "On a tomb in Xew- 
ton Chapel, Bristol Cathedral, is a large escutcheon of 24 quarterings, Xo. 
24 being Azure a cross pattee throughout or. ^Nlaultby. 

Friar Brackley's Book of Arms, cir. 1440 has: Mawteby : Argent, a 
chief indented or. (Paston) impaled with azure, a cross or. (Mawteby). 

In Vol. XL. of Bloomfield we find: "In the Church of Bacton appear on 
the steeple window the arms of Paston and ^lautby;" (p. 21.) and, "^lautby 
arms are in the church at Reedham;"' (p. 132.) also, "In the Church of St. 
Peter at Repps, are to be seen the arms of ^lautby, az. a cross or." (p. 182.) 
In Vol VI. we find the following: "The family house of Paston was in 
Manor Oxmead, X'orfolk." In the hall windows were : 


Arms of Mautby and Berney (John Maltby m. Margery Berney.) [Berney 

quart, az, and gu. a cross engrailed ermine.] 
Arms of Mautby impaling Loveine [gu. a fesS betw. 14 billets.] 
Arms of Mautby impaling Marshall [gu. a bend lozeng>' or.] 
Arms of Mautby imp.'ding Beauchamp [gu. a fess betw. 6 martlets or.] 
Arms of Mautbv impaling Clifton [Chequer or. and gu., a bend ermine.] (p. 


In the Church of St. Xicholas, Oxnead. a Paston coat-of-arms is to be 
seen (1597) the 6th quartering being: Azure a cross or. for Mautby (p. 4^4.) 

In Vol. \'I. we find: "In the Church of the Virgin or St. Margaret at 
Calthorpe, Xorfolk, in the upper window of the north side appeared with 
inter . . . the arms of Mautby." (p. 521.) 

The arms which follow are quite different from the above and 
probal)ly loelonc: to a cadet l)ranch of the X^orfolk family: 

MAW'BEY (Mawtby) Co. Xorfolk. Or. a cross gules fretty of the field be- 
tween four eagles displayed azure, each charged on the breast with rr 

MAUBEY (Botleys, Co. Surrey, Bart.) Same arms as above. Crest: an 
eagle displayed azure charged on the breast with a bezant. 

^lAWBEY ( Kemmington, Co. Surrey, granted 1757). Or. a cross gules, 

fretty of the field. Same as above. 

Fairbairn's Book of Crests gives : "^lawby and Mawbrey of Kemming- 
ton. Surrey, an eagle displayed azure, charged on the breast with a bezant." 
Also. Mawbey. Bart, (extinct) of Botleys. Surrey, same crest. Auriga vir- 
tutum prudentia. (Vide p. 381, Fairbairn's Crests.) Thomas Robson gives 
them as also of Vauxhall. Created a baronet. 30 July, 1765. 

The British Herald or Cabinet of Armorial Bearings of the X'obility 
and Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland, from the earliest to the present 
time, by Thomas Robson, published in 1830, Vol. II. gives the following: 
Malby [X'orfolk] azure a cross formee. coupee. or. Mautby: Az. a cross or. 

XoTE. — The arms granted in 1757 were evidently to Sir Joseph Mawbey. b. 
1730, see Pedigree Xo. IV.. Joseph (21), and the arms granted in 1765 were 


probably to his son Joseph (22). For the lineage of Alaubey of Botleys, 
Surrey, consult Burke's English and Dormant Baronetcies. For the union 
of Paston with Maulby or Alawtby or Mauteby see Paston's General Visi- 
tation of Norfolk, 1563, 1589, 1613. 

The History of Norfolk gives this item : "There were also in this win- 
dow. Cat impaling Mawtby." (This was, I believe, in 1462.) 

The third ^Nlaltbv arms to be considered are those of the Alaltbvs 
of Cleveland. York. (See Pedigree Xo. IP). The first date found 
by the compiler connected with these arms is in 1599 and is in The 
Genealogist, \o\. XXL. j). 120 (Add M.S. 12.225). It reads: Grant 
of Arms. Alaltby ... of Maltby in Cleveland, Co. York. Patent 
by Sir \Y Segar, Garter (X'orry in 1599). Arms: Argent, on a 
bend Gules, three garbs Or. Crest : A Garb Or, banded sable. 

If this item is correctly given in The Genealogist it would 
seem very evident that this was not the first grant to the family, 
as the original crest was very evidently the garb (sheaf of wheat) 
banded gules. By consulting Pedigree X'o. II it will be seen that 
Christopher ?^Ialtby (15), Alderman of York, was born in 1574 
and had a daughter Catherine, born in 1599 — the year the above 
arms were granted. The fact that Sir Xicholas Malby was using 
the wheat sheaves on his arms (with cotises introduced for a dift'er- 
ence) in 1576. when he was knighted, would tend to prove that the 
original Yorkshire arms were much older than 1599. 

The following are different references to the arms of this 
branch of the family : 

Parson's Cleveland. York Co.: Maltby. Ar. on a bend gules. 3 garbs 
or. Crest : Garb. 

Edmondson's Heraldry. Fairbairn's Crests, p. yi2. Maltby of Maltby. 
Cleveland, York, a garb or. banded gules. Maltby or Malby : Ar. on a bend 
gu. 3 garbs or. 

Edmondson and Glover assign to Maltby of Maltby in Cleveland. Yorks. 
Arg. on a bend, 3 garbs or. Glover assigning a crest: Argent, a garb or. 
banded gules. 

Burke's Gen. Armory: Maltby, Cleveland, Co. York, Ar. on a bend gules, 
3 garbs or. Crest: a garb or. banded gules (a barley sheaf). Malby arms, 
same as Maltby (p. 372. Fairbairn's Crests). Crest: an Indian goat passant. 

Fairbairn's Crests of England and Ireland (p. 372) : Maltby (Essex) : 
Crest, a barley sheaf erect and banded or. Pendant therefrom a bugle horn or. 

XoTE. — This is the crest used by the Maltbys descended from Christopher 
Maltby of Xorth Allerton. (See Pedigree XIV.) The bugle horn is for a 
Pennycuick marriage.* 

* Since the abnvp was Avritten avp have received a cony of the Grant of 
Arm.s to Thomas Maltby of XorthaUerton. (See Pedigree XIV. > The bugle 
horn is from the Foxton family and not the Pennycuicks. 


From Burke's Gen. Arm., 1884 Edit. : 

MALBY ( Sir Xicholas. Chief Com. of Connaught, knighted at Athlone by 
Sir Henry Sydney, Lord Dept. of Ireland, 7 Oct., 1576.) Argent on a bend 
between two cotises gules three garbs or. 

Note. — This is practically the arms as used by Elizabeth Malby. dau. of 
Arthur Malby. who m. William Beswick in 1616. The onh- difference being 
the cotises were engrailed on her arms, which is simply a zigzag line instead 
of a straight one. to put it as simply as possible for any who perchance are 
not familiar with heraldic terms. 

The following is a very similar arms: MAWTBY (Granted May, 1612) : 
Ermine on a bend between two cotises engrailed gules, three garbs or. 

In the Visitation of Lincolnshire (The Genealogist. Vol. IV.. 1880. oi 

1886?) p. 259. is the following: "Richard Morgan m. Margaret, dau. of 


The Harleian Society Publications. 1903. p. 609. had the pedigree of 
Islorgain of Gainsborough : "Morice Morgan m. Elizabeth, dau. of William 
I'orman of Gainsborough, yeoman, sister of Sir William Forman. the Lord 
Mayor of London, 153S. Their son, Richard Morgan, of Gainsborough, m. 

Margaret dau. of Maltby. They had a son. William Morgan." In this 

connection we give an item from an old newspaper: ''Sept. 1, 1818, Lady 
Morgan, an authoress, was visiting her relation. Sir Maltby and Lady Crofton 
at their country home at Sligo." 

Thomas Robson's "British Herald. Vol. II.. gives: Malby or Maltby: 
Argent on a bend gules, three garbs or. Malby: the same arms. Crest: An 
Indian goat passant or. Maltby ( Maltby, Cleveland. Yorks.) : Argent on 
J bend gules, three garbs or. Crest: A garb or. banded gules. Maulby. or 
Maltby (London) : Argent on a bend, between two bendlets engrailed gules, 
three garbs or. 

For a very similar coat-of-arms. see the following: The Visitation of 
Kent. 1619-1621, has the following: "Will'mus Bseswick dc (mar.) Eliza, 
filia et CO — Spilmanden ( Spelmaden ) in Comm. haer. Arthuri Malbe. 
Cant'Ar. at vicecocnes ex L'rargeria filia comitatus Anno 1616. Rob'ti 
Couletowe ; and under Beswick als' Berwick, one given the arms, with Quar- 
terly 2 and 3. Argent on a bend between 2 cortises engrailed gules, three 
garbs banded or. (Malby) William Beswicke was a son of WilFmus Bes- 
wicke. de. London, alderman, als* dictus Berwick:" he m. Joanna, soror 
Hen. Harte de Xewenham. Co. Cantiji. 

Burke's Gen. Armory gives (Edit. 1884) : Maltby [Edward. Bishop of 
Chichester. 1831. and Durham. 1836-1856] : Argent on a bend gules between 
a lion rampant and a cross pattee of the second, three garbs or. 

Fairbairn's Book of Crests, p. 372: Maltby. late Rt. Rev. Edward. D.D.. 
Bishop of Durham, between two branches of olive proper a garb or. charged 
with a cross pattee gules. Xin sine labore. (For grant of arms, see under 
article on Bishop Edward Maltby. 

The arms g"enerally used in the present day by the ?^Ialtbys 
are the sheaves of wheat on a bend enles. This is the coat-of-arms 
tised by the ]\Ialtby Association^''. The motto used is: 'A'irtus sub 
pondere crescit." The General Isaac (4) ^laltby descendants used 

* The coat of arms shown in the frontispiece is a modification engraved 
by Z. U. Maltby. Esq. 


'*Ouod serveus metes." ]\Ir. Broiigh Alaltby has an old seal which 
has been in his family for generations ; the arms are as above and 
the motto is: "Praesto et Persisto." 

Capt. Samuel (2) IMaltby had a c6at-of-arms, as is shown by 
the inventory of his estate which mentions "A coat-of-arms, 10 
shillings; it also mentions "Seal, 20 shillings." He died in 1751. 
The Alontreal ]\Ialtbys, descended from the ^laltbys of Leeds, \"ork, 
also owned a coat-of-arms. It was on a seal ring belonging to their 
grandfather, but was lost and none of the family recall the device. 

The coat-of-arms which has descended in Cul. R. L. ^Maltby's 
family (descended from the ]\Ialtbys of Scarborough) is very in- 
teresting. Roughly speaking the arms are quarterly or. and argent. 
The crest is a W'yren. as nearly as can be ascertained and the motto 
is "Fear God in Life." There is no questioning the fact that the 
family believed these arms to be ^laltby coat armour, but as a matter 
of fact they are the arms of the Claverings. These arms were sent 
to an English correspondent, who knowing nothing of the people, 
replied: "This is not a Maltby arms; evidently someone fancies he 
descends from the ]\Iaultby or ]\Ialtby who married a Clavering. 
If this surmise is correct and he can prove his descent from ^liss 
Clavering you have struck a good find. The Clavering arms being 
similar; i.e., quart, or. and gules, over all a bend sab. (or a bendlet)." 

As a matter of fact the Maltbys owning these arms never heard 
of any Clavering marriage and it would seem very probable that 
John Maltby, born at Scarborough in 1712, descended from Sir John 
Mawtby. Knt., who mar. Elizabeth (or Isabel?) dau. of Robert 
Clavering, son of Roger, Lord of Clavering, 9 Edward IL (1326). 
See Pedierree Xo. TA'- A. Paston-Maltbv. 


The following record from the \ isitations of Norfolk. 1 563-1613. 
give: "Sir John ]\Iautby Arms: Quart., or and gules a bendlet 
sable." It is quite evident that these arms came into use from the 
Clavering marriage just mentioned. The compiler can not state 
positively, indeed feels very doubtful, that the ]\Ialtby arms of tht 
Scarborough branch should read or. and arg. A rough sketch of the 
arms was furnished by a descendant and the dots in the first and 
fourth quarters of the shield indicated gold. As the second and 
third quarters were left plain it was assumed they were argent. 
However, it seems unusual to use two metals in this manner and it 
would seem very probable that there was orio^inally a color blazoned 
on the shield.

In conclusion we find that the Anglo-Norman ^lalbys family 
evidently obtained grants temp, of the Conquest — their arms the 
Hinds' heads. The name Malesbvs appears in Le Land's List 
amongst others who accompanied \\^illiam the Conqueror to Ens:- 
land. (A'ide Hist, of the Conquest of England by Augustin 

* Since writing- these notes on the ]Maltby arms there came to my 
attention another blazon quite new to me, and of very early date. In 
fact, it seems doubtful if it be a Maltby seal. Under date 1219-4. Henry 
TIT we find Robert Mauteby Riving to St. Mary of Sibton Priory in Suffolk, 
all his lent in his saU works. A lion rampant on the Seal. Unfortunately 
the compiler is not sufficiently versed in heraldry to solve this problem. 
A gentleman writing of Bishop Edward Maltby's coat-of-arms says: "The 
Lion rampant represents some marriage with a Beaumont." By consulting 
the English Notes we find the Sutton and Maltby families closely con- 
nected and also note the name Beaumont Sutton. Tt may be a connecting 
link. (See Will of John Maltby of E. Retford, Ifi47-S. believed to be father 
of the three brothers who emigrated to New England. In this will he 
makes Beaumont Sutton of E. Retford, gent., overseer of his estate.) 


Thierry, translated by William Hazlett, 1891 ; pub. by Geo. Bell 
and Co.) 

We also learn that the Xorfolk Alautbys held the ^lanor of 
Maltbw Co. Xorfolk, from the crown prior to 1166. Arms: a cross. 

It seems to the compiler that the progenitor of the Maltby family 
was Hugo de Malbisse (Pedigree X^o. I). The X'^orfolk branch, 
tracing to Simon de Mauteby it would seem were closely related to 
Sir Simon Malebisse, Lord of Crowton in Craven, who married a 
daughter of Lord Methley (See Pedigree Xo. I) ; and the Alaltbys 
of Maltby and Muston. Cleveland, York, were probably nearly re- 
lated to Sir William de Maltby. who had lands in Cleveland, built the 
chapel at Ayton. where he was Lord of the Manor before 1200. 

In regard t< > the coat-of-arms of the Cleveland, Yorks., Maltbys, 
Mr. ivees-W'ebbe. late captain in the English arm\-, and then a clergy- 
man in ihe Church i)f I^ngland. told the com])iler that the garbs in 
the arms (len«»tc<l lliey held large church lands. Mr. Rees-Webbe 
had a fine collection of seals and was well posted in heraldy. Hut 
this statement has been contradicted by another gentleman who main- 
tains the wheat sheaves are used b\- so many different families they 
could hardh all have l)een holders of considerable church lands. 
However, it is a fact that the Maltbys did give largely to the church 
land ill ilieir j^ossession and were founders of various abbeys; as 
Hugo ( J ) who founded the Priory of Spinney ; Sir \\'illiam (3) who 
built the Chaj)el at Ayton: Richard (3) who founded the Monastery 
of Xeubo Abbey, Lincoln, in 1 u>8 : John (4) who confirmed grants 
of Morton Grange to the Abbot Xeubo: William (5) who confirmed 
grants to Pyland Abbey in 1247: William (6) gave lands to the 
Priory of Briddlinoton. 1267, and various other such records which 
will be foimd in the Entilish notes. 

The conclusion reached by those most familiar with the records 
of the Maltby family is, that they all descend from the original Hugo 
de Malebisse, who held lands at the time of the Conquest. This 
seems a broad statement, but if we refer to the emigrant ancestor 
of the American branch, we find we can state the same : for although 
three brothers went to X^ew Ene^land the line of John in the male 
issue failed in the third generation : Robert is not knowm to have 
had any descendants, consequently this branch of the familv all 
descend from \\^illiam (i ) and in like manner those bearing the 
name ^Maltby. must be descendants of the three yoimgest sons, 
namely: Daniel (2). Samuel (2) and Jonathon (2). The following 
extract from an old letter may be of interest in this connection : 

The letter is dated "Taunton, Mass., June 14, 1895," and was 
from ^Irs. Loverine to Mrs. Georee Ellsworth ^Maltbv. 


Mrs. Lovering writes : "The home of the English Maltbys is many, yet 
notwithstanding I have spent many months in England, the only ]\Ialtby I 
have ever met lived in Brussels. We were attending an international exhibi- 
tion of arts and sciences in Brussels. Walking slowly past a bench or plat- 
form devoted to hand decorated china, my attention was attracted to some 
pieces more original in design than others. Examining them closely I was 
surprised to see the paintings signed 'Gertrude Maltby' and 'Eva Maltby.' To 
be as brief as possible ... I met Gertrude, who was organizing a choir 
of children, who were to take part in the festivities that afternoon to do 
honor to King Leopold's guest. Rudolf of Austria, who had come a-courting 
the Princess Stephanie. 

"Gertrude was a matronly English maiden of about thirty-five. She and 
her sister Eva were the daughters of the English consul at Brussels, who had 
been stationed there forty years. She said, 'I wish my father could meet 
you, he is much interested in the family genealogy and is always mousing 
around old libraries and record cabinets to glean something new. Durham 
was once a famous headquarters for our race,' etc. When I hinted that my 
interest was in the name, even though we might not have had a common 
origin, she answered, 'O. do not say that, my father says we are all de- 
scended from Hugo de Maltby, who was in the train of William the Con- 
queror.' " 

It was in 1880 that Rudolf of Austria made this trip to Brussels 
which terminated so disastrously for the Princess, As Mr. Maltby 
had been for forty years consul at Brussels, this would place his 
appointment as consul to Brtissels in the year 1840; so he was prob- 
ably born about 1810 or 1815. Could his descendants be discov- 
ered it is extremely likely that many of the records so earnestly 
desired by present day ^laltbys would be fotmd. 

In the Print Room at the British IMuseum, Book plates of vari- 
ous members of the Maltby family are to be seen. AMiether these 
are registered in the College of Arms I do not know. (E. C. Harte, 
Wells, Eng.)

Note. — "From these I gather that when Edward Maltby became a bishop 
he had to register his arms at the Heralds' College and the lion represents 
some marriage with a Beaumont and the cross to note the Bishop, or the cross 
may have reference to the Arms of Malby of Norfolk, and evidently he had 
not impaled the correct arms of Green, implving that he married a Miss 
Green."— E. C. Harte. 

Note by D. M. V. — According to the biography of the Bishop (Vide. 
Diet. Nat. Biog.) his wife was a Miss Harvey. His mother was Alary Fear- 
man; his grandmother, Elizabeth Taylor, and his great-grandmother Jane 
Brough. So if the Beaumont came from a Maltby marriage it was before 
1640. Of course, it is likely that it was on the maternal side. But in this 
connection it is well to note that John Maltby of E. Retford makes Beau- 
mont Sutton, gent., overseer of his estate in 1647-8. This may prove a con- 
necting link with the Bishop's family and that of the New England Alaltbys, 
descending from the above John Maltby of E. Retford. 


These notes of the English Maltbys have been gathered from 
time to time and are simply stray items, mostly unclassified. How- 
ever, where the compiler has been able to place an individual, a note 
at the end of the record has been added in order that those who are 
interested may have some help in placing the members of the vari- 
ous branches of the family. 

An effort has been made to keep the notes in chronological 
order, but in spite of numerous revisions of manuscript this has not 
always been possible, and in some cases, to make the family connec- 
tions more clear, the notes have purposely been misplaced as to 

The compiler wishes particularly to acknowledge the help given 
bv Edward C. Harte, Esq.. of Wells, Somerset, who furnished a lars^e 
number of the Eno-Hsh notes and was of much assistance with the 


Heraldry of the Maltbys. To the AFaulsby Genealogy, admirably 
compiled by Miss Ella K. Barnard of Baltimore, I am indebted for 
the births, marriages and deaths transcribed from the Orston Regis- 
ters. The bulk of tlie material, in wills, chancery proceedings and 
so forth, were furnished by Gerald Fothergill, Esqre, of London, 
whose efficient genealogical services have made possible the publish- 
ing of these records and also has done so much toward proving the 
ancestry of the American Alaltbys of Xew England.

XoTE. — Robert ^Liutby m. Ellen, dau. of William Marshall, the younger 

(Vide Vist. Xorfolk). See Pedigree VIII. This is very evidently one and the 

same person. Perhaps John le Mareschel was a brother-in-law of Robert 

de Malteby. Xotice that in one record the name is spelled Mautby and in 

the other Malteby. This is the first record I find connecting the Mahbys 

in any way with Ireland. See also Pedigree IV-A.

.\()TE. — Before beginning the records of the next century it may be well 
to note tliat in the items above, nearly every person mentioned can be traced, 
or placed, to the Yorkshire nr Xorfolk Maltbys found in Pedigrees L. II. and 
IV. From the commencement of the I5th century. 14(X) to 1499. it is more diffi- 
cult to identify the persons contained in the records; this, of course, ovvmg" 
to the fact that the younger sons emigrated to new counties, and also to 
the greatlx' increased number of descendants. It shows very clearly, how- 
ever, that every generation further back we are able to trace our ancestry. 
just so much easier becomes the task, as there were comparatively few of 
the name living in the first two or three hundred years after the Conquest. 
1401. Thomas .Malby. Mayor of Limerick. 1401 ( \'ide : Ferrar's 
Hist, of Limerick ). 

XoTK — This is the second record of a Maltby in Ireland in my possession.* 
1401. July. Conhrmat. Sellers Patent to William Maltby and 
Margaret, his wife, and others to found a Chantry for 4 Chap- 
lains in the Church of St. Martin Sevestre (p. ^yi, Cal. Patent 
1401-1402. Robert de Maltebv. Citizen of London (pp. 81-496. 

Cal. Patent Rohs). 
*I402. Tuey ( ?) Robert Malteby. Citizen of London, suing for 
10 marks, John Sampson, Jr., of Plymouth (Cal. Patent Rolls). 
XoTE. — These records are about the earliest of any London Maltbys and 
they probably were of Yorkshire stock. 

1405. Oct. 26. ^laltby. ^Matilda de. Aldwerk. York, fst. St. Thomas 
de "Herfordensis Epi," 1405 ( \'ol. 3. 238 folio, Y^orkshire Wills). 

1406. Robert Malteby (of London) suino- Xicholas W^aryn of Co. 
Essex (p. 135, Cal. Patent Rolls). Evidently the same as in 
item 1402. 

* 1401. This item may be important and prove the connection between 
the London Maltbys and the Malebisse familv of Yorkshire. Pedigree T. 
William (9) de Malebisse, Miles, 1339; died about 1365: married a daughter 
of John Sampson, Miles, and here we find in 1402, Robert ^ilalteby, Citizen 
of London, suing John Sampson, junior, of Plymouth for 10 marks. It

died before 1443. This Petronell was a daughter of Sir Robert 
de Maltaby, Kt.. and Olive, his wife. How Petronell became 
Somery's heiress is not known. 

XoTK. — In Pedigree I\'., it will l)e seen that Sir Walter (5) Mauteby m. 

Petronella and his son. Sir Robert (6). m. Olive . It is 

probable that Petronella was a Somery, hence the inheritance to her 

granddaughter, Petronell. Also it is worthy of note that Bloomfield spells 
the name IMaltaby in Vol. I., p. 243, proving to skeptics that it is the same 
name as Mauteb}-.

is the effi':jy of a Knight Templar''' cross legged in armour, in 
memory, it is said, of a Knight of the de Mauteby familv living 
according to the style of the monument circ. 1250. 

The south aisle, where many ]\Iautbys were buried was re- 
built by ^Margaret Paston and she was buried there but it was 
in ruins (in 1810). In the church was the shield of St. Peter 

* Query: Does '-armig-eir" refer to John Alaltby being- of an armor- 
genous family or has it to do with one who made armor? We find the 
same term used in the Marbury Pedigree (VII) where it mentions: Anne 
Marbury, mar. (2) Armiger Warde. Query: Is this Ward familv connected 
with those mentioned in Pedigree notes. Pedigree V. 

* It is probable that the coat-of-arms of the Xorfolk familv are derived 
from this early Knight Templar. The silver cross on tlie blue field would 
be a fitting emblem of his crusades.

1540-42. ]\Ialbie, John, Crick. (Book G., p. 118, P. 35). 

* The name Roger i.s uncommon in the Malthy Family up to this date. 
Perhaps this Roger is tlie Roger, Vicar of St. Xicliolas. See under date 
156.3. Also in 1.t92, at Springthorpe, Roger :Maltby had a son .John, bapt. 26 
Nov., 1592. 

t The writer has wondered if this John is John Maltby of Kexby Hall, 
Will 1557. Presumed to be the ancestor of the American Maltbvs of New 
England, 1667-70. 

± Ts this Sir Nicholas ^Vlalby of the Irish notes? The records say: 
"Sir Nicholas ]\lalby's fatlier died when he was four years old — died about 
15.34." This is near enough so that it would be possible for this Nicholas 
to be one and the same as Sir Nicholas. 

§ Anthony ^Taltliy. Tliis is a name found amongst the Orston ^raltbys 
and also Anthony Marbury is a very common name in the ^Slarbury family. 
There seems to be a close connection here between the Maltbys and Mar- 
burys. See further under Maltby Heraldry.

XoTE. — This John Maultby, dwelling in Xorfolk, is probably a son of 
Roger Maltby. \^icar of St. Xicholas, Xorfolk in 1563. Does this means 
Walsingham a place? And is this John the brother of Sir Xicholas, who 
he mentions in 1580?

X^OTE. — This is a will pertaining to the American Alaltbys, John (3).

be well to give here births and baptisms of his children recorded at Spring-

XoTE. — It will be seen that the second son, John, is not amongst these 
children ; he was probably born at Upton. Neither are the births of his 
daughters. Margaret and Mary, recorded at Springthorpe. The daughter 
Ellen, mentioned in his will, was probably the Hellen, bapt. in 1595.

Maltbys, as it might throw additional light on the ancestry of their pro- 
genitor, \Villiam Maltby, gent., b. in 1641.

Xote. — From the dates 1610 and 1600 it would seem that Lawrence 

!Moberly of Cottingham was nearly related to Christopher of Cottingham. 

1619. The Y^ork Marriage Licenses read: Sir ]^Iichael AA'ar- 
ton of Beverley and Evereld ^laltby of Cottingham at 
Beverley or Cottingham. 161 9. 

Xote. — Query: Should the previous note read Evereld and not Catharine^ 
And did Evereld marry twice? Still she would have been called widow if the 
following record applied to her. It is from York Marriage Licenses, 1626, 
and reads : "Geo. Wentworth, gent., of Wolley and Averil Maltby of Cotting- 
ham, 1626. at Royston or Cottingham." The York Marriage Licenses also 
have "Robert Hemhough of Drax and Thomazine Maltby of Drax. 1612.

Note. — This is evidently the "brother John" mentioned in the will of 
Peter Alaltby in 1625. 

1636. N. B. — The Orston records which follow are in bad shape 
owing to the register being eaten away, torn and badly damaged. 
It wall be noted that after 1639 the Alaltby records cease until 
1662. As it was in 1641 that W^illiam Maltby, gent., who married 
Jane Brough, was born, it is very probable that his birth follows 
that of Mar\' Maltby in 1639, and that he was a son of John and

Note. — The descendants of William Maltby of Orston. b. 1641, should 
study these records well. Let us look at the names of the children of John 
and Alarv ]\Ialtbv. viz. : 

1633." Elizab'eth. 

1634. Anne. 

1636. Hugh. 

1639. Mary; and there was evidentlv Thomas, as in 1662 we find: 
"Thomas, son of John Maltby, buried 27 Oct., 1662." 

Suppose, for example, William, b. 1641, was a son of the above John 
and Mary Maltby. He m. Jane, dau. of George Brough. Now let us glance 
over the names of his children, as follows : 

William, named for himself. 

Mary, named for his mother. 

George, named for his wife's father. 

Anne, named for his sister and perhaps his grandmother as well. 

Thomas. He evidently had a brother Thomas, and it may have been his 
grandfather's name. 

John, named for his father. 

Charles. This is not a Maltby name; perhaps it was a Brough name, 
or on the maternal side of his famil}-. 

Elizabeth. He had a sister Elizabeth. 

Surely, if there is anything in the names of children to indicate a 
family's descent, here is strong evidence. And there certainly is a finger post 
pointing the way. to be read plainly by any genealogist in the way children 
were named in the earlv davs.

Y;, A])1.,'i648. Filed Will. 

This Will appears ai^ain under the American section of the 
book, but it will bear considerable study here. Fr(^m the Retford 
Baptisms we learn that John Maultbie had a son Richard, bapt. 15 
Aug., 1642, and from the Retford lUirials that Richard died 7 Aug., 
1644. John Maltby, the father, died 4 Jan.. 1647-8. 

Mrs. Anne Alason, godmother of his dauq"hter Elizabeth, was 
probably a connection by marriage, as his niece Marcraret married 
\\^illiam Mason, gent., of E. Retford. His nephew John was a son 
of his brother Robert of Bautry. 

It will be noticed that in his will John Maltby leaves ''Eldest 
son. .John Maltby, houses in Brioq:ate, E. Retford, etc." And further: 
'A\^ife Marv to hold mv houses durins: the nonag^e of my sons Jon 
and \\^illiam," and still further in the codicil : ''House in Bri^Q:ate 
to be sold and £too to son John at 21 and the residue for mv vouno:- 
est son, lately born." This younc^est son was Robert. The Retford 
Baptisms give: ^'28^ Dec, 1647. Robt. son of John Maultby." 


Xow if we turn to the year 1662 we find William Carr and 
Dorothy, his wife ; John ]\Ialtby ; George Holmes and Alarv, his 
wife ; Robert ?^Ialtby ; Robert Wliite and Johne, his wife, selling two 
messuages, two gardens. 25 acres of land, etc., in East Retford, etc. 
\\'illiam Carr and wife Dorothy I fail to place. John Alaltby 
1 take to be John, son of John, who had come of age (hence he 
would have been born in 1641 ) and was selling the houses in Brig- 
gate to secure his £100 and it was probably this money received thai 
started him in the Xew \A\jrld, for it will be remembered that onlv 
two years later, 1664. April, we find John ]\Ialtby's signature in Xew 

George Holmes and Alary, his wife. This I presume to be 
Mary Maltby, wid. of John Maltby. who had remarried. This \vould 
exj)lain why no will of a .Mar\' Maltby could be found by Air. 

Robert White and Johne. his wife. Tn the will of William, son 
of Robert Maltby of Bawtry. he mentions: "his cousin, Jane Turn- 
ell," always presumed to be Jane, dau. of John Maltby. Possibly 
she m. first Robert White. Aluch of this is ])urely conjecture, but 
it is plausible and worth keepin^.^' in mind.

Note. — The Suttons and Maltbys seem to have been closely connected. 
The name Hamond Maltby evidently came from the Suttons. The Will of 
John ^Mahb}', of E. Retford, 1647. mentions for overseer, "Beaumont Sut- 
ton, Gent." The Will of Johan Maltbye, 1545, mentions Isabell Sutton.

from the Suttons.) The Will of Robert ]\Ialtby of Wilgheton. 1635. men-

brother John, or in other words, the John we believe emigrated to Xew 
England. His father having died, he evidently was co-heir with his cousins. 

The following agreement has previously been mentioned and 
it is believed to be the sale which furnished the funds for John 
iMaltby to start life in the Xew \\'orld.

Note. — The Dorothy Carr I fail to place. John Maltby is evidently the 
son of John, Will proved 1647-8, and when he became of age the property 
in l^riggate was to be sold and he was to receive ilOO and his brother Robert 
was to have the residue. Consequently John ]Maltby was evidently b. in 
1640-41. Mary Holmes I take to be his widowed mother, who m. George 
Holmes and Johne (Joan) White may have been his sister Jane.

the same "Crowne" messuage owned by Daniel Maltby. A note on the

will be found under date 1668.

before 17 14, C. 542-206.) 

Note. — This also bears out the supposition that to raise money to go 
to New England, Robert Maultbie mortgaged his three messuages in Bawtry.

deft, as next of kin by the P. C. Y. Estate of Ann Maltby. 
( Chanc. Proc. before 1714. C. 63.) 

XoTE. — It would seem that Ann, w. of Robert Maltby of Bawtry, Will 
proved 1663-5, was an Aliired or possibly John Alured was a sister's son. 
If she were an Alured, then William Alaltby, Will 1666-7, was probably the 
son by a first wife (perhaps Barbara) Stoakham. It also would seem that 
Robert Alaltby, returning to England and needing funds, tried to collect 
rents from the estate left his infant daughter by her grandmother. The fact 
that this Robert of Bawtry was slighted in his brother's will and that he 
seems to have been in more or less legal difficulties, rather points to the 
fact that he was personna non grata with his relatives.

XoTE. — This is evidently the wife of Charles, son of William and Jane 
Brough Alaltby. She would have been born in 1697 and was probably about 


the same age as lier husband. The dau. Martha seems to have been born in 
1723 and Charles Maltby probably m. about 1720.

XoTE. — These three records from St. Mary. Woohvorth Burials. 

1746. In 1746 a Charles Maltby was committed to Y'ork Castle 
for High Treason. 

With the hope that some descendam. either in England or the States 
may be able to furnish some information concerning the following item we 
are publishing it in this book. Anyone who can throw any light on this 
subject is earnestly requested to inform the compiler. 

"The History of Massachusetts, from the hrst settlement in 1628 to 
1750 by Thomas Hutchinson, late Governor of Massachusetts. Boston. 1795." 
page 357. 

(In the year 17-M3.) ''At length it being known that Lord Huston's 
election for Coventry was dubious, one of these gentlemen undertook to the 
Duke of Grafton to secure the election, provided Mr. Belcher might imme- 
diately be removed, and to accomplish his design he represented to Mr. 
Maltby, a large dealer in Coventry stuffs, and a zealous dissenter, that Mr. 
Belcher was with the Episcopal clerg\-. conspiring the ruin of the Congre- 
gational interest in Xew England, and unless he was immediately removed, 
it would be irrevocably lost; that the Duke of Grafton had promised if Lord 
Huston's election could be secured it should be done ; that letters to his 
friends in Coventry would infallibly secure it; that he could not better em- 
ploy his interest than in the cause of God and religion. Maltby swallowed 
the bait, used all his interest for Lord Euston ; the twe gentlemen spent three 
weeks at Coventr}-. and having succeeded, agreeable to the Duke's promise, 
Mr. Belcher was removed a day or two after their return. This account I 
received from Mr. Maltby himself, who lamented that he had suffered him- 
self to be so easih" imposed on." 

From the syntax it would seem that the ''Mr. Maltby" of whom Gov- 
ernor Hutchinson wrote, resided in the Colony and journeyed to England 
to labor for the interests of the Congregational Church in Xew England, 
and that he returned to X'ew England, where he had an interview with 
Governor Hutchinson. Who was this "Mr. Maltby?" Was it Captain 
Samuel (2) Maltby? The Genealogist can think of no other Maltby who 
would have been of the proper age and educationally fitted for such a mis- 
sion. If this was Samuel (2) Maltby. did he visit relatives in England at 
this time, and did he perhaps bring back that "coat-of-arms" which figures 
in the inventory of his estate some ten years later? 

Could some reader look up the above mentioned reference? Doubtless 
if we had more material copied we should have some clue to the identity of 
the "Mr. Maltby" mentioned. Possibh' there are other references to the 
Maltby s in this book. It is certainly worth investigating.

who was heir of her uncle Walter do). Sir Thomas (10) also a daughter, Elizabeth ( 1 1 ) Maltby. .co-heiress with Margaret 
Maltb\- Fairfax. 

XL MARGARET :\falebisse Fairfax had a dau. Elizabeth 
( 12) Fairfax, who m. first. John Herringe. and second Adam Beck- 
with of Clynt. according to one authority ; another claims it was 
Elizabtth ( II ) Malebisse, co-heiress with Margaret fii), who m. 
first John Herringe and second Adam Beckwith of Clint. It must 
be remembered that Adam Beckwith was a Maltby by blood, the 
Beckwith being a maternal ancestry. See Pedigree of Beckwith. 

This family apparently dies out. as it ends in female lines only, 
but it must be remembered that only the line of one son was carried 
down, and there must have been many branches from this tree. For 
proof that this was the case we find: "4 Oct.. 1426. the Will of 
Dame Sibilla. relic, of Sir William Malbys. Kt.. of Acaster ]\Ialbys. 
Adm. A'ol. TL, folio 497. 

XoTE — It is probable that Giiilfrid (2). who witnessed the charter of 
the founding of Beverly Abbey. Lincolnshire, was the progenitor of the Lin- 
colnshire Malbys (see Pedigree) and that Sir William (3) de Maltby. 1207, 
who held lands in Cleveland was the head of the ^laltbys of Maltby branch 
(see Pedigree II.) : though as yet this has not been proven. 


An item that evidently refers to Walter (10) Maltb}^ of this pedigree, 
appears in Miss Mary Cholmondeley"s "Diana Tempest" and is well worth 
inserting here. The item is quoted from memory, but relates how, while 
at church, one of the characters looked up to the window, where the sun 
streamed through the painted arms of the Maltbys "of the pious, penniless 
Maltby who sold his lands to his grasping Tempest ( ?) brother-in-law. that 
he might go to the Holy Lands." And later two of the characters stand in 
the window of the tower of the castle and look down at the sill where "Tom 
Fairfax carved his name in the days of Cromwell." * 

From these items it seemed quite evident that Miss Cholmondeley was 
acquainted with some of the ancient history of the Maltbys. Fairfaxes, etc., 
and the compiler wrote requesting any further information she might be 
able to give. Miss Cholmondeley replied in the third person : "Miss Chol- 
mondeley knows nothing of the Maltbys." A note so curt and lacking in 
the ordinary forms of civility, it needs must leave anything but a fortunate 
impression of the author of "Red Pottage," etc. Cholmondeley Castle was, 
and still is. in Cheshire, and the description given of the ancient tower in 
"Diana Tempest" is evidently a description of the one at Cholmondeley 
Castle, so perhaps the Maltby arms are also there. For a Maltby residing 
in Cheshire, see under date 1211. relating to Richard de Maltebi.

Nigel de Albina) granted (inter alia) the fee of lands in Carlton,'*'

II. One authority states: ''Sir \\'illiani ^Nlalebis m. Emma de 
Percev. dan. of Henr\- de Percy of Acaster." T am inclined to think 
this is the correct record, and that Sir William (2) is the same 
person as William de Maltby (i). Pedigree II.. who was in Co. 
Y^ork. I ICO A. 1). Xote that William ( i ) of Pedigree II.. names a

Note. — Acaster-Malbis : Emma de Percy was evidently either sole, or 
co-heiress of Henry de Percy of Acaster. hence her st>n i< called "of Acaster

fird: "He rose suddenlv and went across to the deep bay window, on the 
stone sill of which Amvas Tempest, and Tom Fairfax, his friend, who 
together had held Overleigh against the Roundheads, had cut their names."

descend the Roger Maltbys in later years. It is well to note the reference 
to the land of Eton, for we find (Pedigree II.) that John (3) de ^Maltby m. 
a de Etton. "Gilbert"' is a name frequently found in the Etton family ; and 
as John (3) names a son Gilbert, it is very probable that his wife was a 
du. of Gilbert de Etton. The writer descends from Maltilda de Etton. living 
about 1399. The Townshend Family says of her " of noble race in the 
County York." In Pedigree I. we find that Sir William (3) de Maltby, 1207, 
held lands in Cleveland, Co. York, and built a Chapel at Ayton, where he was 
lord of the manor before 1200. Query: Is Ayton and Etton not the same

between 1209 and 1331. It evidently should read 1309 and 1339 may refer 
to the death of John. A letter from Mr. Charles Maltby to the compiler

of the lieiress of Sir George Maltby. his sister. Sarah Maltby having married 
John Poulett. See under date 1640 in Irish Notes. 

The above data states that Catharine ^Liltby m. Michael Warton. yet 
the following record is taken from the York Marriage Licenses: "Sir Michael 


Warton of Beverly and Evereld Maltby of Cottingham at Beverly or Cot- 
tingham (m.) 1619." 

The York Marriage Licenses also give : "George Wentworth, gent., of 
Wolley and Averilla Maltby of Cottingham (mar.) 1636, at Royston or 

It would seem that Evereld Maltby who m. Sir ^lichael \Varton in 1619, 
was Everild, wid. of Christopher Maltby. and that she was also a second 
wife of Sir Michael Warton. and that their children, who would have been 
step-brother and sister, m. in 1620. 

The Genealogist, Vol. II.. (1894) p. 217. states: "Michaell Warton of

The three silver castors reproduced in this book are part of a collection 
of silver plate presented to the City of York, and were the gift of Chris- 
topher Maltby. Alderman of York. See his will. 1 Feb., 27 Elizabeth, 1585. 

It will be seen that the castors have a cross on them in a shield. 
Query; Does this pertain to some coat-of-arms of the City of York, or is it 
the arms of the Norfolk Maltbys? An English friend tells me that the plate 
would be likely to bear the family arms of the donor. If this is true it would 
be a most interesting piece of evidence in connecting the Yorkshire and 
Norfolk branches of the familv.

descended from this family. Enderby Malbys is now Maris Enderby. This 
family was probably a branch of the Maltbys or Malebisses of Pedigrees I. 
and II. From the spelling. ^Ialby, and the name Henry, in this branch, it 
may be the branch of Sir Nicholas Malby.

^lAAVBEY'-SURREY (See Pedigree IV.) 

From "^Manning and Bray's Hist, of Surrey," Vol. III. : "In the 
small church of Ravenstone, in the road between Leicester and 
Ashbv-de-la-Zouch. about two miles from the latter, against the 
north wall in the Chancel, on a white marble table, is this inscrip- 
tion : 'Mr. John ]\Iawbey, late of this parish died, on 4 Sept., 1754, 
in the 62d year of his age. Descended from an ancient and genteel 
family, long settled in the counties of Leicester and Northampton 
into which latter they came from the County of Xorfolk, where 
formerly they were owners of large possessions. The said John 
]\Iawbey m. ]\Iartha, dau. of Mr. Thomas Pratt, late of this parish, 
and by her, who died in 1737 had [4 sons and 4 dau'2:htersl . John 
2^Iawbey above mentioned was the only son of Mr. William Mawbey 
of this parish, who died in 1733. seventh son of Erasmus ]\lawbey 
of Sherrton in the Co. of Leicester, only son of Richard Mawbey 
of South Kilworth, whose elder brother John, by Agnes, dau. of 
William Chamberlayne, Esq., of Leicester, was father of Erasmus 
Mawbey or Mautbew who in i^>43, joining the regiment of horse 
commanded l\v Sir Arthur Haselrigg. bart., with many recruits 
raised at his own expense, was soon afterwards killed at the battle 
of Roundway Down, near the Deviges in Wiltshire, valiantly fight- 
ing for the liberties of his country. His unfortunate death, his 
widow s second marriage, and his misfortunes brought on them by 
the Civil War, were greatly prejudicial to the interests of his family. 
John and Richard Mawbey were the eldest sons of William Mawbey. 
From Thomas, the third son. are descended the Mawbeys at this 
time of South Kilworth. The said William, with his brothers Rich- 
ard and Robert, the last of wliom was baj^t. at Sonth Kilworth (as 
appears by the Register of that parish) on 12 Maw 15^)1. were the 
sons of Richard ^fawbey, Es(|.. by ^^largaret. his wife, of South

the Co. of Xorfolk: Joseph Mawbey. Esq.. of Kennigton and 
Botleys, in the Co. of Surrey, sheriff, in 1757. for that connty and 
afterwards Member of Parliament for the Borough of Southwark. 
dedicated this monument in 1764. to the memory of his parents and 

"Seats of Great Britain." 2nd Series. \*ol. I., p. 116. Botlevs in 
the Co. of Surrey: "Sir Joseph Mawbey was descended from a familv 
in Xorfolk. where the village of Maltby (originally Maws-bv ) still 
marks the dwelling place of his Danish ancestors : and a ruined 
chapel at East Flegg exhibited at the close of the last centurv the 


tomb and effig\' of a Knight Templar named De Mauteby. The 
properU of the family being confiscated in the Civil Wars, they re- 
moved into Leicestershire. Colonel ^Nlawbey fell at the head of his 
volunteers in Sir Arthur Hesilrigg's corps at Roundway Down." 
"John Dryden wrote an epitaph for Margaret ^^lawbey Paston." 

Supplementary Xotes Pedigree I\'. 

I. It will be seen that Richard (i), brother of Simon de 
-Mauteby. had a son Robert ( 2 ), who had six sons, one was John (3 ). 
It seems very probable that this Juhn (3) was the Sir John Mall)ye 
of Mali)\e Hall, progenitor of the Malbyes of Stonham Aspall. 
Suffolk. See Pedigree \ .. as we see that Robert (2) gave to v^t. 
Mary of Sibton Priory. Suft'olk. The brother Matthew (3) is ver\ 
evidently he who accompanied the Earl uf Norfolk to Rome in 1245 ; 
and with "the King beyond the Seas" in 1242. A Matthew de 
Matebie held Essex lands about the time of I lenry 1 1 1. | 121 6- 1272). 
See Pedigree. 

II. Walter de Mauteby. Uloomfield gives under date 1228: 
"W alter de .Malteby coiu'eyed to Simon, the Prior, a messuage, etc., 
in llemsby and .\Iarcham ; the Prior conveyed to Walter all the land 
he had at Becham except adowson." Ouer\- : Is this Walter ( 2 ) ?" 

HI. In 1229 the Cal. Pat. Rolls mentions Roberto Malteby 
and in 1235 and 1242 we tind Robert de Mauteby, one of the wardens 
to keep the peace at Yarmouth Fair. Perhaps Robert (3). 

I\'. Perhaps the following items pertain to Walter (4) : 1247. 
Walter de ^Mauteby had free warren (Xorfolk). See also under 
dates 1249, ^-53' ^-5^^- 1270, 1272. 

IX. Sir John m. Agnes . Bloomfield states imder date 

1396: "Sir John de Mauteby and Agnes, his wife, enfeoffed Sir 
Adam Clifton in his manors of Mauteby, Winterton, East Somer- 
ton, etc., for the use of his eldest son, John, entail." In Pedi'2:ree 
I\'-A the record reads: "Sir John ]\Iawtby m. Elianor (Elen) dau. 
of Adam Clifton de Bokenham." These records are very confusing 
and quite beyond the compiler to untangle.

II Edmund Paston, youngest son. had Anne (12) Pas- 
ton. who m. William Y'elverton ; Constance (12), 
Margery (12), Dorothy (12) and Phillipa (i2> 


It will be seen that this pedigree and that of Mawbey, Botleys, Surrey, 
do not agree. For whereas both give the Paston descent, the names of wives, 
etc., are confused. The following footnotes are confusing: 

Suffolk, Edward III., reign [1327-1377] : "Sir Robert Mauteby. lord and 
patron, succeeded by Sir John de Mauteby. soti of Sir John de Mauteby, Kt. 
(1374j. See Pedigree VIII. This is evidently Sir John (7), who m. Elianor, 
dau. of Adam Clifton, and Robert (6) was probably his uncle, who, failing 
male issue, the estates reverted to John, son of Sir John, Kt." A note also 
states Margaret Mawtbye "possessed the Manors of Sparham. Gresham. etc.'' 

In this connection we append a short pedigree, taken. I think, from 
Bloomfield : 
I. Simon de Mawbey uMaltby. Co. Norfolk) 1198. 

Descended from him were : 
Sir John Mawbey, who d. 14(J3. 
Sir John Mawbey. whose dau. Alianore m. Sir William Calthorpe. (This 

should be Sir John, son of Sir Robert (10). Pedigree IV.) 
John de Mawby, whose dau. and heiress. Margaret, m. John Paston, ancestor 

of Ex. Earl of Yarmouth. 
Descended from above: Thomas Mautby, Esq., of Sparham. 

Here again is confusion of names in the descent. 

Descended from this union was Sir William Paston of Paston. and 
Oxncad (Created Baronet. 1642) and his son. Sir Robert Paston, who was 
created Viscount Yarmouth and subsequently Earl of Yarmouth. The Pas- 
tons of Paston, Co. Norfolk, settled there soon after the Conquest. Their 
arms were: Az. 6 fleur de lys az., a chief indented or. (Vide Burke's Cicn. 
Arm., 3rd Edit.) 

Margaret Mauteby Paston is the author of the famous "Paston Letters," 
which are most valuable and instructive, giving clear pictures of times, cus' 
toms, feelings, etc., of English life in the Fifteenth Century, and should most 
certainly be of interest to all Maltbys.

\'III. According to Bloomfield, p. 22j, the will of Robert 
Matiteby. Esq., 1413, mentions wife Eleanor (Alianore), son John, 
son and heir ; his brother John : daughter Eleanor ; a nun : daughter 
Agnes; sons, Walter, Peter. Thomas, underage, and his wid. m. 
1442, Thomas Chambers, lord of Sparham in her right. 

Supplementary Xotes to Pedigree Xo. I\'. 

X'orfolk Pedigree. (Before Conquest ?) 

From Bloomfield's Hist, of Xorfolk : "The ]\Ianor (or Lord- 
ship) of ]\Ialtby or ^lautby, Co. Xorfolk. was in existence before 
the Conqtiest. When Wiston the (Saxon ?) tenant was expelled." 
Further Bloomfield says : "A family zcho took their name from the 
the town were early enfeoffed of it by the Crown. In 1198 Simon 
de ]\Iaudeby had interests in the ^lanor of ]\Ialtby. Also a \\'alter 
de ]\Ialteby in 1166, had dealings respecting land (Becham Manor) 


with Simon, the Prior of Norwich. In 1284, a Walter de IMallety 
or ]\Iautby described as Lord of Alaheby also had dealings respect- 
ing Becham Manor lands with the prior of Norwich Monastery."' 
From this I conclude that the name ]\Ialtby (of Maltby, Co. Norfolk) 
was adopted by this family before 1166. I also take "early enfe- 
offed" to mean that the family were probably enfeoffed by the 
Crown soon after the Crown took possession of it, say temp. Will. I., 
or \y\\\. II. — probably AA'ill. I. Contributed Note by Edward Wells

:MALTBY-PAST0X (Addenda) 

Since writing the above a few interesting notes concerning this 
family were found in a deliq-htful book, "The X^orfolk Broads," hv 
\\'. A. Dutt. and seem well worth quoting in this book. On page 
194 is the following:: "A by-road branchins: oft southeast from the 
Ormsby road where it skirts the village green leads to ^Mautby, a 
parish borderino: the Bure. Here a2:ain we come in touch with the 
Pastons, for ^Iaro:aret Paston. whose letters are the most deli^hful 
in the famous collection, was a daughter of John de ^lauteby, who 
held the manor in the middle of the fifteenth century. Undeniably, 
it is Margaret Paston who gives life to the Letters, which although 
invaluable to students who would acquaint themselves with the con- 
ditions of life in England during the reigns of the kings of the 


houses of York and Lancaster, would be somewhat dry reading if 
it were not for her love for her lord and careful guardianship of 
his interests. Her fond love for her children, too, is often mani- 
fested though there are times when we might think her mercenary 
if we failed to understand the customs of the age in which she lived. 
For instance she writes to her 'right worshipful husband" as fol- 
lows : 'I was at Norwich this week to purvey such things as needeth 
me this winter; and I was at my mother's, and while I was there, 
there came in one Wrothe, a kinsman of Elizabeth Clere. and he 
saw your daughter, and praised her to my mother, and said she 
was a goodly young woman ; and my mother prayed him for to get 
for her a good marriage if he knew of any : and he said he knew 
one . . . the which is Sir John Cley's son, that is Chamberlain 
with my Lady of \"ork, and he is of age eighteen years old. If 
ye think it to be for to be spoken of, my mother thinketh that it 
should be got for less money now in this world than it should be 
hereafter, either that one or some other good marriage.' From 
this epistle it might be imagined that Dame Margaret considered 
mutual love an unessential adjunct of matrimonial contracts: but 
elsewhere she reveals a kindly interest in a love-sick maiden. \\Tit- 
ing to her son. Sir John l^aston, who was probably with King 
Edward TW at l\)mfret at the time, she says, 'I would you should 
speak with W'ckis fW'ykcs. an usher of the King's Chamber), and 
know his disposition to Jane W'alsham. She hath said, since he 
departed hence, but (unless) she might have him. she would never 
rnarry. her heart is so sore set on him. she told me that he said 
to her that tlierc was no woman in tlie world lie loved so well. I 
would not he sliould Jape her. for she meaneth good faith.' But. 
I'ke a careful match-maker, she is anxious that her youn^ friend's 
matrimonial pros])ects should not be entirely marred by this usher 
who loved and rode away, for she adds. "If he will not have her let 
me know in liaste, and 1 shall ]iurvey for her in otherwise.' Then 
the careful mother shows herself, for she goes on to say, 'As for 
your harness and gear that you left here, it is in Daubeney's keep- 
ing, it was never removed since your departing, because that he had 
rot the keys. I trow it shall get injured unless it be taken heed 
to betimes. ... I sent your irrey horse to Ruston to tlie farrier, 
and he saith he sliall never be noucrht to ride, neither right good to 
plow not to cart : he saith he was splayed, and his shoulder rent 
from the body. I know not what to do with him.' This letter wa> 
conveyed to her son by the rector of Filby, as appears from a 
postscript: 'I would you should make much of the parson of Filby, 
the bearer hereof, and make him good cheer if you may." Delight- 


fill Dame Margaret! Her gentle wraith seems to haunt the meadi 
of her Caister'^' home. She was buried in ^Nlautby Church, in ac- 
cordance with the instructions of her will, in which she desires to 
be interred *in the aisle of that church at Mawteby. in which aisle 
rest the bodies uf divers of mine ancestors;' and that 'under a 
scutcheon of arms* should be inscribed the words. 'God is my trust.* 
Her tomb has vanished with the south aisle in which it stood ; but 
at the south end of the nave is a marble tomb and cross-legged 
effigv of Sir \\ alter de Mantebv. one of her ancestors who died in 

**\\'ithin the bounds uf the parish is a boat ferry on the Bure. 
It is called Mautby Swim, being one of the spots where cattle used 
to swim across the river to and from the marshes. ... At 
Mautb\- are some ancient memorials of the Mawtebx' family, in- 
cluding the earliest existing- in liroadland ])robal)ly. ..." 

* Caister * u>ile. (Page 196). This castle is one of the oldest brick 
houses in England, and was built by Sir John Fastolff, who lived there 
in great state until lie died in 1459. At his death the castle came in to 
possession of John Paston; but Thomas Mowbray, the powerful Duke of 
Norfolk asserted that 'Sir John had given him Caister and that he would 
have it plainly"; and in 1469 he laid siege to the castle. Its defenders 
numbered only twenty-eight, but they seem to have made a gallant de- 
fence. In the end, however, •"from sore lack of victual and gun pow'der," 
tliey were compelled to surrender. Lengthy legal proceedings ensued. 
Margaret Paston in a letter to her liusband, writes: "My Lord of Nor- 
wich said to me that he would not have abide the sorrow and trouble 
that you have 'abyden' to win all Sir John Fastolff's goods." But the 
]>uke retained possession until his death, when the king confirmed John 
Paston's right to the estate, and until 1599 the castle was the chief seat 
of the Pastons family. In that year they removed to the fine Hall Clement 
Paston had built at Oxneadt. ... In its original state it was a large 
quadrangular building containing, besides the state apartments, twenty-six 
large rooms. It was surrounded by two moats, the inner containing the 
greater part of the buildings of which there are ruins remaining, the outer 
a college which, though founded by Fastolff, was not erected until the 
Paston's time. The chief entrance — a square, ornamented gateway — was 
on the west side. The principal remaining portions on the north and 
west walls, and a circular tower, about ninety feet high, at the northwest 
corner of the quadrangel. These ruins are surrounded by the inner moat. 
Of the outer moat there are no traces; but some walls and a small round 
tower embodied in a house adjoining the ruins undoubtedly formed part 
of the castle; and with the college buildings, were contained within the 
outer moat. . . . Caister Castle is one of the most interesting ruins in 
Norfolk. Seen as it is against a background of fine trees growing beyond 
the moat, Its tower and walls are strikingly picturesque. 

t Again writing of the Pastons says (page 16): "Vanished, too, is that 
stately hall at Oxnead which Clement Paston, a distinguished naval com- 
mander of the reign of Henry VIII. built and in which King Charles IT. 
was sumptuously entertained. . . ." (page 153): '-Jn 1676, when it was 
occupied by Robert Paston. Viscount Yarmouth, King Charles II., jour- 
neyed to it from Norwich and was lavishly entertained, an immense ban- 
queting hall being built specially for the occasion."

The following account of Sir Nicholas Malby is taken from the 
Dictionary of National Biograph\-. \'ol. NNNW, p. 395: 

MALBY, Sir Nicholas ( 1530?- 1584) president of Connaiight, 
descended from an old Y'orkshire family of that name, was 1). prob- 
ably about 1530. In 1556 his name appears in a list of persons 
willing to take part in the plantation of Leix, in Ireland. (State 
Papers. Ireland, r^Iar\- I.. 21 ) On 6 August. 1562. he was found 
guilty (jf coining, and with three of his associates, was condemned 
to death (Machyn, Diary, p. 290 j. He was, however, reprieved on 
consenting to serve under Ambrose Dudley, Earl of W^arwick. in 
France (State Papers, Dom. Eliz. NNIW. 41). His letters show 
him to have been a man of education and intelligence, and in April. 
1563. he is described as Warwick's secretary (Cal. State Papers, 
Fr. \ 111.. 294). He served with credit during tlie war. and in 
1565 was sent to Spain, where he was commended fur his judicious 
conduct by Phayre, the English minister at Madred (Ibid IN., 520). 
( )n his return to England he was sent to Ireland, and was shortly 
after appointed sergeant-major of the army by Sir Henry Sidney 
(Cal. Fiants Eliz. No. 1191 ). 

After the death of Shane O'Neill in 1567, he was stationed at 
Carrick-fergus in order to assist Captain Piers in keeping the Scots 
of the Clynns in check (Ibid No. 1196). He was reproved 1)y the 
lord justices fur distraining Sir Brian AlacPhelim O'Neill's anrl other 
Irishmen's castles for cess, but his conduct was justified by Sir 
Henry Sidney (State Papers. Ireland, Eliz. NNII.. 28.37). 

His position was a difficult one, and he complained that he had 
to feed his men at the cost of his carcass (Ibid NNITI.. 37-39), but 
he displayed considerable tact in his mana-^ement of Sorley Boy 
MacDonnel ( q. v.). and Sidney, on visitin^: the north in October. 
I s68, foimd the charge committed to him in verv good state ( Ibid 
NNVI. 12). 

In July. 1569. he was sent to the assistance of Sir Peter Carew 
(q V.) a2:ainst the Butlers (Hooker's "Life of Sir P. Carew. ed. 
]\Iaclean." p. 92) and in a skirmish near Carlow, he was severely 
hurt by a fall from his horse. He was warmlv commended for his 
bravery and niilitary skill by Sir W. Fitzwilliam and Sir Edward 
Fitton. and on 22 ^larch. 1571. he obtained a grant of the office of 
collector of customs of Strangford. Ardglass and Dundrum (Cal. 
Fiants.. Eliz. No. 1772). 

In the sprint: of 1571 he visited Eno^land. He stron^^ly ad- 
vocated colonizins: the north of Ireland with Englishmen as the best 


means of preventing the growth of a Scottish power in those parts 
(State Papers, Ireland, EHz. XXIII., 37 j. And on 5 Oct., 1571, 
he obtained a grant of MacCartan's country, corresponding to the 
modern barony of Kinelarty. in County Down, on condition that 
he planted it with civil and loyal subjects before 28 ^.larch, 1579. 
On his way back to Ireland in February, 1572. he captured a Span- 
ish ship in the Channel (Ibid XXX\'., 22. 23). On 10 April, he 
received a commission to execute martial law in MacCartan's 
county, but the indiscretion of Thomas Smith in publishing his 
scheme for the plantation of the Ardes Upper Clandeboye, by put- 
ting the Irish on their guard, placed insuperable obstacles in the 
way of realizing his plan. He succeeded in reducing Sir Brian 
O'Xeill to temporary submission in October. 1572, and in the fol- 
lowing month captured that chieftain's youngest daughter, but, not- 
withstanding his utmost exertions in conjunction with Smith, and 
at a later period with Walter Devereaux, Earl of Essex (q. v.) he 
failed to establish himself permanentlv in the countrv assigned to 
him (Ibid XXXMII, 26. 38: XXXIX., 4:^: XLII., vS : XLMIL, 


His efforts were, however, warmly appreciated by Essex, and 
though, as \\'aterhouse said, a man of few word and an ill courtier, 
but of great reputation among soldiers (Ibid XLIX.. i ) he was 
chosen by him to report to the privy council on the situation of 
aft'airs in the north in December, 1574 ( Ibid XIA'TTI., 66). 

He returned to Ireland on 5 May, 1575. with special instruc- 
tions for the Earl of Essex, and with an order for his own admis- 
sion to the privy council (Cal. Carew M. S. S. II.. 4-7). He had 
made a good impression on Leicester and W'alsingham, who recom- 
mended him to the queen for the government of Connau.2:ht, but 
several months elapsed before this recommendation took effect (Col- 
lins, Sidnev Papers, I.. 70). During the summer of that year he 
took part in Essex's expedition against Sorley P)oy, and may pos- 
sibly have assisted at the massacre of the MacDonnells on the island 
of Rathlin (Devereaux, Lives of the Earls of Essex, I., p. 108-17). 

He accompanied Sir Henry Sidney into Connaught in Sept , 
1576, and having been knighted by him on 7 Oct. ( cf Cal. Carew 
yi. S. S. II.. 149, where 1578 is evidently a mistake for \^'j(^^.) 

[Xote by the Secretary — Shaw's Book of Kniijhts, p. 'jj, has 
the following: "Sir Xicholas Malby. chief of the Commissioners of 
Connaught — Knighted at Athlone (Ireland 7 Oct. 1576."] He 
was appointed colonel or military governor of that province (Col- 
lins. Sidney Papers. I.. 120). As soon as he had established him- 
self firmly in his government, Malby proceeded against John and 


Ulick Uurke, sons of the Earl of Clanricarde. It was in the dead 
of winter, but for twenty-one days, he harried their countries with 
fire and sword, sparing neither young nor old (State Papers, Ire- 
land, Eliz. L\'II., 40 j. The vigor he displayed, and the success 
that attended his efforts, drew from Sidney, who was at tirst doubt- 
ful of his qualifications for the post, unstinted praise ( Collins. Sid- 
ney Papers, I., 151, 166). 

His strict observance of military discipline and his impartial 
administration of justice gained for him the respect of the soldiers 
and natives alike ( Bagnell, Ireland under the Tudors, II., 339). 

On 19 ^lay, 1577, he was placed on the commission for eccle- 
siastical causes (Cal. Fiants, Eliz. Xo. 3047). In October, after 
arranging a feud between O'Conor Don and ^NlacDonough, he, at 
O'Conor Sligo's request, attacked the castle of Bundrowes and 
having captured it from O'Donnell. restored it to O'Conor Sligo. 
But not having much confidence in the loyalty of the latter, he 
api)ointed Richard MacSwnie sheriff" of the county of Sligo. He 
had hardly turned his back when O'Donnell invaded the county, 
slew the sheriff" and l^esieged Bundrowes, compelling him to re- 
trace his steps. He drove O'Donnell out of the county, but was 
unable to overtake him. (Annals of Loch Ce, LL., 415-19.) At 
Sligo, on his way back to Roscommon, he came to terms with Brian 
O'Rourke, but the arrangement did not last long, owing to 
O'Rourke's refusal to expel certain coiners he maintained. In April, 
1578, ^lalby invaded his country, captured his chief castle, and put 
the entire garrison to the sword (Collins, Sidney Papers, I., 249). 
In connection with this episode, and considering his own antecedents, 
it is curious to find Malby about this time interceding with Walsing- 
ham for his friend Thomas Bavand of Liverpool, suspected of coin- 
ing (State Papers, Ireland, Eliz. LIX., 48). 

In the autimm of 1578 he repaired to England, returning to 
Ireland in ^lay, 1579, with the higher title of president of Con- 
naught (Cal. Carew M. S. S.. II.. 154). After the failure of Essex's 
colonization project, his grant of ]\IacCartan's country had been, by 
Sidney's advice, revoked (Collins, Sidney Papers, I.. 76) but in 
consideration of his recent services, and the losses he had formerly 
sustained, he on 12 April, 1579, received a grant of the manor and 
lordship of Roscommon, together with an annual rent of £200 out 
of the composition paid by the O'Farrells. and certain lands in 
Longford (]\Iorrin. Cal. Pat. Rolls. II.. 17). During his absence 
in England his officers and soldiers behaved badly, but Cbnnaught 
remained tranquil (State Papers. Ireland. Eliz. LXA'I.. 67, 68). So 
firmly established, indeed, was the peace of the province, that on the 


outbreak of James Fitzniaurice's rebellion in July, Malby, with six 
hundred well-furnished troops, marched to Limerick to co-operate 
with the lord justice. Sir William Drwry (q. v.). Owing to Drwry's 
illness the task of suppressing- the rebellion devolved mainly upon 
him. He displayed commendable zeal in prosecuting the rebels and 
on 3 October he defeated Sir John and Sir James of Desmond at 
]\Ionasteranenagh in county Limerick (Ibid LXIX., 17-52, IvXVIIL, 
45). He strongly suspected the Earl of Desmond of disloyalty, and 
after several uneffectual efforts (Ibid LXIX., 52; I., IX.) to secure 
his co-operation, treated him as a rebel, while Desmond, without 
much reason, complained that ^lalby's severity was a chief cause 
of his rebellion (Ibid LXIX., 70; LXXVIL, 52). 

On the arrival of the Earl of Ormonde in X^ovember with a 
commission to command the army in Munster, ]\Ialby returned to his 
charge in Connaught. He belonged to the Leicester faction, and 
for this and other more personal reasons bore no good-will to Or- 
monde, whom he subsequently charged with misrepresenting his 
services in Munster, and with abetting disorder in Connaught. 
With the exception of Richard Burke, called Richard of the Iron, 
or Iron Dick, none of the Connaught chiefs had shown any active 
sympathy with the ]\Iunster rebels. 

In February, 1580, Malby invaded his country and drove him 
to seek safety among the islands in Clew Bay. After suffering the 
most terrible privations, Richard of the Iron submitted to the ijarri- 
son at Bunishoole ( I1)id LXXIL, 39). During the siege of Carrig- 
foyle, ]\Ialby assisted the operations of the lord justice. Sir \\'illiam 
Pelham (q. v.) with supplies from Connaught ( Cal. Carew M. S. S., 
II., 238). In August ( )'Rourke, animated bv the expectation of 
foreign assistance, rebelled and dismantled the castle of Leitrim. 
Alalby immediately took the field against him, repaired and garri- 
soned the castle, and routed the rebels (Ibid II., 297). Then hasten- 
ing to Dublin to the assistance of the lord deputy, Arthur, Lord Grey 
of Wilton (q. v.) against Baltinglas and Eragh ^lacHugh O'Byrne 
(q. V.) he witnessed the disastrous defeat of the Ens^lish forces at 
Glenmalure (State Papers, Ireland, Eliz. LXX\'., 79, 82). But 
the news that O'Rourke was again in arms compelled him, in spite 
of ill-health, to return at once to Connaught ( Ibid LXXA'L, 15 ; Cal. 
Carew M. S. S., II., 310). To those who complained that he used 
the sword too sharplv in his government, he replied that if the queen 
did not use it more sharply she would lose both sword and realm 
(Ibid II., 314). O'Rourke fled at his approach (State Papers, Ire- 
land, Eliz. LXXA'IL, 54) but a new danfjer instantly presented it- 
self in the rebellion of lohn and Ulick Burke, who. at the instillation 


of the catholic bishop of Kilmacduagls, had proclaimed a religious 
war, and were making wild efforts to relieve the Spaniards at Lim- 
erick (Ibid LXXMIL. 41). 

Even after the capture of Limerick the situation was sufficiently 
alarming to cause Grey to send reinforcements to ^lalby (Ibid 
LXXX'IIL, 59 j but by the end of January, 1581, the latter an- 
nounced that he had been so far successful against the rebels that 
they dare not look abroad, but, like wild wolves, keep to the woods 
and mountains. O'Rourke, as usual, took advantage of the situa- 
tion, and invaded Roscommon, but ]\Ialby sent Captain Brabazon 
against him, and O'Rourke at once sued for peace { Cal Carew ^L S. 
S., IL, 320 j. Toward the end of Februar\" a body of six hundred 
Scots invaded the province to co-operate with the Burkes, but ]\Ialb\' 
had timely notice of the arrival and before the latter could join 
them he attacked them, and after killing a number of them, drove 
them across the Moy. At Strade Abbey, in the county Mayo, he 
decided a controversy between Richard of the Iron Burke and 
Richard MacOliver, allowing the title of ]\IacWilliam to the former, 
and making the latter the sheriff of the county of Alayo. (See 
Malbv's graphic description of his journev in State Papers, Ireland, 
Eliz. LXXXL, 421 ; and also in Colton M. S. S., Titus, B. Xlil. ff*. 

Important as were his services, it was grievous. Grey com- 
plained, to see good Sir X'^icholas Malby so thanklessly used (State 
Papers Ireland, Eliz. LXXXII., 48). He was anxious to lay his 
case before the Queen personally, and in May he agreed to a short 
peace with the Burkes (Ibid LXXX\'III., 10) but on the outbreak 
of hostilities between Turlough Linneach O'Xeill and Sir Hugh 
O'Donnell in July, he was ordered to the assistance of the latter. 
He marched as far as Lifford, and having destroyed the town, 
eft'ected a junction with the lord deputy (Ibid LXXXV., 47; Annals 
of Loch Ce LL., 441). Towards the close of X^ovember he went 
to England to report on the general situation of affairs in Ireland. 
But, so far as he was personally concerned, his visit was not suc- 
cessful. His enemies charged him with violent, tyrannical and cor- 
rupt conduct in his administration, and Elizabeth showed a dis- 
position to listen to the charge. He returned to Ireland on 21 [May, 
1582, and was warmly welcomed by his brother officers. During 
his absence Connaught, except for some slight disturbance, created 
by ]\Iac\\^illiam, had remained tranquil. Early in July, however. 
Con O'Donnell, at the instis^ation of Turlough Linneach, invaded 
Sligo. ]\Ialby complained that the order forbiddins: him to raise 
men by cessing them on the country rendered him powerless to meet 


this danger. But O'Conor Sligo behaved weh, and at ]\Ialby's ap- 
proach O'Donnell decamped in such haste that some of his men 
were drowned in crossing the Erne (State Papers, Ireland, Ehz. 
XCIV.. 15-20-32). 

After this nothing occurred during his lifetime to disturb the 
peace of his government. 

The fear of 3>Ialby. wrote Bonraby Gooche to Burghley in 
2^Iarch, 1583, keeps all in good order, his "common dalliance" is 
"veni, vidi, vici." (Ibid C, 14.) 

But he was deeply wounded by Ehzabeth's neglect. His dis- 
grace and his debts, he declared, would kill him. His constitution, 
naturally robust, had been undermined by rough service, and on 4 
]\Iarch, 1584, he died at Athlone. (Ibid CIX., 6.) "There came 
not to Erin in his own time, nor often before, a better gentleman 
of the Foreigners than he, and he placed all Connaught under bond- 
age . . . and executed many works, especially in the courts of 
the towns of Athlone and Roscommon." ( Annals of Loch Ce, H., 
459.) '*He was a man learned in the languages and tongues of the 
islands of the west of Europe, a brave and victorious man in battles." 
(Annals of the Four ^Masters, S. A. 1584.) His official letters, re- 
markable for their vigorous and graphic style, fully confirm this 

]\[alby niarried Thomasine, daughter of Robert Lamb of Leeds, 
whose wife was a Castell of the Castells of East Hatley in Cam- 
bridgeshire (State Papers, Ireland, Eliz. XCL, 59). By her he had 
a son Henry, who succeeded him. and married Elizabeth, grand- 
daughter of Sir Francis Jobson, lieutenant of the tower, and was 
killed apparently in Xovember 1602, while serving in Connaught. 
and a daughter, L'rsula, who was married to Anthony Brabazon 
(Irish Pedigrees. Harl. 'M. S. 1425. f. 157). Lady ^Malby subse- 
quently married one George Rawe.

XoTE. — The ''Visitation of Essex" has the following item: "Persall 
Jobson married, first to Henry Malby of Ross in Ireland.'' Is this Captain 
Henry Malby, son of Sir Nicholas Malby. who is said to have married 
Elizabeth, granddaughter of Sir Francis Jobson? 


A descendant writes that some years ago she read in a news- 
paper under the English correspondence that Dihion, the great Irish 
leader, was to speak at Great ]\Ialtby — suggesting that there were 
two towns of ^laltby. Possibly Great ]\Ialtby is in Ireland. Xorth- 
west of Limerick the map of Ireland shows 3*tal Bay. This may 
have been so named long before Sir Nicholas ]\Ialby was born, but 
i[ would be interesting to know certainly, as it seems not unlikel}' 
the bay was named for Sir Nicholas. 


The following account is taken from "Annals of the Four 
^Masters," A. D. 1584: 

"Sir Nicholas ^Nlalby, governor of the province of Connaught, 
died in Athlone, about Shrovetide ; he was a man learned in 
languages and the tongues of the islands of \\'estern Europe, a 
valiant and battle-triumphant man, throughout Ireland, Scotland 
and France, in the service of his Sovereign and that was a profit- 
able service for him, for he received a suitable payment from the 
Queen, the Governorship of the Province of Connaught for seven 
years before his death, with Rosconimon and Beal-atha-na-Sleiaig- 
headh ( Ballinasloe in Galway ) in perpetuity to himself and his heirs 
in succession : but, however, it was from the sons of the Earl of 
Clarvickard he first procured Ballinasloe." 

XoTE. — A third account of Sir Nicholas Malby and 2vlalbys connected 
with Ireland, follows. It is compiled from miscellaneous notes gathered by 
the author. 

Yorkshire — Ireland 

Arms: Alalbv (Sir Nicholas, chief commissioner of Connaught, 
knighted at Athlone, Ireland, by Sir Henry Sidney, lord deputy of 
Ireland. 7 October, 1576.) Argent, on a bend between two cotises 
gules three garbs or. (Burke's General Armory.) See under Alaltby 

It is quite evident from these arms that Sir Nicholas Malby believed 
himself to be descended from the IMaltbys of Cleveland, Yorkshire. The 
name of his father is not known. Sir Nicholas wrote that, his father died 
when he was four years old. The Diet, of Nat. Biog. states : "Malby was 
born probably about 1530." It has seemed not unlikely to the compiler that 
he is the Nicholas Malby mentioned in the will of John Maltby, 17 ^lay, 
1532. (See under that date.) In any case it is worth noting. 


Of his early life we know nothing. The first record found con- 
cerning Nicholas Malbv is in 1562 (Domestic Papers, p. 206). It 
reads : 

1562. "A list of prisoners in the Tower (of London), 5 Sept., 
1562, including Lady Katharine Grey, Earl of Hertfordshire,, etc. 
Sept. 20.- — The Queen to the Sheriffs of London. Reprieve for 
Tho. Borough and Nicholas Malby who are to be delivered over 
to the Earl of ^^^arwick for service abroad."" (Cal. State Papers, 
Dom., edit. Lemon.)

March, 1579, with abstract. (Domestic Eliz. A^ol. CXXX., Xo. 
10. Cal. p. 620. ) 

Note. — Sir Nicholas Malby was evidently in England at this time, as 
the Diet. Nat. Biog. states that, " in the autumn of 1578 he repaired to Eng- 
land, returning to Ireland in May, 1579, with the higher title of President 
of Connaught." The Gabriel is. very evidently, a ship ; "these men" may 
have been sailors or soldiers. 

1580. Oct. 2^. Athlone, Ireland. Sir Nicholas ^lalbie writes to 
Walsingham that his brother John may be sent over with charge 
of soldiers. 

Note. — See Diet. Nat. Biog. "Even after the capture of Limerick, the 
situation was sufficiently alarming to cause Grey to send reinforcements to 
Malby."' Query. Does this "brother John" refer to a brother of Sir Nicholas 
or to a brother of Walsingham's? If, as it would appear, it refers to John, 
a brother of Sir Nicholas, this would be additional proof that they were 
sons of the John Maltby who made his will in May, 1532. That Sir Nicholas 
had a brother we know. See under date May, 1582.

Query : Does this refer to a brother of Sir Nicholas, or to his own 
brother? Evidently the latter, as he would hardly write expressing sorrow 
for the misdeeds of Sir Nicholas* brother.

X'icholas ]\Ialby by Durgley, showing connection by marriage 
with Robert Lamb of Leeds and Robert Castell of East Hatley, 
near Potton in Cambridgeshire. 

XoTE. — A copy of this pedigree was made at the British Museum by a 
friend, and as the ancient handwriting is practically undecipherable by all 
but an expert, a translation was added; this may not be entirely correct, but 
is given here as it was transcribed.

have been very old. This item is from Cal State Papers.

George coming to England to sue for relief was im justly im- 
prisoned by one Luke Xighteuf^ale and died in great miser\- in 
the Fleet. Lord Ranelagh still refuses endeavors to obtain a 
grant for his [Majesty to establish his possessions by which pe- 
titioners will not only be disinherited, but utterly ruinated. They 
pray that the Lord Lieutenant may call Lord Ranela<:z'h before 
them. Also that Lord Ranelagh grant may h^ stayed. Reference 
to the Lord Lieutenant and order for stay of grant. ( l^rinted 
State Papers, p. 749.) 

1649. Samuel Maltby served in Arm\- in Ireland since i^HO- i'l 
Captain Richard Franklin's Troop of Lord Deputy Fleetwood's 
Regiment. Since 1649 (to 1662 ?*). (p. 657, Cal. State Papers, 
Ireland. 1660-1662. edit. l)y Mahaffy. ) 

This note is of interest, being a Samuel Maltby contemporary with the 
emigrant William Alaltby who named a son Samuel Maltby. Also the con- 
nection in Ireland is worthy of note, as he may have been descended from 
John Malby. brother of Sir Nicholas. 

1663-1665. Cal State Papers. Ireland, edit, by Mahaffy, p. 352, 
says: "Queen Elizabeth by letters dated 2 June. 21st year of her 
reign [1579] granted to Sir Nicholas Malthby (Maltby) Kt., 
]\Ianor of Lordship of Roscommon and the late dissolved Mon- 


asterie : also the Monastery of Longford. In 13 Jas. I., the Ros- 
common property was granted to Edmond ]^Iiddop. The inter- 
est of Sir George Alalthby and his heirs did not expire until 1639." 
Repudiated in 1665. ( Mde p. 600. Cal. State Papers. Ireland, 
1663-65. edit. MahalTy.) 
It would be of great interest to know to just what this reference 
refers, as 1663-65 is the date at which we first find John ^laltby, 
the emigrant, in Xew England, leaving a tradition of "confiscated 
lands, an ancestor (i.e.. prob. relative), a captain in wars for and 
against the crown." the usual mixed up tradition ; one being that. 
"the family were almost royal." It is very evident that the Xew 
England Maltbys were not descendants of Sir Nicholas, but it may 
be that they were distantly related. Could it be that they believed 
themselves co-heirs to the above estate, even though not closely 

The Peera*^e of Ireland b\- Lodge. \'ol. 4. p. 234, says "and 
left Sir Nicholas Malby, Gov. of Connaught, possessed of the Ihjuse 
of Roscommon and Athlone."

1818. I Sept. "Lady Morgan ( au authoress) visted her relatives,

well to give the following pedigree from Harleian Soc. Pub.. 1003,

3 A\'illiam Morgan. 

There is a space of two hundred years between this marriage 
of Richard Morgan and IMargaret ]\Ialtby. to Lady Morgan who 
visited Sir ]\Ialtby and Lady Crofton. yet it is of interest as the 
genealogist finds that of a truth history repeats itself, and where 
cne family intermarries with another in the course of a few genera- 
tions, another intermarriage occurs between descendants, who are 
distant cousins. 

The following references are of interest in connection with these 
Irish notes: pp. 690-694. Families in Ireland at the close of the 17th 


century. Irish Pedio^rees by O'Hart, Vol. II., has this statement: 
''According to the M. S. AVjIs. F-3, 23; F-3, 2"/, and F-4, 18, in 
Trinity College, Dublin, the families mentioned in this section were 
among the principal families in Ireland at the close of the 17th 
century. The reader will find in each of these three volumes much 
information in relation to the genealogies of the Anglo-Irish fam- 
ilies who settled in Ireland since the English invasion, which are not 
given in this work." Then follows the various families by name; 
that of Malby is given on page 694. 

It would be of immense value could the manuscripts referred 
to be examined, as here might be found a clue to the immediate 
family of Sir Nicholas Alalby. 

In Bagwell's Ireland, the Index gives: "]\IALTBY, Captain, 
afterwards Sir Xicholas," and on page 129: "Piers and Maltby at 
Carrick-fergus pleaded that they had neither ships nor men to 
guard thirty miles of coast night and day" : also page 132. On page 
2;^7^ we find: "^Nlaltby, a man of ability and discretion." Pa^^^e 245 
states : "great praise is due to Captain Piers and Captain Maltby for 
their ability and diligence." Again we find, p. 93 : "Alaltby refused 
ii,ooo for the prisoner's life, and a like sum for that of Tirlogh 
O'Brien, a noted rebel." 

XoTE. — i2,000 was a considerable fortune in the time of Sir Xicholas 

The Brabazon pedigree is here given as it shows the sort of 
families with whom the Sir Xicholas branch intermarried. The 
pedigree is from O'Hart's Irish Pedigrees, \'ol. II., p. 66:

XoTE. — The record concerning Sir Nicholas ]^Ialby in 1562 has "qr. of 
London." after his name. I am not sure whether this query was in the 
original record or if it was added by the friend who sent the copy of the 
record. Appended are the few stray early notes of ^laltbys in any way con- 
nected with Ireland.

Since these pages were written we have learned of an Irish 

branch of the familw but there was not sufficient time to obtain 

records from Ireland, consequently we can only print what data 

Mr. William H. Maultby had available. 



Tradition: "Forefathers went to Ireland with < )livtr Croni- 
well's army, 1649- 1650." Xote — This ancestor may verv povsiblv 
have been Samuel Maltby, who served in the Army in Ireland 
since 1649. See under tliat date. 

1. Arthur Warner Maultby resided in Cork. Ireland. He was an 
inspector of merchandise shipped from the city of Cork. It 
is an office, or appointment, from the British Crown. After 
his death. Henry ]\Iaultby (a cousin of \Mlliam H. Maultbv 
who furnished these records) received the appointment and 
was holding the office a few years ago, and very probably is 
still doing so.

liam H. ( emig^rated about 1831-32), John, Peter, Arthur War- 
ner and Henry. 

2. William H. ?^Iaultby, emigrated to the States about 1831-2. 
He went first to A'ermont fprobabl}' to \\'ashino:ton County). 
Shortly after 1835 he removed to Landsingburs:. Renssellear 
County, X. Y., and later moved to Sheboygan Coimty, Wich. 
He was prominent in the countv. being one of the chief or- 
ganizers and held the office of County Clerk and also that of 
Judge of Probate. 

John (2) IMaultby, brother of the above, emigrated to the 
States about 1840. He resided in Landsingburg with his 


brother, AX'illiain H.. for a while. He died at Waterford, Al- 
bany County, X. Y". 

Peter (2) .Maidtby, another brother, emigrated about 1840 
(?). Resided at Landsingburg for a time. Removed to Boon- 
ville, AIo., about 1842 and married there. Later he went to 
Kickapoo, Kansas. 

2. Arthur Warner (2) Maultby, emigrated to the States about 
1834. He resided in \>rmont with his brother William H. 
Alaultby, for a short while, then removed to Landsingburg,

The compiler has given no coat-of-arms to this branch of the 
family, for the reason that no proof has been found of a title to a 
coat-of-arms. However, it may be as well to state here that in all 
the various branches of the American descendants the coat-of-arms 
of the Yorkshire Maltbys has been handed down, and in the Inven- 
torv of the estate of Samuel ]\Ialtby (2). son of the emigrant \\\\- 
liam ]\Ialtbv, is found the mention of a "coat-of-arms." \'arious 
mottoes are used : "Mrtus sub pondere crescit." bein-T that used by 
the descendants of Col. Stephen (4) ^laltby and the descendants 
of his older brother. Gen. Isaac (4) use '"Ouod serveus metes."

Pedigree XI. 

Maltby of Orston 

The arms used by this branch of the Maltby family are : Argent, 
on a bend gules, three garbs or. Motto: "Praesto et Persisto." Mr. 


Brough ]\laltby has a fine old seal bearing the above arms, which has 
come down to him from many generations of ancestors. ]\Ir. Brough 
r^Iahby being the head of his House of Maltbv. 

While in London some years ago the compiler had the pleasure 
of meeting ]\Ir. and ^Irs. ]\Ialtby and their son, Brough ^Nlaltbv. 
junior, and seing some fine old ancestral portraits both of the Alalt- 
bys and B roughs which hang in his dining room and along the 
stairway. The portraits of those with Alaltby blood are instantly 
recognizable by the resemblance borne to the ^laltbys of this pres- 
ent time. 

We give at some length an account of Bishop Edward Maltby, 
who was of this family and it has seemed fitting to include a short 
genealogy of this branch of the family. The bulk of the material 
was compiled by Edwin ^Mortimer Blake of the University of 
Arizona. Tucson. Arizona. August 19, 1907. and now of Xew York 
City. Mr. Blake's wife is a descendant of William Maltby of Orston. 
Various items have been added by the present compiler, manv of 
them being records copied from the Shelton Registers by }^lv. E. C. 
Harte. Some have been furnished by descendants or ferrited out 
personally, and whereas still far from a complete record of the 
family it is a very valuable record, I have taken the liberty of 
changing yir. Blake's lettering o'f generations, in order to conform 
as far as possible to the same style used in all the pedigrees given 
in this book.

AMlliam ^klaltby. b. 1641, was a son of John and Mary

the children.) In 1670 we find Ezekiel Diglyn, parson of Orston, 
speaking of "\\'illiam ?^Ialtby, the elder, of Orston." This may 
mean that he was the father of William, b. 1641, or it may only 
refer to him as of an older generation.

IV. 37. WILLIA.M Maltby-Bibliographer. The following ac- 
count is from the Dictionary of National Biography. \'ol. NXX\'., 
p. 442: 

IV. 45. ELIZABETH Maltby, b. — : m. Sir George Prety- 
man Tomline. For a full account of Sir Georo:e see Vnl. LMI . d. 
14, Nat. Diog. Diet. Sir George Pretyman. b. ( )cl. <;. 1750: d. 
Nov. 14, 1827. was the son of George Pretyman of Burv St. Ed- 
munds, and his w.. Susan, dau. of John Hubbard. His father was 
from an old Suffolk family. In 1784, Sir George m. Elizabeth, 
eldest dau. and co-heiress of Thomas Maltby of Germans, Buck- 
inghamshire. Elizabeth Maltby, w. of Sir George, "was a woman 
of considerable ability and character, who was informed and con- 
sulted by her husband on all important political matters in which 
he was engaged." There is a portrait of Tomline. by J. Jacksrm, now 
in possession of Captain Pretyman of Rigby Hall, Lincolnshire, and 
an engraving by H. Meyer in the Gentleman's Magazine. 1899. A 
leter from Captain Pretyman to the compiler states that he has no 
further Maltby records other than those we already have. He 
mentions owning an old print which he believes to be a portrait of 
Miss ^Maltby, sister of Elizabeth ^laltby, who was his great-grand- 
mother. It would be interesting to secure a copy of this old print. 
The children of Sir George and Elizabeth ]\Ialtby were : 

\'. 70. \\'illiam (5) Edward Tomline. M. P. for Truro. 

\'. 71. George ( ^) Thomas Pret}'man. chancellor of 
Lincoln and prebendary of AA'inchester. 

\'. y2. Richard (5) Pretyman, precenter of Lincoln. 

XoTE. — Burke's Landed Gentry, supplement. Vol. III., p. 85, is in error 
when it states that. "Elizabeth Maltby m. Edward Tomline, D.D.. Bishop of 
Lincoln and \Vinchester," as this was her son. 

William ^Ialtby — Bibliographer — 1763- 1854 

"^falthv. William (1763-1854) bibliographer, b. in London, on 
17 January. 1763, was the youngest of the ten children of Brough 
^Maltby. a wholesale draper of ^lansion House Street. Edward 
Maltbv (q. v.), the Bishop of Durham, was his cousin. He was 
educated under the Rev. James Pickbourne at Hackney and there 
formed a life-long acquaintance with Samuel Rogers, a fellow pupil. 


He was the youthful companion of Rogers in his assault upon Dr. 
Johnson's knocker in Bolt Court, and shared his terror stricken 
flight before the great man's door could be opened. He proceeded 
to Gouville and Cains College, Cambridge, but being a dissenter 
did not take a degree. / 

He practiced law as a solicitor for several years in connection 
with his elder brother, Rowland ]\Ialtby, formerly clerk of the 
Fishmongers' Company. On 2^, June, 1787. he was called to the 
bar at Gray's Inn. His tastes were, however, literary, and on the 
death of Professor Porson in 1808, he succeeded him as principal 
librarian of the London Institution on i February, 1809. Here he 
was the means of making large additions to the library, more espe- 
cially in the bibliographical department. He had an extraordinary 
memory, knowledge of books and facility of quotation from classical 
and English literature. He twice superintended the removal of the 
books and twice directed their rearrangement, viz., in 181 1. from Sir 
Robert Clayton's house in the Old Jewry to King's Y^ard, Coleman 
Street, and in 1818 to 11 Finsbury Circus. He assisted in the com- 
pilation of the original catalogue, as well as in the first volume of 
a new edition. In 1834 he was superannuated from active duty, but 
was allowed the use of his apartments. He died at the London In- 
stitution on 5 January, 1854, and was buried in Norwood cemetery, 
where a tablet was erected to his memory l^y his old friend Rogers. 

^^laltby contributed to "Recollections of the Table Talk of Sam- 
uel Rogers," by the Rev. A. Dyee, 1856. an appendix entitled "Por- 
soniana," pp. 295-33-}. Times, 11 Jan., 1854, p. 8; Gent. Mag., 
1854, pt. I., pp. 209-210; Clayden's Early Life of Samuel Rogers, 
and Rogers and His Contemporaries.) G. C. B. 

IV. 46. HARRIET (4) ^laltby, b. 1763. According to 
Burke's Landed Gentry, \'ol. III., p. 85. Harriet ]\Ialtby was a sister 
and co-heiress of Elizabeth (4) and the reference states she "was 
living at Bath in 1847." This [Miss Harriet Maltby is evidently the 
lady whose portrait Captain Pretyman owns. In 'Alodern English 
Biography," Boase, \'ol. II., I\'., is given the following item: 
"IMaltby, Mrs. Harriet, b. 1763: a friend of W. Wilberforce, W. 
Pitt. Hannah More and other celebrities: a large contributor to 
the Bath charities. Died Royal Crescent, Bath, Dec. 1852." It is 
evident that this item shuld read Miss and not [Mrs. Maltbv. 

IV. 48. THOMAS (4) :Maltby. b. July 10. 1763. 

Note. — The following record I am not sure of. The Thomas (5) Maltbv 
whose record I give, was a ncphezc of Bishop Edward Maltby. and from the

able that he was a son of one of the other brothers. However we give :

M. 91. Un Xov. I, 19 10, a beautiful stained glass window in 
memory of the late Archdeacon Brough ]^Ialtby, sometime vicar of 
Farndon, was dedicated at Southwell Cathedral. There are already 
three stained glass windows in memory of other members of the 
family in the X'^orth Chapel of the Choir. One to ]\Iary ^Maltby, 
who d. Dec. 4, 1890 (See A'L, 92) ; one to Frances Caroline Maltby 
who d. ^lay 5, 1904; the third is not stated in the "X^ewark Adver- 
tiser," from which we quote. The inscription under the fourth 
window reads : "Ad Dei gloriam in memory of Brough ]\Ialtby, 
Archidiaconi de X^ottingham, Canonici Lincoln. A'icarri de Farndon. 
Dui obitapod Farndon iii Kal. April A. D.. ]vIDCCCXCR', annos 
natus LX\'III. Cujus animee propetietur Deus." The dedication 
service was conducted by the Rev. Canon C. Gray of West Retford. 
He attended the grammar school at Southwell ; was of St. John's 
Coll., Cambridge. Took holy orders in 1580: his first X'ott. cur. was 
in 1851. at Whatton : then came the Mcarage of Farndon, in 1864. 
Bishop \\'ordsworth singled him out for a Canonry at Lincoln in 
1 87 1, and in 1878, made him Archdeacon.

In concluding these genealogical notes of the Orston ^laltbys 
I wish to acknowledge the help given by ]\Ir. Edward C. Harte, who 
kindl}' copied numerous records in order to assist in compiling a 
fairly complete record of this family. 

What few early records we have from Orston are given below : 
1530. Richard Maltby held. A. D. 1530,, one ox gang of land in 

Orston, of Sir Richard Bozon, Kt. 
1555. ]\Iarch 10. Robert Maltbye of Orston. Will proved. 
1582. John Maltbie m. Elizabeth Greaves. 

Hugh Maltby had children: 
1584. Anna Maltby. 
1587. Abigail Maltby. 
1589. Johannes ]\Ialtby. 
1592. Petrus Maltby. 
1595. W'illmus Maltby. 
1600. Elizabeth Maltby. 
1604. Thomas Maltby. 


In 1670 Ann ]\Ialtbie and Thomas Wright were m. at Orston. 
(Query : Was this a sister of \\'illiam, who m. Jane Brough in 1682 ?) 
It will be noticed that he names a daughter Ann. 

Another item under date 1670 speaks of "William ^Ialtl)y. the 
elder, of Orston." It is probable that this is the father of William 
who m. Jane Brough. as he would have been but 29 years of age 
in 1670, and he could hardly have been the person alluded to as ''the 
elder." though of course it is quite as probable that "the elder" was an 
uncle, or even his grandfather. 

In 1 710 John ]\Ialtby m. Anne Kirk at Orston. She d 1721. 
Their children seem to have been : 

William ]\Ialtby. bapt. April 2^. 1714.

in 1890. We hope to learn something further of this branch of 
the family before long.

The following account of the life of Bishop Edward ^vlaltby 
is taken from the Dictionary of X'ational Biography, \'ol. XXXV., 
p. 440: 

Maltby. Edward (1770-T859L bishop of Durham, was b. in the 
parish of St. George of Tombland, X'orwich, on 6 April. T770. and 
bapt. on 8 April, by Samuel Bourn (1714-1796) (q.v.). His father. 

* Since ■writing the above Ave have learned that Henry Vice Maltbv -was 
b. Sept. 15. ISn. at Evington. Leicester, and bapt. Oct. 6. 1811. at St. Martin'.'? 
Church. Leicester. He had a brother .John and a sister Eliza, the latter 
unmarried. Henry V. Maltby mar. about 1835, Sarah Ann Dunkly. He died 
March 27, 1882, at Aston, Birmingrham. and was buried at Boldmere, War- 


George ^laltby (d. Aug., 1794, ae. 64) was a master weaver ana 
deacon of the Pres. congregation at the Octagon chapel. His first 
cousin, \Mniam, is noticed below. 

In 1779, ^laltby entered the Norwich grammar school, under 
Samuel Parr (q.v.) ; he was at the head of the school in 1785, when 
Parr resigned, and on Parr's advice he was then sent to Winchester, 
under Joseph Warton. According to Taylor, he was a pupil of 
William Enfield (q.v.) at Thorpe, near Xorwich ; if so, it must 
have been in preparation for Winchester. Bishop Pretyman, after- 
ward Tomline (q.v.) of Lincoln, who had m. a dau. of his uncle, 
Thomas Maltbv, entered him at Pembroke Hall, Cambridsre, wliere 
he had a distinguished career. 

He was Brown's medallist for epigrams in 1790, and for Greek 
ode in 1790 and 1791. In the latter year he obtained the Craven 
scholarship after a three weeks' contest. In 1792, he was chancellor's 
medallist and eighth wrangler. He grad. B. A., 1792; ]\I. A., by 
royal mandate, 1794; B. D., 1801 ; D. D., 1806. 

Pretyman made him his domestic chaplain and gave him a pre- 
bend at Lincoln, in addition to the vicarages of Buckden, Hunting- 
donshire, Holbeach, Lincolnshire, and Leighton Buzzard, Bedford- 
shire. A letter (19 July, 1817) from Parr to Canning, recommend- 
ing him as preacher at Gray's Inn, speaks of his Whig politics and 
his advocacy of Catholic emancipation, and describes him as "grave, 
unaffected and very impressive" in the pulpit. 

From 1824 to 1833, he was preacher at Lincoln's Inn. In 
September 1831 he was made Bishop of Chichester and was trans- 
lated to Durham in 1836. Before his appointment the palatinate 
jurisdiction of Durham was separated from the episcopal and vested 
in the crown (21 June, 1836). 

^^laltby's Greek scholarship is conspicuous in man\' of his ser- 
mons, but is best known by his useful labors in connection with 
Greek prosody and metre. At Durham he heartily entered into the 
scheme for the Durham L^niversity (charter granted June, 1837), ^^ 
which he ultimatelv left his valuable library. He was also a senator 
of the London University, and a fellow of the Royal and Antiquarian 

In politics and in educational matters his views were of the old 
Whiof tvpe. His liberality of action was sometimes misconstrued. 
In 1838 he was present with Bishop Stanley of Xorwich at the 
meetino^ of the British Association in Newcastle-on-Thvne. While 
there, both ^laltby and Stanley subscribed to a forthcominc: volume 
of sermons by AVilliam Turner (1761-1859, q.v.) a local L'nitarian 


divine. The appearance of the subscription Hst excited some com- 
motion ; pubhc indignation was stirred by a leader in the "Times" 
and it is said that Mahljy was burned in effigy. Both bishops ex- 
plained the matter as "a personal compliment," Stanley adding that 
his subscription was private and the use of his name unauthorized. 
]\Ialtby's explanatory letter, 25 Oct., 1838, expresses his repugnance 
to Unitarian doctrine, and refers to the existence of neutral ground 
in topics of practical religion. 

IMaltby retained the charge of his diocese till his eighty-seventh 
year, wlien increasing iiihrmities made him anxious to be relieved of 
his duties. In 1856 a special act of parliament (19 and 20 Vict. r. 
115) provided for the retirement of the bishops of London (Bloom- 
field) and Durham, and Alaltby immediately resigned on a pension 
of £4,500 a }'ear. He d. in his ninetieth year, on 3 July, 1859, at 
4 Upper Portland Place, London. His portrait painted in 1832, bv 
Sir William Beechy (q.v.) is at Durham. (According to this state- 
ment Bishop ]\Ialtby was sixty-two years of age when this portrait 
of him was painted.) 

His chief classical publication was "Lexicon Grseco-prosodiacum 
. . . correxit . . . auxit, et Graecis vocibus Latinam versionem 
subjecit Edw. Maltby," Sc. Cambridge, 1815, 4to ; 2nd edit. 1824, 4to. 
This work was based on Thomas Morell's Thesawrus," Eton, 1762, 
4to. An abridgment appeared as "A Xew and Complete Greek

John Grabham. 1851. 8vo. INIaltby contributed notes on Euripides 
to Duncan's edition, Glasgow, 1821, 8vo ; 9 vols. 

Besides single sermons (1806-35), charges (1835-53), ^"d

Religion," Cambridge, 1802, 8vo : 2nd edit., 1803, ^vo ; 3rd edit, 1803,

In the Print Room at the British ]\Iuseum Book Plates of vari- 
ous members of the Maltby family are to be seen. Whether these 
are registered in the College of Arms is not known bv the writer. 
There are two Book Plates of Edward ^laltby, evidentlv the Bishop, 
as follows : 

Edward Alaltby, D.D.. Xo. 19573. — Arg. 3 wheat sheaves on a 
bend gules, quartering Beaumont (az. a lion rampant between 8 
fieur de lys) and impaling Green (or. on a chief indented gules 3 
crescents). Crest: A wheat sheaf, blotto: X^il sine Lahore. 

The other plate is: Edward ^laltby. D.D., F.R.S., F.S.A.— Arg. 
on a ])end gules 3 wheat sheaves : a lion ramp, in sinister chief and 
a cross in base impahng az. 3 harts tripp : or. for Green. Crest : A 
wheat sheaf charged with a cross between 2 branches. ]^Iotto : Xil 
sine labore. 

An English correspondent who was kind enough to furnish the 
above data writes : ''From these I gather that when Edward Alaltby 
became a bishop he had to register his arms at the Heralds' College 
and the lion represents some marriage with a Beaumont and the 
cross to note the bishop — or the cross may have reference to the 
Arms of I\Ialby of X^orfolk — and evidently he had not impaled the 
correct arms of Green — implying that he married a Aliss Green." 

According to genealogical data in possession of the secretary 
Edward Alaltby m. a [Miss Harvey. He was the son of George and 
]\Iary (Fearman) ]\Ialtby, grandson of Thomas and Elizabeth 
(Taylor) [Nlaltby and great-grandson of \\'illiam and Jane 
(Brough) Alaltby. If we could discover in what way he was re- 
lated to the Beaumonts and Greens it would be valuable genealogical 

There is a book in the reference room at the Astor Library 
which contains a half page of reading matter relative to the above, 
the substance being that Edward ]\Ialtby made application to the 
Heralds' College, London, in 1829, for grant of arms, and mentions 
that his familv came ori^inallv from Yorkshire. He undoubtedlv 
knew the truth of this statement, but very probably could not prove 
it. Consequently he was allowed to introduce the wheat sheaves 


of the family from whom he claimed descent, the coat-of-arms being 
altered to show that the descent was not proved. 

Since writing the above sketch of Bishop Maltby, the compiler received 
the desired extract from the Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica. ]\Ir. 
Edwin ]\I. Blake was so very kind as to visit the Astor Library and tran- 
scribe the article, so we could publish it in this book. 

Extract from ^^liscellanea Genealogica et Heroldica, Series II., 
\'o\. I., 1886. p. 81 : "Grant of Arms to Rev. Edward Alaltby, D.D , 
1829. To all and singular to whom these presents shall come, vSir 
George ]\Iayler, Knight Garter Principal King of Arms, and Ralph 
Begland, Esquire Clauenceux, King of Arms of the south, east and 
West parts of England, from the River Trent southwards send greet- 
ing: Whereas, the Reverend Edward ]\Ialtby, Doctor of Divinity, 
preacher to the Society of Lincoln's Inn, son of George Maltby, 
late of the City of Norwich, Esquire, deceased, hath by memorial 
represented unto the most noble Bernard Edward, Duke of Norfolk, 
Earl Marshall and Hereditary ^Marshall of England, that his an- 
cesters were seated for several generations in the county of Notting- 
ham and according to the tradition preserved in his family derived 
their descent from a branch of the ancient family of ]\Ialtby in the 
county of Y^ork, but the memorialists being prevented by the defects 
of the family evidence from aducing strict proof of such descent 
and being unwilling to continue the use of the armorial ensigns 
hitherto borne by him without unquestionable authority. He there- 
fore requested the favor of his Grace's warrant for our granting 
and assigning such armorial ensigns as may be proper to be borne 
by him and his descendants and by other descendants of his said late 
father with due and proper differences according to the Law of 
Arms. And for as much as the said Earl ^Marshall did by warrant 
under his hand and seal bearing date of the fourth day of July 
instant, authorize and direct Us to grant and assign such armorial 
ensigns accordincrly know ye therefore, that We the said Garter and 
Clauenceaux in pursuance of his Grace's warrant and by virtue of 
the Letters Patent of our several offices to each of us respectively 
granted under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom of Great 
Britain and Ireland, do by these presents grant and assign unto 
the said Edward Maltby the Arms following, that is to say. Argent 
on a bend Gules between a lion rampant in chief purpure and a 
cross patee in base of the second three garbs or. And for the crest 
on a wreath of the colours between two branches of olive proper a 
garb or. charged with a cross patee gules as the same are in the mar- 


gin hereof more plainly depicted to be borne and used forever here- 
after by him, the said Edward Maltby, and his descendants, and by 
the other descendants of his aforesaid late father, with due and 
proper differences according to the Laws of Arms. 

"In Witness Whereof, we, the said Garter and Clarenceux, 
Kings of Arms, have to these presents subscribed our names and 
affixed the seals of our several offices, this ninth day of Julv in the 
tenth year in the reign of our Sovereign Lord George, the Fourth. 
by the Grace of God of the L'nited Kingdom, of Great Britain and 
Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, etc., and in the year of our 
Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty-nine. 

"Garter Principal King of Arms. 


"Clarenceux King of Arms.'' 

This grant of arms makes it quite plain that the descendants of 
Bishop Maltby are entitled to bear his arms and also that the de- 
scendants of his father. George Maltbw Est]., are entitled to bear 
similar arms "with a difference," etc. 

The coat-of-arms used originally by Bishop ]\Ialtby and his 
father. George Maltby. Esq.. was in all probability the sheaves of 
wheat on a bend gules just as it has come down to this day in the 
line of Brough Maltby. Esq. Mr. Brough ]\Ialtby descends from the 
oldest son (who had issue) of William and Jane Brough ]\Ialtby. 
and the coat-of-arms has come down in his family for generations. 

Bishop Maltby unquestionably knew that they traced back to 
the Yorkshire family of Maltby and it is our sincere hope tliat 
before so very long we may be able to prove the truth of his state-

For a full account of this branch of the family see Miss Ella 
K. Barnard's very interesting ^laulsby Genealogy. ]Miss Barnard

give only the early generations. 


I. I. WILLIAM Multby of Orston, Xotts, m. Alary Roacles 
of Ripley. Derby, 5 m. 9th, 1689. (She, clau. of John and EHzabeth 
Roades, b. 11 mo. 30, 1662, a second child; her brother, Adam 
Roades. was b. in 1660.) He was a Quaker. He d. October 14, 
1699. Their children were:

phia, Pa. 

The followino^ are a few extracts from the AFaulsby Genealoo^y. 
It is difficull to fi.^'ure whether the notes deal with the above William 
Maltby, Quaker, who was probably b. about 1660, or with William 
Alaltby b. in 1641. The items are:

"William Alaltby. d. Oct. 26, 1783, ae. 68," (hence b. in 1715). 
This is probably the William, son of John Afaltby, bapt. in 1714. 
"George Maltby, d. Alay 24. 1846, in 96th year." (hence b. 1750).

Pedigree: XIIL 

Maltby of Scarborough, Yorkshire 

Arms : Quart, or. and arg. p party per fess indented. Crest : A 

W'yren. Motto : Fear God in Life. 

This coat of arms has been in the family for manv {generations 
and was always presumed to be a Maltby coat-of-arms. A corre- 
spondent in England writes : ''This is not a ]^Ialtby coat-of-arms," 
and goes on to say, "evidently someone fancies he descends from 
the Maultby or Maltby who married a Clavering. If this surmise 
is correct and he can prove his descent from Miss Clavering you 
have struck a good find. The Clavering arms being similar ; i.e.. 
quart, or. and gules overall a band (or bendlet) sable." 

There is absolutely no question of this branch of the family 
fancying they descend from any particular person or branch of the 
family tree, and indeed, were quite unaware of any Clavering inter- 
marriage with a Maltl^y. The\' traced their ancestry back to John 
]\laltljy, b. Sept. 12. 171 2, and the above arms were in the family. 
Further than this they had not attempted to trace. Through the 
]\Ialtby Association one generation back has recently been added. 

The above arms are extremely interesting as it would in fact 
seem that this branch of the family descend from Sir John Mautby, 

* This name Clayton seems worth noting in connection with the fol- 
lowiner: "WilHam Maltby left home in New York state, after unmerited 
punisliment. He was finely educated, and often spoke of Rochester, N. Y. 
At one time lie encountered some relatives in a shop in Cincinnati, but 
he did not make hiinself known. He liad a sister Mary, for when his oldest 
daughter %vas born he Avished her named for a dear sister. He named his 
other children Clayton, George, Ellen and Anna. In 1840 Mr. Maltby settled 
in Madison Ind. He taught school as a young man; was a Pres. and a 
great abolitionist. He m. in 1S;.50 and d. in 1S61." For years we have tried 
to connect this William Maltby ^\ ith the New England Maltbys. but it 
would almost seem he was connected with the above George and Clayton. 
It may be that Speaker George R. Malby of New York is of this same 
branch. Any suggestions or data will be most welcome. 


Kt., who m. Isabel (or Elizabeth) Clavering, dan. of Robert, and 
granddaughter of Roger, Lord of Clavering [1326]. See Pedigree 
I\\-A. The marriage was into a prominent family, and it is quite 
easy to see how in the course of time this coat-of-arms might have 
got to be regarded as a ]\Ialtby coat. 


I. I. W'lLLIA^M Maltby of Scarborough, Yorkshire; m. be- 
fore 1 71 2. He had : 

II. 2. JOHX Alaltby, "bapt. Sept. 5, 171 2. John, son to Wm. 
Maltby." (From a certified record made by Rev. Cecil Cooper, 
Vicar and Rural Dean of Scarborough). The old family record 
gives the date as Sept. 12, evidently an error. He m. ]\Iary Dicken- 
son the 7th day of August. 1738, probably at Scarborough as their 
children were bapt. there. The following copy of the Baptismal 
Register of the Parish of Scarborough (Baptisms) are transcribed 
verbatim from the original register by Cecil H. H. Cooper, \ icar 
and Rural Dean of Scarborough. Children : 

III. 3. "1739, Oct. 19, ]\Iary, dau. of John and ^lary

III. 3. :\IARY :\Ialtby, b. Sept. 2-]. 1739. She evidently m. 
a John Todd, as the old Bible contains this item : "John Todd, son 
of John and ]Mary Todd, was born the 17th November, at 6 o'clock 
in ve morning, Thursdav, 1763." Child: 

IV. ^ 9. John Todd. 

III. 5. JOHX Maltby. b. Dec. 9, 1742: bapt. Jan. 4, 1743, at 
Scarborough, Y'orks : m. June 3, 1765, at York to ^Margaret Addison, 
wid. of Georo^e Addison, Esq., of Whitby, Yorks. (She was prob- 
ablv Alarsraret Dent, as thev name a child William Dent.) Children : 

R'. 10. Thomas ^laltbv, b. Oct. 12, 1766. 

W. II. ^Marearet Maltby. b. Auo^. 30, 1767. 

IV. 12. William Dent :Maltby, b. Oct. 29. 1769. 


John ]\Ialtby evidently died between 1769 and 1775, as we find: 
"^Margaret, wid. of John ]\Iahby. m. \Viniam Robinson at Scar- 
borough and had children: George Robinson, b. Aug. 17, 1775; 
Alary Robinson, b. July 2, 1777; Isabella Robinson, b. July 6, 1780. 

The following item evidently applies to the above John ^Nlaltby 
and his older brother William, whose line is not carried out : A let- 
ter dated July 29th, 1883, from B. \Mlkinson of 17 Elmwood Street, 
Durham Road, Sunderland, to R. L. ]\Ialtby, Esq., states: ''Our 
son has a nice old painting of two ships (that I suppose would be- 
long to your great, great-grandfather) sailing from Scarboro, the 
birthplace of the old, old Alaltbys, say 200 years ago ; the names of 
the ships are on the back of the picture. They are bound for the 
Greenland whale fishery." Mrs. Orr write: "The ships spoken of 
were owned by a John and William Alaltby." (It is worth noting 
that in the inventory of the estate of Daniel (2) Alaltby of New 
England, there is mention of "One sealskin chair." Daniel Maltby 
d. in 1 73 1. 

This John Alaltby moved from Scarborough, Yorkshire to 
Sunderland, Durham Co., and taught school there for years. Lieut. 
Col. Richard Leighton IMaltby has an account book of his dating 
from June, 1765, with the names of his pupils and the amounts of 
their tuition fees. 

IV. 10. THOAIAS .Maltby "was born" the 12th of October, 
between the hours of 12 and i on the Sundav mornin"" in the vear 
of our Lord 1766." 

It may be well to state here that these records are practically 
all taken from Thomas Maltby's Bible. They were copied by Mrs. 
Percy Browne of Sunderland. Ens^land, who is a great, great-grand- 
daughter of the above Thomas Maltby. Mrs. Browne writes: ''The 
spelling is evidently old English and most beautifully written — some 
pages of the Bible are missinc: which might have contained other 
and older dates and names. The old Bibles are very much torn and 
discolored but I have copied word for word and spelled as it is spelled 
in the pages I found." ]\rrs. Orr, to whom Mrs. Browne sent her 
copy, forwarded it to the compiler. 

Airs. Orr writes : "Thomas Maltl\v was a master mariner or sea 
captain who sailed out of Scarboro. This Thomas Maltby was mas- 
ter of a vessel carrying coals uj) the Baltic during: the Xapolian 
wars and was taken as a prisoner of war in the year 1807 while try- 
ing to run a blockade. Tie was in prison seven years and while 
thus confined, tau^rht navi^^ation to the other prisoners. We have a 
letter written by him in 181 2 to his wife and family who were then 
livin^: in Sunderland, Durham Countv. England." Mr. B. Wilkin- 


son also wrote : "We have letters written by your great-grandfather 
when in a French prison, and I blush for my poor writing when I 
consider the perfect formation of every letter in the closely written 
epistles he sent from his prison home." 

Thomas ]\Ialtby m. Alary . (Probably ]\Iary Baker, as 

they name a son Thomas Baker.) Their children were: 

\'. 13. Elizabeth Alaltby. b. June 22, 1790. 

\'. 14. Thomas Baker ]\Ialtby, b. June 17, 1792. 

V. 15. Mary Alaltby, b. Dec. 14, 1797. 

V. 14. THO^MAS Baker Maltby "was born June 17th, 1792, 
at a quarter before six o'clock of the Sunday morning, in vScarboro, 
Y'orkshire, England." Mrs. Browne writes : "The following is copied 
from a very old book of exquisite writing which contains texts and 
beautiful thoughts on religion:: '1817, April 28th, ^Monday morn- 
ing, at half past 9 o'clock, Thos. Baker ]\Ialtby sailed from Sunder- 
land as an emigrant for Quebec, with his w. Alargaret and dau. 
Mary Ann. ae. one month and two days' (This is crossed out and 
'five weeks tomorrow' added). 'Sailed from Sunderland roads, 2nd

Note. — The earliest record found of Maltbys at Scarborough is in 1334, 
when the name of William de Maltbv appears in a list of Freemen (p. 18. Cal. 
Pat. Rolls). 

It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the death 
of Col. ^^laltby of X'ewcastle, X'ew Brimswick. 

Col. ^Maltby liad l)een a member of the 12th X'ewcastle Field 
Battery for nearly forty years, having risen from the rank of gun- 
ner to that of commanding: officer. U])on the outbreak of the pres- 
ent European war. Col. ^laltby was most anxious to enlist for active 
service, but being 59 years of ai^e. it was impossible for him to 
be accepted bv the Department of Militia. He was, however, made 
recruiting officer for the district. It was while in jjursuit of his 
duties, while on a recruiting tour in the northern part of the province 
that he contracted pneumonia from which he died after a two weeks' 
illness. The funeral, under the auspices of the Masonic order, of 
which Col. Maltlw was a member, was most impressive, the casket

being draped with the flag Col. Maltby loved so well, the Union 
jack. The body was laid to rest with full military honors.

the front as a Red Cross nurse and one son, l\Ir. H. ^l. R. ]\Ialtbv.

Malfby of Xorthallerton, Yorkshire 

Arms : Argent on a bend gules three garbs or. Crest : a barley sheaf 

erect and banded or. Pendant therefrom a bugle horn or. 

Alotto: Sperat infestis. (There is hope in adversity.") 

For grant of arms see below. 

The above crest is given in Fairbairn's Crests of England and 
Scotland, under the heading "]\Ialtby — Essex," with the difference 
that the bugle horn is argent instead of or. 

Air. Ernest iNlaltby, from whom most of the following notes 
were obtained, says he is not sure if the bugle horn comes from the 
Foxton family — one of his forebears having married a Foxton — or 
from the Pennycuicks whose crest is a demi forester blowing a bugle 
anr] whose motto is "Free for a Blast," this being the only homage 
ill tlie old days the head of the family had to pay when the king 
came inside the barony near Edinburgh, now the property of Sir 
George Clark, or his descendants. 

Burke's Gen. Armory gives: Pennycook (that Ilk) Ponts' M. S. 
Argent a bend azure between 3 hunting horns sable stringed gules. 
Crest: a man windins: a horn. ]\Iotto : Free for a l)last. "Evidentlv 
an old Scottish clan," writes an English friend. The Foxtons of 
Cambridgeshire and London have a similar coat-of-arms, viz. : 
Arms: A chevron (another engrailed) gules between 3 l)ugle horns 
sable ; garnished ar. Crest : A rose ar. barbed vert. 

XoTE. — Through the Maltby Association we have been able to trace this 
branch of the family back a generation further than the records which were 
furnished by Mr. Maltby. 


I. I. CHRISTOPHER Maltby of Xorthallerton, Y^orkshire. wife Mary Foxton. The clerk of the church who consulted the 
register informs me that there were older Maltby records on the 


registers and he observed the name of Foxton several times while 
searching for the birth of Thomas (2) Alaltby. A small sum of 
money would probably obtain records of several generations back 
of those now known. He is called "deceased in July. 1752, when 
his son Thomas was baptized." 

]\Iiss Henrietta ^^laltby writes of him: "Grandfather must have 
been an elder or an only son, as the family property was in his 
hands. (These lands were in the wilds of the Xorth Fading, near 
Ripon, York.) 

Note. — Christopher Alaltby probably had a younger brother named 
Thomas, as the clerk informs me that he found the baptism of \Villiam, son 
of Thomas Maltby of the King's First Regiment of Dragoons; he was bapt. 
March 2Z, Mil . 

How many children Christopher may have had is nrit known 
to me. An old diary (a copy of which ]\Ir. Maltby loaned the com- 
piler), written by Henrietta ^laltby, b. in 1788; d. 1876. and the 
memoir written when she was 76 years of age. states that her 
father, Thomas (2) "was a posthumous child, many Ijrothers and 
sisters had preceded him, but one alone of them, Christopher, lived 
within the scope of my memory. He was much older than his 
brother Thomas and settled in London." She speaks of her grand- 
father Maltby and states that she "always understood that grand- 
mother was b}- birth a Foxton, and it is from her we have the bu.f^le 
horn in our arms." . . . "Tradition speaks of our grandmother 
as having been very handsome." Further on in the memoir she 
speaks of one of the last presents Grandmother ^laltby gave her 
son Thomas was a large silver tankard with the Foxton and other 
arms on it. Alas, she further states it was so large and out of style 
she 2:ave it awav ! She further adds : "Grandmother died about 


I am inclined to think that one of the sons of Christopher was 
Richard, as we find the two following items in the West Indies, viz. : 

Xevis, \\'. L, 1800. "West Indian Deeds on the Close Rolls. 
London, is one of Butler Claxton by Thomas ]\Ialtby. Henrietta, 
his wife: Xevis, 1800. 7, 13. 14. 15. 16." 

The second item reads: "Barbodoes ^Mercury. AA'. I. Died. 
Richard ^Maltby, Esq., of Bridgetown, Barbadoes within a few days 
of Sept. 14, 1816. ^Irs. ]\Ialtby, his w.. d. the morning of ]\Iarch 
23. 1813." 

The first item refers to Thomas, son of Christopher, and it is 


possible the second item refers to a brother Richard. However, out 
of "many children" we can record only the two following: 

11. 2. Christopher ^laltby, b ? Settled in London. 

II. 3. Thomas ]\Ialtby, bapt. in All Saints' Church, North- 
allerton. July 26, 1752. 

II. 4. Brother d. in 1754, of smallpox. 

II. 2. "CHRISTOPHER Maltby," writes his neice, "was 
much older than his brother Thomas. My impression of him is that 
he was mild and gentleman!}-, with an air of much suffering from 
illness. His wife and her sister. Lady Bannerman, had in youth been 
so noted for their beauty as to have been called the Roses of York- 

II. 3. THOMAS :\Ialtby, bapt. July 26, 1752, at Xorthaller- 
ton, Y^ork. m. at St. Swithin's, London, ^lay 17, 1787, Henrietta 
Crichton, b. in 1770: d. in 1837. He d. in 1830. She was a dau. 
of Alderman Crichton. 

Note. — This is very evidently the Thomas Maltby and wife, Henrietta, 
who sign the Xevis, \V. I. deed in 1800. 

Henrietta ]\Ialtby in her memoirs writes : "T believe father's 
[Thomas (2)] birthplace was North Allerton, Yorkshire, where it 
appears his family had been long resident and held the respectable 
rank of small proprietors, farming their own land. 

"That the Maltbys were long ago persons of some consequence 
in that part of the country may be inferred by an entry in Dugdale's 
]\Ionastican of a grant of land made to a convent in that locality 

by a Sir Thomas de Maltby and Dame , his wife, in order 

that prayers should be kept on for the benefit of their sols ; and 
Henry," (her brother?) "when some years ago at the Heralds' office 
on other business, profited by the opportimity to make inquiries about 
the Maltbys of North Allerton. The result of his inquiry was his 
bearing that though not coming under what it is the fashion of our 
time to call 'the untitled nobility of the country,* the ^Faltbys were 
a res])ectable race of small landed proprietors in Y'orkshire — the 
class, I fancy, whose yoimger sons formed the ranks of the formid- 
able cross-bowmen of the times of the Planta^^enets ; and still more 
redoubtable Ironsides of Cromwell's more recent period. Men who 
could equip themselves with horses and arms and were ready to 
follow fame or fortune wherever their proverbial Y^orkshire sagacity 
told them they were most likely to be found. 

"Our father's family were decided adherents to the Established 
Church. . . . Christmas, Easter and all high festivals were dearly 


prized by him to the end of his days as recalhng the Wile log, the 
family gatherings round it and all his youthful happiness at those 
joyful seasons, when like the Mcar of W^akefield's neighbors, they 
cracked nuts, toasted each other in home made wines, and sung jovial 
carols. . . . Like all families who have been long settled in a 
neighborhood the Alaltby connections from good and bad marriages 
and other causes must have included persons holding very different 
positions in its society.'' Thomas ]^Ialtby's widowed mother married 
the bailiff and Thomas left home for all time when only 14. Mis 
Henrietta Alaltby writes : "In his old age, I have seen him shed 
tears as when talking of his mother's loving, fondling ways ; of her 
alarm the first time he was seized with a fainting fit, an ill to which. 
healthy as he was, he was occasionally subject." 

In 1807 the family resided at Plaiston Lodge, near Bromley, Kent, 
a very beautiful place of some hundred acres, requiring a staff of 
twenty-two servants. They removed to Boulogne and thence to 
Brussels. There ?vlr. Maltby d., ''and Octavia d. in April, 1830." 
(Octavia seems to have been her sister.) 

Note. — This mention of Brussels leads one to the query as to whether 
the Mr. Maltby who was British Consul at Brussels from 1840 to 1880. 

IL 3. Mr. THOMAS Maltby was a very able merchant and 
private banker of Harley Street, and owned a very fine country 
seat at Walthanston in Essex. He practicall\" made the house of 
Walker and also amassed a considerable fortune himself, being cred- 
ited with having made over ^90,000 ($450,000) before he was thirty- 
two years of age. Later he went into business himself as old ]\Ir. 
Walker died, and Mr. Maltby not being able to get on with the son, 
who was then head of the firm. Ill fortune beset him — through no 
fault of his own. rather a too kindly opinion of the integrity of his 
associates — and he lost all he had made and died a poor man. 

Mr. Maltby had a great friend in Sir Alartin Archer Shee. Presi- 
dent of the Royal Academy, 1803-5 (T believe), he painted two grand 
pictures, one of ]\Ir. Maltby. which we reproduce in this book, and 
one of his wife with their daus^hter Ellen, then a little girl. ]\Ir. 
Ernest Maltby says his grandfather was said to have been the 
seventh son of his father : also that his father was the fifteenth of 
sixteen children, and a seventh son. I believe Mr. Maltby is buried 
at Shelton, Xotts. He had eicjht sons and ei'2:ht daughters.

days the training college for the India Civil Service) in 1829, and 
in 1832 he went out to India. ]\Ir. ^laltby m. Jane Pennycuick at 
Betchworth, Surrey, on C)ctober 12. 1843. She was the eldest dau. 
of Brigadier-General John Pennycuick, K. H. C. B.. who, with his 
second son, Alick, were the heroes of the disastrous (to the British) 
battle of Chillianwallah in the Punjaub of India during the Second 
Sikt \\^ar, and who fell gloriously on January 15, 1849, when the 
famous 24tli foot ( of which regiment Brig.-Gen. Pennycuick was 
also Colonel) were literally mowed down in ten minutes. Lord 
Gough having ordered them at the end of a long march to charge 
the Sikt guns in position. Air. Ernest Maltby says: ''^Fy grand- 
father and his hero boy — only seventeen years old — died fighting 
nobly and their grand deaths drew forth that stirring letter in the 
'Times' of London, England, written in his usual violent style by 
the well known author of the Peninsular War. v^ir AMlliam Xapier, 
whose brother. Sir Charles Xapier, was a great friend of my grand- 
father's and an old comrade. In appreciation of his services my 
grandmother was given rooms in Hampton Court Palace which she 
occupied till she died there on August 24th. 1878, and Lord Mayo 


erected a cross on their monument on the battlefield 'to record the 
names of all the brave officers and men who fell on that fatal field.' " 
Air. Edward Maltby had a most serviceable career in the Aladras 
Civil Service, finishing his long term of thirty-two years in 1864, 
by having occupied for a number of years the highest post in the 
Service ; viz. : Senior Member in Council^ and for some months pre- 
vious to his retirement he was Acting Governor of Madras while 
Sir \Mlliam Dennison, the then Governor, was Acting Mceroy of 
India at Calcutta. 

(Jn his retirement Mr. Maltby was offered a knighthood which 
he declined. He had eleven children, ?^lr. Ernest Maltl)y being the

couver, B. C. and is on his way to the front to serve his country as his 
ancestors have served before him. That he may return to fight the smaller 
battles of everyday life will be the sincere hope of all Alaltbys.

Travancore Civil Service, from which he retired with a pension in 
J 903, and now resides at Harrow. He married in 1884, Jessie 
Capper. (Mrs. Maltby's brothers, all in the army, are well known. 
Maj. Gen. Sir Thompson Capper, who led the famous 7th Division 
at Ypres, was killed last October. Her three other brothers are all

twentv-two vears. 


\'. 44. Audrey Xewcombe ]\Ialtbv. 
The following is a copy of the grant of arms tn this famih- which 
we have called "of Xorth AUerton" but from the wordine of this 
document it is evident that Christopher ]^Ialtby originallv came 
from Maltby in Cleveland, and only in his later vears resided in 
Xorth Allerton. This is a very important discoverv and will be 
followed up by this branch of the family. 


To whom these Presents shall come Sir Isaac Heard, Knieht 
Garter Principal King of Arms and Thomas Lock. Esquire, Clau- 
enceux King of Arms of the South. East and West Parts of Eng- 
land from the River Trent Southwards send srreetino: :

Duke of Xorfolk. Earl ^Marshall and Hereditarv Marshal of Ene- 
land, that he has always understood and believed that his ancestors 
came from Maltby in Cleveland in the Xorth Riding of the Count \- 
of York, but being unable to trace a regular descent from tlie 
family of that name whose pedigree was entered at tlie Heralds 
A'isitation of Yorkshire, made in 161 3. He therefore requested the 
favor of His Grace to issue his warrant for one devising, granting 
and assigning such armorial ensigns as may be proper to be

Garter and Clauenceux in purstiance of the consent of the said Earl 
^Marshal and by virtue of the Letters Patent of our several offices 
to each of the respectively granted under the Great Seal of Great

to say. Argent on a bend ovules between two cotises enofraiied of 
the second a bu^rle horn stringed of the field between two s:arbs or

XoTE — The original motto was : Opes Parit Industria. but Mrs. Wells 
writes that her famih- now use the motto: "Industria Parit Opiam." Mr. 
Ernest Maltby states the original motto was Copia Parit Industria (Industry 
bringeth forth riches), but his family now use for their motto: Sperat Tnfestis 
(There is hope in adversity). 


Recent letters from Mrs. Sydney Wells of 12 Linden Road, 
Bedford, EnG:land, give man\- more items of interest of this branch 
of the family. 

II. 2. CliristO])her Maltby settled in London when his l)rother 
Thomas was but a liny. He m. Miss Sedq^wick. They had cliildren, 
but no information concerning them is available. One of the daugh- 
ters married an Italian named Gabrielli (London artist probablv) 
and had a large family who lived in much discomfort owing to 
scanty means. 

II. 3. Thomas (2) was but fourteen years old when he started 
life in London. He was first of all employed in the house of a Mr. 
PVeeling. lead merchant, after which he formed a connection with 
the firm of Walker. He resided first at Red Bull Wharf. Thames 
Street, tlien at Blackheath. bavins: a winter residence at Chatham 
Place. In 1807, they moved to Plaiston Lodge and afterwards to 
Walthanston in 1813. In June, 1823 to 1833. they resided at Tapper 
Ilarley Street. 



Pedigree X\\ 
Maltby — Hovcringham, Mansfield, Xottinghamshire 

^Ir. Harte of Wells, Somerset, whose wife is Clara Jane ^laltby 
of this pedigree, and to whom I am indebted for data of this branch 
of the family, writes me that "in all probability the ]\Ialtbys of 
^lansfield descend from Robert AFaltby of Orston." ]\Ir. Harte 
further states: **I understand that some of the ?\Ialtbys were buried 
at Hoveringham early in 1500 and that about thirty-five years ago 
(1875) was to be seen in Hoveringham Church, or Churchyard, the 
name of a William ( or John?) Maltby, date early 1600. The churcli 
has in recent years been restored." 

The earliest Hoveringham record at hand is that of the will of 
Hugh Alaultl)y proved in 1698-9. lie had sons, William, Hugh, 
Richard, John. James, a wife Mary and a daughter Mary. The name 
Hugh is one frequently found about this time in the Orston branch 
of the family. 

From St. Peter's Church we have the folk>wing record wliich 
evidently refers to the above Hugh Maltby: "Hugh Maultlj}- of 
Hoveringham, Xotts, and Mary Gibson of Cosall, Xotts, m. (license) 
25 Febv.. 1660." \ ery possibly he was the Hugh Maltby b. at 
Orston in 1636, son of John and Mary Maltby.

he d. He m. (i) . and (2) the wid. of a Mr. Doughtv. 

solicitor of X'ottingham. ( Is this the Arthur Maltby mentioned in 
the X^'ew York Herald in about the year 1906.) It speaks of him 
as a London author, who addressed the Metropolitan Psvchical So- 
ciety. 'T may tell you," he says, "that T have had an absolutely 
direct communication from the other world. I am what is called 
an automatic writer, as William T. Stead would sav. althougli I do 


not believe in it. I should like to have your opinion. I was writing 
an American story when my hand suddenly seemed as if paralvzed 
and automatically wrote 'America will conquer the whole world, 
and all the world will speak its language,' and then followed the 
signature, 'George Washington.* Again, writing an article on 
Haldane's territorial scheme, my hand was affected in the same way 
as before and I wrote, 'England's salvation lies in conscription.' 
Then followed details in the way in which our army should be 
reformed. I had a kettle on the hob at the time, as I intended to 
make a cup of tea. The kettle boiled over. I stopped writing in 
order to remove it. On my putting pencil to paper again the lan- 
guage was truly military — you understand — for breaking the cur- 
rent of ideas. ( )n my apologizing to the imknown the details were 
continued and at the close the message was signed 'Wellington.' I 
laughed. Again the pencil moved and wrote one word, 'Fool.' " 

It will be noted that Mr. Maltby does not believe in automatic 
writing, \et had experiences which led him to ask an o])inion of 
what had occured of the Metropolitan Psychical Society. The above 
item may not apply to the Arthur Maltby of Forest Hill, London, 
but it would seem likely. The children of Arthur ]\faltby (IV. 8)

VI. 38. Clara Jane Maltby, m. at Singapore, Edward Harte 
of Wells, Somerset, who furnislied most of the 
records of this branch of the family. 

XoTE. — A letter dated July 12th. 1906. from Morton Rectory, near Alf re- 
ton, Devonshire, from Mr. Ciilbert ^laltby, who was evidently visiting his 
brother, who was in ill healtb, states that they have a cousin in Toronto, a 
Charles Unwin, Esq., O. L. S. City Surveyor, which proves that Rev. Wil- 
liam Mowbray Maltby had a sister who married a Mr. Unwin. 

Addenda. — As this goes to press we have received an interesting photo- 
graph from Mr. Edward C. Harte, showing the Mayor of ]\Iansfield (who is 
"Alderman IMaltby," according to a contemporary English paper) welcoming 
home Corporal Fuller of Mansfield who has won the Victoria Cross. We 
feel greatly indebted to Mr. Harte for this photograph and the pleasure it 
gives us to thus meet another English cousin. Mayor ]\Ialtb\' undoubtedly 
descends from this Hoveringham, Mansfield branch of the family and we 
hope to ascertain his line of descent.

Maltby — Leeds, Yorkshire. 

This family owned o coat-of-arms which was on a fine old seal 
ring belonging to Mr. William Lassey Alaltby's father, and which 
was lost ; unfortunately little interest was taken in such things and 
the present generation is unable to describe the arms, though Mr. 
Alaltby says he is quite sure it was not the sheaves of wheat. 


I. I. SAMUEL Alaltby, of Leeds, Y'orkshire, master plumber. 
He seems to have been quite well ofif, juding from the fact that a 
piece of property which should have gone to his son Samuel — b\- tlie 
entail not beini?- cut off — was valued at some £8000 sterlino'. which 
of course v/as but a part of his property. 

IL 2. SA:MUEL Maltby was b. at Leeds, Y^orks. Mr. W. L. 
]\Ialtby says: "I may as well admit that I have an idea that father 
was somewhat of a dare-devil, and it was probablx Ihs reason for 
leaving Y^orkshire and moving to Derby, where I was born. Father 
had two sisters married, but I was too young to know much about 
them, as we emigrated to ^Montreal, Canada, in 1855, when I was 
thirteen years old. . . . On mother's side there is a legend attached 
to the name, true or not I do not know. At the battle of Xaseby, 
a child was found on the field ; picked up by the soldiers, they began 
betting upon its sex. The losers to have the privilege of naming it. 
It was a boy. They swore a good round oath it should be a Lassie 
anyway, and that is why the name Lassey came to be. They are so 
proud of it (absurd) that they dub all their children with that name 
— all our family have got the Lassey tacked on to us. . . . Father 
was alwa}s bragging about his cousin, the Bishop, but I was not 
born that way and did not care a continental for the past." 

* A newspaper clipping- before me speaking- of the Yerkes method in 
Cliicago, says: "'True, there liad been champions of public rights in that 
body before, notably John H. Hamline, a splendid figure of a man, rugged 
and vehement. Adolplius 'W. Maltby followed him — a 'solid' business man — 
insisting on public rights." ;Mr. ;Maltby resides at Concord, California.

I unfortunately lost it, twenty years ago, but it certainly was not the wheat 

H. L. ]\Ialtby writes: "I had pedigrees, etc., but imfortunately I lost 
them in a fire." 

Mr. ]\Ialtby has been twice married and has twenty children. 
His eldest boy, if living, would be 39 years old. His youngest child 
was b. in Jan, ( ?) 1908, 

Note. — One of Mr. Maltby's sons has been living in Vancouver for the 
last four years. He enlisted, when war broke out, with the 72nd Seaforth 
Highlanders of Vancouver and when last heard from was at the front in 
the 16th Battalion, 3rd Brigade. May he return unharmed when this fright- 
ful war is over. 

There is little doubt biU that this branch of the family connect 
with the pedigree of the Maltbys of Orston.

Frequent inquiries are received as to the branch of the family 
to which George R. Malby, Esq.. who was speaker of the House

"I have no doubt but that if the matter could be traced back 
that it would be found that we all belong to the same family. You 
are spelling your name correctly and as our ancestors spelled it. I 
am spelling it incorrectly. However, it is a result of the way I was

XoTE. — T have not a Maulsby Genealog}' at hand, but do not think from 
tlie names that the above are a branch of that family. Personally I am in- 
clined to think this family connected with a "X. Malherbe."' who signs a 
petition to Lord Cornby. at Xew York in 1702. The petition was signed by 
346 persons from Xew York and Provinces (from a Hist, of Erie Co., N. Y., 


Vol. IV., p. 1006). This French form of Malherby would certainly be 
Anglicized into Mallaby. 

A letter from Arthur Lee, Paris. May 22, 1779, to Samuel Adams, con- 
cerning Benjamin Franklin has the following: "Please to enclose your letters 
a ^Monsieur le Alarquis de Malsherbe, Alinister d'Etat, a Paris." (Ref. X. Y. 
Hist. Soc. Papers, 1891, p. 465.) This may be the branch of the family whom 
descendants claim were French Huguenots and settled somewhere near Xew 
Rochelle, Xew York. 

In 1626 (p. 425, State and Domestic Papers, 64. Date Sept. 11. 1626) 
there is a petition of John ]\Ialherbe. Master of the "Francis" of St. Alaloes. 
His ship was bound from St. Maloes to Calais and was stayed by a King's 
ship and brought to Dover. This French branch is doubtless of the same 
stock as the English, though possibly one would have to trace back prior 
to the Xorman Conquest to prove it. 


Pedigree; XXA\ 

cork. ireland 

Information has recently been received of a branch of the 
family, who. if tradition is not at fault, have probably long been 
seated in Ireland. 

This branch of the Maltbys are said to have gone to Ireland 
Vvdth Oliver Cromwell, perhaps in Cromwell's army, which would 
h,ave been about the year 1649 or 1650. 

This tradition woidd indicate that the following record con- 
cerns this family intimately. In the Calendar of State Papers for 
Ireland, 1660-1662, p. 657, edited Mahaffey, is this item: "vSamuel 
I\Ialtby served in the Army of Ireland since 1649, '^^ Capt. Richard 
Franklin's troop, of Lord Deputy Fleetwood's Regiment." (1649- 
1662?). It will be recalled that Lieutenant-General Fleetwood was 
put in command of Cromwell's troops in Ireland, where he resided 
as Lord Deputy until 1655. 

It woidd seem that the Samuel Maltby above was, in all prob- 
ability, the progenitor of this Irish branch of the family. 

There has not been time to commtmicate with the Irish con- 
nections, and obtain records of the family, consequently w^e can 
give but three generations at the present writing:", namelv : 

I. I. ARTHUR WARXER MAULTBY, resided in Cork, 
Ireland. He was an inspector of merchandise shipped from the 
City of Cork — an office, or appointment, from the British Crown. 
This he held imtil his death, when his grandson, Henry ^Maultby, 


Esq., received the appointment, and is probably still in office. Arthur 
\\ arner 2^Iaultb\' had six sons, as follows :

County, X. Y. I^ater he went to Sheboygan County, Michigan. 
He was a prominent man in that county, being one of the chief 
organizers, holding the office of County Clerk, also that of Probate 
Judge, etc.

about 1840 (?). He resided at Landsingburg for a while. He

Leeds- Yorkshire 

The following item has recently come to our notice and is taken 
from the "Connecticut Quarterly," \'ol. II.. X^o. 4, pa2:e 398, as fol- 
lows : "Maltby. John (clothier) m. Aug. 3, 1790, in Parisli Church,

Joseph m. 1830, Betsey Goldsmith Chase. What became of 
William, George and Hannah? H. E. M. 


It is fitting that we should know something of the origin and 
derivation of the name we bear. There are several ways of spelling 
the name in use at the present time, the most common being ]\Ialtby 
and j\Ialtbie, though one also finds Alaltbey and Alolby. 

Manv inquirers ask why Alaltby is usually given as the correct 
spelling when our emigrant ancestor in Xew England spelled his 
name Alaltbie. First of all, our emigrant ancestors spelled the name 
both ways, and the recorders added a variety of spellings to these. 

A common idea in the family seemed to be that the village of 
]\Ialtby, Yorkshire, took its name from the familv of ^Maltby, who 
were belie^^ ed to have come down from Denmark before the Xorman 
Conquest. This is an error, as will be subsequently shown ; also it 
explains how the name comes to be claimed by so many nations. 

Aliss ]\Iartha J. 3*Ialtby, while in Christiana. Xorway, saw a 
stone house, known for years as the "Alaltby House." It was a 
private residence and was once owned b\' a physician by the name of 

Aliss Alaltby was told by a Xorwegian traveling acquaintance 
(of Chicago, but who was born in Christiana) that Alaltby was a 
X'^orwegian name. 

]\Iiss Margaret ]\Ialtby was told by a Danish professor of the 
University of Copenhagen, that ]\Ialtby was a Danish name. 

\Miile in Stockholm. Miss Alaltby was told that it was Swedish 
and. ]\Iiss [Nlaltby adds : "We know it is English !"' 

In the "Alaulsby Genealogy" ]\Iiss Ella K. Barnard has given 
a most able and clear analysis of this subject and we can not do 
better than to quote from her comprehensive and instructive sum- 


Page 13, "The Maulsby Genealogy" : "]\Ialtby is an old Norse 
or Saxon name. Saxon, niealt ; Swedish and Danish, malt. It is 
perhaps scarcely necessary to say that malt is barley or other grain 
steeped in water until it germinates, then dried on a kiln, evolving 
the saccharine principal. It is used in brewing. 

" *By" is an old English word, with the same spelling in Danish 
and Sw^edish. It is a place suffix, equivalent to town; see Grimsby, 
Whitbv, Derby. ]\Ialtby therefore means the town which produces 
malt, or where malt is made." 

The present form of the word Alaltby seems to indicate 
Danish origin but the word malt probably antedates the coming of 
the Danes who settled in that part of England containing the town- 
ship and parish of ]\Ialtby and probably influenced its later spelling. 
Saxon history contains many such records and leases, as the fol- 
lowing : 

"Lufe in 832 charged the inheritors and assigns of her lands 
at ]^Iundlingham with the following yearly payments to Canterbury 
forever ; that is to say, Sixty ambers of malt, one hundred and 50 
loaves, 50 white loaves, 120 alms-loaves, one ox, one hog and four 
wethers, two weys of bacon and cheese, one mitta of honey, ten 
geese and 20 hens." 

And : "20 hides of land were leased by Peterborough to Wul- 
fred for two hoes on condition of his getting its freedom and for 
the following yearly rental : First to the Monastery — 2 tons of bright 
ale ; two oxen fit for slaughter ; two mittan or measures of Welsh 
ale ; and six hundred loaves. To the Abbot's Private Estate — One 
horse and thirty shillings of silver, £^, one nic^ht's pasture; fifteen 
mittan of bright and five of W^elsh ale, and fifteen sesters of mild 

And so the parts of Y^orkshire where the malt was made in great 
quantities finally became known as ]\Ialtby and they are still known 
to us through the names of (Page 14) ]\Ialtby, a chapelry, a town- 
ship and parish. 

''Maltby. a chapelry. in the parish of Raithby, union of Louth, 
Wold division of the hundred of South-Eske, parts of Lindsey,

Airs. G. AI. \\^atson, of Alaltby House, Cleveland, Stockton-on- 
Tees, was kind enough to write the compiler something about the 
village of Alaltby, and we append extracts from her letter: 

"It is only a small village with a few outlying farms of about 
one hundred and forty inhabitants, in the township of Stainton. It 
consists of some nice cottages, and three or four larger houses and 
the house I occupy is the largest. In referring to the history of 
Cleveland, we find little in ancient records concerning this place 
except that at an early period it gave names to a resident family, 


John de Alaltby in the reign of Edward I. (1272-1307). This 
family was in possession for several generations, till by failure of 
male issue part of the estate passed to others. It is now in the 
hands of different proprietors." 

The History of Cleveland by Rev. John Graves, has the fol- 
lowing account : 

"The Parish of Stainton consists of the several townships of 
Stainton, Alaltby and others. 

''Alaltby lies about a mile to the west of Stainton. The village 
is small, consisting of a few farm houses and cottages situated on 
the summit of a sfentlv elevated ridee. 



'Alaltby temp. Doomsday consisted of 3 caracutes ad geldum. 
. . ." According to Kirkby's Inquest we find (1272-1307) '7^^^ 
de ^laltby held 6 caracutes of land here of the fee of Walter de 
Fancouberge where ten made one knight's fee. This family con- 
tinued in possession," etc., "till by failure of male issue"^' a part of 
their estate passed by marriage to the Morleys of Xormanby after 
alverated to the Pennymans of Ormsby. The other moretv of their 
estate in the reign of Car. I. ( 1625- 1648) came to Sir George 
Wentworth of Woolley, Kt.. by marriage with Averall, daughter 
of Christopher ]\Ialtby, Esq., Alderman of York." 

Graves Hist, of Cleveland, p. 444, has the following pedigree : 
''Nicholas ^lorley of Xormanby, Co. Y^ork, 24 Hen. VL, m. 
Joan, dau. of John Hedlam, Esq., 24 Hen. \'I. Their son, Chris- 
topher ]\Iorley of X^ormanby in Cleveland, Esq., had Robert 3iIorley

erset. To the courtes}' and kindeness of Mr. Harte, whose wife is a ]\Ialtby, 
we owe a. vast amount of valuable and interesting material concerning the 
Maltby famih'. The help Mr. Harte has given the compiler with heraldry, 
explanation of old English forms and so on, has been of inestimable value.) 

To return to ^liss Barnard's comprehensive study of our name: 
"Maltby (St. Bartholomew's), a Parish, \\'est Riding, of county 
of Y^ork, 830 inhabitants. Parish contains 3919 acres. Church,

Cobbett, London, published by Wm. Cobbett, 1832, also gives "Maultby, Co.

* rGraves History of Cleveland, pp. 476-81.) "Failure of Male Issue. — 
This does not mean a total failure. It only means that tlie owner of the 
estate died leaving a daughter (or daughters) only who inherited the 
estates — but these daughters may (and very probably had) have had 
uncles (brothers of their father) and first cousins of the name of Maltby." 


it seems likely that they took their name from the land on which 
they dwelt, the common practice at that time. 

"At first one name was considered entirely sufficient for an 
individual, but as the population increased the necessity for some 
added designation became urgent; and the surname was the result. 
It came into use in different countries at different times. 

"In England surnames came into general use about the time 
of the Xorman Conquest, before which time some added sobriquets 
or epithets, and perhaps a few heridatary surnames were used, bur 
they were first recorded in the public documents at this time, and 
became essential for the identification of the in(li\-idual hereafter."' 

(p. 15 j. "Our ancestor took the name of the place ]\Ialtby. 

"Guffy classifies the name Maltby as English or Welsh, and 
says it is to be found at present in three counties of England : Derby- 
shire (7), Lincolnshire (8), Nottingham (241. [The numbers in- 
dicate there are about that many in 16,000 inhabitants.] 

The following explanation given b\- ]\Iiss Barnard of the term 
freemen will be found very interesting: 

(page 16). "The freeman is he who possesses enough land to 
feed himself and family. He aided in the government, making, 
apphing and executing the laws, and as a burger was one of the 
representatives to the national parliament. 

"If a freeman became the owner of one hide (from 33 to 120 
acres) of arrable land (with which he would be entitled to a pro- 
portionate amount of meadow and forest for his horses, cattle and 
hoes) he was elected a noble or earl bv his fellow freemen and 
then became eligible to be elected priest, judge or king. 

''Below the freemen in the social scale were the stranger, the 
freedman and the serf." 

\A'e give one or two more facts concerning the name Maltby 
and thf. numerous ways in which it is spelled. "Maulsby Geneal- 
ogy." P- 349 : 

'There is at least presumptive evidence that the surname ]\Ialtby 
arose independently in each of the three places, as it is found as 
De ]\[altebv on the Rotuli Hundredorumb 1273 in both Xorfolk 
and Lincolnshire, and as De IMaltby on the Poll Tax List of the 
West Riding of Yorkshire in 1379." 

Descendants will please note the following — for many pf us have 
been skeptical as to the ]\Iawtby's of Xorfolk being of the same 
name as ]^Ialtby. 

"The Xorfolk ^lalteby became ^laultby and then ?^Iautby and 
as a surname further deteriorated into ^lawbie and ]\Iawby. 


"The name Maltby indicates a Danish settlement in which the 
malster phed his ancient trade. 

''The prototheme is Old Xorse malt, which is cognate in 
etymology and identical in meaning with the old Saxon malt ; the 
Old Kigh German. Middle High German and German malz ; the 
Middle Low German molt and malt ; the Dntch mout ; the Danish 
and Swedish malt; Anglo Saxon mealt ; (p. 350) ^Middle EngUsh 
malte, mault and malt, and the Scotch-English maut. 

'"The denterotheme By is our most common Scandinavian suf- 
fix in place-names, and is an infallible proof that the Dane was once 
in the land. It appears in Danish and Swedish as By ; in Xorwe- 
gian as Bo ; in Old Xorse as Bast and Bry, and was loaned into 
Anglo-Saxon as By or Bye. It is derived from the old X'orse Bua, 
"to dwell" and originally rlenoted a "dwelling." then a "farmstead" 
and later "a village or town." Domesday Book tom. II., fol. 134b." 

This ver\' comprehensive philological account of the name 
^laltby, explains conclusively why the name is claimed as Danish, 
Swedish. Xorwegian and English. It should also settle the ques- 
tion as tfj the correct way of spelling the name. 

In compiling the Alaltby Genealogy it has been clearly shown 
that where members of the same family resided in close proximity an 
endeavor was made for one famil\- to change the spelling of the 
name. This is not only true of the English families but is practiced 
in our own times in the States, where in one instance Maltbey is 
used as a distinctive mark ; another uses ]^Ialby and a third Molby. 
although they unquestionably belong to the same Maltbv familv. 

A few extracts from personal letters to the compiler are ap- 
pended ; they come from Englishmen conversant with genealogical 
matters, who were kind enough to offer suggestions concerning 
English research work. 

Hylton B. Dale, Esq., writes: "In searching indexes for the name 
(i. e. Maltby ) it is as well to look under 'Man' as well as *AIal,' as 
the name was frequently spelled 'Mautebv.' " 

"The name ?\Ialtby is rare." — J. Harvev Bloom. 

"The Mautebys, Mawtbys or Maultbys were an old Xorfolk 
family." — Reginald C. Duddine. 

"There was a good family of the name witli a pedigree entered 
in one of the i6th or 17th \'isitations of Yorkshire. In the iQth 
Century there were families of the name in Lincolnshire, Xotts and 
Derbyshire : but in the last named countv it certainly is not an ancient 
name, for there are no ^Faltljy Wills at Lichfield down to about 1^130. 


I have never met with the name in Warwickshire or Statturdshire." 
— Wilham F. Carter. 

"Mahby is quite a characteristic surname of the \'ale of Belvoir 
district, and is frequent also in the more central parts of Notting- 
ham. One of their principal 'habitats" was Orston, a village east of. 
the Trent, about twelve or fourteen miles from Nottingham. Here 
lived a family of that name, of yeoman rank, for several centuries 
— indeed, there is. I think, still a Maltby farming in that parish. 
. . . The name Maltby also occurs in the i6th and 17th cen- 
turies in the parish registers of several parishes in the district l)e- 
tween the river Trent and Southwell." — Thomas M. Blagg. 

"All the Maltbys in Notts and Derbyshire are connected. They 
come from one common stock. The ^laltby family is one of the 
oldest in the midlands . . . Hoveringham branch . . . this 
branch was related to the Brough Maltbys also the ]\Ialtbys of 
Hickling and others of the name at Bawtry (\"orks). . . ." — 
Edward C. Harte. 


The following poem was cut from the New York "Independent" 
in 1867 or 1868 by Aliss Martha T. ^laltby. It was one of the "Sex- 
ton's Tales and Other Poems" of the first collected edition of the 
poems of Theodore Tilton. issued by Sheldon & Co.. New York. 
Maltbv Chapel was very evidently what is now the restored church 
of St. Bartholomew at ^laltbv. 


' ^laltby Chapel, as you know, 
Fell two hundred 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 shed. 

Central in the fair design 

Hung the Sorrowing Man divine. 

Xear him, gazing, knelt or stood 

^Iar3'"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, white 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 ; 
^^'ho. in marching 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; 
I^Ie a knight and cavalier. 
Quoth the leader : 'Rub the stains 
Out of yonder painted panes.' 
Glancing at a mark to strike. 
Then a pikeman raised his pike, 
Drew it back half its length. 
Sent it whizzing through the air, 
Sped it with a pious prayer. 
^^'inged it with a holy curse, 
Barbed it with a 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 Saviour crucified. 
So the weapon that was hurled 
Smote the Saviour of the world; 
Tearing out the sacred tree 
Where he hung for you and me; 
Curving downward, flying 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 she 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 ma}' 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 b_v his anguish dumb. 
Neither words nor tears would come; 
'Till at last with groan and shriek, 
Brokenly 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 us 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, 
Stift'ened every limb and joint. 
Clenched his hands about the blade; 
]^Iuttered words as if he prayed, — 
Then, with one ecstatic breath, 
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 proof, 
Camped his men beneath the roof ; 
Stood defiant for a da}'. 
Fiery as a stag at bay; 
Made a dim defense, but vain, — 
Then in darkness and in rain. 
Fearful of the morrow's fight. 
Stole away at dead of night. 
\\'hen the Roundheads saw with rage 
How the birds had quit the cage, 
The\', in spite, with blow on blow. 
Fought the chapel for a foe. 
So it came that tower and bell 
Roof and spire, together fell, — 
Battered down in name of Heaven. 
April, sixteen fifty-seven. 


It is a bromidic saying that no two people see the same thing 
in the same way, and as this is obviously true we are publishing three 
accounts of visits to the hamlet of ]^Ialtby, Y'orkshire, feeling con- 
fident that all Maltbys will find tiew viewpoints, different observa- 
tions in each article, which are of individual interest. 

The first article is by Miss ^Martha J. Maltby, of Columbus, 
Ohio, who visited ^laltby in 1895. This account appeared in Alaltby 
Booklet Xo. 2 and is reprinted here for the benefit of those who were 
unable to obtain the booklet owing to the entire sale of the issue 
shortly after publication. 

The second accoimt was contained iti a personal letter to the 
compiler from ^liss ^Marion Davenport ^laltbie of Syracuse, a cousin 
of the late Dr. ^NFahbie Davenport Rabcock, and a lineal descendant 
from Ormud de Dauneport. wlio was born in T086. Miss Maltbie 
visited ]\Ialtby in the summer of 1909. 

Our third account of ^Maltby was written from Rotlierliam. 
Y^orkshire, by Mrs. Xeavando A. Eldvado, to her motlier, Mrs. 
James T. Hoblit and at the request of the compiler. Mrs. Hoblit 
consented to allow its publication. 





By Miss Martha J. ]\Ialtby 

When in Y^ork, in 1885, a gentleman remarked upon introduc- 
tion, "There is a parish in Y'orkshire by your name." I was at 
once all attention, but succeeded only in learning that it was an 
ordinary English hamlet which he had once visited in the \\'est 

In 1895 a chance meeting with an English bishop brought the 
second bit of information, for he remarked, upon learning my name, 
"My first living was the parish of Maltby and I remember it with 
pleasure." But our ways parted before I could learn much more, 
or more helpful knowledge as to how to find 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 Dur- 
ham and with the opportunity of questioning the learned archaeolo- 
gist, Canon Greenwell, the president of the British Archaeological 
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 ^laltby be found ? 

He had visited the hamlet on an archaeological excursion and 
remembered it had an r»ld church tower and he gave the much de- 
sired information concerning the way. 

A few days later my friend and traveling companion and I 
broke our journey southward at Doncaster, took a train westward 
for a few miles, leaving it at Conisboro for a seven mile drive 
southward from that station for Maltby. 

Let me note in passing that Conisboro is known for its well 
preserved Xorman tower of tlie castle wliicli Sir Walter Scott 
makes the scene of the tournament in "Ivanhoe," which Rebecca 
reports to the knight. Tlie short way for our trap and driver gave 
us the opportunity to look at the tower. 

Unfortunately a drizzling rain set in as we started for Maltbv 
which is situated uj) a valley froiu Conisboro and the mist shut from 
sight some of what must have been a charmincr view in the heart 
of north English country, could we have seen it in the distance. 
The road wound along between stone walks and English heds^es 
and fertile farms, growing wheat, barley and turnips and with pas- 
turage for cattle and sheep, lay on both sides of the wav. The 
farmhouses had the appearance of comfortable prosperity 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 villag-e school had just closed for the day as we drove 
through Alaltby village to the church whose spire we had seen in 
the distance. To our driver's question of "Where he should take 
us?" we had responded, "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 
Lychgate. built in the ancient style and forming a beautiful entrance 
to the church\ard. They were as ready to answer questions as we 
to ask them. The sexton was mowing the churchyard 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 organist and some of the 
leading parishioners 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 and 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. P>its of what look like Roman bricks are scattered along 
promiscuously in the stone wall. High up from the foundation are 
small windows. 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 workmen used powder to blow them 
up. The tower's first story is some thirty or forty feet in height. 
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 Xorman work. This story ends with a 
paneled 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 tnight have seen Canon Greenwell 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 parch- 
ment and were mildewed with age. I thought I could decipher one 
date as 1609 but I am not sure. 


A\'e conld not learn that anyone of the name of ]\Ialtby was 
resting in tlie churcliyard. or Hved in the parish, within the sexton's 
memory, nor had he ever heard of the name in the records. On 
the last subject he would hardly be authority. He showed us some 
very old carved stones, one of which is supposed 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 churchyard 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 workmen 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 occupied a small plot of ground 
in the heart of the town. 

The houses of the village are simple and plain but comfort- 
able, with the cleanly air so common in England. The streets were 
narrov/ l)nt clean. The whole town looked like a conservative old 
English place, as it is, with trees about its boundaries and in the 
lawns c)i the larger houses. 

?\laltl)y TTall is an old place with some fine trees about it. \Ye 
did not enter it as the hour was growing late and we had a train 
to catch in Conisboro for our return and our journey on to Lincoln 
that night. 

Some weeks later, in the Librarv of the P>ritish ^Museum I 
found what I copied there and give with this for your information. 

It was nearly dark when we were set down at the railwav station 
anrl the hour was decidedly late when I finished writing in mv diarv 
and turned — a tired, liap])\- woman — to retire. I had seen Maltbv 
parish. Whether there is any connection between it and the ]\Ialtby 
name, who can tell us. 

The followin-^ is copied from "Kelly Directory of West Riding 
of Yorkshire, Encrland. 1897." in the Library of the P.ritish Museum,

Syracuse, Xew York. 

October 20th, 1909. 
My dear ]\Irs. A'errill : — 

How I wish you might have been with me this summer while 
I spent five days in the charming little English village which bears 
our name. Thev call it in Y'orkshire the "Oueen of A illas^es." It 
deserves the title ! So quaint and interesting, preserving all the char- 
acteristics of a typical old-time English story-book town. 

First I must tell you that when I was in Chester, the people 
in the hotel on hearing my name at once said, ''There is a ]^Ialtby in 
our long-distance 'phone book," and I had them call them for me, 
just for fun, at Rhye, down on the west coast of England. Such 
astonished people as they were to know that a Maltbie from America 
was on her way to Maltby in England. They were evidently plain 
people; the man, who is a butcher was not there, but his wife, with 
whom I spoke was as pleasant as could be but knew very little about 
the family. They were the only people of the name I heard of in 

From Chester I went to Y'ork and from York back to Rother- 
ham. In the book shops there I found beautiful postcards of Maltby 
and its surroundings. From there, while I waited for the quaint 
old lumbering bus, which runs on certain days to my dear little 
town. I t<H)k trams, first to huge and dirty Sheffield. It is like Pitts- 
burgh. Then to Masboro, a pretty little suburb of Rotherham. 
Rotherham itself has an interesting history. All the country there- 
abouts has, from Chester and York with their old walls and gates 
and cathedrals and towers to Scrooby. ten miles or so the other side 
of ]\Ialtby where Elder Brewster was born and the first Pilgrim 
church organized. 

I left my friends in York and went to ]\Ialtby alone. It was 
quite an adventure. If you could have seen that old stage (looked 
like a "prairie schooner") with seats along the sides and old ladies 
and baskets and boxes and bundles all crowded in together. One 
had to go to an old inn yard in Rotherham to wait for the stage 


driver to "poot oot the horses." I heard real Y'orkshire dialect 
there, driving out. There were five old ladies, one small boy. the 
driver, piles of luggage and myself. It was so funny when we rattled 
up the queer old-fashioned street, out of the inn \ ard where hung 
the old lamp and the arms — everything seemed unreal — and far from 
the busy world. The old ladies wore silk mantillas (I think that is 
it) and bonnets like this. 

( We regret we can not here reproduce Miss Maltbie's clever marginal 
illustration of tlic type of old ladies.) 

They all had volumes to say about Maltb}-. Ijut had never heard 
of a person of the name. They wanted to know all about America. 
When we stopped at other little villages along the seven-mile drive 
to ^ialtby, out came from this inn or that, a pretty barmaid (just 
like Dickens) to take your order for a "wee glass ma'am." The old 
ladies took something as a matter of course, but I went thirsty. 
though I did have two or three glasses of English ale in Maltby. 
The small boy told me all about his home and the chickens he was 
raising and about the queer piece of American money — a cent — he 
owned. He and I sat on the box seat and "Jawhnn}." the driver, 
told us about the country places as we went along, in such a broad 
dialect. I had to listen with all my mind as well as my ears to under- 
stand. Fancy how entertained I was with it all and especially when 
"Jawhnny" informed me that the "American chilled ploo (plough) 
ware na goot — toorned te ert opp taw mooch." 

XoTE. — ''Turned the earth up too much." We believe that the English 
do not plough as deep as we do in the States, as the climate is not so severe 
and it is not necessary. 

Y^ou see the "chilled plough" is made here in Syracuse b\' an 
old friend of my mother's. I told my Y^orkshire friend I'd tell ]\Ir. 
Chase he didn't like the ploughs. 

When we reached ]\Ialtby the old ladies vied with one another 
in suggesting what I should do for a boarding place, ^^'anted me 
to stay with them, but I went to the 'AMiite Swan Inn." It has 
been there five himdred years. ]\Ir. and ]^Irs. Bishop, the landlord 
and his wife, were so nice and did everything to make my stay pleas- 
ant and interesting. ^Nlr. Bishop is an ex-English soldier, invalided 
home from the Boer ^^'ar. but pretty well now. 

A huge fire in the diningroom fireplace cheered and n-armed 
me, for I was cold that August evening. It was all just a picture. 
Tvlrs. Bishop just took care of me. She has Irish blood and conse- 
quently the delightful and winning ways that come with it. Though 



I hey have a gas plant which hghts the larger rooms down stairs, I 
went to my room with its pretty fireplace by candle light — much nicer. 
It was a strange sensation and seemed almost like getting home. 
You see I am doubly Maltbie, because both my father and mother 
were ]^Ialtbies ; so if there is anything in the call of the blood I 
ought to have felt it there — and I did. 

If you have ever gone rapidly from place to place for almost 
three months, seeing daily the most wonderful sights, historical and 
artistic as well as Nature's own marvelous pictures of peoples and 
countries, vou know how welcome is a halt. I cannot tell vou how 


glad I was to be far away from trams and trains and busy crowds 
and just rest and do nothing some of the time there in peaceful little 

Sundav mornine: I went to the historic church and listened to 
a sermon given to a small handful of people. But what I most en- 
joved was wandering: about the church and churchvard bv mvself. 
The sexton, of course, got out all the records in the little tin box 
Miss Martha Maltby speaks of, and we could make out Latin records 
back of 1600. However, at that time most of the people were sim- 
ply spoken of as John de ]\Ialtby or Jane de Maltby, no surnames 
given. It cannot be proved who were Maltby by name or who just 


so and so of ^laltby. After the records began to be in English it 
was easy to read but in the memory of the oldest inhabitant no 
Maltby has lived there or been buried there. The church was burned 
once and many records destroyed, and these old parchment books 
are not being carefully preserved. In the city of Y'ork, duplicates 
would possibly be found. . . . ]\Iiss ]\Ialtbie here tells of her trip. 
she visited ten countries, and found them all "wonderfully inter- 
esting, but England was home." 

To return to Mahby. ]\Ir. and IMrs. Bishop owned five ''blue 
ribbon" English carts and ponies and they drove me miles ( one 
day twenty-five) over those perfect pavement-like English country 
roads to Old Cote and Scrooby. where we lunched, then on to Baw- 
try, two miles from Scrooby. It was Johnathan ^^laltby of Bawtry 
whose name I remember seeing in our large Genealogy. 

It is an attractive town and so near to Scrooby where Elder 
Brewster lived and preached that no doubt our ancestors knew those 
old Scrooby Pilgrimites. They were repairing the old Scrooby 
Manor, where Elder Brewster was born, and the woman who lives 
there now gave me a piece of the old oak beam. I treasure it, I 
assure you. 

Back of this very old building ( It was originally some five hun- 
dred vears ago, a Catholic monastery ; think of the irony of fate 
which made it the home of the Pilgrim church) is a little creek 
wliich flows into the River Trent, and down that creek and river 
floated the Pilgrims and thence across the English Channel to 
Leyden and so to America. W'e had not time in Bawtry to look up 
church records for the ^NFaltby name, but the Bishops have promised 
me they will go and do it some time. Then we went to Canisboro 
and Tickhill — where are the old castles — and Stone, another village. 
Another day I walked over to Roche Abbey, over the stone and 
wooden stiles, alonq- Maltby Crags, through the beautiful Norwoods 
and back around by the road. A five mile tramp. Some people I 
met 2:ot the "Historv of Roche Abbev" from the Rotherham safe 
for me to read. It tells in that, that all that land was held by the 
Earl of ]\Ierton, brother of William the Conqueror : he also held 
much land in Lincolnshire and there, is a town of ]\Ialtby there. 
Do you suppose there is any connection in these facts? 

^laltby is on the direct road from London to York. Dozens of 
automobiles fly through and scores of cycles, motor and otherwise. 
Most of them stop at the White Swan for rest or refreshment. 
Roche Abbey, which Lord Scarborough keeps open on certain days, 
is an objective point for many parties from Sheffield, Rotherham and 
Doncaster. Several wealthy people from these cities have summer 


homes in ]\Ialtby. Y^oii know, of course, that the stone for the 
Houses of Parhament in London, was brought from one of the many 
fine quarries at ]\Iahby. Xow they are mining coal on Lord Scar- 
borough's estate and speculators plan to remodel the cunning place. 
It is a shame, but the "love of money is the root of all evil." 

Two railroads are near to Maltby now. One station two miles 
and another a mile and a half. Xo passenger trains yet, but there 
will be in time and our quaint little place will all be changed. 

You have no idea how strange it seemed to see my name on the 
mile posts all over the county of Y^orkshire. Just see the length of 
this letter — and still I could tell you more. 

If any of the ^laltby family want to see our quaint little ]\Ialtby 
town still unspoiled, let them hurry over to England, for in a year 
or two many changes are going to take place there and much of 
the charm wall be gone. 

I forgot to tell you — I went to the grammar school and the 
children recited for me. The first hour of the day is given to the 
study of the catechism. Isn't that English? 

Y'^ours most sincerely, 

]\Iariox Davenport ^Maltbie. 


Rotherham, 17 June, 1910. 

. . . Rotherham is indeed a dull place, but I found that not 
eight miles distant was the village of Alaltby, and a mile further on, 
Roche Abbey, so I have something besides Durham Palace about 
which to write. . . . 

We arrived in Rotherham Sunday, at 1:30 P. M., and aftei 
dinner Xeavar suggested a drive, it being a beautiful day. So 
he rented a horse and trap and we drove to Daltan \Yllage. Here 
we stopped at a farmhouse and drank some fresh milk and ate some 
tea cakes. Then, returning to town by a dififerent route, I noticed 
a signboard which read, "7 miles to ^laltby." That settled it ! Wc 
must go to ]\Ialtby : l:)ut it was too late to go so far, so we set 
Thursday for our "excursion" into the past. 

Y^esterday being the appointed day (and a lovely June day 
too) we set out for Maltby with the same horse and trap : and what 
a fine drive, up hill and down, past green meadows with buttercups 
and through tiny old-fashioned villaq-es. At last we came to Maltbv 
— the prettiest old village of all — the Parish church nestling down 
in the valley, just like the picture postcard I sent you. I wanted 
to see the church register and records but the clerk was not in the 


village, so I left, disappointed in that respect. AMien yon come we 
shall go together, mother, and hnnt it all np. A\'e next went to 
Alaltby Hall, where now resides Lady \'iolet Smithe. The Smithes, 
however, were not "in residence," so I saw only the exterior of 
the Hall — a charming place, in whose gardens I tried to picture 
Alaltbys strolling about. 

But, as interested as I was in ^Nlaltbv, we "tore ourselves awav," 
to drive on a mile further to Roche Abbey. A steep, winding roadway 
leads down into a valley in which stand the ruins of Roche Abbey. 
This is the most beautiful spot iji England. It simply beggars de- 
scription. Such a vale, with rocky, shaded, fern covered banks, and 
broad green pastures ; such myriads of wild flowers, brackets, 
springs, and waterfalls, shade and simlight, and in the midst of it 
all, those grand, gray ruins. Lucky Abbot and monks who discov- 
ered such a secluded garden of Eden in which to build their home. 
Xear at hand are a few dear old cottages and in one of these, you 
and I are going to spend a week, when you come to me, mother. 

Enclosed is a bit of iv\- 1 plucked from the abbey walls. Oh. 
that lovely ravine, with the cattle and sheep giazing peacefully in 
the meadows and within a few yards, the old abbey mill and stone 
quarry ' 

The drive back was a quiet one, as we could think of nothing 
save the beauties we had seen. ... I wonder why the IMaltbys 
ever left so lovely a place. ... 

?^[rs. Eldorado has resided abroad for some vears. In iQog 
she returned to London after having made an extended trip to South 
Africa and through Xorthern Europe. \Mien the above letter was 
written she was touring England with her husband. We regret we 
have not space to print two exceedingly interestins^ letters written 
by her about Durham — its cathedral, palace, university and the town. 

In "Highways and Byways in Yorkshire," Arthur H. Xorways 
says of INIaltby : "Deep below the road a valley runs, closed at length 
by the shoulder of a hill, on which the red-roofed A'illao^e of ^laltby 
stands shining pleasantly in the evening sun. It is a pretty spot. 
The crags are fantastically piled : a few sheep go browsins: in and 
out among them, and from the depths of the valle}', coming out of 
I know not what cool region, there blows a keen and stimulating 
air, growing sharper as the sun drops lower in the sky. . . . " 

An extract from T. Allen's "A X'ew and Complete History of 
the County of Y^ork," London. 1831. \'ol. 5, pp. 193-203: 

^laltby is a small parish town, situated four miles and a half 
from Tickhill, and seven and a half from Rotherham. In 1821, the 


population of this town amounted to six hundred and seventy-nine 

Alaltby, in common with the great majority of our vihages, 
first presents itself in the pages of Domesday. \\'e there find, that 
in the time of the Confessor, Elsi had held four carucates in ]\Ialtebi 
and Helgebi. and that now Roger de Busli has five carucates in 
demesne and thirteen villains, and eighteen borderers, with eighteen 

The manor of Hooton-Levit consisted of three carucates and 
six borates, before the conquest; six quaranteens in length and as 
many broad. Bugo held it. (Query: Should this not be Hugo?) 
He was superseded by the Xorman. who had here in demesne one 
carucate and there were eight villains and three borderers, who had 
three carucates. There was a mill, valued at 28d. It is now the 
property of the Earl of Scarborough. 

The constitution of the church of ?vlaltby was peculiar. The 
patrons presented a rector, but the rector changed his office into 
a sinecure, being allowed to nominate a perpetual vicar for the 
performance of parochial duties. A vicarage was ordained under 
the circumstances on 12 Ral. Feb., 1240. when there was assigned 
for the support of the vicar, the altarage, tithe of hay and of the 
mills and four marks per annum, to be paid by the rector. 

It is valued in the Liber regis at £4, 13s. 4d : in the parliamen- 
tary returns at £30. and is in the patronage of the Earl of Scar- 
borough. The rectory was very valuable. In Pope Nicholas Taxa- 
tion, it is estimated at £26, 13s, 4d. The presentation of the vicar 
came, at the dissolution, to the crown. 

The church, which is dedicated to St. Bartholomew, comprises 
a nave, chancel and south aisle, with a tower and spire at the west 
end. It is a small and mean buildinf^. forming a remarkable con- 
trast to the orice magnificent church of the Cistertians. who had 
established themselves in its vicinity.

was founded here by one of the earls of Castleton, and is repaired 
by his heirs. 

The foundation of the abbey of Sancta Maria de Rupe, or 
Roche abbey, was the most splendid act of piety of the earlv lords 
of Alaltby and Hooton. But, though they were accounted the 
founders, because they gave the site, the monks must have done 
much for themselves, and had other great benefactors. 

Xo branch of the great Benedictine family took such deep root 
in England, or flourished as luxuriantly as the Cistertian. It is an 
undetermined question, which was the first monastery of this order 
founded in England : but it is no question whether the house of 
Rievaulx, founded by Walter Espec, was not among the first, or 
whether it were not the earliest Cistertian foundation north of the 
Humber. The era of its foundation corresponds with the presidency 
of Harding, and the reign of Henry I. The same feeling of dissat- 
isfaction with the laxity of the Benedictine rule manifested itself 
about the same period, in the great abbey of St. I\Iary. without the 
walls of York. Some of the monks withdrew from that house for 
the purpose of submitting themselves to more austere severities, 
and lived for some time under the shade of a few yew trees which 
grew on the banks of the Skell. This was in 1 132. These were the 
small beginnings of the house of St. Mary de Fontibus, or Fountains. 
The first settlers of Kirkstall came from Fountains. Both adopted 
the Cistertian habit and rule. [Many other houses of this popular 
order were founded in the diocese of Y^ork during' that century. 

The circumstances which were the immediate occasion of the 
early establishment of a company of Cistertian monks at this place 
have not been preserved, neither is it known from what house the 
original societv were a colony. 

From charters preserved by Dodsworth, it appears that in the 
reign of Stephen, that is, not long after the settlement of the Cis- 
tertians at Rievaulx. a few religious had seated themselves near the 
spot where afterwards the abbey arose, and like the original settlers 
at Fountains, who lived for a while under the shade of the \ew 
trees, they appear to have assembled in this place before any build- 
ings were erected to receive them. The expression which occurs in 
both foundation deeds, "Ylonachi de Rupe," monks of the rock, can 
only be interpreted upon the presumption that these sons of an 
austere devotion had placed themselves in the valley, where they 
were screened from the bleak winds of the north by a ran^e of lime- 
stone rock, and were content to practice their devotions under the 
open canopy of heaven.^' 

* Hunter. Vol. I., 266. 



A natural phenomena, probably heightened by art, contributed 
to induce the iponks to make choice of this spot. Amo-ng the acci- 
dental forms which portions of the fractured limestone had assumed, 
there was discovered something which bore the resemblance of our 
Saviour upon the cross. This image was held in considerable rev- 
erence during the whole period of the existence of this monastery 
and devotees v.ere accustomed to come in pilgrimage to "Our Savi- 
our of the Roche." 

On the arrival of these monks, they were welcomed by the two 
lords of the soil on which thev settled themselves, Richard de Busli, 


the Lord of ]\Ialtby, and Richard, the son of Turquis, called also 
Richard de \\ ickersley. 

To be the founders of a iiouse of religion was a distinction of 
which even princes were ambitious ; and the two lords of Maltby 
and Hooton doubtless rejoiced in the opportunity which seemed to 
be afforded them uf connecting their names forever with such a 

By the light wliich the early charters aff'ord, we discern that 
there was a friendly rivalry between the two families, who should 
first take the monks into their protection, and give them for their 
absolute use ground necessary for their holy purposes. It was 


finally arranged in a manner Vv-hich must have been highly satis- 
factory to the monks. The two lords were to convey to them a 
considerable portion of their territory, in which was included the 
rock from which they took their designation. 

The Lord of Maltby's original donation is thus described : The 
whole wood as the middle way goes from Eibrichethorpe to Lowth- 
waite and so as far as the water which divides ]\Ialtby and Hooton : 
also two sarts which were Gamul's, with a great culture adjacent, 
and common of pasture for a hundred sheep, six score to the hun- 
dred, is sochogia de IMaltby. 

The Lord of Hooton gave the whole land from the borders 
of the Eibrichethorpe as far as the brow of the hill beyond the 
rivulet which runs from Fogswell, and so to a heap of stones which 
lies in the sart of Elsi, and so beyond the road as far as the Wolfpit 
and so 1)\- the head of the culture of Hartshow, to the borders of 
Slade Hooton. All land and wood within these boundaries he gave, 
with common of pasture through all his lands, and fifty carectas, 
perhaps loads of wood in his wood of Wickersley. 

The \\hole of the ground comprehended in these two dona- 
tions is described in Pope L'rban's confirmation A. D. ii85, as 
locum ipsum in quo abbatia sita est."^ 

Xeither of these deeds has a date. But the year 1147 was 
assigned as the date of its foundation, by the uniform tradition of 
the house. 

The architecture of the portions of the building which remain 
may be referred to that era. There is such an exact conformity 
with the style of Kirkstall. that the church of Roche evidently be- 
longs to the same age, and ^Ir. Hunter says that it may almost be 
affirmed that it was built upon a design sketched by the same archi- 
tect. It is evident, therefore, that the monks, as soon as they re- 
ceived the grant of the soil, set themselves about erecting their 
church and apartments for their own residence. Their church was 
built upon an extensive and magnificent scale, and it cannot be sup- 
posed that the burden of its erection rested solely on the lords who 
gave the land, though they would, without doubt, be forward in 
the pious design. It is indeed one of the great difficulties attend- 
ing our monastic antiquities, to account for the command of labor, 
which must have been vested somewhere, directed for the prepara- 
tion of so many noble houses of religion as arose during the twelfth 
century, while England was distracted by foreign and intestine war. 

* Hunter, Vol. I., 267. 


The following is a correct list of the abbots of this house : 

Durandus was the first abbot. His presidency extended from 
June, 1 147 to 1159. 

Dionysius, 1159 to 1 171. 

Roger de Tickhell, 1171 10 11 79. 

Hugh de A\^adworth, 1179 to 1184. He appears to have been 
an active superior as in his time a confirmation from the Pope was 

Osmund had a much longer presidency that any of his predeces- 
sors, namely from 1184 to 1223. He had been the cellarer of Foun- 
tains abbey. In his time King Richard I. released the house from a 
debt of 1300 marks to the Jews, perhaps not very honestly. 

Reginald, 1223 to 1238. 

Richard, 1238 to 1254. 

Walter, 1254 to 1268. 

Alan, Jordan, Philip. 

Thomas confessed canonical obedience to the archbishop, 1286. 

Stephen professed canonical obedience 1287. 

John, 1300: Robert, 1300; William, 1324. 

Adam de Gykelkwyk. 1330 to 1349. In his time the Earl of 
Warren gave the rectory of Hatfield for the increase of the number 
of monks. 

Simon de P»ankewell professed canonical obedience, 1349. 

John de Aston. 1358. Robert, 1396. 

John Wakefield, 1438. In his time ]\Iaud, Countess of Cam- 
bridge, made her will at the monastery, and directed that her re- 
mains should be interred there. 

John Gray, 14^15; William Tikel, 1479; Thomas Thurne, i486; 
\\'illiam Burton, 1487; John Morpetti, 1491 ; John Heslington, 1503. 

Henry Cundel. abbot at the time of the dissolution. The date 
of the surrender is June 23, 1539. Of the seventeen monks who 
joined him in the surrender, eleven were alive in 1553. 

The stock of the abbey at the period of the dissolution consisted 
in three score oxen, kine and young beasts, five cart horses, two 
mares, one foal, one stas:, sixscore sheep and fourscore quarters of 
wheat and malt. The plate was very moderate. 

The revenues of the house are estimated by Cromwell's visitors 
at £170 per annum and the debts are said to be £20. 

Of the fabric of the abbey only a gateway, placed at the entrance 
to the precincts on the side towards Maltby. and some beautiful 
fragments of the transepts of the church remain. The gatewav is of 
later architecture than the church, indeed so late, and standing at 
such a distance from the monastery, that it might be taken for part 


of the novum liospitum mentioned in the account of the abbey prop- 
erty and which was doubtless erected by the monks for the con- 
venience of persons resorting to the abbey, and especiaUy of the 
pilgrims who came in veneration of the image found in the rock. 
A large mass oi stonework at a distance westward from the principal 
portion which remains of the church, is evidently the base of one side 
of the great western entrance. This admitted to the nave, flanked 
by side aisles, the whole of which has disappeared. Advancing east- 
ward, we arrive at the columns which supported the tower that rose 
at the intersection of the nave, choir and transepts. Much of these 
remain. The eastern walls of the transepts still exist, and enough 
of the inner work to show that in each were two small chapels, to 
which the entrance was from the open part of the transept, and the 
light admitted from windows looking eastward. In this we perceive 
a close resemblance in design to the church at Krikstall [sic], as 
there is also the closest resemblance in some of the minute decora- 
tions. The difference is, that at Kirkstall (spelled both ways in 
author's copy) there are three of these chapels in each transept. 
We may observe at Roche a remarkable peculiarity respecting the 
Northern transept. The north wall must have arisen almost in con- 
tact with the perpendicular rock, and indeed the whole of the north- 
ern side of the church must have been darkened by that rock, w hich 
rises as high as the walls of the abbey themselves. Between these 
side chapels, and extending considerably beyond them, was the prin- 
cipal choir, with lights at the east end and on the north and south. 
And with this the church appears to have terminated, as there is 
nothing to indicate that there was here any lady choir or other 
building beyond. 

On the north side of the choir may be discerned some rich 
tabernacle work a part of which has been painted of a red color. "^ 
This has the appearance of having been canopies over seats or 
possibly over a tomb. 

The ponds in which the monks were accustomed to keep their 
fish, and the mill at which they ground their corn, are still existing. 

Close adjoining to the demesnes of Roche Abbey is Sandbeck, 
^\■hich was once a valuable appendage to the monaster}' and where 
is now the seat of the noble family to whom the site of the abbey and 
much other property in this neighborhood belongs. 

This place is not mentioned in Domesday. The land was then 
either Ivinsf waste or it is included in the survev of the manor of 
]\Ialtby. It first occurs in the 6th year of the reign of Henry III., 

* Hunter's South Yorkshire, Vo. I. 


1224, when it is mentioned as one of the places in which lay the six 
fees and a half which Alice, Countess of Eii, released to Robert 
and Idonea de Vipont. 

Arthur H. Norway in "Highways and Byways in Yorkshire," 
writing of Roche Abbey says: "This path descends in to the valley 
of a little river by whose bank, half buried in the greenery, stands 
the stately gatehouse of Roche Abbey, set close beneath the preci- 
pice from which the monks, seizing the most striking feature of 
their valley with that quick sense of picturesqueness which distin- 
guished the Cistercians, named themselves "monachi de rupe,' Monks 
of the Rock. . . . The warm glow of the afternoon falls into the 
valley in a flood. The little stream gleams with its reflection as it 
steals along beneath the trees. In an open glade a trifle higher up a 
couple of red-roofed cottages stand shining in the sun, and the 
fowls go to and fro clucking in the short grass. In the abounding 
stillness one might fancy that all human life had ceased on the de- 
parture of those who planned and built the lovely walls which are 
now a shattered ruin, waiting in some enchanted slumber till their 
master's hand shall set them up once more in their ancient glory, 
and the sound of chanting roll again through the hollow and over 
the short turf on the limestone crags above. I sit down in the 
shadow of the bank and rest awhile in this, the loveliest spot I shall 
see today."

Through the kindness of the Rev. R. E. H. Duke, we have 
received a photograph of the old church at Maltby, Lincolnshire. 
In a letter bearing the letterhead "^Nlaltby Rectory," 'Mr. Duke 
writes : "The name Alaltby is derived from the Danish Commander 

It is probable that the ]\Ialtbys who were in England prior to 
the Xorman conquest descend from this Danish officer, while an- 
other and quiet distinct branch, derive their descent from the X^or-

to England. 

Mr. Duke adds: ''There are no ]\Ialtbys on the Registers of 
this church."

By Maudk Towxshexd AIaltby 

(Written for the ]\laltby Association) 

The httle creatures of the wild — 
Everyone — God calls His child, 
And yet instills in each small mind 
His age-old law of kind with kind. 

Who knows l)ut that the sturdy oak. 
Though beech surrounded, feels a yoke 
Of closer kinship with a tree which wears 
In distant woods the leaves it bears? 

So as from pine to pine tree tall 
Greatings breathe the world around. 
Let us send forth the rally call 
"Love to our kin wherever found I" 



In Part I. we have endeavored to give as much data as possible 
of the early English ]\Ialtbys and all English pedigrees procurable ; 
notes which should be interesting to all those of ]\Ialtby descent. 

In Part II. we deal almost entirely with the family records of 
W'illiam Maltby, Esq., of Branford, Connecticut, his ancestors and 

As is well known to most of the American branch the English 
research work has been carried on by The Maltby Association, and 
most successfully so, owing to the excellent services of Gerald 
Fothergill, Esq., of London. 

There seems to be little room to doubt that the ancestry of 
William Maltby, Esq., has been found back to John Maltby of 
Kexby Hall, Kexbie, Lincolnshire^ whose will was proved in 1557. 
(See Pedigree No. 10, Part I.) 

The earliest ^^laltby record in New England yet discovered i>^ 
on 2^ June. 1664, and reads as follows: Town Records 1662-84, 
page 4 (New Haven, Conn.. Records). "I, underwritten, doe ac- 
knowledge to have Rec'd of John ]^Ialtbie Twenty gall, of Rum 
which I doe promise to make saile of (at or upon my arrival in 
A'irginia) to his best advantage, and likewise to make him Returns 
in the ship with Capt. Newton's goods, or by the first ship to ]\Ir. 
John Rookeby, merchant in Barbadoes, as witness m}- hand this 
Twenty-seventh day of June, 1664. 


Samuel Hopkins. 

This is a true Record of the original Bill, examined and proved 
soe to be this 26th of ye 12th mo. 1666, per me, 

James Bishop, Recorder. 
Recorded at ye desire of John ]\Ialtbie. 

If we turn to Part I. under date 1662. we find John ]\Ialtb}' 
selling his property in East Retford. West Retford, Babworth. 
N'otts. And it would appear that it was from these sales that he 
obtained the capital to start him in business in the Ne\A' World. 
As his father's will read that the houses in Briggate, E. Retford, etc., 



to be sold and £ioo to son John at 21, and the residue for my 
youngest son (Robert) "lately born," we can place the birth of 
John as in 1040-41, 

Another early ]\Ialtb}' record is given below (1664-65) Page 
61, Derby Records, 1655-1710, page 14: 

"This Indenture made the six day of January in the yere of our 
Lord one thousand six hundred sixty foure ; Between Lieutenant 
Thomas AMieler of Pagaset in the Jurisdiction of Connecticut, on 
the one Part & Alexander Bryan of IMilford within the Jurisdiction 
of Connecticut Aforesaid on the other Part, wittneseth that the said 
Lieutenant Thomas \Mieler for a consideration of two hundred 
pounds in hand paid ; hath granted, bargained & sould & by these 
presents doth bargain & sell to & with the afore Said Alexander 
Bryan one parcell of land & houses where in now he liveth & 
oc Cupyeth it being as followeth Bounded with Potaluck River 
South, west Xagatuck River north East & bounded on the North- 
west with trees marked by Towtaemoe Sachem. This Land Contain- 
ing forty acres more or less Scituate & being as aforesaid to have 
and to hold the aforesaid land with all appurtenances thereunto Be- 
longin to him his heirs forever without any Lawful Eviction, Erec- 
tion or mollestation from him the aforesaid Lieutenant Thomas 
AMielcr, his heirs, executors, administrators or assignes or" any of 
them or from any Person or Persons clayming Right from, by or

his heirs, executors, administrators, asigns to save the aforesaid 
allexander Bryan blameless from all former Scales Suits in law 
morgages Debt a Reorages or in Cumbernesses A Rising ffrom 
the premises by any act or acts of his or any of them b\ or from

sure the aforesaid Allexander Bryan that he hath lawfuU Right & 
power To Bargain & Sell the aforesaid Premises & allso that the 
Said Lieutenant Thomas \Mieeler Doth give Allexander Bryan full 
Power to Record the same to himself & to his heirs forever ; in 
witness whereof the afore Said Lieutenant Thomas \Mieler hath 
hereunto sett his hand & Scale the day & yere above written. 


Note. — -The above record was copied from the printed Colonial Records, 
and it is quite likely the original signature was "Maltbie." The "T"' was of 
course "J" a^ T and J were interchangeable in the early colonial days. This "T 


Mallbier" was. of course, John 2^Ialtby. Alexander Bryan was the grand- 
father of Mary Bryan, who married John ^Maltby about 1670-71. 

The next Alaltby record we have is in 1666, as follows : Xcw 
Haven, Town Records, 1662-1684, p. 100. "Att a Towne meeting 
held at Xew Haven, ffeb. 18, 1666. [1666-67]. 

"Air. John ]\Ialtbie ppounded to ye towne for Admittance as a 
planter to buy as he shall see cause. It was Left to ye Comittee, 
formerl}- appointed by the Towne for admitting of planters. Some- 
time hearafter makeing aplication to ye sd comittee, upon ve testi- 
mony of John Harriman & John \\'inston was admitted." 

In this connection it is well to insert an item which appeared 
in the Hartford "Times," Sept. 27^, 1907. in answer to querv 4,300, 
Maltby-Downing. The answer reads: "Either a Xew Haven, Bran- 
ford or ]\Iilford name." (i.e. Maltby). "The original ]\Ialtbv mar- 
ried a daughter of John Harriman, Alilford." Signed (Ed.). 
Again on Dec. 22, 1910, the Hartford "Weekly Times" had under 
query 6,297: '*X>w Haven genealogist (L. M. C. ) quoted from 
memory of years back; one of my ancestors, John Harriman. wlio 
was one of the first innkeepers in X'ew Haven, harl twin daus^hters, 
and one married a ^^laltby — given name forgotten. ( Xoel Little.)""^ 

Note. — A letter dated "1866" from Ralph D. Smith says: '"I think he" 

(referring to William (1) Maltby) "had two wives — the first, Mary . 

The second who married him certainly was Abigail (Bishop) Maltby." 
Another letter from a friend who was searching the Branford records for 
Maltby-Harrison records wrote: "Somewhere I found an item which, as I 
recall it. gave the name of William Maltby's wife as Mary." It occurred 
to the compiler that perhaps this information was in a Harriman record 
and not a Harrison one. as the lady was looking up Harrisons at the time. 
and might easily have read some Harriman record, mistaking the old writ- 
ing, under the impression she was glacing over Harrison data. The com- 
piler has long been under the impression from genealogical deductions that 

the first wife of William Maltby was Mary . We have as yet found 

no proof that she was a Harriman. but the idea is worth investigating. Of 
course the above references may riot refer to the first wife of William d) 
Maltby, but may apply to a first wife of John Maltby, for technically speak- 
ing, he was the "original" Maltby. So far as is known, however, John 
Maltby. emigrant, had only the one wife. ]Mary Bryan, and certainly he had 
only the two children. John (2), and Mary (2), twins, by her. 

Shortly after the above record we find in the AMnthrop Papers. 
1666-7, ^J^ass. Hist. Collect. A'ol. Mil. Fifth Series Winthrop 
Papers, Part R'.. p. 115. a letter from John Winthrop. Jr., to Rich- 
ard X^icolls. 

* This is an error. Since this went to print it has been conclusively 
r^-oved that John Harriman had no daughter who could have married a 


"Hartford, Mar. 6, 1666 [7]. 

*'I could never }'et heare of arrival of it at Air. Bryan's to 
whom it was directed, at the seaside. Last Friday came a letter 
from Air. Charles Hill of X. London, who was newly arrived fro 
Barbadoes. There was a letter for Capt. Delavall — L nderstanding 
by Ed. Alessinger, by whom I receive yours of Jan. 18, at his re- 
turn fro X. Y^orke, that the report of it (firej was gone beyond 
Alilford as he came thither, whc could not but be at X^ew Y'ork 
tlicn quickly. Air. Alalbye at that time being on his journey thither." 

Letter to Gen. Xicholls. governor of all his Royall Highnesses, 
the Duke of Y^ork, his territories in America at X\ York. The 
Index refers to "Air. John Alaltby (Alalbye)." 

This letter gives us the information that John Alaltby made 
a trip to X'ew Y'ork in the spring of 1666-7 ^^^^ that he had carried 
with him news of some fire. (Was this the fire of London or a fire 
at Barbadoes?) 

To again quote from the AVinthrop Papers. \"ol. A'HL, p. 568, a 
letter from A\'illiam Leete to John Winthrop, Jr. 

''X^ewhaven, Apr. 13. 1671. 

'"1 have herein inclosed Governor Lovelace his letter but the 
instructions are with Air. Eliot for perusall. Here is no nczves with 
us, but of Mr. Maiby's arrival safe at Nevis; that ship he zvent in 
being there east away by herraeane after the goodes Z\.'ere laiided & 
he since gone for England. Goodman Glover of X'. H. saith that 
he heard at Long Island that Capt. Pearce was arrived in England 
safe. There is also much speech about Commission and ffriggots 
coming to X\ E. Sorry to hear of the grief and damage to your 
relations at Antego."^' Signed \\'illiam Leete." 

From the above letter of William Leete, who at this time was 
deputy governor of the Colony of Connecticut, we learn that "Air. 
Alalbye" had arrived safe at X'evis, W. I., prior to April 13, 1671, 
that the goods were landed, and he had gone on to England. From 
the foregoing records it is clearly shown, we believe, that John 
Alaltby was engaged in a West India merchant trade, and up to 
this time we find him the only Alaltby in Xew England. He was 
very evidently the older brother who sold his property at East Ret- 
ford, etc., X'otts, in 1662, and set himself up in business. 

* John Winthrop, Jr.. had a brother. Samuel, who resided at Antiguar, 
of which island he was deputy governor. Tlie idea has sometimes pre- 
sented itself to the compiler that the first wife of William Maltby may 
have been a Winthrop, possibly this would explain whence came the name 
Samuel in the family of William (1) Maltby. 


There is a very strong point, discovered by Mr. Fothergill, 
namely, that no ]^Iahby was assessed at Retford to the Hearth Tax 
of 1663 (Lay Subsidy RoU, 160-322). This is a most important 
fact as it estabhshes that the ^laltbys had left Retford at this date, 
i.e., the year following the sale of John ]Maltby's property. On this 
visit to England John ^Nlaltby very evidently fetched his two vounger 
brothers and also his cousin, Robert ]\Ialtby of Bawtrw as we shall 
see from both the English and American records. 

If we turn to the English records, under date 1662, where John 
iMaltby sold his property we find "George Holmes and Marv, his 
wife," as part vendors and the idea suggested was that r^Iary Maltbv, 
the widowed mother, had married George Holmes. Farther on. 
in 1664, there is an indenture between various people including 
"William IMaltby of London. Haberdasher of Hats," and the names 
Francis Flolmes and Alexander Holmes also appear. The theorv 
presents itself that if the widow, Mar}' Maltbw did marry George 
Holmes and moved to London, that William might have gone with 
her, or already have been in London, possibly, almost probably, with 
London relations. Hence the tradition that our emigrant ancestor 
"came from London." 

The above is only a theory and as a William Maltb_\-. Haber- 
dasher of IvOndon died about 1664-5, this may be one and the same 
person, and in no way connected with the Retford ]\Ialtb\s, but 
in genealogical research, every clue or theory is worth following 
till it ends in failure. 

To return to the Xew England records: Xew Haven, Conn., 
records, p. 165. 

"Dec. 29, 1671. 

"Mr. Robert [Maltbye. Sr., and Robert Maltbye, junior, being 
present with them in drinking, but noe disorder appearing & they 
strangers were dismist with a caution for the future. 

''Robt Maltby. Sr., was minded of his disorder ye other night 
before Authorities as being Distempered with drinke. He acknowl- 
edge his evill & sd he was fasting and had been drinking wine with 
a stranger v;hich distempered him. He was sentenced to pay ten 
shillings fine but pleading his lownes & ye wrong he had sustained 
in his coming from England & being to return again it was 
not required of him." 

This record requires careful study and it may be well to analyze 
its contents. First, we find the prefix of respect applied to Robert 
]\laltbv, Sr. Secondlv we must remember that in Colonial davs 


**Sr." and "Jr." did not apply to father and son. but was a distinc- 
tion of age between those of the same name and might apply to 
uncle and nephew, or to cousins, as it evidently did in this case. 
Third, we find them called "strangers," so we may be sure they had 
but recently arrived in the Xew Haven Colony and what more 
likely than that they returned with John ]\Ialtby, older brother, 
to Robert Jr. and cousin to Robert Sr.. whom we saw en route for 
England in April 1671. and returned with his relations by Dec. 
1671 (see also record following). Xext let us consider the "dis- 
order'' of Robert. Sr. This may have been a new occurrence with 
him, but if we turn to the will of his older brother, \Mlliam ^Nlaltby 
of Bawtrv, 1665, we find a lack of confidence in his brother Robert, 
and he leaves all his houses and lands, etc., to his youngest brother 
Daniel and his sister Barbara, and after their deaths to his cousin 
William Stokeham. His bequest to his brother Robert is "£5" — the 
same sum that he left his "cousin John ]\Ialtby" — i.e.. the John 
]\Ialtby who we believe brough Robert ]\Ialtby of Bawtry to Xew 
England. He also left his "cousin William IMaltby, ^5." (i.e., Wil- 
liam ]\laltbv, brother of John, emigrants) also to his "cousin Jane 
Turnell." (Query: Was this Jane Maltby, sister of John, William 
and Robert of Retford? If so, did she marry, first. Robert White? 
See Agreement, dated 1662.) 

To return to the Xew Haven record. Robert Maltbye, Sr., 
pleaded "his lowness and ye wrong he had sustained in coming from 
Ensrland & beine^ to return ac:ain." I think "his lowness" in this 

ir> c_> <r> 

instance refers to the expense he had been to in coming to X'ew 
England. By the will of his father in 1660. he was to have "the 
bouse I now live in" (i.e., at Bawtry) "land called Catts I^ethey 
Moore, land at Springthorpe in Lincolnshire." Xow we find that 
Robert Maltbv sold this house in Bawtry about the time he went 
to Xew England. This appears in an abstract from the will of one 
Richard Beare of Bawtry, will dated 1672, and is only of interest 
to us because he leaves his "daughter Mary Boare a house in Baw- 
trev wherein one Elizabeth Carbonell now dwelleth. lately purchased 
of Robert Maultby and John Phillips. Dated 6 August. 1672." X^o 
doubt the sale of this house gave him funds for his voyage to X'ew- 
England. His cousin. John ^Nlaltby. probably thought that in the 
"new world" Robert might acquire the good fortune which seemed 
to elude him at home. But the sale of this house was not his one 
source of revenue for under Maltby vs. Maltby in 1672-3 ('when 
Robert Maltby had evidently returned to En<^land ) we find his 
brother, Daniel Maltby, stating that "Robert Maltby borrowed £50 
from Robert Lancrlev of Bawtrv and for securitv mortq^a^fed three 


messuages in Bawtry. Langley conveyed his interest in the mort- 
gage to Daniel ^lahby and Robert Mahby has failed to pay the 
principal and interest." 

Again we hnd that the widow, Anne ]\Ialtby, mother of Robert 
]\Ialtby of Bawtry, seems to have left her property to the children 
of Robert and not to him, which would also indicate that there was 
lack of confidence in him. And we find, 15 June, 1673, Robert 
]\Ialtby, guardian, trying to recover rents, he claimed due his infant 
daughter Sarah. Robert Coulston of Cottingham was agent Cor 
Anne ]\Ialtby, the elder, as collector of rents and he was ''ready to 
perform the trusts." 

We have seen from the aboA'e that two Robert Maltbys were 
in Xew Haven on Dec. 29, 1671, and that Robert. Sr., was going 
to return. We shall now see that the name of IVilliani Maltby ap- 
pears in Xew Haven for the first time about this time, and that 
Robert Maltby, Jr., evidently remained in Xew England. The record 
is dated 29 March, 1672, three months later than the preceding rec- 
ord and is as follows: Town Records, Xew Haven, 1662-1684. p. 18:

Martha R. Roundketell 

This, so far as is known, is the first record of William ]\Ialtby 
at Xew Haven. Scarcely more than a month later we find on the 
New Haven register, "Born, Mary, daughter of Mr. \Mlliam 
Maltbye," p. 131. 

This shows us that William ^Maltby was of Xew Haven in ^Nlay, 
1672, that he must have had his two oldest children, John (2) and 
Jane (2) prior to coming to Xew Haven. Where these two oldest 
children were Ix-rn and the dates of birth are not known, nor is the 
name of their mother, the first wife of William Maltl)y. Ralph 
D. Smith, in a letter dated 1866. states, referring to John (2), son 
of William (i), "He lived in Saybrook all of his life and died in 
August. 1727, aged 57," hence born in 1670. Where Mr. Smith 
found his authority for this statement is not known, but very prob- 
ably from his tombstone in Savbrook, which has likelv been loncf

since destroyed. His sister, Jane (2). may have been a twin sister. 
She married David Parker at New Haven. 4 ]\Iarch. 1689-90. 
From these records we deduce that W'ilham ( i ) ]\Ialtby was mar- 
ried about 1669. 

A year from the time we find the birth of ?^Iary (2) ]\Ialtby 
at Xew Haven, we have the record of W'ilham Maltby purchasing 
his homestead and land at Branford, Conn., and this deed is wit- 
nessed by "Robert Maltbye" under date "April 16, 1673." There 
seems to be every reason to believe that this Robert Maltbye was 
William's younger brother, the Robert Maltby. Jr., who was a 
"stranger" in Xew Haven, "Dec. 29, 1671," and that he was the 
Robert Maltby. son of John, of East Retford, Notts., born in 1648: 
hence he would have been twenty-five years of age when he wit- 
nessed the deed, a copy of which we give imder the date ^^^j;^. 

This is the last record discoverable of Robert Maltby. He 
may have returned to England or removed to some other place. It 
is possible he may be the "Sergeant Malby" mentioned in 1697. (see 
"America and West Indies," p. 7,2^^, \'ol. X.) but this is hardlv 
probably as he would have been nearly fifty years old. There 
is a record in AOl. \'I.. p. 366. from Abstracts of records of all 
grants made in South Carolina in 1^82. which seems more likely 
to refer to the Robert Maltby above. It reads: "Robert Maltev, 
Town Lot, 23 March. 1682." As this copy was made from the 
printed abstracts it is very likely that on the original the name 
Alaltey is spelled ]\Ialby or Maltby. This would account for the 
tradition that "there were three Maltby brothers emigrated to X'ew 
Ene^land. one of them o-oins^ to A'ircinia." The fact remains that 
there are early Maltby records in X'ew Enirland which as yet seem 
impossible to trace to William and John Maltby. 

There is little more known of John ]\Ialtby, emigrant, and may 
as well be summarized here. He maried Mary Bryan, daughter of 
Richard Bryan, she born at Milford in 164/-' (It is well to note 

* This is an error. T\'. A. X. of Bayonne, N. J., kindly sent the foHow- 
ing notes on the Bryan-Maltbys to the Hartford '\A'eekly Times. Note 
12.202: "In the town records, on a loose scrap of paoer. I found a note 
giving- the date of Mary Bryan's birth as Februarv_15, 1 6 49. As the first 
two leaves are missing from this book from 16.39 to^/bout 1653, there is no 
proof that this note is correct as to the time of her birth; but as the town 
record shows John Maulbie (Maltby) and Mary Bryan, daughter of Richard 
(merchant), were married February 2S, 1666, it certainly seems more likelv 
that she was born in 1649 than 16o4. From the church records of Milford, 
Conn., under baptisms, is the following: May 21. 1654. Mary, daughter of 
Mary, wife of Richard Briant. and Alexander, her son.' 'Sept. 3, 1654, 
Hannah, daughter of Mary, wife of Richard Briant.' The town record has: 
'Hannah Bryant, daughter of Richard Bryan, was born on the last of 
August 1654.' From the above it seems very evident that Mary Bryan was 
born in 1649. She would have been seventeen in 1666 when she married, 
whereas were her birth placed in 1654 she would have been only twelve 
years old on the date of her marriage." 


that her sister, Hannah Bryan, married John Harriman of EUza- 
bethton. Province of Xew Jersey, as we find on ]\Iilford Records, 
Vol. 3. p. 1 88, 8 July, 1677, a bequest of "iso to the sd John Harri- 
man upon the ack. of his wife are from the estate of sd ^Ir. Richard 
Bryan, her father.") It will be seen that ^lary Bryan was at least 
thirteen years the junior of John ]\Ialtby ; most records say she was 
married "about 1670" but a record taken, I think, from the Baldwm 
Genealogy, p. 1324-1397, says: "She married (i) John ]Maltby. 
Feb'y 28, 1666, of Xew Haven, Conn., d. about 1671." 

This record would make her but twelve or thirteen when mar- 
ried, and John ^laltby was not dead in 1671, as the N'ew Haven 
Records give the birth of his son, John (2), as "Born, John, son 
of John ]\Ialtby, i June. 1^)73.' The Strong Genealogy says Alary 
(2) Alaltby was a twin with him, but I did not find her name on 
the register. He had a sister, Mary (2), however, as is shown in 
the will of their great-grandfather, Alexander Bryan of Milford. 
]\Ir. Bryan made his will before 1679 and mentions: "To grand- 
children" (they were in reality great-grandchildren) "John and 
Mary Maltby. £5." (p. T321, Baldwin Genealogy). He also deeded 
property in 1677 to his "granddaughter, ^^lary. widow of Jolm 
]\Ialtby.'" John ]\ralt1)y was considered to be dead a year previous 
to this, however, for in \'ol. T.. p. 175, of Xew Haven Records, is 
the following :

bye, reported to 1)e lost at sea and ap])rized by underwritters, lOth

As has previously been stated, this Inventory would appear to 
be part only of the property belonging to John ]\Iahby. Where the 
bulk of his possessions were is a quandry, possibly England, or some 
place in the West Indies, or mayhap on Long Island, or at Milford. 
In this inventory we note the "several books/' indicating that he 
cared for the intellectual side of life. Also we may be sure that only 
gentlemen of a good station in life wore gloves at this period. 

Before leaving the subject of John ^laltby, it may be of interest 
to descendants to learn something of his wife's family. The follow- 
ing notes of the Bryan family are from the Xew Eng. Hist, and 
Gen. Register. 


I. Thomas llryan, of Aylesbury. England, bapt. there Sept. 

29th. 1602. His w. was Anna, onl}- child of Robert and Joane 


XoTE. — It is not quite clear whether this was the wife of Thomas or 
his son, Alexander. 

II. Alexander Bryan, son of the above, d. in 1679. He was a 
prominent merchant of Milford, Conn., and with his son, Richard, 
stood in such high credit at Boston that his note of hand passed 
current as bank bills in the present day, says Lambert. From 166S 
to 1673 he was assistant Governor of the Colony of Connecticut 
and in ]\Iilfor(l was one of the purchase trustees. The Hon. Alex- 
ander Bryan was from Ashton Clinton. Bucks., England. 

III. Richard Bryan, son of the above, m. Mary, dau. of Wil- 
liam and Margaret Peyntree. On his death \\'illiain 

Peyntree left a large estate for those days, inventoried. 29 Xov., 
1649, ^t iiooi — 10 — 00, part of which went to his "daughter Mary, 
wife of Richard Bryan of Milford. Conn."

The only one of the three emigrant brothers known to have 
left male descendents was William Alaltby. Esq., b. in 1644-5, ^^ ^^'^ 
know from his tombstone.''' Before taking up an account of his life 
it will be well to compare the family of John and Mary Maltbv of 
East Retford with the Xew England emigrants and also to note the 
names of the children of \Mlliam ^ylaltbv. ( The full sfenealosfv is 
given in Part I., Pedigree X.) We find: John Maltby, Spring- 

thorpe and East Retford, X^otts, Alderman, with wife. Mary . 

His will proved in 1647-8. His children were: 

1. John Maltby, probabl\' b. 1640-41. 

2. Richard Maltby, bapt. 15 Aug., 1642, at Retford, evidently 
d. \()ung. 

3. Jane Maltb}-, eldest daughter. 

4. William Maltby, bapt. 16 March, 1644-45. at Retford. Xotts. 

5. Elizabeth Maltby, youngest daughter. 

6. Robert Maltl)y. bapt. 28 Dec, 1647, '^t Retfor<l. Xotts. 

The births of John. Jane and Elizabeth are not recorded at 
Retford, consequently they were probably older than Richard, Wil- 
liam and, of course, Robert. 

Let us now look at the list of children of \Mlliam Maltby, emi- 
grant, and his first wife name, unknown ( if his second wife, Hannah 
Hosmer, wid. of Josiah Willard. had children we have not been able 
to ascertain it) and of his third wife, Abigail, dau. of Deputy Gov- 
ernor James Bishop. Children by first wife : 

1. John ^laltby, said to have been b. 1670. (We believe 
named for William's father, John, of East Retford.) 

2. Jane ^Maltby. b. probably about 1670-71. She m. in 1689-QO. 
(Was she named for their sister, Jane?) 

3. ^lary ^Maltby, b. May i, 1672. (We believe named for Wil- 
liam's mother. Mary ^Maltby of Retford, perhaps also for 
his wife.) 

4. \Mlliam ^laltby. b. 1673. (X^amed for himself.) 

5. Elizabeth Maltby,'^ b. April 30, 1676. (Was this for his 
sister Elizabeth?) 

* NOTE — This statement is ambiguous. It should read that so ^'ar as is 
known Americans by the name of Maltby descend from T\'illiam, Esq. — for 
^ve know of no descendants of Robert, and the line of .John (1) soon failed 
of male issue. 


6. Daniel Alaltby/^' b. Alay 19, 1679. (Was this not for a 
favorite cousin, Daniel Maltby, of Doncaster, Gent.) 

Children b\- third wife, Abigail Bishop: 

7. Samuel Maltby, b. 1693. 

8. Jonathon ]\Ialtby, b. 1698. These may have been Bishop 
family names. 

Hannah Hosmer was b. about 1639 and m. ]^Iarch 20, 1657, 
Josiah A\'illard of Wethersfield ; as he did not die until 1674 his 
widow could not have been the mother of William ]\Ialtby's four 
children, John, Jane, Mary and William. But she could have been 
the mother of Elizabeth, b. in 1676, and of Daniel, b. in 1679. The 
question is, was she? Between the years 1674 and 1685 we find no 
record of Hannah Hosmer. There can be no questioning the state- 
ment that she was William Maltby's wife, for in ]\Iainwaring's 
Digest of Probate Records in Hartford County, Vol. I., p. 324, is 
the will of Thomas Hosmer, dated ''2/ Feb., 1685" and in it he men- 
tions : "I give unto my daughter, Hannah Malby, £18, which is the 
Reversio due me out of the estate of Josiah Willard of Wethers- 
field. I give unto my son-in-law, ]\Ialby, £5."" . . . "H" any of my 
children shall bring up their children to learning so as to make 
them fit for publique service, to each such gr. child I bequeathe £10 
apiece to be paid them at the age of 21 years." . . . "1 give my 
daughter, Hannah Malby, 40 shillings in money and in case she 
live to be a widow and in want, I do bequeath her £20 more, to be 
paid her as she needs it. 

Sisfned : Thomas Hosmer. 

Proved, i Sept., 1687. 


Thus we find in 1685 her father mentions her as Hannah Malby; 
in 1686, Savage Gen. Diet., calls her wife of W'ilham Maltby ; in 
1687-8, we find her name with William Maltby's on the list of 
church members in Branford. Conn.: in 1689-90, a deed for John 
Yale is witnessed by "William ]\Ialtbie," "Hannah Maltbie." 

These are tlie only references found concerning her. A word 
as to the Hosmer family into which William Maltby married. Sav- 
age Gen. Diet, gives: "Hosmer, Thomas, Cambridge, 1632, then 
called Xewton : brother of the first James, freeman. 6 May, 1635:

The Hosmers were from Hawkhurst. Co. Kent., where tlie 
records of their family go back to 1066. ( \'ide Xote Xo. 1 809-1 by 
M. H. H. B., Boston Transcript. Sept. 28, 1914.) The earliest rec- 
ord possessed by the compiler is of Stephen Hosmer who was buried 
at Hawkhurst, Kent, May 24. 1633. His wife, Dorothy, was buried 
there Feb. 5. 1640. and are buried in the churchyard of the old St. 
Lawrence Church, built in A. D. 1291. Their son, Thomas Hosmer, 
was born at Hawkhurst in 1603. Frances, his wife, was born in 
1602 (Saybrook, Conn.. Record, \'ol. I., p. 130, but 1600 according 
to Boston Transcript ) . Thomas Hosmer came from London to Cam- 
bridge, Mass., in i<^)35 ( Saybrook Record, or 1632, according to the 
Transcript). He died April 12. 1687 and his wife died Feb. 15, 
1675. Their daughter, Hannah, as we have shown, was the second 
wife of William Maltby. 

These Hosmer records are given to show into what class .of 
society our ancestor married, and we find that his third wife was of 
an equal station in life. Abigail, daughter of Deputy Governor 
James Bishop, and widow of John Talmadge. She married John 
Talmadge in 1686. His inventory was taken April 21, 1691. Abi- 
gail Bishop was born in 1659. "Mrs. Abigail Maltbei d. Oct. 24, 
1 710." See tombstone. 

Bishop is a name closely associated with the ]\Ialtby family cf 
Springthorpe, etc.. from whom we claim descent. In fact if this 
pedigree is correct, as we believe it is, then the emigrant Maltbys had 
for their grandmother, a Bishop — Margaret Bishop, who had a 
brother Richard and also ?. brother Robert. In fact it would appear 
that the name Robert in the Maltby family came from the Bishops. 

Wq have endeavored to show from the names of William 
]\Ialtby's children that there was a very close similarity with those 
of his father's family, taking it for granted that John ^laltby of 
East Retford was his father. The fact that this John Maltby died 
when his three sons were but very small children, aged respectivelv 
about eight, four and a month or two old. would account for the 
fact that we find no records in Xew England calling the emigrant 

^laltbys ''sons of ^laltby." as was the case with so manv of 

the early settlers. Another very strong proof that the East Ret- 
ford Maltbvs were the ancestors of the emie^rants is the fact that 


out of the vast number of Maltby records found, the only Wihiam 
Maltby born in 1644-45 (which is the year the emigrant \\'ilHam 
Maltby was born as is proved by his tombstone) is W'ilHam ]\Iahbv, 

son of John and ^lary ^lahby, born at East Retford, March 

16, 1644-45. 

Another strong piece of evidence is the fact that no Alaltby 
was assessed at Retford to the Hearth Tax of 1663. Xo Mahbv was 
taxed at Bawtry circ. 1671. In fact there is every reason to beheve 
that the John, WllHam and Robert of East Retford, are the John, 
WilHam and Robert of Xew England, and thus far nothing can be 
found to disprove this theory. 

Some of the ground covered by Mr. Fothergill in his researches 
for this Alaltby material included: Feet of Fines, Y^orkshire. 1603- 
1666; Feet of Fines, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and ]\Iixed 
Counties, 1 659-1 673 : Chancery proceedings, 1558-1758, Plaintiff's 
side only; Inquisitions, Post ^Mortem, 1558-1649; Lay Subsidy Rolls, 
Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire Close Rolls ; Prerogative Court 
of Canterbury, 1604-1719; Exchequer Proceedings, Nottingham- 
shire; King's Bench Deeds, 1 656-1 675 ; Indentures, 1647-1671 ; 
Yorkshire ^larriage Licenses; Wills at Y^orkshire, 1636-1700; Baga 
de Secretic. 

As, to the lay mind, many of the above terms convev no intelli- 
gence, a short explanation is appended. 

Pedes Finium, or Feet of Fines. — The conveyance of land bv 
Feet of Fines was very often resorted to ; they are of first class 
importance, as the vendor joins with his wife and children or other 
heirs in order to dock, dower or entail. ( For example see under 
date 1662, Part T.) 

Chancery Proceedings. — The pleadings in the Court of Chan- 
cery are of the highest importance as sources of genealogical in- 
formation, some of them giving as many as nine generations of 
pedigree, and others even give abstracts of all the deeds in the fam- 
ily muniment room for three hundred years. Besides the general 
value, they are of great help to Americans, as setting out a claim 
1\v descent, they frequently account for some missing relative, by 
stating that he is now in America in parts beyond the seas. These 
documents are practically a virgin field, never having been worked 
out suit by suit as Mr. Waters did the wills in the P. C. C. It 
will be observed that Mr. Fothergill searched the plaintifif side only. 
The chancery suits on the defendant side should be searched but it 
requires much time, as only the plaintifif side is alphabetically ar- 
ranged and we had not the funds to render this possible. 


Inquisitions Post ^lortem. — These give information about the 
larger land owners and are well known as one of the best sources 
of genealogy. (For example see under date 1585, Part I.) 

Lay Subsidy Rolls and Hearth Tax returns are useful, as they 
serve as a directory, giving a clue to the parish. (Example: "Xo 
Maltby in Subsidy, 15 Car. 11. 1663-64 at Corringham. 140-751.) 

Close Rolls. — To explain this we quote from "Some Special 
Studies in Genealogy," by Gerald Fothergill. Esq.. from whose 
works all the explanations of terms have been taken. 

"It seems probable that, in order to find capital for the start 
in the Xew W^orld, the emigrant would sell any land he possessed : 
or, if he was without land, it is to be expected that his father would, 
on giving him a portion, re-settle his estate, and the departing son 
would join in an\' conveyance in order to cut any rights he might 
have in possession or expectancy under any entail that existed. 
Here it should be noted that men of very small estates, even cot- 
tagers, would strictly entail and settle property on themselves and 
wife with reversion to the eldest son and heirs, and failing these, 
to the second, third and fourth sons. etc.. respectively. 

"At different periods the English law has known various ways 
of conveyancing. The statute, 27 Henry \'IH., ca|). 16, provided 
an instrument known as a 'deed of bargain and sale," and it was 
enacted that an estate should not pass by this means only unless it 
v.-as b\- indenture enrolled in one of the Courts of Westchester or 
in the county where the lands lie. If this provision had not been 
evaded, we should have had an almost universal register of con- 
veyances of the freehold, but it was soon defeated by the invention 
of the conveyance of lease and release, which arose from the omis- 
sion to extend the statute to bargains and sales for terms of years. 

]\Iany thousands of the former deeds are enrolled in Chancery 
on the Close Rolls, the s^rantors beins: indexed in the books called 
'Indentures.' kept in the Long Room, and the grantees in the Close 
Rolls index in the Round Room at the Record Office. Others are 
on the rolls of the King's Bench, Common Pleas. Exchequer, etc. 

The great attack on the C English) records should start with 
the wills, they being the very backbone of all pedigree research. 
By far and away the most important set of wills are those proved 
in the prerogative Court of Canterbury (P. C. C.) : these commence 
in 1383, and continue to 1858. The P. C. C. contains the wills 
from all parts of England during the Commonwealth. 1650 to 1660." 

As is shown in Part I., we have received in the neis^hborhood 
of a hundred abstracts from Alaltbv Wills, and as before stated. 


none of them (except the East Retford family) can be made to fit 
our needs, whereas the wihs. deeds, etc., of the East Retford faniily 
do dovetail in every respect with the history of the New England' 

In Part I. we gave chronologically these wills, but for the 
benefit of the American Alaltbys it has seemed best to give the com- 
plete abstracts as ]\Ir. Fothergill sent them here. 

First, it may be well to state that the ancestry of John, Wil- 
liam and Robert of East Retford, has been traced by wills to John 
Alaltby of Kexbie Hall, Kexbie, Lincolnshire, Will proved 1557, so 
he was probably born about 1500. \Mio his father was is not known, 
possibly William Maltby of Ingham, \M11 dated 15 Aug., 1547, 
which mentions son Robert, daughters, Elizabeth and KatheriTie. 
Mr. Thomas Burton to be supervisor. Wife Isabell and son John 
to be exors. John Jackson, John Colson, \\ illiam Grave, Witnesses. 
Proved in Arch, Stow, 3 Feby., 1547-8, folio 477. 

The only reasons for believing this \\^illiam ^laltby to have 
been the father of John of Kexbie is the fact that John names a 
daughter Izabell, perhaps for his mother as his wife was IMargerie. 
However, the proved line of descent is as follows : 

I. John Maltby of Kexbie Hall, Kexbie, Lincolnshire, ^^'ite, 
]\fargerie . W^ill proved 3 Dec, 1557. 

II. Richard ]\[aultbye (son of the above), Kexbie, Lincoln- 
shire. Will proved last December, 1602. 

III. John AFaltbie of Springthorpe, Lincoln. \\'ifc. Margaret. 
\y\]] proved 25 June, 1610. 

IV. John Maltby of East Retford, Xottingham, Alderman. 
AMfc. ]\Fary. \\'ill proved April, 1648. 

V. John, oldest son. b. about 1640; W^illiam, second son, b. 
^ larch i6, 1^)44-45 ; Ro1)ert. youngest son. b. Dec. 2^^, 1648. (They 
liad a brother, Richard, b. 15 Aug., 1642; d. 7 Aug. 1647-8; also 
a sister Jane and a sister Elizabeth.) 

The wills which we now give prove this pedigree to be correct:

The foregoing records show our claim to four generations of 
^laltby ancestors in England and brings us to the New World and 
the founding of new ties and homes. How the Maltbys were re- 
garded by their neighbors and posterity may be best shown by quot- 
ing from various sources, viz.: 

* As the term 'oxgang" is old English, we insert Webster's defini- 
tion of this word. "Oxgrang (from ox and gang) old English laws. As 
much land as an ox can plo-w in a season; said to be 15 acres, or as others 
allege, 20 acres." 

t John ^Maltby's wife. Margaret, was very evidently Margaret Bishop, 
a .<:ister of Richard and Robert Bishop. .John Maltbv was buried at Spring- 
thorpe. 27 :May. 1610. 


The "Dwight Strong Genealogy," p. 354. states: "John ]\Ialtby, 
Sr., came with his brother, WiUiam, both of the rank of 'gentleman,' 
from Y^orkshire, England, to Xew Haven, about 1670. 

The Xew Haven Hist. Soc. Papers, \'ol. HI., p. 265 in '*Bald- 
win's Brantford Annals," gives: "Among the men who came to 
Branford soon after the X'ewark exodus" (about 1666) "were 
Eleazer Stent. William Rosewell. William Maltbie and Samuel Pond. 
They became especially prominent," and on p. 270: "The Wilfords, 
Mautlbie, Barkers and Johnsons, that are leading names in Brant- 
ford at this time, were of the merchant class and apparently wealthy. 
They became large land holders. 

"The society at liranford at this time must have been most 
select, comprising the governor and others named," etc. Also on 
page 300: "Large and most substantial houses were erected b\' the 
new settlers, some of whom were possessed of considerable prop- 
erty. This was especially true of the Bartholomews, Maltbies. Wil- 
fords, Greys, Stents, Goulds, Bakers," (query, Barkers?) "Barnes 
and Pdackstones. . . . The Hoadley, Maltbie, Rose, Foote and 
Harrison families present so many names that were prominentlx 
identified with the church, town and business during this period, 
time fails me to speak individually of them." 

Rev. Jonathon (4) ^Faltby, b. in 1759. stated that William and 
John Maltby came from London, England. 

"The History and Antiquities of Xew England, X'ew Y'ork, Xew 
Jersey and Pennsylvania." by John Warner Barker, makes the fol- 
lowing statement : "The X'ew Haven Adventurers were the most 
opulent company which came to X^ew England." 

It will be observed that W^illiam ^laltby is generally alluded 
to with a title of respect, such as "Mr." "Judge," ''Esquire," etc. 

A word as to the importance of these titles of respect and of 
their value in the early days will help us to appreciate just how 
much they meant in colonial days. We quote from a volume of 
X^ew Haven records under "Preliminary Remarks," : "Mr. and 
^^Irs. anciently indicated rank, and had no reference to condition. 
Mrs. was often applied to unmarried as to married females. Among 
the first settlers of X'ew Haven, or anv other town, scarcely half 
a dozen men were honored with the prefix ^Iv. The common prefix 
was Goodman and Goodwoman. contracted into Good'n and Good'v. 
Junior had no reference to father and son but meant simply younger. 
^Marriages were anciently confirmed by magistrates and clerg}-men 
seldom performed the ceremony before the year 1700." Another 
reference to this same subject is from the "Tuttle Family Gene- 
alogy" : "The title Hon. was entirely tmknown in our records until 


1685, and subsequently for many years was applied only to the gov- 
ernor, and seldom to him. The next title was that of Esqre., and 

XoTE. — In 1703-4, a special court at Xew Haven gave a license to "ye 
worshipfull yir. William Maltbie of Branford." 

meant the same as in England, temp. Elizabeth and James L ]\Ir. 
Thomas AVells was magistrate for 17 years, deputy governor one 
year and was chosen governor the second time before he was dis- 
tinguished with Esq. The next title was Gentleman, but seems to 
have been soon discarded in Connecticut. The prefix ]\ [aster (Mr.) 

XoTE. — Jonathon (2) Maltby's will calls himself "gentleman."' 

belonged to all gentlemen, including those designated by the higher 
modes of rank. Master corresponds very nearly to the English 
word gentleman. In Connecticut it embraced clergymen and plant- 
ers of good family and estate who were members of the General 
Court, those bred at a university and those 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 mi2:ht be returned 
year after year, were honored with the title. To be called ^Mr. or 
to have one's name recorded by the secretary with that prefix 200 
years ago was a more certain index of the rank of the individual 
as respects birth, education and good moral character than anyone 
of the high sounding titles with which men of no merit whatever, 
in our day of swift locomotion are content to cajole others in order 
that they mav 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 sta- 
tions who still did not possess the requisite qualities of Master. It 
was seldom that young men of whatever rank were called Master. 
Sir was sometimes applied to young gentlemen undergraduates at 
a college. ]\Irs. was applied to the wives of Masters and also to 
unmarried females of the higher class." 

''Military titles were considered of a very his^h order. Previous 
to 1654. the highest military officer in the colony was captain." — 
Hollister's Hist, of Conn. 

Palfrey, in "Hist, of Xew England'' savs : "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 tlieir wives) had Mr. or Mrs. prefixed to 


their names. . . . Wm. Bradford, though at the head of the 
Bridgewater, ]\Iass.. proprietor's, a son of the governor, and him- 
self often Heutenant-governor. was not entitled to ]Mr." 

In "Conn. Hist. Society Pub." \'ol. III., p. 306. there is a sketch 
of Brandford ; in it is the following item: "The principal gentlemen 
of this town were Air. Topping, Esq., John Wilford, Win. Alaltbie, 
Esq., Edward Barker." 

Rocky's "Hist, of Xew Haven Colony" gives: "Another settler 
of prominence was Wm. ]\Ialtb\', who for a long time was one of 
the justices of the quorum and usually called Judge Maltby. Samuel 
(2) Maltby graduated from Y'ale and also became prominent in 
ailairs. Most of this family removed." 

In Dexter's "Biog. and Annals of Yale College" William Maltby 
is referred to as "Captain William Maltby." He may have had this 
rank, I do not know. Savage in his Gen. Diet, mentions him as 
'"Cornet of X^ew Haven troop," which is correct as will be shown 
in later records, and which follow chronologically arranged as far 
as was possible. 

Ral])h D. Smith in a letter dated "Guilford, Conn.. T(S66," says 
of William and John Maltb\- : "They belonged to the rank of gentle- 
man, and were both engaged in commercial pursuits. John confined 
liis business principally to the sea, William engaged both on the 
sea and the land." » 

Henry Rogers of Xew Haven, aged 84. wrote the compiler: 
'A\'illiam Alaltby was a justice of the quorum (or judfje of the 
county court) at the time of his death, 17 10, and had been for some 
twelve years before. He was a man of much influence in his dav 
in Branford. . . . He was without question or doubt one of the 
men that were looked upon as the men that were qualified to be 
the leaders of the people in the government of the colony . . 
I noticed his stone at the Branford Cemeterv — it looks well." 


1644-45. Born. As we know from his tombstone at Branford. 

1667. It is claimed that the first signature of William ]\Ialtby is to 
be seen on the Church Covenant at Branford in 1667. (Branford 
Town records, \'ol. I., p. 319, Ecclesiastical Records, \c\. I., p. 
17, State Library, Hartford.) This, I think, is a mistake. I 
have seen the Branford records and they are a bit confusing. 
William Alaltbv's sis^nature seemed to me to be after the reor- 


ganization of the church and not before. Also from the deed 
of John ]\Iahby, 1672. in which he calls William ^lahbie "now- 
residing in Xew Haven," it would appear that he was but lately 
come to Xew England.*

the time when such was effected was about the year 1750, all dates from 
Jan. 1, to March 25. were doubly designated. Consequent!}' the above date

* A letter written by Ralph D. Smith., dated "1S66" says apropo.s of 
this record: "Mr. "Wm. Maltby's name anpears amons^ the last of the siprners 
of the second Branford Church Covenant of IGfiT. made after the departure 
of Rev. Mr. Abraham Pierson and his company from Branford for Newark, 
N. J., and apparently Mr. Maltby signed it several years after it wa.s 
originally drawn up. on his coming to Branford. ^vhich was certainly late 
in 1672 or early in 1673. . . . He was evidently a man of business and 
ability much above the ordinary and he assumed a prominent position 
among- the people of Branford." 


XoTE. — It would seem from this record that WilHam Maltby's land must 
have been in the vicinity of the old burying ground, judging from the boun- 
daries given in George Page's deed.

Robert Maltbye. Thomas Blachley. 

xAt a town meeting in the month of April. 1673, Susanna, the 
wife of Thomas Pdachley, did freely give her consent to the above 
written act and deed of sale. 

Recorded l)y me Eleazer Stent, Recorder. 

1673. Oct. 20. A Branford record mentions 'AVm. Maltbie's 
pasture" in locating boundary lines. (Branford Rec, \'ol. I., 
p. 255). On page 313 of \'ol. I.. 'AVm. Maltby" is admitted 
a planter, to possess the house and land which was Thomas 
Blachlyses's. (See deed witnessed by Robert Maltbye, i^V3)- 
On page 365 "William ^laltby's mark for his cattell is a crop 
upon the top of both ears, and a slit in both the crops." 

1673. Dec. 5. William Maltby "exchanges a gray horse with 
Samuel Ward," (Branford Rec. Vol. I., p. 376). 


1673. Jan. 5. "W'm. ^laltbye branded a brown bay mare colt 
with a T on the neer shoulder" (Branford Rec, \'ol. I., p. 3O5 ). 

1673-4. Jan. 6. "\Vm. ^laltby sold to Edward Barker the above 
horse" (Branford Rec, \'ol. I., p. 376). 

1674-5. Feb. 2. "William ]\Ialtbye branded a brown bay mare, 
coming two year old. with M. on the neere buttock, being for- 
merly branded with a T. on the neer shoulder. The same dav 
he branded a dust\" black mare colt with T on neere buttock, 
and M. on ye neer shoulder; naturally marked with a brood 
star on forehead, above ye signe." (Bran. Rec. \'ol. I., p. 368). 

XoTE. — Possibly the "T" stood for Tottokel, the Indian name for Bran- 
ford, the "M" was of course for Maltby. 

1674. Branf. Rec. p. 144-147: "W'm. Malt])ye was chosen cnn- 

1674-5. March 12. ".Mr. W'm. Maltl^y and Eleazer Stent are 
chosen collectors." L'nder the same date mention is made of 
the location of his new fence, also some portion of his lands. 
in fixing boundaries (Branf. Rec, A'<»1. T.. p. 177). 

1676. April 30. Elizabeth, dau. of Mr. W'm. Malt1)y. b. at 

1676. Dec. 8. W'm. Maltbye's land is mentioned in boimdary

1676. Dec. 14. "He is twice appointed to la}' out land (Branf. 
Rec. A'ol. I., p. 109). 

1676-77. Jan. 17. List of the children: "yiv. W'illiani Maltbye. 5 
children." This record beins^ old style, includes John. Jane, 
Mary, William and Elizabeth, the last named being b. April 
30. 1676 (Branf. Rec, p. 118). 

1676. A list of estates in 1676 gives Mr. Maltbye £103. oos. ood. 
There were thirty planters in the list. Mrs. Cushman writes 
that none of the estates in the list reached the sum of £200. 

iSyS-y. ]\Iarch 19. William Maltby's name appears as witness 

of a sale (Branf. Rec. Vol. I., p. 412). 
1677-8. Feb. 24. William Maltby was chosen town collector 

(Branf. Rec, A'ol. T., p. 153). 

1677. Dec. 21. He was "appointed to lay out land" (Branf. Rec, 
A'ol. I., p. 127). 

1678. Jime 4. "At a towne meetins:, June 4. 1678, the towne have 
appointed Wm. Hoadley and Wm. ^^faltby to ao^ree with Mr. 
Jno. Arnold to keep a scholl in ye towne. and they are to give 
what mav be collected in ve towne. from those that have chil- 


dren, for the satisfaction of ye schoolmaster" (Branf. Rec, p. 

1678. Aug. I. "The town appoint W'ni. ]\Ialtbie and two others 
to give Mr. John Harrison* a call to settle as minister in Bran- 
ford. (Branf. Rec, Vol. L, p. 131 ; also Branford Church 
Manual, p. 12). 

1678-9. 25 Feby. Colony Records, p. 114: "At a towne meeting 
the towne have granted 
to soujourn in Branford 

the towne have granted liberty to William Alaltbie of Guilford 

XoTE. — This record would indicate that William ]\Ialtby was first of 

1678. Feb. 25. He was "appointed to lay out land" (Bran. Rec. 
A'ol. L. p. 163). 

1678. ]\Iarch 8. Appointed with others "to proportion every 
man's land according to the agreement of 1676." Also as 
"collector of what shall be expended in laying out the township 
(Bran. Rec, A'ol. L, p. 142. See also Xew Eng. Hist, and

1679. Nov. TO. Samuel Martin of Wethersfield sold unto Mr. 
Wm. Maltby of Branford, a graystone horse about 16 years 
old marked with EO on ye neer shoulder (Bran. Rec, A'ol. T., 

XoTE. — Here we have a mention of Wethersfield. the liome of Hannah 
Hosmer Willard. ( The question is. was he already married to her, or did he 
marry her later?) 

* This name should, I feel sure, be Harriman and not Harrison as the 
ropy sent me read. ]My own copy of this record reads: "Vol. T.. p. 131. At 
a Towne meeting-, 1 Augrust. 1^78. The towne have unanimously aprreed to 
give Mr. John Harriman an invitation or call to come amonprst us to 
carry on ye work of ye ministry in Branford and ve towne have appointed

those three men are apointed to seat every man and woman in

1681-2. Feb. I. '"Mr. Edward Barker, ]\Ir. William ^laltbye and

p. 94V 

1681-2. March 14. Appointed "to view the general fences;" also 
"to lay out land by George Page's (Bran. Rec, \'ol. L. p. 104). 
On pacre 106, A\'illiam Maltby gives his reasons for declining 
the office of fence viewer. On p. 99, There is a deed of Daniel 
Swaine which mentions land "Bounded with William ^Maltbye 
on ye southeast" and on pas^e loi, a deed of Robert Foote's 
"with William ]\Ialtbye on the east." 

1682. ^larch 31. "Wm. ^laltby and George Page; their choice of

copied without date, but immediately follow the above record.

of the way that leads to his field." 
p. 58. "A cow pasture is laid out for Wm. Maltbie at pipe staffe

1682, George Tyler was chosen. ?^lr. Maltbye having given his 

reasons for his dissisting his work." 

XoTE. — From 1672, when \Villiam Maltby's name first appears upon the 
Colony records, until the above date, March 27. \6^2. the name of William 
Maltby appears upon the records every year. But from 16S2 till 1685, I 
find no mention of it. Would the death of his first wife account for this? 
or is it possible that he returned to England during this period? 

1685. Feb. 2"/. The will of Thomas Hosmer of Hartford, Conn., 
mentions his daughter, "Hannah ^^lalby," and further on his 
"son-in-law. Malby."

1686. Oct. II. On the nth of October, 1686, the town agreed to 
apply to the General Court at Hartford for permission to embody 
into a church estate, such as were suitable subjects. 

\\m. ]\Ialtbye was chosen one of the delegates and his name 
is among those appended to the petition. Mrs. J. P. Cushman 
(who gathered together most of these Branford records) writes: 
"We saw the original paper, and the autograph of our ancestor, 
among the Ecclesiastical Records.'' (\'ol. I., pp. 84, 85. See 
also Colonial Records, p. 216). This petition was granted. They 
had previously, April 12, 1686. given Mr. Samuel Russell, a son 
of Rev. John Russell of Hadley, Massachusetts, and a graduate 
of Harvard, an invitation to settle with them as their minister 
and he had given an answer in the affirmative on the 12th of 
September, 1687 (Branford Church Manual, p. 12. Also (tH- 
iette's Semi-Centennial, p. 10). "It was in the large south parlor 
of his dwelling that the convention of ministers met to found 
Yale College. He was one of the trustees. It was during his 
pastorate that the town divided into Old and North Branford, 
and after a time the latter set off a part of its people who formed 
a third society called Xorthford." (Gillett's Sermon, pp. 11-12).

1687. March. (Branford Records, \o\. 11., p. 36): "The town 
have given to Mr. Win. Maltby two acres of land on the west 
side of the way that leads to his field aj^ainst John Wdiitehead's 
land at Scotch Cap and have appointed Jno. Wdiitehead and Jhno. 
Hose to lay it out. . . . The town have appoyntd Mr. Maltbie, 
Ensign Harrison and Samuel Bradfield to view a parcell of 
land neer dod's swamp wh. William Hoadley desires the grain 
of and thev are to make report thereof to the town." 
W'illiam Maltbie, Commissioner and Justice of Peace, per- 
formed the following" marriafjes : (Xew Haven Records). 









* Samuel Russell was the minister and in consequence liad the first 
pew in the church. After the minister the people of the highest rank were 
seated. In connection with the church sittings we quote from "Historic 
Towns of New England," page 136, hy George Dimmick Latimer. "On one 
side" (the churcli) "sat the men. on the other the women and small chil- 
dren, each in his proper place, determined by wealth or public office." 


Note. — It was the custom in the early days for marriages to be per- 
formed by a Justice of the Peace. 

"From this time (1687?) until 16S9. I can rind no mention of the name 
of William :\Ialtby,'' writes Mrs. J. P. Cushman. '"In that year it appears 
twice, May 9 and June 13. as one of the members of the General Court at 
Hartford." (Colonial Records of Connecticut. Vol. III., p. 195.) 

Editor's Xote.— This fact suggests the thought that William Maltby was 
away from Xew England, as it hardly seems probable that a man so active 
in the public service would suddenly cease to serve his colony and as sud- 
denly resume active public work. \^ery probably he visited England at this

William Maltby's son, William, was captain of this briq-antine, 
''Friends Adventure," as we learn from a Xew Haven Record, \'ol. 
H.. p. ^2, under date "3 Dec, 1700. William Maltbie of Xew 
I laven, master of ye Brigantine ft'riends Adventure." It was shortly 
after this that William Maltby, junior, lost his life in the West 

Rev. Jonathon (4), in a j^aper written in 1848, says: "In the 
inventory of Wm. Maltby are quite a number of vessels.* Bran- 

* Rev. JoTiatlion Maltby very evidently had seen some inventory un- 
known to us. It may be that it would be among-.-^t the Custom House rec- 
ords of Xew Haven. Another descendant of the earlier generations wrote: 
"Our emigrant ancestor owned three vessels, all of them full of carsco at 
the same time in Xew Haven harbor.*' Tlie exact f|uotation is mislaid, 
but if memory is not at fault, it came from a grandchild of Samuel (2) 
MaltViy. Addenda. This statement reads: "'One of the Maltbys owned 
three ships with cargoes afloat at the same time." — Selina (6) Maltby. 
John (.t). 

*A further search of tliis record reads, after the word "tons": "have 
p:iven. granted, bargained, sold, convey, confirmed and firmly made over 
unto him tlie said Jonathon Atwater one whole eighth of the Hull or body 
of the sd Brigantine together with one eighth of ye masts, yards, boom 
bolt, spret. hatches, scuttles, grateings. boat oars, sails, anchors, ropes, 
cables, cordage, stores and all other appurtenances to the same belonging." 


ford in those days was a thriving seaport, more business was done 
in Branford said Captain Parish/ an old gentleman, than in Xew 
Haven. The merchants, he said, purchased their West India goods 
in iiranford. The farmers in Xorthford carried all there. It was 
the market for their wheat, rye, corn, flax, flaxseed, staves, hoops, 
etc. Flax and flaxseed was a great article. Capt. Josiah Fowler 
and Jonathon Fowler, Ijenjamin Maltby (3) and others raised 
abundance for the market. In my boyhood I went with my father 
( lienjamin) (3), grandson of the emigrant. W'ilHam (i) Maltbv. 
when he carried his effects and was well pleased to see the vessels."

Hournble Sr — After our condolence with yor Hunr in ye great 
breach lately made in yor family, these upon, yor Hounrs commands 
come to offer our opinion in ye case proposed, viz.: that it being 
manifestly to(j late to send for Engld for ye divertion of dangers 
from the present sessions of l^arliam't. there seems to be no occation 
tor a General Court as yett ; but it ma\- be a good service for ye 
Colony if the Governrs Hounr with advice of his Council would 
hasten letters to Sr Henery, recpiesting a speedy and full account 
of our affairs, what i)robabilities there are ye design against ye for- 
reign corporations will be reviv'd and take effect in Parliament, 
what reasons he can offer for sending an agent, whether that charg 
be att all likely to do us any service, whether he with the councel 
he retains may not be capable of serving our interest as well without 
as with an agent from home ? 

It seems to us that if we must fall because we are a corpora- 
tion, no trouble or charge we put orselves upon can save us ; if we 
must fall because criminal, or crimes will doubtless in form of law 
be laid before us before we be condemned. There may be time 
enuf to send an agent if there needs. However, if Sr Henery can 
shew sufficient business for an assent to be sent, next Mav Court 
may hasten one unto him. 

\\'e have also thought if the Hounble Governr & Council would 
araw an address to ye Queen's ^lajestie, therein plainly representing 
the true state and interest of this Colony how much our fathrs and we 
have confided in ro\al grace for the continuance of our privileges, 
expended both estate, labr and much bloud in settling, subduing 
and defending this Colony, how low and poor we yett are, having 
no forreign trade. & how disheartened our people very generally will 
be if they must loos their present Charter priveledges, whereupon 


great numbers will doubtless choos to settle in some better climate 
& safer country, & so the Queen's interest in ye Colony will be left 
more exposed to dangers and charges ; how little chargable we have 
been to ye Crown. & how careful not to wrong its interests w^e have 
been; if these and what else may be proper were putt into a mem- 
orial with a suitable address & lodged in our agents hands wdth in- 
structions under necessary conection to present ye same to her 
]\Iajestie when yr should be occation, it might perhaps prevent her 
giving such an act the royal assent, unless harmless Connecticut 
be exempted. However, this done, what can we do more but com- 
mit our cause to Him that is able to deliver us? Indeed, if we should 
understand we are neer our end. it doubtless would be very requisite 
to call a General Court, better to secure our titles to land, or towai 
patents being insufficient to settle or 8 counties & to order some 
other things of great consequence befr we die. These (with our 
humble service offered to yor Hounr) are submitted to yor correc- 
tion by yor humble servants.

The Inventory of the Estate of W'iUiam ]\Ialtby, Esq., of Bran- 
ford, will be found of much interest to all descendants. That there 
was another inventory of his ships we can not but believe, as Rev. 
Jonathon (4) ^laltby states: "in his inventory are quite a number 
of vessels." 

An Inventory of the estate of William Maltby, Esq., late of

In order that descendants may form some idea as to the impor- 
tance in the earlv davs of the above estate we cpiote from the 
X. E. H. & G. R.,'p. y^. Vol. LXIV: "At William Peyntree's death 
in Connecticut, he left a large estate inventoried, 29 X^ov., 1649, at 
£1001, 00s, ood, to his widow ^Margaret, son John and his daughter 
Alarv, wife of Richard Brvan of Milford, Conn." 


XoTE. — Mary Peyntree was the mother of Mary Bryan, wife of John 
Mahby, Esq. 

This inventory was taken some sixty years before that of Wil- 
liam Maltby. which makes some difterence in the relative value of 
the two estates, but in 17 lo. an estate of £1058 was a goodly in- 
heritance and William Maltby was one of the most substantial men 
in I J ran ford. 

After the death of William Maltby there was some litigation 
over the estate as is shown by a Xew Haven Probate Record, viz. : 

"John ^laltbie of Saybrook, one of the legatees of Mr. \\'illiam 
r\Iaultby. late of Branford, Dec'd., did offer ye evidence of Samuel 
and Miriam Pond to shew that through the Xeglect of ye Scribe In 
writing ye will of sd Dec'd, there was an omition of some Particular 
grants to ye said John Maultbie and his brother Daniell. Put inso- 
much t\ none of yet Interests were present nor cited to bee, ye 
Court do decline acting in ye affair." 

\'nl. I\'., p. 94: "The Testymonie of Samll Pond and Miriam 
Pond : These Deponents testyfie and say they being with Mr. \\"i\- 
liam Maultby of Hranford, DecVl. when he, sd Maultby made his 
last will, heard said Maultby say he gave sixty four acres of his 
kind at Sebee liil to his grandson, William Maltby and ye remainder 
of his said land at Sebee hil he gave to his son John and his son 
Daniel to be divided between them and farther saith at Guilford, 
July 23r(l, 1712. the above named Samuel Pond and Miriam Pond 
made solemn oath to }'e truth of the above written testymony before 
Abraham Fowler, Asst. John Maltby of Saybrook, who desires ye 
above testymonie afffrmed to me ye subscriber yt he had notified all 
ye persons concerned in ve above William Maltby's estate to be 
present at time and place above said, but none of them present.

A second record reads : At a Court of Probate held at Xew 
Haven, ye ist ^Monday of January, 1710-11. 

Present John Allino;-, Esqrs., Judge. 

]\Ir. William ?\Ialtby Warham ]^Iather ] Esq. 

Abraham Bradley i Just. 

^Ir. Joseph Tuttle on behalf of John Maltby, Daniel ^laltby, 
David Parker in right of his wife and Abraham Hoadley in rio^ht 
of his wife, some of the heirs of William [Maltby, Esq., late of 
Branford, deceased, decried the Court to grant letters of adminis- 
tration on ye goods and Chattels of ye said deceased. The Court 


after thor' consideration thereof do not see cause to grant an ad- 
ministration on the goods and chattels of said deceased from this 
deny all the said John ]^Ialtby. Daniel Maltby. David Parker and 
Abraham Hoadley appeals to the Court of Assistants to be held at 
Hartford in May next, John Alaltby, Daniel Alaltby, David Parker 
and Abraham Hoadley principals, and ^Matthew Gilbert and Samuel 
Cooper suretys acknowledge themselves bound jointly and severally 
in a recognizance of Forty pounds lawful money of the Colony of 
Conn, to the Court of Probates for ye county of Xew Haven, to 
prosecute their said appeale to the offset and answer all damages 
in case they make not their plea good." (p. 252, Vol. HI., New Ha- 
ven Probate records.) 

It would be interesting to know the outcome of this case, but 
as yet we have found no record of this appeal at Hartford. The 
record might throw some light on the question of who was the first 
wife of William ]\Ialtby, as possibly they were contending for prop- 
erty which they thought they were entitled to through their mother. 
It will be noticed that Samuel and Jonathon, children of Abigail 
Bishop, do not appear in the above plea. It would rather seem to 
nidicate that John. Jane, Elizabeth and Daniel had the same mother. 

XoTE. — \\'illiam. the other brother, died nine years before his father, 
and William. Sr.. had already given him his share and provided for his 
grandson, William. 3rd. 

This work is in no way intended for a genealogy. (A lar^T^e and 
comprehensive record of the descendants of William and John 
Maltby. emigrants, is about completed, in so much as a genealogy 
is ever completed). At the same time it has been considered advis- 
able to include in this volume a sketch of each of the children of 
William ]\Ialtby. and these biographies now follow. 

JOHX :\rALTPA^ (2) 

John ^vlaltby, oldest son of \\'illiam ]\Ialtby. Esq., was born, 
according to ]\Ir. Ralph D. Smith, in 1670. Where he was born 
and the name of his mother are not known. 

''Branford Annals." by Baldwin (X. H. Hist. Soc. Papers, 

\^ol. III., p. 269) has this paragraph, referring to him: "Alarch 9, 

1687-8. John Rosewell. Samuel Hoadley, Jon. Foote, Josiah Frisbie, 

William Barker. John ]\Iaultbie and Isaac Bartholemew were granted 

a parcel of land a mile square in the X. W. portion of the town. 


They were to divide it among themselves as they could agree. They 
were young men pushing out to make new homes. They were thus 
the founders of families that have been prominent in Xorth Bran- 
fird since." 

^Ir. Ralph D. Smith wrote concerning John ]\Ialtby : "He was 
a Cooper, but belonged to the better class in Society. . . . He 
lived in Saybrook all of his life." I do not think John ^Nlaltby went 
to Saybrook to live until sometime after 1694. when he would have 
been twentv-four vears of ag^e. as we find these records in Branford : 
1682. "Land was given by the town to Jno. ]\Ialtbye. about 1682. 

On page 43 of "Branford Annals" we find the following: 

"North Branford. In 1687. ]\Iarch 4. John ^^laltbie (also spelled 
Maultbie). He was probably a son of William ]\Iaultbie." Also: 
"]\Iarch 21, 1700. John Maultbie removes to Xew London and sells 
to his father William." 

1686. "John Maltbye makes his mark ( -|- j to an agreement that 
Jno. Rosewell have his land in one piece. March 8. 1686-7. (Bran. 
Rec, \'ol. H., p. Tfj) . Why he should have made his mark at 16 
years of age, with his father so fine a penman is a question, imless 
he were ill at the time. 

Rev. Jonathon (4) Maltby wrote of him: "of Y'ale Coll.. but did 
not graduate for want of health." As Yale College was not founded 
till 1700. this can hardly be correct, though it is possible that Rev. 
Jonathon's (4) statement alluded to his son. John (3). 

1694. "John Maltbie entered his earmark, which is a hollow 
crop, on the top of the near ear. and a crop on the ofif ear. and a 
slit in the same ear, April 17. 16)94. ( Bran. Rec, \'ol. I., p. 22T,). 
lietween this date and 1699, his father purchased a place for him 
in Saybrook, probably at the time of his marriage in 16)96. 

According to ^Nlr. Ralph Smith and to ^Ir. Francis Parker of 
Hartfoi-d, John ^laltby married Hannah Lord, daughter of Capt. 
William and Lydia Buckland (Brown) Lord of Saybrook, and 

granddaughter of Thomas and Dorothy Lord of Hartford. A 

marriage into a good family, as is well known. The date of the 
above marriage was Au^. 13, 1696. 

1699. In this year we find the following item : "I John Alaltbie 
of Saybrook, sell to my honored father, \\'m. Maltbie of Branford, 
for the sum of £S a piece of land. etc. ^larch 15. 1699. Acknowl- 
edge before 

^^'m. ^laltbie. Justice Peace. 

(Bran. Rec. A'ol. XL, p. 129; also Xew Haven Countv Court Rec, 
Vol. II., p. 3.) 


The Branford Records, A'ol. II., p. 44, contains this item: "John 
]\Iakbie, among others receives 8 acres in I'ranford and promises to 
improve it. 

1 71 3, Sept. 30. "Henry Cook of Branford deeds to John ]\Ialt- 
bie of Saybrook" for good causes and considerations "land in Bran- 
ford (Bran. Rec. \^ol. IW, p. 246). 

The win of John ^lakby is dated ]\Iarch ii, 1727, recorded 
and proved Sept. 12. 1727. It mentions wife Hannah, children John, 
Xathaniel, Hannah, Mary, Jane and Dorothy. He gave each of

wife Hannah executrix. John Maltby, according to ^Mr. Ralph 
Smith, "died August — 1727. at the age of 57." His will is wit- 
nessed by "Samuel Williard."*

Additional notes of the children of John (2) Maltby. 

John (3) ]\Ialtby m. Mehitable Clarke. They had children: 
Esther, William, supposed to have died unmarried : Mehitable and 

* XOTE — A son of John Maltby's stepmother, l)y her husband, 
Josiah Williard. Samuel WiUard resided at Saybrook; as, viz., the following- 
record: "Samuel Willard of Saybrook quit claims to Stephen Willard of 
T\"ethersfield, his title to the land of his honored father, Josiah Willard. 30 
Dec. 1699." 

* William evidently died young as he is not mentioned in his fatlier's 

t The old Maltby Chest, of which we show a photograph, belonged at 
one time to Hannah Maltby, and possibly to her fatlier. John. Indeed, there 
is a strong possibility that he built it himself. 

t This date of birth may be incorrect as the Guilford records read: 
"Died. Jane Maltbie, from Saybrook, 30, June 12, 1737." This would make 
her birtli year 1707. 



Abbv. From these records it will be seen that the male line of 
John {2) died out in this generation. 

Nathaniel (3j Maltby m. Deborah Jones, descended from 
Deputy Governor William Jones. They had one child, Elizabeth. 

William ( 3 ) Maltby is presumed to have died youno-. 

Hannah (3) Maltby m. Abraham Hodkin and had children: 
Abraham, Hannah. John, Jane, Samuel and Lydia.

L ^.1—1726 

Quaint heirloom, as alone this dav vou stand 
A relic of the past, what could you tell 
Of our ancestors and the home and land 
Erom whence they came, and of that one as 
Who formed you for his own utility. 
With somewhat even of skill and artistry, 



In red and black and gold traced clearly see 
The letters and the date, which seem to give 
An index of the owner's family, 
As well as time in which the man did live, — 
John ^laltby, grandson of the one we own 
As sire of ]\[altbys in our lineage known. 

This we may gather, but no further clue. 
From which to unroll the years between, 
That early date and this, is given by you ; 
Nor may we ever know all you have seen, 
Made as you were full half a century 
Before this country's Independency. 

You know the natives who tried souls of men ; 
Witnessed privations, loss, disease and death. 
And midst those scenes saw the swift rise and gain 
Of a new nation — even to Freedom's breath. — 
A nation known this day, her treasure sought 
By all lands, and we cry, "What has God wrought !" 

Yet pride and honor, wealth and fame must pass. 
Not even a nation can unchanged remain, 

The things we value in an instant flash 
Are gone from us. we must new treasure ijain : — 
But still, with you old chest, to our loved Tree — 
The ]\Ialtby Genealogy — clinc: we. 

— Seraph ^Maltbie Dean. 
Cainhvidge, Massachusetts. 

XoTE. — Tlie compiler has a copy of a letter written from Falls Village, 
Connecticut. December 24th. 1867. by Dr. Charles Benjamin Maltbie. father 
of Mrs. Dean, in which he says: "I have now in my possession a sea-chest, 
marked I. M. 1726 on the front of it. the old English standing for J as well. 
This chest was willed to me in a formal manner by one Abram Hodgkin, 
a descendant of the elder brother in whose possession it had come into by 
the way of his mother. These facts are mostly derived from him. he 
says that the elder John had one son. John, and several daughters, that this 
son, John, had five daughters and no son. etc." 

Abraham (4) Hods^kin was born April 9. 1731, and married 
!\[arch 20. 1755, Sarah Stone. He died "about 1852 at an advanced 
ao-e" according to Dr. C. B. Maltbie. He was the oldest child of 
Hannah (3) ]\Ialtbie, born Sept. 18, 1704, in Saybrook and who mar- 


ried, Jan. 17, 1730, Abraham Hodkin, in Guilford, Connecticut. 
Hannah (3) was the daughter of John {2) and Hannah (Lord) 

^laltbie, and the granddaughter of \Mlliam ( i) and Mary ? 


According to ^Ir. Ralph D. Smith, of Guilford. John (2) ^Nlaltby 
died in August, 1727, so we take it for granted that the sea chest 
was not his, but belonged to his son, John (3;, who married Xov. 
12, 1724, Mehitable Clarke. 

The chest evidently reverted to his sister Hannah. 

Of course there is a possibility that the chest belonged to John 
(2), and when he died in 1726 it went to his oldest daughter, and 
she may have had the "I. .M. 1 7-^^>" put on. This perhaps is the 
most natural explanation. Indeed, "What could you tell of our

Jane Maltby's birth date is not known, nor where she was born. 
She may have been a twin of John, or a year his junior. She joined 
the Branford Church in March, 1689, and we judge was probably 
borne about 1671. 

Her marriage is recorded at Xew Haven, Conn., p. 131, as f cal- 
lows : "David Parkor and Jane ^lalby were maryod the 4 March, 

A JJranford Deed, \'ol. HI., p. 280, states that: "David Parker 
of Sav Brook in the Count}' of X'ew London and Colony of Connecti- 
cut, with the consent of Jane, my wife, to John Russell of Branford, 
our whole right, title and interest in the undivided lands in the 
Township of Branford, being one-seventh part of ye said land which 
are our ricjht in the estate of our Honrd Father, ]\Ir. William ]\Ialt- 
bie, late of Branford, dec'd. 

Daniel }^Ialtbie. 17 Jan.. 1710-11. 

Samuel ^Maltbie. 

David Parker and Jane ]\Ialtby very evidently had no children. 

Air. Francis Parker of Hartford, Conn., very kindly furnished 
the following records : "David Parker, son of \\'illiam and ^Margery 

Parker, was born in Saybrook. the latter end of February, 

1657-8." In May 1682 the General Assembly exempted him from 


tlie payment of poll taxes because he was "disabled from attending 
to his business by a wound in the head." Xo other reference to 
this injury is found. Presumably it was permanent in its character 
and debarred him from severe physical exertion. The town of Say- 
brook granted him five acres of land in 1679, perhaps for services 
in the Indian wars, but the reason of the grant is not stated. He 
held the office of lister in 1695 ^^^^^ 1706, and was constable in 1698. 
He also held many minor town offices. 

David and Jane (Maltbie) Parker had no children and David 
Parker, ''yeoman." as he describes himself, died in Jan., 1723, having 
survived his wife. His will, dated Jan. 11, 1723, was acknowledged 
before a magistrate Jan. 15, 1723, and probated in Guilford, Jan. 
29, 1723. He gave legacies to his brothers, William and Joseph 
Parker ; to nephews, Joseph and Jonathon Parker ; to his grand- 
nephews, Abner, John and Xathaniel Parker, but bequeathed the 
bulk of his estate to his grand-niece, Deborah Parker, who subse- 
quently married Isaac Jones. He gave a piece of land, a part of his 
homestead, to Saybrook Church, on condition that a meeting house 
be built upon it, also another piece of land for the support of "our 
orthodox dissenting ministery in Saybrook." The church declined 
to build a meeting house on the first lot, and it reverted to Deborah 
Parker. His estate inventoried £487 — 5 — 4. 

Some of the items in his inventory were : 

one gold ring. i8s. 
one silver spoon, los. 
three silver buckles. 3s. 
t\\ < • pairs of silver clasps. 5s. 
pewter table ware. £3, 4s, 4d. 

also "two volums of sermons, three bibles, one palsm book, two old 
books and two paper books, and several articles of brass and tin 

XoTE. — \Villiam Parker was one of the original proprietors of Hart- 
ford. 1636. It is not known from what English town he came. He removed 
to Saybrook in 1645. According to Saybrook Records. Vol. I., p. 24. he 
married "Margery Allen, daughter of William Allen of London. Eng.. and 
afterwards married Elizabeth Pratt, widow of Lieut. Wm. Pratt and daughter 
of John Clarke. 1st. He was a doctor. He died 21 Dec. 1686. He was the 
son of John Parker of Dantry. Northamptonshire, Eng , and his mother 
was a daughter of William Cross." 



William Maltby, Jr., was born Jan. 9. 1673-4, at Xew Haven, 
Conn., and was a child of a first wife. He resided in Xew Haven 
previons to 1700, and from the following- record we learn that he 
resided on the corner of Water and Union streets, the then fashion- 
able part of town, and here, doubtless, he watched the good Brigan- 
tine "Friends Adventure" of which he was captain, and his father 
owner, riding at anchor in the harbor. The Trowbridge Genealogy, 
p. 52, tells us that "Hezekiah Sabin came to Xew Haven about 1743. 
He bought of the heirs of William Maltbie, the house on the corner 
of Water and Union streets, near the Creek." 

William Maltbw Jun.. married Elizabeth Morris, daughter of 
John Morris. He evidently was of Branford in 1690, for in that 
vear he joined the church there. I think he removed to Xew Haven 
about the time of his marriage, as we find this record: (X'ew Haven 
Town RccrTds, \'<)I. \l., pp. 11-12) "John Morris, shipwright, of 
New Haven, for £110 sells his house and his land to his son-in-law, 
William Maltbie of Xew Haven. Mariner, whose wife is Elizabeth 
Morris Maltby, Jan. i, 1698-99." 

Note. — 'The wife of John Morris was Hannah Bishop, oldest child of 
Deputy Governor James Bishop. She was the mother of Elizabeth Morris 
who married William Maltby. Jr. Abig^ail Bishop, third wife of William 
^[altby. Sr.. was a sister of Hannah (Bishop) Morris, and therefore own 
aunt to Elizabeth Morris Maltbv and step-mother to her husband. William 
Maltby. Jr. ' 

''William Maltby was a sea captain and died in the \\'est Indies, 
1701, aged only 2/," writes Mrs. Cushman. while Mr. Ralph D. 
Smith says, "he was lost at sea, in March, 1701"; and another rec- 
ord reads : "he died of yellow fever in the \\'est Indies." From the 
few records which follow we can see that he left X'ew Haven in 
December, 1700, as "Master of the Friend's Adventure," and never 
returned to his wife and infant son. 

1700. Dec. 3. "\\'m. Maltbie, ^Master of ye Brigantine fifriend's 
Adventure, made complaint against Daniell Thomas of said X'ew 
Haven, for absenting himself from the vessel without leave." (X^ew 
Haven Records of County Court, \'ol. H., p. 52.) And again in 
V^ol. II., p. 53: "Wm. Maltbie of X^ew Haven, ^Master of ye Brio^an- 
tine Friend's Adventure, was fined £5 for receiving on board a quan- 
tity of hogs head heading and other timber contrary to law." 

Capt. \\'illiam ^^laltby died without a will.

This inventory will bear a little study. The "Corrils, Baskets 
and Trays he evidently had brought home from his West India 
voyages, also the Rum and Molases which he, of course, sold in 
New En.c:land, purchased commodities for the Island trade and 
returned with "full cars^oes." 

"Debts due ye estate in Barbadoes." This is important and 
certainly looks as though the Maltbys had property there. The 
molases, sugar, rum, etc., may have been made from their own 

Mr. John Morris, his father-in-law, had evidently transported 
goods for him and hence he owed him for freight. 

\Miy Elizabeth Morris should have signed *M. Maltbie, widow," 
as executrix, is puzzling. There is no question as to who the widow 
of \\'illiam, Jr., was — she was Elizabeth Morris and this is proved 
by all records.

Daniel ]\Ialtby was born May 19, 1679, according to the Bran- 
ford Records. He united with the church at Branford in 1700. 
Esther ]^Ioss, who was to become his wife, joined the church at the 
same time. She was a daughter of John and Mary (Lothrop) Moss 
and granddaughter of John Moss of New Haven, 1639. On her 
mother's side she was descended as follows : 


1. John Lowthrope of Lowthrope, was living earl\- in the i6th 
century, in Cherry Burton, a parish about four miles from Low- 
throp. where he had an extensive estate. In 1548 he appeared 
on Y'ork subsidy roll. 

2. Robert Lowthrop. son of above, married Ellen . 

He died in 1558. 

3. Thomas Lothrop, son of above, was first of Cherry Bur- 
ton, later of Elton, Yorks. His wife was Mary , who died 

ai Elton in 1688. 

4. Rev. John Lothrop, 12th child of above, was born at Elton, 
East Riding, Y'orks., Dec. 20. 1584: was bred at Oxford: graduated 
at Queen's College, 1605. He married Hannah Howse of East- 
well, Kent Co. The marriage license was issued in Canterbury, 
Kent Co., Oct. 10, 1610. She died in 1633. 

5. Samuel Lothrop, 6th child of above, Xew London. Conn., 
married Elizabeth Scudder, Xov. 28, 1644. 

6. Mary Lothrop, daughter of above, married John Moss. 

7. Esther ]\Ioss, daughter of above, born Jan. 5. 1678, mar- 
ried Daniel Maltby. 

Daniel Maltby married Esther Moss f^Iorse) October 2"/, 1702 
(Branford Records. A'ol. Index of Births, etc., 1694). 

1703. June 14. "Daniel Maltbie entered his ear mark, which 
IS a crop on the top of both ears, and a hollow crop on the near ear" 
(Branf. Rec, A'ol. I., p. 224). 

1705. April 12. "At a meeting- of the Proprietors in Bran- 
ford commencing ^larch 25, and closing April 12, 1705, Daniel 


]\Ialtbie desired them to give him about 2 acres of sedgy land, 
which was granted" (Branf. Rec, \'ol. II., p. 249). 

1 710. Daniel Maltby seems to have been "set up in life" by his 
father, for in William Maltby's will he gives "to my son Daniel, all 
that house and land where he now lives." 

17 10. October. "Daniel ]\Ialtby was appointed guardian to 
Jonathon Alaltbie, minor, son of A\'m. Maltbie of Branford. de- 
ceased"' (Xew Haven Probate Rec, A'ol. III., p. 235). This half- 
brother, Jonathon, was then but twelve years of age and evidently 
remained the ward of Daniel only a short while, for on page 66 of 
the Xew Haven records, we find: "Jonathon ]\Iaultbie, ^Nlinor, child 
of Mr. \Mlliam Maultbie, Late of Branford did appear and made 
choice of ^Ir. Edward Barker of Branford for to be his guardian." 

171 1. October 15. ''In staking out lots on ]\Iulliner's Xeck

land they believed their father, William, intended Daniel to have, 
although not specified in his will. This was a very fine thing to 
do, and also, as a descendant of Daniel, it leads one to believe that 
Daniel's character was gentle and lovable — for we all know that 
no one is anxious to bestow gifts upon ill-tempered and unamiable 

1722. \'ol. IV., p. 445. Deed "Jonathon Alaltbie of Stamford,

ford, 10 acres of land, being Jonathon's share of the home lot, given 
him by his father, William, Dec. 7, 1722. 

The tombstone of Daniel Maltby lies quite near those of his 
father and stepmother. "Daniel Maltbie departed this life, Dec. ye 
26, A. I). 1 73 1, in the morning." (Branford Records, \'ol., 1694.) 

His plain and tasteful tombstone reads : 

Mr. Daxiicl Maltdik 
Died Dec. 2^, 1731 
In 53d year." 
At the end of Cliristmas daw we judge from the above. 

His will is probated at Guilford and was copied, with the in- 
ventory of his estate, by Miss Scofield. 

His widow, Esther (Moss) Maltby. married Deacon Samuel 
Todd, June 14, 1739 i Connecticut Marriages Branford). Also "Tut- 
tle Family Genealog\', page 7,2^. This states: "June 20th." The Xew 
Haven Records read: "Mrs. Esther Maltb\' of Branford and Mr. 
Samuel Todd. Jun. (mar) June 10, 1739. 

The will of Daniel Maltbie was found on the Guilford Pro- 
bate Records, \'ol. II., p. 436. He calls himself "Yeoman" and 
makes his will 22 Dec, 1731. His wife, Esther, and son, Joseph, 
were named as Executors. 

The will provides liberally for wife Esther, sons Joseph, Daniel 
and Benjamin, and to each of his daughters, Esther, Abigail and 

From Daniel's will it would seem that ^lary. \\'illiam and John 
were all dead when his will was made. Also that Daniel, third 
child, died as we find the seventh child also named Daniel. 

The children of Daniel and Esther ^loss Alaltby were :

This inventory shows one much, I beheve, of this manv times 
"great" grandfather. One sees all his livestock ; can hear him talk 
about that "old yallowish cow." and see the great number of farm 
tools (for that he owned a great number is clearly shown by his 
inventory) stacked about in the barns and sheds; the wheels which 
spun, the churns which made the butter, and tubs that held the 
vinegar — "a few old books" — treasured gifts most probably from 
his father, and sure sign of birth and breeding. Were they not 
eagerly pored over, read and re-read, perhaps read aloud by the 
then oldest son, Joseph,'^ in the long evenings, preparatory to his 
leaving the farm to be educated at Yale (then King's College) so 
he might be fitted to occu])y his proper place in life. 

There had been no college nearer than Harvard when Daniel 
was young to which he could go and when the college at Xew 
Haven was started it was too late to be of use to him, he was 
married and settled down to the life of a farmer, hence in his will. 
though equally entitled to the "Gentleman" or "Esqre" of his 
fathers, he says, "I Daniel Maltbie, Yeoman." 

Grandly simple, unassuming words they seem to his descendant 
who writes this sketch. His father, in making his will, says, "I 
William Maltby. Esqre." One brother is called "Captain" and 
another "Gentleman" and this is as it should be. but we who follow 
after him are fond of this simple-hearted country gentleman living 
upon his broad acres in this new country, the wholesome, honorable 
life of an upright land-owner. 

Such a one earns what he has by persistence and care ; his gain 
is not taking the life-giving food from another : the money thus 
gained is not blood-money or got by graft, and so we who descend 
from this long departed ancestor give thanks for any strain of 
hereditv which teaches us the patience of toil, the homiliness of the 
big fireside and the joys of life in the open. 

* So manv subscribers to this book descend from Captain Joseph Maltby 
that a word 'or two concerning him is inserted. Until very recently the 
name of his wife was unknown, but this has now been discovered by Miss 
Ethel Lord Scofield of East Haven. Conn. She was Elizabeth Pratt. Her 
ancestrv has been verv kindlv conrtibuted by Mr. Douglas B. Thompson 
of Washington. D. C.'as follows: "Elizabeth Pratt was a daughter of 

Jonathon and Elizabeth Pratt of Hartford. Conn., and granddaughter 

of John and Hepsiah Pratt, and great granddaughter of John and 

Elizabeth Pratt, who died at Hartford. July 15. 1655." The "Descend- 
ants of John Pratt." published in 1844. states that "Elizabeth Pratt married 
William Moulbe and nothing further has been ascertained of her." This is 
evidently an error for we find Xoah (4) Maltby. son of Capt. Joseph (3) 
"chooses his uncle Moses Pratt of Hartford. Guardian." In old manuscripts 
it is claimed that Joseph (3) Maltbv entered Tale College, but did not 
graduate on account of ill health. liev. Jonathan (4) Maltby states: "He 
was a ship Master and followed the seas." 


This short article is written to the honored memory of her 
great, great, great, great-grandfather, Daniel ]^Ialtby by the com- 
piler of this book.

A pen picture of Samuel Maltby was written for the first Re- 
union of the Maltby family, at Pranford, by Mrs. J. P. Cushman, a 
great, great, great, great-granddaughter, and we consider it the fit- 
ting and best of introductions to this long deceased ancestor. 

Mrs. Cushmax's Address ox Samuel ]\L\ltby (2) 

It seems hardly appropriate for a descendant of Samuel (2) to 
occupy a moment of our precious Reunion afternoon, we are so 
hopelessly in the minority of members. Have you counted the 
printed list in our fourth annual report? Seven only from Samuel, 
eight from Jonathon, and ninety-five from Daniel I One is tempted 
to ask, "Who would not be a Daniel *"" rather than stand so con- 
spicuously alone. 


However, as one purpose of our Association is to collect and 
preserve memorials of those who have passed into the land of silence, 
let me give a few gleanings made from records and traditions con- 
cerning Samuel (2), seventh child of \\'illiam, our emigrant an- 
cestor, by whose grave we are to stand this afternoon. 

For one, I am deeply grateful that English Research work, the 
past year, has furnished four generations of ^laltbys to fill in the 
background for any sketch of our American forbears. We can now 
see John {1 ) and ^^largerie of five himdred years ago with their 
four children: Richard (2) and his three: John (3) and Margaret 
with seven ; John ( 4 ) and r*^Iary with five — three of whom came to 
this Xew World about 1670, viz: John. William and Robert. 

It is as the descendants of William that we are gathered at 
iJranford to commemorate the two himdredth anniversary of his 
aeath. From our Genealogist we know he was a man of wealth 
and high position, a "gentleman" of his time, thrice married and 
the father of eight children. Xo one has learned the name of his 
first wife, the mother of two sons and two daughters. The second 
wife, Hannah Hosmer was imdoubtedly the mother of Elizabeth 
and the Daniel whose descendants make so good a showing on our 
roll of members. A third wife, Abigail Bishop, was the mother of 
Samuel and Jonathon. It is this Samuel, of the second generation 
in America, who is the subject of our thought for a few moments. 

His mother, Abigail Bishop, was the daughter of Dept. Gov. 
James Bishop of Xew Haven, and was born at that place Oct. 30, 
1659. I have found no date of her niarriage. but her first son, 
Samuel (2), was born Aug. 7, 1693, in Branford. It must have 
been a home of comparative luxury, for the inventory of his father's 
estate mentions many chairs, looking glasses, forks, spoons, table- 
cloths and napkins and two negro slaves. It is pleasant to have 
seen the record of his birth in his father's handwriting. ( Branford 
records, A'ol. II.) 

The state records show the father was a member of the General 
Court at Hartford in October of that year. The baby Samuel was 
baptized before he was a month old as I read in the Branford Church 
records in manuscript. 

These precious church records, Mar. 7, 1687-8. I was permitted 
to see many years ago at the home of Rev. ^Iv. Gillet, the Pastor, 
just a week before his sudden death. They were always kept, care- 
fully wrapped, on a little table near his bed. that in case of fire they 
might at once be taken up and carried to a place of safety. The 
church had begtui to appreciate their value and voted that, "no one 


remove them from ilieir present custody except by special permis- 
sion, granted at a formal business meeting." Is it known where 
they are now? Of course they should have been transcribed long 

\Mio made up the faniily circle to which little Samuel was 
added more than two centuries ago? His half sister Jane had mar- 
ried David Parker three years before. John had not vet married 
and moved to Saybrook. ]\lary probably died. William loved the 
sea, married and moved to Xew Haven, became Captain of "ve good 
Brigantine. the 'Friend's Adventure.' '" and was lost at sea' when 
only twenty-seven years old. Elizabeth was seventeen, and Daniel 

When Samuel was less than 3 years old, a little brother, Jona- 
than, made his advent in the Maltby household. The boyhood of 
these two own brothers we may picture for ourselves without a line 
of history. I found no record of Samuel's uniting with the Bran- 
ford church, and no hint of his preparatory studies. He must have 
had advantages, however, for he graduated froni Yale in 171 2, be- 
fore he was nineteen, in a class of two, the other beinq" young 
Kussel. son of tlie Branford pastor. Rev. Samuel Russell, in whose 
linuse Yale College was founded. During his college course Samuel 
was bereaved b\ the death of his father, Sept. i. 1710, and being a 
minor became the ward of his uncle, Samuel Bishop. Though only 
seventeen years old he was named with his mother as executor of 
his father's will, with this same uncle Samuel Bishop (for whom he 
may have been named ) as advisor and assistant. But the dear 
mother followed her husband in less than two months, Oct. 24, 1710, 
ar'd was buried by his side. 

By his father's will, Jonathon, the youngest son, received the 
''mansion house" in Branford and Samuel had the "Orchard" vari- 
ous sections of land in and around Branford with one half of any 
individual portion. So he was probably well equipped to begin 
life in his own name. In the list of "Freemen of Branford from 
1715 his name accurs as the fifty-first. 

December 18, 171 5, he married Elizabeth Barker, daughter of 
William and Elizabeth Barker, who was born in P)ranford. Decem- 
Ijer, 1 69 1, and so was a year and a half older than her husband. 
The ceremony was performed by Xathan Harrison, justice of the 
peace, as was the custom of that time. The graves of her parents. 
William and Elizabeth Barker, lie very near those of her husband's 
parents, William and Agigail Maltby. 


I found a curious record among the church manuscripts in 
Rev. Mr. Gillete's possession. It was written by the hrst pastor, 
Rev. Samuel Russel, in the church book, and then the pen was 
drawn across it twice, as if it had been put in the wrong place. 
I could not decipher every word. 

''Agreed with SI. Maltbie to keep school for the full . . . one 
vear, commencing from the first of January, 1719 ( ?), and have en- 
gaged him thirty pounds passable money . . . his labor. 

"Paid to S. ^laltbie for the quarter . . . kept school, seven 
pounds and forty shillings toward payment of the present year." 

So Samuel {2) was a school teacher four years after his mar- 

The following item from \'ol. 1\ . of JJranford Records was very 
gratifying: "Deed. Oct, 26, 1719. Samuel & Jonathon Maltbie of 
Branford, being fully persuaded it was ye mind and will of our 
Honrd. Father \\'illm. Maltbie that our brother Daniel Maltbie 
should have all his right and interest in Beaver Swamp, although 
not specified in ye last will of our Honrd. Father, have therefore 
given — •& — all our rights in ye above swamp. 8 acres — etc." 

The brother Jonathon moved to Stamford and sold out to 
Samuel some of the Branford lands. To these Samuel added "three 
several parcels of land in the Crotch of Bantam or ]\lill River, in 
Litchfield, for £220 and later three sixty acre lots and a lOO-acre 
lot in the Crotch of Bantam Swamp, so called, for £560." These 
Items I found in Litchfield Records, \'ols. L and II. Had the spirit 
of speculation already descended upon the earliest colonists of that 
section I 

Samuel was town clerk in Branford from December. 1721, to 
November 22d. 174^^ a period of twenty-five years. The records 
are in his handwriting from Vol. IW. page 384 to Vol. VJ.. page 602. 

It is a find round hand, easily read, and pleasant to the eyes of 
his great, great, great, great-granddaughter I 

In lanuarv, 1724-5. a license was granted him to keep a tavern 
in his now dwelling house until County Court in April, 1726. Bond 
of £20. This was renewed to "Capt. Samuel ?^Ialtbie" till 1728. 
How this title of Captain was secured I do not know, but it clung 
to him from 1727 to his death, and is found on his tombstone. [He 
was Saptain of Militia, according to Yale Class Histories.] 

In the manuscript records at the State House. Hartford. 'A^ol. 
III. Ecclesiastical." I found Samuel ]\Ialtbie's name signed to a peti- 
tion, Mav 12. 1726. Its nature I have not recorded. 


The latest date thus far has been 1746, the close of his quarter- 
century as town clerk. Xext comes his will four years later — 
January 4th, 1750-1. made nearly a year before his death. "Being 
very sick and broke in body" he signed it only with a mark! This 
was found among the Probate Records of Guilford. The estate was 
\alued at £7425.45. Lands amounted to more than £5000. A negro 
boy, silver spoons, clock, ring, seal and coat-of-arms are mentioned 
ill the personal property. How I should like to recover from the 
past all — not the African. 

This life which we have been tracing was closed on earth De- 
cember 2, 1 75 1, after fifty-eight and a half years. The burial was 
in Xorthford and it is probable Captain Samuel had moved from 
Branford Center to Xorthford — a part of Branford — where he owned 
land, and his son, Samuel (3), Jr., had settled. A picture of the 
tombstone is given in Booklet Xo. 2, page 70, also on page 68 the 
house built by his son. Samuel (3). and in which perhaps Captain 
Samuel died, as did five generations of his direct descendants. Is 
not this the oldest ^faltby house in existence? It has been sug- 
gested that the Association purchase it for a Repository and Rally- 
ing place I 

The children of Captain Samuel (2) were Abigail. James and 
Rebecca, who died before their father; Samuel (3) Jr.. Mary and 
Sarah, who outlived him. 

This son, Samuel (3), Jr., was father of the third Samuel (4). 
Then followed John (5), Rev. John (6) and another Samuel (7) 
my brother. So the line has been : — 

1. W'ilHam. the emigrant 

2. Capt. Samuel 

3. Samuel 

4. Samuel 

5. John 

6. Rev. John 

7. Samuel — seven generations with the very remarkable record 
that all sleep in tlie X'orthford "God's Acre" with the exception of 
the first, our common ancestor. 

The following: records were lar2:elv furnished bv Mrs. Cushman 
and arranged and added to by the compiler. 



Samuel ]\Ialtby is called Captain and Squire. He was born at 
Branford. Aug. 7, i6c;3, and the record of his birth is there to be 
seen in the handwriting of his father. He was baptized the same 
month. ( Branf. Ch. Rec. in M.S.) 

1712. He was graduated at Yale College in the class of 1712 

with the degree of A.B., at the age of 19 (Yale Triennial Catalogue). 
His father's death occurred during his colles^e course, and on Tan. 
13, 1 71 2- 1 3, we find, at a Court held this date, "Samuel ]\Iaultby, 
minor, of Branford. by Samuel Bishop, his overseer and next friend, 
and William ]\Iaultby, of New Haven, minor, by Elizabeth Maultby, 
his mother and next friend, plaintiflfs contra Henry Cook of Bran- 
ford, yeoman and defendant." 

1 71 5. Samuel ]\Ialtby married Elizabeth Barker, Dec. 8, 171 5. 
(She was born in Branford, Dec, 1691, Bran. Rec. \V)1. II.) The 
ceremony was performed by Xathan Harrison, Justice of the Peace, 
as was the custom of the day, but he was very probably a near rela- 
tive, as Elizabeth Barker was the daughter of William and Eliza- 
beth Harrison Barker. Elizabeth Harrison was born in 1667 and 
was the daughter of Sergt. Thomas Harrison, who was born in 
England in 1630 and married March 29, 1665-6. the widow Elizabeth 
Stent. He died in Branford in 1704. According to Branford Burial 
Elizabeth Harrison Barker died Jan. 22, 1741. and her husband. 
William Barker, died Feb. i. 1741. (For the Harrison data T am

1740. in connection with Capt. Samuel Alaltby it wuuld 
perhaps be well to turn to Part I. under date 1740, and read the 
article copied from Thomas Hutchinson's History of ]\Iassachusetts, 
which refers to "]\Ir. ]\Ialtby, a large dealer in Coventry Stuffs and 
a zealous dissenter'' and who seems to have spent "three weeks at 
Coventry," using all his influence. Did he visit relatives in Eng- 
land, and perhaps luring back with him the coat-of-arms men- 
tioned in his inventory? 

1743. We insert a deed, dated 1743. The question arises as 
to whether it pertains to Samuel Maltby, son of William, Esq. We 
know of no other Samuel Maltby living at this date. Of course 
it might be that the following record concerns a descendant of 
Robert Alaltby, the emigrant. It is an unsolved problem at present. 

"Springfield Deeds, \^ol. X., 207. Xormand Morrison of Hart- 
ford, etc., £1000 to Samuel Maltby of Boston in the Co. of Suft"olk 
and province of Mass. Bay, Alerchant, two parcells of land lying 
in the town of Bedford in the Co. of Hampshire, 1238 acres. 

"20 April, 1 743-" 

The compiler believes this refers to Samuel (3), son of Capt. 
Samuel (2). He was born in 1718, hence would have been 25 
years of age in 1743. There is another Boston record in 1739. 
which reads: "Samuel Maltby married Ann Dyer at Boston, April 
30. 1739." This is evidently the same Samuel as of Deed dated

The following Land Record from Branford, \'ol. \1., dated 
Jan. 7, 1758, is worth inserting here:

It is a matter for sincere regret that the coat-of-arms men- 
tioned in this inventory has been lost to posterity. It might prove 
the strongest possible evidence in making the connection with some 
ancient English pedigree.

Additional Notes of the Descendants of Samuel (2) Maltbv 

Samuel (3) ^^laltby m. (i) Abigail Wilford, and (2) Rebecca 
Foote. Child by first wife was Abigail. By second wife : Samuel, 
James, Jonathon and Rebecca. 


Elizabeth (3) ]\Ialtb\'. believed to have died unmarried. 

Alary (3) ]\Ialtby m. William Gould, Jr. She had a son, Sam- 
uel Gould. There may have been other children. 

Sarah (3; ]\Ialtby m. Edward Russell of Branford. Children 
were John, Sarah, ]\Iary, Abigail and Abigail. 

\^ CAPT. JOXATHOX MALTBIE (2), Gentleman 

Jonathon ]\Ialtbie, the eighth child of William Alaltby and the 
second child of his third wife, Abigail Bishop, was born at Bran- 
ford, Conn., July 26, 1698, and his birth is so recorded in the hand- 
writing of his father. (Branf. Rec, Vol. IL) He was baptized 
the same month. (Branf. Ch. Records, in M.S.) 

In March. 1715, at the age of seventeen he united with the 
church at Branford (Branf. Ch. Man. p. 21). In Oct., 1710, Daniel 
Maltbie, his half-brother, was "appointed guardian to Jonathon 
Maltbie, minor, son of W'm. ]\Ialtbie of Branford, deceased" (New 
Haven Probate Rec, \'ol. TIL. p. 235). Jonathon at this time was 
twelve years old. But Daniel was guardian for not more than two 
years, as then we find "Jonathon ]\Iaultbie, Minor, choose ]\Ir. Ed- 
ward Barker of Branford to be his guardian." (Xew Haven Pro- 
bate Rec, p. 66, A'ol. T. ?) 

1718-19, Jan. License was granted to Jonathon Maltbie of 
Branford to practice the art and mystery of a tanner" (County 
Court Rec. of X'ew Haven, A'ol. HI., p. loi). 

1719. Jonathon ^Maltbie married, Sept. 25, 1719, Mrs. Sarah 
Potter at Stamford. Conn. They were married by the Rev. John 

17 19, Oct. 26. Jonathon and Samuel ]\Ialtbie divide the land 
given them by their father (Branf. Rec, Vol. IV., p. 399). 

1 719, Oct. 26. Deed. "Samuel and Jonathon Alaltbie of 
Branford being fully persuaded it was ye mind and will of our 
Honrd Father, \\'m. Maltbie, that our brother Daniel ^Maltbie 
should have all his right and interest in Beacon Swamp, although 
not specified in ye last will of our Honrd Father, have therefore 
given, etc., all our right in ye above swamp — 8 acres" (\"ol. IV., 
p. 197, Branford Records). 

This is an act of generosit}- and "square-dealing" that may well cause 
a feeling of just pride and respect in all descendants. 


Jonathon Alaltby evidently resided at Branford in the family 
homestead which became his by his father's will, 1710, until about 
1720, when he evidently removed to Stamford, Conn., for the next 
record we find is : 

1722, Dec. 7. "Deed. Jonathon ]\Ialtbie of Stamford, gentle- 
man, gives land to Edward Barker in Branford" (Branf. Rec, Vol. 
IV., p. 446). 

1722, April 16. "Jonathon IMaltbie of Stamford, cordwainer, 
sells Samuel ]\Ialtbie of Branford, 2 acres and 3 rods of land in 
Branford, for iio" (Branf. Rec, Vol. IV., p. 426). 

XoTE. — Here we find him called "cordwainer," while in a previous rec- 
ord he is licensed to be a tanner." Evidently he was proficient at both "arts." 

1722, Dec. 7. ''Deed. Jonathon Maltbie of Stamford, cord- 
wainer, for £130 gives his brother. Daniel ]^Ialtbie, of Branford, 10 
acres of land, being Jonathon's share of the home lot, given him 
by his father, William" (Branf. Rec, \'ol. IV., p. 445). 

1723, ]\Iarch 25. "Jonathon ]\Ialtbie of Stamford, gentleman, 
for £38 — 10 gives to his brother, Samuel Maltbie, of Branford, his 
interest in Cow pasture, 16^ acres" (Branf. Rec, \'ol. IV., p. 478). 

The History of Stamford says the first mention of Jonathon 
Maltbie is made among those who came in between 1643 ^^^^^ the 

Jonathon IMaltbie represented the town of Stamford in the 
Legislature from 1735 to 1756 inclusive. He was also Captain of 
Company Two and on his resignation Ebenezer Weed was chosen 
Captain, about the year 1755. Begining in 1728 he servered as 
townsman, or selectman for twenty years and at this time was called 
^lajor IMaltbie. 

X. B. — The spelling is as that in the item sent me. Taken from Hun- 
tington's Hist, of Stamford. 

Rev. E. B. Huntington also says that Jonathon Maltbv was 
Captain of Company 2 in the French and Indian war. 

In the records of the First Church, bc^un Jan. t, 1747, is the 
name of "Jonathon Maltbie, Esqre." 

Quoting again from Huntinofton : ''Anions^ the town notables 
of that day. 1746. were Col. Jonathon Hoyt, Captain Jonathon Malt- 
bie and Mr. Abraham Davenport."

6. Hannah, b. Oct. 30, 1741, at Stamford. 

7. David, b. ^lay 14. 1748. (This should probably be James). 

Note. — The births that have "at Stamford" after them were copied from 
the Stamford records by Rev. R. B. Thurston, in a letter dated "Stamford, 
Jan. 17, 1866" and written to Mrs. John P. Cushman. There is evidently a 
mistake in the name of the last child given, as he could not have been born 
in 1748, and married in 1749. There is confusion in the records somewhere. 
One authority gives "Davide Maltbie married Sarah Holly, Sept. 28, 1749.' 
while another claims their son Jonathon was born Sept. 28, 1749. Personally 
I believe that the name of the last born child of Jonathon (2) Maltby was 
James, and for proof would give the will of his mother. For records of 
the descendants of Jonathon Maltby (2) see Maltby Genealogy. 

The Compiler is indebted to Mrs. Aaron T. Bailey and Miss Emily A. 
Lynes, descendants of Jonathon (2) for much of the data contained in this 
sketch. Mrs. Bailey and Miss Lynes endeavored to locate the grave of Capt. 
Jonathon Maltby and his old homestead, but unsuccessfully. 

For the following wills of Jonathon and ^Irs. Sarah Potter 
^Maltby we are indebted to Miss Ethel Lord Scofield of Xew Haven 
and regret that time prohibited the copying of his inventorv.

In the name of God Amen. 

I, Sarah Alaltbie of Stamford in Fairfield County & Connecti- 
cut Colony in Xew England being of Sound mind & memory for 
which God Almighty be Thanked yet being advanced in years & 
Labouring Lender bodily Sickness and knowing that it is appointed 
for all Alen once to die and not knowing how soon mv Change

viz. : 

First of all I Give my soul to God who gave it me, hoping 
■in his mercy thro' the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ for the pardon 
of all my sins & my body to the Earth to be l)uried in a decent 
Christian ^Manner according to the Discretion of ni\- Executor here-

Mary \\^aterbury to be equally Divided between them and to be 
unto them the sd Abigail & Mary and to their Heirs & Assigns

an equal share with her Sisters is not for want of an equal affection 
to her but because my Dec'd Son James hath given her such a 
Legacy that I have not enough to make her Sister's equal with her 
& the Reason why I do not give some part of my Estate to the 
children of my Dear Son David ^laltbie is not for want of a Suit- 
able aff'ection for them but because my Dec'd Husband gave to their 
Dec'd Father more than an equal share of his Estate. 

Lastly I do nominate, constitute & appoint my Loving and 
Trusting Son-in-law Major David Waterbury Sole Executor of this 
my Last Will & Testament & I hereby give him full power & author-

Note. — Mrs. ]\Ialtbie was aged and feel)le when she made her will, hence 
the "mark" ; this does not in any w^a}' indicate that she was unable to write, 
as witness the will of Samuel (2) Maltbie, who signed his will with a 
"mark"" although he wrote an unusually fine hand. 


Still standing in P'airfield. Connecticnt, is the Hulkley House, now 
137 years old. This house, which antedates the Revolutionary War, 
was the home of Peter Ebenezer Bulkley and his wife, Hannah (3) 
Maltbie. The P>ridgeport Daily Standard, ATarch 11, 1916, publishes 
a photograph of this old Colonial home and also an interesting 
a:-ticle on the history of the Pulkleys, by Helen Harrison, from 
which we quote the most important items. 

''The Bulkley family is sufficiently interesting to sketch its 
early history. Thomas Bulkley was the second son of Rev. Peter 
Bulkley, who was the tenth in line from Lord Robert Bulkeley, of 
"Bulkeley" maimr, nr as it was spelled in ancient days, ''Buclough." 
He lived at the manor dnrin^^' the reign of King John, who died in 

Peter Bulkley was born at Woodhill. Bedfordshire, England, 
in 1583. He succeeded his father, the Rev. Edward Bulkley, D.D., 
in the ministry of his native town. . . . He emigrated to Xew 
England about 1635, in the "Susan and Ellen." 

Peter Ebenezer Bulkley lived in the house at the time the Brit- 
ish sailed up the Sound to make an attack on Fairfield. (The view 
of the house given in ^Tiss Harrison's article, presents the side 
f^pen to the fire of the British, eiuis. ) 

Tt is said that one of the old shintjles on the house at that time 
is preserved as a relic by a Bridgeport family and shows the bullet 


As the British fleet was sighted, the men of the town, among 
them the head of the Biilkley house, hastened to the fort on Grovers 
Hill witht Lieutenant Jarvis/ ^Ir. Bulkley's wife. Hannah, a daugh- 
ter of Major Jonathon (2) Maltbie. hurried the eldest son. 
Eben(ezer), 12 years of age, out to the yard for the oxen, hitched 
out front. The cart was hastily loaded with a few of the most 
necessary household efifects and the five children were bundled on 
top, the house abndoned and the family set out for a place of safety 
back in the country." (These children were Ebenezer. aged 12: 
Hannah. 10: ]\Ialtbie, 8: Sarah. 5. and Mary. 3. This liurried flight 
in 1778 may account for the fact that the records show that the 
sixth child. John, born Oct. 28, 1778. died shortly after. In 178 1 
Abigail was born and the last child. George, was born in 1784.) 
'"They had trundled along for five miles, up towards Plattsville, 
before a place of refuG^c was found, with some hospitable farmers 
by the name of Wilson. 

The possible arrival of the British at the town of Fairfield had 
been anticipated and to guard against an unprepared attack, the 
family had taken the precaution to hide its mure valuable possessions. 
Some of the lovely old blue china, brought by the trading vessels 
from the famous ]:>otteries of China and other far eastern ports, 
was hidden in a hole in the garden. Some delicate crystal bearing 
an ornamental tracing in delicate lines, was also carefully buried. 
The simple pewter plates and platters, beautiful in shape, were 
among the treasures consigned to the hiding place in the ground 
until the enemy should have departed. Some of these interesting 
relics of the Bulkley family, which were afterwards unearthed and 
given their place of honor again in the corner cupboard, are now 
in the possession of Airs. F. \\\ Bolande, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
John H. Beach and also a great-great-granddaughter of Maltbie 
Bulkley, who was born in 1770, and was one of the children to 
make his escape on the family oxcart." (Air. F. C. Alorehouse. a 
member of the Maltby Association, owns an old powder horn which 
belonged to this Alaltbie Bulkley.) "Maltbie Bulkley's daughter, 
Ruth, born in 1800. made one of the elaborate bed spreads, with a 
design in French knots, all the work of the hand looms and of her 
nimble fingers. This, too, is a treasured possession of Mrs. Bolande. 

t This Lieut. Jarvis we believe to be Lieut. Isaac Jarvis, born .Jan. 20, 
1756. He married Abigail Squire, who was a daughter of Samuel and 
Abigail (3) (Maltbie) Squire. She was a daughter of Jonathon (2) Maltbie 


After the family had safely o^ot away, the British made a 
landinc: in spitL- of the fire from the fort, and of the bold front 
m.aintained by the little group of defenders. As they made their 
march up Beach lane, one of the first houses to be encountered was 
the Bulkley's, from which the family had so recently fled. They 
put the torch to it and passed on in spite of the fact that Trvon 
had promised that this and the other houses near it should be saved 
because of the aid given him by the brother of ^Irs. Jonathon 
Bulkley, who liverl opposite. A scout followed in the trail of the 
invaders to put nut the fires, if possible. 

The little family, who had fled, had left the washtubs filled with 
water in their haste. Before the flames had gained much headway 
with the hard and large timbers with which the house was con- 
structed, the scout dashed the water on the flames and quickly had 
them extinguished. =:==;< ^ 

The motto of the Bulkley family, translated, means, "Xeither 
rashl\- nor timidlw" and the records of the little red salt-box house 
during the troublesome times of the Revolution showed that the 
iriotto was a fitting one. 

We append a short note concerning the children of Jonathon 
(2) Maltbie. 

bjnathon (3) Maltbie mar. Abigail Holmes of Greenwich, 
Conn., and had an only child, Jonathon (4;. b. Dec. 7, 1744. He 
became Captain Alaltbie. See his biography. 

Abigail (3) Maltbie mar. Sanuiel Squire of Fairfield, Conn, 
and had children : Samuel, Sarah, John, David, Abigail, George and 

David (3) Maltbie. mar. Sarah Holly. They had children: 
Sarah, Hannah (who died young), David (also died young), Abi- 
gail, David and Hannah. From the above Sarah (4) Maltbie, who 
married Stephen X'ewman. descend Mr. Henry Brown Davton, Mrs. 
Samuel Bradlee Doggett, and Mrs. William Davis Patterson, whose 
names will be found on the membership list.

''A Spartan mother I" do they say 
Who sees New England's coasts of gray? 
"A Spartan mother!" they exclaim, 
And hasten back to whence they came. 

So to the child of warmer birth 
May seem this rugged bit of earth ; 
Unsmiling, stern, forbidding, — yea, 
Repellant, with its skies of gray. 

But Wq, who know and love to trace 
Each line upon our ]^Iother*s face. 
We know, as loving children should, 
Her everv phase and trait and mood. 

We know her iron-bound coasts that ring 
To Ocean's age-old buffeting : 
Unconquerable, squared to "face the front,'' 
And take — of what may come — the brunt. 

\\'e know her gentle inland hills ; 
The merry topaz brook which fills 
Our leafy cup as we lie and dream 
Long hours away beside its stream. 

We know her deep pine woods whose trees 
^Murmur and breathe in the keen salt breeze 
While out from the pine needles' sheltering. 
The scent of the ^Mayflower tells of spring. 

^^ e know the harvest fields, and the moon 
W hich tells of a winter coming soon. 
\\ e know the ice fringed marsh and shore — 
These thins^s we know, and far, far more. 


We know the children our Mother has reared — 
World-wide respected, and honored anrl feared. 
Wliere'er has been danger, or work to be done, 
There has been, and shall be, a Xew England son. 

Saints, soldiers and statesmen, where'er there is need, 
Some child of Xew England stands ready to lead. 
For the ri^iht : for the faith, for the weak airainst strong^. 
Glad to die, if in dying they vanquish some wrong. 

''A Spartan mother!"" Yes, and we 
Accept the title reverently, 

Rejoicing in her qualities 

W'liulesome and keen as an ocean breeze. 

And so from Xorth and South and West 
Home we come at last to rest. 
To the land we love beyond all other 
To our X'ew England — Spartan mother! 


Rev. jonathon Maltby was a great-grandson of the emigrant 
ancestor, William Maltby. Esq., of Branford. and to him we owe 
much of the genealogical data contained in the present ]\Ialtbv 
Genealogy, particularly of the early generations. 

Through the kindness of Mrs. Samuel E. Shipp, a descendant 
of his, we are able to reproduce here a copy of an oil painting made 
some years ago by ?^Irs. Shipp of the homestead of her great-grand- 
father. The old homestead was called "Maltby Place" and was 
delightfully situated on the bank of the river, alas, for posteritv. 
it was too near the river ! For when the two elderly maiden ladies, 
daughters of Rev. Jonathon (4), died, someone, we know not who, 
''got rid of the stuff" by throwinij the contents of the attic into the 
river. And in this attic were all sorts and countless numbers of old 
things, now so prized by lovers of the antique, and chests of old 
letters and manuscripts there were without end. 

The compiler is fortunate in the possession of two old plates 
which belong to Rev. Jonathon ]\Ialtby and possibly to his father, 



Benjamin, though this is not certain. A "coffin handled" table 
spoon, however, came from his mother and bears the mark E. AI. 
for Elizabeth ( Fowler j ]\Ialtby. This spoon descended to a daugh- 
ter of Jonathon (4) and is marked also with her initials. The 
writer remembers well what a delightful air of the past this old 
homestead used to have about it. 

To Airs. Theodore Clark we are indebted for a copv of a love 
letter written a few days prior to his marriage to his betrothed. 
Submit Taintor, by Rev. Jonathon Alaltby. \Miile calling on Airs. 


Stevens in Fair Haven, Conn., the compiler had the pleasure of 
seeing the charmingly simple but elegant wedding dress of this old- 
time bride. Alade in the Empire style with low neck and short 
sleeves, of a heavy white silk with a fine blue stripe and an indis- 
tinct pale yellow figure in it. An old manuscript written by Rev. 
Jonathon dealing with the Alaltby Genealogy and tied with bits 
of silk like this wedding gown, was given me by Airs. Stevens and 
is a highly valued treasure. 


The following is a copy of the letter : 

New Haven, June 5th, 1787. 
]\Iy dearest friend : — 

I depend upon being at Xorthford Sabbath after next extraor- 
dinaries excepted. On the evening of that day I expect to hear of 
the Bride and Bridegroom. It will be the most joyful ! The most 
interesting hour of my life ! 

I expect on that portentious moment to surrender myself at 
discretion — a voluntary captive to sweet smiling Hymen, a Devotee 
to Beauty and to A'irtue — to be, not my own, but another's : to give 
mv hand and ni}- heart, and to receive in return the fair hand and 
the affectionate heart of my Other Self. 

I will be thine — entirely thine — and thou shalt be mine, entirely 
mine, with all thy engaging and unfading charms. Happy ! Happy 
Union I which harmonizes Two in One 1 1 

"Tis Hymen lights the torch of love. 
And beams benignant as the sun ; 
The daw, the rook, and gentle dove 
Are ne'er content till two are one. 

Innocence and \'irtue are inseparably allied : em1)lematical of 
their purity is the pure white of this half sheet, which excites the 
followini^ allusion : 

Thnu art the dear Maiden innocently sweet, 
W h() art fair white paper, an unsullied sheet, 
I am the happy man, whom Heaven ordains 
To write fair my name and take thee for my pains 
Has Revd. sufficient health to tie the lovely bands ? Or will 
it be expedient to invite my Revd. friend, Mr. Holmes, to ride out 
with me. and perform the gentle office? 

\\'ith the finest sensibilities and the purest emotions, I am 
waiting to be completely yours. 

Jonathon Maltby. 

In booklet number one, issued by the Maltby association we 
published an article written by Rev. Jonathon Maltby and whicli 
proves he was "under fire" in the Revolutionary War, which seems 
of sufficient importance to warrant reprinting here. 

]\Ialtby Place, April 21, 1848. 
Birthday of my 90th year. 

At war with sin, heart from the world full-riven, aged and 
wearv, the soul longs for heaven. 


With one or two exceptions I have out-Hved all my contem- 
poraries, relatives and friends. Joseph Darling, Esqr., of the class 
of 1/77 '^"^^^ classmate, Hon. Eliznr Goodrich, D.D.L., are now liv- 
ing in this city. { XoTE i). I am oldest of the three. The former 
Treasurer of dear Yale, the venerable Deacon Beers, is several 
years my senior. 

More than three score years ago, three brothers, in good health, 
were daily looking and expecting to see me sink into the grave. I 
was struggling with a violent cough and disordered lungs. But, 
1 remain a monimient of mercy. "A W^onder to ^^lany ! A \\^on- 
der To Myself !"' 

In my 90th year, 63rd \ear of wedded life. Read and write 
more than in any former time without aid of glasses. I am the only 
survivor of my father's numerous family. Mrs. ]\I. is the only 
one living of her father's ( XoTE II.) family, and is closing her 
85th year. 

My connection with college was in 1775. In tlie days that 
"tried men's souls," in time of the Revolutir)n. A war spirit pre- 
vailed in the old 13 — Patriotism warmed the hearts of the free born 
sons of Yale. Fired with the news of the death of their country- 
men at Lexington, 100 of her sons, marshaled for fight, rush 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 fight 
him ?" 

The upper classes, in the interval of studies, are on the lower 
green (XoTE III.j with their music, practicing, marching, maneu- 
vering. . . . Soon after my acquaintance with alma mater. Col. 
Ira Allen from \ ermont, brought the good news of the capture 
■of the fort of the St. John's — a thrill of joy pervades the city and 
the college. Cannon are ordered out, 13 thunders, one for each 
state, tell the heartfelt joy. At the last fire, the Col., soldier-like, 
leaped on the cannon, swimg 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 X'. Haven, that it was dis- 
persed 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 tliree or four thousand 
British troops enter X. H. Night before at 9 o'clock an alarm was 
fired, again at i. which put the town in the utmost consternation. 
That night and next day exhibiting such excruciating distress 
among the women and children as I hope and pray I may never 
again witness. 

The students request the Selectmen of the town to furnish 
them with arms to meet the enemy — but are not able. Three of my 
class obtain arms and go out with Capt. Hillhouse and the Guards. 
David Austin and Elizur Goodrich are wounded, Austin brings in 
a prisoner (After Revd. D. Austin). Hon. Elizur Goodrich was 
a captive and Dr. Xesbitt pronounces his wound mortal. After 
being one night in town they cross next morning to East Haven. 
While in town they burn buildings, destroy house furniture, mer- 
chants' goods and groceries, and do all the damage that they could 
well do. The distress they made I will not attempt to describe. 
On Tuesday, I was one of a reconnoitering party on East Haven 
Heights where balls were whistling constantly, but no "music for 
me." A cannon ball took off all upper part of a Mr. Pardee's head 
and several were wounded. We have the pleasure to witness this 
i6th of Aug., that the wound of the Hon'l Elizur Goodrich was not. 
mortal — with heartfelt joy we behold him one of the happv 
alumni. fITere follows a short genealogical sketch.)

Rev. Jonathon (4) ]\Ialtby was a son of Henjamin (3), grand- 
son of Daniel (2) and great-grandson of ^^'illiam ( i). 


General Isaac Maltby was born X^ov. to. 1767 at X'orth- 
lord. Conn. Ife was graduated at Yale College in T786. 
He was a son of Benjamin and Elizabeth Fowler ]\Ialtbv. 
his wife, and a grandson of Daniel (2). He was a student 
of divinity with Dr. Smalley of New l^ritain. Conn., and 
was admitted to the church there July T2, T789. and licensed to 
preach the same year by New Haven. East. He married, Nov. 10, 
T790, at Hatfield, :\Iass., Lucinda Murray, the only child of Seth 
INIurray, who was a Brigadier-General in the Hampshire Militia in 



the time of the Revolutionary War, and he was persuaded by his 
father-in-law to settle in Hatfield. General Isaac and his wife re- 
sided most of their lives in her paternal mansion and their twelve 
children were all born in the same house where their mother was 
born. The house still stands on the ]Main Street at the turn of the 
Northampton road. (See photograph.) Gen. Is^ac Maltby served 
throughout the \\'ar of 1812 and was a distin-^uished soldier and 
scholar. His commissions are in the possession of his granddaugh- 
ter, ]\Irs. Frederick E. Foster. 

General Isaac ]\Ialtby served as representative from Hatfield 
in the ^Massachusetts Legislature in 1809-10. He was the author 

(Here Gen. Isaac ^laltby Married and Resided) 

of three books on military science, viz.: "Elements of War," "]\Iili- 
tary Tactics" and "Court Martial." 

In 1803 ^^^ ^^'^s appointed major in the militia. He took an 
active part in proceedings that were instituted vs. Gen'l Benj. 
Lincoln when he was collector of the port of Boston. In 181 2 he 
was chosen Presidential Elector at a period in American History 
v/hen the Electoral College was composed of notable men and when 
it was intended to select deliberately the President of the L'nited 
States. In 1813 he was made Brigadier-General of ]\Iass. ^^lilitia 


with headquarters in Boston, his son. Seth Alurray MaUby, being 
paymaster in the same brigade with the rank of major. In 1816 
he was again elected to the legislature and in 18 18 he removed to 
Waterloo, Seneca County, Xew York, where he died the following 
year (1819). 

The Xew Eng. Hist, and Gen. Reg. (1865), Vol. XIX., p. 338, 
has an article headed: "Reminiscences Connected with the War of 
1812." It commences as follows: "In the summer of 1814 many 
portions of the militia of Massachusetts were called into actual 
service for the defence of the seaboard, especially in and near Bos- 
ton. . . . Another brigade of the volunteer militia, organized and 
placed under the command of Brigadier-General Isaac Maltby, of 
Hatfield. ..." (p. 339). "The regiment went into camp at Cam- 
bridge for a few days, but was soon removed to a place called Com- 
mercial Point, Dorchester, where were better accommodations. 

"At Commercial Point, the regiment was drilled daily in the 
manual exercise, marching, wheeling, etc. It was reviewed twice at 
a place called Cedar Point, and on Boston Common by Governor 
Strong, Adjutant General Brooks, Generals Cobb, ]^Iattoon, Whiton, 
]\Ialtby. Blair and others, General Cobb remarking, 'That regiment 
knows enough and ought to go home and let the ignorant come and 
learn.' " A remark whicli must have been satisfying, as a well 
earned tribute, to Gen. Isaac ]\Ialtbv. 

His brother, Rev. Jonathon Maltby, speaks of him "as an 
eminent teacher of music." 

XoTE. — It was the good fortune of the compiler to see a passport through 
the lines signed by Gen. Isaac Maltby, a document among many JMaltby papers 
which liave become the property of a dealer in antiques. 

A letter from Rev. Jonathon Maltby to his brother. General 
Isaac Maltby, of Hatfield, ]\Iass., dated "Xew Haven, June 20, 
1812," is of sufficient interest to descendants to publish in abstract 

form : 

"Dear Brother — 

"You will remember that on the 12th of July, 179^, I an- 
nounced to you the aftecting death of our much bond Father — you 
are now daily expecting to hear of the death of his aged consort, 
our dear mother. But. Sir, the ways of unerring God are not the 
wavs of erring man . . . it is not the lioarv headed motlier, but 
her youngest child, our dear Brother Stephen ! 


"On ^londay evening. 226. Inst., at 12 o'clock the lamp of 
life was extinguished — after a week's illness. ... A mother, a 
wife and her fatherless children, three Brothers and an only Sister 
mourn with heartfelt sorrow the sudden death," etc.

Copy of letter from the 

Honl. George Thatcher, of Supreme Court, 

J. Hill. Esq. 

Biddeford, nth Feb'y 1810. 
^ly Dear Sir, 

I have just read Genl Maltby 's Report Published in the Pal- 
ladium on our Foreign Relations & the Condtict of our Xational 
xAdministration in relation to the famous pretended insult. The 
Report I fully approve : & to reject it or in anything to weaken 
It would be treason against good sense & soiuid policy, & it would 
be more crnninal than to have pardoned Luke Day in the time of 
Shyes insurrection. Therefore I tell you now, as I told you at 
that time "do anything but pardon Luke Day." If yoti reject those 
Resolutions, you must not return to Biddeford. 

Who is this Genl ^^laltby? His Report argues good. Tf 1 
am not mistaken he made a very energetic Report & Speech on 
some great national question last Winter."^ I like him. If you

An account of General Isaac Maltby would be incomplete were 
some mention not made of a few of his descendants who are, or 
should be, well known to the public today. 

The fourth child of General Isaac Maltby was Maria Maltby, 
who married Thomas Cuttinc: Love of New York. Their oldest 
daughter, Aladame Gary (Julia Love) has recently died at her home 
in Buffalo, Xew Y^ork. Madame Gary was a remarkable woman 
of rare individuality and charm. The following extracts concerning 
her life are taken from the Buffalo Gourier and the Buffalo News, 
of October 9th and loth, 191 5: "In the passing of YIme. Gary 
(Julia Love), Buffalo loses a beautiful woman — beautiful in the 
highest sense of the term — one with all the graces of mind and 
heart and femininity, a typical gentlewoman, whose loveliness was 
compelling. Devoted to home, she was always the center of a 
large family circle, who gave her unmeasured love and attention. 

But outside of her kinspeople there were many to whom ]Mme. 
Gary was known, for in her younger days she was the acknowledged 
leader of Buffalo society, and still with the passing of the years, 
this fine gentlewoman held sway, even though Buffalo society is 
made of many circles. Xo charity ball, the climax of each season's 
gaiety, has seemed complete without the presence of ]\Ime. Gary, 
the grande dame in her shimmering ivory satins and rare laces, and 
her advent was always marked by a hum of interest and a steady 
stream of friends to pay court to her in her box. And a rarely 
lovelx' ])icture she made in her sweet dignitv, product of the elegant 
training of past generations, with a spirit of unquenched youth. 
Though old in years, as they are counted, Mme. Gary was as young 
as the youngest and loved to be surrounded by youth and beauty, 
and to youth and beauty she was ever a stately queen, to whom it 
was a happiness to pay court. 

Everv afternoon at ^ o'clock ]\Ime. Garv was wont to take her 
daily drive, and, in tlic ])arks, her passinc: was always marked with 
mterest by those who knew her. and by those who saw only a 
lovely old lady, just stepped from a bower of lavender and flowers 
to enjoy an outing in the sunlight. 

"It is given to few women to stand out alone, with no double, 
no rival, in a city of half a million, and it is thus Mme. Gary 
lias stood for more than half a century. Her death yesterday 
leaves a vacancy none may hope to fill, because of her enormous 
mdividualitv and her consistent expression of the same. * * * 
"She had just returned, with her sister. Miss Love, from an ex- 
tended trip to Panama, to the San Diego and San Francisco expo- 


sitions, where she was honored by everyone, many special atten- 
tions being paid her in San Francisco where she had manv friends." 

The return trip was made over the Canadian Pacific route and 
to her every mile of the trip was a delight * * * and friends 
made her progress home by easy stages a journey de luxe." "So 
much was the journey enjoyed by her. that she even talked of 
extending it to Honolulu and Japan." 

Madame Carv was eisrhtv-eiiiht vears of a2:e. Five sons and 
the husband of her only daughter acted as bearers at her funeral, 
while two grandsons and a great grandson attended the services 
at the family lot at Forest Lawn." 

The above notices refer to ^Ime. Carv's onlv daus^hter, wlio 
is Airs. Lawrence Dana Rumsey. Her son, Charles Cary Rumsey, 
liad many beautiful pieces of sculpture at the San Francisco expo- 
sition, and his Pizzaro was one of the four great pieces at the 

Airs. Rumsey's voungest son, Lawrence, deserves special men- 
tion m these pages. He comes from a Ions: line of "fighting an- 
cestors." Since 1630 his ancestors on the Maltby and \Vhite side 
of the house have been fighters. French-Indian wars. Revolutionary 
War, the War of 1812 and our own Civil War have found his 
forebears ready to fight, and if need be, die for their country, ^^'e 
have not forgotten that in the black days of our own struggle for 
Liberty, France came to our aid — certainly ]\Ir. Rumsey has re- 
membered, for now "somewhere in France" his aeroplane hovers 
over the battlefields. 

Shortly after war broke out Mr. Rumsey went to Dunkirk 
and served ten months in the American Ambulance Corps, carrying 
the sick and wounded from the station to hospitals about the town 
and countryside, at times chased by German Taubes dropping 
shells at the line of Red Cross ambulances as close as 50 yards! 
At the front trenches near Y'pres he took his turn relieving the 
exhausted chauffeurs. Six days was ^11 a strono^ man could endure 
at a time. HMiile at Ypres he walked over to "The Cloth House 
Tower" and picked a vellow rose which he sent his mother.) Later 
Air. Rumsey joined The Foreisfn Legion to become an aviator. 
His quickness of action acquired from polo, hockey and football 
have doubtless been a great help in preparins: him for this stu- 
pendous game of war. Four months' study and thrilling practice 


at Paris, France, won his "brevet" (commission) as "Pilot;" al- 
though he had hoped to obtain a "chasseur" — a plane that is used 
to chase off and fight to the death the Zeppelins, but it happens 
that these require men long in the service, who do not even tJiink 
of their machines I ]\Ir. Rumsey's letters are concise and brief — 
and he failed to speak of his escape from an accident and splintered 
plane, until his family wrote for particulars, having seen the report 
in a newspaper. 

Air. Rumsey was practicing his ''test for a triangle" at an 
p.ltitude of 3,600 feet; he had reached his second side when the 
engine went dead, and the plane, upside dozvn, fell 2,400 feet, he 
pulling and jerking to start the engine. 1,200 feet from the ground 
he was able to right himself and engine, but had to land as best 
he could, having no time to "pick the spot!" 

The next flight he was lost four hours in the clouds with no 
compass. Then at last he saw snow covered mountains, and put 
tor them as he realized he was over Spain and to land would mean 
"internment for the war." As his gasoline was low he was obliged 
to land again without reaching the hangar ; l)ut on the mountain 

He is "somewhere at the front" pilotting "map-takers" or 
'"bomb-throwers." The papers tell us frequently that "a squadron 
of French planes hovered over the battle fields," and that is all 
the news one gets, for the mails lately have l^rought no news to 
the anxious hearts at home. To this brave and gallant officer our 
hearts nuist go out in symj)athy with his work, and honor him as 
all such brave men should be honored, and when the time comes 
that our own country has need of such men and service, may we 
find the Spirit of '76 still living in the hearts of those Americans, 
who like ]\Ir. Rumsey, come from a long line of ancestors, who 
freely offered their lives to protect their homes, and their country. 

Another descendant of Gen. Isaac Maltby is Major Reginald 
Love Foster. Major Foster has kept up the military traditions 
of his family. He was in the class of '91. Yale University. Xow 
after twenty-two years of service he is a major in the 12th Infantry, 
U. G., X. \\, and aide de camp on the staff of Gov. Whitman. 
He also served in a similar capacity with Gov. Hue^hes, Gov. Sulzer. 
Gov. White and Gov. Glynn. Major Foster is a veteran of the 
Spanish-American war. and at present is a newspaper man on the 
New York World. 



wife of Gen. Isaac ^laltby 


Died at Buffalo, X. Y.. un June 9th. 1844, aged 73 years, relict 
of Gen. Isaac Maltby, who, in 1818, emigrated from Hattield, ^lass., 
to Waterloo, X. V., where he died in the following year. 

It ma\ be wondered at that a life so quiet and unobstrusive as 
Mrs. ]\Ialtby*s should hnd more than the common brief record of 
its close, and, especiall} , that it should call public attention in a 
part of the countr}' where she was never much known and from 
which she had l)een absent so many years. She had no ambition 
for posthumous renown. B\' none would it have been less expected 
than by her who was not emulous of distinction while among the 
living. She was too earnestly bent on dut}- to care much for fame. 
Her desire was to find favor in the sight of God ; and, surely, if 
in his sight "a meek and quiet spirit is of great price." hers is 
among the richest treasures gathered from the dust of the world. 

Mrs. Maltl)y was the daughter and. we believe, the only child 
of Col. Seth Murray, of Hatfield, and was bred in the most intelli- 
gent, rehned and virtuous society with which her native town and 
its vicinit) were favored. lUit she reckoned not quality by descent 
nor searched for her virtues in the family record. Se was a "lady" 
in the most honorable meaning of that misunderstood word — in those 
accomplishments which are of far more difficult attainment and of 
unspeakably more worth than all the affluence of fortune set oft" 
with the skill of politeness and the costly array of fashion. X'ot 
negligent of the ]:)roprieties of outward a])pearance and demeanor, 
the grace she most studied and was most adorned by, was of the 
liidden person of the heart. Good sense and great virtue were the 
worthy elements which made up her character — elements few as 
those of the air we breathe, and, like them, forming the transparent 
vital sustenance of being. Simplicity and godly sincerity a stranger 
would at once read in her countenance, and an acquaintance always 
admire in her life. Her benevolence was a matter of deep principle 
and active habit. It was not with her. as with too many, visible 
only in the sunshine and on the tranquil sea of life, but. like the 
humble yet sacred bird of the mariner, most sure to appear in the 
darkness and peril of the storm. The faults of others she had no 
willingness to search out, and therefore no special gift to find or 
to suspect : and. if their obvious presence could not escape her no- 
tice, she was more ready to pity and for^-ive than to inflict censure. 


however much deserved. The performance of her duties was a 
concern of every day and of all their hours. She was not of those 
who lived abroad, and run to and fro after piety. Her own house 
was her home, and her religion burned bright and cheerful at her 
own fireside. Neither was her welfare mainly sought in schemes 
and efforts for securing distant or imagined good, but her happi- 
ness was never nearer being complete than in promoting the joy 
of those around her. Nevertheless, the law of kindness in her heart 
\vas exceeding broad, and. while it shed a blessed influence on her 
own family and neighborhood, it spread over the largest circle of 
human need. The rites of hospitality she performed as if she were 
her own guest, except as she never seemed quite so happy as in 
blessing others, whether kindred or strangers. Her piety was of 
the quick conscience rather than of the nimble tongue and of a sim- 
ple rather than of subtle faith. Equally remote from the exclusive- 
ness of bigotry and the blindness of indiscriminate charitv, she 
thought well of all whose lives exhibited the principles of her 
blessed Lord and Redeemer. She did not exact from others duties 
which she was backward to perform herself; but as a wife and 
mother, as a friend and ncii;hbor, as a disciple and a professed 
follower of Christ, she was a pattern whom all in these relations 
miq-ht profitably imitate. 

Of her own goodness she was neither boastful nor seemed con- 
scious, and well could her lii)s afford to be silent when her life was 
so constant a repetition of praise. Hut with all of her excellent 
qualities, she was humble for defects not discerned l)v others, and 
prayerful for forgiveness of sins and for grace that in nothing she 
might offend. Tf meekness and gentleness, if undissembled good 
will, if not to be weary in well doing, if patience in tribulation, if 
communion with God. if an humble but cheerful hope in her Re- 
deemer are evidence of Christian character and of a title to the 
Christian's reward, her inheritance is now with the saints in light. 

Blessed spirit! Thou hast indeed entered into thy rest. Thou 
hast forsaken th.e cares, the sorrows, and all the infirmities of this 
sinful and troublous world. They shall never a^ain approach thee, 
for thou hast ascended to heaven and put on immortality! Thy 
bright example is yet with us. Happy shall tliey be who have the 
wisdom to imitate it. The glory which thou hast shall be theirs 

Reader, she who is the subject of this heartfelt tribute was to 
you personally unknown, and, perhaps, the present is the first time 
you have learned even that she lived. Rut, if to such virtues as 


adorned her life yours is not a stranger, this imperfect memorial will 
not be deemed unworthy of your regard. You will understand that 
the record of true goodness, wherever and whenever it has lived, 
though not even the name of its possessor were written, is grateful 
in every tongue of every clime.

(Mrs. Harlow Swain Love) 

For this sketch of Mrs. Harlow Swain Love we are indebted 
to her daughter. Mrs. Frederick E. Foster. Mrs. Love was a daugh- 
ter of General Isaac Maltby (See Biography.) 

Martha Church Maltby was the youngest of the ten children 
of Gen. Isaac Maltby and Lucinda Murray, his wife, who was the 
daughter of Gen. Seth Murray, an officer during the entire war of 
tlie Revolution and who participated in nearly all of the early 
engagements and was present at the Battle of Bennington, and also 
at the surrender of Fiurgoyne. She was born in Hatfield. Mass. ; 
later her parents removed to Waterloo, X. Y., when she was but 
two years of age, and upon her marriage to Mr. Harlow S. Love, 
tlieir home was established in Buft'alo, X. \'.. where all of her five 
children were born. Prior to i860 the family made several trips 
to California by way of Panama, and in that year they located 
permanently in San Francisco, where Mr. Love, until his death in 
1866, was a prominent member of the legal profession, and where, 
later, their son John became Attorney-General of the State of Cali- 
fornia and subsequently the city and county attorney of San 

Mrs. Love was a person of great intellectuality, refinement and 
cultivation and of a lovely and graceful presence. She was en- 
dowed 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 surroundings. To these qual- 
ities were united an unostentatious charity and helpfulness which 
all of her intimates have reason to remember with affectionate 
gratitude. Her literary attainments were of a hio^h order : and for 
manv years she contributed to the public prints articles on various 


subjects, which were widely read and favorably received. She 
also devoted much labor and attention to genealogical research, and 
was instrumental in tracing and rescuing from oblivion the Imes 
of her descent from Colonial and Revolutionary ancestors, all of 
whom were of distinguished stock. 

Airs. Love crossed the Pacific Ocean numerous times, visiting- 
Hong Kong, China, on the occasion of the marriage of her daughter, 
Leila, to AMlliam Hammond Foster. Jr. ( a member of the celebrated 
American house of Russell and Co., China) and some years later 
making her home with the youngest daughter, ^Martha, the wife of 
Frederick E. Foster, successively in Y'okohama, Japan, and Hong 
Kong. China, where Mr. Foster represented, as General Agent, the 
trans-Pacific lines of steamers plying between those ports and San 
Francisco. ]\lrs. Love and her husband are interred in Lone Moun- 
tain Cemetery, San Francisco, California, and are survived ( in 
1908) only by their daughter. Martha (Mrs. F. E. Foster) now re- 
siding in Mount \'ernon. \. Y.* 

XoTE. — Mr. Maximilian Foster, the well known author, is a son of Leila 
Love who married William Hammond Foster, Jr.. a grandson of Martha 
^Maltby Love, and great-grandson of General Isaac Maltby. 

]\Iajor Seth Murray Maltby. son of General Isaac, was the 
father of Mr. George Beecher Maltl)\'. Mr. John W'hitehouse Maltby 
and Mrs. Albert T. Higby (Mary Maltby). whose pictures will be 
found on the opposite page. George IJeecher and John W'hitehouse 
are the two oldest "Maltby twins" known to the compiler and are 
seventy-two years of age. 

From left to right, seated on the bench are Mr. George I'eecher 
]\Ialtby. Mary Maltl)y Higl)y. and Mr. John W'hitehouse Maltby. 
Standing are Mrs. George Beecher Maltby. wh«> kindly furnished 
the photograph and Mr. Albert T. Higby. This photograi)h was 
taken in the summer of 191 o. and we re^rret to record that shortly 
after Mr. John W'hitehouse ^Maltby's death occurred. 

It will be sad news to many of the Maltbys to learn that shortly 
after photograph of "the Afaltby Twins" was taken. Mr. John White- 
house Maltby began to fail rapidly in health. ( )n June i/th, 1911, 
he passed away at the home of his twin brother, Mr. George Beecher 
]^Ialtby. in -\urora. Indiana, a hardenin':^: of the arteries bein<^ t)m 
cause of his death. 

* ^Irs. Love took sreat in her Maltby ancestors anrl was in- 
defatig'able in her effort.'^ to obtain family records and old documents. Thi.s 
Avork is always a labor of love and in her time ^vas doubtless unappreciated 
anrl undervalued, but posterity can not fail to be grateful for the careful 
•work done by her, and must lionor her for her persistency in carrying on 
labors which met with little encouragement or response. 



]\Ir. ^laltby, accompanied by his son, made the sad journey 
east to the old home in Rochester, Xew Y^ork, and there on June 
20th, buried his brother beside his wife, who had died on Oct. 20th, 
1908, and whose loss had caused a breaking dow^n in health from 
which the bereaved husband never recovered. 

Air. George Beecher ]\Ialtby died April 22, 191 5. 


The following sketch was written by Miss Lynes : 

My great-grandfather, Jonathon Maltbie, 3d, was the only child 
of Jonathon, Jr., and Abigail Holmes Alaltbie ; born at Stamford, 
Conn., December 17, 1744. He removed to Fairfield, Conn., and mar- 
ried 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 
County" as "Colonial X^o. 4." This house was built in 1766 l)y 
Isaac Tucker, who sold it to Captain Maltbie. who owned and oc- 
cupied it during Revolutionary times, and was one of the few houses 
left standing at the burning of Fairfield. Mr. IIenr\" Rowland, a 
grandson, in writing some reminiscences, states that "grandfather 
Maltbic's (house) was reserved for a cook house. After the con- 
flagration the inhabitants returned ( when the British had gone 
aboard their ships). Grandfather Maltbie on returninf^ to his house 
found all their valuable china scoo]:)ed oft* the shelves on to the floor 
and broken into pieces and ever\thini^ upside dow n. In the kitchen 
ill the fireplace hung a large brass kettle filled with their hams, but 
they dare not eat them, fearing that they were poisoned (so they 
started anew with provisions)." 

Captain Maltbie's son, William, inherited this place and s(jld 
it to Justin Hobart. The house is still standing today in good con- 
dition. Jonathon Ylaltbie was ist Lieutenant of the "Trumbull," 
one of the first cruisers built for the Continental navy : Dudlev Sal- 
tonstall. Commander. She went into service about April. 1780, car- 
rying 28 guns and her crew numbered 200. Her first engagement 
under Captain X^icholson, occurred June 2nd of the same year, witli 
the "Watt." (Query: W^asp?") an English letter-of-marcjue, under 
Captain Colehart. She carried 34 guns and 250 men. The "Watt" 
was a private vessel with a carc^o of great value and was especially 
equipped to fight her way. This was the first action of any moment 
that occurred in 1 7'^o and liad the reputation of being the most 



obstinate and sanguinary naval battle during the Revolution. The 
"Trumbull," being badly disabled, failed to capture the "Watt," al- 
though she defeated her. 

The next summer, 1781, she left the Delaware, still under 
Captain Nicholson, having been thoroughly equipped as convoy to 
28 sail of merchant craft bound for Cape Francois, West Indies. 
Oil the capes, the "Trumbull" met three British cruisers astern. 
Two of them, one being a frigate, stood for the "Trumbull," which

ship, by hauling up gained the wind of them. While standing on in 
this manner, hoping everything from the darkenss which was fast 
approaching, a gale carried away the "Trumbull's" foretop 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," 32 guns, one of the vessels in 
chase, closed with her and forced her to combat. In the midst of 
rain and tempestuous winds. Captain Xicholson found himself 
obliged to go to quarters or to strike without resistance. He pre- 


ferrecl to do the first, but the English volunteers on board his ship, 
instead of obeying orders, went below, extinguished lights and 
secreted themselves. Near half the remaining men followed their 
example and Captain Nicholson could not muster fifty of even the 
diminished crew he had at the guns. The battle that followed 
might almost be said to have been fought by the officers. These 
brave men sustained by a party of petty officers and seamen man- 
aged a few of the guns for more than an hour, when the "General 
Monk," i8 guns, comins: up and joining in the fire of the "Iris," 
the "Trumbull" submitted. The "Trumbull," after her capture, was 
towed into New York harbor and condemned. Though unsuccess- 
ful in her battles, she still fought two of the most famous fights that 
took place on the ocean during the exciting times of the Revolution. 

Jonathon ^laltbv 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. nth, 1798, while in command 
of this vessel, and was buried in the old cemetery at Fairfield, Conn. 
The date of Jonathon Maltbie's commission as ist Lieutenant is 
Oct. 12th, 1776. Date of commission as Captain by George Wash- 
ington, Alarch 21 St, 1 791. 

Through the kindness of Mr. Frank Pentecost of Lawrence- 
ville, Georgia, we have received a copy of tlie commission of Jona- 
thon (4) Maltbie, signed by George Washington. .Mr. Pentecost 
tried to obtain a photograph of the document for us, l)ut the photo- 
graphers said it would be impossible as the type has become too in-

A few records obtained by the compiler are appended : 

In Dec, 1775, we find the following record: "Continental Fleet. 
in which were many Rhode Island officers, as well as from the other 
colonies, under command of Commodore Esek Hopkins of Provi- 
dence. Ship Alfred, one of the fleet. Dec. 1775. Capt. Dudley 
Saltonstall, ist Lieut. John Paul Jones. Among three other Lieu- 
tenants was Lieut. Jonathon Maltbie." ( Ref . Civil and ^Military List 
of Rhode Island, 1800-1850. by Smith, p. 704.) 

1776. His commission as lieutenant is dated October 12, 
1776, and signed by John Hancock. 

1778. Frigate "Trumbull." Capt. Dudley Saltonstall, was 
launched. Jonathon [Nlaltby, ist Lieutenant. Capt. J. Xicholson of 
Pa., afterwards, Capt. Saltonstall being transferred to the "Warren." 
''Trumbull" captured off the Delaware Cape by the British ships 
*'Iris" and "General Monk," after a gallant resistance of more than 
one hour, duriuf^ which she was completely dismantled and lost 
five killed and eleven wounded ( Ref. X'avy of the I'nited States, by 
Lieutenant Emmons, p. 3). 

1 79 1. Commission as Captain dated March 21, 1791. signed by 
Gen. George Washington. 

In Collections, Conn. Hist. Soc is a letter from Col. Gurdon 
Saltonstall, dated "Xew London, Jan. 2t,. lyy^^," to Silas Deane, 
Delegate to the ist and 2nd Congress at Philadelphia. It mentions 
''Second Lieut. Maltbie's crew." \'ol. II.. p. ^^^. 

Mr. John H. Beach of Bridgeport writes that several years 
ago Airs. Florence Isham Cross read a very interesting paper at a 
meeting of the Mary Silliman Chapter. D. A. R.. on Lieut. Jonathon 
[Maltbie. in which she describes him as "havino: red hair and a 
quick temper." It would be interestino^ to know how ]\Irs. Cross 
obtained this infomiation. whether from written documents or if 
perchance from a portrait which has been lost to the family. 



Zachens (5) ]\Ialtbie, whose photograph we show on this 
page, was born August 19th, 1774, and baptized September 18, 
1774, at Xorfolk Connecticut. 

He was the fifth child of Daniel (4) and ^Margaret Alunson 
^laltbie. [Daniel (3), Daniel (2), AMUiam (i).] 

According to the record given in an old family Bible, he mar- 
ried Reunah Burchard, April 5. 1797: she born May 22, 1777. Pos- 
sibly thev were married at Xew Marlborough, iMassachusetts, as 
Burchard seems to be the name of a resident family in this town. 



^liss Lucy Ann Morton writes that Reunah Burchard was the 
daughter of David and Mercy liurchard and that she had two 
brothers, Ezra and Amos Burchard. David Burchard's name ap- 
pears in the Xew Marlborough list, census of 1790 — ''7 in family. ' 

iMarch i, 1808, Amos Burchard of X^ew Marlborough, hatter, 
purchased land of Zacheus Maltby situated in Lee. Shortly after 
the marriage of Zacheus ]\laltbie to Reunah Burchard we find them 
at Lee. ^Nlass., where their first child. Ezra Burchard. was born, 
April I. 1798. Their second child, Mercy Burcliard, was born Feb. 
8, 1800. at Lee. ^lass. 


On :\Iarch i, 1802, Zacheus ^laltbie was appointed a fence 
viewer at Lee, and elected constable and collector in 1805 and 1806. 
November 30. 1807, the town appointed a committee to settle with 
him, and chose a collector to succeed him, from which it would 
apear he had left town about that time. In Alay, 1808, his "cattle 
mark" was recorded for another person. 

Daniel and Lester Maltbie do not seem to have been born at 
Lee. for their births are not recorded here. 

Aliss Lucy Ann Morton, whose mother was the ^Mercv Maltby 
born at Lee in 1800, remembers her g'randfather and L^randmother 


and says "they came overland from Lee, ]\Iass., to Groton City. 
X. Y., and had to clear the land to build as it was all wooded 
land at that time. [Mother ( Mercy Maltby ) was seven years old 
v.dien they came from ^Massachusetts." Consequently we may sup- 
pose the trip was undertaken the last of 1807 or early in 1808. 

Zacheus ^Maltbie settled at Summer Hill, Cayuga County, X. Y.. 
and built himself a house that was quite complete for those days. 
]Miss ^IcGeer tried to obtain a photograph of this old homestead 
but could not. consequently we must depend upon her description. 
''The house, of which only a part of the original, is still standing. 
Formerly there was quite a building in the rear but it has either 
blown or been torn down. It is one and a half stories high. 


"Some of the wall decorations are still to be seen: trees, birds 
and pictures painted un the walls." (All are painted not papered, 
vou understand. ) "Last summer the .c:reat big fireplace was boarded 
up. but 1 remember the old-fashioned brick oven, and wdiat was 
called a 'recess' built off the living room. My mother, :Margaret 
Ann Maltby was born here." 

Miss McGeer's father also remembers Zacheus :\Ialtby and 
says: "He was a hatter and used to trap for mink and muskrat 
which he made into fur hats by the old 'hand process' — people came 
from Auburn and other places to have him make their hats." 

Melville Barry Smith, prior to his death, wrote: "Grandfather 
Zacheus ^laltby w^as a hat maker. I can just remember his show- 
ing me some hats he took from a shelf and telling me he made 

Sylvester Daniel ]\Ialtbie w^rote : ''Father. Ezra R., served in 
the war of 1812 for grandfather Zacheus — father being only four- 
teen or fifteen when he enlisted.'' 

James AL Maltbie w-rote : ''Grandfather w-as know'n and called 
by nearly everybody 'L^ncle Zack.' I have forgotten his father's 
name. I have heard him say that his parents lived in or near Lee, 
]\Iass. He moved into this state when my father was very young, 
locating in the town of Groton, Tompkins Co.. but finally removing 
to Summer Hill. Cayuga Co.. where he died. He was a hatter bv 
trade, and my father worked with him. He used to hunt and trap 
for furs and was also a noted fisherman. He was a good sin'^i'er 
genial and a good story-teller, so the youn-^^ people all delighted to 
get L'ncle Zack to telling stories. He had six children. Ezra. Mercy, 
Daniel, Lester. Alanson and Margaret. 

"3kly father. Daniel, married Desire Howland and her sister. 
]\rary Howland, married a cousin of my father's. James Maltby and 
he had a brother, Seth ]Maltby. who resided in Syracuse and I 
think was a banker. He had two daughters. 

XoTE. — Allen. Seth, Bridsey and James Maltbie were children of Jehiel 
and Phoebe Maltbie and Jehiel was the oldest brother of Zacheus. conse- 
quently James and Seth were first cousins of Mr. James Maltbie's father, 
as stated. 

Mr. James R. Maltbie also writes: "Grandfather had a younger* 
brother named Daniel, who came into this state with him. He 
studied medicine for a wdiile but became ill and settled on a small 
farm in Groton and lived a hermit life there for forty years, Imt 
finally came to my father's and spent his last days with us. I think 
Seth Maltbie of Svracuse removed to Osweo:o before he died."

This interesting silhouette was very kindly sent us by Airs. 
J. A. Thompson of Owosso, Alichigan, a granddaughter of Jacob 
(5) Alaltby and his wife, Sally Keyes. Jacob Alaltby was born in 
1776, and married Sally Keyes January 3, 1803. He went from 
Xorfolk. Connecticut, anfl settled on the Western reserve near 
Unionville, Ohio, called "Xew Connecticut."* 

Airs. Tyler, a granddaughter, has furnished us with some in- 
formation concerning Sally Alaltby. She writes : "Grandmother 
was lame, a spare built, very prim person. She was a very fine 
needle woman and tauq-ht me to sew and knit. She was born in 
Ijtchfield, Connecticut. Aly grandparents came to Ohio some- 
t'me in 1820 or 1821. Aly grandfather, Jacob, was a very quaint 
old man. When I look back to my childhood days I see him in the 
play house he built for my sister and myself, playin^: with us. enter- 
ing into all our sports like a little one with us. Aly mother was 
bis idol and favorite daughter-in-law. Aly father's family were 
^ery proud and men of splendid habits. The old stock of Alaltbys. 
as far as I know, were men of the very best of habits." 

It is just such bits of personal data that we desire for our 
genealogy — little things which brino^ back more closely to us those 
Avho have gone.

Such items are difficult to obtain. Few of us could write 
much about our i^randparents if asked and as for great-grandparents, 
we should know nothing. 

We feel very grateful to Mrs. Tyler for bringing back to us a 
glimpse of the grandfather who delighted in giving happiness to 
his grandchildren, and the grandmother who taught the little fingers 
the art of fine sewing.

"Mr. Xorman Maltby, whose portrait we publish, was born 
on his father's farm near \ ernon Centre, Oneida County, New 
York, April 15, 1814; when he was about eighteen years of age 
it was recommended that he take a sea voyage on account of his 
health, so he went on a sailing vessel to England. During the 
voyage an incident occurred which he often related, the ship had 
been becalmed for several days, and on the day the first breeze 
came up he was standing on the deck with a companion who asked 
him, 'When did the Captain say we should reach land?' He re- 
pHed : 'In about six days.' A sailor standing near remarked: 'The 
ship may, but you will go over the side before that.' His com- 
panion, who was really a robust man but imagined he had every kind 
of disease, burst into tears and said. 'What will become of me, 1 
certainly will die before you do.' To which Mr. Maltby answered: 
'What does an old ignoramus of a sailor know about whether I 
shall live or die, I am going to England on this ship and not only 
that but I am going back to America.' The sailor looked him over 
and said : 'Well, when a man looks as you do, has that much grit 
and nerve it wouldn't surprise me if he did.' 

This spirit of never-give-up carried him through many trials 
in after life. 

On his return to America he went to Westmorland where he 
became a clerk in a general merchandise store ; one of the first 
instructions he had from his employer was 'Obey orders if you 
break owners,' and, 'If you sell anything that is to be charged, if 
the store is on fire make the charge, then save the books and any- 
thing else you can.' Later he went to A>rona and entered into 
partnership in the general merchandise business with William S. 
Armitage, under the firm name of ]\Ialtby and Armitas^e. In 1861 
he removed to Cleveland, X. Y., and from there in 1863 to Rome, 
X'. Y., where he, in connection with Samuel \\"ardwell organized 
the firm of Wardwell and Company, dealers in hardware, at 54 Dom- 
inick Street. In 1865 ^^^ went to Missouri in farming and sheep

raising in Henry county, in 1868 he removed to Sedalia, Mo., and 
engaged in mercantile l:)usiness, in which he continued until his 
death in 1876. While he was never a politician he was elected in 
1875 ^iayor of Sedalia. He was a States Rights Democrat, was 
opposed to the war, was a delegate to the peace convention at 
Charleston, was for many years a member of the Alethodist Church, 
but left it in 1863 ^^ ^""^ said 'He could hear all the politics and war 
talk he wanted to hear during the week, and did not want to hear 
it from the pulpit." He soon after became a member of the Epis- 
copal Church at Rome, and was vestryman and warden of the 
church at Sedalia, being senior warden at the time of his death. 
He was a conscientious Christian, a man noted for many sterling 
qualities of head and heart, and for his honesty and integrity.

The following article contributed by a descendant will 1)c found 
of interest to members of this branch of the famil\- : 



(''Evening Independent," Ashtabula. Ohio. August 24, 1910.) 

A notable event in the history of the Maltby family of Ashta- 
bula County and Saybrook, was the golden wedding celebrated 
yesterday, August 23, by the family and friends of Mr. and Mrs. 
Harrison Maltby. 

Mr. Maltby is one of the oldest well known residents of this 
section and is hale and hearty at eighty years of age. He married 
Miss Emily Hough of Rooktown, Ohio, who has been to him a 
helpmeet in the founding of a home remarkable for its ideals. 

Mr. Maltby, as were his ancestors before him, is a farmer. 
He is of that sturdy American stock which has wrested a living 
from the wilderness for as far back as one hundred years before 
the Revolution. He was born in a log cabin in 1830, at Southing- 




ton. Ohio, and knew well the hardships, the early settlers endured. 
In him are typified the Malthy characteristics of strong home love, 
honesty and firm religious principle. 

The is the second golden wedding in the House of ]\Ialtby. 
In 1868 under the same hospitable rooftree that sheltered yester- 
day's event, Mr. ]\Ialtby"s father. Deacon Daniel Maltby, and his 
wife, Esther Tapping, gathered about them a company of ninety 
to rejoice with them in attaining the fiftieth milestone in their 
married life. Everyone of the thirteen children were present and 
a host of grandchildren. Deacon Alaltby was one of the earliest 
pioneers of the Western Reserve, journeying with his wife to Ohio 
in an ox cart in 1820. from Xew York State. 

The occasion of his son's anniversary yesterday was most de- 
lightful in every way. At noon bounteous tables were spread in the 
orchard of the old homestead for the large company of sons, daugh- 
ters, grandchildren and friends and neighbors present. Rev. Collins 
of the Congregational church gave the invocation. At the close 
of the feast, the toastmaster, T. J. Osborne, presided over a short 
program. Telegrams and letters of congratulation from those un- 
able to be present were read. Some old familiar songs were sung. 
Toasts were responded to briefly by ]\Ir. H. A. Beckett, yirs. Clark 
Throope and Dr. AF. C. Scott, pastor of the M. E. church. Rev. 
\\\ E. Rix of \Msconsin, pronounced the benediction. 

In the evenins: fifty of the Saybrook friends and nei«2;hbors 
surprised Air. and Mrs. Maltb\- by walking in on them to further 
congratulate and wish them many happy returns of the day. They 
brought with them substantial refreshments which were served later 
in the evening:, and a token of regard in a gift of s^old pieces. Rev. 
Collins making the presentation speech. Mr. Maltby in a voice 
broken with emotion, responded. 

A'arious gifts in gold and other suitable presents had been re- 
ceived earlier in the day. 

Of the sons and daughters living there were present Mr. and 
Mrs. T. J. Osborne of Berea, Ky. ; ]\Ir. and ^Ivs. H. A. Beckett 
and Mr. and ]\Irs. L. C. Hinman of Lakewood. Ohio, and Miss Ruth 
?^Ialtby. Other out-of-town guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Clark 
Throope of Ashtabula, Rev. and Mrs. W. E. Rix of Lake Xebaga- 
mon. Wis., ]\Irs. Mary Beckett of Lakewood. 

Two sons, Albert Maltby of Hastin^js. Fla., and Benjamin

Dear Kindred and Friends : — 

I received, by kindness of ]\Irs. C. S. A^rrill, the first two 
numbers of the Alaltln- Booklet and found them verv interestino- 

My life has been so full of work and my held of labor so far 
away from my family and friends that I have had little time and 
opportunity to cultivate the acquaintance of even near relatives. 

It was with much hesitancy that I undertake, at the request 
of Airs. A'errill and my cousin, ]\Iiss Martha J. Maltby of Colum- 
bus, Ohio, to write a sketch of my life, for I have had verv little 
chance to develop the little literary gift I have. Still, with the hope 
that some account of niy past, on the great battlefield of life, may 
be of some interest to those of kindred blood, I send this manuscript. 

It is vacation time and sitting luider the pines at this beatitiful 
wooded mountain resort. I have written this review of a verv busy 
life of service. I am very glad I have had the privilege of laboring 
so many years for the girls of this young and progressive country 
of Bulgaria. 

Sincerely Y^ours in the bonds of Kindred, 

Esther Tapping ]\lALTr>iE. 
August, 1910. 


In a large farmhouse in Southington, in the state of Ohio, on 
the last day of April, 1836, a mother looked into the face of her 
eleventh child and a patriarchal father thanked God for another 
little girl to love and cherish. The mother did not shrink from the 
added burden of care and anxiety when with almost its first breath 
the little one showed signs of the whooping-cough, but courage- 
ously notirished the feeble life that many times seemed to have taken 
flight until the solicitous father saw his little Esther, the mother's 
namesake, a happy, joyous child upon his knee at morning and 
evening family devotions. 

Childhood glided swiftly by amid the innocent pleasures of a 
large group of wide-awake children and the busy scenes of farm- 
life. A lasting impression was made upon Esther's young mind 
when her father speaking to a family friend of her baby illness 




that so many times threatened the life of his favorite, turned and 
laying his hand upon her head, as she stood near him, said solemnly, 
"My dear child, God has not spared your life for nothing. He has 
a work for you to do." 

The parents resolved to give their large family of children 
all the educational advantages in their power, so the older ones, 
besides the district school, were sent to the Academy in an adjacent 
town. Dissatisfied with the superficial teaching of the ordinary 
district school, their oldest daughter was finally installed teacher 
of the young children. It was in this family school at the age of 
ten that Esther's mind received an impetus toward higher intellec- 
tual development and she entered with great zest into the study 
of mathematics and nature study. "Dick's Works," of wliich two 
great volumes were in her father's small library awakened much 
wonder and thought, especially his theory of the universe. 

Previously she had settled in her own mind her d(>ul)ts in 
reference to the existence of God from the effects produced 
by the invisible powers of nature. If matter could be invisible why 
not being unembodied ? At this time also her spiritual nature opened 
up to the Light of Truth and she began to realize the deep mean- 
ing of an endless life and turned to the Saviour of the world for 
forgiveness and strength. 

Before she had an opportunity to go away from home to school 
she did considerable reading. Himie's History of England was read 
before the family rose in the mornins:. "Plutarch's Lives" inter- 
ested her much and she devoured nearly all of the books in her 
father's library. 

She commenced the study of Greek and Latin in preparation 
for college under a French professor at the age of fifteen, when 
going away to school for the first time. Her class consisted of two 
young boys and herself. She will alwavs be grateful for the fatherl}' 
interest that old gentleman took in his class, whom he addressed 
as, "doctor, lawyer and professor." The boys fulfilled his predic- 
tion and the other life has been spent in teaching. 

AA'hen Esther consulted her father in reference to going to 
college, he replied, "If my daus^hter wishes to live for herself onlv, 
the less she knows the -better, for her influence will be less for evil : 
but if she desires to live for others, to help others, the more knowl- 
edge she acquires the better, for 'knowledge is power.' '" After six 
months of teaching: in a district school she entered the preparatorv 
department of Oberlin Colle^-e, Ohio, and commenced the hard 
struggle to obtain an education. To help defray her expenses she 


taught in the long vacations and graduated with four other girls 
from the Classical Course in 1862, which was an unpopular thing 
to do for at that time it was thought unnecessary for girls to study 
the Classics. During all the years of preparation an inward con- 
sciousness of the truth of her father's words abode with her ; whis- 
pering, "God has something for you to do," and the cry of the 
millions, sitting in darkness, for light echoed and re-echoed within 
her heart. 

During the Civil War she was a missionary of the American 
Missionary Association to the Freedmen in \^irginia and afterwards 
taught in W'ilberforce University, an institution for colored students, 
which was burned down on the evening of President Lincoln's 
assassination, April 14th, 1865. After this she taught for two years 
near her own home and lastly in Genesee, Illinois in the High 

Overcoming, by the grace of God, her reluctance to leaving 
parents, friends and home she made her second application to the 
American Board — the first was rejected because there was no money 
to send young ladies to the field. She met the secretary of the A. B. 
C. F. ]\r. in Chicago the last of May and sailed for Bulgaria in 
Turkey, the eighth day of September, 1870. Her father said, when 
she informed him of her purpose, *'\\^e hoped you would be the 
strong staff upon which your parents might lean in their old age; 
but we gave you to God in baptism and if He call you, go." The 
mother said. 'A^ou liave been m\- care until now; you will be too 
far away for my liel]) to reach you. I give you up to God. I shall 
never see your face again on earth, but you are Llis.'' Her last 
words when she bid her daup^hter farewell were, "At God's call go 
cheerfully." The daughter remembered how, often in childhood she 
had heard lier enjoin cheerful obedience on her children, for said 
she, "Obedience that is not cheerful is not obedience." 

For three years encouraging, cheering messages came to the 
exiled daughter from the mother, then six weeks of anxious waiting, 
then silence. Her last message was. "I am going Home, tell Etta, 
when she comes, to bring many sheaves with her." 

When the father bade his little daughter, as he fondly called 
her, "Good Bye," he said, "I think I shall see you again," and after 
six years he clasped her to his heart, and at the age of 82, he made 
long journeys with her visiting all his children in their distant 

It was a bright September day in the year 1870. that the good 
steamship sailed out of Xew York harbor with twenty missionaries 
on board. Fourteen days later the wide ocean had separated them

from the land of their fathers. A five hours" raih-oacl ride through 
'*Eden"-Hke England brought them to the wonderfully interesting 
old city of London and a week amid its interesting sights and 
scenes gave zest and refreshment to the weary travellers. Soon 
after arriving in Constantino] )lc the startling news came to the new 
missionarx- that Miss X(jrcross, witli whom she was to be asso- 
ciated, had suddenly sickened anrl died, that the school without a 
head was waiting for her to fill the vacancy. Words fail to express 
the disappointment of that hour. Good Dr. Riggs and Mrs. Riggs 
bv their sympathy helperl and encouraged the inexperienced mis- 
sionary to realize that the "Strength" of her life would not fail her. 

^Ir. Bond came from Bulgaria to accompany her to her field 
of labor. At that time Bulgaria was a country very little known 
and her subjected people almost unheard of. ]\Iuch in the beauti- 
fully situated city of Constantinople seemed strange and weird but 
on nearing her destination everything put on a new interest for 

A night on the choppy waves of the Black Sea brought the 
travelers to the port of Borgas in Bulgaria. A rude boat received 
the passengers and a dangerous climb up a ladder some twenty 
or thirty feet landed them on a platform filled with queer looking 
people, in dress and manner, who gazed at the foreigners as though 
they thought them arrivals from some other i)lanet. There is now 
a fine harbor in the place of that rude landing. 

The missionary was hastened through the crowd to the tehan. 
where a tlijorless room opened to them, furnitureless. except for a 
stool and a straw mat in a corner. The curious villagers not satis- 
fied with their inspection of the stranger on the street, filled the 
door and one ])aneless window with their eager faces. The first 
evening amid the jargon of a strange language and an almost sleep- 
less night upon the straw matting will not soon be efifaced from her 
memory. The morning found her seated in a springless, seatless 
wagon drawn by one horse. Mr. Bond rode upon his own horse 
and after a long day's ride, they came to a city where thev were 
to spenrl the night and there she met a mother with her bright- 
faced daughter who had been in the mission school and received 
from them a cordial welcome in an unknown tongue. This made 
the stranger feel at home and gave her a very favorable impression 
of the down-trodden and oppressed people whom she had come to 
teach. The evening of the third day they reached Eski Zaghra. the 
home of the mission school at that time. The missionarv carriage 
with the teachers of the school and girls on foot luet them outside 


the city and gave the new teacher a very cordial welcome and a 
Thanksgiving dinner awaited them in the missionary home — a touch 
of American life in the far off land. 

Before she was aware of it, Esther became fully absorbed in 
the work of the bereaved school and gradually, with the help of 
Miss Elenka H. Evonova, the Bulgarian teacher, who had acquired 
a good knowledge of English, was able to relieve the over- burdened 
missionaries of much of the care of the school. 

There were twenty-six or seven Bulgarian girls gathered in Dr. 
Haskell's house and the accommodations were exceeding v limited. 
The missionar}- teacher and the famly occupied the second tioor 
and the school-room and a dormitory were on the first small out- 
buildings in the }ard served for dining-room and kitchen while the 
cook and remaining girls slept in the dining room and over the 
horse stable, and the landlady who rented them, lived over the street 

Of course there was much sickness in the school and much 
of the new missionary's time was spent in the care of the sick. 
1 he pupils were mostly from the wealthiest and most intelligent 
families of the city. Bright and eager to learn. the\' made rapid 
progress. It was the first g}-mnasitun. or high school, for girls in 
Bulgaria though there then (in 1870) were some for boys. The 
small children of the more intelligent citizens were gathered in the 
cloisters of the churches and taught to read and write and a little 
science by the nuns and priests, but there were no schools for young 
girls and their time was spent in preparation for married life. 
Turkish officials of the city were present during the examinations 
and closing exercises of the school and expressed much surprise 
that girls could learn as well as boys, which fact was clearly shown 
by their examinations and compositions. It was not thought need- 
ful for girls to study mathematics and science as they were unneces- 
sary for housekeeping. 

The city of Eskizagora was one of the most advanced in the 
coimtry in civilization and intelligence, but it was not Ions: before 
the bigoted and fanatical priests raised bitter opposition to the school 
and incited the mob to stone the house, breaking windows and en- 
dangering life so that the missionaries were obliged to appeal to 
the Governor for protection. Some lovely Christian characters were 
developed during the first few years of this school. Six months 
after my arrival, the school was removed to Samokov, nearer the 
center of the missionary field. The people here were so ignorant 
and prejudicial against foreigners that not a Bulgarian would sell 


a huuse to the missionaries and they were obUged to buy of the 
1'urks next to the lUilgarian quarter, and then the Bulgarian 
neighbor sold to them because he would not live next to the de- 
spised foreigner, and as the next neighbor was of the same 
mind it was possible to get all the lots the Alission required. 
An addition to the missionary house was hastily built and a school- 
room and temporary meeting house for the first Evangelical church 
organized here in our field of missionary endeavor. Girls from 
I\Iacedonia and Bulgarian villages came to our school and gradually 
the numbers increased until a hundred and twent}" were enrolled in 
all departments. 

The school has passed through many vicissitudes and encoun- 
tered many difficulties during the thirty-eight years I have had the 
charge of it. Marvelous changes have taken place in this country 
during the short period of freedom from the Turkish yoke and 
now it has taken its place among the governments that must be 
reckoned with, even l^y the great powers of Europe. 

In place of the simple customs of Turkish times the cities, and 
some of the villages, have introduced European manners and dress 
and many of the modern improvements, steam and electric roads, 
automobiles, paved streets, modern hotels and many of the con- 
veniences of modern life are to be found here. This school has had 
its share in the development of the nation. 

The hundred and thirty-five or forty girls who have graduated 
from the school have had a wide infiuence as wives of prominent 
leading men. Those educated here are found in all grades of society 
and are leaders wherever found. Without doubt the thousand or 
more girls who have come imder the influence of this school have, 
during this formative |)eriod of Bulgarian history, exerted a health- 
ful influence, moral and religious. 

A retrospect of the forty years spent in this land endowed with 
so much of natural beauty and occupied by a pro-^ressive people, 
brings to mind experiences of intense interest. The friendships 
formed here are of no ordinary type. Miss Maltliie will alwavs be 
thankful that she was called to be a missionary teacher of the 
Gospel of Christ in this land of promise. 

XoTE.— -In 1908. the cares of the head of the 'School for Girls' (for this 
IS the name by which the school has been known since its removal to 
Samokov) was resigned by Miss Maltbie but she has retained a position as 
teacher in the school."— :\rartha I. ^Faltbv. 


A few weeks ago the secretary receive a letter from Miss 
Esther T. Aialtbie and it seems to us fitting that a few extracts 
should be given to the ^^laltby cousins. ]\Iiss ]\Ialtbie writes upon 
her return from a couple of tours : "Living has become very much 
more expensive, taxes exhorbitant and productiveness not increased 
to a great extent so there is much suffering and need. 

The "Holy Synod" is trying to get a law passed in the Na- 
tional Assembly to crush out Protestantism. One of the Articles is, 
that there can be no Evangelical service in any place where there 
are not seventy-five Protestant families and all the rest of the law 
in the same spirit. 

We have a ver\- full school and greatly need a new building. 
We have 112 pupils beside the kindergarten and we have not suit- 
able accommodations for half that number — 62 are boarders and 
the rest are day scholars. \A^ill not some of my relatives interest 
themselves in this good work and help us to stand firmly against 
this spirit of persecution. ... I hope we shall soon see another 
of the ]\Ialtby Booklets for they are very interesting. I am sur- 
prised that the money needed is not forthcoming. The next time 
I write I will send the membership money." etc. 

Samokov, December 7th. 19 to. 

To those of us who are interested in foreign missions, we would 
call attention tn Miss Maltby's request for aid. If one would know 
that one's contribution to such work went where it was greatly 
needed, here is an opportunity to help such a cause directly and to 
have the satisfaction of knowing just how the donation was spent. 

INIiss ^laltbie's work has not been unknown or una])preciated, 
as the following incidents show. ?^Iiss ^Martha J. Maltby writes: 
"This cousin, Esther, is a modest, self-retiring soul and her life 
has been spent for others. I wish I could write how great her in- 
fiuence has been through this school for girls in Bulgaria, but I am 
not equal to the task. There has been no 'trumpet blowing' about 
her work but it shows in the lives of her pupils. 

"At the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, in 1893, I met the 
Bulgarian who had charge of the exhibit of that country there and 
T gave him my card, saying, 'I've a cousin in your country.' Imme- 
diately he said, 'Miss Esther Alaltbie ! I know her. My wife was 
one of her pupils.' Later he said. '^Nliss Maltbie is known all over 
Bulgaria.' " 

Another letter, received last winter from John ]\Ialtbv Conk- 
ling, has the following item : "Last evening I listened to Miss Ellen 
yi. Stone tell her experiences with the Turkish bandits. She was 


an associate with Aunt Esther for a period in Samokov, Bulgaria, 
and in her lecture paid Aunt Esther a high tribute." 

Something in the way of a little sketch of the ancestry of 
]\Jiss Esther Maltbie will be interesting to the cousins, we believe, 
and consequentl}' give the following condensed notes : 

Esther Tapping Alaltbie is the daughter of Daniel (5) and 
Esther Tapping ]\Ialtbie. Daniel ]\Ialtbie went to Ohio in 18 19 with 
his father. Benjamin (4) Maltby (Rev. War). Benjamin (4^ 
^^laltbie was born May 11, 1750, in Xorthford. Connecticut, and 
married Abigail ]\Iunger. (Her ancestry was published in our 
fourth annual report). He was the son of Daniel (3) and ^lary 
Harrison Maltby, the grandson of Daniel (2) and Esther AIoss 

oMaltby and great-grandson of AA^illiam ( i) and Alaltby, the 

emigrant ancestor. 

A.s a large number of our members descend from Daniel (3) 
and Mary Harrison ^.laltby, we are printing her ancestry for their 

Mary Harrison was the daughter of X^athaniel and Thankful 
V\'ilkinson Harrison, granddaughter of Captain Xathaniel and 
Hannah Frisbie Harrison; great-ijranddaughter of Thomas Harri- 
son and his first wife, widow Ellen Thompson (widow of John 
Thompson). Her great, great-grandfather was Richard Harrison 
of West Kirby, Cheshire, England. He took the oath of alle':]:iance 
in Xew Haven, August 5, 1644. He removed to Branford and 
died there October 25, 1653. 

The Tapping ancestry we give also : — 

Esther Tapping (or Topping as the name originally a])pears) 
was the daughter of Silas and ]\Iary Gilbert Topping: and grand- 
daughter of Elnathan Topping:: great-granddaughter of Captain 
Stephen and second wife, Elizabeth (widow Matthews of East 
Hampton) Topping; great, great-granddaughter of Captain El- 
nathan and Mary Topping and great, great, great-grand- 
daughter of Captain Thomas Topping of Wethersfield. later of 
Alilford. Connecticut. His wife was Emma . 

The following Colonial record will be of interest to this l:)ranch 
of the family: "1673, ^lav T6th. The court accepts of the list of 
Troopers presented by Captain John Xash, and Captayn Thomas 
Topping: for X^'ew Haven Count v and doe confirm Captayn Topping 
to be Captavne and Mr. \\'illiam ^laltby to be Cornet of the sayd 
Troope.'' (Colonial Records of Connecticut, 1665 to 1667, p. T99 
]\I.S.S.: Vol. IT., p. 199, Printed Records.) 

In a letter dated August t, 1915. Miss ]\Iartha J. Maltbv in- 
forms me that owinc: to ill health ^liss Esther T. Maltbie returned 


to the States and is now living with her nephew, ^Ir. John ^Ialtb\- 
ConkHn. ]^Iiss Mahbv adds : "I have such an interesting account 
of the parting reception given her in Sophia. Bulgaria, when she 
left that country in 1912 which should go with her' biographv." 


Deacon William ^laltby of Xorthford, Conn., was the first 
child of Henry and Ruth Hart Mahby, and was born }^Iarch 19. 
1825. He married Esther Hall, daughter of Dr. Pierce and Esther 
(Hall) Hall of W'allingford. 

We give a short extract from a sketch of ^ir. Maltbv's life, 
which appeared in a local newspaper at the time of his death : 

'*In the death of Deacon William ^laltby the town loses one 
of its oldest and best citizens. In his younger davs he was a 
school teacher and taught school in Wallingford and other towns. 
Later, he settled on the farm. He represented his town in the state 
legislature in 1881. He was a member of the school board for 
thirty-five years, and for over forty years was a deacon in the Con- 
gregational Church." 

Deacon Maltby died ^lay 31, 1908, aged 83 years. He was a 
member of the [Maltby Association. He descended from Henry (5), 
James (4), Samuel (3), Samuel (2), William (i). 


Mr. George E. Maltby was the first President of the ^laltby 
Association, of which he was president when his death occurred 
July 31, 1909, at the age of 78 years. 

He was the second child of Lucius and Sarah J. f Parks) ^Maltby 
and was born February i8th, 1830, in Fair Haven (now a part 
of X'ew Haven ) Connecticut. As a boy, ^Ir. Maltby lived at home, 
§:oing to school and helping his father with the farm. Later he 
became clerk in Dr. Parker's drug store, being at the time eighteen 
years of age. 

Three years later ^Ir. Maltby went into the dru-^ business for 
himself. In May. 1852. he married Elizabeth Brouo:hton ^^lao^uire. 
They had two children, Edward Parks, and Marv Louise ^Maltbv. 
Shortly after the above children were born, the war broke out and 
]\Ir. ]\Ialtby disposed of his drug business and went South where 
for sometime he supplied General Grant's army with provisions. 


yir. ^laltby established an oyster business in Norfolk, Mrginia, 
and was the first to ship opened oysters in bulk to Xew York, for 
a long time averaging five hundred gallons a day. 

In 1864, ^^^- ^daltby lost his wife and for seven years was a 
widower. In 1871. he married Ruth Atwater Bostwick, and to 
them were born ^iargaret Atwater, George Erastus and Lucius 
Upson ]\Ialtby. 

In 1878, Mr. Maltl)}' and his famil}- left \'irginia and went to 
New A'ork to live, where the northern branch of the oyster business 
Vv^as supervised 1)\' him. Mrs. Maltby died in May. 1898, and soon 
after Mr. ^Maltby gave up active business and divided his time be- 
tween his older daughter, Mrs. Frederick S. Smith of Chester, 
Conn, and his younger daughter, 'Sirs. \Mlliam M. liernard of New 
York City, at whose residence he died, in Ardsley. X. Y. The 
interment was at Trinity Cemeter}'. New York. 

It will be a pleasure to the members of the [Maltby Associa- 
tion to know that Mr. Maltby was very proud of his office as our 
President, and at times during his last illness his near relatives 
called him "President," which seemed to please him. Many of us 
never had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Maltby personally, but it 
ir> a source of gratitude that we have his photograph and the fine 
character which was his cannot fail to endear his memorv to i-is, 
one and all. Mr. ^laltby's descent was Lucius (5), Rev. Jonathon^ 
(4), Benjamin (3), Daniel (2), \\'illiam (t). 


Mr. ]\Ialtb\- was born at South Rutland. New York. Juh' 19th, 
1836. He is a son of Rev. Sherman and 3^1 aria Thomas Maltby. 

In June, ^><^/. he gradtited from the State Normal School at 
Albany, New Y'ork. After graduation Sir. ^Maltby taught for one 
year in the Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute at Brooklyn. New^ 
York. In September, 1859, he married Miss Fannie E. Clark and 
settled in business at AYatertown. New York. He remained there 
for fifteen years, active in church work and served as Deacon, Clerk, 
Chorister and Treasurer. He also was interested in the Sunday 
school in which he taught and served as superintendent. 

At .length, in the winter of 1872, he gave ex]:)ression to a long 
felt desire to enter the ministry and the following vear began a 
three years' course of study in the Rochester Theological Seminary. 
After his graduation in 1877, ^^^ assumed the duties of the pastor- 




ate of the Baptist Church at ^Madison, \Msconsin, in response to a 
call which had been previously extended to him. 

In 1 88 1, he made a tour of Europe, visiting many important 
cities and places of interest. His relations with the church at ]\Iadi- 
son were very harmonious and when in 1883, he offered his resig- 
nation .it was not accepted, instead, the church offered to give him 
a year's leave of absence, but the substitute was not accepted by 

After spending a few months in California, he returned to the 
vicinity of Chicago, and afterward settled in Philadelphia, where 
during a successful pastorate, a new house of worship was erected. 

His next charge was at Paterson. Xew Jersey, where after 
seven years of service, a church building was completed and dedi- 
cated. His last pastorate was at Xewtown, Pennsylvania, where 
also a church building was erected. 

His aim has always been to build up, not to pull down, conse- 
quently he has many friends in the churches where he has served. 

]\Ir. ]\Ialtbv has written a number of sonars which have been 
appreciated by his friends. 

Xow. though no longer able to serve as pastor, he finds con- 
genial employment in visiting the sick of the city hospital and in 
doing good as he has opportunity ; and with the companion of his 
youth still spared to him, he looks back over the years that have 
fled and rejoices that his labors have not been in vain. 


Seth Waldo Maltbie. the youngest of thirteen children of 
Deacon Daniel and Esther { Tappin) ^laltbie, was born May 19th. 
1840. Southington. Trumbull County. Ohio. After attending the 
public schools he attended school in the preparatory department of 
Oberlin College in 1858. and entered that college in 1860. At the 
outbreak of the war he enlisted and was enrolled in the second 
company organized among the students of the college. The quota 
being more than full, his company was disbanded and he continued 
his studies through the collesre year when he entered the army as 
private in Co. D.. 87th Regiment, Ohio \'olunteer Infantry. He 
was appointed corporal and then sergeant in his company and the 
followins^ vcar he was commissioned captain of Co. E.. 4th Re'^t. 
U. S. C. T. 

At the close of the war he continued his college course at 
Amherst. ^Nlass.. and graduated in 18^7. Received the appoint- 


ment as disciplinarian of the military academy at Cheshire, Conn. 
The following year was superintendent of the public schools of 
Princeton, 111. Then for several years occupied a similar position 
in the public schools of Genesee, 111. Then was for two years prin- 
cipal of the Oshkosh High School, Oshkosh, \\'is. Health failing, 
moved to Tama County, Iowa, and engaged in the insurance busi- 
ness and taught a few terms in the public schools. Being informed 
in mining engineering he was sent to the mountains and employed 
by various mining companies and worked in Montana. Wyoming, 
Utah, California and Xew ^Mexico. For the past eight years he 
has been engaged in mining as local manager, where he and his 
wife still reside. 

He was married in 1867, to Rizpah Stetson Boltwood of Am- 
herst. Mass. They have had five children, Ralph Waldo, Edith 
r. ray ton, Gertrude, Guy South worth and Mildred Xoble. 

Ralph Waldo Maltbie was born July i, 1868, at Saybrook, 
Trumbull County, Ohio, educated in the public schools and Iowa 
College, Grennell. Iowa, began teaching in the public schools in 
Iowa ; went to Chicago and taught as principal of suburban schools 
for thirteen \ears. Health failing, he gave up teaching and en- 
gaged in railroading in various capacities, principally as clerk in the 
general offices. Went to California and began teaching in the 
public schools of Los Angeles, and is now principal of schools at 
Chatsworth, Cal. He married Xettie May Webster of Rarrington. 
111. They have two sons, Leonard and Robert. 

The third and fourth children of Seth Waldo and Rizpah 
Stetson (Boltwood) Maltbie named Gertrude and Guy Southworth, 
died in infancy. 

The fifth, Edith Brayton. born at Genesee. 111., Oct. 15th. 
1871. In her early childhood she was remarkable for early develop- 
ment of mental and moral qualities and showed wonderful talent in 
public elocutionary ability and while in the primary department on 
account of her age and in the high school in one or more studies 
she was chosen to represent the high school in the state oratorical 
contest and though only 8 years of age, she was marked third by 
the judges of the contest. The youngest of all the other contestants 
was twice her age. She took a course of study at Drake L'niversity, 
Des Aloines, Iowa. In Aug., 1891, she married the Rev. A. W. 
Davis and died Feby. 12th, 1894, leaving a son, Lloyd Shilton Davis, 
then sixteen months old. This boy is now 17 and has taken high 
standing in the public schools of Kansas City, ]\Io., where he now 


]\Iildred Xoble. the fifth child of Seth Waldo and Rizpah Stet- 
son (Boltwood) ]\Ialtbie, was born I\Iay 7th, 1891 at Montown, 
Tama County, Iowa. After thorough training in the public schools, 
Iowa College and normal studies she engaged in kindergarten work 
and taught in the public schools. She married in 1903, Joshua 
Baldwin Clarke. She has two children, Theodore William and 
Geraldine ]\Ialtby. The family reside at Gronegen, ]\Iinn. 


'Sir. George \\ . Alaltby was one of the original members of 
the Maltby Association, and his check for annual dues for ten mem- 
bers of his family was the first ray of light to encourage the little 
embryo into being. \Mien Mr. Maltby died on July ist, 1908, we 
lost one of our strongest supporters. 

The following obituary is taken from the "Bufifalo Evening 
News" of July i, 1908: 

Business AIax of Xatioxal Fame Passes Away 

George W. Maltby died this morning at his home in this city. 
"He was one of the old type of businessmen, with whom if you 
had a contract, you wouldn't need to put it in writing," was the re- 
mark evoked from a prominent business man by the announcement 
of the death of George \\\ Maltl)y at his home at 3 130 o'clock this 
morning. Among tlic tributes to his memory by legions of friends, 
no encomium will ring truer than this. But it is conceded l)y all 
who knew him that business honesty was only an incidental char- 
acteristic and one that was regarded as a matter of course by Mr. 
Maltby. That was the rough stone of his character — "Square-hewn 
and polished for a grand and sterilng character. . . . '' 

Mr. Maltby was born in West Henrietta, Monroe County. 
X. Y.. in 1845. ^^ hen not seventeen he enlisted as a private in 
Company H of the io8th Xew York \'olunteer Infantry and served 
with Gen. Winfield Scott at Antietam, Gettysburg: and Sp^>ttsylvania 
Court House 

He was all day on the battlefield of Antietam, "the bloodiest 
day of the whole war." and though wounded he stuck to his regi- 
ment. At Gettysburg he was hit by splinters of a shell, and in 
the death carnival at Spottsylvania, his left hand was so shattered 
by a bullet he could no longer carry a musket. This injury dis- 
abled him from active service and he was confined in the Satterlee 
Military Hospital at Philadelphia until his dischar^re in X'ovember, 
1864. For months he ministered with his one hand to his sick and 


dying comrades in the long wards of Satterlee Hospital, finally 
becoming head nurse. 

Returning from the army, 19 years old at this time. ]\Ir. Maltby 
decided to continue his studies, and took a course in a business 
college at Rochester. In 1865 he entered the firm of ^^'hitmore, 
Carson & Co., Rochester, dealers in cut stone. In 1880 Air. Alaltbv 
came to Buffalo, entering partnership with Gilbert Bradv of 
Rochester, under the name of Brady and Alaltby. The partnership 
was continued until the death of Mr. Brady in 1896. Mr. ]\Ialtbv 
was in business alone until 1904. when he took his two sons, James 
C. and William Maltby, into partnership, under the name of George 
W. Alaltln- and Sons. 

Memorials of Mr. Maltby's life work exist in monuments of 
cut stone all over the country. He furnished and dressed the stone 
for the McKinley Monument in X'iagara Square, also for the 
McKinley X'ational Memorial at Canton, including the interior work 
and sarcophagus; the Historical Society's Building: the Albright 
Art Gallery: the bridge over Park Lake, Gate's Circle: the entrance 
of Forest Lawn, the First Presbyterian Church, the new addition 
to the Buffalo Club and the C )ntario Power Company's building at 
Niagara Falls. 

^Ir. Maltby was a member of Bidwell-\\ ilkeson Post, G. A. R.,

IMaltby, Albert E. — Educator — born Oct. 2/, 1850. in Pulaski, 
X. Y. Received his education at Fayetteville Academy and at 
Cornell L'^niversity. As a teacher in L'ry School of Philadelphia 
and in 1878 he was appointed engineer on survey of boundary line 


between Guatemala and Mexico. In 1880 he filled chair of mathe- 
matics and astronomy in St. Lawrence University, N. Y. In 1884 
professor of natural science in the State normal school of Indiana, 
Penn. ; and since 1890 Dr. ]\Ialtby has been principal of State 
Normal School of Slippery Rock, Pa. He is a successful writer 
on the theoretical and practical in school methods." 

Mr. Albert E. Maltby descends from John (7), Timothy (6), 
Timothy (5), Samuel (4), Samuel (3), Samuel (2), William (i). 


George {/) Ellsworth Alaltby, Esquire, was born in Xew 
Haven, Connecticut, February ninth, eighteen fifty-two. He was 
the fourth child of George (6) Williams and Sarah Bogert Maltby. 

Those who knew him in childhood speak of him as "a beautiful 
child" — not only in looks but in character. The beautiful character 
of his childhood developed and strengthened with youth and man- 
hood, and all who ever came in contact with him, either in business 
or socially, must have been impressed by his upright, honorable 
life. WHien Right was on his side he was absolutely fearless and 
determined to stand firm, no matter what the consequences or what 
the powers used against him. 

He had many friends among the poor — for his charity was not 
the sort accompanied by loud proclamation, but done quietly and 
out of the sympathy he had for those less fortunate than himself. 

His education was obtained at the Public and Hifjh schools, 
and his standing was always high. 

His father ofi'ered him the opportunity to enter Yale L'niversity, 
but he decided for a business career and he very shortly entered 
the employ of H. \Y Benedict and Company, coal dealers, with 
whom he remained until he was about seventeen years of age. 
About this time Mr. Benedict's son, Mr. H. H. l]enedict, and Mr. 
Frank W. Pardee formed a partnership to handle coal entirely by 
wholesale and ]\Ir. ^laliby was asked to enter their office. This 
firm was very successful and soon became one of the leading 
wholesale coal establishments in Xew England. 

^\r. ]\Ialtby's advancement was rapid and while still twenty-one 
years of age he was taken into partnership and the firm name 
chano^ed to Benedict. Pardee and Company. 

His business aliility was of the best, and to those who knew 
him, knew the large thino^s accomplished by liim, and his success, 
any words of the writer would be superfluous. 


At the age of twenty Mr. ^Maltby married ]\Iiss Georgia Lord 
Morehouse, youngest daughter of Louis Peck and Harriett Brown 
]\Iorehouse, of Xew Haven, Connecticut. ]\Iiss ^lorehouse was 
just eighteen at the time of their marriage. They w^ere scarcely 
more than children, but it proved to be one of those fortunate 
marriages which one sees once in a lifetime. 

Mr.Maltby used frequently to tell his children that all that 
he was he owed to his wife — to her courage, love, devotion and 

^Ir. and Airs. Maltby had two children, .Maude Townshend, 
and Dorothy Lord, ]\Ialtby. 

Mr. Maltby was a strong supporter of the Calvary Baptist 
Church of Xew Haven and for years was chairman of the music 
committee, and during his office this church had the finest choir 
in the state. Air. Maltby contributed liberally toward the maintain- 
ing of this choir. He was intensely fond of music and had a fine 
natural baritone voice. 

Airs. Alaltby's voice was far above the ordinary singer's — with 
remarkal^le range and sweetness, and showxd thorough cultivation 
and training. 

Alany of the AIaltb\s were musical and we know that Air. 
Alaltby's great grandfather. Col. Stephen (4) Alaltby, had been 
quite prominent in a musical way. 

In appearance Air. Alaltby was a typical Alaltby. with dark 
brown hair, large brown eyes, set well apart and rather deep, heavy 
eyebrows, a firm mouth, with light brown moustache and a Alaltby 
dimple in his chin. His height was five feet ten, and he was quite 
muscular, though taking little exercise. 

He had a great love for athletics and was fund of keeping 
2:ood drivin;^ horses. 

He was social and genial, and a member of several clubs — the 
Ouinnipiac, the Republican League, and the Ansantawae : and also 
a member of the Chamber of Commerce. In politics he was a 
Republican, and had earnest convictions on such subjects. 

Air. Alaltby had a strong feeling of reverence for his ancestors 
and of kinship for his relations. 

In the last year of his life he used frequently to remark, "I 
should like to meet every one of my relatives and shake each one 
by the hand." 

Shortly before his death Air. and Airs. Alaltby spent much 
time and large sums of money tracing the Alaltby Genealogy. Airs. 
Alaltbv did the compiling and arranging of the material, and to- 
gether they travelled to old burying grounds, court houses, churches. 


etc., gathering the invaluable data, part of which is contained in 
the Alaltby-AIorehouse Family printed at ]\Ir. ]\Ialtby's expense 
and which he intended to give away. Mr. Alaltby also was em- 
ploying an English genealogist to work upon the connection with 
our English family. All this great work was cut short by his 
sudden death. 

The best blood of Xew England flowed in his veins — no better 
stock than that from which he came existed. The following are 
a few of the men from whom he descended on the paternal side 
of the family-: 

Deputy Governor George Bartlett, of Connecticut. 

Governor \\'illiam Brenton. of Rhode Island. 

Rev. John Davenport, founder of Xew Haven. 

Rev. John Eliot, "Apostle to the Indians." 

Rev. Joseph Eliot, Guilford, Conn. 

Hon. ]*^Iaior Xathan Gold. 

Hon. John Hall. 

Rev. Samuel Hall, Patriot. 

Governor Jonathan Law, of Connecticut, 

Rev. John Lowthrop, Scituate, Mass. 

Rev. Richard ?\ lather. 

Rev. Eleazer ]\Iather. 

Rev. Abraham Pierson. 

Elder John Strong. 

Thomas Townshend, Esq. 

Rev. John Williams, the Redeemed Captive. 

Rev. Stephen Williams, the Redeemed Cai)tivc. 

Rev. A\'arham V\'illiams. 

On the niaternal side Mr. Maltln's ancestry was entirely Dutch 
and French Huguenot. I le was eligible to practically all the patri- 
otic societies, and in response to an invitation to join the Colonial 
Wars his papers had been made out and were to be handerl in 
the day he died. 

yiv. Alalt1)y had. always been stron-z and vigorous, l)ut while 
on a pleasure trip to Annapolis. Maryland, where he had ijone 
accompanied by his family to attend some of the festivities at th.e 
Xaval Academy, he was taken with a supposedly slight attack of 
influenza. After a couple of days in l)ed he was sufficiently re- 
covered to go on to A\'ashington, D. C, where it was planned to 
spend a few days before returnincr J,o X'ew Haven. There, after a 
pleasant evening spent with his family and friends he was stricken 
with heart failure and died almost instantlv. 


His death occurred January 28th, 1895, at the ArHngton Hotel, 
Washington. D. C. when he was but forty-two years of a^-e. 

^Ir. AIahb\- was a 32nd degree Mason, belonging to the Xew 
Haven Commandery. No. 2, K. T.. Xew Haven, Conn.: to Pyramid 
Temple, A. A. A. X. M. S.. Bridgeport, Conn., and La Fayette 
Sov. Consistory, S. P. R. S., Bridgeport, Conn. 

The above sketch of a useful and beautiful life is written in 
loving memory by his daughter. Dorothv Maltbv A>rrill. 


Rev. Maltbie Davenpurt Babcock, D. D., was born at Syracuse, 
X. Y., August 3d, 1858. He was the eldest son of Henry Babcock 
and Emily Maria Maltbie. Her father was the Rev. Ebenezer 
Davenport ]\Ialtbie, son of David Maltbie and his wife X^ancy 
Davenport of Stamford, Conn., who was the lineal descendant of 
Rev. John Davenport of Xew Haven, Conn. Emily ]^Iaria ]\Ialtbie's 
mother was Mar\- Ann Davis, daus^hter of Rev. Henrv Davis, D. D.. 
and Hannah Phoenix Tredwell. 

There were many generations of the most prominent, refined 
and cultivated men and women behind Dr. Babcock and he went 
forth to his life work from an ideal home. His maternal great 
grandfather and his grandfather were both Presbyterian clergymen. 
He was the eldest of seven children, and his mother's widespread 
religious induence. and her beautiful life still speak in many of 
the influential circles of his native city. Here he was educated, 
taking his classical course at Syracuse L'niversity, and his theo- 
logical course at Auburn Seminary. In both of these institutions 
he won highest honors and hosts of friends. 

Dr. Babcock received immediate recognition in the front rank 
of his denomination, his first settlement being at Lockport, X'. \'. 
It was not only his brilliant intellect and his stirring oratorical 
powers that commanded admiration, for his ministr\- 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 cheerful was 
he always and so thoroughly unselfish. His influence became In 
the best sense national. His theology was like his vocal delivery, 
simple and direct. It was one soul speaking to another. His 
pravers voiced the cry of a man who wanted help from his Father. 

Dr. Babcock could not do anything just as anyone else would. 
'"To divide burdens and centralize responsibility is the ark of ac- 
complishment." This was his rule in doing his varied work, and 


it gave him his ahiiost 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 wandering soul to Christ. Often men 
said, "Let us get him under Dr. Babcock's influence; he can surely 
reach him." Dr. Babcock was a very versatile man ; exceedingly 
attractive in phvsique, pleasant in manner, with a soul that reflected 

Dr. Babcock 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 his country. He reached the 
people in so many ways. His personal magnetism was marvelous. 
Those who heard him were entranced and he was called to speak 
at all great religious gatherings, from one end of the country to 
the other and crowds, young and old, hung upon his lips. Taught 
of the Spirit, he revealed to them the open door to heaven and the 
message of the Jehovah. 

Dr. Babcock never published a book. He lived or sang his 
thoughts. He was a great lover of music, played many instru- 
ments extremely well, improvised delightfully and also wrote many 
songs and hymns which have been published and have 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 
resemble those of Emerson. They have been published in connec- 
tion with a memorial volume of extracts from sermons and addresses 
o'athered 1)v his 2:rief stricken widow, entitled "Thoughts for Everv 
Dav Living." His foreign letters, written while last abroad, to the 
men of the Brick Church in \c\v ^'(.rk City, were also published. 

W'liat Dr. Babcock's work was in Baltimore it is simplv im- 
possible to estimate in an article as brief as this or to speak of the 
breadth and reach of that wonderful pastorate in Xew Y'ork. His 
acquaintance was cosmopolitan, and it knew no denominational 
bond, and was met by a distins^uished hospitality to which liis wife, 
the daughter of a prominent Poughkeepsie lawyer, added both 
beauty and charm. What Dr. Babcock was in his home onlv those 
who lived with him and loved him, upon whom his devotion was 
showered can tell. At the time of his death, at Xaples. Ttalv, ^Mav 
t8, 1901, in his forty-third year, the papers, both relicrious and 
secular, teemed with statements proving: in every way his remark- 
able power. 


One who knew Dr. Babcock intimately said : "The onh- relief 
in the mystery of his untimely death it seemed to me. was in tlie 
fact that his character and work were of such potency that they 
must reproduce themselves in the living. 


(President of the ^laltby Association.) 

Mr. Frank B. Maltby. the second president of the IMaltby 
Association, was graduated from the Universitv of Illinois in 1882. 
and in 1907 was given an honorary degree. After matriculating, 
Mr. Maltby followed the engineering profession and lias been con- 
nected with railroad construction and work under the government 
on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. From 1902 to 1905. ^Mr. 
^vlaltljy was in charge of all dredging operations on the Mississippi 
River below Cairo and at this time had under his direction the 
largest dredge plant in the world. 

In 1905 Mr. Maltb}" went to Panama as a dred^ins; expert in 
charge of all dredging operations and was afterwards made Divi- 
sion Engineer and then Principal Assistant Eno^ineer inider Mr. 
Jno. F. Stevens. Chief Engineer of the Isthmian Canal Commission. 

\\Tiile in the service of the canal commission. Mr. ]\Ialtby de- 
signed and built the dredges now in use in constructing the canal. 
This plant cost about a million and a half dollars. 

Mr. Maltby's work also included the construction of wharves 
and docks and beginning the construction of the 2:reat Gatnn lock 
and dam. He also built a cold storage plant, laundry and a bakery 
on the Isthmus. 

After the canal construction was turned over to the army 
ensrineers Mr. Maltbv resig^ned and was chief eno-ineer for the firm 
of Dodge and Day of Philadelphia. 

In 1908, Dodge and Day had the contract for the erection of 
the largest cableway plant in the world for handlino: material at 
Gatun. Later I\Ir. ^Maltby became associated with James Stewart 
& Company of Xew Y^ork. general contractors. At this time ^Ir. 
]Maltby was in charge of a larg^e contract on the Xew York State 
bars^e canal, as well as of work in Buffalo and Lorain, Ohio. In 
191 1, yir. ^laltby became a partner with a firm of Contractors and 
Engineers in X'ew Y'ork Citv. Galwens and Dodo:e. 

The latest work of ^Ir. ^laltby's has been the Cape Cod Canal, 
recently finished. As a hydraulic engineer and an expert on all 


classes of dredging operations, Mr. ]\Ialtby has niade a name for 
himself of which he well might be proud, bnt being of a most 
retiring disposition, it remains for his kinsmen to feel a just satis- 
faction in the place he has made for himself in the highest ranks 
of his profession. 

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

1. William ]^Ialtby m. (ist or 2nd wife?). 

2. Daniel ]\Ialtby m. Esther ^loss. 

3. Daniel Maltby m. ]\Iary Harrison. 

4. Benjamin Maltby (R.\\'.) m. Abigail ]\Iunger.

It is a pleasure to be able to publish the photograph of ]\Ir. 
Birdsey L. Maltbie, to whom we are indebted for this book. Had 
il not been for Mr. Maltbie's great generosity in privately financing 
the publication of these records, they would have been unavailable 
to the public and doubtless would ultimately have become lost to 

The expense of publishing such a l)o<jk is great and we can 
best express our gratitude and appreciation of Mr. Maltbie's kind- 
ness by showing our copies to any relations who have not yet sub- 
scribed for one. 

1 1 must be understood that under the best of conditions as to 
the sale of the book, etc., there is not one cent of pecuniary gain 
for ]\Ir. Maltbie, as a result of his philanthropy. He generoush" 
declares that should he more than cover the cost of the book, any 
surplus will go to the comjiiler as a mark of appreciation of the 
work of years. This would be very nice, but it should be thoroughly 
understood by purchasers that neither Mr. Maltbie or Mrs. \'erriU 
went into the editing or publishins: with the faintest idea of deriving 
any personal benefit from their efforts. If the Maltbv descendants 
find the book of interest to such an extent that Mr. B. L. Maltbie 




may feel no regret for his kindness, then indeed may all those con- 
cerned feel well satisfied and amply repaid. 

Mr. B. L. Maltbie was born at Cattarangus, X. Y., September 
19th, 1864. At an early age he began his life's work in a drug 
store, was graduated from the Albany College of Pharmacy, class 
of 1885, with highest honors (he was elected president of the Col- 
lege Alumni in 1915J. Tn t888 he started in the drug business in 
a small way, for himself, and later in partnership with his brother, 
Ralph H. ]\Ialtbie. started in the manufacture of pharmaceutical 
preparations, which business was later incorporated as The Maltbie 
Chemical Company, and which is now a thriving organization with 
laboratories in Xewark, X. J. 

]\Ir. IMaltbie is the author of "]\Ialtbie's Practical Pharmacy" 
and editor of several other publications. In 191 5 he was elected 
president of The American Association of Pharmaceutical Chemists. 

He was married in 1897 ^o Emma D. Bancroft in Bufifalo. X'ew 
Y'ork. They have one daughter, Harriet B. ]\Ialtbie. They reside 
in East Orange, X". J., except during the winter wliich time is spent 
at Altamonte Springs, Florida, where they have a winter home." 


Some years ago a correspondent wrote of Miss Margaret E. 
^laltby, ''she is the only woman professor at Columbia University." 
If this is still the case is not known to the compiler, but that Miss 
]^Ialtby is a very brilliant woman, exceedin2:ly clever and a fascinat- 
ing conversationalist is well known to those who have been so for- 
tunate as to make her acquaintance. The followins: are a list of de- 
grees conferred uj^jn her: Oberlin, Ohio, A.B. (1882): A.M. 
(1891J ; ^lass. Institute of Technology, S.B. O891) : Gottincjer 
University (Germany) Ph.D. ( 1895). Miss Maltby has held the 
following fellowships: Foreign Scholarshio (or Fellowship) from 
Mass. Institute of Technology, two years while at Gottin^^er. '93-'95. 
The foreign fellowship of the Association of Collegiate Alumni, 


Miss Maltliy is a fellow of the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science and was private research assistant to 
President Kohlbrausch of the Physikalisch Technische Reich- 
saustalt, '98-'99. 

In 1 899- 1 900 Miss Maltby studied at Clark I'niversity with 
Professor Webster: for four vears and a half she tauirht at Welles- 


ley College; one year at Lake Erie College and eight years at 

In 1909 ]\Iiss ^Nlaltby was Adjunct Professor in charge of the 
Department of Physics of Barnard University which post she held 
since the summer of 1903. She is a first cousin of ^Iv. Frank B.

Recentlv we have discovered a branch of the Maltb\- family 
spelling their name ^lolby. This branch we believe should connect 
with parent tree at Jonathon Maltby (4), born Oct. 21. 1751, and 
said by Rev. Jonathon (4) to have married a ]\Iiss Culver, and 
went to Lenox, ]\Iass. From here he probably went up to \'ermont, 
as Culver was a prominent name in A'ermont in Revolutionary Days. 
As yet this descent has not been proved. \\'hat records we have 
of this family begin with one Jonathon Maltby who went from 
Salem, ]^Iass., in 1800, to Xew Y^ork State. Xow it is tradition 
that he was from Salem, and tradition is evidently wrong as the 
Town Clerk assures us the name Maltby is not on the records. 

Jonathon Maltby had the following children: Chester ]\Iolby, 
b. Dec. 8. 1788: Jacob Maltby: \Villiam Maltby. went west when 
young, perhaps to ^Michigan: Isaac ^lolby, went west when young. 

Chester Molby m. Sally Wigent : they named their children 
Samuel, John. Benjamin, Susanna, Harriet, Polly, Lydia. Loanna, 
Jane and Daniel. 

Jacob ]\laltby, brother of Chester, named his children William, 
?vIinor, Henry, John and Lucy. Further records of this branch 



The lists of Maltbys-Maltbies, who have served their countrv 
in the various wars our country has been involved in since its in- 
fancy should prove of interest to all Maltbys. 

These records are far from complete but they have been col- 
lected wherever possible and it is the hope of the compiler that 
they will act as an impetus to kinsmen to send in further data con- 
cerning those ]\Ialtbys they may know of who in like manner served 
their country. 

These lists would be far more fragmentary were it not for 
the kindness of Miss Achsah Adelia Maltby of Seattle who very 
kindly copied all printed lists obtainable there at the librarv. 

The first list contains the names of Maltbys who held military 
rank, but owing to age, were not available for any actual war, 
some being born too late or too soon or having died prior to the 
outbreak of war.

Capt. BEXJAAiiX Maltbie (3), Daniel (2). Wm. (i). There 
is only one record to show that Benjamin Maltby had the title of 
'"Captain." It is doubtful if he went to "the front," as he was about 
60 years of aQ:e at the time of the Revolution, but doubtless was 
captain of a company for "home defense." The record is from 
the X'orihford Church records, page 127 and reads: "Apr. 2, 1778.

Baldwin to be their Deacons who accepted this office.* Test. W^ar-

XoTE. — The Societ}^ of the Children of the American Revolution have 
a chapter named for this patriot, called "The Thaddeiis ]\Ialtby Society." 
It was organized in St. Paul, ]\Iinn., ]\Iarch, 1896, by Mrs. Ferederick E. 
Foster, a descendant of Gen. Isaac (4). brother of Thaddeus (4) Maltby. 
In an address Mrs. Foster give a brief sketch of this young Revolutionary 
Ware hero, who gave his life for his country, and from this we quote. ''He 
enlisted at the breaking out of the war. being then but eighteen years of 
age. For gallant conduct he was soon made Corporal of his company. He 
lived to see some victories, but unused to the hardship and privations he 
fell fatally ill from exposure at Ticonderoga and was sent home to die. Of 
his brothers, one was a student at Yale." [Jonathon (4)] ''another was in 
the army" (Query: Was this Benjamin?) "and of the youngest none was 
large enough to undertake to bring home the dying soldier. A young cousin* 
was therefore sent for him" (Who was this ''cousin"?) "and from the 
Xorthern Army to Xorthford. Connecticut, the long journey was performed 
slowly and painfully, both boys riding the same horse. Thaddeus leaning 
forward on his cousin's shoulders for support. Exhausted and spent he 
reached the pleasant home from which he had departed but a few months 
before strong and brave, dying shortly after his return and leaving no de- 
scendants to tell of his heroic sacrifice. This brief story of a short life was 
learned from a bundle of old family letters and the facts since verified from 
printed records in the State Library." Elizabeth Fowler Maltby. mother of 
Thaddeus said when she lost her baby she thought it terrible but when a 
grown up son died in the army "the loss of the baby was nothing in

These records of Alaltbys who served in the Revolutionarv War 
may be far from complete, as the author has no reference library 
to consult. At the same time we find that practically all the Maltbvs 
of a suitable age to serve their country did so upon the break with 
England. [Meanwhile, their English cousins were serving their 
country and a list of British officers serving in America will be 
found in the X. E. H. & Gen. Reg., about the year 1907. This 
list contains the names of several ]\Ialtbys. (See below.)

The descendants of Benjamin and Elizabeth Fowler Maltby 
will be interested to know that this ancestor was an officer in the 
Revolutionary War. thoufjh 60 years of age at the outbreak of 
hostilities. The Rev. Mr. Gillette said in his Branford address: 
"The people of X'orth and South societies fXorthford and Old 
Branford) entered with ardor into the war of the Revolution, and 
furnished a full quota of men by voluntary enlistment, both for 
land and sea service. Benjamin Maltby was Captain of trained 
band." He resided near his older brother Daniel (3), ''both of them 
commanded trained bands, as then called, whence his title of Capt." 


(Ref. Statement of his son. Rev. Jonathan (4) ]\Ialtby ) as Capt. 
Daniel (^) Maltby did not die till late in October, 1776, it is pos- 
sible that descendants would be eligible through him to anv Revo- 
lutionary War society. 

The Xorthford Church Records, p. 127, has the following: 
"Apr. 2, 1778. This church makes choice of Capt. Benjamin 
Tvlaltbie and Phineas Baldwin to be their Deacons who accepted 
their office. Test. Warham Williams, Pastor." 

Further proof that this Capt. Benjamin is none other than the 
one claimed is found in a Bond owned bv Mrs. F. E. Foster, in 
which "Benjamin ^^laltby. Junr., Jonathan ]\Ialtby, Isaac Maltby 
and Stephen Alaltljy. promise to pay their Honoured ^lother Eliza- 
beth Maltby the sum of Twenty pounds lawfull ^loney within one 
year from the decease of our Honoured Father, Capt. Benjamin 
Maltby, in case she survive him," etc. "Dated Branford 20 dav 
Febru'y, 1792." 

This Bond, with many other valuable papers, was carefully 
preserved by Martha Church Maltby, daughter of General Isaac 
Maltby, ( v. v. ) and it is to her that we owe the very complete 
records now existing of this branch of the family. There are no 
words of praise too high for the work she accomplished, and against 
the difficulties which frequently beset the path of the genealogist.

Lying secure amidst the isles. 
And rocky headlands of the Sound. 
Was a wild tract with harbor near, 
More deep and wide than bays around. 

Held by a race wild as this tract. 
It caught the eye of pioneers 
Seeking a place where merchandise 
]^Iight be transported without fears. 

The harbor with its smiling grace. 
The Stony Creek, the Thimble Isles, 
All made a picture to enchant. 
And lure one with its magic wiles. 


Totoket, had the place been called. 
Before our fathers changed the name 
To Branford, for the English town 
Of Brentford, whence some doubtless came. 

For seventy dollars this bold site, 

In 1638 was bought 

By forty men, and soon became 

Noted for shipping craft there wrought. 

In that remote ancestral day 
A rugged race in Branford stood. 
Held fast by creeds and rules severe. 
Yet laboring for the general good. 

Whoever called the town his home. 
Must all the rigid laws obey. 
Attend the church, yea, keep awake. 
Or heavy fine was his to pay. 

A ^^'hipping Post stood on the hill. 
To frighten children of the flock 
Who naughty were, and Curfew bade 
Folk in their bed by ten o'clock. 

In center of the town the Green 
Was situate with rocky spires. 
And round about were houses built 
For Sabl)ath use. with open fires. 

Where families gathered at mid-day 
To lunch and rest — but dare we think 
Our ancestors were frail as we. 
\Mio love to gossip, eat and drink? 

'Twas here, in 1700. dwelt 
The one whose birth we celebrate, 
A man the Public Records show 
Identified with Church and State. 

Here. too. he died, and here would we. 
A loving tribute ,i2:ladly pay 
To William Maltby. honored sire 
Of our sfreat familv this dav. 


From homes so widely separate, 
We cannot often here return 
To solemnize on sacred ground, 
The ancestral fires that now we burn. 

Y^et may we hold fast to the faith 
Our fathers held in Church and State, 
And write their inscription on our shields — 
"A'irtue increases under weight." 

And then some glad Reunion day, 
In Land that knows no pain nor sin. 
Meet, a united family, 
^^'ith sainted liost of Maltby kin. 

(Written for the First Reunion of the Maltbv Familv at Branford.) 


In Part 1. we gave several pen pictures of Maltby, Yorkshire, 
the home of some of the English Maltbys and it seems fitting that 
a short acct)unt of the home of our emigrant ancestor should also 
have a place in this work. 

We can hardly do better than quote from an essav written bv 
Miss Olive Hall Pond of Branford, as it gives a verv compre- 
hensive idea of the Branford our early ancestors knew. 

"Branford was purchased from the Indians in the year 1638 
for the sum of ^^70, and settled six years late ( 1644) 1)y fortv men 
and their families, who came from Wethersfield. . . . 

"At first the chief occupation was farming but the people 
soon found that 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 ^^'est Indies. Consequently, merchandise from foreign 
ports was brought to Branford and was then carried over the hills 
to X'^ew Haven, which at that time did not have a good harbor. 

"Trading necessitated the building of ships. A'essels suit- 
able to transport merchandise to all parts of the world were built 
where the swimming pool at ]^Iill Plains is now located. . . . 

"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 stood 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 pro- 
tection from hostile Indians. 

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

"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 Xew Haven through the town of Branford to Guilford. 
IMontowese 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 ]\Iontowese 
street, east to the river, somewhat similar to Averill avenue. This 
was called 'Pig Lane.' 

"The first postoffice. with public store combined, stood on the 
site of the Lock works. This hollow formed the principal business 
section of Branford. 

"The kindergarten, grammar and high school combined, con- 
sisted of one building, the academy, which now stands, the only 
remaining relic of former days. 

"It is most amusing to notice some of the customs and re- 
strictions 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 during the service and pre- 
vent 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 coming all the way from Xorthford, 
regularly attended with his wife and 26 children. 

* Tlie first wife of WiUiam ^^altby was probably buried near thi.«? 
first meeting house. 


"Another law of special 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 lo o'clock. 

Additional items of interest pertaining to Branford and the 
]\Ialtbys will be found in the following article which is copied 
from a ^Is. sent by Mrs. John P. Cushman and is here given 
verbatim : 


"As Branford may be considered our family home I copy quite 
an extended account of its early history (see also ]\Iass. Hist. Coll., 
Vol. 6, p. 319) from the semi-centennial discourse (Alorehouse 
and Taylor, Pub.j of Rev. Timothy P. Gillett (pastor of the 
church) preached July 7, 1858. 'The tract of land, which for 
almost two centuries constituted the town of Branford, was pur- 
chased of the town of Xew Haven in the year 1644. by colonists 
or immigrants from Wethersfield with William Swain at their 
head. The settlers in Xew Haven had purchased it of the Indian 
Sachems in 1638. (Sept. i, 1640 ) Totoket. or Branford, was 
granted to Rev. Samuel Eaton, brother of Theophilus Eaton, Gov. 
of X'ew Haven Colony, provided he obtained a sufficient number 
of his friends to settle it. He went to England for that purpose, 
but was persuaded to remain and preach at Durbenfield and Stock- 
port, in England. As he failed of fulfilling his engagement, Bran- 
ford was sold to W'm. Swain and others of Wethersfield. Totoket, 
the original name, seems to have been given by the Aborigines, 
tc. a range of mountains running through the northern part of the 
town, and from them applied to the whole tract. Its present name 
is said to have been derived from Brentford or Burntford. a village 
in England, near London.' (Author's note: "Brentford, ]^Iiddle- 
sex, their friends distinguished themselves on the side of Parlia- 
ment there in 1642.") 

Trobably some of the first settlers came from that place, who, 
after residing temporarily in other places finally fixed their resi- 
dence here. It does not appear that there were among them any 
persons of great wealth, or superior rank. But they were men 
of strict Puritan principles,— men of stern integrity and zealous 
for religious liberty, so far as its principles were then understood. 
The doctrines of their creed were Calvanistic. or those which were 
embodied shortlv after, in the Cambridge and \\'estminster Con- 


fession of Faith. In church poHcy they were Congregationalists. 
In common with other colonists of tliat age, they acted on the 
scheme of carrying the gospel and its ordinances, education and 
its advantages, with them, and having the church, the minister and 
the school, coeval with their settlement. . . . There are no rec- 
ords known to exist showing when a church was organized here, 
hut as early as October, 1644, the salary of Mr. John Sherman 
as a preacher began, and the records show he was remaining here 
in 1646, though probably not as a settled minister. (See Barber's 
Hist. Coll. for further notice of ]\Ir. Sherman.) 

The first regular pastor was Abraham Pierson, whose name 
appears on the town records in 1647. He was born in Y^orkshire, . 
Eng., graduated at Cambridge in 1632, preached some years in 
his own country, came to Xew England in 1639. joined the church 
in Boston, soon moved to Lynn, and the next year settled in 
Southampton, L. I., probably in 1641. In 1647 ^^^ removed to 
Branford, and was pastor of the church here about twenty years. 
The union of Xew Haven Colony with that of Connecticut so dis- 
pleased ]\Ir. Pierson, that he, with many of his people, left Branford 
about June, 1667, and settled in Xewark. X. J., where he died 
xAug. 9, 1678. He probably carried away the church records, and 
they are supposed to be lost. The town records were not removed. 
Branford was without an organized church and settled minister 
for about twenty years." (Author's note: The descendants of 
Col. Stephen ]\Ialtby (4) have the above Rev. Abraham Pierson 
for an ancestor, through his dau2:hter Abigail, who married John 

"The first church edifice was erected within the old burying 
ground, and tradition says it was enclosed by a stockade to protect 
its worshippers from the Indians. Four others have succeeded it, 
built where the present house now stands. The centre burying 
ground was the only one in town, for about eighty years after 
its settlement. There lie the remains of all the pastors and their 
wives, except Mr. Pierson, and there sleep the first settlers with 
many of their descendants. . . . 

"Formerly the shipping business and the West India trade 
from Branford were greater than from Xew Haven. The harbor 
here was better and safer. The Dutch, sagacious and enterprising, 
had discovered this long before Daniel" (Compiler's query. Wil- 
liam?) "Swain, of Wethersfield, and his company bought Totoket. 
They had also established a trading house here, and opened a lucra- 
tive trafiic with the Indians. Their location is still known as Dutch 
House Point and Dutch House Quarter. But the people of Bran- 


ford met with great reverses, in the old French wars. Their 
ships were captured or lost, their spirit of enterprise broken, and 
the improvements made in Xew Haven harbor removed the ship- 
ping business to that place. 

"There is no record or tradition that the Branford Indians 
made war on our people, or offered any violence to them. Their 
lands were bought and paid for, besides the price paid to Xew 
Haven for the township, and the town passed laws protecting them 
in all their rights, and prohibiting individuals from ptirchasing their 
reservations, lest fraud should be practised."

In February, 1906, a few ]\Ialtby descendants formed a ]\Ialtby 
Association, and as it was not intended to confine it to any par- 
ticular country, but to truly make it a ]\Ialtby Association of 
iMaltbys wherever found, there was only one rule adopted as to 
eligibility, namely that the applicant must descend from a Maltby ; 
the one exception being that widows of Maltbys should be entitled 
to join providing it was distinctly stated on all membership rolls 
that they "represented their husband." 

In order that no cousin should be deterred from joining owing 
to prohibitive dues, these were made as low as possible, and the 
purely nominal sum of $1.00 a year for each member is asked. 
The fact that the dues are so low makes it absolutely necessary 
for the success of the Association that descendants will do all in 
tlieir power to interest other Maltbys and be as prompt as possible 
in tlie ])ayment of dues. It must be thoroughly understood that 
all money received from members is applied to work on the par- 
ticular branch of the family from which they descend — to try and 
establish a more complete line of descent. 

In the case of the American Maltbys the money paid by them 
is used for various purposes : some being — the care and restoration 


of our early ancestors' tombstones; the photographing of ancient 
Mahby tombstones, portraits, homesteads and heirlooms ; the copy- 
ing of old wills, inventories, family letters and documents of special 
interest, — these being fees to Town Clerks — the search of early 
records to prove the connection with our emigrant ancestors to 
some heretofore unplaced Maltby family; and also to cover the 
regular running expenses, such as stamps, stationery, letter heads, 
printed receipt cards for dues, etc. ; these in themselves making 
quite an item. And last, but perhaps most important of all, when 
we can get sufficient surplus to cover current expenses, we have 
employed ^Nlr. Gerald Fothergill, the eminent genealogist, of Lon- 
don, England, to work upon establishing the link with our 
English ancestors. In this work we were materially aided by con- 
tributions from individuals, twenty-four members contributing sums 
ranging from fifty cents to five dollars, giving a total of $51.50. 
That this money was well invested and that Mr. Fothergill more 
than gave us full value, must be evident to all those who have 
read Part I of this book. 

Mr. Fothergill visited Y'ork in July, 1910, and read all the 
wills 'round Retford for about fifteen years — no matter what the 
testator's name, in the hope of getting a mention of ^laltby, luit 
only obtained one. This used one ten pound note. The second 
ten pounds he used in going around Retford. He personally saw 
the record of William Maltby's baptism — "t6 ^larch 1644-45." 'Mr. 
Fothergill wrote: "This corresponds with the age on his tomb. 
1 also found the baptism of Robert ^Maltby in 1647. I hope you will 
be pleased with this evidence. I had to visit Retford and Spring- 
thorpe twice as the \^icar had gone away and had the keys with 
him. I suspect John" (i. e., brother of \Villiam the emigrant) ''to 
have been born at Bawtry. The Bawtry registers ought to be 
searched as well as Kexbie." 

There is every reason to believe that our ancestry is established 
back to John :\raltby of Kexby Hall. Kexby, who made his will 
in 1557, but this should not satisfy us, and it seems such a very 
short step from here to a connection with an old English pedigree, 
such a one as Pedigree Xo. H — also such a descent would give us 
a rio-ht to use a coat-of-arms, and certainlv there is a just satis- 
faction in knowing that one is entitled to coat-armour, long smce 
justly won by some ancestor. 

We need money to carry on this work, £10 ($50.00) is about 
the smallest sum one can send, and if some of the members who 
have not already contributed to this good work would care to assist 
in subscribino; to this fund it would be greatly appreciated. 


The Association has another object to accomplish, namelv to 
promote a feehng of good-will and kinship to all of our kind 
wherever found, and to further this end it was planned to hold 
a Family Reunion at least once every five years. The first reunion 
was held at Branford in September, 1910 (see account which fol- 
lows), and this year of 191 5 should find a second reunion planned, 
l)ut owing to an unfortunate chain of circumstances it was not 
deemed practicable this year. 

The 3klaltby Association have expected to publish annually 
tlie reports of the secretary and treasurer, and to date we have 
issued four publications, viz. : in 1907, a short report, afterwards 
included in Booklet I. issued in 1908 through the courtesy of 
Mr. Jay Hayes ]\Ialtby of Forman, Xorth Dakota. In February, 
1909, Mr. Jay H. Maltby. at his own expense, issued Booklet II, 
a volume oi 150 pages ver\' nicely got up, the sale of wdiich we 
understand just covered the actual cost of the illustrations and 
printing. In February, 19 10, the Fourth Annual Report of the 
Secretary and Treasurer was published and sent, gratis, to all 
members. The autumn following the First Reunion was held which 
stimulated an interest in the Association, many new members joined, 
and all seemed anxious to procure copies of the next Maltby book 
which was promised for the spring of 191 1. The Secretary ful- 
filled her contract and had the MS. ready the last of February. 
The book was to have been ])rinted at private expense by a ?^Ialtby 
who expected to cover the costs from the sale of the publication. 
Then came the hitch — it is too long a story and far too unfortunate 
an incident to go into at length. The printing stopped, all com- 
munication ceased, it was impossible to obtain the manuscript ; 
meanwhile members wrote asking when they would receive their 
books ; as time wore on the interest taken in the Association began 
to lag, dues did not come in and the Secretary, who had labored 
untiringly since the founding of our little clan, saw the work of 
years undone, and only the few dying embers left of what had 
been a well l)uilt house. 

However, before the last spark was extinguished, one to whom 
we are greatly indebted, saw that the manuscript reached us, and 
Fate was indeed kind, when she led -Mr. Birdsey- L. Maltbie to 
make his fine ofi"er to print our book at his own expense, trusting 
to the Maltby descendants' interest in such a production to sub- 
scribe sufticientlv to cover the very high costs of producing: such 
a book. We earnestly request all those owning: copies to tell their 
relations of the book, as onlv in this way can Mr. Maltbie be 
reimbursed for the great expense to which he has been put. The 


entire book of nearly nine hundred pages has been rewritten, re- 
vised and added to by the secretary in the last few months. There 
is room for much improvement as to literar}- style, arrangement 
and so forth, but it has been work done as a "rush order" and 
with all the imperfections it must seek its own place among you. 
We hope it will be a successful venture, for if so we shall hope 
later to publish the large ^laltby Genealogy upon which the geneal- 
ogist has worked for years, and which will include a very com- 
plete record of the descendants of the emigrant ancestors, John 
and William Maltby. Again we urge all those who have not 
alread}- done so. to send in as full a record as possible of their 
own family as far as known, also old portraits of ancestors, giving 
when possible military and official records, names of universities 
attended, full dates of births, marriages and deaths — in fact any 
items of particular interest in your family and which you should 
like to have preserved to posterity, so that when you receive a 
printed copy you will feel satisfied with the accounts given and 
find the book says "just what I wanted said." 

As the present book is intended for a permanent publication, 
much of a personal nature was cut out. and all that was stable 
in our previous publications was included in order that descendants 
might have the complete printed records in one substantial book. 

The list of members which completes this book is made from 

the last roll taken, and we sincerely hope that all will remain 

with us for many years, giving us courage to work on, by their 
help and co-operation. 

It may interest the ^laltby descendants of William Maltby 
to know that the head of our house of Maltby is Mr. Charles 
Eli -Alaltby. This is the oldest son of an oldest son to have male 
issue and his line is: William (i), Daniel (2), the third son. but 
oldest having male issue: Capt. Joseph (3). Joseph (4), Rev. 
Joseph (5), :\Iilo (6), Chauncy (7). Charles EU (8), and his 
oldest son is Chauncy H. (9) ^lahby, b. July 29, 1886. 

The last report of the Treasurer, Feb. i, 191 1. follow^s. On 
this date we had but S33.28 in the bank. Few dues have been 
received since, and the expenses of stationery and stamps has 
gone steadily on so that at the present there is practically no 
money in the treasury. It is intended to issue notices of dues twice 
a year, on January first and July first, and we trust that all the 
old members will respond as promptly as possible as we are sadl\' 
in need of funds.

From the Treasurer's report it will be seen that ninety-nine 
members only paid dues while our membership roll shows a list of 
one hundred and forty-five names. Subtracting the eight honorary 
memberships of ^Iv. Jay Hayes Maltby and his family, the dues 
of Miss Esther Tapping Maltby. which she speaks of sending; 
$1.00 enclosed by a member which was lost in the mail, and two 
members' names who joined after February first, (consequently 
their dues are not included in the year of 1910). we find a total 


of twelve. This twelve added to ninety-nine paid memberships 
accounts for one hundred and eleven members. Consequently there 
remain thirty-four members who have not as yet sent in their 

We make an especial appeal to the members and ask that 
they will try and pay their dues as promptly as convenient after 
receiving their notifications from the Treasurer. This will save 
the Treasurer and Secretary a vast amount of time and trouble 
and also expense. The dues are so small that out of the dollar 
paid by each member we make not more than eighty or ninety 
cents profit during the .year, as the postage used for each member 
during: the vear costs the Association at least ten or twentv cents. 

We also wish to notify members that a formal note of resigna- 
tion will be required if one wishes to resign. Also, where dues 
are not paid within one year, the member's name will be crossed 
oft the books and will not appear in the membership roll till all 
dues are paid. 

We hope all the members will endeavor to assist the Treasurer 
and Secretary in the work they are doing for the Association by 
acquiescing in the above request. 

The thirty-four dollars due, with what we have received from 
private sources, would enable us to continue the English research 
which now is at a standstill, owing to the ver\' small surplus in 
the Treasury. 

It has not previously been stated that all the offtcers of the 
Association pay their annual dues as well as the members, but this 
fact should, we think, be known. Every cent paid in to the 
Treasurer is spent in furthering the general good of our large 
family, and we trust that all may feel satisfied with the work

The first ^laltby Family Reunion was held at Branford and 
Indian Xeck, Connecticut, on September first. 1910 — exactly two 
hundred years from the date of death of our ancestor, William 
Maltby, Esq. 

Those attending assembled at the X"ew Haven Public Library 
wearing a knot of red and gold, the ]\Ialtby colors, as a badge 
of identification. These were improved upon by buttons which 
were soon passed to all. having the ]\Ialtby coat-of-arms done in 
heraldic colors — the generous gift of Mr. W'ilburt S. ^laltby of 
Plainfield. Xew Jersey. At quarter to eleven an open trolley was 
taken for the hour's ride to Branford, and alas, in a downpour 
of rain. The company went direct to the ]\Iontowese House at 
Indian X'eck. where our ancestor owned much land, and held an 
informal meeting opened by Rev. Clark O. ]\Ialtby, which included 
the recitation of poems, written for the occasion ; addresses, letters 
from absent members, and the singing of appropriate songs. An 
enjoyable luncheon was served at two o'clock. The place cards 
were the gift of Mrs. Lee Parker Dean and her son Mr. Henry 
Dean. The latter engraved the plate and Mrs. Dean personally 
met all expenses connected with getting the cards out, then 
they were colored by hand by ^Ivs. Brown of Toledo, Ohio. Mrs. 
Hubbell, and ]\Iiss Marion Davenport Maltbie, to all of whom 
the Association is most grateful. 

A nicely bound volume was provided for all descendants and 
guests to register in, and at the close of luncheon the group photo- 
graph which appears on the opposite page was taken. The rain 
having nearly ceased the party took a car to Branford, where 
the cemetery was visited and two handsome sprays of roses pro- 
vided by the Association were placed upon the graves of W^illiam 
iMaltby, and on that of his wife Abigail. Mrs. Cushman. a descend- 
ant of this third wife, Abigail Bishop, laid the white roses upon 
her grave, and Rev. Clark O. Maltby placed a lovely spray of 
red roses upon the grave of W'illiani Maltby. speaking a few 
words of dedication. From the cemetery the little companv visited 
the Town Hall, examininc^ the old original documents in the hand- 
writing of our emigrant ancestor. 

Thus the eventful day drew to a close. We cannot but ap- 
preciate the loyalty of those who were prompted to do honor to 
the day despite the inclement weather. Fortv-one people were 


expected and forty-one came, although some of these had not 
signed cards and some of those who had did not come. Had it 
been pleasant the Reunion would surely have numbered over fifty. 

Of the forty-one present, thirty-four were of ]\Ialtby blood. 
of the tangible results of t\ 
thirteen new members to our roll. 

One of the tangible results of the Reunion was the addition of

XoTE. — From the above list it will be seen that our members are scat- 
tered from Maine to California, residing in twenty-five different states, 
namely : California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida. Illinois. Indiana, Kan- 
sas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland. Michigan. Minnesota, Mis- 
souri, Xew Jersey, Xew York, Xew Mexico, Xorth Dakota. Oklahoma. Ohio, 
Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota. Washington and Wisconsin. In 
Canada four provinces are represented. British Columbia. Xew Brunswick, 
Xova Scotia and Quebec, while we have one member in Bulgaria and an- 
other in England. 

It will also be seen that our members are of the sixth, seventh, eighth 
and ninth generations. I do not think there is now living any Maltby of the 
fifth generation, and those of our members of the ninth generation are 
children, but there are living Maltby of the tenth and even the eleventh
