The following pages are the printed records and results of 
}^^ears of painstaking and conscientious work on the part of the 
author and genealogist, Mrs. 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 Mrs. Verrill without hope of 
compensation and at great expense of time, money and vital 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 this time. 

Too much credit cannot be given to Mrs. Verrill by the mem- 
bers of the Maltby family and readers of this book for her untiring 
efforts to bring to a successful completion the records contained 
herein and. 

In behalf of the Maltby family the undersigned wishes to ex- 
press to Mrs. Verrill his heart-felt appreciation of these years of 
labor which, though it has been a labor of love, has been none the 
less arduous. 

We also wish to express our appreciation of the generosity and 
kindness of Mr. R. 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 Airs. 
^'erril^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 going over the proof sheets those things I have 
done, and those left undone, seem very patent. But "what 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 
under 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 I 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 
Maltbys 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 

Rolls of 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 V. 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, pedigrees 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 right to bear arms. It will be noticed that many 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 Malebis in 1097. The extract is taken 
from "The Genealogist," New Series. 1896, p. 281. The Parliamen- 
tary Roll of Arms : 

T097. SIRE JOHN MALEBIS-^de argent a iij testes de bis 
de goul (Vide Yorkshire Parish Reg. Vol I and II). 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 
Malebisse, see Pedigree No. I. 

The next mention of Maltby arms seems to be in 1339. In the 
Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. XT, pp. 686-7 will be found the fol- 


lowing: "As the combinations out of which the early coats were 
formed were limited; 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 Alaltby 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 Militaris) sat in 1339 to enquire into a mandate dated 18 
Jan., 1339, against Harmon Beckwith by Hugh Lord Maltby, who 
alleged that Beckwith had assumed his arms. Beckwith proved his 
right to the satisfaction of the court 14 Oct., 1339." (See Pedigree 
No. I for Hugh Maltby and Harmon Beckwith). 

It was not, however, chance that caused Harmon Beckwith to 
adopt the Maltby arms. His great grandfather was Sir Hercules 
Malebisse (Latin form of Maltby) 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 Nicholas, and it was 
Harmon, the son of this Nicholas who had the dispute with Hugh 
Maltby. If one will consult Pedigree No. I it will be seen that 
William (9) de Malebisse, 1339. died in 1365, and here, with his 
son. Sir Thomas (10), 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 very probable, indeed practically certain, that the above 
Hugh Maltby was nearly related to William (9), probably his uncle. 
It is rather an odd coincidence that Elizabeth (11) Maltby, daughter 
and co-heiress of Sir Thomas (10) Maltby married for her second 
husband, Adam Beckwith of Clint, a great-grandson of Harmon 
Beckwith. who had the dispute concerning the Maltby arms. It 
must be borne in mind in the following pages that the Beckwiths 
are by birth Maltbys 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. Motto: Joie en bien." * 

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

* Note the similarity with the arms of Sire Jolm Malebis in 1097. It 
is very probable that he was an older brother of Hug-o (1), Pedigree No. I. 
and failing- male issue his coat of arms was used bv the descendants of 
Hugo (1). 


Another item from Burke's Gen. Arm is: Alalbys : 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 No. I it will be seen that Margaret 
Maltby (9) sister of William de Malebisse, married Thomas Fairfax. 
This will explain the following records : 

FAIRFAX (p. 39, Glover's \'ist. of Yorks., 161 2. edited by 
Joseph Foster) of Walton and Gilling; one quartering is given as 
Arg. a chev. between 3 foxes' heads erased gules, for Alalbys. 

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 Malbys. 

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 Alaltby. 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: Mall)ys : Gules a chev. betw. 3 hinds' heads, 
erased arg., for Malbech, Malbcsh, Malbish. 

Maltby and Molzbi, Malbie, Malbysse. Vide Doomsday Book. Burke's 
Gen. .\rm. states: "The Beckwith family of Yorkshire is a very 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: Malbech, Malbesh or 
Malbish : 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 York Cathedral in a side aisle of the 
north part of the transept are these arms : Azure a chevron engrailed 
with 3 hinds' heads, erased or. Malbyss. (Vide p. 532. "F.bor.") 

Since writing the above notes an item provin^.^- the theorv of 
the Beckwitli arms being hereditary from those of vSir John Male- 

* See unfler date IfiOS. 


bisse, has come to light. The Genealogist, 1888-89. ^'ol \, has this 
item: "There is a dead in Betham's Baronetage (Vol. 11, app. p. 607^ 
proving the right of Harmon Beckwith, Esq., to the coat armour 
of John Lord Malebisse" (1339). 

From the above notes it is quite clearly shown that the oldest 
Maltby 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 Alaltby arms is in 1373. 'Tntroduc- 
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 Alawteby, 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 MS. should 
grace her tomb. 

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

Further impalements are : Mawteby impaled with gules, a fesse 
and six martlets or., for Beauchamp, Lord of Powilse. Mawteby 
impaled with gules, billety or and a fess argent for Loveyn (\"ide. 
"The Ancestor," No. 10, pp. 87-9.) 

The arms of the family of Mautby [Norfolk] are given in sev- 
eral places in Bloomfield's Hist, of Norfolk as : Azure, a cross or. 
But in Vol. VHI, p. 407 of Bloomfield they are stated to be : azure, 
a cross formee or. ; and this is the description given in the A-'isitation 
of Norfolk. The latter is probably the correct description. '(Mde. 
Bloomfield's, Norfolk, Vol. X, pp. 69-70; Vol. VI, p. 494; Vol. XI, 
p. 182 ; Vol. VII, p. 467 ; Visitation of Norfolk. Edit, by Walter Rye, 
pp. 64-214). Following are given various records pertaining to the 
Norfolk branch of the family: (See also Pedigree No. IV.) 

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

Mautby (Co. Norfolk, 1373) Az. a cross or. 

Malby (Norfolk) Az. a cross formee. coupe, or. (Vide Berry Encylop. 
Heraldic, and also Burke.) 

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

Burke gives arms of Mautebey and ^lawedby as .\zure. a cross or. 


Bloomlield, Vol. VIII., states that " the arms of Paston Alautby, 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 New- 
ton Chapel, Bristol Cathedral, is a large escutcheon of 24 quarterings. No. 
24 being Azure a cross pattee throughout or. Maultby. 

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 Bloomlield we find : "In the Church of Bacton appear on 
the steeple window the arms of Paston and Mautby;" (p. 21.) and, "Mautby 
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 Mautby, az. a cross or." (p. 182.) 
In Vol VI. we find the following: "The family house of Paston was in 
Manor Oxmead, Norfolk." 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 lozengy or.] 
Arms of Mautby impaling Beauchamp [gu. a fess betw. 6 martlets or.] 
Arms of Mautby impaling Clifton [Chequer or. and gu., a bend ermine.] (p. 


In the Church of St. Nicholas. Oxnead, a Paston coat-of-arms is to be 
seen (1597) the 6th quartering being: Azure a cross or. for Mautby (p. 494.) 

In Vol. VI. we find: "In the Church of the Virgin or St. Margaret at 
Calthorpe. Norfolk, in the upper window of the north side appeared with 
inter . . . the arms of Alautby." (p. 521.) 

The arms which follow are quite different from the above and 
proba1)ly belong to a cadet branch of the Norfolk family: 

MAWBEY (Mawtby) Co. Norfolk. Or. a cross gules fretty of the field be- 
tween four eagles displayed azure, each charged on the breast with a 

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

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

fretty of the field. Same as above. 

Fairbairn's Book of Crests gives: "Mawby and ^Mawbrey of Kemming- 
ton, Surrey, an eagle displayed azure, charged on the breast with a bezant." 
Also. :Ma\vbey. 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 Bridsh Herald or Cabinet of Armorial Bearings of the Nobility 
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: 
:\Ialby [Norfolk] 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 No. IV.. Joseph (21). and the arms granted in 1765 were 


probably to his son Joseph {22). For the lineage of JMaubey of Botleys, 
Surrey, consult Burke's English and Dormant Baronetcies. For the union 
of Paston with Alaulbv or Mawtby 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 Maltby arms to be considered are those of the Maltbys 
of Cleveland, York. (See Pedigree No. II). The first date found 
by the compiler connected with these arms is in 1599 and is in The 
Genealogist, Vol. XXL, p. 120 (Add M.S. 12,225). It reads: Grant 
of Arms. Alaltby ... of Maltby in Cleveland, Co. York. Patent 
by Sir W. Segar, Garter (NForry in 1599). Arms: x\rgent, 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 No. II it will be seen that 
Christopher Maltby (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 Nicholas Alalby was using 
the wheat sheaves on his arms (with cotises introduced for a differ- 
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. 372. 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. 
lianded 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 liarley sheaf erect and banded or. Pendant therefrom a bugle horn or. 

Note.— This is the crest used by the Maltbys descended from Christopher 
Maltby of North Allerton. (Sec Pedigree XIV.) The bugle horn is for a 
Penny cuick marriage.''" 

* Siiii-i> tlio alimc wa.'i written we havo i-eceived a copv of the Orant of 
.Arms lo Tlionia.^ IVraltl.y of Xorthallcrton. (See Pedigree XIV.) The bugle 
horn i.s from the Foxton family and not the Pennycuicks. 


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

MALBY (Sir Nicholas, 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 only 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 
Morgain of Gainsborough : "Morice Morgan m. Elizabeth, dau. of William 
I'orman of Gainsborough, yeoman, sister of Sir William Forman, the Lord 
Mayor of London, 1538. 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 : Alalby or :\Ialtby : 
Argent on a bend gules, three garbs or. Malby : the same arms. Crest : z-\n 
Indian goat passant or. Maltby (]Maltby, Cleveland, Yorks.) : Argent on 
a 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 Urargeria 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 Will'mus Bes- 
wicke, de, London, alderman, als' dictus Berwick;" he m. Joanna, soror 
Hen. Harte de Newenham, Co. Cantiji. 

Burke's Gen. Armorv gives (Edit. 1884): IMaltby [Edward. Bishop of 
Chichester, 1831, and Durham, 1836-18561 : 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: Alaltby, late Rt. Rev. Edward, D.D., 
Bishop of Durham, between two branches of olive proper a garb or. charged 
with a cross pattee gules. Nin sine labore. (For grant of arms, see under 
article on Bishop Edward Maltby. 

The arms g-enerally used in the present day by the ]\Talthys 
are the sheaves of wheat on a bend s:ules. This is the coat-of-arms 
used by the Maltby Association*. The motto used is: "Virtus sub 
pondere crescit." The General Isaac (4) Maltby descendants used 

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


"Quod serveus metes." Mr. Brough Maltby 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 coat-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 Montreal Maltbys, descended from the Maltbys of Leeds, York, 
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 Col. R. L. Maltby's 
family (descended from the Maltbys of Scarborough) is very in- 
teresting. Roughly speaking the arms are quarterly or. and argent. 
The crest is a Wyren, 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 Maltby 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 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, over all a bend sab. (or a bendlet) ." 

As a matter of fact the JMaltbys owning these arms never heard 
of any Clavering marriage and it would seem very probable that 
John Maltby, born at Scarborough in 171 2, descended from Sir John 
Mawtby, Knt., who mar. Elizabeth (or Isabel?) dau. of Robert 
Clavering, son of Roger, Lord of Clavering, 9 Edward II. (1326). 
See Pedigree No. IV-A. Paston-Maltby. 

The following record from the Visitations of Norfolk, 1 563-1613, 
give: "Sir John Mautby 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 Maltby 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 verv probable that there was originally a color blazoned 
on the shield.

In the British Musevnn there is an Index to the Pedigrees and 
Arms contained in the "Heralds Visitations and Other Gen. Mans.," 
edited by R. Sims. Those marked with a star will be found at the 
end of these heraldry notes ; the ones unmarked have never been

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

* Since writina' these notes on tlie 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 
HI we find Robert Mauteby giving: to St. Mary of Sibton Triory in Suffolk, 
all his lent in his salt 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 
tlie English Notes we find the Sutton and Maltby families closely con- 
nected and also note tlie name Beaumont Sutton. It mav be a connecting 
link. (See Will of John Maltby of E. Retford, 1R47-S, believed to be father 
of the three brotliers who emigrated to New England. In this will he 
makes Beaumont Sutton of E. Retford, gent., overseer of his estate.) 


Thierry, translated by \\'illiam Hazlett, 1891 ; pub. by Geo. Bell 
and Co.) 

We also learn that the Norfolk Alautbys held the Manor of 
Maltby, Co. Norfolk, 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 No. I). The Norfolk 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 No. I) ; and the Maltbys 
of Maltby and Aluston, 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 to the coat-of-arms of the Cleveland, Yorks., Maltbys, 
Mr. Rees-Webbe, late captain in the English army, and then a clergy- 
man in the Church of England, told the compiler that the garbs in 
the arms denoted they held large church lands. Mr. Rees-Webbe 
had a fine collection of seals and was well posted in heraldy. But 
this statement has been contradicted by another gentleman who main- 
tains the wheat sheaves are used by so many different families they 
could hardly all have been holders of considerable church lands. 
However, it is a fact that the Maltbys did give largely to the church 
land in their possession and were founders of various abbeys ; as 
Hugo (2) who founded the Priory of Spinney ; Sir William (3) who 
built the Chapel at Ayton; Richard (3) who founded the Monastery 
of Neubo Abbey, Lincoln, in 1198; John (4) who confirmed grants 
of Morton Grange to the Abbot Neubo; William (5) who confirmed 
grants to Byland Abbey in 1247; William (6) gave lands to the 
Priory of Briddlington, 1267, and various other such records which 
will be found in the English 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 New England the line of John in the male 
issue failed in the third generation ; Robert is not known to have 
had any descendants, consequently this branch of the family all 
descend from William ( i ) and in like manner those bearing the 
name Maltby, must be descendants of the three youngest 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," S"<^ was 
from Mrs. Lovering to Mrs. George Ellsworth Maltby. 


Mrs. Levering writes : "The home of the English ^Nlaltbys is many, yet 
notwithstanding I have spent many months in England, the only Maltby 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 ]\Ialtby, 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 Brussels in the year 1840; so he was prob- 
ably born about 1810 or 181 5. Could his descendants be discov- 
ered it is extremely likely that many of the records so earnestly 
desired by present day Maltbys would be found. 

In the Print Room at the British Musetim, Book plates of vari- 
ous members of the Maltby family are to be seen. Whether 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 Mahby became a bishop 
he had to register his arms at the Heralds' CoHege and the Hon 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, implying 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 Mary 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 Maltbys, 
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 efifort 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 
b\- Edward C. Harte, Esq., of Wells, Somerset, who furnished a large 
number of the English notes and was of much assistance with the 


Heraldry of the Maltbys. To the Maulsby 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 the 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 Maltbys of New England.

Important note for the American ^laltbys. As East Retford is, we be- 
lieve, the birthplace of our emigrant ancestor, William Maltby, Esq., this 
item showing Maltbys seated at Retford as early as 1328, should be of par- 
ticular interest to us. We think of East Retford as in Nottinghamshire, 
and true it is, but Nottingham was anciently in the diocese of York. The 
information was kindly given by Harry Speight, Esq., of Yorkshire, the 
well known author and genealogist.

XoTE. — Before beginning the records of the next century it may be well 
to note that in the items above, nearly every person mentioned can be traced, 
or placed, to the Yorkshire or Norfolk Maltbys found in Pedigrees I., II. and 
IV. From tiie commencement of the iSth century, 1400 to 1499, it is more diffi- 
cult to identify the persons contained in the records ; this, of course, ow'ng 
to the fact that the younger sons emigrated to new counties, and also to 
the greatly 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. 
i-iQi. Thomas Malby, Mayor of Limerick, 1401 ( \'ide : Ferrar's 
Hist, of Limerick). 

Note — ^This is the second record of a Maltby in Ireland in my piissession.* 
1401. July, Confirmat. Sellers Patent to William Alaltby and 
Margaret, his wife, and others to found a Chantry for 4 Chap- 
lains in the Church of St. Martin Sevestre (p. 371, Cal. Patent 
1401-1402. Robert de Malteby, Citizen of London (pp. 81-496. 

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

1405. Oct. 26, Maltby, Matilda de, .\ldwerk, York, fst. St. Thomas 
de "Herfordensis Epi," 1405 ( \'ol. 3, 238 folio. Yorkshire Wills). 

1406. Robert Malteby (of London) suinqf Nicholas Waryn 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 family of Yorkshire. Pedigree I. 
William (9) de Malebisse, Miles, 1339; died about 1365; married a daughter 
of John Sampson. Miles, and here we find in 1402, Robert :Malteby, Citizen 
of London, suing- .John Sampson, junior, of Plymouth for 10 marks. It 
would seem that Robert was one of the younger children of William and 
wife — Sampson Malebisse — and that John Sampson. Jr., was his cousin. 

*Is this Thomas (2), Pedigree V.?

30 Oct. 1403 ; bur. in Chapel of St. Mary in the Church of St. 
Peter and St. Paul of Mauteby. His wife, Agnes, predeceased 
him (Bloomfield's Norfolk). 
Note. — From this it will be seen that John (8), Pedigree IV., had a 

brother Thomas. 

''"1413. In 1413, Robert Mauteby, Esq., enfeoffed Sir Miles 
Stapleton, Sir Simon Feltrigge, Sir William Argentien and

See Pedigree I., which ends, in 1377, with Walter Alaltby who 
went to the Holy Lands ; but from the above will it is con- 
clusively proved that this family did not die out, but was per- 
petuated through younger sons. ii3-5G93

liam de Brown of Manor of Browne Hall, near Norton, Norfolk, 
[on border of Suffolk] m. Petronell^.one of the heiresses of

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. 
Note. — In Pedigree IV., it will be seen that Sir Walter (S) Mauteby m. 

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

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

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

In the north window of the chancel in Mauteby Church is 
an effigy of a man in complete armour. . . . de Hykeling ; also 
efifigy of his wife, Alice or Elizabeth de Hickling, with arms sa. a 
cross argent. At each end of the church lies a curious antique 
monument of grey marble, a coffin on pavement ; on the coffin 
is the effigy of a Knight Templar* cross legged in armour, in 
memory, it is said, of a Knight of the de Alauteby family living- 
according to the style of the monument circ. 1250. 

The south aisle, where many Mautbys 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 'armiseir" refer to Jolm MaUby 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 (VIT) wliere it mentions: Anne 
Marbury, mar. (2) .Armig-er Warde. Query: Is this VS^^ard familv connected 
with those mentioned in Pedigree notes. Pedigree V. 

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

"Edmond Gresham was borne uppon saynt Clare day, the vyrgen, 
the xij day of August Ao diy. X\^CXXX, John Malby, John 
Donstall and Thomas Ippeswell, these were his godffathers." 

1530. Richard ^Maltby held, A. D. 1530, one ox-gang of land in 
Orston of Sir Richard Bozon. Kt. (Indes 185, Inquisitions 
Post Mortem, Nottinghamshire, edit. W. P. AV. Phillimore). 
This should be of interest to the Orston Maltbys. 

The following from Rutland W' ills, found in the Boston Library : 
1527-32. Mawbie, Robert, Maseby (Book D.. p. 205). 
1540-42. Malbie. John, Crick. (Book G., p. 118, P. 35). 

* The name Roger is uncommon in the Maltby Family up to this date. 
Perhaps this Roser is the Roger, Vicar of St. Nicholas. See under date 
1563. Also in 1592, at Springthorpe, Roger Maltbv had a son .John, bapt. 26 
Nov., 1592. 

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

t Is this Sir Nicholas Malby of the Irish notes? The records say: 
"Sir Nicholas Malby's father died when he was four years old — died about 
1534." This is near enough so that it would be possible for this Nicholas 
to be one and the saine as Sir Nicholas. 

§ Anthony Maltby. This is a name found amongst the Orston Maltbys 
and also Anthony Marbury is a very common name in the Marbury family. 
There seems to be a close connection here between the Maltbvs and Mar- 
burys. See further under Maltbv Heraldrv.

1536. Examination of William Hurte and others regarding the 
Lincolnshire RebelHon, 28 Oct., 28 Henry Mil. That Sir 
Simon ^Vlaltby, Parson of Farforthe was on Saturday before 
the Insurrection, before D. Reynes. the Bishop of Lincoln at 
Bollyngebrooke at the court of the valuation of Benefices and 
returning home reported that their silver chalices were to be 
given to the King in exchange for tin ones, and that he and 
other priests had determined to take down the said Chancellor 
and trusted in the support of their neighbors. The Sunday 
after the Insurrection, Sir Simon prayed for the Pope and 
College of Cardinals. (Vide p. 401, Vol. XL, Letters and Papers, 
Foreign and Domestic, Henry VIII, 1536. See also p. 47, Vol. 
II., "Henry VIII. and the English Monasteries." by F. A. Cas- 
quet, 6th edit., pub. John Hodges. 1902.) 
Note. — "Sir" here is equivalent to "Mr." It was the prefix of respect 

placed before clerg\'men"s names and equivalent to "Rev'd;" Simon is a name 

found in Pedigree IV.

Note. — Evidently Johan and William Alaltby were children of Chris- 
topher and Johan of Hemswell. See Will 1541. 

1543. Mawbye "is a wise fellow"; i. e.. Thomes Maltby or 
Mawbye, who has a provision to contract for victualling the 
army (!). The exclamation is added by a contemporary Kng- 
lishman who furnished the record ; before the present war, 
however. (Vol. 18, II., p. 130; Vol. 18, I., p. 728, same refer- 

1544. Grant to Thomas Melby (Malby) and others of lands in 
Yorks. ; lands belonging lately to Roche Monastery (Vol. 19. 
Part II.. p. yy, above reference). Evidently belonging to the 
family in Pedigree II. 

1544. Maltbie has a contract to purvey cheese (to the troops) 
(Vol. 19, P. 2, p. 88, above reference). This is evidently Thomas 
Maltby, alias Mawlbie, alias Maulbie. 

Note. — This is evidently the first time in recording the name of Maltby 
in its manifold forms, that we find MaJthic, which has come to be so much 
used since. 

1545. Thomas Malby of London, fishmonger, regarding victualling- 
Calais and Boulogne (Vol. XX., Pr. 2, p. 194, above reference).

of the American Maltbys of New England, 1670.) Daughters 
Margaret, Izabell. Wife, Margerie, and son, Richard, to be 
exors. Son, William. Mentions Christopher Maultby as a 
supervisor. (Proved in ons of Lincoln, 3 Dec, 1557.)

of Maltby, Pedigree II.

Note. — This John Maultby, dwelling in Xorfolk, is probably a son of 

Roger Maltby. Vicar of St. Nicholas, Norfolk in 1563. Does this means 

Walsingham a place? And is tliis John the brother of Sir Nicholas, who 

he mentions in 1580?

And did Evereld marry twice? Still she would have been called widow if the 
following record applied to her. It is from York IMarriage Licenses, 1626, 
and reads : "Geo. Wentworth, gent., of Wolley and Averil Alaltby of Cotting-

50 MALTBY-FA^IILY history-maltbie 

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

1636. N. B. — The Orston records which fohow are in bad shape 
owing to the register being eaten away, torn and badly damaged. 
It will be noted that after 1639 the Maltby records cease until 
1662. As it was in 1641 that William Maltby, gent., who married 
Jane B rough, was born, it is very probable that his birth follows 
that of Mary ]\Ialtby in 1639, and that he was a son of John and 
Mary Maltby.

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 Mary Maltby, viz. : 

1633. Elizabeth. 

1634. Anne. 
1636. Hugh. 

1639. Mary; and there was evidently 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 family. 

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 early days.

1647. Will of John Maultby of E. Retford, Co. Nottingham, alder- 
man, dated 6 Oct., 1647. (Supposed father of the New England 
emigrants, John, William and Robert.) Eldest son, John Maltby, 
houses in Briggate, E. Retford, Carr Lane, close in Ljttle Grino:- 
ly in Clarborough. Second son, William, my lands in Spring-

and William, to have the residue and to be exex. Sister E'Jlin

Moore, 20/ — . Poor of Springthorpe, 20/ — . Brother Robert 
friends, Mr. Dickens of Saundley. elk., and Beaumont Sutton of 
E. Retford, gent., to be overseers. Annie Stounton, Tho 
Maulby -|-, Witnesses. Codicil, 28 Dec, 1647: House in Brig- 
gate to be sold and fioo to son John at 21, and the residue for 
my youngest son, latelv born. Tho. Biggs, Tho. Maultbv, P. C. 
y'., Apl, 1648. Filed Will. 

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

Mrs. Anne Mason, godmother of his daughter Elizabeth, was 
probably a connection by marriage, as his niece Margaret married 
William Mason, gent., of E. Retford. His nephew John was a son 
of his brother Robert of Bautry. 

Tt will be noticed that in his will John Maltby leaves "Eldest 
son, John Maltby, houses in Briggate, E. Retford, etc." And further: 
"Wife Mary to hold mv houses during the nonage of my sons Jon 
and William," and still further in the codicil : "House in Briggate 
to be sold and £100 to son John at 21 and the residue for mv voung- 
est son, lately born." This youngest son was Robert. The Retford 
Ba]^tisms give: "28 Dec, 1647, Robt. son of John Maultby." 


Now if we turn to the year 1662 we find \\ illiam Carr and 
Dorothy, his wife ; John Maltby ; George Hohnes and Mary, his 
wife ; Robert ]\Ialtby ; Robert White and Johne, his wife. selHng tw^o 
messuages, two gardens, 25 acres of land, etc., in East Retford, etc. 
Wilham Carr and wife Dorothy I fail to place. John Maltby 
I 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 iioo and it was probably this money received thai 
started him in the New World, for it will be remembered that only 
two years later. 1664. April, we find John ]\Ialtby's signature in Xew 

George Holmes and Mary, his wife. This I presume to be 
Mary ^laltby, wid. of John Maltby. who had remarried. This would 
explain why no will of a Mary ]\[altby could be found by Mr. 

Robert W'hite and Johne. his wife. In the will of William, son 
of Robert ]\faltby of Bawtry. he mentions : "his cousin. Jane Turn- 
ell." always presumed to be Jane, dan. of John ]\Ialtby. Possibly 
she m. first Robert \\'hite. Much of this is purely conjecture, but 
it is plausible and worth keeping 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 Maltby, of E. Retford, 1647, mentions for overseer, "Beaumont Sut- 
ton, Gent." The Will of Johan Maltbye, 1545, mentions Isabell Sutton. 
(It has been thought that the name Isabell in the Maltby family was derived 
from the Suttons.) The Will of Robert Maltby of Wilgheton, 1635, men- 
tions son Hammond. It may also be that the name Nicholas comes from 
the Sutton family.

2 cottages, 2 gardens, 2 orchards, etc., etc., in East Retford, Co. 
Notts. Feet of Fines, 14-15, Car. II., 1662. 

Note. — The above are evidently descendants of Richard JNlaltby, Will 
proved 1638. Dorothy, w. of Sir George Savile is evidently a dau. of Eliza- 
beth Maltby Hallifax or of her brother, William Maltby. Sarah Maltby m. 
William Parke and had a dau. Sicely, who is evidently the wid., Cecilia 
Cherbury. Margaret Maltby m. William Mason, gent., and Mary Maltby m. 
Robert Farmary. The John Maltby is evidently John, the son of Richard's 
brother John, or in other words, the John we believe emigrated to New 
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 
Maltby to start life in the New \\^orld. 

1662. Final agreement between John Darell. gent. ; John Ward and 
Elizabeth, his wife; Richard Otter, Anne, his wife, purchaseors,

of land, 6 of meadow, 2 of pasture and common of pasture with 
appurts. in East Retford, West Retford and Babworth in Co. 
Notts. Feet of Fines Trinity, 14 Car. II., 1662. 

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 Briggate was to be sold and he was to receive £100 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.

Cotton of Crake Marsh, Co. Stafford, Esq., son and heir of Wm. 
Cotton and Ann Cotton. Orator's mother, Ann, was seised of 
the Crowne Inn in Bawtry, Co. York, and worth £50 per ann. 
In 1642, your Orator was in ward of the Court of Wards and a 
fine was set at £450 and £40 rent. By assignments the Crowne 
became vested in Robert Maltby, who is since dead and the mes- 
suage has come to Daniel Maltby. an infant son and heir of said 
Robert, who with Richard Thwaits, gent., have threatened to 

* Arthur H. Norway in "Highways and Byways in Yorkshire" writes: 
"I have ridden far (on bicycle) and am goina: into tlie Trown,' that pic- 
turesque old liostelry, for some refreshment, over which the proverbial 
saying about the town warns me not to liurry, lest I be overtaken by the 
fate of 'the saddler of Bawtry. who was hanged for leaving liis liquor.'". 
The incident follows. This "Crown," where he stopped is very probably 
the same "Crowne" messuage owned by Daniel Maltby. A note on tlie 
Twaite family (Richard Thwaite was brother-in-law of Daniel MaUby) 
will be found under date 1668. 


eject your Orator. Object of suit equity of redemption of the 
Crovvne.* Defts. Daniel Maltby, Richard Thwaites and John 
Noble. The answer of Daniel Maultby is that it was an absolute 
purchase, as it appears by deed dated 30 Oct., 1654. This deft, 
is now 21 years of age, but is willing to reconvey the messuage 
if paid for it. (Chancery Proceedings before 1714. C. 201.)

P. C. Y., 18 Sept. 1672, 53-262.) 

XoTE. — From this item we find that Robert Maultby of Bawtry sold a 
house in Bawtry to Richard Beare a short time before 6 August 1672. It 
It was probably in order to have ready money for his voyage to Xew Eng- 
land that he sold this house. See under American notes where Robert 
Maltby. vSenior. was a "stranger in Xew Haven," Dec. 29. 1671.

1672-3. Maltby V. Maltby. 17 Feby., 1672-3. Orator Daniel 
Maltby of Doncaster, Co. York, gent. Robert Maltby of Bawtry 
borrowed £50 from Robert Langley of Bawtry and for security 
mortgaged three messuages in Bawtry. Langley conveyed his 
interest in the mortgage to your Orator. Robert Maltby has 
failed to^ay the principal and interest. To recover money and 
discovery of a deed of agreement. Defts. Robert Maultbie, Cor- 
nelius Clarke, Wm. Simpson and Eliz. Partridge. (Chanc. Proc. 
before 1714, 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. 
See American notes, where he mentions "ye wrong sustained in coming from 
England," etc. 

1673. Maltby \'. Alured. 15 June, 1673. Oratrix Sarah Maltby, 
spinster, ve only daughter now living of Robert Maltbv of 
Bawtry, Co. York, by the said Robert, her father and guardian. 
Anne Maltby of Bawtry, ye elder, (her grandmother) w^as, dur- 
ing her widowhood, seized of a good estate. To recover rents.

answers 'of Mary Coulson, Richard Wayne (or Wavnd) and 
Dorothy, his wife, defts. to bill of Sarah Maltby, an infant, by 
Robert Maltby, her guardian. Robert Coulston of CottinQham 
was agent for Ann Maltby, the elder, as collector of rents. 
Ann directed that any money that should remain more than her- 
selfe should receive should go to the children of one Robert 
Maltby, which thev believe were Ann, who is since dec. and 
Sarah, the now complt. Ready to perform the trusts. The 
answer of John Alured, a defendant. Anne Maltby died intes- 


tate, Oct. 19, Car. II., (1667-8) and admon. was granted to this 
deft, as next of kin by the P. C. Y. Estate of Ann Maltbv. 
(Chanc. Proc. before 1714, C. 63.) 

Note. — It would seem that Ann. vv. of Robert Maltbv of Bawtry, Will 
proved 1663-5, was an Alured or possibly John Alured was a sister's son. 
If she were an Alured, then William Maltbv, Will 1666-7, was probably the 
son by a first wife (perhaps Barbara) Stoakham. It also would seem that 
Robert Maltby, 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. 

1675. Abstract of Will of William Alaltby of Speeton, Co. York,

Note. — It would be of considerable interest and great value if it could 
be ascertained just who was this Malby, serving in the army or navy in 

1697. Could it have been the emigrant. Robert Maltbye. brother of Joha

With the hope that some descendant, either in England or tiie 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 first settlement in 1628 to 
1750 by Thomas Hutchinson, late Governor of Massachusetts, Boston, 1795," 
page 357. 

(In the year 1740.) ".\t length it being known that Lord Euston'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 clergy, conspiring the ruin of the Congre- 
gational interest in New England, and unless he was immediately removed, 
it would be irrevocably lost; that the Duke of Grafton had promised if Lord 
Euston's election could be secured it should be done; that letters to hi? 
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 Coventry, 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 easily imposed on." 

From the synta.x it would seem that the "Mr. ]\Ialtby" of whom Gov- 
ernor Hutchinson wrote, resided in the Colony and journeyed to England 
to labor for the interests of the Congregational Church in New England, 
and that he returned to New England, where he had an interview with 
Governor Hutchinson. W'ho was this "Mr. Maltby?" \Va^ 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. Possibly there are other references to the 
Maltbys in this book. It is certainly worth investigating.

Pe;digree I. 

Acaster Malhisse 

"Visitation of Yorkshire," Edited by Foster, 1487, fo. 254, b. Yorks. 

Pedigree from Hugo de Malebisse. 

N. B. — It is said that this Hugo de IMalebisse is the progenitor from 
whom all the Alaltbys descend. 

I. HUGO de Malebisse liekl lands in Yorkshire at the time of 
AMUiam the Conqueror. Some of his children were: Richard (2), 
Hugo (2) and Gulfrid (2), who was witness to the charter of the 
foundation of Beverly Abbey, Co. Lincoln, in 1 142. Founded by the 
Earl of Lincold. Richard (2) witness to Charter of Adam de Raine- 
ville. (Lib. de Pontefracto, fo. 5.) 

n. HUGO (2) m. Emma de Percy, dau. and heiress of Henry 
de Percy of Acaster. He had: Hugo (3), Chief Justice, m. first, 

Constance ; m. second, Beatrix, Lady of the Manor of 

Wykes, County Cambridge. He founded the Priory of Spinney, 
time Henry IIL, 1216. Sir William (3) de Maltby, 1207, held 
lands in Cleveland, Co. York ; built Chapel at Ayton, where he was 
Lord of the Manor, before 1200; (this Sir William was probably 
nearly related to the Maltbys of Maltby and Muston. See Pedigree 
H.) Sir Simon (3), Lord of Cowton in Craven, York., m. a dau. 
of John, Lord of Methley (see under Beckwith). ^Matilda (3) m. 
Richard de Perri, Lord of Tillerton ; Richard (3). 

in. RICHARD (3) founded the Monastery of Neubo Abbey, 
Lincolnshire, 1198, Acaster near York; d. in 1209; Chief Justice of 
Assize. Had W^arrennam with Scalton. near York. Lord chief 
forester, Galtres, Derwent and Wemsdaley. Had large possessions, 
including Acaster, near York. Children were: Richard (4), 1245; 
Emma (4) m. first, Robert de Maisnil ; m. second, Robert de Stre- 
leril. Robertus (4), John (4), Richard (4). Richard (4) was of 
Benningsburgh. Robertus (4) had a son, Richard (5), of Benning- 
worth, who m. Alicia Ski]nvorth. 



\\. JOHN (4), 1 2 13, confirmed grant his father had made 
from Morton Grange to the Abbot Neubo, 14 John. 

\'. WILLIAM (5) confirmed grants to Byland Abbey, 1247; 
m. Matilda, dan. and co-heiress of Ralph Neville. 

VI. WILLIAM (6), 29 Henry III., gave lands to Priory of 
Bridlington, 1267. 

VII. RICHARD (7) Miles, 9 Edward III. D. about 1312. 
Of Acaster Malebis (de Eya). 

VIII. JOHN (8), Lord Malebisse-y-Miles, Viscome's Ebor., 
High Sheriff, Co. York, 1314 (8 Edward II.) ; d. in 1316. He m. 
Agnes, dau. of Sir E^dward Wilktrope. 

IX. WILLIAM (9) de Malebisse, Aliles, 1339 (d. about 
1365, 12 Edward III.) ; m. a dau. of John Sampson, Miles. His 
sister Margaret (9) m. Thomas Fairfax of Walton. They had Clar- 
issa (10) Fairfax, who m. first, William Palmes (q.v.) and second. 
Sir William Malbis. William (9) Maltby had Sir Thomas (10). 

X. WALTER (10), the latter, on going to the Holy Lands 
mortgaged Scalton to William Fairfax, making latter's son, Richard, 
his heir if he did not return. His brother. Sir Thomas (10) de 
Malebisse, had a daughter, Margaret (11) who m. Richard Fairfax 
(son of W'illiam to whom Walter (10) Maltby mortgaged Scalton), 
who was heir of her uncle Walter (10). Sir Thomas (10) also 
l;ad a daughter, Elizabeth (11) Maltb}', co-heiress with Margaret 
Maltbv Fairfax. 

XI. AIARGARET Malebisse 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 
Elizabeth (11) Malebisse, co-heiress with Margaret (11), 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 Malbys. 
Adm. Vol. II., folio 497. 

Note — It is probable that Guilfrid (2), who witnessed the charter of 
the founding of Beverl}' Abbey, Lincohishire. 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 Maltbys of ]\Ialtby branch 
(see Pedigree II.) ; though as yet this has not been proven. 


An item that evidently refers to Walter (10) Maltby 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 Alaltbys "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: "IMiss Chol- 
mondeley knows nothing of the Alaltbys." 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. 


I. Htigo Alalebis, to whom Roger de ^Nlobrai (son and heir of 
Nigel de Albina) granted (inter aha) the fee of lands in Carlton,* 
Silton. Kepwick, Morton, Dale and Hornby. ( Vide York Cop. 
Papers. Vol. II., p. 950.) 

II. One authority states: "Sir William Malebis m. Emma de 
Percev, dan. of Henry de Percy of Acaster." I 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. 
York, 1 100 A. D. Note that Wilham (i) of Pedigree II., names a 
son Henry. Was he not named for Henry de Percy? 

III. Sir Richard Malebis (Ricardus Malebyse) of Acaster 
Malbis, Aug. 28, T179, Roger de Molbray and Henry de Munford

Note. — Acaster-Malbis : Emma de Percy was evidently either sole, or 
co-heiress of Henry de Percy of Acaster. hence her son is called "of Acaster 
Malbis." The name Roger de Molbray (Mobrai) is perhaps that from which 

* The quotation mav be found on pp. 33-34. Vol. II. of "Diana Tempest" 
as foUows: "The very" sun himself smote, not throug-h the gaudy figures 
of Scripture story, but through the painted arms of the Malbys: of the 
penniless, pious Malby, who sold his land to his clutching Tempest brother- 
in-law in order to get out to the Crusades." And on p. 256 of Vol. I. we 
find: "He rose suddenly and went across to the deep bay window, on the 
stone sill of which Amyas Tempest, and Tom Fairfax, his friend, who 
together had held Overleigh against the Roundheads, had cut their names." 

* Is Carlton later called Sealton. 


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 rvlaltby 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 
name ?

Note. — This may be where the name Nichols comes from in the Maltby 
family. There is an error somewhere in the dates, as it is too long a break 
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 
mentioned that his father died "aged 101 years. 101 days." 

VI. GEORGE Maltby. living about 1364. m. Alice, dau. and 

heiress of Thomas and Mary • Seymour, and granddaughter of

where the names Thomas and Richard come into the family, as the 
Seymours were prominent and they would have been apt to keep 
their names in the family. (Vide. \'isit. York., edited by Xorclift'e."^'''

15. Catharine Maltby, b. 1599; m. Michael Warton of Beverly, 
who died in the lifetime of his father. Sir Michael Warton of Bev- 
erly (d. 1655). His wife was Elizabeth, dau. and co-heiress of 
Ralp Hawsby. Catharine Maltby Warton had a son Michael (16) 
Warton of Beverly Park, Esq., ae. abt. 42, anno. 15 Sept., 1666. 
His w. was Susan, dau. of John, Lord Paulet of Hinton, St. George 
Somerset. (Vide, le Neves Knights, edit. Geo. W. ^Marshall, 1873; 
Vol. VIH.. p. 205, Harl. Soc.) " 

NoTr:. — "Susan, dau. of John, Lord Pauk't." Here we have the surname 
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 Maltby 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 Alaltby of Cottingham (mar.) 1636, at Royston or 

It would seem that Evereld Alaltby who m. Sir Michael Warton 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 
Beverly, Esq., dyed in his father's lifetime, being slayn by a cannon bullet 
at Scarborough Castle in the time of the late wars, it being then a garrison 
for the King [Pap. ?] 23 Oct., 1593, at St. John's, Beverly. He m. Catharine, 
dau. and co-heiress of Christopher Alaltby of Maltby in Coun — Ebor; m. 
1 Oct., 1620, at Cottingham." Their children were : 

1. Michael Warton, named for himself and father. 

2. Sir Ralphe Warton, named for her grandfather, Ralph Creyke; also 
for his grandfather, Ralph Hawsby. 

3. Everill Warton, named for her mother. 

4. Catherine Warton, named for herself. 

5. Elizabeth Warton, named for his mother, Elizabeth Hawsby.

and "Bush Close" in Mendham. etc. Signatures of Henrie Ward 

and Edward Warde. Witnesses. Notary Public, , 


There seems to be a close connection with the Wentworths here; also 
with the Malbys of Stonham Aspall, and in 1633, we find John Maltbie of 
Sainton marrying Elizabeth Ward of Bain. See also under date 1662, where 
John Ward and Elizabeth, his wife, sell property in East Retford, etc. Per- 
haps she was a dau. of John Maltbie and Elizabeth Ward. 

The Genealogist, Vol. XXL, p. 120, Dugdale's Visit of Yorkshire, gives 
the following: "Wentworth Family of Wolley. Arms: Sable a chev. between 
3 leopard's faces, or. Michael Wentworth of Wolley, Esq., ob. 1641, m.

buried at Aldborough, 19 Aug., 1663. His wid. was buried at Aid- 
borough, 27 April, 1665. Their Children were Sir William Tancred, 
second Baronet and Catherine Tancred. 

Note. — Sir Roger Beckwith, descended from Sir Hercules ^Malbie, was 
of Aldborough, created a Baronet, 1681. Title extinct in 1741. 

The Tancred pedigree is given by Mrs. Clara H. Manning in "The Lore 
of Ancestry," as follows : "Tancred Arms : Argent, a chevron between three 
escallops gules. Crest : An olive tree fructed proper. 

"About the time of Henry III." (1216-1272) "we find one William

The three silver castors reprofhiced 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 family. 

Suppleme:ntary Notes Pedigree II. 

Til. John de Matiltby (3) had Gilbert (4), Robert (4), Chris- 
tian (4), Catharine (4), Constance (4), WilHam (4). The Cal. 
Pat. Rolls mentions : "William, son of John de Maltby, and Gilbert 
son of John de jMalteby." This William is evidently Sir William (4) 
and i^ives an indication of the period in which he lived. The date 
should probably be 1309 and not 1209. Under date 13 10, we evi- 
dently find a reference to Robert (4), son of John (3).

may be the branch of Sir Nicholas Malby.

MAWBEY-SURREY (See Pedigree IV.) 

From "Planning 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: 'Air. John Mawbey, 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 Norfolk, where 
formerly they were owners of large possessions. The said John 
Mawbey m. Martha, dau. of Mr. Thomas Pratt, late of this parish, 
and by her, who died in 1737 had [4 sons and 4 daughters]. John 
Mawbey above mentioned was the only son of Vir. William Mawbey 
of this parish, who died in 1733, seventh son of Erasmus Mawbey 
of Sherrton in the Co. of Leicester, only son of Richard Alawbey 
of South Kilworth, whose elder brother John, by Agnes, dau. of 
William Chamberlayne, Esc|., of Leicester, was father of Erasmus 
Mawbey or Mautbey, who in 1643. joining the regiment of horse 
commanded by 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 whom was bapt. at South Kilworth (as 
appears by the Register of that parish) on 12 May, 1561, were the 
sons of Richard Mawbey, Esq., by Margaret, his wife, of South 
Kilworth, aforesaid, born at Keltering in the Co. of Northampton 
and descended from the ancient family of ]\Iazcbeys or Mautbeys of 
the Co. of Norfolk: Joseph Mawbey. Esq.. of Kennigton and 
Botleys, in the Co. of Surrey, sheriff, in 1757, for that county 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, Vol. I., p. 116. Botlevs in 
the Co. of Surrey : "Sir Joseph Mawbey was descended from a family 
in Norfolk, 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 effigy of a Knight Templar named De Mauteby. The 
property of the family being confiscated in the Civil Wars, they re- 
moved into Leicestershire. Colonel Mawbey fell at the head of his 
volunteers in Sir Arthur Hesilrigg's corps at Roundway Down." 
"John Dryden wrote an epitaph for ^largaret Alawbey Paston." 


I. It will be seen that Richard (i). brother of Simon de 
Alauteby, had a son Robert (2), who had six sons, one was John (3). 
It seems very probable that this John (3) was the Sir John Alalbye 
of ]\Ialbye Hall, progenitor of the ]\lalbyes of Stonham Aspall, 
Suffolk. See Pedigree \'., as we see that Robert (2) gave to vSt. 
Mary of Sibton Priory, Suffolk. The brother Matthew ( 3 ) is very 
evidently he who accompanied the Earl of Norfolk to Rome in 1245 ; 
and with "the King beyond the Seas" in 1242. A Matthew de 
]\Iatebie held Essex lands about the time of Henry HI. [1216-1272]. 
See Pedigree. 

n. Walter de Mauteby. Bloomfield gives under date 1228: 
"Walter de >\Ialteby conveyed to Simon, the Prior, a messuage, etc., 
in Hemsby and Marcham ; the Prior conveyed to Walter all the land 
he had at Becham except adowson." Query: Is this W^alter (2) ? 

Til. In 1229 the Cal. Pat. Rolls mentions Roberto Malteby 
and in 1235 and 1242 we find 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 ]\lauteby had free warren ( Norfolk ) . See also under 
dates 1249, '^-53- i-5^'- 1-270. 1272. 

IN. Sir John m. Agnes . Bloomfield states under 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 Pedigree 
I\'-A the record reads: "Sir John Mawtby m. Elianor (Elen) dau. 
of Adam Clifton de Bokenham." These records are very confusino- 
and quite beyond the compiler to untangle.

She died about 1481-4. Her will 4 Feb., 1481, proved 18 Dec, 1484. 
From here the notes are a bit confused. Their children seem to 
have been : 

XI. Sir John Paston. b. 1439; d. unm. in 1479. 

1 1 John Paston, living 1466. 

II William Paston, b. 1459. 

II Robert Paston. 

II Edmund Paston, youngest son, had Anne (12) Pas- 
ton, who m. William Yelverton : Constance (12), 
Margery (12), Dorothy (12) and Phillipa (12) 


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: 

Sufifolk, Edward III., reign [1327-1377] : "Sir Robert Mauteby. lord and 
patron, succeeded by Sir John de ]\Iauteby, son of Sir John de Mauteby, Kt. 
(1374). See Pedigree VIII. This is evidently Sir John {7), who m. EHanor, 
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 ]\Ianors of Sparham, Gresham. etc."' 

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

Descended from him were : 
Sir John Mawbey, who d. 1403. 
Sir John Mawbey, whose dau. Alianore m. Sir William Calthorpe. (This 

should be Sir John, son of Sir Robert (10). Pedigree IV.) 
John de INIawby, 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 
Oxnead (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 Gen. 
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. 


VIII. According to Bloomfield, p. 227, the will of Robert 
Mauteby, 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 Notes to Pedigree No. IV. 

Norfolk Pedigree. (Before Conquest ?) 

From Bloomfield's Hist, of Norfolk: "The Manor (or Lord- 
ship) of Maltby or Matitby, Co. Norfolk, was in existence before 
the Conquest. When Wiston the (Saxon ?) tenant was expelled." 
Further Bloomfield says : "A family who took their name from the 
the town were Earey EnFEOFEEd of it by the Crown. In 1 198 Simon 
de Maudeby had interests in the Manor of Maltby. Also a Walter 
de Malteby in 1166, had dealings respecting land (Becham Manor) 


with Simon, the Prior of Norwich. In 1284, a Walter de Mallety 
or Mautby described as Lord of Malteby also had dealings respect- 
ing Becham Manor lands with the prior of Norwich Monastery."' 
From this I conclude that the name Maltby (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 Will. II.— probably Will. I. Contributed Note by Edward Wells 
Harte, of Wells, England : The Anglo-Norman Malbys family evi- 
dently obtained grants temp. Conquest. Arms : Hinds' heads.

ington, D. C. 


Since writing the above a few interesting notes concerning this 
family were found in a delightful book, "The Norfolk Broads," by 
W. A. Dutt, and seem well worth quoting in this book. On page 
104 is the following: "A bv-road branching off southeast from the 
Ormsby road where it skirts the village green leads to Mautby. a 
parish bordering the Bure. Here again we come in touch with the 
Pastons, for Margaret Paston, whose letters are the most delighful 
in the famous collection, was a daughter of John de Mauteby, 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 


bouses of York and Lancaster, would be soniewbat dry reading if 
it were not for ber love for ber 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 be 
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 York, 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. Writ- 
ing to her son, Sir John Paston, who was probably with King 
Edward IV. at Pomfret at the time, she says. 'I would you should 
speak with Wekis (Wykes, an usher of the King's Chamber), and 
know his disposition to Jane Walsham. She hath said, since he 
departed hence, but (unless) she might have him, she would never 
marry, her heart is so sore set on him, she told me that he said 
to her that there was no woman in the world he loved so well. I 
would not he should jape her, for she meaneth good faith.' But, 
like a careful match-maker, she is anxious that her young friend's 
matrimonial prospects 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 haste, and I shall purvey 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 
not the keys, I trow it shall get injured unless it be taken heed 
to betimes. ... I sent your grey horse to Ruston to the farrier, 
and he saith he shall never be nought 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 was 
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 vou mav." Delight- 


fill Dame Margaret ! Her gentle wraith seems to haunt the meads 
of her Caister* home. She was buried in Alautby Church, in ac- 
cordance with the instructions of her will, in which she desires to 
be interred 'in the aisle of that church at Alawteby, in which aisle 
rest the bodies of 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 
effigy of Sir Walter de Mauteby, one of her ancestors who died in 

"\\'ithin the bounds of 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 
Mautby are some ancient memorials of the Mawteby family, in- 
cluding the earliest existing in Broadland probably. ..." 

* Caister Castle. (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 he 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 tliat 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 powder," 
tliey were compelled to surrender. Lengthy legal proceedings ensued. 
Margaret Paston in a letter to her husband, writes: "My Lord of Nor- 
wich said to me that he would not liave abide the sorrow and trouble 
that you have 'abyden' to win all Sir John Fastolff's goods." But the 
Duke retained possession until his death, when the king confirmed John 
Paston's right to tlie estate, and until 1599 the castle was the cliief seat 
of tlie 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 tlie west side. The principal remaining portions on the nortli 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 tlie 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 
tlie 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 II. 
was sumptuously entertained. . . ." (page 15.3): "In 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."

I. Malby, d. "when Sir Nicholas Malby was about 4 

years old," probably he d. about the year 1534. 

Note. — Could he have been the John Maltby of Lincolnshire, who made 
his will, 17 May, 1532, and mentions son Nicholas.

dau. of Robert Lamb of Leeds, York, whose w. was a Castell of 
the Castells of E. Hatley, Camb. Lady Maltby* m. (2) George 
Rawe (or Rowe). Sir Nicholas (2) speaks of his "brother John" 
(2) and the w. of John Maltby, 1532, also mentions "son John." 
Sir Nicholas was President of Connaught. He was descended from 
an old Yorkshire family, mentioned in the Plantation of Leix (Ire- 
land) 1556. He was knighted 7 Oct., 1576; 3 July, 1579, Sir 
Nicholas Maltby of Kilmallock. He d. at Athlone, Ireland, 4 March, 
1584. It is worthy of note that his w., Thomasine, was from 
Leeds, York. 

III. Capt. HENRY Malby, b. 1569; son and heir; m. Eliza- 
beth Jobson ; (Vist. of Essex states: "Henry Malby m. Persall 
Jobson") ; granddaughter of Sir Francis Jobson, Lt. of the Tower 
of London. Apparently he was killed in 1602 in Connaught, Ire- 
land, while in the service of the Crowne. His wid. m. Sir Ralph 

Sir Nicholas (2) had a dau. (3) who m. Thomas Omesby, 
and they had a son, Maltby (4) Omesby, and he had a son. Maltby 
(5) Orsby. Another dau. of Sir Nicholas (2) was L^rsula Malby 
(3). She m. Anthony Brabazon and had a son, Malby (4) Bra- 
bazon, Esq. of Ballinash, Co. Roscommon. Malby (4) m. Sarah, 
dau. of Thomas Burke of Inlahery. Co. Galway. He d. 20 My, 1637. 
Malby (4) had children: 

5 Anthony Brabazon, m. Ellice, dau. of John Dillon, 

turned Papast ; pardoned by the Crown in 1652. 
5 Ursula Brabazon, m. Bernard Talbot of Rathdown, Co. 

Wicklow, Gent. 
5 Sarah Brabazon. 
5 Dorothy Brabazon. 

IV. Sir GEORGE Maltby, Kt., son and heir ; m. .Vnne . 

His will date 1638. 

*My notes state: "Lady Malby subsequently m. Georg-e Rawe." This 
can hardly be the wife of Sir Nicholas as we find her will, 1596. as "Dame 
(or Lady) Thomasin Malbie. wid. of Sir Nicliolas Malby. Kt. It probably 
refers to Anne, wid. of Sir George Maltby, Kt. ; his will proved in 1639. 



The following account of Sir Nicholas ]\Ialby is taken from the 
Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. XXX\\, p. 395 : 

MALBY, Sir Nicholas (i530?-i584) president of Connaught, 
descended from an old Yorkshire family of that name, was b. 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, Mary I., 21 ) On 6 August. 1562, he was found 
guilty of coining, and with three of his associates, was condemned 
to death (Machyn, Diary, p. 290). He was, however, reprieved on 
consenting to serve under Ambrose Dudley, Earl of Warwick, in 
France (State Papers, Dom. Eliz. XXI\\, 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. VIII., 294). He served with credit during the war. and in 
1565 was sent to Spain, where he was commended for his judicious 
conduct by Phayre, the English minister at Madred (Ibid IX., 520). 
On 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 Glynns in check (Ibid No. 1196). He was reproved by the 
lord justices for distraining Sir Brian MacPhelim O'Neill's and other 
Irishmen's castles for cess, but his conduct was justified by Sir 
Henry Sidney (State Papers, Ireland, Eliz. XXII., 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 XXIII., 37-39). but 
he displayed considerable tact in his mana-^ement of vSorley Boy 
MacDonnel (q. v.), and Sidney, on visitino: the north in October, 
I S<^8, found the charge committed to him in verv good state ( Ibid 
XX VT. 12). 

In July, 1569. he was sent to the assistance of Sir Peter Carew 
(q v.) against the Butlers (Hooker's "Life of Sir P. Carew, ed. 
Maclean," 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 military skill by Sir W. Fitzwilliam and Sir Edward 
Fitton, and on 22 March, 1571. he obtained a grant of the office of 
collector of customs of Strangford. Ardglass and Dundrum (Cal. 
Fiants., Eliz. No. 1772). 

In the spring of 1571 he visited England. He strongly ad- 
vocated colonizing 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. . t^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 March, 1579. 
On his way back to Ireland in February, 1572, he captured a Span- 
ish ship in the Channel (Ibid XXXV., 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'Neill 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 XXXVIII. 26. 38; XXXIX.. 45; XLII., 58; XLVIIL, 

His efforts were, however, warmly appreciated by Essex, and 
though, as Waterhouse 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 
affairs in the north in December, 1574 (Ibid XLVIIL, 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 Walsingham, who recom- 
mended him to the queen for the government of Connaught, but 
several months elapsed before this recommendation took effect (Col- 
lins, Sidney Papers, I., 70). During the summer of that year he 
took part in Essex's expedition against Sorley Boy, 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 
M. S. S. II., 149, where 1578 is evidently a mistake for 1576.) 

[Note by the Secretary — Shaw's Book of Knights, \). yy, has 
the following: "Sir Nicholas 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.. 129). As soon as he had established him- 
self firmly in his government. Malby proceeded against John and 


Ulick Burke, sons of the Earl of Clanricarde. It was in the dead 
of winter, but for twent3--one days, he harried their countries with 
fire and sword, sparing neither young nor old (State Papers, Ire- 
land, Eliz. LVII., 40). The vigor he displayed, and the success 
that attended his efforts, drew from Sidney, who was at first 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 May, 1577, he was placed on the commission for eccle- 
siastical causes (Cal. Fiants, Eliz. No. 3047). In October, after 
arranging a feud between O'Conor Don and MacDonough, 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 
appointed Richard MacSwnie sheriff of the county of Sligo. He 
had hardly turned his back when O'Donnell invaded the county, 
slew the sheriff and besieged 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, Malby 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 autumn of 1578 he repaired to England, returning to 
Ireland in May, 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 f200 out 
of the composition paid by the O'Farrells. and certain lands in 
Longford (Morrin. Cal. Pat. Rolls, II.. 17). During his absence 
in England his officers and soldiers behaved badly, but Connaught 
remained tranquil (State Papers. Ireland. Eliz. LX\"I., 67. 68). So 
firmly established, indeed, was the peace of the province, that on the 


outbreak of James Fitzmaurice's rebellion in July, Malby, with six 
hundred well-furnished troops, marched to Limerick to co-operate 
with the lord justice, Sir WilHam 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 
Monasteranenagh in county Limerick (Ibid LXIX., 17-52, LXVIIL, 
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 Malby's severity was a chief cause 
of his rebellion (Ibid LXIX., 70; LXXVIL, 52). 

On the arrival of the Earl of Ormonde in November with a 
commission to command the army in Munster, Malby 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 Munster 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 garri- 
son at Bunishoole (Ibid LXXII.. 39). During the siege of Carrig- 
foyle, Malby assisted the operations of the lord justice, Sir William 
Pelham (q. v.) with supplies from Connaught (Cal. Carew M. S. S., 
II., 238). In August O'Rourke. animated by the expectation of 
foreign assistance, rebelled and dismantled the castle of Leitrim. 
Malby 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 Fra^h MacHugh O'Byrne 
(q. V.) he witnessed the disastrous defeat of the English forces at 
Glenmalure (State Papers, Ireland, Eliz. LXXY., 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 LXXVL, 15 ; Cal. 
Carew M. S. S.. II., 3T0). To those who complained that he used 
the sword too sharply 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. LXXVIL, 54) but a new dano-er instantly presented it- 
self in the rebellion of lohn and Ulick Burke, who, at the instigation 


of the catholic bishop of Kihnacduagls. had proclaimed a religious 
war. and were making wild efiforts to relieve the Spaniards at Lim- 
erick (Ibid LXXVIIL. 41). 

Even after the capture of Limerick the situation was sufficiently 
alarming to cause Grey to send reinforcements to Malby (Ibid 
LXXVIIL, 59) 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 Malby sent Captain Brabazon 
against him, and O'Rourke at once sued for peace (Cal Carew M. S. 
S., II., 320). Toward the end of February a body of six hundred 
Scots invaded the province to co-operate with the Burkes, but Malby 
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 MacWilliam to the former, 
and making the latter the sheriff of the county of Mayo. (See 
Malbv's graphic description of his journey in State Papers, Ireland, 
Eliz. "LXXXL, 421 ; and also in Colton M. S. S., Titus, B. XIII. ff. 

Important as were his services, it was grievous. Grey com- 
plained, to see good Sir Nicholas Alalby so thanklessly used (State 
Papers Ireland, Eliz. LXXXIL, 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 LXXXVIIL, 10) but on the outbreak 
of hostilities between Turlough Linneach O'Neill 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, 
effected a junction with the lord deputy (Ibid LXXXV., 47; Annals 
of Loch Ce LL., 441). Towards the close of November 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 MacWilliam, had remained tranquil. Early in July, however. 
Con O'Donnell, at the instigation of Turlough Linneach, invaded 
Sligo. Malby complained that the order forbidding 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 Malby'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 Hfetime to disturb the 
peace of his government. 

The fear of Malby, wrote Bonraby Gooche to Burghley in 
March, 1583, keeps all in good order, his "common dalliance" is 
"veni, vidi, vici." (Ibid C, 14.) 

But he was deeply wounded by Elizabeth'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 
March, 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, II., 
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 

Alalby married 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 November 1602, while serving in Connaught. 
and a daughter, Ursula, who was married to Anthony Brabazon 
(Irish Pedigrees, Harl. M. S. 1425, f. 157). Lady Malby subse- 
quently married one George Rawe.

Note. — 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 vSir Nicholas Malby, who is said to have married 
Elizabeth, granddaughter of Sir Francis Jobson? 


A descendant writes that some }'ears ago she read in a news- 
paper under the EngHsh correspondence that Dilhon, the great Irish 
leader, was to speak at Great Alaltby — suggesting that there were 
tw^o towns of Maltby. Possibly Great ]\Ialtby is in Ireland. North- 
west of Limerick the map of Ireland shows ]\Ial Bay. This may 
have been so named long before Sir Nicholas ]\Ialby was born, but 
il would be interesting to know certainly, as it seems not unlikely 
the bay was named for Sir Nicholas. 


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

"Sir Nicholas Malby, governor of the province of Connaught, 
died in Athlone, about Shrovetide ; he w^as a man learned in 
languages and the tongues of the islands of Western 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 Roscommon and Beal-atha-na-Sleiaig- 
headh (Ballinasloe in Gal way) 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." 

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

Yorkshire — Ireland 

Arms: Malby (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 Maltl)y 

It is quite evident from these arms that Sir Nicholas ]\Ialby believed 
himself to be descended from the Maltbys 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 JNIay. 
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 :\lalbv 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 Sheriits of London. Reprieve for 

Tho. Borough and Nicholas Malby who are to be delivered over 

to the Earl of Warwick for service abroad." (Cal. State Papers, 

Dom., edit. Lemon.) 
1573. N. Malbie has Leach in his family. 
1576. Knighted at Athlone, by Sir Henry Sidney, 7 Oct., 1576.* 

(Vide p. 207, Metcalfe's Book of Knights and p. yj, Shaw's 

Book of Knights.) 

1578. July 7. Sir Nicholas Malbie had Roscommon and Athlone. 
(Vol. XCL, Irish State Papers.) 

1575. Sir Nicholas Malby is referred to as Mr. Maltbie by Lord 
Burghley in 1575. (Vide p. 480, Carew M. S. S., edit. Brewer 
and Bullen.) 

1579. In 1579 Capt or Sir Nicholas Malby returned to Ireland 
with great presents from the Sovereign. (From the Annals of 
the Four Masters.)

"rear accounts" and be discharged. One page Indorsed, 20 
March. 1579, with abstract. (Domestic Eliz. \'ol. CXXX., No. 
10. Cal. p. 620.) 

Note. — Sir Nicholas Alalby 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. 25. Athlone, Ireland. Sir Nicholas jMalbie 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 Alaltby who made his will in May, 1532. That Sir Nicholas 
had a brother we know. See under date May, 1582. 

1579. President of Connaught, 1579; Leix in Ireland. (State

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. 


1582. July 12. Sir Hugh O'Connell's joy at Sir Nicholas ^^lalby's

His son lately in hard case. 

1582. Vol. XCI., Irish State Papers, anno 1582, April 30, has a 
paper giving names of certain persons to be examined touching 
Sir Nicholas Malbie. On this paper is a pedigree of Sir 
Nicholas Malby by Durgley, showing connection by marriage 
with Robert Lamb of Leeds and Robert Castell of East Hatley, 
near Potton in Cambridgeshire. 

Note. — 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.

John Marburie, Robert Ffowler and John Brown, gentlemen. 

Note. — Was this John, brother of Sir Nicholas? See under date 1590. 
This note is interesting as it contains the names of three well known emi- 
grant families to New England. John 3ilaltby of Alilford and New Haven; 

Francis Brown, John being a family given name, and Robert Fowler of .

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

Note. — Mr. Harte writes me that this is recognized as an authentic 

New settlers in Linconell in Pynnar's Surrey, 1619 A. D., men- 
tions Sir George Marburie. 

The following item is obviously under a wrons: date. It is from 
Ms. Gen. et Herald, Vol. II., 1867-8, p. 174, and reads: "Thomas 
Onsesbv, living in 1569, m. a dau. of Henry Malby, son of Sir 
Nicholas. They had a son Malby Orsby and a great-grandson 
Malby Orsby. 

1638. Abstract of the Will of Sir George Maltbie, Kt., dated 6 
Dec. 1638. I confirm the agreement with James Frese concern- 


ing the redemption of my estate out of the hands of Lord Rane- 
lage. Burial at S. Dunstan's in the west and iioo to be spent.

of Sir George Maltbie, of S. Brides, Fleet Street for that no 
exor. was nominated. loi Harvey. 

1640. II May. Petition of John Poulett and Sarah, his wife, sister 
and heiress to Sir George Maltby, Kt., dec. to the King. Queen 
Elizabeth gave to Sir Nicholas Maltby, petitioner's grandfather, 
in lieu of his services in reducing Connaught, the Manor of Ros- 
common in the said province. It descended to his son, Captain 
Henry Maltby, petitioner's father, who was slain in the service 
of the Crown in 1602; and then to her brother, Sir George 
Maltby, who mortgaged it to Viscount Ranelagh, with right of 
redemption ; but when Sir George had secured means to redeem 
it, Lord Ranelagh refused to reconvey the lands ; the said Sir 
George coming to England to sue for relief was unjustly im- 
prisoned by one Luke Nightengale and died in great misery 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 Ranelagh before 
them. Also that Lord Ranelagh grant may be stayed. Reference 
to the Lord Lieutenant and order for stay of grant. (Printed 
State Papers, p. 749.) 

1649. Samuel Maltby served in Army in Ireland since 1649, ""^ 
Captain Richard Franklin's Troop of Lord Deputy Fleetwood's 
Regiment. Since 1649 (to 1662 ?). (p. 657. Cal. State Papers, 
Ireland, 1660-1662, edit, by Mahaffy.) 

This note is of interest, being a Samuel Maltby contemporary with the 
emigrant William Maltby 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 ^lahaffy, p. 352. 
says: "Queen Elizabeth by letters dated 2 June, 21st year of her 
reign [1579] granted to Sir Nicholas ]\Ialthby (Maltby) Kt., 
Manor 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 Middop. The inter- 
est of Sir George Malthby and his heirs did not expire until 1639." 
Repudiated in 1665. (Vide p. 600, Cal. State Papers. Ireland, 
1663-65, edit. Mahaffy.) 
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 Maltby, 
the emigrant, in New 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 New 
England Maltby s 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 Peerage of Ireland by Lodge, Vol. 4, p. 234, says "and 
left Sir Nicholas Malby, Gov. of Connaught, possessed of the house 
of Roscommon and Athlone." 

O'Hart's Irish Pedigree, Imolments of the Diocese of Innocents, 
gives "James Malby," no date. 

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

Sir Maltby and Lady Crofton at their country home in Sligo." 

In connection with the above newspaper clipping, it may be 

well to give the following pedigree from Harleian Soc. Pub.. 1903, 

p. 690. Lincolnshire Visit. : 

Morgan of Gainsborough 

1 Morice Morgan m. Elizabeth, dau. of Wm. Forman of Gains- 
borough, yeom., sister of Sir Wm. Forman. the Lord iNTayor 
of London, in 1538. 

2 Richard Morgan m. Margaret, dau. of ■ — ]>klaltby. 

Arms: Arg. on a fess engrailed gules, 3 garbs or. (See arms 
of Sir Nicholas Malby and Marbury of London.) 

3 William Morgan. 

There is a space of two hundred years between this luarriage 
of Richard Morgan and Margaret Maltby, to Lady Morgan who 
visited Sir Maltby and Lady Crofton, yet it is of interest as the 
genealogist finds that of a truth history repeats itself, and where 
cue 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 PedigTees by O'Hart, Vol. II., has this statement: 
"According to the M. S. Vols. F-3, 23; F-3, 27, 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 Aialby. 

in Bagwell's Ireland, the Index gives: "MALTBY, 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;^^ we find: "Maltby, a man of ability and discretion." Page 245 
states : "great praise is due to Captain Piers and Captain Maltby for 
their ability and diligence." Again we find, p. 93 : "Maltby refused 
ii,ooo for the prisoner's life, and a like sum for that of Tirlogh 
O'Brien, a noted rebel." 

Note. — i2,000 was a considerable fortune in the time of Sir Nicholas 

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

XoTE. — The record concerning Sir Nicholas ]Malby 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 Maltbys in any way con- 
nected with Ireland. 

1 28 1. John le Mareschel going beyond seas nominating Robert de 
Alalteby and Pltigh le Cressingham his attorneys in Ireland for

Since these pages were written we have learned of an Irish 

branch of the family, but there was not sufficient time to obtain 

records from Ireland, consequently we can only print what data 

]\Ir. William H. Maultby had available. 



Tradition : "Forefathers went to Ireland with Oliver Crom- 
well's armv, 1649- 1650." Xote — This ancestor ma\- very possibly 
have been Samuel ^laltby, who served in the Army in Ireland 
since 1649. See under that date. 

1. Arthur Warner ]\Iaultby 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 Maultby (a cousin of William H. Maultby 
who furnished these records) received the appointment and 
was holding the office a few years ago, and very probably is 
still doing so. 

Children 6f Arthur Warner Maultby were: Joseph, Wil- 
liam H. (emigrated about 1831-32), John. Peter, Arthur War- 
ner and Henrv. 

2. William H. ^Niaultby. emigrated to the States about 1831-2. 
He went first to A'ermont (probably to Washington County). 
Shortly after 1835 he removed to Landsingburg. Renssellear 
County. N. Y.. and later moved to Sheboygan County, Mich. 
He was prominent in the county, being one of the chief or- 
ganizers and held the office of County Clerk and also that of 
Judge of Probate. 

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


brother, William H,, for a while. He died at Waterford, Al- 
bany County, N. Y. 

Peter (2) Maultby, another brother, emigrated about 1840 
( ?). Resided at Landsingburg for a time. Removed to Boon- 
ville, Mo., 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 Vermont with his brother William H. 
]\Iaultby, for a short while, then removed to Landsingburg. 
Rensselear County, N. Y. Here he met an English lady from 
near Ipswich, Eng., Mary Ann Scace, and married her. Both 
died some years ago. Their son is : 

3. William H. Maultby, b. Aug. i, 1838. at Landsingburg. About 
the year 1840 they removed to Highland on the Hudson. Pres- 
ent address is : Grand Valley, Pennsylvania.

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- 
tory of the estate of Samuel Maltby (2), son of the emigrant Wil- 
liam Maltby, is found the mention of a "coat-of-arms." Various 
mottoes are used : "Virtus sub pondere crescit," being that used by 
the descendants of Col. Stephen (4) ]\Ialtby and the descendants 
of his older brother. Gen. Isaac (4) use "Quod serveus metes."

Pedigrkk NL 

Maltby of Orston 

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


Brough Alaltby has a fine old seal bearing the above arms, which has 
come down to him from many generations of ancestors, ]Mr. Brough 
Maltby being the head of his House of Maltby. 

While in London some years ago the compiler had the pleasure 
of meeting Mr. and Mrs. Maltby and their son, Brough Maltby, 
junior, and seing some fine old ancestral portraits both of the Malt- 
bys and Broughs which hang in his dining room and along the 
stairway. The portraits of those with Maltby blood are instantly 
recognizable by the resemblance borne to the Maltbys 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, x\ugust 19, 1907, and now of New York 
City. ]Mr. Blake's wife is a descendant of William ]\Ialtby of Orston. 
Various items have been added by the present compiler, many of 
them being records copied from the Shelton Registers by Mr. 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 Mr. Blake's lettering of generations, in order to conform 
as far as possible to the same style used in all the pedigrees given 
in this book. 


I. I. WILLLAM Maltby, gent., b. in 1641 : m. at St. Michael 
and All Saints, Shelton Parish in 1682, Oct. 31, Jane, dau. of Mr. 
George Brough of Shelton, Nottingham, Eng. (Shelton Record:

and Jane Brough.) William Maltby d. i Nov., 17 18, at 

Orston. Notts, and his wid. d. 3 Nov., 1724. (It is possible that 

William Maltby. b. 1641. was a son of John and Mary 

Maltby of Orston. See under date 1639 and observe the names of 
the children.) In 1670 we find Ezekiel Diglyn, parson of Orston, 
speaking of "William Maltby, the elder, of Orston." This may 
mean that he was the father of William, b. 1641, or it mav onlv 
refer to him as of an older generation. 

The record of William Maltby's death reads: "1718, at Ors- 
ton, William Maltby, gent. Sepult. Oct. ve 4th." We find his 
AVill in the P. C. Y. 1718-19, 7y2oy. We give an abstract below:

IV. sy. WILLIA:\I Maltby-Bibliographer. The following ac- 
count is from the Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. XXXV., 
p. 442 : 

IV. 45. ELIZABETH Maltby, b. — ; m. Sir George Prety- 
man Tomline. For a full account of Sir George see Vol. LVII., p. 
14, Nat. ®og. Diet. Sir George Pretyman. b. Oct. 9, 1750; d. 
Nov. 14, 1827, was the son of George Pretyman of Bury 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 Gennans, 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. Jackson, 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 ]\Ialtby, 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 Maltby were : 

V. 70. William" (5) Edward Tomline,' M. P. for Truro. 
V. 71. George (5) Thomas Pretyman. chancellor of 

Lincoln and prebendary of Winchester. 
V. /2. Richard (5) Pretyman, precenter of Lincoln. 

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

William Maltry — Bibliographer — 1763- 1854 

"Maltby. William ( 1763-1854) bibliographer, b. in London, on 
17 January, 1763, was the youngest of the ten children of Brou^h 
Maltby. a wholesale draper of Mansion House Street. Edward 
Maltby (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 Maltby, formerly clerk of the 
Fishmongers' Company. On 23 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 Yard, 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 by his old friend Rogers. 

Maltby contributed to "Recollections of the Table Talk of Sam- 
uel Rogers," by the Rev. A. Dyee, 1856, an appendix entitled "Por- 
soniana," pp. 295-334. 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) Maltby, b. 1763. According to 
Burke's Landed Gentry, Vol. III., p. 85. Harriet Maltby 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 "Modern English 
Biography," Boase, Vol. II., IV., is given the following item: 
"Maltby, 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) Maltby 
whose record I give, was a nepheiv of Bishop Edward Maltby, and from the 
names I have placed him as a son of Thomas (4), though it is quite prob- 
able that he was a son of one of the other brothers. However we give: 


V. JT^. William (5) Maltby, older brother. 
V. 74. Thomas (5) Colton Maltby, b. Sept. 22, 18 14. 
(Son of above?) 
W. 49. GEORGE (4) Maltby, b. Sept. 26, 1765. He d. 
Thursday, Sept. 17, 1807, ae. 42, from an accident near Baltimore. 
^Maryland, U. S. A. A stone was erected to his memory. If he left 
aescendants is unknown to the compiler. 

\\. 50. CHARLES (4) Maltby, b. Jan. 17, 1767; d. on a pas- 
sage from Hamburg, Oct. 26, 1800, ae. 33. He was buried at Har-

memory of the late Archdeacon Brough ^laltby, 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 North Chapel of the Choir. One to Mary Maltby, 
who d. Dec. 4, 1890 (See VI., 92) ; one to Frances Caroline IMaltby 
who d. Alay 5, 1904 ; the third is not stated in the "Newark Adver- 
tiser." from which we quote. The inscription under the fourth 
window reads : "Ad Dei gloriam in memory of Brough Alaltby. 
Archidiaconi de Nottingham, Canonici Lincoln, Vicarri de Farndon. 
Dui obitapod Farndon iii Kal. April A. D., AIDCCCXCIV, annos 
natus LXVIII. Cujus animee propetietur Deus." The dedication 
service was conducted by the Rev. Canon C. Gray of West Retford.

Coll., Cambridge. Took holy orders in 1580 ; his first Nott. cur. was

In concluding these genealogical notes of the Orston Maltbys 
I wish to acknowledge the help given by Mr. Edward C. Harte, who 
kindly 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. March 10. Robert Maltbye of Orston. Will proved. 
1582. John Maltbie m. Elizabeth Greaves. 

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


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

Another item under date 1670 speaks of "William Maltby, 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 1710 John Alaltby m. Anne Kirk at Orston. She d 1721.

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

In 1779, Maltby 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 Norwich; 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 Maltby, entered him at Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, where 
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; M. 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). 

Maltby's Greek scholarship is conspicuous in many 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 University (charter granted June, 1837), to 
which he ultimately left his valuable library. He was also a senator 
of the London L^niversity, and a fellow of the Royal and Antiquarian 

In politics and in educational matters his views were of the old 
Whig tvpe. His liberality of action was sometimes misconstrued. 
In 1838 he was present with Bishop Stanley of Norwich at the 
meeting of the British Association in Newcastle-on-Thyne. While 
there, both Maltby and Stanley subscribed to a forthcoming volume 
of sermons by William Turner (1761-1859, q.v.) a local Unitarian 


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 Alaltby 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. 
Maltby'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. 

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

His chief classical publication was "Lexicon Graeco-prosodiacum 
. . . correxit . . . auxit. et Graecis vocibus Latinam versionem 
subjecit Edw. Maltby," Sc. Cambridge, 181 5, 4to ; 2nd edit. 1824, 4to. 
This work was based on Thomas Morell's Thesawrus," Eton, 1762, 
4to. An abridgment appeared as "A New and Complete Greek 
Gradus," Sc. 1830, 8vo; 2nd edit. 1840, 8vo; 3rd edit., edited by 
John Grabham, 1851, 8vo. IMaltby contributed notes on Euripides 
to Duncan's edition, Glasgow, 1821, 8vo ; 9 vols. 

Besides single sermons (1806-35), charges (1835-53), and 
tracts, he published: i. "Illustrations of the Truth of the Christian 
ReHgion," Cambridge, 1802, 8vo; 2nd edit.. 1803, 8vo ; 3rd edit, 1803,

In the Print Room at the British Museum 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 by the writer. 
There are two Book Plates of Edward Maltby, evidently the Bishop, 
as follows : 

Edward Maltby, D.D., No. 19573. — Arg. 3 wheat sheaves on a 
bend gules, quartering Beaumont (az. a lion rampant between 8 
fleur de lys) and impaling Green (or. on a chief indented gules 3 
crescents). Crest: A wheat sheaf. Motto: Nil sine Lahore. 

The other plate is: Edward Maltby, D.D., F.R.S., F.S.A.— Arg. 
on a bend gules 3 wheat sheaves ; a lion ramp, in sinister chief and 
a cross in base impaling az. 3 harts tripp ; or. for Green. Crest : A 
wheat sheaf charged with a cross between 2 branches. Motto : Nil 
sine labore. 

An English correspondent who was kind enough to furnish the 
above data writes : "From these I gather that when Edward ]\Ialtby 
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 — implying that he married a Miss Green." 

According to genealogical data in possession of the secretary 
Edward Maltby m. a Miss Harvey. He was the son of George and 
Mary (Fearman) Alaltby, grandson of Thomas and Elizabeth 
(Taylor) ^Nlaltby and great-grandson of William 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 Maltby made application to the 
Heralds' College, London, in 1829, for grant of arms, and mentions 
that his family came originally from Yorkshire. He undoubtedly 
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. Mr. 
Edwin M. 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 Miscellanea Genealogica et Heroldica, Series II., 
Vol. I., 1886, p. 81 : "Grant of Arms to Rev. Edward Maltby, D.D , 
1829. To all and singular to whom these presents shall come, Sir 
George Mayler, 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 Maltby, 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 Maltby in the 
county of York, 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 accordin^jly 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 July in the 
tenth year in the reign of our Sovereign Lord George, the Fourth, 
by the Grace of God of the United 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 Maltby, Esq., are entitled to bear 
similar arms "with a difference," etc. 

The coat-of-arms used originally by Bishop Maltby 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 Maltby descends from the 
oldest son (who had issue) of William and Jane Brough Maltby, 
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 that 
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 Maulsby Genealogy. Miss Barnard 
has gone so thoroughly into the history of this family that we here 
give only the early generations. 


I. I. WILLIAM Aloltby of Orston, Notts, m. Mary Roades 
of Ripley, Derby, 5 m. 9th, 1689. ( She, dau. of John and Ehzabeth

II. 7. David Maltby, b. i mo. 20, 1699-1700, in Philadel- 
phia, Pa. 

The following are a few extracts from the Alaulsby Genealogy. 
It is difficult to figure whether the notes deal with the above William 
Maltby, Quaker, who was probably b. about 1660, or with William 
Maltby b. in 1641. The items are: 

p. 33. "Alay 28, 1676, William Maultby, of Orston, for a meeting 
held at Rowland Dabenney's house." 

p. 34. "28 3rd m., 1676, William Maulby of Orston." 
"William Maulsby." 
"Oct., 1685, Richard Malsby." 
"1694. William Maultby of Eastwood, Notts. 

p. 35. "Lies body of Elizabeth Maltby, d. Oct. 29, 1754, ae. 29." 
(hence b. in 1725). 

"Body John Alaltby, d. May 9, 1762, ae. 8o."( hence b. in 1682). 
"Elinor Maltby, w. of William Maltby, d. March 5, 1763, ae. 29." 
(hence b. in 1734). 

"Mary Maltby, w. of John Alaltby, d. June 24. 1769, ae. 54." 
(hence b. in 1715). 

"John Maltby, d. Aug. 4, 1781, ae. 69." (hence b. in 1712). 
"William Maltby, d. Oct. 26, 1783, ae. 68," (hence b. in 1715). 
This is probably the William, son of John Maltby, bapt. in 1714. 
"George Maltby, d. May 24, 1846, in 96th year." (hence b. 1750). 
(Think he was a son of John and Mary Maltb}'.)

Pedigree XIII. 

Maltby of Scarborough, Yorkshire 

Arms : Quart, or. and arg. p party per fess indented. Crest : A 
Wyren. Motto : Fear God in Life. 

This coat of arms has been in the family for many generations 
and was always presumed to be a Maltby coat-of-arms. A corre- 
spondent in England writes : "This is not a Maltby 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 Maltby. They traced their ancestry back to John 
Maltby, b. Sept. 12. 1712, and the above arms were in the family. 
Further than this they had not attem])ted to trace. Through the 
Maltby 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 ^vorth noting in connection with tlie fol- 
lowing: "William Maltby left home in New York state, after unmerited 
punisliment. He was finely educated, and often spoke of Rochester, N. Y. 
At one time he encountered some relatives in a shop in Cincinnati, but 
he did not make himself known. He liad a sister Mary, for when his oldest 
daugliter was born he wished her named for a dear sister. He named liis 
other children Clayton, George, Ellen and Anna. In 1S40 Mr. Maltby settled 
in Madison Ind. He taught school as a young man; was a Pres. and a 
great abolitionist. He m. in 1850 and d. in 1861." For years we have tried 
to connect this William Maltby with 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 
IV.-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 Maltby coat. 


I. I. WILLIAM Maltby of Scarborough, Yorkshire; m. be- 
fore 1712. He had: 

II. 2. JOHN Maltby, "bapt. Sept. 5, 1712, 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. Mary 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, Vicar 
and Rural Dean of Scarborough. Children : 

III. 3. "1739, Oct. 19, Mary, dau. of John and Mary 
Maltby, Sept. y 21." (The last date is b. the first 

III. 4. "1741, Sept. 24. William, son of John and Mary

y 9th (1742)." 
HI. 6. "1745, Sept. 21, Dickinson, son of John and Mary 

Maltby. b. Sept. y 3rd."

Maltby, May loth." 
HI. 8. "1750, Aug. 23, Isabel, dau. of John and Mary 
HI. 3. MARY Maltby, b. Sept. 27, 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. JOHN Maltby, b. Dec. 9, 1742: bapt. Jan. 4, 1743, at 
Scarborough. Yorks ; m. June 3, 1765, at York to Margaret Addison, 
wid. of George Addison, Esq., of Whitby. Yorks. (She was prob- 
ably Margaret Dent, as thev name a child William Dent.) Children : 

IV. 10. Thomas Maltbv, b. Oct. 12, 1766. 
IV. II. Marg^aret Maltby, b. Aug. 30, 1767. 

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


John Maltby evidently died between 1769 and 1775, as we find: 
"Margaret, wid. of John Maltby, m. William Robinson at Scar- 
borough and had children: George Robinson, b. Aug. 17, 1775; 
Mary Robinson, b. July 2, 1777; Isabella Robinson, b. July 6, 1780. 

The following item evidently applies to the above John Alaltby 
and his older brother William, whose line is not carried out : A let- 
ter dated July 29th, 1883, from B. Wilkinson of 17 Elm wood Street. 
Durham Road, Sunderland, to R. L. Maltby, 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 Maltbys, 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 Maltby." (It is worth noting 
that in the inventory of the estate of Daniel (2) Maltby of New 
England, there is mention of "One sealskin chair." Daniel Maltby

This John Alaltby moved from Scarborough, Yorkshire to 
Sunderland, Durham Co., and taught school there for years. Lieut. 
Col. Richard Leighton Maltby 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. THOMAS Maltby "was born" the 12th of October, 
between the hours of 12 and i on the Sunday morning in the year 
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, England, 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 missing 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." Mrs. Orr, to whom Mrs. Browne sent her 
copy, forwarded it to the compiler. 

Mrs. Orr writes : "Thomas Maltby was a master mariner or sea 
captain who sailed out of Scarboro. This Thomas Maltby was mas- 
ter of a vessel carrying coals up the Baltic during the Napolian 
wars and was taken as a prisoner of war in the year 1807 while try- 
ing to run a blockade. He was in prison seven years and while 
thus confined. taus:ht navigation to the other prisoners. We have a 
letter written by him in 181 2 to his wife and family who were then 
living in Sunderland, Durham County, EnHand." " 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."

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

V. 14. THO]\IAS Baker :Maltby "was born June 17th, 1792, 
at a quarter before six o'clock of the Sunday morning, in Scarboro, 
Yorkshire, England." J\lrs. 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, Alonday morn- 
ing, at half past 9 o'clock, Thos. Baker Alaltby sailed from Sunder- 
land as an emigrant for Quebec, with his w. ^Margaret and dau. 
Mary Ann, ae. one month and two days' (This is crossed out and

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

It is \\\\\\ the deepest regret that we have to record the death 
of Col. Maltby of Newcastle, New Brunswick. 

Col. Maltby had been a member of the 12th Newcastle Field 
Battery for nearly forty years, having risen from the rank of gun- 
ner to that of commanding officer. Upon the outbreak of the pres- 
ent European war. Col. Maltby was most anxious to enlist for active 
service, but being 59 years of age, it was impossible for him to 
be accepted by the Department of Militia. He was, however, made 
recruiting officer for the district. It was while in pursuit 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. ^Maltby was a member, was most impressive, the casket 

(See :Maltby Pedigree of Scarborough) 



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

Col. Maltby leaves a widow, one daughter. Mrs. Orr, now at 
the front as a Red Cross nurse and one son. Air. H. M. R. ]\Ialtbv. 

Pedigree; XIV. 

Maltby 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. 

Motto: 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 "Alaltby — Essex,'' with the difference 
that the bugle horn is argent instead of or. 

Mr. Ernest Maltby, 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 
and whose motto is "Free for a Blast," this being the only homage 
in the 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 winding a horn. Motto : Free for a blast. "Evidently 
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 bugle horns 
sable ; garnished ar. Crest : A rose ar. barbed vert. 

Note. — 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. Rlaltby. 


I. I. CHRISTOPHER Maltby of Northallerton. Yorkshire, 
had wife Mary Foxton. The clerk of the church who consulted the 
register informs me that there were older IMaltbv records on the 


registers and he observed the name of Foxton several times while 
searching for the birth of Thomas (2) Maltby. 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." 

Aliss Henrietta Maltby 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 North Riding, near 
Ripon, York.) 

Note. — Christopher Maltby probably had a younger brother named 
Thomas, as the clerk informs me that he found the baptism of William, son 
of Thomas Maltbv of the King's First Regiment of Dragoons; he was bapt. 
March 2X 1777. 

How many children Christopher may have had is not known 
to me. An old diary (a copy of which Mr. Maltby loaned the com- 
piler), written by Henrietta Maltby, 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 brothers and 
sisters had preceded him, but one alone of them, Christopher, lived 
within the scope of my memory. He w^as mucli 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 by birth a Foxton, and it is from her we have the bugle 
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 Maltby 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 gave it away ! 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. : 

Nevis, W. I., 1800. "West Indian Deeds on the Close Rolls, 
London, is orie of Butler Claxton by Thomas Maltby, Henrietta, 
his wife; Nevis, 1800, 7, 13, 14. 15. 16." 

. The second item reads : "Barbodoes Mercury, W. I. Died. 
Richard Maltby, Esq., of Bridgetown, Barbadoes within a few days 
of Sept. 14, 1816. Mrs. Maltby. his w., d. the morning of March 

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: 

II. 2. Christopher Maltby. b ? Settled in London. 

II. 3. Thomas Maltby, 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 gentlemanly, 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 Maltby, bapt. July 26, 1752, at Northaller- 
ton, York, m. at St. Swithin's, London, May 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 Nevis, W. I. deed in 1800. 

Henrietta Maltby in her memoirs writes: "I 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 
A^lonastican 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 opportunity to make inquiries about 
the Maltbys of North Allerton. The result of his inquiry was his 
hearing that though not coming under what it is the fashion of our 
time to call 'the untitled nobility of the country.' the Maltbys were 
a respectable race of small landed proprietors in Yorkshire — the 
class, I fancy, whose younger sons formed the ranks of the formid- 
able cross-bowmen of the times of the Plantagenets ; and still more 
redoubtable Ironsides of Cromwell's more recent period. ]\Ien who 
could equip themselves with horses and arms and were ready to 
follow fame or fortune wherever their proverbial Yorkshire 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 Yule log, the 
family gatherings round it and all his youthful happiness at those 
joyful seasons, when like the Vicar of Wakefield'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 Maltby connections from good and bad marriages 
and other causes must have included persons holding very different 
positions in its society." Thomas Maltby's widowed mother married 
the bailiff and Thomas left home for all time when only 14. Mis 
Henrietta Maltby 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 Mr. 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. 

II. 3. Air. THO:\IAS Maltby was a very able merchant and 
private banker of Harley Street, and owned a very fine country 
seat at Walthanston in Essex. He practically 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 Mr. 
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 Martin Archer Shee, Presi- 
dent of the Royal Academy, 1803-5 (I believe), he painted two grand 
pictures, one of Mr. Maltby. which we reproduce in this book, and 
one of his wife with their daughter Ellen, then a little girl. Mr. 
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. ]\Ialtby is buried 
at Shelton. Xotts. He had eight sons and eight daughters.

his brothers, were educated at Winchester College. He entered Win- 
chester in 1826, and went to Haileyburg College (which was in those 
days the training college for the India Civil Service) in 1829, and 
in 1832 he went out to India. Mr. Maltby m. Jane Pennycuick at 
Betchworth, Surrey, on October 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 Chillian wallah in the Punjaub of India during the Second 
Sikt War, and who fell gloriously on January 15, 1849, when the 
famous 24th 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. Mr. Ernest Maltby says : "My 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, Sir William Napier, 
whose brother. Sir Charles Napier, 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 Alaltby 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 William Dennison, the then Governor, was Acting Mceroy of 
India at Calcutta. 

On his retirement Air. Alaltby was offered a knighthood which 
he declined. He had eleven children, Mr. Ernest Alaltby being the 
youngest and also a seventh son. All but one of the sons were edu- 
cated at Cheltenham College in Gloucestershire. England. Children :

The following is a copy of the grant of arms to this family which 
we have called "of North Allerton" but from the wording of this 
document it is evident that Christopher Maltby originally came 
from Maltby in Cleveland, and only in his later years resided in 
North Allerton. This is a very important discovery and will be 
followed up by this branch of the family. 


To whom these Presents shall come Sir Isaac Heard. Knight 
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 greeting: 

Whereas, Thomas Maltby of Chatham Square in the City of 
London and of Bleackheath in the Parish of Lewisham in the County 
of Kent, Esquire, hath represented unto the Most Noble Charles, 
Duke of Norfolk, Earl Marshall and Hereditary Marshal of Eng- 
land, that he has always understood and believed that his ancestors 
came from Maltby in Cleveland in the North Riding of the Countv 
of York, but being unable to trace a regular descent from the 
family of that name whose pedigree was entered at the Heralds 
Visitation of Yorkshire, made in 1613. 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 
borne by him and his descendants and by the descendants of his 
late father, Christopher Maltby, formerly of Maltby aforesaid but 
last of North Allerton in the County of York, deceased. 

And forasmuch as the said Earl Marshal did by warrant under 
his Hand and Seal bearing date the nineteenth day of September 
instant, authorize and direct us to devise, grant and assign such 
armorial ensigns accordingly. Know ye therefore that we. the said 
Garter and Clauenceux in pursuance 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 
Britain have decided and do by these Presents grant and assign 
to the said Thomas Maltby, Esquire, the Arms following; that is 
to say, Argent on a bend gules between two cotises engrailed of 
the second a bugle horn stringed of the field between two garbs or 
a crescent for dififerenec. And for the Crest on a wreath of the 
colours, a garb or banded azure and prendant therefrom a bugle 
horn sable stringed blue differenced as the Arms, as the same are 
in the margin hereof more plainly depicted to be borne and used 


forever hereafter by him, the said Thomas Maltby, Esquire and 
his descendants and by the descendants of his late father, Chris- 
topher Maltby with due and proper differences according to the 
laws of Arms without the let or interruption of any Person or Per- 
sons whatsoever. 

In witness whereof. We, the said Garter and Clauenceux Kings 
of Arms, have to these Presents subscribed our Names and affixed 
the Seals of our several offices, this twenty-third day of Septem- 
ber, in the thirty-ninth year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord 
George the Third, by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, 
France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, etc., and in the year of 
Our Lord, one thousand and seven hundred and ninety-nine.

Note — The original motto was : Opes Parit Industria, but Mrs. Wells 
writes that her family 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 Infestis 
(There is hope in adversity). 

SuppLEMivNTARY Notes Pedigree XIV. 

Recent letters from Mrs. Sydney Wells of 12 Linden Road, 
Bedford, England, give many more items of interest of this branch 
of the family. 

II. 2. Christopher Maltby settled in London when his brother 
Thomas was but a boy. He m. Miss Sedgwick. They had children, 
but no information concerning them is available. One of the daugh- 
ters married an Italian named Gabrielli (London artist probably) 
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. 
Freeling, lead merchant, after which he formed a connection with 
the firm of Walker. He resided first at Red Bull Wharf. Thames 
Street, then at Blackheath, having a winter residence at Chatham 
Place. In 1807, they moved to Plaiston Lodge and afterwards to 
Walthanston in 181 3. In June, 1823 to 1833, they resided at Upper 
Harley Street. 



Maltby — Hovcringhmii, Mansfield, Xottiiighamshirc 

Mr. Harte of \\^ells, Somerset, whose wife is Clara Jane Maltby 
of this pedigree, and to whom I am indebted for data of this branch 
of the family, writes me that "in all probability the Maltbys of 
jMansfield descend from Robert Alaltby of Orston." Mr. Harte 
further states : "I understand that some of the Maltbys 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?) ]\Ialtby, date early 1600. The church 
has in recent years been restored." 

The earliest Hoveringham record at hand is that of the will of 
Hugh jMaultby proved in 1698-9. He 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 following record which 
evidently refers to the above Hugh Maltby : "Hugh Maultby of 
Hoveringham, Notts, and Mary Gibson of Cosall, Notts, m. (license) 
25 Feby., 1660." A'ery possibly he was the Hugh Maltby b. at 
Orston in 1636, son of John and ]ylary ]Maltby. 

We begin this Pedigree with : 

I. I. Maltby. He had a son:

bray, a kinswoman of Lord Mowbray, at Hoveringham, Nov., 1749.

Race Course, Nottingham, and laterly at Forest Hill. London, where 

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

solicitor of Nottingham. (Is this the Arthur Maltby mentioned in 
the New York Herald in about the year 1906.) It speaks of him 
as a London author, who addressed the Metropolitan Psychical So- 
ciety. 'T may tell you," he says, "that I 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 paralyzed 
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. On my apologizing to the unknown 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. Alaltby does not believe in automatic 
writing, yet had experiences which led him to ask an opinion of 
what had occured of the Metropolitan Psychical Society. The above 
item may not apply to the Arthur Alaltby of Forest Hill, London, 
but it would seem likely. The children of Arthur Alaltby (I\'. 8) 
were : 

V. 2j. Harold Maltby. 

V. 28. Katie Maltby, m. of Bradford. 

V. 29. Sophie Maltby, m. and had five children.

1800; m. Oct. 21, 1822, Mary, dau. of Rev. Canon Parsons, Canon 
of Lincoln, Rector of S}'ston and Revesby. He d. circ. 1848, and 
was buried at Hoveringham. At one time of Pleasley, Notts. He 
was of Westfield, Mansfield. Children :

Derby, b. April 4, 1829; m. Sarah or Eliza Hardwick. He d. April 
16, 1910. He had a son : 

VI. 36. Henry A^aughan ]\Ialtby. From the Clergy List 

of 191 1, we learn the following: "Maltby. Hy.

1854, at St. Peter's Drogheda, Jane Isabella, dau. of George and 
Alicia (nee Corry) Riddock of Triton Lodge, Bettys Town, near 
Droghedd and Doone, Co. Roscommon and Laird of Dunwoodie in 
Dumfrieshire. Children : 

VI. 37. George Mowbray Maltby. 

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

Note.— A letter dated July 12th, 1906, from Morton Rectory, near Alfre- 
ton, Devonshire, from ]\Ir. Gilbert Maltby, who was evidently visiting his 
brother, who was in ill health, 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 Mansfield (who is 
"Alderman Maltby," 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 Maltby undoubtedly 
descends from this Hoveringham, Mansfield branch of the family and we 
hope to ascertain his line of descent.

Pedigree XMI. 

Maltby — Leeds. Yorkshire. 

This family owned o coat-of-arms which was on a fine old seal 
ring belonging to ]\Ir. 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 ^h. 
[Nlaltby says he is quite sure it was not the sheaves of wheat. 


I. I. SA]yIUEL ]\Ialtby. of Leeds. Yorkshire, master plumber. 
He seems to have been quite well off, juding from the fact that a 
piece of property which should have gone to his son Samuel — by the 
entail not being cut off — was valued at some iSooo sterling, which 
of course was but a part of his propertv. 

II. 2. SA:\IUEL Maltby was b. at Leeds, Yorks. Mr. W. L. 
Maltby says : "I may as well admit that I have an idea that father 
was somewhat of a dare-devil, and it was probably his reason for 
leaving Yorkshire 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 ^^lontreal, 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 Naseby, 
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 always 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 
Chicago, says: "True, there had been champions of public risrhts in that 
body before, notably John H. Hamline, a splendid fig:ure of a man. rusged 
and vehement. Adolphus W. Maltby followed him — a 'solid' business man — 
insisting on public rights." Mr. Maltby resides at Concord. California. 


Note.— It is probable that Mr. Maltby descends from Samuel Maltby, 
bapt. Feb. 23, 1755, at Shelton, Notts. See Pedigree of Maltby of Orston 
who was a son of Samuel, b. in 1725. The name Samuel seems to come down 
well in this branch of the family. I think the above Samuel (2) had seven 

III. 3. WILLIAM Lassey Maltby, b. in 1842 in Derby, Eng- 
land. Emigrated to Montreal, Canada, in 1855. ^^r. Maltby has 
one daughter by his first wife. He has been very successful in busi- 
ness. Resides at 309 St. James Street, Montreal. Child : 

IV. Daughter. 

III. 4. HERBERT Lassey Maltby of the Eas. Dept. C. P. 
R. R., Montreal. 

III. 5. C. Lassey Maltby of Medland, Ont. Has 10 children. 

III. 4. Mr. Herbert L. Maltby wrote, May 13, 1909: "The 
Yorkshire Maltbys are the fountainhead of that name or family and 
their descendants. If you would take up the pedigree of Bishop 
Maltby of London, you would likely get enlightenment as to the 
branch of our family both in LTnited States and India. ..." ( See 
V. 68, Col. Samuef Maltby, b. 1787; Col. in E. India Co.. Orston 
Maltby Fed.) "My brother V\^. L. Maltby, who is nine years older 
than I am holds the coat-of-arms which you show on your booklet." 

Note. — Mr. W. L. Maltby states : 'T had an old seal ring of my father's, 
I unfortunately lost it. twenty years ago, but it certainly was not the wheat 

H. L. Maltby writes : "I had pedigrees, etc., but unfortunately I lost 
them in a fire." 

Mr. Maltby 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 unliarmed when this fright- 
ful war is over. 

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



Pedigree XA'III. 

Maltby — Leeds, Yorkshire. 

I. I. JOSEPH Maltby was b. about 1800, in Leeds, England. 
He m. June 9. 1830, Betsey Goldsmith Chase, in the old Sands Street 
Church, Brooklyn. Xew York, by Noah Levings. She was b. Oct., 
1805, in Danbury, Conn. In 1832, Joseph Maltby went to Baltimore, 
Maryland and started to visit a brother William in Tennessee. Mrs. 
Maltby d. Oct. 16. 1876, in Brooklyn. X. Y. They had: 

H. 2. HARRIET Elizabeth Alaltbv, b. ^lav 2^. 1832 in Xew 

Note. — I think she married a Mr. Thomas, and had a son, William A. E. 
(3) Thomas, who was of Trinity College, Hartford, Conn., about 1896; who 
inserted a query of the above people in the X. E. H. & G. Reg. It would 
seem that he might have been nearly related to the foregoing family of 
Maltby of Leeds.

Pedigree XX. 

Maltby of Lincobishire 

The following records are taken from a letter dated "Cropredy 
Vicarage, Leamington, Oxfordshire, England, Oct. 13th, 1911," 
from the Rev. Maurice ]\Ialtby. From the Clergy List of 1911, we 
learn that, "Rev. Maurice Alaltby. Chich., d. 1892; p. 1893. 
(Chich.) cur. St. Paul. Chichester. 1892-7; St. Peter's, Coventry. 
1897-9; cur.-in-ch. of St. Leonard, So. Banbury. Oxford, 1899- 
1907; chapl. of Banbury union. 1904: s. vie. from 1907. of Crop- 
redv, Leamington." Mr. Maltbv states that, "as far back as I can 


remember any of our relations, there has always been Williams and 
Johns. My grandfather and my father were Johns, and I have a 
Brother William and I had an Uncle William and an Aunt Eliza- 
beth and a Sister Elizabeth. I know my ancestors came from York- 
shire, but when I do not know, as it is some generations since. 
For three or four generations we have lived in Lincolnshire County." 
Mr. Maltby closed with a most cordial invitation to a "fine old Eng- 
lish vicarage."

Pedigree XXI. 
Maltby — Long Eaton, Derbyshire 

The fragmentary records of this branch of the familv were 
gleaned from Mr. Joseph Maltby, 2118 Park Building, Long Beach. 
California in 1906. We have been unable to obtain replies to letters 
sent others of this family in England. 

I. I. WILLIAM Maltby, Long Eaton, Derbyshire, had sons: 

II. 2. Thomas Maltby. 
II. 3. Joseph Maltby. 

II. 4. Jabez Maltby. 

II. 2. THOMAS Maltby had sons:

III. Thomas Maltby (eldest son) Boscovel. Pa., U. S. A. 
III. Samuel ]\Ialtby. Somewhere in Dakota, U. S. A. 

Note. — ^Ir. IMaltby made a copy of an old tombstone which he read : 
"Elizabeth (and William?) Alaltby, Thrumpton-on-the-Trent." He remem- 
bered seeing this stone when a child. There may be. and probably is, a 
connection here with Charles Maltby, b. in 1848, eldest son of Joseph Maltby (( ^ 
of Ilkestone, Derbyshire; he m. in 1871, Eliza Long. Residence "Dalby 
House," Ilkestone R. S. O. Derbyshire. 


Pedigree XXII. 
Maltby of HickUng. Notts. 

I. I. WILLI A:M ^laltby of Hickling. He had a sister who 
m. a j\Ir. E. Woolly of Hickling. 

XoTE. — In 1910 the ^Nlaltby Association forwarded a certain sum for 
the birth certificate of Gov. Frederick Maltby Warner, son of the above 
William Maltb\% and adopted bj^ the Warners. The Rector made an error 
and sent the birth of a Frederick Maltby, son of Joseph and Eliza Ann Maltby, 
he a weaver; bapt. by W. H. Walker, Rect., July 27, 1851 — fourteen years 
before Governor Warner was born. We wrote to ask for the correct certifi- 
cate, but never received any reply. It occurred to the compiler that possibly 
the "Charles Maltby, eldest son of Joseph of Ilkestone, Derbyshire, b. 1848, 
m. 1871, Eliza Long, might be nearly related to the above Joseph. 

II. I. FREDERICK Alaltby. b. in Hickling. Xotts., July, 
1865. Came to the L'nited States when a baby and was adopted by 
the Hon. P. Dean Warner of Farmington, ^Michigan. Governor 
Frederick Maltby Warner of Michigan is well known to all Amer- 
icans, and we hope before long to connect his branch of the family 
with one of the older pedigrees. 

Pedigree XXIII. 

Speaker George R. MaJby of Xeiv York. 

Frequent inquiries are received as to the branch of the family 
to which George R. Malby, Esq., who was speaker of the House 
at Albany, Xew York, in 1894, belongs. On March 7th, 1894. Mr. 


Malby wrote to Air. George Ellsworth Alaltby of Xew Haven, Con- 
necticut, as follows : 

"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 
taught when I was a boy and I have always continued to spell it 

"Aly ancestors emigrated to this country about 60 years ago ; 
(1834?) coming from Yorkshire, England. They settled in North- 
ern New York. My grandparents died when I was a boy and I 
know little of the family history. Two brothers came to this coun- 
try at that time named William and John. . . . 

"I am doing what I can in my modest way to keep up the 
reputation of the family for honesty and integritv." 

Signed: "GEO.' R. MALBY." 

Pedigrek XXIV. 

I. FRANCIS Mallaby. His father is supposed to have come 
from England, but his name is not known. Francis had four sons. 
He was an old man, and died when Theodore was a child. 

II. I. Theodore Alallaby. 
II. 2. Francis Mallaby. 
II. 3. Oliver Mallaby. 
II. 4. Thomas Mallaby. 

II. I. THEODORE Mallaby m. when past middle aoe, a Miss 
Bleecker. (Ancestry traced many generations.) They had a dau., 
Miss Theodora F. Alallaby of New York City, who kindly furnished 
this record. 

II. 4. Rev. THOMAS Alallaby of Stonington, Conn., m. 

Mary N. Taylor, of Kingston. They were married bv T. D. S. 

Pardoe and C. H. Bixbey, Feb. 2, 1878. (A'ide Vital Rec. of Rhode 
Island, p. 594.) 

Note. — I have not a ]\Iaulsby Genealogy at hand, but do not think from 
the names that tlie above are a branch of that family. Personally I am in- 
clined to think this family connected with a "N. Malherbe," who signs a 
petition to Lord Cornby, at New 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 Alallaby. 

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 ]\Ialsherbe, Minister 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 New 
Rochelle, New York. 

In 1626 (p. 425, State and Domestic Papers, 64. Date Sept. 11, 1626) 
there is a petition of John Malherbe, Master of the "Francis" of St. Maloes. 
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. 

Pedigri:e; XXV. 


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

This branch of the ^laltbys are said to have gone to Ireland 
with Oliver Cromwell, perhaps in Cromwell's army, which would 
have been about the year 1649 or 1650. 

This tradition would indicate that the following record con- 
cerns this family intimately. In the Calendar of State Papers for 
Ireland, 1660-1662, p. 657, edited ]\Iahafifey, is this item: "vSamnel 
Maltby served in the Army of Ireland since 1649, in 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 would seem that the Samuel Alaltby above was, in id\ prob- 
ability, the progenitor of this Irish branch of the family. 

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

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


Esq., received the appointment, and is probably still in office. Arthur 
Warner Maitltbv had six sons, as follows: 

II. 2. Joseph Maultby. 

II. 3. William H. Alaultby. ^ 

II. 4. John Maultby. 

II. 5. Peter Maultby. 

II. 6. Arthur Warner Maultby. 

II. 7. Henry Maultby. 
II. 4. JOHN MAULTBY emigrated to the United States 
States about 183 1-2, and settled in Washington County ( ?), Ver- 
mont. Not long after he removed to Landsingburg, Rensselaer 
County, N. Y. Ivater 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. 

II. 3. JOHN MAULTBY emigrated to the United States 
about 1840 (?). He resided at Landsingburg for a while. He 
died at Waterford, Albany County, N. Y. 

II. 5. PETER MAULTBY emigrated with his brother, John, 
and for a while resided at Landsingburg. About 1842 he removed 
to Boonville, Mo., and there married. Later he moved to Kickapoo, 
Kansas. (Information of his descendants requested.) 

II. 6. ARTHUR WARNER MALTBY emigrated to the 
United States about 1834. He resided in Vermont with his brother, 
William H., for a short while and with him removed to Landsing- 
burg, N. Y. Here he married Miss Mary Ann Scace, an English 
lady from near Ipswich, Eng. Both have been some vears deceased. 
' III. 8. WILLIAM H. MAULTBY, of Grand" Valley, Penn- 
sylvania, is a son of the above. He was born August i. 1838. at 
Landsingburg, and about 1840 moved with his parents to Highland 
on the Hudson.

The following item has recently come to our notice and is taken 
from the "Connecticut Quarterly." Vol. II., No. 4. page 398, as fol- 
lows : "Maltby, John (clothier) m. Aug. 3, 1790. in Parish Church.

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 Maltby 
and Maltbie, though one also finds Maltbey and Molby. 

Many inquirers ask why ]\Ialtby is usually given as the correct 
spelling when our emigrant ancestor in New England spelled his 
name Maltbie. 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 
Maltby, Yorkshire, took its name from the family of Maltby. who 
were belies ed to have come down from Denmark before the Norman 
Conquest. This is an error, as will be subsequently shown ; also it 
explains how the name comes to be claimed by so many nations. 

Miss Martha J. Maltby, while in Christiana, Norway, saw a 
stone house, known for years as the "Maltby House." It was a 
private residence and was once owned bv a physician by the name of 

Miss Maltby was told by a Norwei^-ian traveling acquaintance 
(of Chicago, but who was born in Christiana) that Maltby was a 
Norwegian name. 

Miss Margaret Maltby was told by a Danish professor of the 
University of Copenhagen, that Maltby was a Danish name. 

While in Stockholm, Miss ]\Ialtby was told that it was Swedish 
and. Aliss Maltby adds : "We know it is English !" 

In the "Maulsby Genealogy" J\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 Alaulsby Genealogy": "jNIaltby is an old Norse 
or Saxon name. Saxon, mealt ; 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 Swedish. It is a place suffix, equivalent to town ; see Grimsby, 
Whitby, Derby. Alaltby therefore means the town which produces 
malt, or where malt is made." 

The present form of the word Maltby 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 Maltby 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 Mundlingham with the following nearly 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 night's pasture; fifteen 
mittan of bright and five of Welsh ale. and fifteen sesters of mild 

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

"Maltby, a chapelry, in the parish of Raithby. union of Louth,

Mrs. G. ]\I. \\'atson, of Maltby House, Cleveland, Stockton-on- 
Tees, was kind enough to write the compiler something aljout the 
village of Maltby, 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 Maltby 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, Maltby and others. 

"Maltby 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 gently elevated ridge. 


"Maltby temp. Doomsday consisted of 3 caracutes ad geldum. 
. . ." According to Kirkby's Inquest we find (1272-1307) "Johi^ 
de Maltby 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 Normanby after 
alverated to the Pennymans of Ormsby. The other morety 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 Maltby, Esq., Alderman of York." 

Graves Hist, of Cleveland, p. 444, has the following pedigree : 
"Nicholas Morley of Normanby, Co. York, 24 Hen. VI., m. 
Joan, dau. of John Hedlam, Esq., 24 Hen. VI. Their son, Chris- 
topher Morley of Normanby in Cleveland, Esq., had Robert Morley 
of Normanby, who dwelt at Maltby. He m. first, Isabel, dau. of 

William Maltby of Maltby. He m. second. Elizabeth, dau. of 

Symonds of Kirklington. Their son, James Morley, was of Maltby 
in 1584. He m. Phillis Thornaby." 

(Transcribed for the secretary by Edward C. Harte, Esq., of Wells, Som- 
erset. To the courtesy and kindeness of Mr. Harte, whose wife is a Maltby, 
we owe a vast amount of valuable and interesting material concerning the 
Maltby family. 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 Miss Barnard's comprehensive study of our name : 
"Maltby (St. Bartholomew's), a Parish, West Riding, of county 
of York, 830 inhabitants. Parish contains 3919 acres. Church, 
residence of Earl of Scarborough, etc.

Cobbett, London, published by Wm. Cobbett, 1832, also gives "^Nlaultby, Co. 
Norfolk." This book is in the Mass. Hist. Soc. Rooms, Boston, Massachu- 
setts. There was also "Enderby :Malbys,'" but this place is now Mavis 

"To these sections of England comprised in the old Kingdom 
of Northumbria and IMercia we have traced the Maltby family, and 

* .'Graves Historv of Cleveland, pp. 476-81.) "Failure of Male Issue.— 
This does not mean a total failure. It onlv means that the 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 iNIaltby. 


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 dififerent countries at different times. 

"In England surnames came into general use about the time 
of the Norman 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 individual hereafter." 

(p. 15). "Our ancestor took the name of the place Maltby. 

"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 (24). [The numbers in- 
dicate there are about that many in 16,000 inhabitants.] 

The following explanation given by Miss 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, 
applying 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 
hogs) he was elected a noble or earl by 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." 

We give one or two more facts concerning the name ?\Ialtby 
and thf, numerous ways in which it is spelled. "Maulsby Geneal- 
ogy-" P- 349: 

"There is at least presumptive evidence that the surname Maltby 
arose independently in each of the three places, as it is found as 
De Malteby on the Rotuli Hundredorumb 1273 in both Norfolk 
and Lincolnshire, and as De Maltby on the Poll Tax List of the 
West Riding of Yorkshire in 1379." 

Descendants will please note the followin<? — for many of us have 
been skeptical as to the Mawtby's of Norfolk being of the same 
name as Maltby. 

"The Norfolk Malteby became Maultby and then Mautby and 
as a surname further deteriorated into Mawbie and Mawby. 


"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 Dutch mout ; the Danish 
and Swedish malt; Anglo Saxon mealt ; (p. 350) Middle English 
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 Norwe- 
gian as Bo; in Old Norse as Bast and Bry, and was loaned into 
Anglo-Saxon as By or Bye. It is derived from the old Norse Bua, 
"to dwell," and originally denoted a "dwelling," then a "farmstead" 
and later "a village or town." Domesday Book tom. II., fol. 134b." 
This very comprehensive philological account of the name 
Maltby, explains conclusively why the name is claimed as Danish, 
Swedish, Norwegian and English. It should also settle the ques- 
tion as to the correct way of spelling the name. 

In compiling the Maltby Genealogy it has been clearly shown 
that where members of the same famil}- resided in close proximity an 
endeavor was made for one family 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 Malby and a third Molby, 
although they unquestionably belong to the same Maltby family. 

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 weW as 'Mai,' as 
the name was frequently spelled 'Mauteby.' " 

"The name Maltby is rare." — J. Harvey Bloom. 
"The Mautebys, Mawtbys or ^laultbys were an old Norfolk 
family." — Reginald C. Duddine. 

"There was a good family of the name with a pedigree entered 
in one of the i6th or 17th Visitations of Yorkshire. In the 19th 
Century there were families of the name in Lincolnshire. Notts and 
Derbyshire ; but in the last named county it certainly is not an ancient 
name, for there are no Maltby Wills at Lichfield down to about 1630. 


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

"Maltby is quite a characteristic surname of the Vale 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 Alaltby farming in that parish. 
. . . The name Alaltby also occurs in the i6th and 17th cen- 
turies in the parish registers of several parishes in the district be- 
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 Maltby family is one of the 
oldest in the midlands . . . Hoveringham branch . . . this 
branch was related to the IJrough ^laltbys also the Alaltbys of 
Hickling and others of the name at P»awtry (Yorks). . . ." — 
Edward C. Harte. 


The following poem was cut from the Xew York "Independent" 
in 1867 or 1868 by Miss Martha J. Maltby. 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. 
Maltby Chapel was very evidently what is now the restored church 
of St. Bartholomew at IMaltbv. 

' Maltby 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. 

Near him, gazing, knelt or stood 

Mary's weeping sisterhood; 

Next with colors interchanged. 

Holy emblems 'round were ranged; 

First a light and then a dark: — 

Here the lion of St. Mark ; 

There the eagle of St. John ; 

Cherub heads with pinions on ; 

Virgin lilies, 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 ]\Ialtby"s dusty road 
Cromwell and his pikemen strode — 
Six and twenty hundred strong — 
Roaring forth a battle-song; 
Who, 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; 
He 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. 
Winged 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 Hght of God let in." 


" Like the spear that pierced the side 
Of the Saviour crucified. 
So the v^reapon 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 may go, 
Ere a mortal man shall know 
Such a more tlian mortal pain 
As the knight felt in his brain. 
Long he knelt beside the dead, 
Long he kissed her face and head, 
Long he clasped her pulseless palm, 
He in tempest, she in calm : 
Stricken by his anguish 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. 
Stiffened every limb and joint. 
Clenched his hands about the blade; 
Muttered 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 day. 
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. 
When the Roundheads saw with rage 
How the birds had quit the cage. 
They, in spite, with blow on blow, 
Fought the chapel for a foe. 
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 trite we are publishing three 
accounts of visits to the hamlet of Maltby, Yorkshire, feeling con- 
fident that all Maltbys will find new viewpoints, dififerent observa- 
tions in each article, which are of individual interest. 

The first article is by INIiss Martha J. Maltby, of Columbus, 
Ohio, who visited Maltby in 1895. This account appeared in Maltby 
Booklet No. 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 accotmt was contained in a personal letter to the 
compiler from Miss Marion Davenport Maltbie of Syracuse, a cousin 
of the late Dr. Maltbie Davenport Babcock, and a lineal descendant 
from Ormud de Dauneport, who was born in 1086. Miss Maltbie 
visited Maltby in the summer of 1909. 

Our third account of Maltby was written from Rotherham, 
Yorkshire, by Mrs. Neavando A. Eldvado. to her mother, Mrs. 
James T. Hoblit and at the request of the compiler. Mrs. Hoblit 
consented to allow its publication. 




By Miss Martha J. Maltby 

When in York, in 1885, a gentleman remarked upon introduc- 
tion. "There is a parish in Yorkshire 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 West 

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 
r.ame, then I learned what I had long wished to ascertain ; i. e., how 
could Maltby be found? 

He had visited the hamlet on an archaeological excursion and 
remembered it had an old church tower and he gave the much 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 Norman tower of the castle which Sir Walter Scott 
makes the scene of the tournament in "Ivanhoe." which Rebecca 
reports to the knight. The 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 ]\Ialtby 
which is situated up a valley from Conisboro and the mist shut from 
sight some of what must have been a charming view in the heart 
of north English country, could we have seen it in the distance. 
The road wound along between stone walks and English hedges 
and fertile farms, growing wheat, barley and turnips and with pas- 
turage for cattle and sheep, lay on both sides of the way. 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 village school had just closed for the day as we drove 
through Maltby 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 churchyard. 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. Bits 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 dififerent and its 
double windows look like Norman 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 might 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. 


We could not learn that anyone of the name of Maltby was 
resting- in the churchyard, or lived in the parish, within the sexton's 
memory, nor had he ever heard of the name in the records. On 
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 
narrow but clean. The whole town looked like a conservative old 
English place, as it is, wnth trees about its boundaries and in the 
lawns of the larger houses. 

Maltby Hall is an old place with some fine trees about it. We 
did not enter it as the hour w^as growin-^^- 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 Library of the British 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 railway station 
and the hour was decidedly late when I finished writing in my diary 
and turned — a tired, happy woman — to retire. I had seen Maltby 
parish. Whether there is any connection between it and the Maltby 
name, who can tell us. 

The followino; is copied from "Kelly Directory of West Riding 
of Yorkshire, Eneland, 1897," i" the Library of the British Museum, 
by Miss Martha J. Maltby :

Riding in the Rotherham union and county court district and rural 
deanery, archdeanery of Shefifield and diocese of York. 

"The church of St. Bartholomew is a plain building of stone 
in Gothic style and was rebuilt with the exception of the tower 
in 1859 on the site of the former church. It consists of a chancel. 


nave, aisles, south porch and western tower with spire containing 
three bells. 

"There are several memorial windows, lecturn, organ and lych- 
gate of carved oak and a lychstone which were given by Miss 
Crossley and Miss Mary Crossley in 1880. The lychgate and stone 
were given in memory of their mother.

Syracuse, Xew York. 

October 20th, 1909. 
My dear Mrs. Verrill : — 

How I wish you might have been with me this summer while 
I spent five days in the charming httle EngHsh village which bears 
our name. They call it in Yorkshire the "Queen of Villages." 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 Maltby 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 York 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 took 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 Maltby where Elder Brewster was born and the first Pilgrim 
church organized. 

I left my friends in York and went to Maltby 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 Yorkshire 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 yard 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 Aliss ]\Ialtbie's clever marginal 
illustration of the type of old ladies.) 

They all had volumes to say about ]\laltby. but 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 Alaltby, 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 "Jawhnny." 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." 

Note. — '"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. 

You see the "chilled plough" is made here in Syracuse by an 
old friend of my mother's. I told my Yorkshire friend I'd tell Air. 
Chase he didn't like the ploughs. ' 

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

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



ihey 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 Maltbies ; 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, you know how welcome is a halt. I cannot tell you 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 

Sunday morning I went to the historic church and listened to 
a sermon given to a small handful of people. But what I most en- 
joyed was wandering about the church and churchyard by myself. 
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 Maltby or Jane de Maltby. no surnames 
given. It cannot "be proved who were Maltby by name or who just 


so and so of Maltby. 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 York, duplicates 
would possibly be found. . . . Miss Maltbie here tells of her trip, 
she visited ten countries, and found them all "wonderfully inter- 
esting, but England was home." 

To return to Maltby. Mr. and Mrs. 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 Maltby 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 years ago, a Catholic monastery ; think of the irony of fate 
which made it the home of the Pilgrim church) is a little creek 
which 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. We had not time in Bawtry to look up 
church records for the Maltby 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, along Maltby Crags, through the beautiful Norwoods 
and back around by the road. A five mile tramp. Some people I 
met got the "History of Roche Abbey" from the Rotherham safe 
for me to read. It tells in that, that all that land was held by the 
Earl of Merton. brother of William the Conqueror ; he also held 
much land in Lincolnshire and there, is a town of Maltby 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 Alaltby. You know, of course, that the stone for the 
Houses of Parhament in London, was brought from one of the many 
fine quarries at Maltby. Now 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. No 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 Yorkshire. Just see the length of 
this letter — and still I could tell you more. 

If any of the Maltby family want to see our quaint little Maltby 
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 will 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? 
Yours most sincerely, 

Marion Davexport Maltbii;. 


Rotherham, 17 June, 1910. 

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

We arrived in Rotherham Sunday, at i 130 P. M.. and aftei 
dinner Neavar suggested a drive, it being a beautiful day. So 
he rented a horse and trap and we drove to Daltan Village. Here 
we stopped at a farmhouse and drank some fresh milk and ate some 
tea cakes. Then, returning to town by a different route, I noticed 
a signboard which read, "7 miles to Maltby." That settled it ! We 
must go to Maltby ; but it was too late to go so far, so we set 
Thursday for our "excursion" into the past. 

Yesterday 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 villages. At last we came to Maltby 
— 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. When you come wc 
shall go together, mother, and hunt it all up. We next went to 
Maltby Hall, where now resides Lady Violet 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 
Maltbys strolling about. 

But, as interested as I was in Alaltby, we "tore ourselves away," 
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 in Bnglaiid. 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 sunlight, 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. 
Near 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 ivy I plucked from the abbey walls. Oh, 
that lovely ravine, with the cattle and sheep grazing 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 Maltbys 
ever left so lovely a place. . . . 

Mrs. Eldorado has resided abroad for some years. In 1909 
she returned to London after having made an extended trip to South 
Africa and through Northern Europe. When the above letter was 
written she was touring England with her husband. We regret we 
have not space to print two exceedingly interesting letters written 
by her about Durham — its cathedral, palace, university and the town. 

In "Highways and Byways in Yorkshire," Arthur H. Norways 
says of Maltby : "Deep below the road a valley runs, closed at length 
by the shoulder of a hill, on which the red-roofed village of Maltby 
stands shining pleasantly in the evening sun. It is a pretty spot. 
The crags are fantastically piled ; a few sheep go browsing in and 
out among them, and from the depths of the valley, 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 N'ew and Complete History of 
the County of York," London, 1831. Vol. 5, pp. 193-203: 

Maltby 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 

Maltby, in common with the great majority of our villages, 
first presents itself in the pages of Domesday. We there find, that 
in the time of the Confessor, Elsi had held four carucates in Maltebi 
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 Norman, 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 Maltby 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 building, forming a remarkable con- 
trast to the once magnificent church of the Cistertians, wdio 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 early lords 
of Maltby 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. 

No 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. Mary, 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 1132. 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 York 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 society 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 yew 
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, "Monachi 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 range 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 monks to make choice of this spot. Among 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 monasterv 
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 P>usli, 


the Lord of Alaltby, and Richard, the son of Turquis. called also 
Richard de Wickersley. 

To be the founders of a house 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 of connectinf^" their names forever with such a 

By the light which the early charters afford, 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 which 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 Alaltby'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 Alaltby. 

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 by 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 whole of the ground comprehended in these tw'o dona- 
tions is described in Pope L^rban's confirmation A. D. 1186, as 
locum ipsum in quo abbatia sita est.* 

Neither 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 Mr. 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 Enqland was distracted by foreign and intestine war.

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 1 1 59. 

Dionysius, 1159 to 1171. 

Roger de Tickhell, 1171 to 1179. 

Hugh de Wadworth, 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 Bankewell professed canonical obedience. 1349. 

John de Aston. 1358. Robert. 1396. 

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

John Gray, 1465; William Tikel. 1479; Thomas Thurne, i486; 
William 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 stag, 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 IMaltby, 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 of 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, which 
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. 
which was once a valuable appendage to the monastery 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 lying waste or it is included in the survey of the manor of 
Maltby.' It first occurs in the 6th year of the reign of Henrv 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 Eu, 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."

MALTBY, Alford-Lincolnshire 

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 "Maltby Rectory," Mr. Duke 
writes : "The name Maltby is derived from the Danish Commander 

It is probable that the Maltbys who were in England prior to 
the Norman conquest descend from this Danish officer, while an- 
other and quiet distinct branch, derive their descent from the Nor- 
man baron, de Malebisse, who accompanied William the Conqueror 
to England. 

Mr. Duke adds : "There are no Maltbys on the Registers of 
this church." 



I. Henry Vice Maltby was born Sept. 15, 181 1, at Evington, 
Leicestershire and was christened at St. Martin's Church, Leicester, 
Oct. 6, 181 1. He married Sarah Ann Dunkly on the first Sunday 
ir November about 1835 ; probably at Leicester. He died March 
27th, 1882, at Aston, Birmingham, and was buried at Boldmere,

(Written for the Maltby 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 but 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 !" 

PART 11. 


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

In Part II. we deal almost entirely with the family records of 
William 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 Maltby record in New England yet discovered is 
on 27 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 Maltbie Twenty gall, of Rum 
which I doe promise to make saile of (at or upon my arrival in 
Virginia) to his best advantage, and likewise to make him Returns 
in the ship with Capt. Newton's goods, or by the first ship to Mr. 
John Rookeby, merchant in Barbadoes, as witness my hand this 
Twenty-seventh day of June, 1664. 

John Goring. 

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 Maltbie. 

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



to be sold and iioo to son John at 21, and the residue for my 
youngest son (Roben) "lately born," we can place the birth of 
John as in 1(340-41. 

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

"This Indenture made the six day of January in tiie yere of our

Note. — The above record was copied from the printed Colonial Records, 
and it is quite likely the original signature was "Alaltbie." The "I" was of 
course "J" as I and J were interchangeable in the earlv colonial davs. This "I 


Mallbier"' was, of course, John ]\Ialtby. Alexander Bryan was the grand- 
father of Mary Bryan, who married John ]\Ialtby about 1670-71. 

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

"Mr. John Maltbie ppounded to ye towne for Admittance as a 
planter to buy as he shall see cause. It was Left to ye Comittee, 
formerly appointed by the Towne for admitting of planters. Some- 
time hearafter makeing aplication to ye sd comittee, upon ye testi- 
mony of John Harriman & John Winston was admitted." 

In this connection it is well to insert an item which appeared 
in the Hartford "Times," Sept. 2T,, 1907, in answer to query 4.300, 
Maltby-Downing. The answer reads: "Either a New Haven, Bran- 
ford or Milford name." (i.e. Maltby). "The original Maltby mar- 
ried a daughter of John Harriman, Milford." Signed (Ed.). 
Again on Dec. 22, 1910, the Hartford "Weekly Times" had under 
query 6,297: "New Haven genealogist (L. ]M. C.) quoted from 
memory of years back ; one of my ancestors. John Harriman, wdio 
was one of the first innkeepers in New Haven, had twin daughters, 
and one married a Maltby — given name forgotten. (Noel Little.)"* 

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

(referring to WilHam (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 not refer to the first wife of William (1) 
Alaltby, 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. ]\Iary Bryan, and certainly he had 
only the two children, John (2), and Mary (2). twins, by her. 

Shortlv after the above record we find in the Winthrop Papers, 
1666-7. Mass. Hist. Collect. \'ol. \^IIL Fifth Series Winthrop 
Papers, Part IV., p. 115. a letter from John Winthrop. Jr., to Rich- 
ard Nicolls.

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

"I could never yet heare of arrival of it at Mr. Bryan's to 
whom it was directed, at the seaside. Last Friday came a letter 
from Mr. Charles Hill of N. London, who was newly arrived fro 
Barbadoes. There was a letter for Capt. Delavall — Linderstanding 
by Ed. Messinger, by whom I receive yours of Jan. 18, at his re- 
turn fro N. Yorke, that the report of it (fire) was gone beyond 
Milford as he came thither, whc could not but be at New York 
then quickly, Mr. Malbye at that time being on his journey thither." 

Letter to Gen. Nicholls. governor of all his Royall Highnesses, 
the Duke of York, his territories in America at N. York. The 
Index refers to "Mr. John Maltby (Malbye)." 

This letter gives us the information that John Maltby made 
a trip to New York in the spring of 1666-7 arid 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 Winthrop Papers, Vol. VHL, p. 568, a 
letter from William Leete to John Winthrop, Jr. 

"Newhaven, Apr. 13, 1671. 

"I have herein inclosed Governor Lovelace his letter but the 
instructions are with Mr. Eliot for perusall. Here is no nezves with 
us, but of Mr. Malby's arrival safe at Nevis; that ship he zvent in 
being there cast azvay by herracane after the goodes zuere landed & 
he since gone for England. Goodman Glover of N. H. saith that 
he heard at Long Island that Capt. Pearce was arrived in England 
safe. There is also much speech about Commission and fifriggots 
coming to N. E. Sorry to hear of the grief and damage to your 
relations at xAntego.* Signed William Leete." 

From the above letter of William Leete, who at this time was 
deputy governor of the Colony of Connecticut, we learn that "Mr. 
Malbye" had arrived safe at Nevis, 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 
Maltby was engaged in a West India merchant trade, and up to 
this time we find him the only Maltby in New England. He was 
very evidently the older brother who sold his property at East Ret- 
ford, etc., Notts, in 1662, and set himself up in business. 

* John Winthrop, Jr.. had a brother, Samuel, who resided at Antiguar. 
of whicli island he was deputy governor. The idea has sometimes pre- 
sented itself to the compiler that the first wife of William Maltby may 
have been a W^inthrop, 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 Maltby was assessed at Retford to the Hearth Tax 
of 1663 (Lay Subsidy Roll, 160-322). This is a most important 
fact as it establishes that the Maltbys had left Retford at this date, 
i.e., the year following the sale of John Maltby's property. On this 
visit to England John ]\laltby very evidently fetched his two younger 
brothers and also his cousin, Robert Maltby of Bawtry, as we shall 
see from both the English and American records. 

If we turn to the English records, under date 1662, where John 
Maltby sold his property we find "George Holmes and Mary, his 
wife," as part vendors and the idea suggested was that Mary Maltby, 
the widowed mother, had married George Holmes. Farther on, 
in 1664, there is an indenture between various people including 
"William Maltby of London, Haberdasher of Hats," and the names 
Francis Holmes and Alexander Holmes also appear. The theory 
presents itself that if the widow, Mary Maltby. 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 Maltby, Haber- 
dasher of London died about 1664-5, this may be one and the same 
person, and in no way connected with the Retford Maltbys, but 
in genealogical research, every clue or theory is worth following 
till it ends in failure. 

To return to the New England records: New 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 
Maltbv, Sr. Secondlv we must remember that in Colonial days 


"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 New Haven Colony and what more 
likely than that they returned with John Maltby, 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). Next 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, William Maltby 
of Bawtry, 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 Maltby" — i.e., the John 
Maltby who we believe brough Robert Maltby of Bawtry to New 
England. He also left his "cousin William Maltby, £5." (i.e., Wil- 
liam Maltby, 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 New Haven record. Robert Maltbye, Sr., 
pleaded "his lowness and ye wrong he had sustained in coming from 
England & being to return again." I think "his lowness" in this 
instance refers to the expense he had been to in coming to New 
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 Bethey 
Moore, land at Springthorpe in Lincolnshire." Now we find that 
Robert Maltby sold this house in Bawtry about the time he went 
to New 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- 
trey wherein one Elizabeth Carbonell now dwelleth, lately purchased 
of Robert Maultby and John Phillips. Dated 6 August. 1672." No 
doubt the sale of this house gave him funds for his voyage to New 
England. His cousin. John Maltby. probably thought that in tlie 
"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 (whtn 
Robert Maltby had evidently returned to England) we find his 
brother. Daniel Maltby, stating that "Robert Maltby borrowed £50 
from Robert Langlev of Bawtrv and for securitv mortga'^'ed three 


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

Again we find that the widow, Anne Alaltby. mother of Robert 
Alaltby 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 
Maltby, guardian, trying to recover rents, he claimed due his infant 
daughter Sarah. Robert Coulston of Cottingham was agent for 
Anne Maltby, the elder, as collector of rents and he was "ready to 
perform the trusts." 

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

Easton's Neck, on Long- Island, would rather indicate that he owned 
land there. 

t "At home." The compiler has never felt sure of where 'home was 
to Jbhn Maltby. The inventory of his estate taken at New Haven in 1676, 
is verv small, amounting to only £58. 5s, 6d. Whereas he seems to have 
had a good merchant trade, and tradition has it, owned his own ships. \\ e

Martha R. Roundketell 

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

This shows us that William ^laltby was of New Haven in ]\Iay, 
1672, that he mvist have had his two oldest children, John (2) and 
Jane (2) prior to coming to New Haven. Where these two oldest 
children were born and the dates of birth are not known, nor is the 
name of their mother, the first wife of William Maltby. 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 Saybrook. which has likely been long 

t The inventory of William Maltby mentions: 

i s d 

5 grown swine ....... 400 

a black horse ....... 400 

9 smale swine ....... 330 

a mare and colt ....... 2 15 

a black mare ....... 200 

a cart and irons belonging- to it . . . . 15 

Plow and plow irons ...... 100 

7 cows 16 

The "case of pistolls and gun," I do not find mentioned in the above 


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

A year from the time we find the birth of Mary (2) Maltby 
at New Haven, we have the record of WilHam 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 New 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 under the date 1673. 

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. 326, Vol. X.) but this is hardly 
probably as he would have been nearly fifty years old. There 
is a record in Vol. VI.. p. 366. from Abstracts of records of all 
grants made in South Carolina in 1682, which seems more likely 
to refer to the Robert Maltby above. It reads: "Robert Maltey, 
Town Lot, 23 March, 1682." As this copy was made from the 
printed abstracts it is very likely that on the original the name 
Maltey is spelled Malby or Maltby. This would account for the 
tradition that "there were three Maltby brothers emigrated to New 
England, one of them going to Virginia." The fact remains that 
there are early Maltby records in New England which as yet seem 
impossible to trace to William and John Maltby. 

There is little more known of John Maltby, emigrant, and may 
as well be summarized here. He maried ^lary Bryan, daughter of 
Richard Bryan, she born at Milford in 164.* (It is well to note 

* Tlii.s is an error. W. A. N. of Bayonne, N. J., kindly sent tlie foHow- 
ing notes on the Bryan-Maltbys to tlie Hartford W^eekly Times. Note 
12,202: "In the town records, on a loose scrap of paper. I found a note 
giving- the date of Mary Bryan's birth as February 15, 1649. As the first 
two leaves are missing from this book from 1639 to about 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 28, 1666, It certainly seems more likelv 
that she was born in 1649 than 1654. 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 birtli 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 Ehza- 
bethton. Province of New Jersey, as we find on Milford Records, 
Vol. 3. p. iS8, 8 July, 1677, a bequest of "£50 to the sd John Hard- 
man upon the ack. of his wife are from the estate of sd Mr. Richa.-d 
Bryan, her father.") It will be seen that Mary Bryan was at least 
thirteen years the junior of John Maltby ; 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 New Haven, Conn., d. about 1671." 

This record would make her but twelve or thirteen when mar- 
ried, and John Maltby was not dead in 1671, as the New Haven 
Records give the birth of his son, John (2). as "Born, John, son 
of John Maltby, i June, 1673." The Strong Genealogy says Mary 
(2) Maltby 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. 
Mr. Bryan made his will before 1679 and mentions: "To grand- 
children" (they were in reality great-grandchildren) "John and 
Mary Maltby. £5." (p. 1321, Baldwin Genealogy). He also deeded 
property in 1677 to his "granddaughter, Mary, widow of John 
Maltby." John Maltby was considered to be dead a year previous 
to this, however, for in \'ol. I., p. 175. of New Haven Records, is 
the following: 

"Jno. Maltbye. An inventory of the Estate of Mr. John Mall- 
bye, reported to be lost at sea and apprized by underwritters, loth

be many mistakes in the following copy.) :

As has previously been stated, this Inventory would appear to 
be part only of the property belonging to John Maltby. 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 ]\Ialtby, 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 New Eng. Hist, and 
Gen. Register. 


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

29th, 1602. His w. was Anna, only 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 i663 
to 1673 he was assistant Governor of the Colony of Connecticut 
and in Milford 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 William 

Peyntree left a large estate for those days, inventoried. 29 Nov., 
1649, at £1001 — 10 — 00, part of which went to his "daughter Mary, 
wife of Richard Bryan of Milford, Conn." 

IV. Mary Bryan, b. in 1649, m., first, about 1671. Mr. Jt^lin 
Maltby of New Haven. He was reported dead before 1677. About 
1680, she m., second. Rev. Joseph Talyor of Southampton. Long

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

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

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

1. John Maltby, probably b. 1640-41. 

2. Richard Maltby, bapt. 15 Aug., 1642, at Retford, evidently 
d. young. 

3. Jane Maltby, eldest daughter. 

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

5. Elizabeth Maltby, youngest daughter. 

6. Robert Maltby, bapt. 28 Dec, 1647. at Retford, X^itts. 

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 William 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 Maltby, 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 1689-90. 
(Was she named for their sister, Jane?) 

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

4. William Alaltby, 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 far as is 
known Americans bv the name of Maltby descend from WiUiam. Esq — for 
we know of no descendants of Robert, and the line of John (1) soon failed 
of male issue. 


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

Children by third wife, Abigail Bishop: 

7. Samuel Maltby, b. 1693. 

8. Jonathon Maltby, b. 1698. These may have been Bishop 
family names. 

Hannah Hosmer was b. about 1639 and m. March 20, 1657, 
Josiah Willard of Wethersfield ; as he did not die until 1674 his 
widow could not have been the mother of William Maltby'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 Mainwaring'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, Malby, £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 iio 
apiece to be paid them at the age of 21 years." ... "I 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. 

Signed : 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 William 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 Maltbie," "Hannah Maltbie." 

These are the 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 Newton; brother of the first James, freeman, 6 May, 1635: 
removed early, with Hooker, to Hartford, where he had a good 
estate ; selectman and representative several times ; had an only son, 
Stephen, b. about 1645; daus. Hannah, b. about 1639, who m., 20 

* There is room for iiuestion here as to whether Elizabeth and Daniel 
were children by a first wife or wliether they were tlie offspring of Han- 
nah Hosmer, widow of Josiali Willard. 


Alarch, 1657, Josiah Willard of Wethersiield ; he d. 1674. They 
were m. at Concord and had Samuel and Josiah at Hartford where 
he was schoolmaster and so employed at Wethersfield, where he had 
Dorothy, Simon, Stephen, Thomas, John and Hannah; freeman 
1665; became a trader, d. insolv. ; in 1686 his widow was wife of 

The Hosmers were from Hawkhurst, Co. Kent., where tlie 
records of their family go back to .1066. (Vide Xote No. 1809-1 by 
M. H. H. B., Boston Transcript. Sept. 28, 1914.) The earhest rec- 
ord possessed by the compiler is of Stephen Hosmer who was buried 
at Hawkhurst, Kent, ]\Iay 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, ]\Iass., in 1635 (Saybrook Record, or 1632, according to the 
Transcript). He died April 12. 1687 and his wife died Feb. 13, 
1675. Their daughter. Hannah, as we have shown, was the second 
wife of William ^Nlaltby. 

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. "]\Irs. Abigail ■\Ialtbei d. Oct. 24. 
1 710." See tombstone. 

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

We have endeavored to show from the names of William 
Maltby's children that there was a very close similarity wath those 
of his father's family, taking it for granted that John Maltby 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 New England calling the emigrant 

Maltbys "sons of IMaltby." as was the case with so manv of 

the early settlers. Another very strong proof that the East Ret- 
ford ^laltbys were the ancestors of the emigrants is the fact that 


out of the vast number of Alaltby records found, the only W'ilhani 
Maltby born in 1644-45 (which is the year the emigrant WilHam 
Maltby was born as is proved by his tombstone) is Wilham Maltby, 

son of John and Mary — Maltby, born at East Retford, March 

16, 1644-45. 

Another strong piece of evidence is the fact that no Maltby 
was assessed at Retford to the Hearth Tax of 1663. Xo Maltby was 
taxed at Bawtry circ. 1671. In fact there is every reason to believe 
that the John, William and Robert of East Retford, are the John, 
William and Robert of New 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 Maltby material included : Feet of Fines, Yorkshire, 1603- 
1666; Feet of Fines, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Alixed 
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 Marriage Licenses; Wills at Yorkshire, 1636- 1700; Baga 
de Secretic. 

As, to the lay mind, many of the above terms convey 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 I.) 

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 
by 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 plaintiff' side only. 
The chancery suits on the defendant side should be searched but it 
requires much time, as only the plaintiff side is alphabetically ar- 
ranged and we had not the funds to render this possible. 


Inquisitions Post Mortem. — 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: "No 
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 New World, 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 any 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, 2y Henry VIII., cap. 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 
vras by 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. 

Many thousands of the former deeds are enrolled in Chancery 
on the Close Rolls, the grantors being 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 Ofifice. Others are 
on the rolls of the King's Bench, Common Pleas, Exchequer, etc. 

The great attack on the (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 proA^ed 
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 neiq-liborhood 
of a hundred abstracts from Maltbv Wills, and as before stated. 


none of them (except the East Retford family) can be made to fit 
our needs, whereas the wills, deeds, etc., of the East Retford family 
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 Maltbys it has seemed best to give the com- 
plete abstracts as Mr. 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 Hali, Kexbie. Lincolnshire, Will proved 1557, so 
he was probably born about 1500. Who his father was is not known, 
possibly William Maltby of Ingham, Will dated 15 Aug., 1547, 
which mentions Son Robert, daughters, Elizabeth and Katherine. 
Mr. Thomas Burton to be supervisor. Wife Isabell and son John 
to be exors. John Jackson, John Colson, William Grave. Witnesses. 
Proved in Arch. Stow, 3 Feby., 1547-8, folio 477. 

The only reasons for believing this William Maltby 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 Margerie. 
However, the proved line of descent is as follows : 

I. John Maltby of Kexbie Hall, Kexbie, Lincolnshire. Wile, 
Margerie . Will proved 3 Dec, 1557. 

II. Richard Maultbye (son of the above), Kexbie, Lincoln- 
shire. Will proved last December, 1602. 

III. John Maltbie of Springthorpe, Lincoln. Wife, Margaret. 
Will proved 25 June, 1610. 

IV. John ]\Taltby of East Retford, Nottingham, Alderman. 
Wife, Mary. Will proved April, 1648. 

\^ John, oldest son, b. about 1640; William, second son, b. 
March 16, 1644-45; Robert, youngest son, b. Dec. 28, 1648. (They 
had 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 : 
I. Abstract of Will of JOHN Maltby of Kexbie Hall. Dated 
26 Nov., 1557. Burial at Upton. Alice Huggan, Richard Burr, 
Elizabeth Burr, Izabell Jackson. Daughters, Margaret, Izabell.* 
Wife Margerie & son Richard to be exors. Sons Richard & Wil- 
liam. Will Proctor & Christophert Maultby to be supervisors. 

* Prom the Upton burials we have this record: "Buried at Upton, 
Isabell Maltby. 20 May, 1,^86." 

t Christopher Maltby was evidently a kinsman, and may have been 
Christopher Maltby, Alderman of York, as it seems probable that the two 
families join not far back of this date. 


Richard Parke. Richard Watkinson, Alyles Proctor, Roger Dun- 
derdale. Witnesses. Proved in Cons, of Lincoln, 3 Dec, 1557, 31. 
Wife Margerie of above John JNIaltby may have been a Burr, 
as we find the name Richard and EHzabeth Burr. John's son, 
Richard, may have been named for Richard Burr. This, of course, 
is only a theory.

The foregoing records show our claim to four generations of 
Maltby 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.: 

* A-s the term "oxg-ang-" is old Eng-lish, we insert Webster's defini- 
tion of this word. "O.xgang (from ox and gang) old English laws. As 
much land as an ox can plow 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 sister of Richard and Robert Bishop. .John Maltbv was buried at Spring- 
thorpe, 27 May, 1610. 


The "Dwight Strong Genealogy," p. 354, states : "John Maltby, 
St., came with his brother, Wihiam, both of the rank of 'gentleman,' 
from Yorkshire, England, to Xew Haven, about 1670. 

The Xew Haven Hist. Soc. Papers, Vol. III., p. 265 in "Bald- 
win's Brantford Annals," gives: "Among the men who came to 
Branford soon after the Newark 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 Branford 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 by the 
new settlers, some of whom were possessed of considerable prop- 
erty. This was especially true of the Bartholomews, Alaltbies, Wil- 
fords, Greys, Stents, Goulds, Bakers," (query, Barkers?) "Barnes 
and Blackstones. . . . The Hoadley, Maltbie. Rose, Foote and 
Harrison families present so many names that were prominently 
identified with the church, town and business during this period, 
time fails me to speak individually of them." 

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

"The History and Antiquities of New England, New York. New 
Jersey and Pennsylvania," by John Warner Barker, makes the fol- 
lowing statement : "The New Haven Adventurers were the most 
opulent company which came to New England." 

It will be observed that William Maltby 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 
New Haven records under "Preliminary Remarks," : "Mr. and 
Mrs. anciently indicated rank, and had no reference to condition. 
Mrs. was often applied to unmarried as to married females. Among 
the first settlers of New Haven, or any other town, scarcely half 
a dozen men were honored with the prefix Mr. 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 clergymen 
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 unknown 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 Mr. William Maltbie of Branford." 

meant the same as in England, temp. Elizabeth and James I. Mr. 
Thomas Wells 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 Master (Mr.) 

Note. — Jonathon (2) ]\Ialtby'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 might 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 may be enriched in their turn with the same spurious 
currency. It may be observed by reference to our colonial records 
that there were scores of men of good family and in honorable 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. Mrs. was applied to the wives of Masters and also to 
unmarried females of the higher class." 

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

Palfrey, in "Hist, of New 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 their wives) had Mr. or ]\Irs. prefixed to 


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

In "Conn. Hist. Society Pub." Vol. III., p. 306, there is a sketch 
of Brandford ; in it is the following item : "The principal gentlemen 
of this town were Mr. Topping. Esq., John Wilford, Wm. Maltbie, 
Esq., Edward Barker." 

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

In Dexter's "Biog. and x\nnals 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 New Haven troop," which is correct as will be shown 
in later records, and which follow chronologically arranged as far 
as was possible. 

Ralph D. Smith in a letter dated "Guilford. Conn., 1866," says 
cf William and John Maltby : "They belonged to the rank of gentle- 
man, and were both engaged in commercial pursuits. John confined 
his business principally to the sea, William engaged both on the 
sea and the land." 

Henry Rogers of New Haven, aged 84. wrote the compiler : 
"William Maltby was a justice of the quorum (or judge 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 Maltby is to 
be seen on the Church Covenant at Branford in 1667. (Branford 
Town records. Vol. I., p. 319, Ecclesiastical Records, Vol. 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 Maltby's signature seemed to me to be after the reor- 


ganization of the church and not before. Also from the deed 
of John Maltby, 1672, in which he calls William Maltbie "now- 
residing in New Haven," it would appear that he was but lately 
come to New England.* 
1672. March 29th. Deed of John Maltby to William Maltby. See 
under notes concerning John Maltby. 

1672. May I. "Mary, dau. of Mr. William Maltbye. b. at New 
Haven (p. 131, N. H. Records). 

1673. Jan. 9. William, son of Mr. William Maltby. Recorded at 

Note. — This is, of course, "old style." The year formerly commenced 
March 2Sth. During the period from 1685 to 1690, when efforts began to 
be made to change the time of the New Year from March 25, to Jan. 1 ; 
the time when such was effected was about the year 1750, all dates from 
Jan. 1, to March 25, were doubly designated. Consequently the above date 
should read 1673-4 and William would be twenty months the junior of Mary. 

1673. April. William Maltby purchases his mansion house and 
land at Branford, witnessed by Robert Maltbye. (See record.) 
1672. May I. 

1672. Sept. 18. "John Harrison sold to Wm. Maltby a black horse, 
marked," etc. (Branford Rec, Vol. I., p. 376). 

1673. May 16. "The court accepts of the list of Troopers pre- 
sented by Captayn John Nash, and Captayn Thomas Topping, 
for New Haven County, and doe confirm Captayn Topping to 
be Captayn and Mr. William Maltby to be Cornet," (i.e. lieuten- 
ant) "of the sayd Troope" (Colonial Records of Conn., 1665- 
1667, p. 199; M.S.S. Printed Records, Vol. 2, p. 199). 

1673. June 2. New Haven Colony Rec, p. 83 ; "Know all men 
by these presences that I Garry Gratwick of Branford in the 
county of Newhaven doth alienate ( ?) and make over to George 
Page of the aforesaid towne and coimtye a parcell of land lay- 
ing in Canon ( ?) brooke quarter, comonly so called being about 
nine acres more or less, bounded with Wm. Maltbye's land on the 
east side and on the west, withe the common on the north, with 
the River on the south, as also a parcell of meadow being about 
2 acres more or less lying in Cannonbrook quarter, bounded with 
William Maltbye's byland ( ?) eastward, etc." 

* A letter written by Ralph D. Sniitli, dated "1866" says apropos of 
this record: "Mr. Wm. Maltbv's name anpears amons the last of the signers 
of the second Branford Church Covenant of 1667. 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 was 
originally drawn up. on his coming- to Branford. which was certainly late 
in 1672 or earlv 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." 


Note. — 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. 

1673. April 16. Deed. Know all whom it may concern that I,

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

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

and M. on ye neer shoulder; naturally marked with a brood 
star on forehead, above ye signe." (Bran. Rec. A'ol. I., p. 368). 

XoTE. — Possibly the "T" stood for Tottokel, the Itidian name for Bran- 
ford, the "M" was of course for >Maltbj\ 

1674. Branf. Rec. p. 144-147: "Wm. ]\Ialtbye was chosen con-

1676. A list of estates in 1676 gives ^^Ir. JMaltbye £103. 00s, ood. 
There were thirty planters in the list. Airs. Cushman writes 
that none of the estates in the list reached the sum of £200. 

1676-7. March 19. \\'illiam Maltby's name appears as witness 

of a sale (Branf. Rec, A'ol. I., p. 412).

1678. Feb. 25. He was "appointed to lav out land" (Bran. Rec. 
Vol. I., p.^63).

XoTE. — Here we liave 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?) 

* Tills name should, I feel sure, be Harrlman and not Harrison as the 
eoi:)y sent me read. My own copy of this record reads: "Vol. I p. 131. At 
a Towne meeting, 1 August. 1678. The towne have unanimously agreed to 
give Mr. John Harriman an invitation or call to come amongst us tn 
carry on ye work of ve ministry in Branford and ve towne have appointed

Note. — The following items from the Branford Records. Vol. II., are 
copied without date, but immediately follow the above record.

of the way that leads to his field."

reasons for his dissisting his work." 

Note.— From 1672, when William Maltby's name first appears upon the 
Colony records, until the above date, March 27, 1682, the name of William 
Maltby appears upon the records every year. But from 1682 till 1685, I 
find no mention of it. Would the death of his first wafe account for this? 
or is it possible that he returned to England during this period? 

1685. Feb. 27. The will of Thomas Hosmer of Hartford, Conn., 
mentions his daughter, "Hannah Malby," and further on his 
"son-in-law, Malby." 

1685. May 14. Mr. Wm. Maulby and Lieut. Eli Stint were elected 
deputies from Branford (Colonial Records of Conn., Vol. III.,

Williard, "wife of William Maltbv in 1686."

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. 

Wm. Alaltbye was chosen one of the delegates and his name 
is among those appended to the petition. Airs. 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." (Vol. I., pp. 84, 85. See 
also Colonial Records, p. 216). This petition was granted. They 
had previously, April 12, 1686, given Air. 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 Alanual. p. 12. Also Gil- 
lette'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 ofif a part of its people who formed 
a third society called Xorthford." (Gillett's Sermon, pp. 11-12).

1687. March. (Branford Records, Vol. II., p. ^6) : "The town 
have given to Mr. Wm. Maltby two acres of land on the west 
side of the way that leads to his field against John Whitehead's 
land at Scotch Cap and have appointed Jno. Whitehead and Jhno. 
Rose to lay it out. . . . The town have appoyntd Mr. Alaltbie. 
Ensign Harrison and Samuel Bradfield to view a parcell of 
land neer dod's swamp wh. William Hoadley desires the grain 
of and they are to make report thereof to the town." 
William Maltbie, Commissioner and Justice of Peace, per- 
formed the followino- marriages: (New Haven Records). 









* Samuel Russell was the minister and in consefiuence had 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, by George Dimmick Latimer. "On one 
side" (the church) "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 1689, I can find no mention of the name 
of William Maltby," 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. HI., p. 195.) 

Editor's Note. — This fact suggests the thought that William Maltby was 
away from New 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. Very probably he visited England at this

"To all Christian persons to whom this present act and deed 
shall come, know ye, etc., etc. I, William Maltbie of Branford, 
Esq., in the Colony of Connecticut, in New England sendeth greet- 
ing. Know ye that I, the sd William Maltbie, for and in consid- 
eration of a valuable sum in hand, already paid by Jonathon Atwater 
of New Haven, in New England af oresd, for and towards the build •

William Maltby's son. William, was captain of this brigantine, 
"Friends Adventure," as we learn from a New Haven Record, Vol. 
II., p. 52, under date "3 Dec. 1700. William Maltbie of New- 
Haven, master of ye Brigantine ffriends Adventure." It was shortly 
after this that William Maltby. junior, lost his life in the West 

Rev. Jonathon (4), in a paper written in 1848, says: "In the 
inventory of Wm. Maltby are quite a number of vessels.* Bran- 

* riev. Jo7iathon Maltby very evidently had seen some inventory un- 
known to us. It may be that it would be among-st the Custom House rec- 
ords of New Haven. Another descendant of the earlier generations wrote: 
"Our emigrant ancestor owned three vessels, all of them full of cargo at 
the same tims in New Haven harbor." The exact quotation is mislaid, 
but if memory is not at fault, it came from a grandchild of Samuel (2'> 
Maltbv. Addenda. Tliis statement reads: "One of the Maltbys owned 
tHree ships with cargoes afloat at the same time." — Selina (6) Maltby. 
John (5). 

*A further search of this record reads, after the word "tons": "liavo 
given, granted, bargained, sold, convey, confirmed and firmly made over 
unto him the 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, t an old gentleman, than in New 
Haven. The merchants, he said, purchased their West India goods 
in Branford. The farmers in Northford 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, Benjamin Alaltby (3) and others raised 
abundance for the market. In my boyhood I went with my father 
(Benjamin) (3), grandson of the emigrant, William (i) Alaltby. 
when he carried his effects and was well pleased to see the vessels."

Hournble Sr — ^After our condolence with yor Hour 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 too late to send for Engld for ye divertion of dangers 
from the present sessions of Parliam't, there seems to be no occation 
for a General Court as yett ; but it may be a good service for ye 
Colony if the Governrs Hounr with advice of his Council would 
hasten letters to Sr Henery, requesting a speedy and full account 
of our aft'airs, what probabilities 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 agent to be sent, next ]\Iay Court 
may hasten one unto him. 

\Ye have also thought if the Hounble Governr & Council would 
ciraw an address to ye Queen's Majestie, therein plainly representing 
the true state and interest of this Colony how much our fathrs and we 
have confided in royal 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 we 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 with in- 
structions under necessary conection to present ye same to her 
Majestic 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 town 
patents being insufficient to settle or 8 counties & to order some 
other things of great consequence befr we die. These (with our 
humble service ofifered to yor Hounr) are submitted to yor correc- 
tion by yor humble servants.

is granted by this Court to ye worshipfull Mr. William Maltbie

In order that descendants mav form some idea as to the impor- 
tance in the early days of the above estate we quote from the 
N. E. H. & (;. R..'p. yj^. Vol. hXlY : "At William Peyntree's death 
in Connecticut, he left a large estate inventoried. 29 Nov., 1649. at 
£1001, 00s, cod, to his widow IMargaret, son John and his daughter 
Marv, wife of Richard Brvan of Milford. Conn." 


Note. — ]\Iary Peyntree was the mother of Alary Bryan, wife of John 
Maltby, Esq. 

This inventory was taken some sixty years before that of Wil- 
ham Mahby, which makes some difference in the relative value of 
the two estates, but in 17 lo, an estate of ^1058 was a goodly in- 
heritance and William ]\Ialtby was one of the most substantial men 
in Branford. 

After the death of William Maltby there was some litigation 
over the estate as is shown by a New Haven Probate Record, viz. : 

"John Alaltbie of Saybrook, one of the legatees of Mr. William 
Maultby, late of Branford, Dec'd., did offer ye evidence of Samuel 
and Miriam Pond to shew that through the Neglect of ye vScribe 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. But inso- 
n,uch ty none of yet Interests were present nor cited to bee, ye 
Court do decline acting in ye affair." 

\^ol. IV., p. 94: "The Testymonie of Samll Pond and Miriam 
Pond : These Deponents testyfie and say they being with Mr. Wil- 
liam ]\Iaultby of Branford, Dec'd, when he. sd Maultby made his 
last will, heard said Maultby say he gave sixty four acres of his 
land at Sebce hil 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 23rd, 1 712, the above named Samuel Pond and Miriam Pond 
made solemn oath to ye truth of the above written testymony before 
Abraham Fowler, Asst. John IMaltby of Saybrook, who desires ye 
above testymonie affirmed to me ye subscriber yt he had notified all 
ye persons concerned in ye above William Maltby's estate to be 
present at time and place above said, but none of them present.

Mr. Joseph Tuttle on behalf of John Maltby. Daniel Maltby, 
David Parker in right of his wife and Abraham Hoadley in right 
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 Maltby, Daniel Maltby, David Parker and 
Abraham Hoadley appeals to the Court of Assistants to be held at 
Hartford in May next, John Maltby, Daniel Maltby, David Parker 
and Abraham Hoadley principals, and Matthew Gilbert and Samuel 
Cooper surety s 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 New Haven, to 
prosecute their said appeale to the ofifset 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 Maltby, 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 
mdicate that John, Jane, Elizabeth and Daniel had the same mother. 

Note. — -William, 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 large 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 Maltby, and these biographies now follow. 


John Maltby, oldest son of William Maltby, Esq., was born, 
according to Mr. Ralph D. Smith, in 1670. Where he was born 
and the name of his mother are not known. 

"Branford Annals," by Baldwin ( N. H. Hist. Soc. Papers, 
Vol. III., p. 269) has this paragraph, referring to him : "March 9, 
1687-8, John Rosewell, Samuel Hoadley, Jon. Foote, Josiah Frisbie, 
William Barker, John Maultbie and Isaac Bartholemew were granted 
a parcel of land a mile square in the N. 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 North Bran- 
fird since." 

Mr. Ralph D. Smith wrote concerning John Alaltby : "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 Maltby went 
to Saybrook to live until sometime after 1694, w4ien he would have 
been twenty-four years of age, as we find these records in Branf ord : 
1682. "Land was given by the town to Jno. Maltbye, about 1682. 

On page 43 of "Branford Annals" we find the following: 

"North Branford. In 1687, March 4. John ]Maltbie (also spelled 
Maultbie). He was probably a son of William ^Nlaultbie." Also: 
"March 21, 1700, John ]\Iaultbie removes to New London and sells 
to his father William." 

1686. "John Maltbye makes his mark ( -[- ) to an agreement that 
Jno. Rosewell have his land in one piece, March 8. 1686-7. (Bran. 
Rec, Vol. n., p. T,y) . \\'hy he should have made his mark at 16 
years of age, with his father so fine a penman is a question, unless 
he were ill at the time. 

Rev. Jonathon (4) Maltby wrote of him: "of Yale 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 ]\Ialtbie entered his earmark, which is a hollow 
crop, on the top of the near ear, and a crop on the off ear, and a 
slit in the same ear, April 17, 1694. (Bran. Rec, Vol. L, p. 223). 
Between this date and 1699, his father purchased a place for him 
in Saybrook, probably at the time of his marriage in 1696. 

According to i\Ir. Ralph Smith and to Mr. Francis Parker of 
Hartford, John Maltby 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 Aug. 13, 1696. 

1699. In this year we find the following item : "I John ]\Ialtbie 
of Saybrook, sell to my honored father, Wm. Maltbie of Branford, 
for the sum of £8 a piece of land. etc. March 15. 1699. Acknowl- 
edge before 

Wm. ^Maltbie, Justice Peace. 

(Bran. Rec. A'ol. IT., p. 129; also New Haven Countv Court Rec. 
Vol. II., p. 3.) 


The L5ranford Records. \"ol. II., p. 44, contains this item: "John 
Maltbie, among others receives 8 acres in Branford and promises to 
improve it. 

1713, Sept. 30. "Henry Cook of Cranford deeds to John JMalt- 
bie of Saybrook" for good causes and considerations "land in Bran- 
ford (Bran. Rec. Vol IV., p. 246). 

The will of John IMaltby is dated ]\Iarch Ji. 1727, recorded 
and proved Sept. 12, 1727. It mentions wife Hannah, children John, 
Nathaniel, Hannah, Mary, Jane and Dorothy. He gave each of

wife Hannah executrix. John Alaltby, according to Mr. Ralph 
Smith, "died August — 1727. at the age of 57." His will is wit- 
nessed by "Samuel Williard.""*

KoTE.— The 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 Abrani 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) Hodgkin was born April 9. 1731, and married 
March 20. 1755, Sarah Stone. He died "about 1852 at an advanced 
age" according to Dr. C. B. Maltbie. He was the oldest child of 
Hannah (3) Maltbie, 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) 

Maltbie, and the granddaughter of Wilham (i) and Mary ? 


According to 'Sir. Ralph D. Smith, of Guilford, John (2) ]\Ialtby 
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 Nov. 
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. 1726"' put on. This perhaps is the 
most natural explanation. Indeed, "What could you tell of our 
ancestor!" Could we but discover some secret drawer or hiding 
place in you — with a bit of yellowed paper, telling something of those 
who brought you over seas — what a happy find that would be ! 


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 ^Nlarch, 1689. and we judge was probably 
borne about 1671. 

Her marriage is recorded at New Haven, Conn., p. 131, as fol- 
lows : "David Parkor and Jane INIalby were maryod the 4 March, 

A Branford Deed, Vol. HL, p. 280, states that: "David Parker 
of Say Brook in the County of New 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 right in the estate of our Honrd Father, Mr. William Malt- 
bie, late of Branford, dec'd. 

Daniel Maltbie. 17 Jan., 1710-11. 

Samuel Maltbie. 

David Parker and Jane ^Maltby very evidently had no children. 

Mr. Francis Parker of Hartford, Conn., very kindly furnished 
the following records : "David Parker, son of William and Margery 

Parker, was born in Saybrook, the latter end of February, 

1657-8." In May 1682 the General Assembly exempted him from 


the payment of poll taxes because he was "disabled from attending 
to his business by a wound in the head." No 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 and 1706, and was constable in 1698. 
He also held many minor town offices. 

David and Jane (Alaltbie) -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 Nathaniel 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. 
two 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 

Note. — William 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 ]\Ialtby, Jr.. was born Jan. 9, 1673-4, at New Haven, 
Conn., and was a child of a first wife. He resided in Xew Haven 
previous 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 w^as captain, and his father 
owner, riding at anchor in the harbor. The Trowbridge Genealogy, 
p. 52, tells us that "Hezekiah Sabin came to New Haven about 1743. 
He bought of the heirs of William Maltbie, the house on the corner 
of W^ater and L^nion streets, near the Creek." 

William Maltby, Jun., married Elizabeth Morris, daughter of 
John Morris. He evidently was of Branford in 1690, for in that 
year he joined the church there. I think he removed to New Haven 
about the time of his marriage, as we find this record: (New Haven 
Town Records, Vol. II.. 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 New 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. Abigail Bishop, third wife of William 
Maltby, Sr., was a sister of Hannah (Bishop) INIorris, and therefore own 
aunt to Elizabeth Morris Maltby and step-mother to her husband, William 
Maltby, Jr. 

"William Maltby was a sea captain and died in the AVest Indies. 
1701, aged only 27," 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 West Indies." From the 
few records which follow we can see that he left New Haven in 
December, 1700. as "Master of the Friend's Adventure." and never 
returned to his wife and infant son. 

1700. Dec. 3. "Wm. Maltbie. Master of ye Brigantine fifriend's 
Adventure, made complaint against Daniell Thomas of said New 
Haven, for absenting himself from the vessel without leave." (New 
Haven Records of County Court. \"ol. II.. p. 52.) And again in 
Vol. II.. p. 53 : "Wm. Maltbie of New Haven. Master of ye Brigaii- 
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. William Maltby died without a will. 


Vol. II., p. 65, New Haven Records has the following: 
"At a Court of Probate held at New Haven, April ye 30th day, 

Present William Maltbie,

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 England, purchased commodities for the Island trade and 
returned with "full cargoes." 

"Debts due ye estate in Barbadoes." This is important and 
certainly looks as though the Alaltbys 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. 

Why Elizabeth Morris should have signed 'M. Maltbie, widow," 
as executrix, is puzzling. There is no question as to who the widow 
of William, Jr., was — she was Elizabeth Morris and this is proved 
by all records. 

There is a bill of Samuel Coloys of Milford for £6, i6s, ood.

Until 1 712, Mrs. Elizabeth (Morris) Maltbie seems to have 
lived with her father, or perhaps we should say her father lived 
with her in New Haven. In 17 12 Mr. Morris died, and in 171 3.

Elizabeth Maltby was born April 30, 1676, at New Haven. She 
married Abraham, son of William Hoadley, March 14, 1697-8. She 
died Dec. 14, 1747. He died July 14, 1748, "advanced in years," in

Daniel Maltby was born May 19, 1679, according to the Bran- 
ford Records. He united with the church at Branford in 1700. 
Esther Moss, 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 early 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 York 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 

ar Elton in 1688. 

4. Rev. John Lothrop, 12th child of above, was born at Elton, 
East Riding, Yorks., 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. New London, Conn., 
married Elizabeth Scudder, Nov. 28, 1644. 

6. Mary Lothrop, daughter of above, married John Moss. 

7. Esther Moss, daughter of above, born Jan. 5, 1678, mar- 
ried Daniel Maltby. 

Daniel Maltby married Esther Moss (Morse) October 2^, 1702 
(Branford Records. \o\. 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. Vol. I., p. 224). 

1705. April 12. "At a meeting of the Proprietors in Bran- 
ford commencing March 25, and closing April 12, 1705, Daniel 


Alaltbie desired them to give him about 2 acres of sedgy land, 
which was granted" (Branf. Rec, Vol. 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 Maltby was appointed guardian to 
Jonathon ]\Ialtbie, minor, son of Wm. Maltbie of Branford, de- 
ceased" (New Haven Probate Rec, V'^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 New Haven records, we find : "Jonathon Maultbie, Minor, child 
of Mr. William Maultbie, Late of Branford did appear and made 
choice of Mr. Edward Barker of Branford for to be his guardian." 

171 1. October 15. "In staking out lots on Mulliner's Neck 
D. M. was to stand for Daniel Maltbie" (Branf. Rec, Vol. I., p. 342). 

The following items are from the Branford Records : Vol. III., 
p. 81. Deed to Daniel Maltbie from /\llen Ball. In a list of Free- 
men in Branford, 1714 to 1730 (Branford Records) the name of 
Daniel Maltby is i8th on the list.

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

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. D. 1 73 1, in the morning." (Branford Records, Vol.j' 1694.) 

His plain and tasteful tombstone reads : 
Mr. Daniel Maltbie 
Died Dec. 25, 1731 
In 53d year." 
At the end of Christmas day, 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 (Connecticut Marriages Branford). Also "Tut- 
tle Family Genealogy, page 325. This states : "June 20th." The New 
Haven Records read : "Mrs. Esther Maltby of Branford arid 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 Mary. William 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 Moss Maltby were : 
T. Mary. b. Dec. 7. 1703 (Branford Rec, Vol. I., p. 211). 

2. William, b. Feb. 17. 1705 (Branford Rec, Vol. I., p. 211).

This inventory shows one much, I beheve, of this many 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 
bis 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 occupy 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 New 
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 ]\Ialtbie, 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 
hfe 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 
heredity which teaches us the patience of toil, the homiliness of the 
big fireside and the joys of life in the open. 

* So many 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, taut this has now been discovered by Miss 
Ethel Lord Scofleld of East Haven. Conn. She was Elizabeth Pratt. Her 
ancestrv has been verv kindlv conrtibuted by Mr. Douglas B. Thompson 
of W^ashlngton. 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. 16.55." The "Descend- 
ants of John Pratt," published in 1S44, states that "Elizabeth Pratt married 
AVllliam Moulbe and nothing further has been ascertained of her." This is 
evidently an error, for we find Noah (4) Maltby. son of Capt. Joseph (3) 
"chooses his uncle Moses Pratt of Hartford. Guardian." In old manuscripts 
it is claimed that Joseph (3) Maltby entered Yale College, but did not 
graduate on account of ill health. Rev. 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 Maltby 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 Branford, 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. Cushman's Address on Samuel AIaltry (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 ! 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 William, 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 Maltbys to fill in the 
background for any sketch of our American forbears. We can now 
see John (ij and Alargerie of five hundred years ago with their 
four children: Richard (2) and his three: John (3) and Margaret 
with seven; John (4) and Alary with five — three of whom came to 
this New World about 1670, viz : John, William and Robert. 

It is as the descendants of William that we are gathered at 
Branford to commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of his 
oeath. 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. No one has learned the name of his 
first wife, the mother of two sons and two daughters. The second 
wife, Hannah Hosmer was undoubtedly 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 New Haven, and was born at that place Oct. 30, 
1659. I have found no date of her marriage, 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. Vol. 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. Mr. 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 begun to appreciate their value and voted that, "no one 


remove them from their 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 

Who made up the family 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 yet married 
and moved to Saybrook. Mary probably died. William loved the 
sea, married and moved to New Haven, became Captain of "ye 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 from Yale in 1712, be- 
fore he was nineteen, in a class of two, the other being young 
Russel, son of the Branford pastor. Rev. Samuel Russell, in whose 
house Yale College was founded. During his college course Samuel 
was bereaved by 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, 
and 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 Branford, Decem- 
ber, 1691, and so was a year and a half older than her husband. 
The ceremony was performed by Nathan Harrison, justice of the 
peace, as was the custom of that time. The graves of her ])arents, 
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. ^Ir, Gillete's possession. It was written by the first 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 
year, commencing from the first of January, 1719 ( ?), and have en- 
gaged him thirty pounds passable money . . . his labor. 

"Paid to S. Maltbie 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. IV. of Branford Records was very 
gratifying: "Deed. Oct. 26, 1719. Samuel & Jonathon Alaltbie of 
Branford, being fully persuaded it was ye mind and will of our 
Honrd. Father Willm. ^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 Mill 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, Vols. L and IL Had the spirit 
of speculation already descended upon the earliest colonists of that 
section ! 

Samuel was town clerk in Branford from December, 1721, to 
November 22d, 1746, a period of twenty-five years. The records 
are in his handwriting from Vol. IW. page 384 to Vol. VL, page 602. 

It is a find round hand, easily read, and pleasant to the eyes of 
his great, great, great, great-granddaughter ! 

In lanuarv, 1724-5, a license was granted him tn keep a tavern 
in his now dwelling house until County Court in April. 1726. Bond 
of £20. This was renewed to "Capt. Samuel Maltbie" 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, "Vol. 
III. Ecclesiastical," I found Samuel Maltbie's name signed to a peti- 
tion, ]\Iay 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. Next 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 
w^as 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 
in 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 Northford and it is probable Captain Samuel had moved from 
Branford Center to Northford — 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 No. 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 Maltby house in existence? It has been sug- 
gested that the Association purchase it for a Repository and Rally- 
ing place ! 

The children of Captain Samuel (2) were Abigail. James and 
Rebecca, who died before their father; Samuel (3) Jr., Alary 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. William, 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 the Northford "God's Acre" with the exception of 
the first, our common ancestor. 

The following records were largely furnished by ]\Irs. Cushman 
and arranged and added to by the compiler. 



Samuel Maltby is called Captain and Squire. He was born at 
Branford, Aug. 7, 1693, ^"^1 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.) 

171 2. He was graduated at Yale College in the class of 171 2 

with the degree of A.B., at the age of 19 (Yale Triennial Catalogue). 
His father's death occurred during his college course, and on Jan. 
13, 1712-13, we find, at a Court held this date, "Samuel Maultby, 
minor, of Branford, by Samuel Bishop, his overseer and next friend, 
and William Maultby, of New Haven, minor, by Elizabeth Maultby, 
his mother and next friend, plaintiffs contra Henry Cook of Bran- 
ford. yeoman and defendant." 

1715. Samuel Maltby married Elizabeth Barker, Dec. 8, 1715. 
(She was born in Branford, Dec. 1691, Bran. Rec. Vol. H.) The 
ceremony was performed by Nathan 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 I am 
indebted to (Mrs.) Frances Harrison Corbin of New Haven.)

ford to reside when his matlier married Rev. Jolin Davenport.

1743. Case of debt (\'ol. IW, p. 191). 

1744. Case of debt (Vol. IV., p. 224). 

1740. In connection with Capt. Samuel Alaltby it would 
perhaps be w^ell to turn to Part I. under date 1740. and read the 
article copied from Thomas Hutchinson's History of Massachusetts, 
which refers to "Air. jMaltby, 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 bring 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 Alaltby. son of William, Esq. We 
know of no other Samuel Alaltby 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, Vol. N., 207. Xormand Alorrison of Hart- 
ford, etc., iiooo to Samuel Alaltby of Boston in the Co. of Suffolk 
and province of Alass. Bay, Alerchant, two parcells of land lying 
in the town of Bedford in the Co. of Hampshire. 1238 acres. 

"20 April, 1743." 

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 Alaltby married Ann Dyer at Boston, April 
30, 1739." This is evidently the same Samuel as of Deed dated 


Information of the above people requested.

the same town, a parcell of land in the township of Branford at a 
place called Pipestone Hill, containing about 20 acres, known by the 
name of Maltbie's Pasture." 17 Feb., 1752. 

The following Land Record from Branford, Vol. VI., dated 
Jan. 7, 1758, is worth inserting here: 

"We, Edward Barker of Branford. John Barker of Walling- 
fcrd, Jonathon Russell and Eunice Russell of Branford. (Probably 
she was Eunice Barker.) and John Tully and Mary Tully* of Say-

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. 

For a full account of the descendants of Capt. Samuel Maltby 
see Maltby Genealogy. 

Additional Notes of the Descendants of Samuel (2) Maltby 

Samuel (3) Maltby m. (i) Abigail Wilford, and (2) Rebecca 
Foote. Child by first wife was Abigail. By second wife: Samuel, 
James, Jonathon and Rebecca. 


Elizabeth (3) Maltby, believed to have died unmarried. 

Mary (3) Maltby m. William Gould, Jr. She had a son, Sam- 
uel Gould. There may have been other children. 

Sarah (3) Maltby m. Edward Russell of Branford. Children 
were John, Sarah, Mary, Abigail and Abigail. 


Jonathon Maltbie. the eighth child of William Maltby 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. II.) He was baptized 
the same month. (Branf. Ch. Records, in M.S.) 

In March, 171 5. 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 Wm. Maltbie of Branford, deceased" (New 
Haven Probate Rec, Vol. III., 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 Maultbie, Minor, choose Mr. Ed- 
ward Barker of Branford to be his guardian." (New Haven Pro- 
bate Rec, p. 66, Vol. I. ?) 

1718-19, Jan. License was granted to Jonathon Maltbie of 
Branford to practice the art and mystery of a tanner" (County 
Court Rec. of New Haven, Vol. III., 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 Maltbie divide the land 
given them by their father (Branf. Rec, Vol. IV., p. 399). 

1719, Oct. 26. Deed. "Samuel and Jonathon Maltbie of 
Branford being fully persuaded it was ye mind and will of our 
Honrd Father, Wm. 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 generosity 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 Maltbie of Stamford, gentle- 
man, gives land to Edward Barker in Branford" (Branf. Rec, Vol. 
IV., p. 446). 

1722, April 16. "Jonathon Maltbie of Stamford, cordwainer. 
sells Samuel Maltbie of Branford, 2 acres and 3 rods of land in 
Branford. for iio" (Branf. Rec, Vol. IV.. p. 426). 

XoTE. — Here we lind 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 Maltbie, of Branford, 10 
acres of land, being Jonathon's share of the home lot, given him 
by his father, William" (Branf. Rec, Vol. IV.. p. 445). 

1723, March 25. "Jonathon ]\Ialtbie of Stamford, gentleman, 
for £38 — 10 gives to his brother, Samuel Maltbie, of Branford, his 
interest in Cow pasture, i6>4 acres" (Branf. Rec, Vol. IV., p. 478). 

The History of Stamford says the first mention of Jonathon 
Maltbie is made among those who came in between 1643 &"cl the 

Jonathon Maltbie 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 
Major ]\Ialtbie. 

N. 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 Maltby was 
Captain of Company 2 in the French and Indian war. 

In the records of the First Church, begun Jan. i, 1747, is the 
name of "Jonathon Maltbie, Esqre." 

Quoting again from Huntington : ".A.mong the town notables 
of that day, 1746, were Col. Jonathon Hoyt. Captain Jonathon Malt- 
bie and Mr. Abraham Davenport." 


The Children of Jonathon and Mrs. Sarah (Potter) jNIaltbie 

1. Jonathon, b. June 29, 1720. 

2. Abigail, b. Aug. 26, 1725, at Stamford. 

3. David, b. Feb. 7, 1727. 

4. Sarah, b. July 5, 173 1, at Stamford. 

5. Mary, b. March 14, 1733, at Stamford. 

6. Hannah, b. Oct. 30, 1741, at Stamford. 

7. David, b. May 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 Mrs. Sarah Potter 
Maltby we are indebted to Aliss Ethel Lord Scofield of New Haven 
and regret that time prohibited the copying of his inventory. 

The Will of Captain Jonathon (2) Maltbie of Stamford

my Just Debts and funeral Charges & the above Legacy to my 
Grandson are paid I Give Bequeath & Devise unto my Loving and 
Beloved wife, Sarah Maltbie, to be unto her and to her heirs & 
assigns forever. Further the Reason why I Do not in this my will 
give any of my Estate to any of my Children or to the Children 
of my Dec'd Son David is not because I have forgot them or have

The will of Sarah Maltbie. widow of Jonathon (2) Maltbie. 
Esq. ( Stamford Probate Records. Vol. III., p. 408) : 

In the name of God Amen. 

I. Sarah Maltbie of Stamford in Fairfield County & Connecti- 
cut Colony in New England being of Sound mind & memory for 
which God Almighty be Thanked yet being advanced in years & 
Labouring Under bodily Sickness and knowing that it is appointed 
for all J\Ien once to die and not knowing how soon my Change 
may come do now make my Last Will & Testament as followeth, 
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 buried in a decent 
Christian Manner according to the Discretion of my Executor here- 
after named having hope in the Resurrection of the Just & touching 
such worldly Estate as it hath pleased the Divine Bounty to Bless 
me with while in this life my Will is that first my Just Debts & 
funeral charges shall be paid, the Remainder I Give Devise & Be- 
queath in the following manner & form, viz. : 

Imprimis. My wearing apparel I Give & Bequeath unto my 
three Daughters, viz. : Abigail Squire, Mary Waterbery & Hannah* 
Buckley to be equally Divided among them & to their own abso- 
lutely & forever. 

Item. The Remainder & Residue of my Estate I Give Devise 
& Bequeath unto my two loving Daughters, viz. : Abigail Squire & 
Mary Waterbury to be equally Divided between them and to be 
unto them the sd Abigail & Mary and to their Heirs & Assigns 

Further. The Reason why I do not give my Daughter Hannah 
an equal share with her Sisters is not for want of an equal afifection 
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 Maltbie is not for want of a Suit- 
able afifection 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 
mv Last Will & Testament & I hereby give him full power & author- 
ity to sell of my Real Estate what shall be needful to pay my Debts 
& the Debts of my Dec'd Husband hereby Revoking & Disanulling 
all and every other former Will & Testament by me made and 


Ratifying & Confirming this and no other to be my last Will & 
Testament in witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and 
seal the 24th day of April, A. D. 1770.

Note. — Mrs. Alaltbie was aged and feeble when she made her will, hence 
the "mark" ; this does not in any way 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 Fairfield, Connecticut, is the Bulkley 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 Brids;eport Daily Standard, Alarch 11, 1916, publishes 
a photograph of this old Colonial home and also an interesting 
article on the history of the Bulkleys, by Helen Harrison, from 
v/hich we quote the most important items. 

"The Bulkle}' 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" manor, or as it was spelled in ancient days, "Buclough." 
He lived at the manor during 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 New 
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 Miss Harrison's article, presents the side 
open to the fire of the British guns.) 

It is said that one of the old shingles 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 Bulkley house, hastened to the fort on Grovers 
Hill witht Lieutenant Jarvis." Mr. 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 effects 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; Alaltbie, 8; Sarah. 5, and Mary, 3. This hurried 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 refuge 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 more valuable possessions. 
Some of the lovely old blue china, brought by the trading vessels 
from the famous potteries 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 Mrs. F. W. 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." (Mr. F. C. Morehouse, a 
member of the Maltby Association, owns an old powder horn which 
belonged to this Maltbie 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 got away, the British made a 
landing in spite of the fire from the fort, and of the bold front 
maintained 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 Tryon 
had promised that this and the other houses near it should be saved 
because of the aid given him by the brother of Mrs. Jonathon 
Bulkley, who lived opposite. A scout followed in the trail of the 
invaders to put out 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 
rashly nor timidly," and the records of the little red salt-box house 
during the troublesome times of the Revolution showed that the 
motto was a fitting one. 

We append a short note concerning the children of Jonathon 
(2) Alaltbie. 

Jonathon (3) Maltbie mar. Abigail Holmes of Greenwich, 
Conn., and had an only child, Jonathon (4). b. Dec. 7, 1744. He 
became Captain ]\Ialtbie. See his biography. 

Abigail (3) Alaltbie 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 Newman, descend Mr. Henry Brown Dayton, Mrs. 
Samuel Bradlee Doggett, and Mrs. William Davis Patterson, whose 
names will be found on the membership list. 

Mary (3) Maltbie mar. Major David Waterbury. of Stamford, 

Hannah (3) Maltbie mar. Ebenezer Bulkley.

"A Spartan mother !" 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 
]ylay seem this rugged bit of earth ; 
Unsmiling, stern, forbidding, — yea, 
Repellant, with its skies of gray. 

But We, who know and love to trace 
Each line upon our Mother's face. 
We know, as loving children should, 
Her every phase and trait and mood. 

We know her iron-bound coasts that ring 
To Ocean's age-old buiTeting; 
Unconquerable, squared to "face the front," 
And take — of what may come — the brunt. 

We 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 
]\Iurmur and breathe in the keen salt breeze 
While out from the pine needles' sheltering, 
The scent of the Mayflower tells of spring. 

We know the harvest fields, and the moon 
Which tells of a winter coming soon. 
We know the ice fringed marsh and shore — 
These things we know, and far, far more. 


We know the children our Alother has reared — 
World-wide respected, and honored and feared. 
Where'er has been danger, or work to be done. 
There has been, and shall be, a New England son. 

Saints, soldiers and statesmen, where'er there is need, 
Some child of New England stands ready to lead, 
For the right ; for the faith, for the weak against 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 
Wholesome and keen as an ocean breeze. 

And so from North and South and West 
Home we come at last to rest. 
To the land we love beyond all other 
To our New 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 Maltby 
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 Mrs. 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 posterity, 
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 throwing 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 Maltby 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. M. 
for Elizabeth (Fowler) Alaltby. 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 Mrs. Theodore Clark we are indebted for a copy of a love 
letter written a few days prior to his marriage to his betrothed, 
Submit Taintor, by Rev. Jonathon Maltby. While calling on Mrs.

Stevens in Fair Haven, Conn., the compiler had the pleasure of 
seeing the charmingly simple but elegant wedding dress of this old- 
time bride. Made 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 Maltby Genealogy and tied with bits 
of silk like this wedding gown, was given me by Mrs. Stevens and 
is a highly valued treasure. 


The following is a copy of the letter : 

New Haven, June 5th, 1787. 
Aly dearest friend : — 

I depend upon being at Northford 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 Virtue — to be, not my own, but another's : to give 
my hand and my 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 ! which harmonizes Two in One ! ! 

'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 ; emblematical of 
their purity is the pure white of this half sheet, which excites the 
following allusion : 

Thou art the dear Maiden innocently sweet. 
Who 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 vours. 

Jonathon [Nlaltby. 

In booklet number one, issued by the Alaltby 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. 

Maltby 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-Uved all my contem- 
poraries, relatives and friends. Joseph Darling, Esqr., of the class 
of 1777 and classmate, Hon. Eliziir Goodrich, D.D.L., are now liv- 
ing in this city. ( NoTi: i ) . I am oldest of the three. The former 
Treasurer of dear Yale, the venerable Deacon Beers, is several 
years my senior. 

]\Iore 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, 
I remain a monument of mercy. "A Wonder to Many ! A Won- 
der To ^lyself !" 

In my 90th year, 63rd year 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. M. 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 the days that 
"tried men's souls," in time of the Revolution. 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 

The upper classes, in the interval of studies, are on the lower 
green ( Xote; III.) 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, swung his hat and cried aloud, "God save 
the Continental Congress! Three Cheers!" Oh, they were given 
to the life ! 

The war occupied too much of the student mind and such was 
the exposed state of college, while at N. Haven, that it was 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 office and took charge of the seminary. Tulv, 


1779, Tryan and Traitor Arnold with three or four thousand 
British troops enter N. 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. Nesbitt 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 wdiistling 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 happy 
alumni. (Here follows a short genealogical sketch.)

Rev. Jonathon (4) Maltby was a son of Benjamin (3), grand- 
son of Daniel (2) and great-grandson of William (i). 


General Isaac Maltby was born Nov. 10, 1767 at North- 
lord, Conn. He was graduated at Yale College in 1786. 
He was a son of Benjamin and Elizabeth Fowler ]\raltby, 
his wife, and a grandson of Daniel (2). He was a student 
of divinity with Dr. Smalley of New Britain. Conn., and 
was admitted to the church there July 12, 1789. and licensed to 
preach the same year by New Haven, East. Tie married. Nov. 10, 
1790, at Hatfield, Mass., Lucinda Murray, the only child of Seth 
Murray, who was a Brigadier-General in the Hampshire Militia in 



the time of the Revohitionary 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. Isaac Maltby served 
throughout the War of 1812 and was a distinguished soldier and 
scholar. His commissions are in the possession of his granddaugh- 
ter. Airs. Frederick E. Foster. 

General Isaac Alaltby served as representative from Hatfield 
in the ^Massachusetts Legislature in 1809-10. He was the author 

(Here Ger,. Isaac ^Nlaltbv Married and Resided) 

of three books on military science, viz. : "Elements of War," "Mili- 
tary Tactics" and "Court Martial." 

In 1803 he was 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 
when 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 Mass. Militia 


with headquarters in Boston, his son, Seth Alurray Alaltby, 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 New 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 ]\Iassachusetts 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, wdieeling, etc. It was reviewed twice at 
a place called Cedar Point, and on Boston Common by Governor 
Strong, Adjutant General Brooks, Generals Cobb, Alattoon, 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 which must have been satisfying, as a well 
earned tribute, to Gen. Isaac Maltby. 

His brother. Rev. Jonathon ]\Ialtby, 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 b_v Gen. Isaac Maltby, a document among many Maltby papers 
which have become the property of a dealer in antiques. 

A letter from Rev. Jonathon Maltby to his brother. General 
Isaac Maltby, of Hatfield, Mass., dated "X^ew 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, 1796, I an- 
nounced to you the afifecting 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 
ways of erring man . . . it is not the hoary headed mother, l)ut 
her youngest child, our dear Brother Stephen ! 


"On Alonday 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. 

X. B. — This was Col. Stephen Maltby, great, great-grandfather of the 
compiler, who, by the kindness of Mrs. Higby, owns this ancient letter. 

General Isaac (4) descended from Benjamin (3), Daniel (2), 
William ( i ) . 

The letter which follows was contributed by Airs. F. E. Foster 
and is well worthy of insertion in these pages. 
Copy of letter from the 

Honl. George Thatcher, of Supreme Court, 

J. Hill, Esq. 

Biddeford, nth Feb'y 1810. 
My Dear Sir, 

I have just read Genl Maltby 's Report Published in the Pal- 
ladium on our Foreign Relations & the Conduct of our National 
Administration 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 & sound policy, & it would 
be more criminal 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 you reject those 
Resolutions, you must not return to Biddeford. 

Who is this Genl Maltby? His Report argues good. If I 
am not mistaken he made a very energetic Report & Speech on 
some great national question last Winter.* I like him. If you 
have any acquaintance with him make my respects to him & tell 
him he is right in his notions. Encourage his heart & strengthen 
his hands to fight the Lord's battles. We have no news here. Every- 
body that possesses common sense here gives over all expectations 
of finding Robert Smith's insult. They say it is all a matter of 
juggling to impose a little while on the credulity of Republicans, 
but the spell is wearing ofif. Keep up a good tone in your pro- 
ceedings. There is nothing gained by giving way to the Devil. 
Yield an inch and he will take an ell. 

George Thatcher. 

To Jonathan Hill. Esq. 

* Refers to the proceedings against Smith. 


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 ]\Ialtby was Maria Maltby, 
who married Thomas Cutting Love of New York. Their oldest 
daughter, ^Madame Gary (Julia Love) has recently died at her home 
in Buffalo, New York. Aladame 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, 1915: "In the passing of Alme. 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, wdiose 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 sw^ay. even though Buffalo society is 
made of many circles. No charity ball, the climax of each season's 
gaiety, has seemed complete without the presence of Mme. 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 
lovely picture she made in her sweet dignity, 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. 

Every afternoon at 3 o'clock Mme. Gary was wont to take her 
daily drive, and, in the parks, her passing was ahvays marked with 
mterest by those who knew her, and by those wdio saw onlv a 
lovely old lady, just stepped from a bower of lavender and flcnvers 
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 
has 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 many 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 Gary was eighty-eight years of age. 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 Mme. Gary's only daughter, who 
is Mrs. Lawrence Dana Rumsey. Her son, Gharles Gary Rumsey, 
had many beautiful pieces of sculpture at the San Francisco expo- 
sition, and his Pizzaro was one of the four great pieces at the 

Mrs. Rumsey's youngest son, Lawrence, deserves special men- 
tion in these pages. He comes from a long line of "fighting an- 
cestors." Since 1630 his ancestors on the Maltby and White side 
of the house have been fighters. French-Indian wars. Revolutionary 
War, the War of 1812 and our own Givil War have found his 
forebears ready to fight, and if need be, die for their country. We 
have not forgotten that in the black days of our own struggle for 
Liberty, France came to our aid — ^certainly Mr. 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 Ypres he took his turn relieving the 
exhausted chaufifeurs. Six days was all a strong man could endure 
at a time. (While at Ypres he walked over to "The Cloth House 
Tower" and picked a yellow rose which he sent his mother.) Later 
]Mr. Rumsey joined The Foreign Legion to become an aviator. 
His quickness of action acquired from polo, hockey and football 
have doubtless been a great help in preparing 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 think 
of their machines ! Mr. 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. 

Mr. Rumsey was practicing his "test for a triangle" at an 
p.Ititude 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 
for 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 ; but on the mountain 

He is "somewhere at the front" pilotting "map-takers" or 
'"bomb-throwers." The papers tell us frecjuently that "a squadron 
of French planes hovered over the battle fields," and that is all 
the news one gets, for the mails lately have brought no news to 
the anxious hearts at home. To this brave and gallant officer our 
hearts must go out in sympathy 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, 
v;ho like Mr. 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. Now 
after twenty-two years of service he is a major in the 12th Infantry, 
U. G., N. Y., and aide de camp on the staff of Gov. Whitman. 
He also served in a similar capacity with Gov. Hughes, 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 Alaltby 


Died at Bufifalo. X. Y.. on June 9th, 1844, aged 73 rears, relict 
of Gen. Isaac Maltby, who, in 1818, emigrated from Hatfield, Mass., 
to Waterloo, X. Y., where he died in the following year. 

It may be wondered at that a life so quiet and unobstrusive as 
]\Irs. Maltby's should find more than the common brief record of 
its close, and, especially, that it should call public attention in a 
part of the countr}- where she was never much known and from 
which she had been absent so many years. She had no ambition 
for posthumous renown. By 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 duty 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. Maltby was the daughter and, we believe, the only child 
of Col. Seth Murray, of Hatfield, and was bred in the most intelli- 
gent, refined and virtuous society with which her native town and 
its vicinity were favored. But 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 afiluence of fortune set off 
with the skill of politeness and the costly array of fashion. Not 
negligent of the proprieties of outward appearance 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 
(Mily 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 forgive 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 
was 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 charity, 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 neighbor, as a disciple and a professed 
follower of Christ, she was a pattern whom all in these relations 
might profitably imitate. 

Of her own goodness she was neither boastful nor seemed con- 
scious, and well could her lips afford to be silent when her life was 
so constant a repetition of praise. But with all of her excellent 
qualities, she was humble for defects not discerned by others, and 
prayerful for forgiveness of sins and for grace that in nothing she 
might ofifend. If 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 the cares, the sorrows, and all the infirmities of this 
sinful and troublous world. They shall never again approach thee, 
for thou hast ascended to heaven and put on immortality ! Thy 
bright example is yet with us. Happy shall they 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. But, 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.

(Airs. Harlow Swain Love) 

For this sketch of Airs. Harlow Swain Love we are indebted 
to her daughter, Mrs. Frederick E. Foster. Airs. Love was a daugh- 
ter of General Isaac Alaltby (See Biography.) 

Alartha Church Maltby was the youngest of the ten children 
of Gen. Isaac Alaltby and Lucinda Murray, his wife, who was the 
daughter of Gen. Seth Murray, an ofificer during the entire war of 
llie 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 Burgoyne. She was born in Hatfield, Alass. : 
later her parents removed to Waterloo, N. Y., when she was but 
two years of age, and upon her marriage to Air. Harlow S. Love, 
tlieir home was established in Buft'alo, X. Y., 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, wdiere Air. 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 subse(|uently the city and county attorney of San 

Airs. 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 
tliat 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 afifectionate 
gratitude. Her literary attainments were of a high order; and for 
manv vears she contributed to the public prints articles on various 


subjects, which were widel}' 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. 

Mrs. Love crossed the Pacific Ocean numerous times, visiting 
Hong Kong, China, on the occasion of the marriage of her daughter. 
I,eila, to William 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 Yokohama, 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. Mrs. 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 Vernon, N. Y.* 

Note. — 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. 

Major Seth Murray Maltby, son of General Isaac, was the 
father of Mr. George Beecher Maltby, Mr. John Whitehouse -\Ialtby 
and Mrs. Albert T. Higby (Mary Maltby). whose pictures will be 
found on the opposite page. George Beecher and John Whitehouse 
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 Beecher 
Maltby, Mary Maltby Higby. and Mr. John Whitehouse Maltby. 
Standing are Mrs. George Beecher Maltby. who kindly furnished 
the photograph and Mr. Albert T. Higby. This photograph was 
taken in the summer of 1910. and we regret to record that shortly 
after Mr. John Whitehouse Maltby's death occurred. 

It will be sad news to many of the Maltbys to learn that shortly 
after photograph of "the Maltby Twins" was taken, Mr. John White- 
house Maltby began to fail rapidly in health. On June 17th, 1911, 
he passed away at the home of his twin brother, Air. George Beecher 
Maltby, in Aurora, Indiana, a hardeniiT^: of the arteries beino- the 
cause of his death. 

* Mrs. Love took great interest in her Maltby ancestors and was in- 
defatigable in her efforts to obtain family records and old documents. This 
work is always a labor of love and in her time was doubtless unappreciated 
and undervalued, but oosterity can not fail to be g-rateful for the careful 
work done by her, and must honor her for her persistency in carrying on 
labors which met with little encouragement or response. 



Air. Maltby, accompanied by his son, made the sad journey 
east to the old home in Rochester, New York, 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 down in health from 
which the bereaved husband never recovered. 

Mr. George Beecher Alaltby died April 22, 191 5. 


The following sketch was written by IMiss Lynes : 

My great-grandfather, Jonathon Maltbie, 3d, was the only child 
of Jonathon, Jr., and Abigail Holmes Maltbie; 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 No. 4." This house was built in 1766 by 
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. Henry Rowland, a 
grandson, in writing some reminiscences, states that "grandfather 
Maltbie'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 returning to his house 
found all their valuable china scooped off the shelves on to the floor 
and broken into pieces and everything upside down. In the kitchen 
in 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 sold 
it to Justin Hobart. The house is still standing today in good con- 
dition. Jonathon Maltbie was ist Lieutenant of the "Trumbull," 
one of the first cruisers built for the Continental navy : Dudley Sal- 
tonstall. Commander. She went into service about April, 1780, car- 
rying 28 guns and her crew numbered 200. Her first engagement 
under Captain Nicholson, occurred June 2nd of the same year, with 
the "Watt." (Query: Wasp?') an English letter-of-marque, under 
Captain Colehart. She carried 34 guns and 250 men. The "\\^att" 
was a private vessel with a car^^o of great value and was especially 
equipped to fight her way. This was the first action of any moment 
that occurred in 1780 and had the reputation of beinq- 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. 
Off 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 Nicholson found himself 
obliged to go to quarters or to strike without resistance. He pre- 


ferred to do the first, but the EngHsh 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 
Alonk," i8 guns, coming 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 Maltby was afterwards appointed Master of the 
"Argus," a cutter in the service of the United States for the pro- 
tection of the revenue. He died Feb. 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. 1 2th, 1776. Date of commission as Captain by George Wash- 
ington, March 2ist, 1791. 

Through the kindness of Mr. Frank Pentecost of Lawrence- 
ville, Georgia, we have received a copy of the commission of Jona- 
thon (4) Maltbie, signed by George Washington. Mr. Pentecost 
tried to obtain a photograph of the document for us, but the photo- 
graphers said it would be impossible as the type has become too in- 

Mr. Pentecost is a great-grandson of Captain Jonathon (4) 
Maltbie, descending from William (5) Maltbie who went south, and 
from William's daughter. Mary (6) Maltbie. The Commission: 
George Washington, President of the United States of America. 
To all who shall see these Presents Greeting- 
Know ye. That reposing special Trust and confidence in the 
Integrity Diligence and good Conduct of Jonathon Maltbie of Con- 
necticut I do appoint him Master of a Cutter in the service of the 
United States, for the protection of the Revenue and do authorize 
and empower him to execute and fulfil the Duties of that Office 
according to law and to have and to hold said office, with all the 
rights and Emoluments thereunto legally ap])ertaining unto him the 
said Jonathon Maltbie during the pleasure of the President of the 
United States for the Time being. 


In testimony whereof I have caused these Letters to be made 
Patent and the Seal of the United States to be hereunto afifixed.

ninety-one and of the Independence of the United States of America

Thos. Jefferson. 

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 ]\Iilitary 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 INIaltby, ist Lieutenant. Capt. J. Nicholson of 
Pa., afterwards. Capt. Saltonstall being transferred to the "Warren."' 
"Trumbull" captured ofif the Delaware Cape by the British ships 
"Iris" and "General Monk," after a gallant resistance of more than 
one hour, during which she was completely dismantled and lost 
five killed and eleven wounded ( Ref. Navy of the Ignited States, by 
Lieutenant Emmons, p. 3). 

1791. 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 "New London, Jan. 23, 1776," to Silas Deane, 
Delegate to the ist and 2nd Congress at Philadelphia. It mentions 
"Second Lieut. Alaltbie's crew," Vol. II., p. 353. 

^Ir. 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 "having red hair and a 
quick temper." It would be interesting to know how INIrs. Cross 
obtained this information, whether from written documents or if 
perchance from a portrait which has been lost to the family. 



Zacheus (5) Alaltbie, whose photograph we show on this 
page, was born August 19th, 1774. and baptized September 18, 
1774. at Norfolk Connecticut. 

He was the fifth child of Daniel (4) and Margaret Munson 
Maltbie. [Daniel (3), Daniel (2), William (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 they were married at New Marlborough, Massachusetts, as 
Burchard seems to be the name of a resident family in this town. 





Miss Lucy Ann Morton writes that Reunah Burchard was the 
daughter of David and Mercy Burchard and that she had two 
brothers, Ezra and Amos Burchard. David Burchard's name ap- 
pears in the New Marlborough list, census of 1790 — "7 in family. ' 

March i, 1808, Amos Burchard of New Marlborough, hatter, 
purchased land of Zacheus Maltby situated in Lee. Shortly after 
the marriage of Zacheus Maltbie to Reunah Burchard we find them 
at Lee, Mass.. where their first child, Ezra Burchard, was born, 
April I, 1798. Their second child, Mercy Burcliard, was born Feb. 
8, 1800, at Lee, Mass. 


On March i, 1802, Zacheus Maltbie 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 May, 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. 

Miss Lucv Ann ]Morton. whose mother was the ]\Iercy Maltby 
born at Lee in 1800. remembers her grandfather and grandmother 



and says "they came overland from Lee, Mass., to Groton City, 
X. Y., and had to clear the land to build as it was all wooded 
land at that time. Mother (Mercy ^laltby) was seven years old 
when 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, N. Y., 
and built himself a house that was quite complete for those days. 
Miss McGeer 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 on the walls." (All are painted not papered, 
you understand. ) "Last summer the great big fireplace was boarded 
up, but I remember the old-fashioned brick oven, and what was 
called a 'recess' built off the living room. My mother, Margaret 
Ann Maltby was born here." 

Miss McGeer's father also remembers Zacheus Maltby 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 Maltby was 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 Maltbie wrote: "Father. Ezra B., served in 
the war of 1812 for grandfather Zacheus — father being only four- 
teen or fifteen when he enlisted." 

James M. Maltbie wrote: "Grandfather was known and called 
by nearly everybody 'Uncle Zack.' I have forgotten his father's 
name. I have heard him say that his parents lived in or near Lee, 
Mass. He moved into this state when m}^ father was very young, 
locating in the town of Groton, Tompkins Co., but finally removing 
tc Summer Hill, Cayuga Co., where he died. He was a hatter by 
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 singer 
genial and a good story-teller, so the youn-? people all delighted to 
get Uncle Zack to telling stories. He had six children, Ezra, Alercy, 
Daniel, Lester, Alanson and r\Iargaret. 

"My father, Daniel, married Desire Howland and her sister, 
Mary 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. 

XoTi-.— Allen, Seth, Bridscy and James :\raltbie 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,

to Lake Co., Illinois. On the 22nd of May, 1859, was married 
to Mary R. Gilbert. At the outbreak of the Civil War IMr. Maltby 
enlisted as a private in Co. F, 37th Illinois Infantry. He was 
engaged with his regiment in many of the important campaigns 
of the western army and was honorably discharged Sept. 22. 1864. 
After the war he moved to Allamakee Co., Iowa, and later to 
Winneshiek Co., where he lived till his death. 

He was for many years one of the prosperous agriculturists 
of the county until his retiring from active life, since which time he 
made his home with his children. 

For many years he took an active part in the politics of the 
county, ably serving the people for several years as assessor and 
as a member of the Board of Supervisors. He was also a valued 
member of the G. A. R., keeping in close touch with his comrades, 
who will feel the loss of their comrade. 

He died Aug. 11, 1915, at the home of his daughter, Airs. 
Fannie Whitnev. 


This interesting silhouette was very kindly sent us by Mrs. 
J. A. Thompson of Owosso, Michigan, a granddaughter of Jacob 
(5) Maltby and his wife, Sally Keyes. Jacob Maltby was born in 
1776, and married Sally Keyes January 3, 1803. He went from 
Norfolk, Connecticut, and settled on the Western reserve near 
Unionville, Ohio, called "New Connecticut." 

Mrs. Tyler, a granddaughter, has furnished us with some in- 
formation concerning Sally Maltby. She writes: "Grandmother 
was lame, a spare built, very prim person. She was a very fine 
needle woman and taught me to sew and knit. She was born in 
Litchfield, Connecticut. My grandparents came to Ohio some- 
tMue in 1820 or 1821. My 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, playing with us. enter- 
ing into all our sports like a little one with us. My mother was 
bis idol and favorite daughter-in-law. My father's family were 
very proud and men of splendid habits. The old stock of Maltbys. 
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 
genealogv — little things which bring back more closely to us those 
who have gone. 



Such items are difficult to obtain. Few of us could write 
much about our grandparents 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.

"]\Ir. Norman Maltby, whose portrait we publish, was born 
on his father's farm near A'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- 
plied : '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 ever}' kind 
of disease, burst into tears and said. 'What will become of mc, I 
certainly will die before you do.' To which Mr. Maltby answered : 
'What does an old ignoramus of a sailor know about whether [ 
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, 'Tf 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'erona and entered into 
partnership in tlie general merchandise business with William S. 
Armitage, under the firm name of Maltby and Armitage. In 1861 
he removed to Cleveland, N. Y., and from there in 1863 to Rome, 
N. Y., where he, in connection with Samuel Ward well organized 
the firm of Wardwell and Company, dealers in hardware, at 54 Dom- 
inick Street. In 186c; he went to ^Tissouri in farming and sheep

raising in Henry county. In 1868 he removed to Sedalia, Mo., and 
engaged in mercantile business, in which he continued until his 
death in 1876. While he was never a politician he was elected in 
1875 Mayor 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 Methodist Church, 
but left it in 1863 as he 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. 

Mr. Norman Maltby married Sept. 16, 1841, Lovina Maria 
Wright, daughter of William and Susanna (Sessions) Wright. Mrs. 
Alaltby descended from a great many prominent families, some of 
them being: John Wales of Idle, Eng. ; John Greenaway, Dor- 
chester, Mass. ; Thomas Stevens, London, England ; Major Simon 
Willard; Thomas Brigham. b. 1603; Ralph Wheelock; William 
Ward; John Pope; William Blake, b. 1594; Thomas Axtell ; John

("Evening Independent," Ashtabula, Ohio, August 24, 19 10.) 

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 ]\Irs. 
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 Maltby characteristics of strong home love, 
honesty and firm religious principle. 

The is the second golden wedding in the House of Maltby. 
In 1868 under the same hospitable roof tree that sheltered yester- 
day's event, Mr. Maltby'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 Maltby 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. P.eckett, Airs. Clark 
Throope and Dr. ]\I. C. Scott, pastor of the M. E. church. Rev. 
W. E. Rix of Wisconsin, pronounced the benediction. 

In the evening fifty of the Saybrook friends and neighbors 
surprised Mr. and Mrs. Maltby 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 gold pieces. Rev. 
Collins making the presentation speech. Mr. Alaltby in a voice 
broken with emotion, responded. 

\ 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 Air. and 
Mrs. T. J. Osborne of Berea, Ky. ; Mr. and Mrs. H. A. P.eckett 
and Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Hinman of Lakewood, Ohio, and Miss Ruth 
Alaltby. Other out-of-town guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Clark 
Throope of .Ashtabula, Rev. and Mrs. W. E. Rix of Lake Xebaga- 
mon. Wis., Mrs. Mary P>eckett of Lakewood.

Dear Kindred and Friends : — 

I received, by kindness of Mrs. C. S. Verrill, the first two 
numbers of the Pvlahby Booklet and found them very interesting 

My life has been so full of work and my field 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 ]\Irs. Verrill and my cousin, Miss Martha J. Maltby of Colum- 
bus. Ohio, to write a sketch of my life, for I have had very little 
chance to develop the little literary gift I have. Still, with the hope 
that some account of my 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 under the pines at this beautiful 
wooded mountain resort. I have written this review of a very 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. 

Sincerelv Yours in the Ijonds of Kindred, 

Esther Tappixg ^vIaltbif;. 
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 nourished 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 Ufe 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 which 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 doubts 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. Hume's History of England was read 
before the family rose in the morning:. "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 alwa\s be grateful for the fatherly 
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. 

When Esther consulted her father in reference to going to 
college, he replied, "If my daughter 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 preparatory 
department of Oberlin Colleo-e. Ohio, and commenced the hard 
struggle to obtain an education. To help defray her expenses she 


taug'ht 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 Virginia and afterwards 
taught in Wilberforce 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. M. 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, "We hoped you would be the 
strong stafif 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, "You have been my care until now ; you will be too 
far away for my help to reach you. I give you up to God. I shall 
never see your face again on earth, but you are His." Her last 
words when she bid her daughter farewell were, "At God's call go 
cheerfully." The daughter remembered how, often in childhood she 
had heard her 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, 'T 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 New York harbor with twenty missionaries 
on board. Fourteen days later the wide ocean had separated them

from the land of their fathers. A live hours" railroad ride through 
"Eden"-like 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 Constantinople the startling news came to the new 
missionary that Miss Norcross, with whom she was to be asso- 
ciated, had suddenly sickened and 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 
by their sympathy helped and encouraged the inexperienced mis- 
sionary to realize that the "Strength" of her life would not fail her. 

Mr. 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. Much 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 planet. 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 floorless 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 paneless 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 spend the night and there she met a mother with her l)right- 
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 met 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 exceedingly limited. 
The missionary teacher and the famly occupied the second floor 
and the school-room and a dormitory were on the first small out- 
buildings in the yard 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. 
The pupils were mostly from the wealthiest and most intelligent 
families of the city. Bright and eager to learn, they made rapid 
progress. It was the first gymnasium, 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 
country in civilization and intelligence, but it was not long 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 house to the missionaries and they were obhged to buy of tlie 
'J'urks next to the Bulgarian 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 Mission 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 
Macedonia and Bulgarian villages came to our school and graduall\' 
the numbers increased until a hundred and twenty 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 by 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 influence as wives of prominent 
leading men. Those educated here are found in all grades of societv 
and are leaders wherever found. Without doubt the thousand or 
more girls who have come under the influence of this school have, 
during this formative period 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 bv a progressive people, 
brings to mind experiences of intense interest. The friendships 
formed here are of no ordinary type. Miss Maltbie will always be 
thankful that she was called to be a missionary teacher of the 
Gospel of Christ in this land of promise. 

Note.— "In 1908, the cares of the head of the 'School for Girls' (for tliis 
1^^ the name by which the school has been known since its removal to 
Samokov) was resigned l)y Miss Maltbie but she has retained a position as 
teacher in the school." -Martha J. Maltbv. 


A few weeks ago the secretary receive a letter from Aliss 
Esther T. ]\laltbie and it seems to us fitting that a few extracts 
should be given to the Alaltby cousins. Aliss Maltbie 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 .Va- 
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 very 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. W^ill not some of my relatives interest 
themselves in this good work and help us to stand firml}- 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, 1910. 

To those of us who are interested in foreign missions, we would 
call attention to Miss ]\Ialtby'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. 

Miss Maltbie's work has not been unknown or unappreciated, 
as the following incidents show. Miss ]\Iartha J. ]\Ialtby 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. ']\Iiss Esther Maltbie' I know her. ^\y wife was 
one of her pupils.' Later he said. 'Aliss ]\Ialtbie is known all over 
Bulgaria.' " 

Another letter, received last winter from John Maltbv Conk- 
ling, has the following item : "Last evening I listened to Miss Ellen 
]M. Stone tell her experiences witli 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 
Miss Esther Maltbie will be interesting to the cousins, we believe, 
and consequently give the following condensed notes : 

Esther Tapping Maltbie is the daughter of Daniel ( 5 ) and 
Esther Tapping Maltbie. Daniel Maltbie went to Ohio in 18 19 with 
his father, Benjamin (4) Maltby (Rev. War). Benjamin (4'! 
Maltbie was born May 11, 1750, in Northford, Connecticut, and 
married Abigail Munger. (Her ancestry was published in our 
fourth annual report). He was the son of Daniel (3) and ]\Iary 
Harrison Maltby, the grandson of Daniel (2) and Esther Moss 

Maltby and great-grandson of William ( i ) and Maltby, the 

emigrant ancestor. 

As a large number of our members descend from Daniel (3) 
and Mary Harrison Maltby, we are printing her ancestry for their 

Mary Harrison was the daughter of Xathaniel and Thankful 
Wilkinson Harrison, granddaughter of Captain Nathaniel and 
Hannah Frisbie Harrison; great-granddaughter 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 alleo:iance 
in New 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 appears) 
was the daughter of Silas and Mary 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 
Milford, Connecticut. His wife was Emma . 

The following Colonial record will be of interest to this branch 
of the family: "1673, May i6th. The court accepts of the list of 
Troopers presented by Captain John Nash, and Captayn Thomas 
Toppino- for New Haven County and doe confirm Captayn Topping 
to be Captavne and Mr. William Maltby to be Cornet of the sayd 
Troope." (Colonial Records of Connecticut, 1665 to 1667, p. 199 
M.S.S.; Vol. II.. p. 199, Printed Records.) 

In a letter dated August i, 191 5, Miss ^lartha J. Maltby in- 
forms me that owing to ill health Miss Esther T. Maltbie returned 


to the States and is now living with her nephew, Mr. John Maltby 
ConkHn. Miss Maltby 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 biography." 


Deacon William Maltby of Northford, Conn., was the first 
child of Henry and Ruth Hart Maltby, and was born March 19, 
1825. He married Esther Hall, daughter of Dr. Pierce and Esther 
(Hall) Hall of Wallingford. 

We give a short extract from a sketch of Mr. Maltby's life, 
which appeared in a local newspaper at the time of his death : 

"In the death of Deacon William Maltby the town loses one 
of its oldest and best citizens. In his younger days 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 xMay 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 Maltby 
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. (Parks) Maltby 
and was born February i8th, 1830. in Fair Haven (now a part 
of New Haven) Connecticut. As a boy. Mr. Maltby lived at home, 
going 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 Mr. Maltby went into the dru<;- l)usiness for 
himself. In May, 1852. he married Elizabeth Broughton Maguire. 
Thev had two children, Edward Parks, and Mary Louise Maltby. 
Shortly after the above children were born, the war broke out and 
Mr. Maltby disposed of his drug business and went South where 
for sometime he supplied General Grant's army with provisions. 


Mr. Maltby established an oyster business in Norfolk, Virginia, 
and was the first to ship opened oysters in bulk to New York, for 
a long time averaging five hundred gallons a day. 

In 1864, Mr. 3,Ialtby lost his wife and for seven years was .1 
widower. In 1871, he married Ruth Atwater Bostwick, and to 
them were born Margaret Atwater, George Erastus and Lucius 
Upson Maltby. 

In 1878, Mr. Maltby and his family left A'irginia and went to 
New York to live, where the northern branch of the oyster business 
was supervised by him. Mrs. Maltby died in May, i8g8. 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, Mrs. William M. Bernard of New 
York City, at whose residence he died, in Ardsley, N. Y. The 
interment was at Trinity Cemetery. 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. ^lany of us 
never had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Alaltby personally, but it 
is a source of gratitude that we have his photograph and the fine 
character which was his cannot fail to endear his memory to us. 
one and all. Mr. Maltby's descent was Lucius (5L Rev. Jonathon 
(4), Benjamin (3), Daniel (2), William (i). 


Mr. Maltby was born at South Rutland, Xew York, July 19th, 
1836. He is a son of Rev. Sherman and ]\Iaria Thomas Maltby. 

In June, 1857, he graduted from the State Normal School at 
Albany, New York. After graduation Mr. Maltby taught for one 
year in the Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute at Brooklyn, New 
York. In September, 1859, he married ]\Iiss Fannie E. Clark and 
settled in business at Watertown, 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 expression to a long 
felt desire to enter the ministry and the following year 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, Wisconsin, in response to a 
call which had been previously extended to him. 

In 1881, he made a tour of Europe, visiting many important 
cities and places of interest. His relations with the church at Madi- 
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, New Jersey, where after 
seven years of service, a church building was completed and dedi- 
cated. His last pastorate was at Newtown. 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. 

Mr. Maltby has written a number of songs which have been 
appreciated by his friends. 

Now, 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) Maltbie, 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 i860. 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 college year when he entered the army as 
private in Co. D., 87th Regiment, Ohio Au^lunteer Infantry. He 
was appointed corporal and then sergeant in his company and the 
following vear he was commissioned captain of Co. E.. 4th Regt. 
U. S. C. t. 

At the close of the war he ccMitinued his collesfe course at 
Amherst, Mass., and graduated in 1867. Received the appoint- 


inent 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, Wis. 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 New 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 
Brayton, Gertrude, Guy Southworth and Mildred Noble. 

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 pubHc schools in 
Iowa : went to Chicago and taught as principal of suburban schools 
for thirteen years. 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 Nettie May Webster of Barrington. 
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 LTniversity, 
Des Moines. 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, Mo., where he now 


Mildred Noble, the fifth child of Seth Waldo and Rizpah Stet- 
son (Boltwood) Maltbie, was born May 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 Maltby. The family reside at Gronegen, ]Minn. 


Mr. George W. Maltby was one of the original members of 
the ]\Ialtby 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. When Mr. Maltby died on July ist, 1908, we 
lost one of our strongest supporters. 

The following obituary is taken from the "Buffalo Evening 
News" of July i, 1908: 

Business Man of Nationai. 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 W. [Nlaltby at his home at 3 130 o'clock this 
morning. Among the tributes to his memory by legions of friends, 
no encomium will ring truer than this. But it is conceded by all 
who knew him that business honesty was only an incidental char- 
acteristic and one that was regarded as a matter of course by ]\Ir. 
Maltby. That was the rough stone of his character — "Square-hewn 
and polished for a grand and sterling character. ..." 

^Tr. Maltby was born in West Henrietta, Monroe County, 
N. Y., in 1845. When not seventeen he enlisted as a private in 
Company H of the io8th New York Volunteer Infantry and served 
with Gen. Winfield Scott at Antietam. Gettysburg and Spottsylvania 
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 discharge in November, 
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, Air. Alaltby 
decided to continue his studies, and took a course in a business 
college at Rochester. In 1865 he entered the firm of Whitmore, 
Carson & Co., Rochester, dealers in cut stone. In 1880 Mr. Alaltbv 
came to Buffalo, entering partnership with Gilbert Brady of 
Rochester, under the name of Brady and jMaltby. The partnership 
was continued until the death of Mr. Brady in 1896. Mr. Maltby 
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. Maltby and Sons. 

Alemorials of Air. Alaltby's life work exist in monuments of 
cut stone all over tlie country. He furnished and dressed the stone 
for the AicKinley Monument in Niagara Square, also for the 
AIcKinley National Alemorial 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 Ontario Power Company's building at 
Niagara Falls. 

Mr. Maltby was a member of Bidwell-Wilkeson Post. G. A. R., 
the LTnion A'eteran League, and Queen City Lodge. F. & A. A[. 
He was a trustee of the Blocher Home, former president of tlie 
Builders' Exchange and a member of the Chamber of Commerce. 
He was also a member of the Plymouth M. E. Church. 

On Aug. 2'], 1865, Air. Alaltby married Aliss Alary J. Pierce, 
daughter of Caleb Pierce of Rochester. His widow, a daughter. 
Airs. D. J. Perry, and two sons, James C. and William C. Alaltby, 
survive him. 

(The above extracts are taken in part from the "Christian 


The following is taken from Herringshaw's Encyclopedia of 
Amierican Biog., p. 613: 

Alaltby, Albert E. — Educator — born Oct. 27, 1850, in Pulaski, 
N. Y. Received his education at Fayetteville Academy and at 
Cornell University. /\s a teacher in LTry School of Philadelphia 
and in 1878 he was appointed engineer on survey of boundary line 


between Guatemala and Alexico. 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. Maltby 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. Alaltby descends from John (7), Timothy (6), 
Timothy (5), Samuel (4), Samuel (3), Samuel (2), William (i). 


George (7) Ellsworth Maltby, 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. When 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 High schools, 
and his standing was always high. 

His father offered him the opportunity to enter Yale L^niversity, 
but he decided for a business career and he very shortly entered 
the employ of H. W. 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. Benedict, and Mr. 
Frank W. Pardee formed a partnership to handle coal entirely by 
wholesale and Mr. Maltby was asked to enter their office. This 
firm was very successful and soon became one of the leading 
wholesale coal establishments in New England. 

Mr. Maltby's advancement was rapid and while still twenty-one 
years of age he was taken into partnership and the firm name 
changed to Benedict, Pardee and Company. 

Flis business ability was of the best, and to those who knew 
him, knew the large things accomplished by him. and his success, 
any words of the writer would be superfluous. 


At the age of twenty Air. Alaltby married Miss Georgia Lord 
Morehouse, youngest daughter of Louis Peck and Harriett Broivn 
Morehouse, of New Haven, Connecticut. Miss Morehouse was 
just eighteen at the time of their marriage. They were 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 

Mr. and Mrs. Maltby had two children, Alaude Townshend, 
and Dorothy Lord, Maltby. 

Mr. Maltby was a strong supporter of the Calvary Baptist 
Church of New Haven and for years was chairman of the music 
committee, and during his office this church had the finest choir 
in the state. Mr. Maltby contributed liberally toward the maintain- 
ing of this choir. He was intensely fond of music and had a fine 
natural baritone voice. 

Mrs. Maltby 's voice was far above the ordinary singer's — with 
remarkable range and sweetness, and showed thorough cultivation 
and training. 

Many of the Maltbys were musical and we know that Mr. 
Alaltby's great grandfather, Col. Stephen (4) Maltby, had been 
quite prominent in a musical way. 

In appearance Air. Maltby was a typical Maltby, with dark 
brown hair, large brown eyes, set well apart and rather deep, heavy 
eyebrows, a firm mouth, with light brown moustache and a Maltby 
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 fond of keeping- 
good driving 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. 

Mr. Maltby 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 
bv the hand." 

Shortly before his death Mr. and Mrs. Maltby spent much 
time and large sums of money tracing the Maltby Genealogy. Mrs. 
Maltby did the compiling and arranging of the material, and to- 
gether they travelled to old burying grounds, court houses, churches, 


etc., gathering the invakiable data, part of which is contained in 
the Maltby-Morehouse Family printed at Mr. Maltby's expense 
and which he intended to give away. Mr. Maltby also was em- 
ploying an English genealogist to work upon the connection with 
cur English family. All this great work was cnt short by his 
sudden death. 

The best blood of New 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 William Brenton, of Rhode Island. 

Rev. John Davenport, founder of New Haven. 

Rev. John Eliot, "Apostle to the Indians." 

Rev. Joseph Eliot, Guilford. Conn. 

Hon. Major Nathan Gold. 

Hon. John Hall. 

Rev. Samuel Hall, Patriot. 

Governor Jonathan Law, of Connecticut, 

Rev. John Lowthrop, Scituate, Mass. 

Rev. Richard Mather. 

Rev. Eleazer Mather. 

Rev. Abraham Pierson. 

Elder John Strono-. 

Thomas Townshend, Esq. 

Rev. John Williams, the Redeemed Captive. 

Rev. Stephen Williams, the Redeemed Captive. 

Rev. Warham V/illiams. 

On the maternal side ^Ir. ^Maltby's ancestry was entirely Dutch 
and French Huguenot. He 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 handed in 
the day he died. 

]\ir. Maltby had. always been strou'^^- and vigorous, but while 
on a pleasure trip to Annapolis, Maryland, where he had gone 
accompanied by his family to attend some of the festivities at the 
Naval Academy, he was taken with a supposedly slight attack of 
influenza. After a couple of days in bed he was sufficiently re- 
covered to go on to Washington, D. C, where it was planned to 
spend a few days before returning to New 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 age. 

Mr. Alahby was a 32nd degree Alason, belonging to the New 
Haven Commandery, No. 2. K. T., New Haven, Conn.; to Pyramid 
Temple, A. A. A. N. AI. 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 \>rrill. 


Rev. Maltbie Davenport Babcock. D. D., was born at Syracuse, 
N. Y.. August 3d, 1858. He was the eldest son of Henry Babcock 
and Emily Maria Alaltbie. Her father was the Rev. Ebenezer 
Davenport Maltbie, son of David Maltbie and his wife Nancy 
Davenport of Stamford, Conn., who was the lineal descendant of 
Rev. John Davenport of New Haven, Conn. Emily Maria Maltbie's 
mother was Mary Ann Davis, daughter of Rev. Henry 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 influence, 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, N. Y. 
It was not only his brilliant intellect and his stirring oratorical 
powers that commanded admiration, for his ministry was ideal and 
no pastor in the land was more beloved. The man was everywhere 
regarded as a personal friend, so cordial, so frank, so 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 
prayers 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 abihty. 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 
gathered by his grief stricken widow, entitled "Thoughts for Every 
Day Living." His foreign letters, written while last abroad, to the 
men of the Brick Church in Xew York City, were also published. 

What 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 New York. His 
acquaintance was cosmopolitan, and it knew no denominational 
bond, and was met by a distinguished hospitalit\- to which his wife, 
the daughter of a prominent Poughkeepsie lawyer, added both 
beauty and charm. What Dr. Babcock was in liis home only those 
who lived with him and loved him, upon whom his devotion was 
showered can tell. At the time of his death, at Naples, Italv, May 
l8, 1901, in his forty-third year, the papers, both religious and 
secular, teemed with statements proving in every \va\- his remark- 
able power. 


One who knew Dr. Babcock intimately said : "The only relief 
in the mystery of iiis untimely death it seemed to me, was in the 
fact that his character and work were of such potency that they 
must reproduce themselves in the living. 

(President of the Alaltby Association.) 

Mr. Frank B. ^Nlaltby, the second president of the Alaltby 
Association, was graduated from the University of Illinois in 1882, 
and in 1907 was given an honorary degree. After matriculating, 
Mr. Alaltby followed the engineering profession and has been con- 
nected with railroad construction and work under the government 
on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. From 1902 to 1905, Mr. 
Maltby was in charge of all dredging operations on the ^lississippi 
River below Cairo and at this time had under his direction the 
largest dredge plant in the world. 

In 1905 Mr. Maltby went to Panama as a dredging expert in 
charge of all dredging operations and was afterwards made Divi- 
sion Engineer and then Principal Assistant Engineer under Mr. 
Jno. F. Stevens, Chief Engineer of the Isthmian Canal Commission. 

While in the service of the canal commission, 'Sir. Maltby 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 great Gatun 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 
engineers Mr. Maltby resigned and was chief engineer for the firm 
of Dodge and Day of Philadelphia. 

In 1908, Dodge and Day had the contract for the erection of 
the largest cable way plant in the world for handling material at 
Gatun. ^ Later Mr. :\Ialtby became associated with James Stewart 
& Company of New York, general contractors. At this time Mr. 
Maltby was in charge of a large contract on the Xew York State 
barge canal, as well as of work in Buffalo and Lorain, Ohio. In 
191 1, Mr. Maltby became a partner with a firm of Contractors and 
Engineers in New York Citv. Galwens and Dodge. 

" The latest work of Mr. Maltby's has been the Cape Cod Canal, 
recentlv finished. As a hydraulic engineer and an expert on all 


classes of dredging operations, Mr. Maltby has made a name for 
himself of which he well might be proud, but 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 Maltby m. ( ist or 2nd wife?). 

2. Daniel Maltby m. Esther Moss. 

3. Daniel Maltby m. Mary Harrison. 

4. Benjamin Maltby (R.W.) m. Abigail Alunger. 

5. Nathaniel Harrison Maltby m. Betsy Patchin. 

6. Warren Maltby m. Chlo Elizabeth Bierce. 

7. Frank Bierce Maltby m. Margaret Ellen McNavy. 

Mr. Maltby has two daughters: Ruth McNavy. and Marion 
Elizabeth, Maltby. Mr. Maltby married, second, on Feb. i. 1908. 
Miss Josephine Hedges of New York City. 


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 
it 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 book 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. 

It 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 Mr. Maltbie, as a result of his philanthropy. He generously 
declares that should h.e more than cover the cost of the book, any 
surplus will go to the compiler as a mark of appreciation of the 
v,^ork of years. This would be very nice, but it should be thoroughly 
understood by purchasers that neither Mr. Maltbie or Mrs. Verrill 
went into the editing or publishinsf with the faintest idea of deriving 
any personal benefit from their efi^orts. If the Maltbv descendants 
find the book of interest to such an extent that Mr. B. L. AFaltbie 




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 Cattarangns, N. 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 1915). In t888 he started in the drug business in 
a small way, for himself, and later in partnership with his brother, 
Ralph H. Maltbie, 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 Newark, N. J. 

Mr. Maltbie is the author of "Maltbie's Practical Pharmacy" 
and editor of several other publications. In 191 5 he was elected 
president of The American x\ssociation of Pharmaceutical Chemists. 

He was married in 1897 to Emma D. Bancroft in Buffalo, New 
York. They have one daughter, Harriet B. Maltbie. They reside 
in East Orange, N. J., except during the winter which time is spent 
at Altamonte Springs, Florida, where they have a winter home." 


Some years ago a correspondent wrote of Miss Margaret E. 
Maltby, "she is the only woman professor at Columbia University." 
If this is still the case is not known to the compiler, but that Miss 
Maltby is a very brilliant woman, exceedingly clever and a fascinat- 
ing conversationalist is well known to those who have been so for- 
tunate as to make her acquaintance. The followino- are a list of de- 
grees conferred upon her: Oberlin, Ohio, A.B. (1882); A.Af. 
(1891); Mass. Institute of Technology, S.B. (1891); Gottinger 
University (Germany) Ph.D. (1895). Miss Maltby has held the 
following fellowships: Foreign Scholarshin (or Fellowship) from 
Mass. Institute of Technology, two years while at Gottinoer. '93- Q5. 
The foreign felUiwship of the Association of Collegiate Ahuiini, 

Miss Maltby is a fellow of the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science and was private research assistant to 
President Kohll)rausch of the Physikalisch Technische Reich- 
saustalt, '98-'99. 

In 1899-1900 ^[iss Maltby studied at Clark Ihiiversity with 
Professor Webster; for four vears and a half she taught at Welles- 


ley College; one year at Lake Erie College and eight years at 

In 1909 Miss Alaltby 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 Mr. Frank B. 
Maltby, C.E. (see sketch) and her line of descent in the Maltby 
family is: Edmund (6), Nathaniel Harrison (5), Benjamin (4), 
Daniel (3), Daniel (2), William (i). 

(First Vice-President of the Maltby Association) 

The following sketch of Mr. William H. Maltbie is taken from 
'Who's Who in America," 1908-9: 

"William Henry Maltbie, professor of mathematics at the 
Woman's College of Baltimore, Maryland, was born at Toledo, Ohio, 
Aug. 26, 1867. He is a son of Silas Benjamin and Angle Van 
Deman Maltbie. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan LTniversity 
m 1890; A.M., 1892; fellow Johns Hopkins, 1894-5; Ph.D., same, 
1895; married, Dec. 19, 1904, Kate A. S. McCurley. Professor of

1895; associate professor, 1895; professor, 1899, Woman's College 
of Baltimore. Member of Phi Beta Kappa, Am. Math. Soc." (For 
address see Membership Roll.) His line of descent is Silas Benja- 
min (7), Harrison (6), Benjamin (5), Benjamin (4), Daniel (3), 
Daniel (2), William (i). 


The following account is taken from "Who's Who," 1908-9: 
"Maltbie, Milo Roy — Member Public Utilities Commission, 
N. Y., since June, 1907; Secretary Art Commission, N. Y., May.

bie's line of descent is: Henry Munson (7), Milo Harrison (6), 
Elon (5), Benjamin (4), Daniel (3). Daniel (2), William (i). 


Recently we have discovered a branch of the JMaltby family 
spelling their name Molby. 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 Miss Culver, and 
went to Lenox, Mass. From here he probably went up to Averment, 
as Culver was a prominent name in Vermont in Revolutionary Days. 
As yet this descent has not been proved, ^^'hat records we have 
of this family begin with one Jonathon Maltb}- who went from 
Salem, Mass., in 1800, to New York State. Now it is tradition 
that he was from Salem, and tradition is evidently wTong as the 
Town Clerk assures us the name ]\Ialtby is not on the records. 

Jonathon Alaltby had the following children : Chester INIolby, 
b. Dec. 8, 1788; Jacob Maltby; William [Nlaltby. went west when 
young, perhaps to Michigan ; Isaac Molby, 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 ]\Ialtby. brother of Chester, named his children William, 
Minor, Henry, John and Lucy. Further records of this branch 



The lists of Maltbys-Maltbies, who have served their country 
in the various wars our country has been involved in since its in- 
fancy should prove of interest to all Alaltbys. 

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 Maltbys 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 library. 

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. 


1. William (i) Maltby, Ensign of Train Band. 

2. Samuel (2) Maltby, Captain. (Whence his title is not 

3. Jonathon (2) Maltby, Alajor. 

Col. Stephen (4) Maltby. [Benjamin (3), Daniel (2). \\'illiam 
(i)] born in 1769, too late to serve in the Revolutionary \\'ar. He 
had much military spirit, but it was his misfortune to die just at 
the beginning of the War of 181 2, in which his brother. General 
Isaac, distinguished himself. 

Lieut. John Maltby (5) [Samuel (4), Samuel (3), Samuel 
(2), William (i)]. A descendant. Dr. Hubbard of Alamedia, 
Calif., writes of him as "Lieut." He was born in 1768. Query: 
Was he in the War of 181 2? 


Muster Roll of New York Provincial Troops, 1759: 
"WILLIAM MALTBY, April 19, age 28, Seabrook ( Say-

Roll of the men raised and passed muster in the County of Sufifolk, 
1759, Gilbert Potter, Capt.; Jesse Piatt, Joseph Brewster. Lieuten-

XoTE.— Tliis is an unplaced Maltby. Does the following record refer to 
the same person? 


Conn. Hist. Soc, Vol. IX., p. 193 :

J3th Co., Capt. Preston. Time of enlisting, March 26. Time of 
return, Nov. 9. French-Indian War Rolls, 1755-57. 

Note.— The General Assembly in Feb., 1757, resolved to raise 1400 men 
for the next campaign, to be formed into one Regiment of 14 companies to 
act in conjunction with the regular troops under command of Earl of 
London. In October the Assembly ordered the enlisting of three companies 
of 94 men each, officers included, out of the troops already in service, to 
remain in service throughout the winter. An alarm in August at the time 
of the capture of Fort Wm. Henry called out many of the militia. 

From French and Indian War Rolls, Vol. I. ; Conn. Hist. Soc.

"Jonathon Maltbie, Capt. Co. 2. French and Indian Wars." 
This note was, we believe, taken from a History of Stamford, Conn., 
by Rev. E. Huntington. 


Capt. BENJAMIN 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 age at the time of the Revolution, but doubtless was 
captain of a company for "home defense." The record is from 
the Northford Church records, page 127 and reads: "Apr. 2, 1778.

Baldwin to be their Deacons who accepted this office.* Test. War-

JONATHON Maltby. Wm. Olin, Secretary of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, sent the following certificate of his service : 
"Jonathon Maltby, residence not given, as serving as a private in

a chapter named for this patriot, called "The Thaddeus Alaltby Society." 
It was organized in St. Paul, Minn., ]March, 1896. by Airs. Ferederick E. 
Foster, a descendant of Gen. Isaac (4). brother of Thaddeus (4) IMaltby. 
In an address Airs. 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 
Northern 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

Thaddeus. who was also in the army, brought him home." If this state- 
ment is correct, it must have been Benjamin. Can some authority for this 
statement be produced? An item of interest concerning this branch of the 
familv was recently received from Mrs. Shipp. She writes: "I know that 
Rev. .lonathon (4) was one of the students at Yale who carried the valuable 
books and records up to West Rock when New Haven was alarmed by the 


WM. Malby, private. Capt. Charles Dibbel's Co., Col. Rosseter's 
(13th Bershire Co.) regt. Enlisted Oct. 18, 1780; service: 4 days, 
on the alarm at the Northward of Oct. 18. 1780. ( Ref . Mass. 
Soldiers and Sailors of Rev. War., Vol. X., p. 152.) Query: Is this 
William (4), Joseph (3), Daniel (2), William (i)? 

Rev., JOXATHON (4) ^laltby, Benjamin (3), Daniel (2), 
William ( i ) . He was one of a reconnoitering party on East Haven 
Heights in July, 1777, and was under fire. See under biography 
of Rev. Jonathon (4). 

JONATHOX (4) Maltby, Samuel (3), Samuel (2), William 
(i). According to Rev. Jonathon (4) Maltby he was a soldier in 
the Revolutionary War. "He and Sol'm Talmage were detached 
from the troop under Capt. Treat of Milford and were with him 
at the capture of Bygoih." 

Capt. JONATHOX (4) Maltbie. ist Lieut, of Continental 
cruiser "Trumbull." His commission as lieutenant is dated Oct. 
12, 1776, and signed by John Hancock. His commission as Captain 
is dated Alarch 21. 1791. and signed by General George Washington. 
(For copy see biography of Capt. Jonathon Maltbie.) In Dec. 
1775, Lieut. Jonathon Maltbie was on the "Alfred," Capt. Dudley 
Saltonstall, and ist Lieut. John Paul Jones. (\"ide Civil and Mili- 
tary List of Rhode Island, 1800- 1850, by Smith, p. 704.) Descended 
from Jonathon (3), Jonathon (2), William (i). 

DAMD (4) Maltbie, soldier in the Revolutionary War. "Capt. 
Jonathon Whitney's Company. David Maltbie, discharged Jan. 8, 
1777. Served i month, 21 days. 9th Regiment Militia under Gen-

battle of White Plains, Oct. 28, 1776, the Assembly ordered the 
9th. loth and i6th IMilitia Regiments to march to Westchester

service in 1780). (Xame also spelled Mawbrey and Mabries.) The 



compiler has a theory this was a descendant of Robert Maltby, 
emigrant, said to have "gone South." 

These records of Maltbys who served in the Revolutionary 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 Maltbys 
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 N. E. H. & Gen. Reg., about the year 1907. This 
list contains the names of several Maltbys. (See below.) 

According to Mass. Hist. Soc. Proceedings, 1864-1865, there 
was a Captain Maltby on the British ship "Glasgow." The record 
is not to his credit, however. It is a court martial record, dated 
"January 13, 1775, which continued two days this week on board 
the 'Somerset.' " The account is in a letter of John Andrews. Esq , 
of Boston.

The descendants of Benjamin and Elizabeth Fowler Maltl~)y 
will be interested to know that this ancestor was an officer in the 
Revolutionary War, though 60 years of age at the outbreak of 
hostilities. The Rev. Mr. Gillette said in his Branford address : 
"The people of North and South societies ( Northford and Old 
P>ranford) 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 (3) Alaltbv did not die tih late in October. 1776, it is pos- 
sible that descendants would be eligible through him to any Revo- 
lutionary War society. 

The Xorthford Church Records, p. 127, has the following: 
"Apr. 2, 1778. This church makes choice of Capt. Benjamin 
Maltbie 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 by Mrs. F. E. Foster, in 
which "Benjamin Maltby, Junr., Jonathan Alaltby, Isaac Maltby 
and Stephen Maltby, promise to pay their Honoured Mother Eliza- 
beth ]\laltby the sum of Twenty pounds lawfull Money within one 
year from the decease of our Honoured Father, Capt. Benjamin 
Maltby, in case she survive him," etc. "Dated Branford 20 day 
Febru'y, 1792." 

This Bond, with many other valuable papers, was carefully 
preserved by Alartha 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. 

WAR OF 1 81 2 

General ISAAC (4) Maltby, Benjamin (3), Daniel (2), WiF 
liam (i). Born in 1767, was too young to have been in the Revo- 
lutionary War. He served throughout the War of 1812 and was 
a distinguished soldier and scholar. His commissions are in the 
possession of his granddaughter, Mrs. Frederick E. Foster. For 
full account see under Biography of Gen. Isaac Maltby. 

NATHANIEL HARRISON (5) Maltby, Benjamin (4). 
Daniel (3). Daniel (2). William (i). "He was in the War of 

1 81 2, a soldier in a New York Regiment."

Maltby, THEODORE DWIGHT, born about 1816; married 
Mary Baylor in 1848 at New Orleans or Texas. Died at New Or- 
leans about 1870. While residing in Boise, Idaho, the compiler 
knew Captain and Mrs. Ralph Bledsoe, the Captain was an old 
gentleman and is since deceased. He knew intimately Theodore 
Dwight Maltby, a grand uncle of the compiler, and served with him 
in the Mexican War. Capt Bledsoe always spoke of him as "Major 
Maltby" and recounted many interesting war experiences, and if 
I remember rightly they were in the battle of Chapultepec. After 
the war, Major Maltby was for a time in partnership with Capt. 
Bledsoe and owned one of the first freighting outfits operating in 
that section of Idaho. Major Maltby often stopped at the Bledsoe's, 
who kept "open house," and was, according to them, remarkably 
handsome, well educated, a brilliant conversationalist and of a 
pleasins: personality.

By Seraph MaltbiE Dean 

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 
Might 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 Whipping 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 Sabbath use, with open fires. 

Where families gathered at mid-day 
To lunch and rest — but dare we think 
Our ancestors were frail as we. 
Who 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 gladly pay 
To Wiliiam Maltby, iKMiored sire 
Of our "rcat familv this day. 


From homes so widely separate. 
We cannot often here return 
To solemnize on sacred ground. 
The ancestral fires that now we burn. 

Yet may we hold fast to the faith 
Our fathers held in Church and State, 
And write their inscription on our shields— 
"Virtue increases under weight." 

And then some glad Reunion day. 
In Land that knows no pain nor sin, 
Meet, a united family, 
With sainted host of Maltby kin. 

(Written for the First Reunion of the Maltbv Family at Branford.) 


In Part I. we gave several pen pictures of Maltby, Yorkshire, 
the home of some of the English Maltbys and it seems fitting that 
a short account of the home of our emigrant ancestor should also 
have a place in this work. 

We can hardly do better than quote from an essay written by 
Miss Olive Hall Pond of Branford, as it gives a very 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) by forty men 
and their families, who came from Wethersfield. . . . 

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

"Trading necessitated the building of ships. Vessels suit- 
able to transport merchandise to all parts of the world were built 
where the swimming pool at Mill 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 Alaltby.) "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.' 
They were used by families who came from a long distance. They 
afforded the people places to rest and warm themselves during 
the noon hour, for the church services there lasted nearly all 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 New Haven through the town of Branford to Guilford. 
Montowese street, named from the Indians, ran as now from the 
center to the river. Here it turned, following the present course 
of the railroad, thence back to the green. A street upon which the 
minister and several officials of the town lived, led from Montowese 
street, east to the river, somewhat similar to Averill avenue. This 
was called 'Pig Lane.' 

"The first postofiice, 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 Northford, 
regularly attended with his wife and 26 children. 

* The first wife of William Maltby was probably buried near this 
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 
Maltbys will be found in the following article which is copied 
from a A/[s. 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 Mass. Hist. Coll., 
Vol. 6, p. 319) from the semi-centennial discourse (Morehouse 
and Taylor, Pub.) 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 New Haven in the year 1644, by colonists 
or immigrants from Wethersfield with William Swain at their 
head. The settlers in New 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 New 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 Wm. Swain and others of Wethersfield. Totoket, 
the original name, seems to have been given by the Aborigines, 
to 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, Middle- 
sex, their friends distinguished themselves on the side of Parlia- 
ment there in 1642.") 

'Probably 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 Westminster Con- 


fession of Faith. In church pohcy they were CongregationaHsts. 
In common with other colonists of that 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 ora;anized here, 
but as early as October, 1644. the salary of Air. 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 Mr. Sherman.) 

The first • regular pastor was Abraham Pierson, whose name 
appears on the town records in 1647. He was born in Yorkshire, 
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 he removed to 
Branford, and was pastor of the church here about twenty years. 
The union of New Haven Colony with that of Connecticut so dis- 
pleased Mr. Pierson, that he, with many of his people, left Branford 
about June, 1667, and settled in Newark, N. J., where he died 
Aug. 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 Maltby (4) have the above Rev. Abraham Pierson 
for an ancestor, through his daughter Abigail, who married John 

"The first church edifice was erected within the old burying 
ground, and tradition says it w^as 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 New Haven. The harbor 
here was better and safer. The Dutch, sagacious and enter]^rising. 
had discovered this long before Daniel" (Compiler's query, Wil- 
liam?) "Swain, of Wethersfield, and his company bought Ttitoket. 
They had also established a trading house here, and opened a lucra- 
tive traffic 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 New 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 New 
Haven for the township, and the town passed laws protecting them 
in all their rights, and prohibiting individuals from purchasing their 
reservations, lest fraud should be practised."

In February, 1906, a few Maltby descendants formed a Maltby 
Association, and as it was not intended to confine it to any par- 
ticular country, but to truly make it a Maltby Association of 
Maltbys 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 
their power to interest other Maltbys and be as prompt as possible 
in the payment 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 
]\Ialtby 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 Alaltby 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 Air. 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 York in July, 1910, and read all the 
^vills 'round Retford for about fifteen years— no matter what the 
testator's name, in the hope of getting a mention of Maltby, but 
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 Alaltby's baptism— "16 Alarch 1644-45." Mr. 
Fothergill wrote: "This corresponds with the age on his tomb. 
I 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 Vicar had gone away and had the keys with 
him. I suspect John" (i. e., brother of William 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 Maltbv 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 No. II— also such a descent would give iis 
a right to use a coat-of-arms. and certainly there is a just satis- 
faction in knowing that one is entitled to coat-armour, long since 
justly won bv some ancestor. 

'We need monev to carry on this work, iio ($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 subscribing to this fund it would be greatly appreciated. 


The Association has another object to accompHsh, namely 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 1915 should find a second reunion planned, 
but owing to an unfortunate chain of circumstances it was not 
deemed practicable this year. 

The Maltby Association have expected to publish annually 
the 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 Maltby of Forman, North Dakota. In February, 
1909, Mr. Jay H. Maltby. at his own expense, issued Booklet II, 
a volume of 150 pages very nicely got up, the sale of which we 
understand just covered the actual cost of the illustrations and 
printing. In February, 1910, 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 AIS. ready the last of February. 
The book was to have been printed at private expense by a Maltby 
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 built 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 :\Tr. Birdsey L. Maltbie to 
make his fine ofifer to print our book at his own expense, trusting 
to the Maltby descendants' interest in such a jM-oduction to sub- 
scribe sufficiently to cover the verv high costs of producing such 
a book. We earnestly request all those owning cojiies 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 literary 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 Maltby 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 Maltbw Again we urge all those who have not 
already 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 
^^ ith us for many years, giving us courage to work on, by their 
help and co-operation. 

It may interest the Maltby descendants of \Mlliam Maltby 
to know that the head of our house of ]\Ialtby is ]\Ir. Charles 
Eli Maltby. 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). Milo (6K Chauncy (7), Charles Eli (8), and his 
oldest son is Chauncy H. (9) Maltbv, b. July 29, 1886. 

The last report of the Treasurer, Feb. i, 191 1, follows. On 
this (late we had but $33.28 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 
mone\- 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 sadly 
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 Mr. 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 ninet}--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 year costs the Association at least ten or twenty 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 
ofif 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 very small surplus in 
the Treasury. 

It has not previously been stated that all the officers 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 Maltby Family Reunion was held at Branford and 
Indian Neck. 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 New Haven Public Library 
wearing a knot of red and gold, the Maltby colors, as a badge 
of identification. These were improved upon by buttons which 
were soon passed to all, having the Maltby coat-of-arms done in 
heraldic colors — the generous gift of ^Ir. Wilburt S. Maltby of 
Plainfield, New 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 Montowese House at 
Indian Neck, where our ancestor owned much land, and held an 
informal meeting opened by Rev. Clark O. Maltby, 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 Mrs. Brown of Toledo, Ohio, Mrs. 
Hubbell, and Miss 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 William 
Maltby, 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 William Maltby, speaking a few 
words of dedication. From the cemetery the little company visited 
the Town Hall, examining 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 Maltby blood. 
One of the tangible results of the Reunion was the addition of 
thirteen new members to our roll.

XoTE. — From the above list it will be seen that our members are scat- 
tered from ]\Iaine 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, New Jersey, Xew York, Xew Mexico, Xorth Dakota. Oklahoma. Ohio, 
Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota. Washington and Wisconsin. In 
Canada four provinces are represented. British Columbia, X"ew 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
