Maltby Family of New Brunswick

Part I

 

 

(V.) Thomas1 Baker Maltby, only son of Capt. ThomasA Maltby, JohnB Jr., JohnC, WilliamD; born on 17 June 1792 in Scarborough, Yorkshire, England, married Margaret (Kirton) Stainsby, widow of William Stainsby, of Sunderland, Durham Co., England, on 11 May 1816 in Monkwearmouth Church, Durham Co., England, by Rev. T. Cemicott.[1] She was born in 1790,[2] and she had married to William Stainsby on 16 Feb. 1813 in Sunderland, England.[3] Her parents have not yet been discovered, but a Margaret Kirton, daughter of Ralph and Maudlin/Magdelene (Thompson) Kirton was baptized on 19 Sept. 1788 in Sunderland, Durham Co., England,[4] who may have been the wife of Thomas Baker Maltby. Ralph Kirton married Magdelene Thompson on 23 Dec. 1786 in Sunderland.[5]

            Thomas Baker Maltby was taught navigation by his father, and he sailed from Sunderland Roads for Quebec, Canada, with his wife and their small daughter, just one month old, in his own ship, on 2 May 1817.[6] They landed in Newcastle, Northumberland Co., New Brunswick, in July 1817, where they settled, and he carried on an occupation as a “joiner,” with a sideline in the undertaking business, assisted by his sons.[7] In the 1851 Canadian Census they were living in Newcastle, NB, and Hiram and Mary Anne Fish were living with them:[8]

            The great Miramichi Fire, of 1825, destroyed most of the region, but apparently the home of Thomas Baker Maltby was spared. Doreen M. Arbuckle, in The North West Miramichi, wrote that only 6 houses were left standing in the town of Newcastle, and since both the jail and courthouse were destroyed, the courts were held at the home of Thomas B. Maltby until a new courthouse could be built.[9]

            On 14 Apr. 1831 Thomas B. Maltby purchased land in Newcastle from Henry and Mary McCullam designated as Town Lot Number 9.[10] The Northumberland County Justices of the Peace sold another parcel of land in Newcastle to Thomas B. Maltby on 30 May 1839 that had been public land,[11] which he sold to his son Thomas Maltby Jr., on 20 July 1840.[12]

            Thomas Baker Maltby died on 2 Feb. 1857 in Newcastle, NB, aged 64 years,[13] and was buried on 5 Feb. 1857 in the cemetery of St. Paul’s Anglican Church[14] on Water Street in Chatham Head, across the river from Newcastle, near the banks of the Miramichi River. Margaret Maltby was a widow, living in Newcastle, in the 1861 Canadian Census,[15] and she died there also on 6 June 1868, aged 78 years,[16] and was buried in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham Head on 11 June 1868.[17]

            The will of Thomas B. Maltby, of Newcastle, dated 20 Jan. 1757, and probated on 6 Feb. 1757, mentioned his wife Margaret Maltby, grandson Benjamin Maltby, and son John Maltby, and he named his wife as executrix of his estate.[18] (See Appendix [A] for a full transcription of his will.) The will of Margaret Maltby, widow of Thomas B. Maltby, dated 5 Aug. 1864, and probated on 18 June 1868, left her entire estate to her daughter Mary Ann Fish, whom she appointed as executrix of her estate.[19] (See Appendix [B] for a full transcription of her will.)

            The biographical sketch of Thomas Baker Maltby in Willis Hamilton’s Dictionary of Miramichi Biography says, “The family settled at Newcastle, where he was one of the first carpenters. He was active in this trade for forty years and played a large part in the rebuilding of the town after the Miramichi Fire. He was a cabinet make also, and a builder of caskets. He was in serious financial trouble in 1835 but continued his business.”[20]

            Grandfather Maltby,” as he was called by John Albert Fish, “was a kindly gentleman, smoked his pipe and went on with his work in his own happy way, working hard. He brought up quite a large family, and was a man highly respected among his fellow townsmen. He was a charter member of the Sons of Temperance in Newcastle, and by religion an Episcopalian. He had a very sweet musical voice, and sang in the church choir. His funeral was one of the largest held for a long time, and on a very cold winter's day.[21]

            Thomas Baker Maltby and Margaret Kirton had children:[22]

            A. Mary2 Anne Maltby, born on 25 Mar. 1817 in Sunderland, England, baptized at Bishopwearmouth Church, Sunderland, was brought to New Brunswick in her infancy, and married Hiram Fish, son of William and Sophia Fish, of Newcastle, NB, on 27 Oct. 1835 in Newcastle.[23] He was born ca. 1815 in the U.S.,[24] baptized with a brother and sister in St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Chatham Head, NB, by Rev. Sam Bacon on 12 Mar. 1825,[25] and was a tanner and currier in the 1851 Canadian Census in Newcastle, NB, living with her parents.[26] In 1839 Hiram joined Oliver Willard in “Willard & Fish,” tanners and curriers, but the business was dissolved in 1944 when Hiram Fish went into business for himself.[27] He died by 1861, and she was a widow living in Newcastle in the 1861,[28] and 1871 Canadian Censuses, where she ran a boarding house.[29] In the 1881 Canadian Census her daughter and son-in-law, James V. and Mary Ann Benson, were living with her in Newcastle.[30] She died on 13 Feb. 1890 in Newcastle, aged 72 years,[31] and was buried from St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Newcastle, on 16 Feb. 1890.[32] They had nine children:[33]

1. William James Fish, born on 23 Jan. 1837 in Newcastle, baptized on 1 June 1837 at St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[34] died unmarried on 29 Aug. 1861,[35] presumably in NB, probably before the 1861 Canadian Census was taken. He was not listed in his mother's household in the 1861 census.

2. Margaret Fish, born on 17 June 1838 in Newcastle, baptized on 6 Aug. 1838 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[36] was still unmarried and living with her mother in the 1861 Canadian Census in Newcastle, a dressmaker. She married William Morrison in, say, 1866.[37] He was born ca. 1840 in NB, of Scottish ancestry.[38] They were living near her widowed mother in Newcastle in the 1871 Canadian Census,[39] and were living across the river in Chatham in the 1881 Canadian Census.[40] She died on 9 Sept. 1884,[41] and he was not found in Chatham or Newcastle in the 1891 Canadian Census. They had at least two children:[42]

6. Mary Anne Fish, born on 5 Oct. 1845 in Newcastle, baptized on 20 Apr. 1846 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[51] was still unmarried and living with her mother in the 1871 Canadian Census, married James V. Benson, of Chatham, on  12 Mar. 1873 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church.[52] He was born ca. 1844 in NB,[53] possibly a son of Dr. Stafford and Sophia Elizabeth (Samuel) Benson,[54] and was a druggist in Chatham in 1874 and 1876, a merchant’s clerk in Chatham in 1880, and a druggist in Newcastle in the 1881 Canadian Census,[55] but he was not found in Newcastle or Chatham in the 1891 Canadian Census. She died on 3 Feb. 1884,[56] aged 38 years, and was buried on 6 Feb. 1884 in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham, NB.[57] They had at least 3 children:

a. James Frederick Benson, baptized on 11 Mar. 1874 in St. Mary’s Chapel, Chatham, NB,[58] apparently died before the 1881 Canadian Census.

b. Gertrude Sophia Benson, born ca. Feb. 1876, baptized on 17 Mar. 1876 in St. Mary’s Chapel, Chatham, never married, died in July 1931, and was buried in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham Head, NB, on 20 July 1931, aged 55 years, 5 months.[59]

7. Hiram Fish Jr., born on 23 Feb. 1848 in Newcastle, baptized on 28 Apr. 1848 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[61] was still living with his mother in the 1871 and 1881 Canadian Censuses in Newcastle, a clerk and laborer. He never married, and was living with his brother John A. Fish in Melrose, MA, in the 1920 Federal Census. He died after 1920.[62]

8. George Maltby Fish, born on 27 Jan. 1850 in Newcastle, baptized on 2 Apr. 1850 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[63] died on 20 July 1856.[64]

9. John Albert Fish, born on 6 Mar. 1852 in Newcastle, baptized on 10 May 1852 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[65] was still living with his mother in the 1871 Canadian Census, but was not found in Newcastle in the 1881 or 1891 Canadian Censuses. He married Louise M. (___) late in life, and they were living in Melrose, Middlesex Co., MA, in the 1920 federal census.[66] He was living in Melrose, MA, in 1918, where he described himself as an historian, and compiled most of the Maltby family history up until 1918, visiting the family homes in Scarborough and Sunderland, England. He died sometime after 1920.[67]

            B. Thomas2 Maltby, born on 20 Nov. 1818 in Newcastle, NB, married 1.) Mary Morgan in 1838, and 2.) Margaret Anderson Keynes, of Newcastle, on 26 Jan. 1854 in Chatham.[68] (Continued.)

            C. Robert2 Maltby, born on 26 Oct. 1820 in Newcastle, never married. He was a tanner and currier, and moved to California, probably during the gold rush. He died in Petaluma, Sonoma Co., CA, on 6 Sept. 1862.[69]

            D. George Maltby, born on 6 Sept. 1822 in Newcastle, baptized on 22 Dec. 1822 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Chatham, NB,[70] died on 6 Sept. 1833 in Newcastle,[71] aged 11 years, and was buried in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham on 10 Sept. 1833.[72]

            E. John2 Maltby, born on 8 Jan. 1825 in Newcastle, baptized on 6 Mar. 1825 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[73] married Eliza Ann Meagher, daughter of Joseph and Mary Ann (Mann) Meagher, on 18 Feb. 1851 in Dalhousie, Restigouche Co., NB.[74] (Continued in Maltby Family of the Yukon.)

            F. Margaret2 Maltby, born on 2 Apr. 1828 in Newcastle, baptized on 22 June 1828 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[75] married Charles Simonds, Esq., of Dalhousie, NB, son of Capt. Richard and Ann (Charters) Simonds,[76] on 16 June 1847 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church, in Chatham, NB.[77] Capt. Richard Simonds was a son of James and Hannah (Peabody) Simonds, Esq., of Saint John, NB.[78] The will of James Simonds, Esq., of Portland, St. John Co., NB, dated 2 Dec. 1823, and probated on 16 Mar. 1831, he named his second and third sons, Charles and Richard Simonds, as co-executors.[79] There were a number of other Simonds' wills probated in St. John County, NB, including an Edward Simonds, of Saint John, NB, in whose will, dated 26 Nov. 1819, he mentioned his brother Charles Simonds, to whom assigned a mortgage given by John Charters of lands in Northumberland Co., NB.[80] This same Charles Simonds was a co-executor of the will of Frances Lawton, widow of Thomas Lawton, merchant of Saint John, NB, in 1818,[81] and he was called “friend” and named as a co-executor in the will of William Donald, of Saint John, in 1827.[82] James Simonds, Esq., the father of Charles and Richard Simonds, had been administrator of the estate of Richard Symonds, of Saint John, who died intestate in 1799, with William Simonds and Hugh Johnston as his bondsmen,[83] and Richard was probably James’ father. Thomas Lawton and William Simonds, both merchants in Saint John, appear together as bondsmen in several probate records.

           Charles Simonds, the husband of Margaret (Maltby) Simonds, died in Victoria or Vancouver, BC, in the late 1860s.[84] After the death of her husband, Margaret (Maltby) Simonds moved to London, England, in 1870, and changed the spelling of her last name to “Symonds,”[85] which was probably the original spelling anyway. Her sons Richard and Charters also spelled their names that way. In the 1881 British Census she was living with her sons, Charters and Richard Symonds, in Southwark, St. Thomas, Surrey, England.[86] She died on 11 Feb. 1899 in London.[87] She had five children:[88]

            1. Capt. Richard John Symonds, born in ca. 1849 in Dalhousie, NB,[89] served in the British Royal Navy, and the Royal Naval Reserve, from which he retired in 1899, but he probably never married. In the 1881 British Census he was still unmarried and living in the household of his brother, Charters J. Symonds, and widowed mother in Southwark St. Thomas, Surrey, England.[90] He died in July 1910 in London.[91]

            2. Helen Anne Simonds, born ca. 1850 in Dalhousie, NB,[92] married Lt. Thomas Howard Fletcher, son of Thomas W. Fletcher, of Lawneswood House, Staffordshire, England,[93] in 1867, and they were living in St. John, NB, until 7 May 1868, when she and her husband, along with her brother, Charles, were drowned by the upsetting of a boat near Port Royal, Bermuda.[94] They were both buried in Saint Anne’s Church Cemetery in Southampton Parish, Bermuda. They had no children.

            3. Dr. Charters James Symonds, born in July 1852 in Dalhousie, NB, moved to London in 1870 with his mother after his father died, and married Fanny Marie (___), in 1887 in London. In the 1881 British Census he was a surgeon living in Southwark St. Thomas, Surrey, England, with his widowed mother and brother, Lt. Richard J. Symonds, and was still unmarried.[95] John Albert Fish wrote: “He was a Colonel in World War I, in charge of hospitals in Malta and Solonika, and after the war was a hospital inspector in England.” He died on 14 Sept. 1932 in Hendon, Middlesex Co., Great Britain.[96] They had 2 sons:[97]

            a. Dr. Charles Putnam Symonds, born on 11 Apr. 1890 in Marylebone, London, a physician, married Edythe Eva “Peggy” Dorton in July 1915, and had 2 sons by 1918. John Albert Fish wrote: “He attended Oxford College, and joined the Motor Cycle Corps as a dispatch rider in World War I, and was among the first expeditionary force that went to France in 1914. Wounded in the thigh, he returned to college to complete his courses in 1915, was married, and then returned to the war doing hospital work.” He died on 7 Dec. 1978 in Barnet, Middlesex Co., Great Britain,[98] and she died in 1981.

            b. John “Jack” Charters Symonds, born ca. 1891 in London, was still unmarried in 1918. He was also in World War I, in charge of automobile transportation at a supply base.[99]

4. Charles Simonds Jr., born ca. 1854 in Dalhousie, NB,[100] drowned by the upsetting of a boat that also took the lives of her sister, Helen (Simonds) Fletcher, and her husband, Lt. Thomas Howard Fletcher, on 7 May 1868 near Port Royal, Bermuda.[101] He was buried with his sister and brother-in-law in Saint Anne’s Church Cemetery in Southampton Parish, Bermuda.

5. John Simonds, born ca. 1857 in Dalhousie, NB, was killed by accident at St. John, NB, at the age of 4 or 5. Apparently he was playing in some street excavation and it caved in and he was smothered.[102]

 

 

(VI.) Thomas2 Maltby, eldest son of Thomas1 Baker Maltby, Capt. ThomasA, JohnB Jr., JohnC, WilliamD; born on 20 Nov. 1818 in Newcastle, Northumberland Co., NB, married 1.) Mary Morgan, supposedly a native of Belfast, Ireland, in 1838 in Newcastle, NB.[103] She was born in 1817, and died on 21 Aug. 1851 in Newcastle,[104] aged 34 years, after the 1851 Canadian Census. She was buried in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham, NB.[105] He remarried to 2.) Margaret Anderson Keynes, of Newcastle, her half‑sister, daughter of William and Catherine (___) (Morgan) Keynes, of Newcastle, on 26 Jan. 1854 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Chatham, NB, by Rev. Sam Bacon.[106] She was born ca. 1822 in NB.[107]

            On 20 July 1840 Thomas Maltby purchased a tract of land in Newcastle from his father Thomas B. Maltby that had been public land.[108]

            Thomas Maltby was living in Newcastle in the 1851,[109] 1861,[110] 1871,[111] 1881,[112] and 1891 Canadian Censuses, where he was a carpenter and undertaker.[113] He was also active in St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Newcastle. He was elected as St. Andrew’s Church Warden continuously from 1871 to 1878, and served on the vestry almost continuously from 1870 until his death.[114] In Hutchinson’s New Brunswick Directory for 1865-1866, Thomas Maltby was listed as living on King Street in Newcastle, a builder, and his son Benjamin was also listed on King Street, a joiner.[115] In Lovell’s Canadian Directory for 1871 Thomas Maltby was listed as a resident of King Street, Newcastle, a carpenter.[116] Margaret died on 13 June 1893 in Newcastle, aged 70 years, and was buried from St. Andrew’s Church on 21 June 1893.[117] Thomas died on 14 Mar. 1900 in Newcastle, aged 82 years,[118] and was buried from St. Andrew’s Church on 17 Mar. 1900.[119]

            The biographical sketch of Thomas Maltby in Willis Hamilton’s Dictionary of Miramichi Biography says that he “learned the trade of carpenter and joiner from his father and was hired as a ship carpenter by Joseph Russell in 1841. Two years later he established his own carpentry business in Newcastle. Meanwhile, he began doing undertaking work, the largest part of which was the building of wooden coffins. A point of pride with him was that he had built the casket in which ‘King Julian, chief of the Micmac Indians’ was buried in 1868. From the 1880s onward his undertaking service was prominently advertised in the Union Advocate. In 1888 he and his son Richard L. Maltby were in partnership. [He] was a warden of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church.”[120] John Albert Fish wrote: “He was a carpenter—manufacturer and an undertaker in Newcastle. He was a hard working, industrious man, a staunch member of the Sons of Temperance, and a faithful follower in its cause. He was a strict Episcopalian, a constant and faithful attendant of the church, and a man of good character and highly respected in the community.[121]

            In 1871 Thomas Maltby was a census taker for Newcastle’s Division No. 2, and his handwriting and signature can be found on the census pages for that town.[122]

            Thomas Maltby had 7 children by Mary Morgan, and 5 more children by Margaret Anderson Keymes:[123]
           
A. George Maltby, born on 6 May 1839 in Newcastle, baptized on 28 Oct. 1839 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Chatham, NB,[124] died on 21 May 1843 in Newcastle, aged 4 years, and was buried in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham on 23 May 1843.[125]

            B. Benjamin3 Maltby, born on 3 May 1841 in Newcastle, baptized on 17 Jan. 1842 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[126] mentioned in the 1857 will of his grandfather Thomas B. Maltby, was still unmarried and living with his father in the 1861 Canadian Census, a carpenter, and was called a joiner in Hutchinson’s New Brunswick Directories.[127] He died on 21 Dec. 1869,[128] presumably in Newcastle, unmarried.

            C. Robert Maltby, born on 27 June 1843 in Newcastle, baptized on 25 Sept. 1843 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[129] died on 6 Jan. 1851 in Newcastle.[130]

            D. Thomas3 Maltby, Jr., born on 2 Oct. 1845 in Newcastle, baptized on 20 Apr. 1846 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[131] was enumerated with his father’s family in the 1871 Canadian Census in Newcastle, but died on 9 May 1871,[132] presumably in Newcastle, unmarried.

            E. Charles3 Maltby, born on 30 Jan. 1848 in Newcastle, baptized on 28 Apr. 1848 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[133] married Elmira Woodward or Woodworth, of Newcastle, in 1870.[134] She was born on 23 Apr. 1846 on Prince Edward Island,[135] and was baptized as an adult, the wife of Charles Maltby, on 27 Aug. 1873 in St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle.[136] They were living in Newcastle in the 1871,[137] 1881,[138] and 1891 Canadian Censuses,[139] and in Nelson, British Columbia, in the 1901 census, where he was a carpenter.[140] Charles was a vestryman in St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Newcastle, almost continuously from 1871 to 1895.[141] Charles left no further records in St. Andrew’s Church after 1895, and he moved from New Brunswick to British Columbia in 1896,[142] and settled in Nelson, BC, where he worked for the Hamilton Powder Company.[143]

            In the sketch of Frank George Graham in “Crowsnest and Its People” published in the Alberta Heritage’s Our Future Our Past, the author wrote “For some reason he [Frank George Graham] and his father-in-law Charles Maltby, became interested in British Columbia, probably on Mr. Graham’s part, because of his interest in lumbering. Mr. Maltby had been a militia artilleryman and some years earlier been ordered to stand by to go west on duty and had been very disappointed when the trip was cancelled, which may account for his interest in the west. In 1896 they decided to go west and see for themselves what it was like. After looking at the Okanagan and other areas they decided that Nelson would be what they wanted. Mr. Maltby found employment with the Hamilton Powder Company and Mr. Graham a partnership in a barber shop.

            “Mrs. Maltby, with her daughter Gertrude and son Hiram, together with Mrs. Graham and her two young sons, followed in January, 1897. Because the Crowsnest Branch of the railway was not completed they had to travel the main line of the CPR to Revelstroke, B.C., down the Arrow Lakes to West Robson and again by train to Nelson, arriving there on January 12.”[144]

            Charles Maltby died testate on 28 Dec. 1929 in Nelson, BC,[145] and his estate was probated in Nelson, BC, on 3 Jan. 1930.[146] His son, Hiram Leighton Maltby, and his grandson, Arthur Errol Graham, were named as executors of his estate, and he left his entire estate, real and personal, to his son-in-law Frank G. Graham, of Coleman, Alberta.[147] Elmira died on 16 Sept. 1938 in Nelson, BC, aged 89 years,[148] evidently at the home of her son, Hiram Leighton Maltby, and her estate was before the Nelson, BC, Superior Court for probate in 1939.[149] They had children:[150]

1. George Howard Maltby, born in Jan. 1871 in Newcastle, baptized on 1 Mar. 1871 in St. Andrew’s Church,[151] died in Jan. 1882 in Newcastle, and was buried from St. Andrew’s Church on 9 Jan. 1882, aged 11 years.[152]

2. Mary Edith4 Maltby, born in 1873 in Newcastle, baptized on 17 Sept. 1873 in St. Andrew’s Church,[153] married Frank George Graham on 26 Dec. 1893 in Northumberland Co., NB.[154] He was born on 14 July 1870 in Springfield, NB,[155] and they moved to Nelson, BC, with her father’s family in 1896. In 1902 they moved to the town of Frank, Northwest Territory, where he was a barber,[156] then they moved to Coleman, Alberta, in December, 1903, where he continued as a barber and was active in civic affairs, served on the school board, as the town fire chief, and later the postmaster.[157] They were living in Coleman, Alberta, in 1911,[158] and were still living in Coleman, Alberta, in 1930 when her father’s estate was in probate. She died in 1929 in Coleman, AB, and he died there in 1937.[159] They had children:[160]

a. Arthur Errol Graham, born on 4 June 1895 in Newcastle,[161] served in World War I, named as a co-executor of the will of Charles Maltby, of Nelson, BC, in 1929,[162] married Louise Price in 1922. He was a coal miner and she was a teacher, and they lived in Crowsnest Pass, AB.[163] They had a son:

1. John Graham, graduated from University of Alberta in Electrical Engineering, married Dorothy Wilton-Clark, and moved to Corona Del Mar, CA.[164] They had 2 sons.

b. Charles “Charlie” Maltby Graham, born on 8 Sept. 1896 in Newcastle,[165] married Charlotte Easton. He was a hockey player and a painter and decorator, and he died in 1968.[166] They had a son and 2 daughters.[167]

3. Charles Stanley Maltby, presumably a twin, born in 1877 in Newcastle, baptized on 12 Dec. 1877 in St. Andrew’s Church,[178] also died in Jan. 1882 in Newcastle, and was buried from St. Andrew’s Church on 12 Jan. 1882, aged 4 years.[179]

4. Annie/Agnes Gertrude4 Maltby, presumably a twin, born in 1877 in Newcastle, baptized on 12 Dec. 1877 in St. Andrew’s Church,[180] married William Henry “Harry” Houston, son of Robert and Amelia (Lang) Houston, after 1901, and was living in Nelson, BC, in 1911.[181] He was born in 1877 in Alton, ON. She died in 1921 in Nelson, BC. She had 4 children:[182]

a. Rae Houston

b. William Houston

c. John Houston

d. Amelia Houston

5. Hiram4 Leighton Maltby, born on 11 Aug. 1883 in Newcastle,[183] baptized on 31 Oct. 1883 in St. Andrew’s Church,[184] was an office clerk in Nelson, BC, living with his parents in the 1901 Canadian Census, was also married living in Nelson, British Columbia, in 1911,[185] and in Lethbridge, Alberta, in 1930.[186] He died on 11 Jan. 1974 in Penticton, BC, aged 90 years.[187] His wife may have been the Corinne Maltby who died in Penticton, BC, on 25 Apr. 1977, aged 85 years.[188]

            F. William3 James Maltby, born on 13 Dec. 1849 in Newcastle, baptized on 2 Apr. 1850 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[189] was still unmarried and living with his father in the 1871 Canadian Census, a house carpenter. He married 1.) Sophia Morrell, of Newcastle, in ca. 1874, and 2.) Margaret Lowerie, of Newcastle, on 1 Dec. 1885 in Newcastle.[190] (Continued in Maltby Family of New Brunswick Part II.)

            G. Mary Morgan Maltby, born on 21 Aug. 1851 in Newcastle,[191] probably died in infancy, no baptismal record was found for her in St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Chatham.

            H. John Kirton Maltby, born on 26 Mar. 1854 in Newcastle, baptized on 4 Feb. 1855 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[192] was also enumerated with his father's family in Newcastle in the 1871 Canadian Census, but died on 18 May 1871,[193] presumably in Newcastle.

            I. Lt. Col. Richard3 Leighton Maltby, born on 8 Sept. 1856 in Newcastle, baptized on 12 Oct. 1856 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[194] married Margaret “Maggie” Weston, adopted daughter of Alexander and Phoebe (Walthen) Williston, of Bay du Vin, Miramichi, NB, on 26 Nov. 1880 at Bay du Vin.[195] She was born on 7 Nov. 1857 in NB.[196] He died testate on 27 May 1915 in Newcastle,[197] of pneumonia, and was buried in Miramichi Cemetery from St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle, on 30 May 1915.[198] His will was dated 18 June 1910, and probated on 19 July 1915. He left his entire estate to his wife, Margaret Maltby, and named her as his executrix.[199] She died sometime after 1919.[200] They were living in Newcastle in the 1881 Canadian Census next door to his father, where he was a carpenter,[201] and in the 1891 Canadian Census he was living in his father’s house, where he was an undertaker.[202] In the 1901 Canadian Census they were still living in Newcastle, where he was still listed as an undertaker.[203] He was appointed a Justice of the Peace in Northumberland Co., NB, on 31 Jan. 1906.[204] He was elected to the vestry of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Newcastle, in 1881, 1884, 1885, 1886, 1887, 1891, 1894, 1895, and 1896.[205] He also served a term as Mayor of Newcastle, NB.[206]

            Richard L. Maltby, according to Hamilton’s biographical sketch, “worked in the undertaking business with his father, and in 1888 the two became partners, not only in that line of work but as dealers in mill and steamship apparatus and plumbing and heating supplies. After his father’s death he continued in business in partnership with his son Hiram K. Maltby, at least until 1907, when he was appointed police magistrate for Newcastle.”

            “Maltby joined the Newcastle Field Battery around 1872 as a gunner. He was a bombardier when he went to Bathurst with the battery in 1875 to guard the jail in which the Caraquet rioters were incarcerated. He was promoted to corporal in 1876, sergeant in 1880, lieutenant in 1892, captain in 1894, and major and commanding officer in 1897, as successor to Lieut. Col. Robert R. Call. He relinquished command in 1905.”

            “In 1899 Maltby supervised the construction of a new almshouse in Chatham, after the original structure was destroyed by fire. In 1900 he was elected to the Newcastle Town Council. He did not reoffer in 1901, but he was a member of the County Council for several years and warden in 1908. In 1900 he was appointed chairman of the Board of Health for Newcastle, was reappointed in 1904, and was named chairman of the County Health Board in 1911. He was a warden of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church and a leading Mason. Between 1889 and 1907 he was Worshipful Master of Northumberland Lodge during four one-year terms.”[207]

            Dorothy (Maltby) Verrill, in her Maltby-Maltbie Family History wrote of him in 1916: “It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the death of Col. Maltby of Newcastle. Col. Maltby had been a member of the 12th Newcastle Field Battery for nearly forty years, having risen from the rank of gunner to that of commanding officer. Upon the outbreak of the present European war, Colonel 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 he was a member, was most impressive, the casket being draped with the flag Col. Maltby loved so well, the Union Jack. The body was laid to rest with full military honors.[208] He had three children:[209]

            1. Thomas Alexander Maltby, born on 22 Jan. 1880 in Newcastle,[210] baptized on 5 Nov. 1881 in St. Andrew’s Church, died on 6 Nov. 1881 in Newcastle.[211]

            2. Mary4 Ethel “Effie” Keymes Maltby, born on 13 Nov. 1882 in Newcastle,[212] baptized on 3 Dec. 1882 in St. Andrew’s Church,[213] married 1.) Harry Daniel Orr, of Old Town, ME, son of A.L. and E.C. Orr, on 1 Aug. 1906 in St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle.[214] He was born ca. 1880 in Old Town, ME, and died on 10 May 1910.[215] She was educated at Harkins School in Newcastle, graduated from Montreal General Hospital in 1914,[216] became a nurse, and went to France in April 1915, working among the wounded soldiers in World War I.[217] She remarried to 2.) Charles Henry Gough, an officer, in France, after 1916, but before 1918. He was apparently from Tavernsham, England.[218] They returned to Newcastle after the war,[219] and she became a nursing supervisor at Miramichi Hospital in Newcastle.[220] She lived to be very old,[221] and died in the Miramichi Senior Citizens Home in Chatham, NB, on 31 Jan. 1971.[222] Charles Henry Gough apparently had at least one son by a prior marriage, and she had two more children by Charles Gough:[223]

a. Clarence Arthur Gough, born ca. 1895,[224] married Lily (Bird) Connors, a widow, daughter of Thomas Bird, of Kiddirminster?, England, on 1 Dec. 1920 in St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle.[225] She was born ca. 1889,[226] presumably in England.

b. Margaret Constance Gough, born in 1918 in England,[227] married James Byron Cuthbert Miller, of Newcastle, son of Henry S. Miller, on 6 Oct. 1938 in St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle. He was born on 1 Jan. 1910 in Newcastle,[228] and was a farmer, then an insurance agent in Newcastle.[229] He died in 1990 in Newcastle.[230]

c. Richard Maltby Gough, born on 30 Sept. 1920 in Newcastle, baptized on 21 Nov. 1920 in St. Andrew’s Church,[231] very tall and thin, he moved from Newcastle.[232] Marriage not found. He was living in Galt, ON, in 1971.[233]

            3. Hiram4 Kirton Wilkinson Maltby, born on 31 Jan. 1886 in Newcastle,[234] baptized on 7 Mar. 1886 in St. Andrew’s Church,[235] died on 5 Dec. 1918 in Newcastle,[236] unmarried, and was buried in Miramichi Cemetery from St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle, on 8 Dec. 1918, aged 32 years.[237]

            Richard L. Maltby and Margaret (Weston) Maltby also apparently adopted a daughter:

            4. Dorothy Margaret Everton, born ca. 1902,[238] married John Gordon Archibald, of Chatham, NB, son of John and Mary Jane (Jardine) Archibald, on 27 Sept. 1922 in Newcastle. He was born on 15 Dec. 1895 in Chatham,[239] and was a painter. She was called “adopted daughter of Mrs. R.L. Maltby” in the marriage record, and witnesses were B.H. Maltby and Mary M. Gough.[240] They were living in Harrow, ON, in 1971.[241]

            J. Hiram3 Baker Maltby, born on 7 Oct. 1859 in Newcastle, baptized on 5 Jan. 1860 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[242] married Jessie Ullock, daughter of William and Jessie Ullock, of Chatham, NB, on 2 Nov. 1898 at St. Mary's Chapel‑of‑Ease, Chatham, NB, by Rev. Canon D. Forsythe.[243] She was a twin, born on 25 Sept. 1862 and baptized with her twin brother Albert Ullock on 15 Apr. 1863 in St. Mary’s Chapel, Chatham.[244] William Ullock was a stagecoach driver running “Ullock’s Stage” between Newcastle and Chatham three times daily.[245] Chatham is just across the Miramichi River from Newcastle, but the river is wide at that point, and the stagecoach probably had to run upstream some number of miles in order to cross safely. Hiram Baker Maltby was an undertaker in Campbellton, NB.[246] He has not been located in the 1891 Canadian Censuses in Northumberland Co., NB, but they were living in Campbellton, Restigouche Co., NB, in the 1901 Canadian Census.[247] He may have been the Hiram B. Maltby, engineer, living in Tacoma, WA, in 1891.[248] By 1918 he was a locomotive engineer working for the Canadian Pacific Railway, and they moved to Wetaskiwin, Alberta, in 1918,[249] and then lived in Edmonton, Alberta.[250] After his retirement they moved back to Newcastle, and lived with the widow of his brother, Richard L. Maltby. Jessie (Ullock) Maltby died on 9 June 1930 in Newcastle,[251] aged 65 [sic] years, and was buried in St. Paul’s Anglican Churchyard in Chatham Head, NB, on 11 June 1930,[252] with her parents. Hiram B. Maltby died in Sept. 1938 in Newcastle.[253] They had 4 children:[254]

            1. Jessie4 Alberta Maltby, born on 22 Dec. 1899 in Chatham, NB,[255] called “Alberta,” was living in Dalhousie, Restigouche Co., NB, in 1938 at the time of her father’s obituary.[256]

            2. Marion Sophia Maltby, born on 21 July 1901 in Campbellton, Restigouche Co., NB, died on 21 July 1901 in Campbellton, NB. She was not mentioned as a survivor of her father in his 1938 obituary.[257]

            3. Richard4 Angus Ullock Maltby, born on 24 Jan. 1903 in Campbellton, NB,[258] called “Ullock,” married Ethel Rebecca Branch, daughter of Allan P.  and Emma E. (Reid) Branch, on 14 Oct. 1929 in Chatham, NB,[259] and they settled in Toronto, Canada.[260] She was born on 29 Dec. 1901 in Bathurst, Gloucester Co., NB.[261] They presumably had children, names unknown.

            4. Dorothy4 Isabel Maltby, born on 28 June 1905 in Chatham, NB, called “Dorothy,” was living in Ottawa, Canada, in 1938.[262]

            K. Arthur Anderson Maltby, born on 11 Apr. 1861 in Newcastle, baptized on 2 May 1861 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[263] died on 23 Sept. 1863 in Newcastle.[264]

            L. Mary3 Marion Maltby, born on 5 Mar. 1863 in Newcastle, baptized on 27 Mar. 1863 in St. Paul’s Anglican Church,[265] died on 26 July 1907 in Newcastle, unmarried, and was buried from St. Andrew’s Church, Newcastle.[266] She was not found in the 1901 Canadian Census in Newcastle.
