The lineage of the name Maltby begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the region of Maultby in various counties throughout England. Maltby is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Maltby Early Origins



The surname Maltby was first found in Yorkshire at Maltby (Maultby) a former mining town and civil parish in South Yorkshire and/or at Maltby a village and civil parish in North Yorkshire. Maltby is also a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire. The Yorkshire locals are by far the larger of the place names. There are three distinct listings in the Domesday Book of 1086 and all are spelt Maltbi.

The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Malti," or "where the malt is made." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)

"This place was formerly the residence of a family of the same name, who continued in possession for several generations." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The parish of Acaster-Malbais in the union of York, partly in the Ainsty wapentake in the West Riding of Yorkshire was home to another branch of the family. "This place partly derives its name from the family of Malby, who flourished here for some centuries after the Conquest, until at length a daughter and heiress was married to Fairfax of Walton, created Viscount Emley." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Maltby were among those contributors:
