Early Origins of the Maltravis family


The surname Maltravis was first found in Somerset where the first record of the was found during the reign of Henry I., when "Hugh Maltravers was a witness to the Charter made by that Monarch to the Monks of Montacute. " Another Maltravers "during the 5th of Stephen gave one thousand marks of silver and one hundred pounds for the widow of Hugh Delaval and lands of the said Hugh, during the term of fifteen years. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Some believe that Lord Maltravers took part in the cruel murder of Edward II. After the death, he fled to Germany where he stayed for a number of years due to the judgement of death awaiting him should he return to England. Eventually he was granted a pardon by Edward III for his services abroad and was granted safe passage. Edward III granted Maltravers Governor of the Isles of Guernsey, Alderney and Sarke.

It should be noted that the death of Edward II., at Berkeley Castle was surrounded with controversy. Some say he was murdered, others say he died of natural causes. Whatever the case, Maltravers was one of the people charged with tending to the care of Edward II.

Migration of the Maltravis family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Maltravis family to immigrate North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
