"under Washington and that it was signed by John Hancock.
As for the Huguenot tradition I have had that from some source before as the origin of our race and in this wise, viz. that the orig- inal brothers, or their ancestors, left North of France during the Huguenot persecution and landed in Wales on "the West of England, where they remained and afterwards came to America, of the worth of this it is hard to tell at this late day. Still it is the most prob- able version as New Rochelle was founded in 1625 by Huguenots at the time of the great emigration."
Note by the compiler. There are various errors in this record. The connection with Dudleys came through Benjamin (4) Maltbie's wife, Abigail Munger who was a dau. of Reuben and Elizabeth (Dudley) Mun- ger. "John Cornhill" should be Cornwall.
Tradition, is of course, purely a matter of handing down in- formation from parent to child, so it is not possible ever to deter- mine how far back a "tradition" dates. It is true that the first Maltby ancestor in England came from the north of France. As for the "landing in Wales"--and another Maltby descendant has it that their Maltby ancestor came from Wales--I may say I have only two ref- erences to the name connected with Wales, viz.
"A.D. 1226. (Fest of Fines, Lincolnshire. Edithde Malteby, and apparently her sisters, Alice and husband, Swan Cose, Lecia and hus- band, Walter de Ponte, Ellen and husband, William Fiske, (and John de Baiocis, plaintiff) were deforciencts. They were expected to pro- vide "for every army in Wales a horse, a sack for carrying a load. . . .and that they should summon all the knights of the Barony through- out the whole of Lincoln. And that they should carry a hatchet to cut and burn wood before him in the Army of Wales." These services and customs they did not acknowledge.
The only other reference was of a Maltby living in Flint, Wales, about 1900.
An old newspaper clipping, probably before 1906(?) is headed: "Maltby Wins Tierney Cup.
Defeats W. W. Gile in Final Round at Wykagyl Country Club. New Rochelle, N.Y. Oct. 8. Finishing with the narrow margin of 1 up, F. C. Maltby defeated W. W. Gile in the final round for the Tier- ney cup on the links of the Wykagyl Country Club today."
There is also a clipping "Special to the New York Times.
Tallman - Maltby.
Greenwich, Conn. May 4---In the presence of fifty guests Mrs. Isabel Maltby of New York and John Tallman of New Rochelle, N.Y. were mar- ried in the First Presbyterian Church here this afternoon by the Rev. Dr. Charles G. Sewall, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Rye, N.Y.
A reception and supper at the Pickwick Arms for relatives and intimate friends followed the ceremony."
Insofar as is known, no other references have been given for Maltby in Wales, or of New Rochelle, New York.
