               (He deceased in 1955)
VIII.3237. Floyd Charles Maltbie, b. 1910.

VIII.3238.  Maude Townshend, b. June 21, 1871; d. July 25, 1891.

The Townshends trace their ancestry back to Roger de Townshend, of Norfolk, England, before 1400 A.D. (as does the compiler through her great-grandmother, Nancy Townshend of New Haven, Conn.) The Marquis of Townshend is head of this fam- ily, long seated at Raynham Hall, Raynham, Norfolk. Capt. Charles Townshend of New Haven named his summer home at East Haven, Raynham, and his younger son was named Raynham. Raynham Hall has a "Queen's Room," in which Queen Ann once slept and Dorothy, wife of Horace Walpole, is said to haunt the Hall. The glories of Raynham passed away in bankruptcy--portraits and ancestral treasures sold and dis- persed--empty places on walls where pictures were removed. A sad ending to one of England's old families.

VII.1864. Emma Maltby, b. Mar. 19, 1846 (Caleb S.6, DeGrasse 5, Benj. 4, Dan.3, Dan.2, Wm.1). Mar. July 16, 1871, William A. Copp. Res. in New York City. Mrs. Copp was a member of the Colonial Dames, "being seventh in descent from Deputy Governor James Bishop; fifth from Capt. Samuel Maltby and fourth from Capt. Edward Russell." (This, of course, gave Mrs. Copp two descents from Maltby.)

VIII.3239.  William Maltby Copp, b. Sept. 18, 1872, Yale, 1896; unmar.
                 1920. Res. Spring Island, Port Royal, S. Carolina.
VIII.3240.  Ethel Maltby Copp, b. Sept. 1, 1875.

Although we met infrequently I always admired "Billy" Copp. He was tall, slender, very curly hair so light it was almost "tow." My memory holds two pictures of "Billy." Usually while at Yale he went about town in a gray suit, rather on the ordinary. The second picture, and my last meeting with him, was in June 1895, Commencement week, when he stopped to chat on his way to a Fraternity House tea. Here was a vision of New York's Fifth Avenue, (of that period), a veritable fashion plate of full afternoon dress from the top of his silk hat to the soles of his patent leather shoes. As he left, so far as is known, no descendants, the compiler feels that just the bare record of his birth is not sufficient for "Billy" Copp.
