Maltby, sent the following on Richard Maltby, and mentions it was odd to find this data in Yorkshire records.
"1219. Robert de Mauteby, son of Richard Maltby, gave to the Priory of St. Mary Sibthorpie all his rent from his salt works in Suffolk." Note by Mrs. Stevenson: "This is the first mention I find of Maltbys in Suffolk and this seems to be where Mauteby comes in and shows the connection with the Maltbys of Yorkshire. Notice the son is "Mauteby" while the father is "Maltby."
Whereas Mautby and Mawtbey are chiefly used in the Norfolk family, my earliest record there, circa 1140-1150, is a grant to Walter son of "Robert de Maltebi." Later we find:
