Not got a clue ?? Page 6 … The Maltby family

Pam has passed these photos on to me … there appears to be a ‘certain certitude’ about their subjects.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Joseph Maltby (1822-1904) father of George and grandfather of Alice

 

Mary Maltby (nee Barker) (c 1817-1898) mother of George and grandmother of Alice


 

 

George Maltby (1854-1923), lace manufacturer, father of Alice

George Maltby was born at Radford, Nottingham, on June 1st 1854, the second son of Joseph and Mary (nee Barker).

He came to Ilkeston in 1868 and ten years later married Elizabeth Jane Sudbury, eldest daughter of butcher, grocer and farmer William and Mary (nee Gamble) of Oakwell Farm in Derby Road.

Like his father, George traded as a lace manufacturer, both in Ilkeston and Nottingham. For a short time he was a member of the Local Board in its late life, but ill-health meant that he had to spend some years away, in Colorado.


And is this another photo of Joseph Maltby, father of George, with a grand-daughter, perhaps young Alice Mary or Margaret Edith  ?


Alice Mary Maltby married Frances George Robinson, son of Samuel and Annie Rebecca (Ebbern) in August 1902 at St. Mary’s Church.
Alice’s brother, Bernard Whitman Maltby, married Lily May Robinson, sister of Frances George, in August 1910 at Holy Trinity Church.


Charles Maltby (1848-1928), lace manufacturer, uncle of Alice.

Charles was the oldest child of Joseph and Mary, born on March 16th 1848, at Radford, Nottingham.

He left Nottingham for Ilkeston in 1862 and in 1871 married Eliza Ann, eldest daughter of John Potter Atkins Long and Elizabeth (nee Milsome)

Charles also traded as a lace manufacturer and played a full part in the civic life of Ilkeston. For several years he served on the Local Board, served as Mayor of the town (1895-6), and again (1903-4), was on the School Board, acted as Churchwarden of St. Mary’s, and was Overseer of the Poor for almost 25 years.

For many years he was also an influential Freemason.
