Sophia Morrell, of Newcastle,[1] in ca. 1874.[2] She was born ca. 1850 in New Brunswick,[3] the daughter of David and Sophia H. Morrell, of Newcastle, who had a daughter Sophia, aged 11, in the 1861 Canadian Census.[4] David Morrell may have been a son of Hugh Morell, the first Newcastle Postmaster, who had come to New Brunswick from Ireland around 1826, by his wife, Margaret Ross, who had remained behind in Ireland.[5]

            In the 1881 Canadian Census William and Sophia Maltby were living in Newcastle, where he was a carpenter, and her widowed father, David Morell, was living with them.[6] William J. Maltby was elected to the vestry of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Newcastle, in 1880, 1885, and 1886.[7]

            Sophia Maltby died in Dec. 1883 in Newcastle, and was buried from St. Andrew’s Church on 26 Dec. 1883, aged 33 years.[8] William James Maltby remarried to 2.) Margaret Lowerie, daughter of Walter and Sarah (Morrell) Lowerie, of Newcastle,[9] in ca. 1886.

He died on 4 Dec. 1898,[12] presumably in Newcastle. In the 1901 Canadian Census, “Mrs. W. Maltby” was still living in Newcastle, a widow, with only her sons Ernest and Walter, and daughter Maud.[13] She died on 10 Jan. 1946, aged 92 years.[14]

            In the 1901 Canadian Census Benjamin Maltby was unmarried, working as a Tinsmith, and living in the family of J. Haley and Euphimia Phinney, in Newcastle.[21]

            Benjamin F. Maltby lived in Newcastle, where he was engaged in the tinware, plumbing and heating, and appliance business with his son, William C. Maltby. Willis D. Hamilton's biographical sketch of him says that he “learned the tinsmithing trade from J. Haley Phinney, and founded the B.F. Maltby Co., a plumbing and heating firm in Newcastle, in 1904. In 1906 he was advertising stoves of all types for sale and plumbing and heating installations and repairs. For many years his was the principal business of its kind in the town. In 1949, in partnership with his son W. C. Maltby, he bought A.C. McLean & Sons, the largest plumbing and heating firm in Chatham. The business was still operating under B.F. Maltby’s name thirty years after his death.”[22] He was also the Fire Chief in 1917. Hamilton continues, “Maltby was a member of Newcastle’s volunteer fire brigade for many years and was named chief in 1917, as successor to Charles M. Dickison. He was both a member of the Presbyterian-United Church and a supporter of the Salvation Army. His second wife, Susan I. Holt, was with the Red Cross Service in World War I.

Frederick John Jones, born on 19 Oct. 1850 in Jones’ Crossing, NB, was the son of John and Grace (Russell) Jones, and he married first to Jane Keating, daughter of Patrick and Margaret (Hutchison) Keating, who was born in Jan. 1852 in Whitney, NB, and died 6 Jan. 1885, age the age of 33. Frederick Jones remarried to Margaret Goodfellow, daughter of John and Alice Jane (Williston) Goodfellow, who was born on 21 Aug. 1868. Frederick Jones died 20 Apr. 1894, aged 43 years, and his widow remarried to Justus A. McKay. She died in 1932, aged 63 years. The wife of Frederick Jones found in the birth records of Bessie Jones’ sisters Mabel and Henrietta Jones from the on-line New Brunswick Birth Record Archives, from Northumberland County CD 9, Book 3, P. 2, #400, found at http://www.gov.nb.ca/scripts/supply/archives/govrecs/rssd/100s/141/141a2-2/index.asp, was Margaret Goodfellow, so they must have been sisters of Bessie Jones. Hamilton says that John Jones came from Camborne, Cornwall, England, the son of a John and Elizabeth Jones; Grace Russell was a sister of the Presbyterian missionary Samuel Russell, and was daughter of James and Ann (Carruthers) Russell, of Ireland; Patrick Keating was a native of Ireland, and came to New Brunswick in 1827; and Margaret Hutchison was a daughter of James Hutchison, a Presbyterian, who came to New Brunswick from Scotland in 1818, and his wife Judith Murphy, who was Catholic. Elizabeth Macaluso, however, disagrees that the parents of Frederick Jones were John Jones and Elizabeth Rowe, however these may have been Frederick’s grandparents. Williston, Descendants of John Bailey Williston, p. 31-32, shows the parents of Margaret Goodfellow as John Williston Goodfellow and Alice Jane Goodfellow, who were married in South Esk, NB, on 14 Sept. 1857, and on p. 8 that the parents of John Williston Goodfellow were John Goodfellow and Mary Williston, daughter of John Bailey Williston.
