Families covered: Mawbey of Botleys, Mauteby of Kilworth, Mawtby (Mauteby) of Mawtby, Mawtby of Sparham
[Parts of this page, being the bits derived from the Visitation, were first included within MZmisc09 on 22.03.07.]

(1) BEB1841 mentions that "The name of this family has been written, Mawtebey, Maultby, Mauteby, Mawbie, Mawby, and Mawbey. The designation was assumed from the village of Mawtby, in Norfolk". BEB1841 uses Mauteby for the early generations, Mautbey or Mautebey for some intermediary generations, and Mawbey for the later generations. Visitation uses Mawtby throughout.
(2) There are a few differences between BEB1841 & Visitation for the early generations. We follow BEB1841.
