    , William Maltby, whose first wife was Rachel, as we know from the following: (from Rev. A. N. Wakefield, Visar of Bawtry, June, 1936) "1669. Jeane, the daughter of William Maltby and Rachell his wife, was baptized the 29th day of October, 1669." (Certified Copy.) This is undoubtedly the "eldest daughter Jane", mentioned in the Will of William Maltby of Branford, Conn. 1710, who leaves her "these things which were her mothers". I think William's daughter Elizabeth was also by this wife as she names her first child "Rachel."
