MALTBY Family History

Recorded as Maltby, Malteby, Maultby and originally Maltebi, this is an English surname. It is of locational origin from any of the places called Maltby in Lincolnshire and in the North and West Ridings of Yorkshire. The place name from Lincolnshire first appears as Maltebi in the famous Domesday Book of 1086, and derives from pre 7th century Danish-Viking personal name Malti meaning sharp or bitter, with the Norse suffix of "byr," meaning a farm or settlement. Locational surnames are usually "from" names.
