Got some details of Maud(e) of Bradford. Harriet Maude born Horsforth's father was from Bradford, I think his name was Miles, other details, but without my book I would be just guessing, if you think this might be of use let me know.

I have Maud/Maude Family in Bradford.
James Lea Maud/e (gardener then Brass Founder) b 1811 m Martha Jowitt b 1812 with children: Ellen 1836, Elizabeth 24 Jan 1838 both born at Eastwood Lodge in Keighley. The family moved to New Bridge Street in Keighley where Martha 31 Mar 1840 & Willaim 20 Jul 1842 were born and I believe Ellen died. The family then moved to Denhohue, Thornton, Bradford, York where James Lea 24 Dec 1844 & Isaac Lea 12 Jun 1847 were born. The Family then moved to the United States of America where Hannah Sophia was born abt 1849 in New Britian, Hartford, Connecticut. The father and 5 children (Eliza, Martha, William, James & Isaac) where found in the 1850 Connecticut Census in Meriden, New Haven County. Mother and baby Hannah are missing. The family then is found in Canadian Census 1871 Ontario, South Waterloo, Dumfries North, pg 18 & 19. James 60 with Eliza 59 and children Martha 31; William 28; James 26; Isaac 24; & Hannah 22.
Is this part of your family? Do you have other information?

My GGGrandmother Jennilee Maud Boswell was to have been born in Wakefield, York England on April 8, 1873 (1874). I cannot find any information on her.
Her parents were Harriet Smith Maud and Harry Maud. She immigrated to Canada around age 12, living near Toronto and Hamilton and eventually (1902)moved with husband and children to Buffalo NY, where I live.
Please let me know if you think we have a connection.

Hi Lee,

Maude, Mawde, Mawhood, Maut, Maute, Mowit(t), and quite a few other derivations of the same name have been around for many years. Not all of the people with those names are related but a great majority of them are. The name originally comes from de Monte Alto, which was the original name. It was brought over to England around 1066-1070 by Eustace de Monte Alto, who was Baron and Senechal of the County of Chester under Hugh Lupus, the Earl of Chester. Eustace was Lupus's 2nd in command. Eustace had 5 sons and the later barons were descended from Ralph de Monte Alto, Eustace's 3rd son. Around the year 1080-1085, the name was changed to Montalt (or de Montalt) and it remained that right up until the early to mid 1400's when it seemed to morph into Maude and it's derivatives...although Mowit/Mouat seems to be a little earlier than this as it's a Scottish derivative that seems to have been hanging around since 1250-1300. The Maude family were, and are still, quite a prominent family in Yorkshire and a couple of other counties in England, but are mainly concentrated in Yorkshire. The present Viscounts Hawarden are from the family. Since you have family from Bradford, which I do myself (but not Maudes) that are Maudes, there is a possibility that you are related to the main family through a side branch, as they did have possessions and such in the area, plus they had fairly large families.

In any case, I hope that's been of help to you. If you're wondering why I have all that information about the Maudes, I'm a descendant of the main family, myself, and I've done quite a bit of research on the history of the family.

Hi Lee

Your info is very interesting. I have traced my tree back to Joespth Maude b. 1801 (details scant). His son - Joseph - b. 1822 Rothwell, Yorks. Any more info on the family name would be most welcome as and when.
