|Your Mary Ann Maltby is in Wellow, Nottinghamshire in 1841 in the household of Charles Smith. She is listed as a servant there is no occupation mentioned. In the same dwelling house, but listed as a separate household, are Joseph Bell ,age 25 agricultural labourer and his wife Fanny age 20 both Nottinghamshire born.
I have found a marriage in 1840 for Joseph Bell and Fanny Maltby, which seems to be pretty indicative. (Remember ages are not accurate on the 1841 because of the rounding)
There is no suitable Fanny or Frances Maltby on the 1841 in Nottinghamshire, the ones there are are with their husband and children and/ or the wrong age.
Name: Fanny Maltby Year of Registration: 1840 Quarter of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec District: Newark County: Lincolnshire/ Nottinghamshire Volume: 15 Page: 1051
Fanny and Joseph do not appear on the 1851 or 1861 census, so it is possible they also emigrated. With the ‘wrong’ name you wouldn’t have found them.
