Malby Maps was founded and is the brainchild of Andrew Mottram (whose middle name is Malby, the maiden name of his mothers family) following many hours sitting in his late grandfathers study trawling through his genealogy notes and correspondence files (pre-internet and email days!). Andrew was aware from his late grandfather (Terence Archer Malby) that there was a link between our line of the Malby family and a globe maker, Thomas Malby.


Who was Thomas Malby we hear you cry?


Thomas Malby was an acclaimed and famous globemaker of the early 19th century who set up Malby & Co that later became Malby & Son of Parker Street, London. Thomas Malby was most famous for his reissue in 1849 of the John Addison famous 36 inch terraqueous globe.


Andrew decided to launch Malby Maps in 2012 due to his own interest for travel (he could fly a plane before drive a car and has summitted a number of the highest mountains in the world, and has also been known to jump on his bike to cycle a few long-distant routes (Lands End to John O'Groats, London to Paris and London to Dublin all in the aid of charity)), adventure, maps and the Malby family heritage in the world of cartography, globe making and maps.
