George Keith Maitland and Christina Mary Theresa McDonell

George Keith Maitland

Another set of photos from Charles Daniel. George Keith Maitland (1854-1896) is my great great grandfather and was the youngest son of George Ramsay Maitland and Alice Anne Nisbet. He was born in Edinburgh and the 1871 Census shows him being at  Hailey Bury College School in Great Amwell, Hertfordshire. He was a tea planter in Ceylon, and I’ve uploaded photos of his estate here

From what I understand he died in England. He was riding a pony and trap, and the pony was frightened by a car. The pony bolted and he was thrown and mortally injured. Somewhere there is a press cutting about the incident and if I ever find it I’ll add it to the blog.

He married Christina Mary Theresa McDonell in around 1877:
