The Pursgloves of Maltby - [MALT]

By Malt was no more than a large hamlet at Domesday, to the east of Rotherham.  The local economy was purely agrecultural.  It was not until the 19th century with the opening of coal mines that the town developed.

Maltby Main Colliery opened in 1910 and was threatened with closure in 2013 due to geological problems

The parish church of St Bartholemew has a Saxon tower and though the church has been refurbished extensively over the years it is essentially Pre-Norman.
