Title: 'Duke' Maxwell of Iowa and Oregon
Posted by: Anthony Maxwell
Date: 12 May 2001

I am looking for any information on Marmaduke Maxwell. He was born in England at Black Torrington, North Devon on 4th March 1843, son of John Goodman Maxwell and Eliza Harriette (Keyse).
Within the family he appears to have been know as 'Duke'. He seems to have gone 'abroad' before 1861 but it is not known where. There is apparently an entry for a Marmaduke Maxwell in the Iowa census' between 1834 and 1870 but I have not seen this record, can anyone help with this information? There is also an entry for a Marmaduke Maxwell in the Oregon Death Index between 1903 and 1998, again I have not seen this index and would appreciate any help from anyone who may have access to the index. There is only one other Marmaduke Maxwell that I know of and that is Marmaduke Constable Maxwell the brother of Lord Herries and as far as I know the name is unusual outside Great Britain. This is all the information I have and would appreciate any information to track down this lost relation.
