M. P. Maitland

(A biographical sketch by his grandson, Maurice L. "Bud" Haynes, KV7G@prodigy.net)

In the late 1920's M. P. Maitland was a State deputy constable, a state game warden and also served 2 terms as a magistrate in Eddystone, PA. Some time in the mid to late 1940's he drove a bus for Notre Dame School in Moylan.

In 1958 his son, M.L. Maitland, was appointed as Chief of the Delaware County Detectives.

His grandson, William Maitland, was Chief of Police in Eddystone I believe
around 1980.

Another grandson is Harry Maitland who is and has been a reporter for the
Chester/Delaware County Times for I think about 50 years.

M. P. Maitland died in 1950.

Also, from a "75 Years Ago" newspaper clipping: "A 200-gallon still, 100 barrels of mash and 60 gallons of liquor were taken from the premises at Ridge Road and Market Street, Linwood, after a raid by State Detective E. A. Davis and Deputy Constable M. P. Maitland"
