Maltby was an English clergyman of the Church of England. He became Bishop of Durham, 1837, controversial for his liberal politics, for his slightly naïve ecumenism, and for the great personal wealth that he amassed.
He also was a senator of the newly formed University College London and had strong connections to the University of Durham.
His public controversies and scandals included: Dining in public, with both Unitarians and with Roman Catholics; Presenting the Sovereign’s Orb at Queen Victoria’s coronation at the wrong moment.
