Frank Hubert Maybery, was born in the district of St Mathew's, Ipswich on the 30th November 1875 1 the son of Valentine William Maybery (the Congregational Minister of Burlington Road, Ipswich) and Clara Susan Maybery, née Sinnock. He had four siblings: Annie and Alfred (both older, born in Stoke Sub Ham, Somerset), Arnold (born in Ipswich, Suffolk) and Winifred (born in Bristol). Frank's parents appear to have both died prior to 1881.
On the 10th June 1907 Frank married Frances Ella Hadfield 2 at the Greenacres Chapel, Oldham, Lancashire.
Frank Maybery and his brothers Alfred and Arnold, and sisters Annie and Winifred emigrated to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, together with Mrs Eliza Gibbons their aunt who looked after the young Maybery children after their parents died 3. The brothers went into partnership as Real Estate Agents in Moose Jaw, then a rapidly growing city, where they specialised in selling farm land.
All the family were active members of St Andrews Presbyterian Church and the brothers are remembered as men of "religious habit, definite and clear in thought and deed".
Frank's wife Ella was much troubled with a serious eye complaint, because of which the family decided to return to England, where she could get up to date medical treatment, so in 1911 Frank brought his wife and their two daughters, Joyce Noel and Ruth Enid back to England. After settling them at St Paul's Road, Weston-Super-Mare 4 Frank returned to Canada to settle up his affairs 5, boarding the Titanic at Southamption as a second class passenger (ticket number 239059, £16). He was joined at Queenstown by a family friend, The Rev. Charles Kirkland.
Maybery died in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified. His and Ella's third daughter, Nancy Frances was born early in December that year.
