BIOGRAPHY: NORTHAMPTON CHRONICLE & ECHO 1961. DEATH OF MR BILL MARIS
Formerly Northampton’s oldest “newsboy” Mr Bill Maris died on Wednesday at St Edmund’s Hospital, Northampton, aged 89.
Mr Maris, who lived at 16 Semilong Place, Northampton for about 50 years until admitted to hospital last year, had delivered papers on his own Semilong round in Northampton for many years. He retired in 1958.
Born and educated in Northampton, Mr Maris was a hand finisher, working at home, until an injury to his hand forced him to give this up.
He started to assist his son, the late Mr William Maris, with his newspaper round some years later.
He was a keen sportsman in his youth, running being his main interest. He was also interested in pigeon racing.
Mr Maris is survived by his wife, Mrs Eleanor Maris, his sons Mr James Maris and Mr George Maris, and his daughter Mrs Ada Hill, all of Northampton. He leaves seven grandchildren and one great grandchild.
